The process begins with a telephonic consultation with one of the Partners. We discuss your project and set up the first introductory meeting either at our office in Worli, Mumbai or the meeting can be held over a video call. During this meeting we will understand your requirements in greater detail and will also take you through a presentation of our systems and latest work. We will also answer all your questions concerning design, project management, budgets and timelines.
Absolutely. As one of the best interior designers in India, we have been serving clients located around India and the world and have successfully completed many such projects. Most of the processes remain exactly the same as if your project were located locally in Mumbai.
We begin the design process with a thorough understanding of your requirement as well as your preffered style. This is then followed by a concept presentation during which we present you with three different design concepts. In the unlikely event that you are not happy with any of the concepts that we have shown you, we will be happy to work on additional concepts, at no additional charge.
The initial consultation would occur either at our office or over a video call. This would apply to subsequent meetings as well.
Based upon the concepts that you have approved, our team will visit showrooms and shortlist materials such as tiles, fabrics, veneers, laminates, paint shades etc. We will then prepare a mood board for you that you can see in our office. If you prefer to visit any vendor with a designer, that can also be arranged.
Our meticulous design process is structured in a manner so as to give shape to the design gradually, allowing the concept to crystallize progressively in your mind. The culmination of the design process is the 3D views of the interiors. This provides you a definitive understanding of what the final outcome will look like before on site execution begins.
Renovation costs vary widely, but broadly depend upon two main things. The existing state of the apartment and the style that you like. If the apartment that you have purchased has the flooring, bathrooms, kitchen, wall finishes and electricals already provided, the interior fit-out costs would be much less that for an apartment that is in a bare shell condition. Also, as a general rule luxurious styles tend to cost more than simpler styles.
If you opt for Nitido Design’s turnkey contracting service, you will receive a detailed estimate subsequent to approval of the 3D views. If you prefer to work with your own contractor, we will provide him with all the drawings and he will prepare the estimate for the project.
With our turnkey service, you get a very thorough and detailed BOQ for all the interior work as well as for the loose furniture pieces. We will also estimate the cost of the materials that would be required for the project. Our team would then use this estimate as a guideline when purchasing materials and selecting finishes. In case designs change along the way, you will be updated on the commercial implications of the same before our team proceeds to execute the work on the site. Together, these systems help ensure that budgets are broadly adhered to.
Our fees are charged lumpsum. The fees would depend upon the scope of work, size of the property and estimated time commitments. We would be able to quote you for the same subsequent to our first meeting.
Different payment options are available and our accounts manager would be happy to provide you with the necessary guidance.
Yes, we offer full project financing with convenient EMI’s through our finance partners Blacksoil capital.
This would depend upon a number of factors such as size of the apartment or villa and also on the existing state of the property. However as a ballppark guideline, the design phase can take between one and two months for an apartment and two and four months for a villa. Fit-outs for an apartment with existing flooring, wall finishes and bathrooms would usually take between three and four months. Interior renovation for a bare shell apartment would usually take approximately six months.
You would need to set aside no more than one or two hours a week to approve designs, approve selection of materials and to review progress.
When a client chooses our turnkey services, our team will prepare a construction schedule for the entire duration of the project as well as a material delivery schedule. Our site supervisor, designer in charge and project manager would then generate periodic progress reports and ensure compliance with timelines.
Yes. Nitido Design is a full service, turnkey interior design firm. We offer complete interior design services with interior construction/ fit-outs including civil construction, POP, electrical, plumbing, water-proofing, fitted carpentry, loose furniture and painting and polishing. We offer our clients a one point of contact throughout the course of their project.
Absolutely. From conceptual design to handover, our team will be fully responsible for managing your project, co-ordinating with all vendors and sub-contractors, for maintaining timelines and ensuring quality control. We are always by your side until you are 100% satisfied.
Nitido Design is one of the best interior designers in Mumbai and in India. For us, quality begins with good quality documentation and this includes our detailed estimates which specify brands and grades of materials that will be used in the construction of your home. Our trained site supervisors then ensure that materials are received and that construction is in strict accordance with the approved BOQ and drawing sets. Supplies are photographed and catalogued and any discrepancies are immediately brought to the notice of the design team. In addition to these measures, the designer in charge of the project also visits the site every week to have an overview of the progress.
Regardless of budgets, it is our policy to only use recognized high quality branded materials. This includes, plywood, blockboards, veneers and laminates, adhesives, all hardware, wires and switches, POP, gypsum boards as well as paints and polishes. This ensures not only a high quality finish but also durability and longevity of your residential interior design.
Yes. We also work with external contractors. In such case we will provide all the necessary drawing sets and carry out periodic site visits.
No. Since we offer a premium service all of our input costs are included within the quoted rates.
Absolutely. Though we are always happy to suggest good vendors as are required for the project, we are also most happy to select materials from the vendors of your choice.
Yes. However, we do not hire local contractors and agencies and will send our construction teams from Mumbai. As one of the best interior designers in Mumbai, this is the only way in which we can guarantee that quality standards are maintained and that timelines are observed. In such case, outstation charges would be applicable in addition to our standard rates.
Depending upon the nature of the project, the size of the spaces available and budgets we suggest either customized manufactured furniture or imported furniture or in some cases a combination of the two.
Custom made furniture can be expertly made to any design, size and specification. This is what interior designers in India really like. It gives us the flexibility to choose designs, define other parameters such as size, height and shape, and also allows us the flexibility to choose the fabrics that complement our design and color scheme.
As one of the best interior designers in Mumbai, the one thing that we never compromise on is quality. Our furniture is manufactured to the highest industry standards and all input materials used are branded and of the best available quality. Each piece of furniture that we manufacture through our trusted partners, goes through a rigorous 4 step quality assurance process that is overseen by our furniture QA/QC supervisor.
Yes of course. If you would prefer to import your furniture we will provide you all the necessary guidance as well as available options.
Of course! We are with you all the way until you move into your apartment. We will visit suppliers, shortlist accessories and décor items as well as soft furnishings and then present you with our choices as well as our opinions. We will also help you to select artwork and prints to complement your interiors. If there is anything special that you need our assistance with, we will be very happy to leverage our resources to help you acquire it.
Absolutely. As a company, we believe in building lasting relations with our clients and raising the bar for interior designers in India across all aspects of design, construction and client servicing. We are always here to help you with any assistance that you may require, be it connecting you with a vendor, following up on a warranty or for periodic maintenance.
We are greatly appreciated by our many clients for the finer quality of our interior construction. Nitido Design brings together sensible practical design selections, excellent materials, good construction techniques and expert craftsmanship. With reasonable care and periodic maintenance our interiors would typically last for fifteen to twenty years or more.
