The DreamMaker Process

The DreamMaker Process

With a dedication to superior craftsmanship and ethical excellence, our specialists are committed to delivering a design that meets your specific needs, while communicating consistently throughout the entire process. You can feel secure that your project will be completed in the most efficient manner possible with minimal disruption to your life.

The DreamMaker Newington Design Center is where you can view, touch and compare the items that will be used in your bathroom renovation or kitchen remodel. DreamMaker Newington is committed to ensuring that our clients explore all the available bathroom and kitchen remodeling options open to them, so come explore with DreamMaker!

Visiting the DreamMaker Design Center encourages you to:

  • Explore the many options available to you by walking through our Design Center (Start dreaming!)
  • Meet the people who would be working on your project
  • Get a better feel for how the entire remodeling or redesign process works for your bathroom or kitchen
  • Get to know the DreamMaker staff and build a solid working relationship built on trust that will result in your redesign project being everything you've dreamed!

A DreamMaker designer will visit your home to complete a home survey which includes, measurements, photos, and looking for any plumbing, electrical or structural issues that could affect the project.

The more information your DreamMaker designer has, the more detailed and precise your initial estimate is going to be.

Based on our prior discussions, we will show you design ideas along with a corresponding budget range that will incorporate your project-objectives.

Hopefully, we have hit the mark and you are ready to formally start the detailed design process. If not, necessary changes to scope of work or budget can be established before moving on. To move forward, a design retainer is required. As we make this commitment, the defined scope of work with corresponding budget range ensures we all have the same expectations (hence, no surprises!)

Our designer will guide you through the design and selection process, hashing through all of your ideas, to bring your vision to life. At this point we solidify the design all the way down to the sheen of the paint. Most of the time, this is done within our showroom.

Good communication! The contract is an integral part of communication providing clear understanding for you and for us of the expectations of the project. This will include start date, payment schedule, expected number of days needed to complete your project, and any necessary drawings and documents.

We will schedule a Pre-Production Walk Through where you will be introduced to our Production Manager and the Lead-Carpenter responsible for work in your home. Your Lead Carpenter will be your main contact throughout the entire process; communicating daily work schedules and ensuring that the final product is all you envisioned it to be.
