Initial Consultation

Welcome to Yvonne Whelan Design and thanks for your interest in our Design Services.

The Initial Consultation Package Is for those looking to establish, plan and develop a concept for their home.

The Design Consultation is the first step for every new project.

During this meeting we will discuss the scope of your project, your goals and budget.

We will also discuss your tastes and lifestyle. We suggest you plan for 2 -3 hours of time for this meeting.

To make the best use of the allotted time we suggest you fill out our questionnaire beforehand as it will help you be prepared to answer our questions and come up with questions of your own.

This consultation will give you the positive boost to get your project started in the right direction.

We will provide a wrap up report of the meeting in the days to follow.

If you’d like to book a consultation, please send us an email or give us a call to schedule.
