FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

We begin our design relationship with the “Initial Consultation Package” which consists of 4 hours of time for $500.00. The first appointment is usually one to two hours, leaving a couple of hours to begin work on the design. If the scope of work is more extensive than four hours, a design fee will be assessed and agreed upon, based on the time the project will take.

Design fees over the initial $500 fee can be credited back to the client when the design is contracted, procured, and installed by Fitzsimmons Design Associates, Inc. This is done on a prorated basis against the portion of the design purchased.  Since we own and operate a retail furnishings store we are able to offer a 20% discount off of the manufacturer’s retail pricing on all furniture that is purchased as part of the design project.

Contact us today to set up an appointment. The design fee rebate and 20% discount enable you to have a professionally designed home. It is easier and more cost effective than you may have imagined.

How did you get started in this business?

I started my firm in 1991 on Maryland Avenue in a little shop filled with home furnishings and offered Design Services for residential clients.


What types of customers have you worked with?

All types!


Describe a recent project you are fond of.

I had a client pay a million dollars for a waterfront home with a spectacular views. It was an old tired home with lots of potential. We moved some walls around, updated the kitchen without having to tear it all out, renovated an upstairs Hall Bath, and furnished all of the key rooms. The results were fabulous and so very satisfying!


What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a pro in your area of expertise?

A good place to start would be to make a list and put a 1,2,or 3 by each listing to prioritize your projects. Then ask your designer what it might cost for each item. Then you can make an intelligent decision on what you would like to tackle.


What questions should customers think through before talking to pros about their needs?

It always helps to be honest about your budget, let your designer help plan how you can get the most for your dollar.
