WHY PARTNERING WITH A COMMERCIAL INTERIOR DESIGNER IS WORTH THE INVESTMENT:
As you well know, commercial projects are not always the easiest projects to execute. There are a lot of moving parts and pieces to keep track of, which is why it is so important to have the right people on board. Whether you’re renovating a space or building from the ground up, partnering with a commercial interior designer can be one of the best business decisions that you make.
Although there are countless ways in which an interior designer will make your life easier, we have created a list of top reasons below, compiled from the comments and testimonials we’ve received from our clients and industry partners.
01. SAVE TIME AND HAVE THE ABILITY TO FOCUS ON YOUR CRAFT.
We work with many different professionals in the industry including architects, builders, developers and a wide variety of construction trades. When it comes to working on a commercial project, we all have an important role to play and partnering with a commercial interior designer can allow you to focus on your unique expertise.
We tackle the tasks that may take a non-designer weeks to complete, including space planning, preparing elevations, 3-dimensional renderings, project management, etc. Our streamlined design process ensures that your project will be executed smoothly and completed within the given timeframe. Our services free you up to focus on the things that you do best, creating a more efficient job site and a more enjoyable experience for everyone involved.
02. OUR EXPERIENCE WILL SAVE YOU MONEY AND HELP YOU STAY ON BUDGET.
We live and breathe interior design. We know our products and we use our expertise to help you make the best selections for your project. We’ve already done the research so you don’t have to. Our years of experience have allowed us to recognize what vendors offer quality products, which will help us identify which materials are right for your individual project, timeline and budget.
We are also very knowledgeable about ADA requirements and building codes. We can help you identify and avoid costly mistakes before they happen. Commercial laws and regulations are a very important part of making material selections and partnering with a commercial interior designer will save you time and money by helping you make the right selections the first time. Wondering if this applies to your project? Contact us today to discuss and find out!
03. WE THINK AND DESIGN OUTSIDE THE BOX.
As designers, we are constantly analyzing new products and materials to expand our knowledge and stay on top of industry trends. Our continuous research keeps our ideas fresh and adds to our ever-expanding library of materials. We have an eye for detail and pay extra attention to the aspects of a space that others are likely to miss.
We love to create WOW factor and have an innate sense of style and professional experience to infuse your space with unique flair and functionality. At SMID, we wholeheartedly believe that the partnerships created between commercial designers and other industry experts are the key to creating spaces that are inspiring and designs that will stand the test of time.

04. WE BRING STYLE & FUNCTIONALITY.
Style is important in every space, but functionality is just as important (if not more so) in a commercial setting. It’s easy to design a space that looks good, but it may not end up functioning as well as you’d like. Luckily, as trained commercial designers, we are able to accomplish both in equal amounts.
At SMID, we know about the latest commercial design trends and materials to ensure that functionality meets and exceeds your expectations. We are also aware that the design of a space significantly impacts the moods and productivity of the people within it. We always keep this idea in the forefront of our minds to create a space that has a positive impact on everyone’s perception.
Want to hear about it first-hand? Here are a few testimonials from our clients:
“We couldn’t be happier with the design results Sarah did for our large-scale remodel project at Beachwood Grill. After giving Sara a few ideas of what we were looking for, she presented a design and concept right on point for what we envisioned. Sarah also kept contractors on a difficult time schedule and saw the project through from start to finish. We couldn’t be happier with the results and more importantly, all of our guests have been equally impressed.”
RUSS SHILANDER, BEECHWOOD GRILL
“Our experience with Sarah was exceptional. We could not be happier with the end result and overall design. Our staff continues to receive so many compliments about our showroom and all the unique features Sarah incorporated throughout the retail store. We would highly recommend Sarah for anyone looking to update a retail space!”
KRISTA CHALIFOUR, HOLLAND BOWL MILL
“ The creative way you told our brand story is appreciated. The attentive project management throughout the entire project exceeded our expectations. The achievement of showcasing technology and flexible workspaces is what makes our new location successful every day.”
TIM HENEVELD, AVI-SPL
“It’s been my pleasure to work with Sarah Moneybrake over the past two years as we transformed our very dated church foyer, prayer room, coffee center and offices into beautiful and functional spaces. Sarah is a great listener. She picks up on cues in conversations, presents good options to consider, offers expert advice on design, and is conscientious about the budget. Her attention to detail serves her well in working with the trades as well as her clients. She is a great resource in providing designs and furnishings that work well in public spaces.”
