Professional Design Services
Interior design is an investment in your home. Your design will have the value of an experienced and knowledgeable designer to help you find the perfect furnishings. Not only will the scale and color scheme be perfect for your taste and home, but safety, health and handicap accessibility will also be addressed as we create the home that will nurture your entire family.
Restoration Interior Design is a residential design firm that designs for both new homes and old homes needing restoration. We will space plan a room or entire house. Our skills include designing window treatments, wall treatments, lighting plans and selection of flooring, tile, fabrics, furniture, lamps, art, accessories and bedding.
Besides space planning, we create interior and exterior lighting and electrical plans, architectural detail drawings, scale elevation and plan drawings of tile, built-ins or stand alone furniture. We create finish schedules for the entire house including paint, wall and ceiling selections with cabinetry and molding details. We advise you on opening walls for more natural light and better traffic flow.
Even though our office is located in Columbia, Maryland, we provide design services in the entire Central Maryland region. Please feel free to contact us if you live in Howard County, Baltimore County, Baltimore City, Carroll County, Montgomery County, Frederick County and Anne Arundel County.
