David Kaplan Interior Design, LLC
About this pro
I have many years of experience including 20 years in my own firm while remaining highly competitive in my rates. I have successfully completed many design projects with varied budgets and I have had several repeat clients. I have a good knowledge of both to-the-trade and retail resources but I am also very resourceful when it comes to seeking out special products. I am very accessible to my clients and communicate especially well with contractors and vendors. My designs express a high end style yet are very user-friendly. They are subtly innovative while avoiding trendiness and therefore stay current for many years. I am very fortunate to be in a profession where I can explore and continually challenge my creativity and work with other created-minded people on a daily basis. I get satisfaction by improving my clients' living and working environments and help them realize their dreams. I can apply so many other apects of my life experience to my work and I am always bringing new ideas to the table. Everything I have learned and am currently learning has relevance. Even in my "down" time I am excited to form ideas for my design projects.

Q & A
- What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?Review the designer's portfolio and level of experience. Does your personal style preference mesh with the designer's? A mutual connection and ease of communication is of utmost importance. Even if for a short time, you will be forming a close relationship with the designer. Clarify your goals and approximate budget, and express any questions or concerns about the design process. Do not enter into a designer-client relationship without a clear and concise contract defining scope of work, designer's compensation, third party services and all terms up front. You may need the designer to become your advocate in case a product or service is delayed or does not meet reasonable expectation.
