INTERIOR DESIGN PROCESS
Step 1: Concept Creation
The first part of the interior design process at Dkor always starts with a concept. It is here that we create an agreed upon flow to your space.
Step 2: Design Development
After a concept is established, your project’s team develops the scope of your space further by developing the home’s design features and selecting material finishes, plumbing fixtures, lighting, furniture and accessories. This is also the phase where we work closely with an architect to develop your construction Documents, including all RCP, Plumbing and Electrical plans.
Step 3: Selections
After establishing the first layer of materials and features in your home, we develop ideas and presentations regarding furniture, lighting, and accessories. In addition to our in studio presentations, we also schedule meetings at local showrooms to view the proposed furniture in store.
Step 4: Planning and Specifications
When the design and selections of your home has been approved by you, the implementation process of the design begins. We prepare specification outlining in detail the intent of the design, as well as interior plans for General Contractors and sub-contractors to begin quoting the scope of work. We review these specifications with you to ensure all function needs are delineated.
Step 5: Construction
Now here’s the fun part! After all design has been solidified and materials have been ordered, we break ground and begin building. We work very closely with our General Contractor to ensure all flooring, tiles, plumbing and electrical items get installed per plan, functions correctly and looks beautiful.
Step 6: Procurement
At DKOR, every project is assigned a dedicated Project Manager. This person is responsible for ensuring a flawless and timely execution of your home’s construction and turnover. We are basically “on call” to make daily, weekly and monthly site visits and work very closely with all of our vendors, trades and sub contractors during the project’s partnership. Among construction management, your “PM” is also responsible for your project’s accounting, finances and purchasing.
Step 7: Project Turnover
Also know as “The Big Reveal!” During a project’s turnover, we don’t count on getting much sleep this week. This is a crucial turning point in the project as every last detail is solidified. During this time we all pull together and take on certain tasks: shopping for accessories, wrapping up any last minute touch ups with our carpenters, moving in all of your brand new furniture with great care, cleaning and hanging every last piece of wall art. After your new home is perfectly staged, we take professional photographs and then walk you through the big reveal. A very exciting and emotional day to look forward to!
The kitchen truly is the heart of the home. Over the past several years of working with clients, we know this to be true. Kitchens are where families gather during special events. They are where friends congregate for an after school snack. They are where mom or dad helps kids with their homework while cooking dinner. Needless to say, they are important spaces.
Kitchens are also one of the main rooms that clients find it very useful to work with an interior design team who understands the materials, spacing, and more that go into the design of a dream kitchen. There is so much to consider when designing a kitchen. While it needs to be gorgeous, it is more important that it meets the needs of our clients’ daily routines. Because who cares about a beautiful, creative kitchen if it does not work right.
We have experience working with several well-known kitchen companies in the southern Florida area and beyond. Therefore, we are able to guide our clients through the kitchen design process, from choosing the quality and finishes that best work with the ergonomics of a home to fitting that all into an aligned-on budget. In addition to those considerations, it is important to utilize every inch of space. Whether you are looking to build your dream kitchen in a palatial residence or a space-challenged apartment, we work with kitchen design companies and our clients to ensure that our designs are very efficient and there is no loss of space.

Master Bedroom Design
The master bedroom is one of the most important rooms in a home, and as such it is key to gather all of the master bedroom ideas before beginning to design. This space, combined with an attached bathroom and walk-in closet, is generally called the master suite. The master bedroom is usually the largest bedroom, reserved for the head of the family. At DKOR, a Miami-based design firm, we have dreamed up many creative master bedroom designs, each one with a particular style and features, to meet our clients’ needs.
Often, our clients focus on common areas, like the living room, dining room, and kitchen, or their children’s bedrooms before putting time and energy into designing a space for themselves. That is part of the reason we love designing master bedrooms—we get to give our clients the perfect place to rest their head at the end of the day, after they have taken care of their family, friends, and careers.
Whether in a penthouse apartment, condo, new construction, or renovation, there are a lot of aspects that need to be considered when designing a master bedroom. As top interior designers in Miami, we bring each of those elements into any master bedroom design concept we create. To begin, we take into consideration the style of the rest of the house and then create a more peaceful, calming, relaxing version of that for the master bedroom.
It is important for master bedrooms, no matter whether they are done in a modern, contemporary, traditional, or any other style, to be a place where the head of the family can find peace at the end of the day. On the color wheel, cool hues, like blue, green, gray, and purple, help set a calming tone. But if our clients do not prefer these colors, there are other ways we can create the right mood in their master bedroom. One designer trick is: symmetry. Symmetry is soothing, which is why pairs of matching lamps, nightstands, artwork, and more are often found in master bedrooms.
These are just a few of the aspects to consider when designing a master bedroom. The good news is you can start gathering inspiration to spark your design imagination by browsing the many master bedrooms we have completed for clients over the years in this portfolio page.
