Interior Design

Interior Design

Creating a Master plan for an entire home or undertaking a single room, the process is the same. Listening to the client and how they LIVE in their spaces. Eminent will create room layouts, present furnishings, fabric selections and paint colors to the finishing touches of art and accessories. We want our clients to sigh with joy and feel completely at home the moment they walk into their new designed space.

Kitchen Design

Kitchen Design

When a homeowner is ready to undertake a Kitchen; it is something they have been thinking about for a long time. We take into account the desire for an updated space but realize that it must; foremost – function. The overall layout of the space is crucial and it’s where we begin but our plans will extend to where you place your serving pieces and stock pots. Eminent appreciates the collaboration with the contractor and cabinetmaker, making the project enjoyable for the homeowner. Once the layout is determined, we can begin to add the “fun” and decorative elements into the design. Eminent will listen to your wishes and needs for your Kitchen and will present inspired finishes that speak to the aesthetics you envisioned.

Bathroom Design

Bathroom Design

Visions of tile and toilets are not necessarily what clients dream of when considering an update to a bathroom. Along with Kitchens, they are one of the best investments you can make to add value to your home. Eminent will creatively procure concepts, sort out layout issues and handle spatial concerns by providing a plan that functions and elevations to help you visualize the end result. We aid you in selections from tile down to the toilet to complete a retreat within your own home.

Construction Planning

Construction Planning

We ask questions and listen to not only what client say they want, but also to what they don’t verbalize. It is often difficult for homeowners to explain exactly WHAT they are after for their home. Through an in-depth process we are able to understand the ultimate goals and vision the clients have. We fluidly collaborate with architects and contractors to create a home or space that exceeds the client’s dreams. During the building process, Eminent works closely with the contractor and subs to provide timely answers to the inevitable questions that arise. Communication with all involved is imperative so that deadlines and expectations are met. Eminent Interior Design will perform as your best advocate throughout your project.
