Keeping these factors in mind, I tried out four different services to see how our main space could be laid out.
Havenly starts with a style quiz where you select photos of rooms you like and answer a few personality questions. You can select the level at which you want to be involved in the process, or say screw it and let your designer take the wheels. Then, you’re presented with a few color schemes and mood boards to rate, before you’re asked to upload photos of the room and any relevant inspiration pics. All this information allows Havenly to match you with an in-house designer that best suits your style and needs.
You may be thinking of knocking down an existing house and rebuilding, you may have a sloping or difficult site, you make have acreage that has views, you may have certain restrictions or you may wish to have the greenest home in the region….. your Design Team is not only creative but a problem solver.
Fed up with free tools, I gave paid services a go. I was first introduced to e-interior design startup Havenly a few years ago at SXSW. The service promises to create a mood board, layout, and a shopping list to help make implementing the design easy — all under a flat rate instead of an hourly bill you might get with an in-person designer. (Havenly starts at $19 for a consultation, while the full experience is $169 for a bare room, with help on where to lay out each piece.)
Even before the design process begins, your Design Team can provide insight. This can include site selection and providing you with the feasibility and peace of mind of what you can and can’t do.
They are creative professionals passionate and committed to creating innovative and functional homes.
