Dallas Interior Design Firms & How We’re Helping Boutique Firms Through COVID-19 Shutdowns

Dallas Interior Design Firms, We’re Here For You Designers

Dear Interior Designers or Stranded Home Remodeling Home Owners: 

There are a lot of great interior designers throughout the United States and globally. We realize how hard it is for you to catch a flight, find childcare for your children, and to make it to your interior design projects on time.

When my Dallas interior design studio receives a call from someone let down my other Dallas Interior Design Firms, I’m saddened. Some designers would be happy to have the business. I am. I’m grateful, especially in the midst of a pandemic. Others are stranded and not able to fulfill business and family obligations.

Many Dallas Interior Design Firms are going out of business. Some are leaving customers hanging. All while customers are hanging in limbo wondering whether or not they will receive their home furnishings or services or if their home remodeling project will be finished. Will their dream bathroom remodel or kitchen remodel be completed this year?

With my years as a trained graphic designer and with over 20 years helping others excel at Target, I am looking forward to using both my design & project management business knowledge to help other designers and interior design firms in America keep moving. Yes, even my competition, even my fellow Dallas Interior Design Firms.

What We Are Doing To Help Other Dallas Interior Design Firms

I am fortunate to have a Senior Interior Designer, Lori Yusten and a remarkable staff who are all working from home at the moment. In the process, we are preparing installations for designers nationally and globally who can’t fly to Dallas. While times are tough for everyone, we see this as.a little way we can help fellow interior designers.

Here’s how we are working during COV-19 and moving forward:

1. Sign an NDA & Non-Compete.

If you’re a homeowner who’s been stranded by a contractor, don’t worry…this Step 1, does not really apply to you.

Together with other national interior design firms, our Dallas Interior Design Firms sign an NDA with other design firms. The NDA is an non-disclosure agreement which ensures we will not speak of this arrangement with the homeowners. Technically we are white labeling ourselves to help fellow designers. The non-compete affiliation clause is added for two purposes.

First so that other design firms understand that we are not trying to steal their clients. As designers we work really hard for clients so taking them from each other is simply not cool.

Secondly, we have an affiliation clause which states if a client asks for more work, we get to fulfill that project too; this is only fair because our project management and seamless installation services are often the reason clients move forward with more work.

After reading this post, other Dallas interior design firms will most likely follow suit, however we are confident that our services excel far above those of others. Our team is large and our contractors are simply the best. Hence the reason, our Dallas Interior Design Firm Dee Frazier Interiors is consistently Voted Best of Houzz for Design & Service.

2. Conduct Skype Meetings With Our Dallas Interior Design Firms.

Via a Skype or Hangouts call, we meet with other design teams to obtain the full scope of their projects and where they are in the process. We determine how to best help them fulfill orders and project manage the entire interior design installation. Some designers have not been able to start on projects they’ve committed to, it’s okay. We’ll work with you to “white label” aka. be your “Dallas Interior Design Firms”. Designers, you are still in the driver’s seat. We are temporarily lending our well bodies and design expertise, if needed to your projects.

Just for the fun of it, here’s a fews photo of our team ‘social distancing’ and working remotely..

3. Fulfill the Interior Design Project Scope.

Without hesitation, we have begun doing everything necessary to help other interior designers get their jobs completed on time. Here’s just a few of the ways we’ve helped other boutique interior design firms:

4. Site Visits & Meetings.

We have made numerous site visits to take measurements and either Messenger, FaceTime or WhatsApp, designers while we’re there.

5. Create White Label Interior Design Plans.

For designers taking care of sick family members or with children at home, we’ve drafted house plans in CAD and other formats with their emailed changes.

6. Home Decor & Window Treatment Installations

From Home Furnishings and accessories to Home Remodeling, we’ve installed custom cabinets and accessories down to the last detail – all via FaceTime or other video conferencing so the designer is involved in the entire process.

7. Home Remodeling Project Management Services.

A couple of interior designers have contractors that are not able to complete a home remodeling project. Our contractors are lending a helping hand.
