F.A.Q.

Why offer online design services?

Some clients are much more technological savvy and willing to partake in the process if it means saving costs on design fees and maximizing the project budget on product. The common misconception is that online design is decorating - it is not. Our Design Express services are just as personal and professional as full-service design projects.

Who does the design work?

Depending on our workload, the concepts are produced in our think-tank process with all hands on deck. The tiny details would be completed by the entire Design Team at different steps in the process.

How will we know your tastes?

All of our projects include our 40-page Client Project Planner and it is extremely comprehensive. On top of that, you'll upload photographs of your existing space and add inspiration images for each room so we can see what style or details you like and tailor the design to you.

Can we work with your existing furniture?

If that's what you want, of course!

When will the finished package be ready?

Typically design packages are completed in under 30 days, workload permitting. If you're concerned about timeline, it's best to contact us before you purchase.

Why do we charge up-front?

Design Express is fast and thorough. Consider that the valuable services we provide are on the same scale as a high-end television, computer, or vacation.

Why is CKID better than the other online design services?

Simple: we do not compromise the design process, we only streamline it. We've worked in the trenches and earned our designer-chops. We provide real expert design skills, experience, knowledge, and planning.
