WHAT IS E-DESIGN OR VIRTUAL INTERIOR DESIGN SERVICES?
Instead of hiring a traditional interior designer who you can interact with in-person, e-designers are completely remote and you interact with them by email or phone. E-designers do everything traditional interior designers do, except take measurements of your space, and coordinate with contractors, since they are not physically at your property.
E-design is best suited for those who are willing to take measurements and hire contractors themselves. This makes e-design services less expensive than traditional interior design services. KFN Interiors, however, can advise clients on how to deal with contractors in difficult situations. We will also guide you throughout the entire purchasing, arranging, and installation process in case items go out of stock or delayed.
If you answer 'yes' to any or all of the following questions, then e-design or virtual interior design services is right for you.
Do you want to spend less on interior design services?
Are you a DIY person who enjoys doing some of the work involved in the process?
Do you prefer to communicate with your designer virtually?
Do you want the freedom of choosing your own contractors?
If e-design is for you, KFN Interiors will guide you through every step of the way!
WHAT IS THE IDEATION AND DESIGN PROCESS LIKE AT KFN INTERIORS?

We have designed spaces with a variety of styles, including Rustic, Transitional, Classic/Traditional, Minimalist, Eclectic, Mid-Century Modern, and Chic. Even if you like a combination of styles, we can design it!

CAN YOU WORK WITH ANY BUDGET?
Absolutely! We have designed rooms ranging from as low as $300 (for decorative items only), to as high as $20,000. We take pride in designing spaces on low budgets because we believe there are so many creative ways to save money and get the best bang for your buck. But that does not mean we will sacrifice quality. If your budget seems too low for what you want to accomplish (even with money saving ideas in place), we will tell you upfront what we would recommend, whether it’s to increase your budget or omit certain items.
CAN YOU WORK WITH CUSTOMERS OUTSIDE OF THE U.S.?
For the most part, yes. Please reach out to us and we can determine whether it is feasible. We have successfully worked with clients in the Philippines and Australia by using retailers with an online market. If your country does not have enough retailers online, we will not be able to source items in your country since my service relies on online inventory. BUT if you are just looking to get a vision for your space and are willing to shop for similar items on your own, we would recommend the DIY Styling package. If, after that, you would like to have a design guide for how to choose the right sized items and colors/materials, as well as wall paint, please reach out to me and we can give you a special price depending on your needs!
WHAT IF I HAVE ANY QUESTIONS ALONG THE WAY?
We are just one phone call or email away! We respond to questions or concerns within 24 hours, but most likely, sooner! If you are in the purchasing process, we will work closely with you to ensure your project runs smoothly.
