Our Process

Your Style, Your Dream, Your Home

Design Connection, Inc. has been designing beautiful interiors for 30 years. Our success, in part, comes from working closely with our clients to understand their individual style, family and lifestyle before beginning work. Once we’ve done that, we
have the pleasure of creating luxurious and functional spaces tailored specifically for them. Part of the fun is bringing new ideas to our clients that are above and beyond what they imagined.

Through our years in the business, we have found that our simple three-step process works best. At the end of this process, our clients trust our team to take care of every detail, while they maintain approvals on overall budget and style. A collaborative approach is one that works best for everyone.

How Do We Begin?

Before beginning work on any project, we sit down with a potential client for a complimentary in-studio consultation. During this “getting to know you” meeting, we talk over your style and lifestyle, and look at pictures and past projects. We decide together if we are a good fit for each other. If we are, we get started. That’s when the fun begins! Here’s how it works…

Phase One

The DC team visits your home to measure and photograph your space, then develops AutoCAD and 3D drawings of your home’s spaces and elevations. Based on your project’s scope, we create the perfect concept for your design and/or remodeling

This phase culminates with a full presentation in our design studio, complete with samples and finishes to touch and feel. In this session, you’ll begin to experience the vision for your home’s transformation. We’ll provide you with a timeline and budget for your interior design project, from start to finish. With all of this agreed upon by you, you can sit back and enjoy the process.

Phase Two

Your dreams begin to take shape! Once you’ve approved the design, timeline, and budget, we’re ready to begin your project. Throughout the work, we are consistently there for you, visiting your home, providing daily updates on the schedule, and ensuring deliveries and installations happen smoothly. At the completion of your project a punch list is created, because of daily contact with you throughout the process, it is taken care of easily. Our projects deliver on time and on budget. And then…

Phase Three

The Big Reveal: Welcome to Your Dream Home!

This is the life-changing phase. It’s the moment you’ve waited for – and Arlene’s favorite part of every project! After construction is complete and your space is pristine, the DC team delivers and installs your new furniture, accessories, rugs, drapery and every small, important detail. It’s perfect – your dream just came true.

Let us help create your dream home. Call us at (913) 851-8776 to get started.




The entire process was simple for us

Arlene did an excellent job of talking through our potential options and spent a lot of time listening to our likes, and what we wanted as the end result. The entire project finished on time and on budget. Thanks, Arlene and the team!
