Frequently Asked Questions

DISCOVER MORE ABOUT our approach and services.

What services do you offer?

We offer a full range of services, from decoration consultation to turnkey projects for complete renovations in Montreal, Paris and the French Riviera.

What is the difference between an interior designer and a decorator?

The interior designer is trained over several years, we are experts in spatial planning, combining functionality and aesthetics. We consider elements such as circulation and natural light to create tailor-made solutions. We are specialized for large-scale projects such as complete house renovations or the fitting out of professional offices.

The decorator has not studied, he is specialized in the aesthetic arrangement of spaces, they bring an artistic touch to create harmonious atmospheres. Although they have some design knowledge, their expertise does not cover the technical aspects of interior design.

At Imagine, we combine these two expertises to offer a comprehensive approach. However, our specialty lies more in overall interior design rather than decoration alone.

How does the decoration consultation work?

The decorating consultation is a session where we discuss your needs, assess the space and provide decorating advice and recommendations. A detailed report is sent after the session.

For decorating consultations, we operate on an hourly rate basis.

What do you mean by “turnkey” service?

Our “turnkey” service means that we take charge of the entire project, from design to completion. This includes planning, concept, production of construction plans, support during the work and delivery of the finished project.

For turnkey projects, we offer a flat rate that covers everything from taking measurements to producing construction plans. This package covers the entire process, giving you total transparency on fees from the start of the project.

What is your policy regarding designer discounts?

Thanks to our privileged partnerships with suppliers, we obtain exclusive discounts which we pass on to our customers directly when ordering. This approach ensures complete transparency and clearly distinguishes our fees from the benefits of designer discounts.

Do you have general contractors on your team?

We are interior design experts, Imagine does not include in-house contractors. We do not play the role of general contractor and do not directly supervise their work on renovation or space transformation projects.

However, we will be happy to provide you with reliable references.

This approach gives you the flexibility to research and select the contractor that best fits your project, while taking into account your budget and time constraints. We are committed to supporting you in carrying out your interior design projects to guarantee a harmonious and quality experience."

How long does a complete renovation project typically take?

The duration depends on the size and complexity of the project.

We need a minimum of 12 weeks of work from the survey to the production of construction plans for a house, for example. Construction times can range from 6 to 18 months. An estimated timeline will be provided once we have full project details.

I am planning the expansion of my house, I already have my architectural plans, can you help me with the rest?

Absolutely ! Your architect focused on the building envelope, guaranteeing a solid and functional structure for your extension. As an interior designer specializing in interior design and concepts, we complete this work by focusing on the ergonomics, functionality and comfort of interior spaces. We ensure that each room reflects your tastes while optimizing the use of space.

Your architect's plans will serve as the basis on which we will work to create a harmonious, warm interior adapted to your needs. 

Do you work internationally?

We offer our services mainly in Montreal, Paris, on the French Riviera and its surroundings.

We are also open to carrying out remote projects. To do this, we will need detailed photographs of the space in question, as well as precise plans and measurements. Communication for these projects can be done by email, telephone or videoconference. Following our discussions, we will provide you with a complete design file in PDF format.

What about the exterior?

At Imagine, we extend our design expertise beyond interiors.

We offer an exterior design service covering space planning, choice of materials, innovative lighting concepts, as well as the selection of furniture and accessories.

Although we do not take care of the choice of plants, our approach guarantees a harmonious, functional exterior and balanced with your interior.

Do you accept projects of all sizes?

Yes, whether you need a simple decorating consultation or a complete renovation, we are here to help.
