How we work

Initial Consultation

The initial consultation is free. We will come to your home, discuss your project, budget, timeline and design objectives.

Designer Retainer Fee

After the initial consultation, we collect a deposit of $1,000 towards the design fee. At this point we measure your space, photograph the existing conditions, discuss your “wish list” for the space, and proceed with the schematic design process. During this period we clarify the appliance selection, and design focus.

The average kitchen design fee is $3,000, of which $1,000 will be applied towards your cabinet purchase. The fee may vary depending on the complexity of the project.

Bathroom design fees will range for $1,000 to $2,000 depending on the scope and complexity.

Design Completion

After the schematic design process is completed, we will have a working meeting where we achieve a final design solution for your space. We then proceed to produce computer generated plans and elevations, including modifications to the existing floor plan, cabinet plan layouts, elevations showing cabinets and appliances, and all electrical plans. We will assist in the selection of countertops, hardware, appliances, lighting and floor material.

If an addition to your home is needed, we will work closely with your Architect throughout the planning and detailing phases to insure that the design intents are met.


Figg-Halpin Design will work with you to solicit bids for a general contractor to execute the design. We collaborate closely with your contractor to provide a smooth and efficient process.
