The Norfolk Design Center is the perfect destination when you are building or remodeling a home, or need inspiration for transforming an existing space.  In our Ghent, Norfolk location you can sit with our professional design team and discover new trends and classic approaches.

Design-Services-ImgOur designers start with you and your needs.  We ask about the space, your likes and dislikes and how you want the room or home to feel.  Design is subjective, and by starting with you, the customer, the end design is born from your unique style and tastes, not what a designer dictates.

More Than Browsing

Working with a designer at the Norfolk Idea Center is more than looking at products and color swatches.  We help you apply your style and tastes in ways you may not have even considered.  We love it when our clients say, “Wow, we never even considered doing that.”

Come in, meet our design team, see our showroom and talk about your home.  We want to know about your lifestyle, your hobbies and interests, and how you use the spaces around your house.  The best part of working with our designers is their ability to listen to what you say, and create a design you will fall in love with again and again.  Don’t worry if you’re not sure what your “style” is — that’s why we’re here!

Call today, 757-351-4550, contact us online or stop in. Visitors are always welcome.

Although we have in-house designers, we are also proud of the great relationships we have with interior designers throughout Hampton Roads and have become a trusted resource for products and ideas.  We never compete with designers using our services. Instead, we supply products, and occasionally ideas when asked, with the designer and homeowner in mind.  If needed, we can also help with improvements and installation with our sister company, Schneider Custom Builders, or through our network of builders and remodelers who know and appreciate the Norfolk Idea Center experience and quality.  Contact us today to schedule an appointment with our design team and find out how we can be a great resource for your design business.

With the wealth of home improvement television shows and websites, homeowners in the planning stages of updating their home or building from scratch are more informed and more discerning than ever. When it comes to design elements, most homeowners benefit from shopping at design showrooms. Selecting flooring, cabinetry, plumbing fixtures, lighting, stone and solid surfaces in person allows families to get a better idea of the look and feel of their options. Being able to talk with a design professional also helps to narrow down options and coordinate choices in a single setting.

No two people are alike, and the same sentiment rings true about our homes. At the Norfolk Idea Center, our highly experienced design team helps each person navigate through the many home design options in a creative environment that stimulates great ideas and unique concepts. We address each customer’s unique wishes for their home, to create spaces that are both functional and beautiful.
