WHY SHOULD I EVEN BOTHER WITH HIRING A DESIGNER?
Interior design is still a field that is often misunderstood by those outside of the construction industry. That's totally ok if you don't understand exactly what it is we do. That's why we're here though....to help you through the process and act as an advocate and translator (of sorts) between you and other members of the project team. Don't speak contractor? That's ok. It's our job to help convey your wants and needs to the rest of the project team and deal with hiccups along the way. This all translates into a cohesive brand, a seamless permitting process and less change orders during construction. For you, this is just money in your pocket.
WHAT DOES THE PROCESS OF DESIGN LOOK LIKE?
In short, we listen, research, collaborate, and respond. We dive into each project head-first and put a heavy emphasis on your business, your space, and the functions of it. We believe two heads are better than one, so we work together on each project to make sure that you get the best ideas possible and that you end up with the best design solution that not only looks great, but works great.
WHAT IS THE ORIGIN OF THE NAME KNOT & COMPANY?
Good question. In fact, we hear it a lot. We really felt a tie (no pun intended) to the idea of collaborative design and think two entities are stronger together than individual units.
WHAT ARE YOUR PRICING OPTIONS?
Pricing varies depending on the size & scale of the project as well as the the scope of work. Let's get together to chat about your particular project & then we can give you a better idea on numbers. Most projects will be quoted a flat-fee rate. This is often a better pricing strategy, so that you know what to expect and that fees fit within the overall construction budget.
DO YOU HAVE AN AREA OF DESIGN THAT YOU SPECIALIZE IN?
We do! We offer hospitality design (restaurants & hotels) & commercial design (offices & retail). We love talking with existing businesses that need a little help defining how they'd like to be perceived by customers as well as new concept spaces that need full-service design.
WHAT MAKES YOU DIFFERENT THAN OTHER DESIGN FIRMS I'VE WORKED WITH?
We are interior designers that have architectural experience; we are focused on your space and how it functions. We are visual by nature, and do whatever it takes to communicate an idea to you, the architect, and/or contractor, whether that be images, 2d drawings, or 3d models.
