Interior Alchemy offers a variety of ways to work with us, depending on what services you need when designing your kitchen and bathroom. Remodels are examples of complex projects because they require coordination of many stakeholders to successfully complete – client, designer, installers, suppliers, manufactures, plumbers, electricians, framers, drywallers, painters…you get the idea. If you are completely new to remodeling or using a designer, our Pricing Guide can help you understand what various kitchen remodel budgets could achieve.
Because of the complexity involved, we do not accept full-service kitchen design projects where the total amount the client is willing to invest on their kitchen remodel is below $50,000 (for appliances, countertops, cabinetry, fixtures, installation, etc.). We can, however, help clients with layout and design, or portions of a kitchen project, even if your budget is below the full-service threshold.
A mid-level kitchen remodel with average finishes and appliance packages typically require client investments of $50,000 – $90,000.
If you have not planned to set aside an amount within or above this range, you will probably find greater satisfaction in using in-house designers at stores like Home Depot and IKEA.
However, if you are just craving a redesign to improve your kitchen’s functionality, maybe remove a wall, and you have a budget within or above that range, then your best bet, to gain the most value from your remodel is to hire an interior designer who will take the time to customize your space to exactly how you and your family function.
What kind of interior design projects do you do?interioralchemy12022-01-01T04:34:54+00:00
We take projects in the Portland Metro Area, Vancouver, and Salem.
On a case-by-case basis, we do accept a few limited projects outside of the service area depending on the scope, however, based on the distance outside of our service area, we may request a minimal mileage offset charge for miles traveled outside of our service area.
Even if your project is outside of this area, call us to find out if your special project can be served.
What should I know before I call Interior Alchemy?interioralchemy12019-06-28T23:34:43+00:00
Large retail or big box kitchen designers are salespeople who are not often trained in interior design. Their jobs are to sell cabinetry and other products for the home. They cannot take the time to listen to what makes you unique, get to know how you move through your kitchen, what functional pain points you experience in your home, or come up with clever custom solutions that make working in the most active room of the home easier for everyone.
Interior Alchemy’s magic elixir goes deeper than that. At our core, we believe that the homeowner IS the story of the design. Not only do we listen to who you are and how you use your space, but we work to find ways to customize your space to your needs and lifestyle. We don’t hide away all of your personal treasures, we celebrate them. We infuse the design with your story or your brand. We will share the story of who you are without having to speak.
