Custom Design Process
The creation of an original piece of furniture is an intimate and personal experience. We feel it is equally important for you to understand the process.
This is where we meet and discuss some of the things that you have seen in our store and/or online. Or, this may be where you have watched Salvage Dawgs and understand our capabilities and you give us a call or email with the suggestion of what you are looking to custom build. This is where we get to know you.
The nature of the consultation will depend on your location (via email, phone conversation, or in-person, etc.) During this process, we will discuss what is important to you in terms of personal design, finish, and type of room where your authentic custom furniture will be placed. During the consultation, we will also discuss the parameters of your budget. Once we have an understanding of what you are looking for based on the information you provide, we will then present you with an estimated range of price. If this is acceptable, we will discuss any design fees then move on to the next stage.
After the consultation and design fee stages, in order to help with the design direction, we may ask that you send us inspiration pictures of what you are looking for. This will be beneficial. Either way, our In-House Design Team will sketch the design based on the dimensions and style information that is provided. We will then share the sketches with you and talk through the process of tweaking and/or approval of the design. Once the final sketch has been signed off by you, we use this to produce your custom piece.
Once the final sketch has been signed off and approved, within two business days we will provide you with the final price. At this point, we require a 50% deposit. The product contract will be sent to you for your acknowledgment and approval of the design and terms.
With all designs finalized and deposit received, we will now begin the process of producing your very own authentic piece of furniture. We will be updating you as soon as we get close to completion.
