Our design center is 100% owned by Irvine Pacific, L.P., which is division of The Irvine Company. Our design center is exclusively available to the buyers of Irvine Pacific’s communities.
Absolutely nothing! Whether you complete your selections in one (1) appointment or eight (8) appointments, your professional design fee is the same…$0. This can save you thousands of dollars and offers you tremendous value.
Additionally our designers have in excess of one hundred (100) years of professional interior design experience. Our designers will help you bring your design vision to life. Together we will make your home special, unique and an inviting place to relax, unwind and/or entertain.
Buyers often make this assumption before they walk in the door. Irvine Pacific prides itself on having the best business practices, bidding processes and trades. We employ a rigorous bidding process using trades with long standing reputations of excellence. Our bid process also ensures that we receive very competitive bids/pricing and we extend this benefit to you.
Buyers that actually competitively bid our prices, using the same quality materials and scope of work, validate how competitive we are.
Here is the beauty… we have buyers completing all steps in one (1) appointment to as many as eight (8) appointments. The average total number of appointments is between five (5) and six (6). We adjust our approach and style that makes most sense for you!
When it comes to design, everyone is individual and unique. Some buyers have clarity with their choices, scheme direction and make decisions quickly while others need more time.There is no right or wrong...just different.
Our homes are built to a certain progression and have critical deadlines throughout the construction process to ensure they are completed timely. These deadlines are referred to as stage cut-off dates.
Your designers will work very closely with you to schedule appointments that respect these decision deadlines and will continue to communicate these key dates. Together we will help you make your decisions on or before these stage cut-off dates.
We encourage you to explore our upgrade offerings in our Studio Chateau interior design software. When you purchased your home, sales provided you both a username and password.
Open our software and start exploring and creating wish lists. Buyers that create wish lists are more informed, prepared and engaged. Should you decide you don’t want an item or items, not to worry. Wishlists do not produce orders.
We also greatly encourage you to visit Houzz.com and other interior design internet sites for inspiration ideas and direction. Interior/trade magazines are another great resource for inspirations. Bring imagery/photos to your appointments. Asd they say “a picture is worth a thousand words.” If that is too daunting do not worry; we will help guide you.
There are certain complex categories of optional upgrades where providing online pricing is simply not possible.Some options simply have too many variables to price. Examples of these complex categories include, but are not limited to, countertops, flooring and window coverings.
By example with flooring alone, there are hundreds of flooring materials that can be applied to each room in a plan. Since every plan contains many rooms you can see the thousands of possibilities. Our designers will carefully guide and inform you through these categories..
