Frequently Asked Questions

Below, you will find the answers to some of our most frequently asked questions.

Q: Where are you located?

A: We do not have a store location. We come to you and work in your home, lighting and surroundings. I work mostly in the Morris County area, but since I live in southern Morris County, I often work in Union and Somerset Counties as well.

Q: Do I have to take off work in order to work with an interior decorator?

A: Not necessarily. I do have appointments available on Saturday mornings. In the summer, I have evening appointments available. Color requires daylight, so we have more time available on Summer evenings.

Q: How does Decorating Den Interiors work?

A: We work like a store that comes to you. We meet in your home so that I can get a true feel for you and the space we’ll be creating. Rooms and colors look different depending on the lighting so it is important to understand the environment of the space.

Q: How can you offer free design services?

A: Since we work more like a store, and offer products at a retail price, it allows us to include our services and design time in the price of our products.

Q: What happens on my first appointment?

A: Our first appointment is our chance to get to know each other. We will talk about your project, list everything you’d like to accomplish and establish a budget for the project.

Q: How do I determine a budget for my project?

A: Often times, my clients have no idea what the budget should be for their project size. After we list what is to be included in the project, I can suggest a budget.

Q: Is there a minimum or maximum project size?

A: No minimum! I have done projects as small as bathroom wallpaper and as large whole house projects/new construction.

Q: Will you work with my existing pieces/furnishings that are in the room?

A: I would prefer to work with some existing pieces or treasures. Sometimes it is harder to “start from scratch”. It is often harder to get a sense of my clients’ taste when the room or house is empty.

Q: Do you shop with me in other stores?

A: I don’t shop in stores with clients. Because our product library is so diverse, it makes it very easy to have just about everything needed to complete a room.

Q: What’s the timeframe to get everything in?

A: Depending on the project, things could take two to twelve weeks. Something simple like wallpaper arrives very quickly. Some upholstered furniture takes many weeks to be custom crafted.

Q: Is it returnable?

A: For the most part, no, custom products are not returnable. I have had a few small issues over the years, for which I handle on an individual basis.

Q: Can I get a plan and shop retail?

A: Although I prefer not to, I can work hourly to produce a floorplan with furniture sizes.
