Interior Design Services.....................

Interior Design Services can address issues both functional and aesthetic ranging from basic spatial planning and Building Code Studies to detailed fitment design, finishes selection, and furniture design for custom interiors. Beyond strictly physical design, interior design can also address the "soft" considerations contributing to an optimal interior environment, including lighting qualities and air quality control.  Low VOC finishes, anti-microbial materials, solvent-free curing agents, and even HVAC ducting types all contribute to healthy indoor environments, important given the emerging awareness of environmental allergies.
