Kalamazoo, MI, March 10, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- Economic uncertainty, construction stagnation and the housing market crash have motivated an interior designer to revolutionize the way we purchase interior design.
Sondra Phillips, owner of a traditional interior design firm, founded a new company called Interior Design Schemes so that do-it-yourselfers could purchase color and design schemes which have all been pre-designed. Customers select from online design schemes which include material finishes for walls, floors, counters, millwork, trim and more. Upon ordering a scheme, customers are emailed product specifications and receive via the mail actual swatches and samples. They are also given contact information for ordering products.
These pre-packaged interior design schemes feature budget friendly products and finishes which have a unique "wow" factor and are locally available or quickly shipped from suppliers. Schemes work for home owners, contractors, developers, facilities managers, entrepreneurs and the DIY consumer.
Phillips explains, “After living through the economic effects of 911 and the housing crash, I realized that interior design is a luxury that many cannot afford and that the Do-It-Yourself movement is an undeniable reality.” She adds that the new business concept was formulated in response to the growing need for a lower cost alternative to achieve quality interior design options.
Assisting customers with visualizing how materials and finishes work together, Phillips built in images of what the finished product could look like. Each purchase also entitles the customer to one swap-out of a sample they might want to change and a telephone consultation with Phillips to make sure they understand the design scheme and how to implement their interior design.
The thing that customers seem to appreciate the most is that the long wait for a finished design is no longer a part of great interior design. There is no waiting for a consultant to create an interior design to your liking. Moments after a customer selects and purchases their favorite scheme, details about the scheme are emailed to them. Commerce has been steadily moving online over the past decade and now Interior Design Schemes has made purchasing interior design schemes available online as well.
