The ALT Design Process is comprised of 4 simple phases as shown below:
PHASE 1 - Contact & Consult
PHASE 2 - Sourcing
PHASE 3 - Ordering
PHASE 4 - Delivery & Installation
We encourage our clients to collect images from magazines, Pinterest and any social media accounts. This will help us to uncover your design style and direction during our initial meeting.
We also reccomend that our clients understand their project budget prior to the initial meeting. This will help both parties determine what can be designed within the project scope.
As a result of obtaining trade program affiliations, our clients always receive a portion of our discounts. As further incentive, ALT offers a portion of our trade discount onto our clients.
For instance, should our suppliers provide 20% discount for trades, we retain 10% and offer the remaining 10% to our client. Worthy of note, our wholesalers offer between 10% to 30% in trade discounts.
We are open from 9 a.m. – 4 p.m Monday to Friday. We do not work weekends or holidays.
Due to COVID-19, no one except the staging team can be present during the staging or destaging process. The Client and homeowners agree NOT to be present while members of the staging team are within the home.
Also added safety is provided by our PPE Supplier to ensure all staff wear masks, sanitize as well as clean all rental items prior to each staging installation.
