Our fees and rates

“Professionally decorated rooms  look expensive and many “are” expensive!  Yet others “only look” expensive and are really quite inexpensive in comparison to the beautiful design created by our staff. We, at Divine Creations, LLC, are sensitive to our client”s budgets.  We promise to keep you informed of unexpected costs during the design process for your continued approval!

Whether you want the finest original or the closest “look alike”, we are happy to accommodate!

We don’t like surprises and I am pretty sure you probably do not either!  We want you to be “excited” about your new design and especially thrilled with our design and staff!  We give 100% of ourselves to every project that we are designing for our clients, large or small!”

Designers can save their clients money

Because we have access to wholesale showrooms and purchasing, we are able to purchase fabrics, flooring, furniture and interior accessories at rates much lower than retail.  We are happy to charge an agreed upon percentage above wholesale cost on any furnishings ordered through our design firm.

Get it right the first time!

How many times have you thought that a selected paint color is precisely the one you wanted, only to find that once you’ve painted your room, it is not at all what you want?  Or,  bought  a piece of furniture that is “way to large or small” for the surrounding furnishings? A professional pays attention to scale not just the length and width of a piece.   And if you’ve purchased an item on sale, there may be no taking it back!  Using the services of an experienced professional saves –you time, frustration, and money.

We look forward to helping you make your home “all that you dreamed it would be! 🙂
