A GLANCE AT OUR PROCESS

At Tunson Interiors a top priority is creating a smooth, easy and fun experience for the client on their design project. Design projects can feel very overwhelming and stressful with all that is involved, so Ciara has created a process and has formatted standards to create the best possible experience for the client. Below shows a very small sneak peak of some of the items provided and a few parts of the overall process.  

A GLANCE AT OUR PROCESS

Construction Check list

Construction Check list

At Tunson Interiors, a top priority is to make the design process as smooth, timely, organized and stress-free as possible for the client. This is a snip of a small portion of the construction checklist, that is provided to the client so that they are aware of each decision that will need to be made, dates, order of process and any notes or information for each decision.

Once a contract is established with a client, and the construction check list has been started, the client and Ciara will collaborate and look at images to determine the overall aesthetic desired. Once Ciara has a clear understanding of the desired style, she creates multiple concept boards for the client to review. The client may write notes, circle items and cross out items on the concepts. This gives Ciara a direction to work with and feel throughout the entire process.

Ciara Tunson takes pride in being involved in every aspect of the project. Once an architect is done with the floor plans, Ciara will redline and review the plans prior to submittal (if possible) and start to create preliminary furniture, electrical and built in plans. At Tunson Interiors we want each element of the project to be thought out as a whole. The electrical plans are created for floor outlet location, pre-wire locations, and any custom items that needs to be planned in framing stages.

Plumbing and Appliance Sneak Peak

Once plans are finalized, electrical plans have been created and pre-approved (changes can be made) plumbing and appliance locations are noted, and fixtures are selected. The client and Ciara will collaborate and select each fixture and finish type. Having this planned out will assist with the next design element, built ins.

Small preview of concepts

Small preview of concepts

Ciara feels that each design element needs to be throughout cohesively. Although each step will be approved and shown on it's own, built ins/lighting ideas/plumbing and materials are all conceived at the same time. This concept board will be provided to the client during the built in process, after plumbing has been selected. This will assist with the next step- Materials- Tile and lighting.

Tile Elevations

Tile Elevations

During the design process, all materials will be selected for the interior; flooring, wall finishes, accents, window/case/base/door/ etc. Tile for showers, backsplash, accents and floors can be one of the longest and largest portions of a project. Ciara will provide physical material options, elevations, spec sheets, plans and orders per area.

Electrical Decorative

This is a sneak peak of a spreadsheet with decorative lighting options. Ciara provides concept boards with multiple options prior to selection. This spreadsheet is provided after narrowing down the selections per area, and is used for pricing, ordering, tracking, receiving and installation of decorative lighting.

Furniture preliminary options

Furniture preliminary options

While there is much more to the design process than is shown here, towards the middle of the design project, furniture options will be provided. This shows just the preliminary concept board (per area) that Ciara will provide to the client. There may be multiple options per room, and once options are narrowed down, a spreadsheet with pricing and lead time will be provided.

Fabrics/finishes

Fabrics/finishes

Once furniture has been narrowed down, Ciara will carefully and thoughtfully select options for rugs, fabrics, finishes and accessories. All materials will be physically gathered, and Ciara will present client with options for selection. Once selected, proposals and orders will be created. At this point in the process, Ciara will order, track, create install sheets, and work with her crew to schedule the furniture installation.
