Our Three-Phase Approach to Interior Design
In business nearly 30 years, MainStreet Design Build has developed a simple, streamlined process for interior design that enables clients to relax throughout their project, confident in our execution. Our three-phase approach is designed to help you plan and design a stylistic, cost-effective solution for your home while keeping you informed and fully immersed in the details. Our process also ensures that you will have full approval on issues of style and budget before work commences.
Phase 1: Initial Consultation, Intake, and Brainstorming
During the intake process, we will determine the design scope of your project, finding your vision for style and how you want to make use of your living space. Our goal is to customize all design elements so you will feel happy and comfortable in your home—working together collaboratively to find the best option(s) for you.
What You Can Expect:
Phase 1 includes working out a budget with you and creating a timeline with project milestones. You’ll have an overall view of the project and what needs to be done and when. With all the project details settled, it’s time to begin the design work phase in earnest.
Phase 2: Design Work Begins
We take all of the information obtained from you during intake and develop a finished presentation with all of the interior design details. This process can take a few weeks, depending on the complexity of the project.
What You Can Expect:
Our team creates a presentation that describes the entire interior design effort and shows you how each element fits into your budget and time frame. In addition to seeing and feeling product selections and design samples, you will have a clear picture of your project and how every detail fits together through the use of 3D modeling—creating greater realism and depth.
At this point, your design project is starting to become real, with all of the intricate details coming together for your review and approval.
Phase 3: Transforming the Vision for Your Space into Reality
Now your home is undergoing a dramatic transformation. During phase 3, once you have given your approval for the design plans, our talented team gets to work on carrying out your vision.
What You Can Expect:
Our many years of experience enables us to develop a well-thought-out budget and schedule, which we will finish on time and within our agreed upon financial requirements. During this time, all of the customized design elements you require are being built or ordered, ready for delivery when the time comes.
The final step is the installation. This is where we take your interior space(s) and turn it into a beautiful work of art, worthy of being on the cover of a magazine!

“MainStreet has been very easy to work with. All dealings have been handled in a very professional manner and we have always had the feeling that they are working for us. Their workmen are quite skilled and the subcontractors all do quality work. We get the feeling that they are concerned about doing the job right. We will use them again and highly recommend them to others. Their work is something we proudly show off to others and often get nice unsolicited comments from others. You can not go wrong with MainStreet Design Build. As you can tell, we are happy we chose them for our project.”

We absolutely love our new space and are very pleased with our decision to select Main Street.
Main Street did our complete home remodel in 2020-2021. They were perfect professionals, and we never had any of the problems that we ran into with EVERY.OTHER.CONTRACTOR.IN.EXISTENCE. I cannot recommend them enough!
“This is the third kitchen remodel that we have done in our 52 years of marriage and this was by far our best experience. Main Street is a team of professionals, each with expertise in their field, who guided us along. Everyone was always organized and knowledgeable. The carpentry workmanship was exceptional and any issue was immediately addressed by the project manager and solved. They said they wanted to make us happy and they did!”
MainStreet was honest and upfront about the cost of our addition. There were no surprises – they did not low ball up front to add on at the end. The quality and professionalism of the entire team was outstanding. You truly get what you pay for with MainStreet.
Mainstreet is an exceptional company! We could not ask for more. To the design process to the construction and the end product. Just perfect!
I just wanted to say a huge thank you for all your work in making my kitchen so beautiful! I came across photos of the old kitchen the other day, and wowza… it used to be so wild. I had forgotten how bad it was. I’ve really been enjoying the kitchen: love the layout, and the cabinets & countertops, and just how open it feels. I know there were some tough times, and Covid didn’t make it any easier, so I really appreciate you both sticking it out and doing a fabulous job!
Christopher provided the vision and helped execute the plan. He was so helpful guiding me in all selections and making sure we stuck to our plan. My kitchen refresh is everything and more. My kitchen now looks like it belongs in my home and really is a “wow” feature. I just love, love, love the way it came out!
I want to let you know what an outstanding job Marq has been doing. Toward the end of the project we started communicating more by phone. He has been so responsive and attentive! My husband and I really appreciate him and we wanted to be sure to let you know! Big kudos to Marq!! I love the work you did SOOOO much! I am obsessed with the new space! We spoke to about 6 architects/contractors and nobody had the design ideas that Doug had. He had a vision and it was executed better than I could have even imagined! And with Christopher’s help/guidance- he made the interior design so fun/easy- he helped turned it into my dream space! As we wrap up this project I want to say THANK YOU! I could not be happier with our new space. As for Marq- I am so grateful for him! he helped up end this project on such a positive note. It feels great!
