How It Works - More Information

The Decorist online interior design process makes designing a new room easy and affordable, in your style and at any budget. The biggest challenges of traditional online interior design are time and cost required to hire an interior designer by the hour. In addition, having to meet with an interior designer in person requires scheduling multiple sessions for the duration of the interior design project. Here's how the process works:

Choose Your Room

Tell us more about the room you'd like to make over by answering a short and easy online interior design questionnaire to give us more information about your design inspiration (Pinterest boards, pictures of rooms you've seen in magazine or on interior design websites, or even just places or things), your interior design budget and what you'd like to see in your final room from a functional perspective. This is also a great time to tell us what you like or don't like, design-wise. Not sure of what your interior design style is? Don't worry, we can quickly help you figure that out.

Choose Your Designer - Or Let Us Match You

We have over 400 interior designers on your platform, across every different interior design style. If you've seen a portfolio of one of our online interior designers that has caught your eye, let us know and we'll do our best to pair you with that designer. Or, let us match you with a designer for your online interior design project based on your style and budget.

Choose A Concept

Your online interior designer will design two different concepts specifically for your space, based on your style and input. Once you have those online interior design concepts, pick the one you like more, or pick the elements you like best from each of them for your designer to combine into a final design concept. If you're getting a 3D add-on for your project, once you approve the final design concept your project will be rendered and you'll have your 3D renderings in just a few days later - it's like a photoshoot of your new room before you shop!

Shop For Your New Room With Ease

Your final design concept for your online interior design project will come with a shopping list of all the items included in the design. Shop for any of the items you'd like to purchase, from over 250 brands, in a single cart and checkout. Our Concierge team is here to help you get the best deal on items from your online interior design project. Once you've shopped, all you need to do is put the room together based on the detailed layout and directions your interior designer will provide and your new room will be complete.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

How long does the typical project take?
We can work with any timeline, whether you need a new room ASAP or need more time. It takes about 2-3 weeks to complete the process which includes two initial design concepts, messaging time with your designer, and your final design, furniture layout, and shopping list. Celebrity designers typically take between 1-2 months from start to finish due to their schedules.
Do I get matched with a designer or do I pick one?
You’re welcome to pick a designer you’d like to work with by browsing our designers. You can select the designer of your choice and get started directly from their profile page. If you’re not sure which designer fits your style and budget we’re happy to match you.
Can I talk to my designer during the design process?
Yes! You'll communicate with your interior designer during the design process through the messaging feature in your project dashboard. For Celebrity packages, you'll be messaging with your personal design assistant and receive a 30 minute phone call.
Can designers work with my existing furniture?
Absolutely, in fact, we ask if you have furniture you would like to keep in your project details. Please be sure to share photos of the existing furniture you would like to keep.
Will designers stay within my budget?
Yes, our designers keep your budget in mind when selecting furniture.
Where do you source products from?
We work with hundreds of retailers and vendors, many of which are already your favorites and some that are your designer’s “secret sources”. Please let your designer know what stores you like best and they'll do their best to accommodate specific requests.
