What types of customers have you worked with?
At Full Circle Interior Solutions we enjoy working with both residential and commercial customers. In the residential realm we truly enjoy working in children and adolescent rooms, where we can have fun with colors and themes.
In the commercial realm we really look forward to helping out small businesses that need to be pushed to the next level.
Whether it is a residential or commercial space our goal is to deliver an amazing space that is inviting and memorable, while at the same time is more energy and space efficient, and reduces energy costs.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
There is a common misconception about what interior designers do. Often times people think that an interior designer is there to make the place look beautiful by choosing colors, furnishings, accessories, etc.
Even though this is in fact part of what an Interior Designer does, it is but one of the last phases of the process. We like to think of it as the "icing" on the cake. Without a good cake though, that stands up well, has all the layers properly aligned, etc., pretty icing on the top is just not sufficient. We first have to work on making sure "the cake", or the foundation of the design, can stand up well and is truly functional, before proceeding to add our last and final decorative layer.
As interior designers we pride ourselves in having a whole building approach. We take a look at the history of the space/building, the architecture that is already existing, etc., and from that we formulate a plan that takes advantage and enhances what is already there.
As interior designers, it is very important to be able to listen to our clients and see what it is they hired us to do. At FCIS we believe strongly in giving the client what they want. Not what suits our ego, our desires, etc., but what the client needs, wants and is able to afford.
Lastly, as part of our commitment to the environment, we want to make sure that in addition to your space being functional, beautiful, unique, creative, etc., it is also sustainable, and that we are making responsible choices that are going to have a positive impact on the environment.
So, in short one thing that sets our profession and our company is our motto. . .
Function...Form...Sustainability...Connecting the Dots.
We'd like to help you connect your dots!
