To begin step 3 of the Discovery Phase, an initial investment of $650 +HST is collected to ensure both parties are equally committed to the process before investing in further work.
This critical part of the project usually takes about 3-5 months depending on its scope and complexity. During this phase, we make all material and product selections, then produce and present a comprehensive design package. This package outlines all of the visual and technical design details and sets our team up for success once implementation begins.

- Order & Purchasing
This last phase of the design process is where all of our team’s collaborative planning comes together.

Right at the very start! If you are thinking of working with us on your Montreal project, it's best to get our design team involved right off the bat. This way, we can help connect you with the best collaborators (builders, architects, tradesmen etc) to start your project off smoothly. We also have experience-based knowledge and ideas that are best to implement at the start of the process. When these things are considered in hindsight, it can be burdensome and costly to make changes once work has started.
At West of Main, Full-Service Interior Design has an associated design fee, which is a flat fee, tailored specifically to each project. The fee is determined when we develop the scope of work during the Discovery Phase.
Our design team collaborates with multiple skilled craftsmen, contractors, and tradespeople to produce our custom designs. There is a lot of stakeholder management and facilitation involved in interior design projects, which is a benefit of working with our team.
We will go anywhere you want us to! We are Ottawa-based, but technology and great communication skills allow us to work from a distance. We've serviced clients across Canada, including Montreal, and other major Canadian cities, as well as in the United States and Europe. We travel to project sites at specific milestones, as well as for the furniture installation day.
We offer Virtual Hourly Design Consultation through the designated platform The Expert. Through the platform we offer 55-minute video consultations during which you can pick our brain about anything in regards to your project. If you would like more information in regards to this service, please fill out our Design Survey and our team can set up a discovery call to chat about how this service could meet your needs. If you are looking for help finding a few key pieces to refresh your home with furniture and decor, please contact our shoppe’s Furniture & Decor Service team Here.
We love incorporating our clients’ heirlooms and other special pieces into our designs as they bring personality to a space. However, we’ll be honest if the piece may pose limitations on the design, or simply won’t work.
Our team is very collaborative, and each of our talented designers plays an integral role in the success of our projects. Our team includes senior designers who each have 10+ years of experience in the industry, and are supported by intermediate and junior designers. To start your project, you will meet with our Design Manager and one of our senior designers, whom you will communicate with for the duration of the project.
We encourage clients to find alternate lodging for the duration of the implementation phase as renovations are very disruptive to everyday life, especially for a family. During the discovery phase of the project, we can give you an idea of the length of time you would be away from the site so that this can be worked into your total investment value and so that you can begin to plan. Living in a renovation state does no favours to the sanity of everyone involved in the project!
Most likely, yes! This is how West Of Main Shoppe, our furniture store was born, actually. If you see something that catches your eye please send a descriptive email to our team email@example.com, including the image for reference and we'll gladly provide you more details.
