Let’s get started

So are you ready to take the first step?


The more we know about your wants and needs, type of materials and budget, the better we can tailor the design for you.


Design - Proposal - Budget 

The remodeling process can be a little confusing still our clients enjoy peace of mind as we are involved every step of the way, from the design phase until project completion: our quotes are clear and comprehensive and we control the quality and the time management.


For your information, below are the steps you can expect to take in our typical remodeling project:


1 – Your first consultation:  Initial Meeting & Discussion

The first meeting is basically an introduction between you, the client & DekoFino Owner. The meeting will cover the scope of work which you are looking to complete in your home. This includes all types of work and trades which need to be involved in your particular renovation project and determine the viability of your budgetary expectations.

We will go over three crucial points:



Wants & Needs:

You will first share either the issues you dislike about your space or a vision of your dream space, the “things” that are not functional, those you wish you had, and those you would not want to give up.

Tear out some magazines pictures, visit those new sites giving inspirational ideas, a favorite color sample… anything you desire; this is how we will start identifying and analyzing your needs, goals and your design preferences in regards to fixtures, color palettes, interior finishes, and building materials.

Assessing the existing environment:

We will take measurements and investigate the job site conditions.


The cost of remodeling a kitchen or bathroom, creating an outdoor escape often causes anxiety. A remodel is a complex project involving an extensive list of variables therefore no one can produce an accurate estimate without seeing the actual project site and looking at your wish list. Truthfully sharing your budget during this first meeting is the best way to get started. Prices tremendously vary depending the scope of the work, the amenities, authentic materials or imported look-alikes, appliances, brand names or private designer labels, plumbing fixtures, electrical, etc..

Knowing the budget up in front will set a realistic guideline: it is the key factor in evaluating the project feasibility and assessing the resources and limitations. More importantly, the budget will not only determine the selection, it might either allow more amenities or require us to be more creative in finding other alternatives as we will work to your budget. Schedule your first consultation.


Our Remodeling & Renovations Process: PEACE OF MIND


1 - If in range, we will set up an appointment to come back with a created design, brochures, samples and a proposal based on the scope of work.

2 - Upon receipt of initial signed proposal: Pre-contract

We will discuss the project in details: examine any new design and layout changes, including perspectives and floor plan, re-check of measurements, discuss any special needs or concerns, verify all material selections and styles, plans for recommended cabinet work, interior built-ins and other interior decorative details etc., discuss time frames and expectations, review the project estimate for all work.

3 - Contract – Agreement:

The Final contract is issued: the complete specifications are written out including: start and completion date, materials to be used, selections made, the specific items you might want to purchase on your own, lead time for some necessary special orders, with total amount and progress payment schedules, everything will be clearly mentioned.

Upon acceptance and signature of the contract, a necessary deposit - credited towards the total cost of the contract - is requested in order to begin the work.

4 - Start of Work: “One project at a time”; we commit to work in your home every single day so get ready to see the transformation!
