Frequently Asked Questions

How Does decorateITonline Work?

Once you select the e-decorating package that best fits your needs, you’ll be brought to the StyleFinder survey where you’ll send us your room photos and measurements, and answer a few simple questions about your personal design style. We will then review your information and create a comprehensive DIY (do it yourself) design portfolio just for you. Your Personalized Design Portfolio will visually show you what needs to be done to make your home look fabulous. You can print off your portfolio and go shopping, or roll up your sleeves and just get to work. Your dream home really is possible and within easy reach!

How do I access my design solutions portfolio?

Your Design Portfolio will be completed roughly 10-14 days after you complete the StyleFinder survey. You will be given access to your own private portfolio page, where you can access your virtual Design Portfolio whenever and wherever it is convenient for you – you can even print it off to show your friends or keep close at hand when you are shopping. You will also have unlimited access to your portfolio after it’s completed.

What is the StyleFinder tool?

The StyleFinder tool is how we create an interior design decorating plan customized to your style preferences. You are asked to answer a series of simple questions pertaining to your room, how it’s used, and what is important to you – then you get to select designs that appeal to you. It’s a fun, interactive way to get to know your style. We then take all of this information and use it to create a space that functions well for your lifestyle and personal taste.

What do I need to do?

That’s easy! Select the online decorating package that you would like, take digital photos of the space that you would like our professional interior design advice on, then complete the StyleFinder tool. It only takes about 20 minutes. Once you’ve completed the StyleFinder tool, one of our remote decorators will have your customized design portfolio ready in about 5 days.

I just have a few decorating questions, can you help?

YES! Our Decorator On Call service is specifically designed for people who are confident in their home decorating skills but have a few questions that they’d like answered by a professional home decorator, online. Unlike a complete styleIT decorating plan the decorator on-call service is specific answers to each of your individual decorating questions. Learn More

What if I do not want to purchase anything else for my room?

That’s entirely up to you! We ask you upfront what your budget is and we do our best to keep that in mind when making recommendations for your space. However, in most cases additional décor items are the best way to give your room a fresh new look… and really that’s why you are hiring an Interior Decorator! You can also use you comprehensive Shopping List to go shopping in your own home – you may already own items that fit the bill. Another great idea is to host a decorating swap meet with your friends: get everyone to bring their unwanted décor items to a “Decorating Party” and swap! It’s a great way to clear out your clutter and redecorate without spending a dime! Plus it’s a great excuse to get together with your friends and neighbors!

What if I do not like the design solutions provided to me?

With decorateITonline you are hiring Interior Decorating professionals. We create your comprehensive personalized design based on the answers you provide in your StyleFinder tool. So try it – we think you’ll be pleasantly surprised with the results! We also offer  a 100% satisfaction guarantee. If you’re not completely thrilled with your e-decorating portfolio, just let us know and we will do everything we can to make it right for you.

Can I ask questions if I do not understand my portfolio?

So, if you are a detail oriented, analytical person (and you know if you are!) we recommend the styleIT 3-D service as it is the most comprehensive portfolio that we offer. Alternately, if you don’t have an account with us you can also post your question on our Blog and get your answer for free.
