Services Offered

The Interior Motives design team excels at pre-construction and remodeling planning as well as comprehensive soft furnishings services. Their team of designers offers you an extensive resource of skills and talents to help achieve your design goals.

Pre-Construction and Remodeling Planning
Design options will be specified for faucets and fixtures, hard surfaces, flooring, lighting, interior/exterior finishes, appliances and cabinetry. A specification binder, assembled specifically for your project, is provided to help you and your contractor stay organized and on schedule.

Architectural Detailing
Interior Motives will evaluate, create and enhance architectural detailing for every aspect of your home. Special attention is given to curb appeal, built-ins, fireplaces, ceilings and other points of interest. The goal is to create an aesthetically appealing environment. It is a great opportunity to add both charm and character to the structure of your home or office.

Floor Plan Review
A detailed analysis of your floor plan is essential in ensuring the functionality and aesthetics of a design. All factors affecting the traffic flow, from furniture placement to door swings, are taken into consideration.
Flooring and Hard Surfaces
Interior Motives will specify, design, and sketch custom designs for flooring and hard surface elements in your space. To ease the selection process, Interior Motives keeps an extensive resource of carpet, ceramic tile, stone, granite and decorative accents in their showroom. Installation is also available through their flooring division.

Lighting Plan Design
IMI takes into consideration all forms of light within a space. The object of lighting design is to consider how light reveals the form and color of the elements of a project, how the users visually interact with it and how best to provide the functional lighting levels that are required for each project.

Furniture Selections and Custom Designs
Furniture and fabrics will be based on function, style, scale and budget. Interior Motives offer a wide selection of furniture, as well as custom designs, to complement any environment and personal taste.

Interior Motives designers will assist you in selecting paint, faux finishes and other wall coverings with a focus on coordinating a color scheme to your furnishings.

Window Couture Design
Custom window treatments (blinds, wood shutters, retractable solar screens and custom drapery) will be designed using unique fabrics and materials to enhance the overall design while fulfilling the functions of privacy and sun control.

"We don't compromise good design to incorporate
green products. We develop sustainable interiors
because that is good design."

Interior Motives doesn't believe sustainable
design has to be cold and uninviting, because it is
more than just the implementation of Green products.
Sustainability is also about smart, functional design.

With IMI's Award Winning and LEED accredited
designers, they achieve sustainable design for the
gracious home. After all, the space in which we live
should not only affect us in a positive, uplifting way,
but it should do the same for the environment. Through IMI's designs, they create luxurious interiors that are environmentally aware, which provides the added benefit of healthy spaces and reduced lifecycle costs to our clients. IMI is a corporate member of the United States Green Building Council (USGBC).
