Working with Vevano: How the Design Process Works
Want to update the interior design of your home but don’t know where to start? You’re not alone—and that’s ok! Home interior design is a specialty trade like many others; it can take years of training to understand and master the process of designing a beautiful and functional space.
But even working on a renovation or remodel with an interior designer can seem daunting at first, especially if you’re unfamiliar with the interior design process. You may wonder who is involved and when, how the planning works, and what interior designers actually do.
We want to demystify the interior design process and show you just how easy it is to work with an interior designer—even when they’re remote! While we can’t speak to every designer’s process, below we break down the tried and true method our Vevano Home designers use to create stunning home results for our clients.
Vevano Home’s Interior Design Process
After you reach out to Vevano Home’s expert design services, you are assigned to a dedicated designer who will help you realize your renovation. Here’s what you can expect:
Your dedicated Vevano Home designer will begin the interior design process with a free, remote consultation. During this consultation, you discuss what you are looking for in a design, the budget you’re working with, and the scope of the renovation or remodel project. This may involve getting rough measurements and pictures of the existing space to know what needs to be done.
From there, the designer will provide a custom retainer fee based on your project, so you only pay for what you need. Bonus: that fee is later deducted from product purchases you make related to your design.
With your vision in mind, the designer starts creating a comprehensive design packet to illustrate your potential remodel. This packet comes with concept boards, 3D renderings, elevations, floor plans, revisions, and samples for your project.
This comprehensive packet is designed to give you everything you need for a successful home renovation or remodel. The concept board highlights images of features, materials, finishes, and colors that inspired your redesign. The 3D renderings and product samples give you an idea of how the redesign will look when completed, while the detailed floor plans help ensure a smooth installation.
When you review these materials with your designer, you can share what you like and dislike, as well as what changes you want to make to the design.
From start to finish, the Vevano Home design process is collaborative. We want to make sure the final design is exactly what you want. Once the design is finalized, your designer works with you to purchase the product you need for your project. Your retainer fee is deducted from the products you purchase through Vevano Home, which essentially makes the design service free!
From there, your designer is available for calls and emails to support you—or your contractor— during the project to ensure your vision and their designs for it can reach completion.

Martha, Vevano’s Head of Product & Design, helped Lindsey and Jonny to transform their kitchen from a clunky, out-of-date kitchen to a beautiful and intuitively designed farmhouse kitchen with added storage. “My favorite part about the kitchen is just how the overall design came together,” said Lindsey.
In another recent project, designer Madi helped create a kitchen basement out of an empty room so Jared could use it as a basement rental unit. It turned out so well that the unit was rented before he could install the backsplash! “The redesign turned out fantastic!” Jared said.
