frequently asked questions

  • ARIM offers Set Design Fees based on the scope of work for your project.

    ARIM’s expertise and value is not only shown in inspirational and functional designs, but also in the ability to flawlessly manage who, how, and when to deal with suppliers, trades, and clients.

  • Custom New Build projects begin with a 'meet and greet' in our Studio.

    Renovation Projects begin with an in-home Initial Design Consultation.

    Contact ARIM to discuss your project details, budget, and timeline.

    What you can expect from the Meet and Greet: Review of current architectural plans and development of the scope of work, your budget and project timeline as a whole. Our process is reviewed and expectations are set.

    What you can expect from the Initial Design Consultation working session: ARIM will review your “wish list” and existing floor plans, advise on changes if warranted, discuss colour of hard finishes and paint selection/placement, advise on type/layout of furniture you may need to purchase, window coverings, artwork, lighting, etc., help you determine/create a comfortable budget for hard and soft finishes, answer any additional on-site design questions that you may have, and discuss policies and procedures if you chose to move the project forward with ARIM. If you choose to move forward on your own, no further commitment is required.
    Cost: $495

    If you plan to move the project forward with ARIM services after the Initial Design Consultation, ARIM will create a Design Fee Proposal (projection of Design Hours required to complete the scope of work), Contract and Receipt of Retainer. Once this paperwork has been approved by the client, your project is officially launched!
