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.

As soon as possible! If you are thinking about involving our interior design team in your Toronto project, it's best to involve us from the very start. This way, we can help connect you with our professional team of collaborators (builders, architects, tradesmen etc) to start your project off in the most effective and efficient way possible. We’re also full of design knowledge and ideas that you may have never considered. So if we’re brought into the process too late, it can be difficult and costly to go backwards or make changes once your project has started.
We've serviced clients across Canada, including Toronto and Montreal, as well as in the USA and Europe. We will go anywhere you want us to! If there happens to be palm trees there, even better! We are Ottawa-based, but with the help of technology and great communication skills, we're able to work from a distance. As part of our process, we travel to the project site at select project milestones, as well as for the furniture installation day.
Full-service projects typically have a minimum duration of 1 year from start to completion. New build projects can be up to 3 years from start to completion.
We love incorporating our client’s existing pieces and heirlooms as they bring personality, soul, and emotion to a space. We will, however, be honest about whether or not the piece will pose limitations on the design, or simply won’t work.
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 team is highly collaborative, and each of our talented designers is involved in the success of every project. Our team is composed of senior designers who each have 10+ years of experience in the industry, and are supported by intermediate and junior designers. At the onset of the project, you will meet with our Design Manager and one of our senior designers, whom you will also be communicating with for the duration of the project.
Our design team collaborates with multiple skilled craftsmen, contractors, and tradespeople to produce the custom designs we create for our clients. Design projects involve lots of design management and facilitation, which is a part of the value of working with our talented team.
We encourage clients to find alternate accommodations during the implementation phase as renovations are very disruptive to everyday life, especially for a family. During the discovery phase of the project, we can provide an estimated length of time you would be away from the project site so that this can be worked into your total investment value and so that you can start planning. In our experience, living within renovations is not much fun for anyone involved in the project!
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.
