  • How can I reach my Designer if I have an urgent question or concern?
    Your Designer is accessible via phone and text for urgent matters. For less immediate questions, emails are also an effective way to communicate.
  • We've decided to redesign additional spaces during our ongoing project, how do we add this to our plan?
    More times than not, our clients find they want to renovate or redesign additional rooms while their original project is underway. We can easily accommodate your growing needs - just let your Bevy partner know your thoughts! Updating your home is an exciting time, and we'll work with you to create an updated timeline & scope based on your new criteria.
  • Will my home be livable during the renovation?
    This depends on the scope of the project. Construction is always disruptive to a home, but with Bevy we work to keep this as minimal as possible. Communication and site management are critical. We will advise you on whether living in your home or temporarily moving out during construction is the right choice for you based on project scale and your family's needs. Check out our Preparing for & Living with Home Renovations Guide for more information and tips on getting through this phase of the project.
  • How do you ensure quality in your projects?
    We partner with trusted contractors and use high-quality materials. Our experienced team oversees every detail to ensure exceptional craftsmanship and durable, beautiful results.

    Project timelines vary based on scope and complexity. During our initial consultation, we’ll provide a detailed timeline and keep you updated on progress to ensure transparency and efficiency.
  • How do you ensure the project stays on budget?
    We meticulously plan and monitor all expenses, providing you with regular financial updates. If any potential cost changes arise, we discuss them with you beforehand to ensure transparency and alignment with your budget.
  • How do you handle unforeseen issues that arise during construction?
    A major component of being a full-service partner is promptly managing any and all issues that arise. Our goal is to resolve these problems efficiently, which involves informing you of any situations and presenting possible solutions in a timely manner.
  • What if I'm not satisfied with part of the work?
    Your satisfaction is our priority. If there’s something you’re not happy with, please let us know immediately. We’ll work to address your concerns and make necessary adjustments to meet your expectations. Home renovation can be a stressful time, and it can be easy to lose sight of the end vision with all the dust, noise, and chaos. Bevy has carefully chosen our construction partners based on years of experience and proven results. While things may seem a bit awry in the thick of it, try to trust in the process and know we are involved with you every step of the way.
  • Are you licensed and insured?

    We begin with a thorough in-person consultation to understand your preferences, lifestyle, and inspirations. Through conversation, mood boards, and visual references, we help you articulate your design style and preferences.

    We consider your personal preferences, the natural light in your space, and the overall mood you want to create. We provide color swatches, samples, and visualizations to help you make confident choices.
  • Can you help me create a cohesive look throughout my home?
    Yes, we specialize in creating cohesive designs that flow seamlessly from room to room. We ensure that all elements work together harmoniously while still allowing for unique touches in each space.
  • How do you incorporate my family’s needs into the design?
    We prioritize functionality as much as aesthetics. By understanding your family’s daily routines, storage needs, and lifestyle, we design spaces that are both beautiful and practical for everyday living.
  • How do I ensure the pieces we select will fit my home?
    We take detailed measurements of your space and use design software to create accurate layouts. This allows us to visualize how each piece will fit and ensure everything works together harmoniously.
  • Can you help me incorporate my existing furniture and decor into the new design?
    Absolutely! We love blending new elements with your cherished pieces. Our designers will work to integrate your existing items in a way that complements and enhances the overall design
  • How do you ensure the design reflects my unique style and needs?
    We focus on personalized service, taking the time to understand your lifestyle, preferences, and needs. Throughout the design process, we ensure that every choice reflects your personality and functional requirements.

    You will receive invoices at the start of each phase of the project and upon completion of key milestones. We provide detailed billing schedules during the initial consultation, so you know what to expect.
  • Can I get a detailed breakdown of costs?
    Absolutely. Each invoice includes a detailed breakdown of labor hours, materials, and other costs. We are always available to answer any questions you have about the billing details.
  • What payment methods can I use?
    Whatever works best for you! Our client portal accepts credit card (3.2% + $.30 fees apply) and ACH (no additional fees). We also accept check, Zelle, and cash payments.
  • Can I split an invoice between multiple forms of payment?
    Want to put part of your payment on a credit card and the other on check (or similar)? Not a problem! Just let the Bevy team know and we'll update your invoice to reflect these payment methods.
  • Will I pay contractors directly?
    Part of Bevy's streamlined services includes reviewing contractor bills for accuracy based on agreed upon scope and work completed. You will never be asked to pay a contractor directly. This applies to deposits, mid-project withdrawals, and final wrap-up payments.
