Online Design FAQ

1. How long will it take to get my room results?

You will receive your presentation package for the particular service's method of delivery (see below) approximately within (2-4) weeks from our receipt of all needed items (questionnaire, payment, room sizes, photos,). 

  1. Signature Style Guide, Inspiration Board, Space Planning & Renderings:  PDF downloadable and printable file sent via e-mail
  2. Consultation & Consultation Plus +: Webpage Link

2. How can we re-design your property without seeing it or meeting you personally?

The advances of technology over the last decade have made things very possible for interior designers to work with clients over the internet.  Times are changing and so is the way interior design is performed.  To allow Stellar ID to accurately understand your budget, space, needs and the look you want to achieve, we will ask that you to complete a client questionnaire, provide us a rough sketch of the room measurements and photos.  We welcome inspiration photos you’ve found online as well.  The more info you send the better we get to know you and your style preferences.

3. Can some of my existing furniture pieces be incorporated in the design plan?

Absolutely! Our earnest desire to incorporate your own purchases and special finds.  It is a hallmark of the approach to providing personalized and affordable interior makeovers.

4. If I have an open floor plan and two rooms are combined, which room do I select first?

In this case, we strongly suggest you purchase a design plan for both spaces.  Spaces which open into one another tend to feel like a single space, and it’s not possible to truly transform the look without taking into consideration everything your eye sees in its single view.

5. Do you work within the budget given to spend on the plan you’ve designed?

Absolutely! We can work within just about any budget. That said, our ability to create a dramatic transformation will be determined by what you’ve set aside for the project.  Of course, if you want items from designer vendors only, expect to spend a little more, and alternatively, if you want items from retail vendors only, expect to spend a little less. 

6. Will I be able to purchase the items directly?

See Below.

  1. Signature Style Guide: YES - Includes Online Store URL Links
  2. Consultation and Consultation Plus+: YES - Includes Online Store URL Links
  3. Inspiration Board: NO - Only includes ideas of objects we believe would fit for that particular room
  4. 2D Space Planning: NO - Results reflect objects already existing, and results are delivered via PDF file not web link.
  5. 3D Computer Renderings: NO - Results reflect objects already existing, and results are delivered via PDF file not web link.

7. Will you make changes to my plan if I don’t like something you’ve selected?

If we’ve missed the mark on an item or two, you may send us your thoughts and we will provide up to three re-selections at no charge per design plan.

8. Once I have my plan, how am I able to ask follow-up questions?

After the receipt of your final E-Design Presentation Package and included re-selection (limit three items per plan), our obligations to one another for that phase of your project are fulfilled.  However, if you do have additional questions, one of our interior designers on staff is able to consult with you via email regarding your new design plan.

9. What happens if I wait to purchase an item, and then it’s no longer available?

If something becomes discontinued you can always shop for a similar item but we recommend that before purchasing our service, you wait until you are financially and practically ready to implement a design change. The world of manufactured goods is a rapidly changing one, and there are no guarantees that the item specified today will be available six months from now.

10. Can I purchase a “E-Design Room Package” as a gift?

Definitely!  Our E-design room packages are fabulous housewarming, newlywed gifts, and much more.  If you intend to purchase this as a gift, simply purchase your selected service without (or with, if you want to surprise them) filling out the design questionnaire, so we can contact them directly.  Please be sure to specify their details at checkout.

11. What locations do you offer E-Design services to?

Our online E-Design services are offered throughout the US and Canada.  At this time we do not offer online services elsewhere.
