Effective 7-Step Design Process – From Start to Finish

At Booher, we want to make each phase of the design process as simple as possible for you, while also keeping in mind all the necessary details involved in a customized renovation project. Our design process begins with an initial consultation and ends with the modern, updated addition or contemporary renovation you will enjoy for years to come.

Initial Consultation

Upon request, we will schedule a design consultation, during which we can assess your needs and discuss kitchen or bathroom designs as well as the benefits you hope to obtain from remodeling. More importantly, our team will review your budget and give you a ballpark estimate based on our past projects. This initial meeting should help you know if we are a good fit for your customized renovation.

Feasibility Analysis (Optional)

For a flat fee, you may elect to have us perform a feasibility study to get a more detailed analysis of the budget and better define the scope of your project. Once complete, the written Project Overview and the associated budget range will be reviewed at a follow-up meeting in our office to establish a realistic budget with which you are comfortable.

Preliminary Design

After approval of the Booher Design Agreement and receipt of your design retainer, we’ll work together as a team to define the broad conceptual ideas of the project in three ways:

  • A “Scope of Work” will be developed, which will describe all of your wants, wishes, and goals in a written format.
  • From this document, the “Preliminary Floor Plan” drawings will be developed to portray your list of objectives in a visual format.
  • A revised budget analysis, to narrow the estimated cost to within an accuracy of plus or minus 10% of the final cost, will be conducted based on the Scope of Work and Preliminary Floor Plans.

Design Development

Using the latest computer design technology, we will model your bathroom or kitchen remodeling ideas in full detail to better understand what is to be changed or added during the project. Styles, materials, finishes and products are chosen as we finalize the aesthetic elements of your new space, which will help the actual construction run smoother, faster, and remain near the estimated expense.

Construction Documents

Our last step in design will be to finalize any structural and detail drawings for the project, such as foundation plans (if needed), engineering and framing details, molding and trim details, and electrical and lighting plans. The project budget will be set to a fixed amount based on the final engineering and construction details.


At this point we will give you a window of time within which we anticipate starting your home remodeling project, as well as an approximate duration for the construction. Additionally, we begin all the “behind the scenes” work: placing orders for any products with lead times, developing material lists, pulling applicable permits, and developing the production schedule from which we’ll be working. Throughout this step, we will stay in touch and keep you informed as we get closer to the big day.


We’ll review the project details one more time and address any concerns you may have and discuss special considerations we need to be aware of while working in your home. Once construction is underway, we will remain committed to it until it’s done, respecting your home, keeping it clean and safe, and leaving you with a beautiful finished project.
