Appointments are in 2-3 hour increments and are available Monday-Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
Your total appointment hours will vary depending on the agreed upon amount provided by your builder, contractor or designer.
Please begin thinking of several ideal appointment times that you are available.
Also, please be sure to have child care during your available appointment times. Your time is limited with the designer so providing your full attention will result in you receiving all the information on making the best decisions for your home.
Make a Wish List – To prepare for your appointment, make a wish list of the items that you know are “must haves” for your new home. Examples: Tankless Water Heater, Whole House Water Filtration System, Tile Wood Floors, etc. This will help the designer from the beginning to understand what is important to you, so you can focus on making decisions.
Create an Online File or Bring Pictures – We also encourage creating a file online or bring pictures of styles you have seen and would like for your home. Though we may not have the exact items, we will work together to replicate the look.
After your first appointment, you will be given your own personal log in for our website. We will upload all pictures and paperwork to your site so you can view them after appointments and at any time during the build of your home.
Builders provide a wide variety of options for your home. Sometimes it is difficult for us to have exact pricing at the time of inquiry. Your designer may need to submit a price request to your builder. All price requests should be back by your next appointment if not emailed to you beforehand. This is the common rule of thumb but please know there are always exceptions.
Please know your builders deposit policy on upgrades. Depending on your builder this may be due upon your final appointment. We accept check or money order.
Your builder has provided you with a substantial amount of time at Paragon with your designer. If you require more time with the designer to finalize your selections to start your home, Paragon will charge an hourly fee for the extra time.
*This is separate from our interior design service fees. Please inquire if interested.
