If you are considering a Remodel project we would love to help you transform your current space into the one you've always dreamed of! Remodel projects can be a lot to manage on your own and are also an investment so by working with us we can eliminate much of the stress that comes from making selections, figuring out best layouts, and much more. Throughout the remodel process we will partner with your chosen General Contractor to make sure we're all on the same page which ensures a great working experience for all parties. For ALL remodel projects we HIGHLY recommend having a General Contractor and NOT doing it yourself. At this time, we are only accepting projects that want a General Contractor.
Our Remodel Service begins with a $350 investment for a 1.5-hour consultation. During this appointment we take a tour of your home and discuss your vision for each space. You may choose to have Authentic Design Studio assist you with the next steps or embrace our ideas and complete your vision on your own. In the end, you’ll receive a project proposal outlining our services based on the scope of work. The timeline for remodel projects can range from 4 months-1 year depending on the scope of the project.
Five things you need to know when considering a Remodel Project
1. Hire an Interior Designer first! Working with an interior designer eliminates costly mistakes and makes your remodel investment worth it! With our expertise we can help you have a good understanding of what your project could cost, and also bring ideas to the table that will completely transform your space. We are planners which means most every detail will be accounted for and we can go to the contractor with a well thought out and organized game plan.
2.We can't stress this enough: Hire a GC SECOND. Why? Because if there isn't a clear idea of what the project entails from the start, the contractor will not only have a difficult time pricing accurately but there will be delays from the start or finish of your project as the contractor works on the fly to line up the necessary subcontractors. For example: If there isn’t a clear plan for moving your vanity before you meet a contractor, there will be a delay when you eventually bring in a designer and find out you need a plumber to move the vanity drain.
3. If it is a big remodel we HIGHLY RECOMMEND you do NOT live in the space (unless you can occupy another level of the home with everything you need). Most days demo will be taking place and that creates a lot of dust, there's power tools, and in our opinion it just adds to the stress living in a home that's under construction.
4. Plan for your project to take longer than expected. Of course we do our best to try to avoid delays but sometimes with construction things come up.
5. Have a buffer! We will go into the remodel project with a plan and budget for the things we can see but sometimes when we start getting into walls there might be areas exposed that we couldn't have budgeted for. With this we recommend having a buffer of at least 10% however 20% is better.
1) Every project begins with a Discovery Call to learn more about your needs and share with you our services.
2) Shall you desire to schedule an in-home consultation, from there, we will meet with you at your home to gain a full understanding of the scope of work. During this time together we can also answer any design questions you may have.
3) From there, we will create a custom proposal for your review and consideration. Once you decide to move forward in working together we send you a design questionnaire to gain a deeper understanding of you and the ones living in the space(s).
4) Upon completion of the questionnaire, we enter the Design Phase! This is where the development of your design takes place including all materials needed to present a detailed design.
5) After procurement and installation, we wrap up your project with a photoshoot and a gift to Thank You for entrusting us with your home. Then, we leave you to enjoy your very own Authentic Design.

We didn’t know what to do. My wife, Peppur, and I had recently bought a house in Chandler Arizona that needed some love. Initially we thought we could handle most of the interior design and remodel on our own. Ha! After a brief freak out period we pivoted and our real estate agent, insert plug for Aurora if appropriate, introduced us to Ashley and Authentic Design Studio. From the outset Peppur and Ashley connected on the overarching theme and feel for our entire first floor (living room, kitchen, dining room, and guest bathroom) design / remodel. Throughout the entire process Ashley thoughtfully and effectively communicated with us. Even through some of the challenges (and there are always challenges) we never felt neglected or alone. We came in on time and on budget and most importantly we absolutely LOVE the final result. It is now our home with reflections of both of our personalities. Highly recommend!

I couldn't give higher praise for Ashley and Authentic Design Studios if I tried! She was such a pleasure to work with and our space is just a giant breath of fresh air. My significant other and I had similar design taste in some areas, and completely opposite taste in others. Ashley did such a wonderful job of finding ways at every step of the process to appease both of our taste. She was so honest and kind and I appreciated her bright nature and professionalism so very much. Ashley worked around our incredibly hectic schedule with ease and was so accommodating. I walk into our space and it feels like home. There is far less clutter, but the space feels full and just perfect. Authentic Design Studios offered us consultations to get the feel of what we were looking for just right before we moved forward with making purchases and that helped to put my anxious mind at rest. I truly couldn't recommend her enough!
Working with Ashley was such a dream. She took the stress out of the design process. She’s very good at listening to ideas and bringing them to life while also adding her own touch to a project within a budget you set. Our home design feels very much like us and I think that’s the best part about working with her. She’s responsive and so helpful with questions. She isn’t just our designer, she’s become a dear friend and I’m so glad we worked with her on our home
Ashley was incredible to work with. From the very beginning of the process she listened to our vision and took charge to put it into action. Ashley was very easy to communicate with and always responded quickly. We had delays with Crate and Barrel and Ashley took charge to contact them multiple times to get resolutions. I would 100% recommend Ashley without hesitation. We can’t wait to use Ashley for the rest of our design process!
"I love the colors you selected and the art wall is beautiful! The space feels so open and yet intimate and inviting"
Those comments are from friends and family who have seen Ashley's work at our home. We are also thrilled! Ashley has a fantastic eye for paint colors, tile, stone, fixture and fabric selections. She designed our living room, family room, dining room, master bedroom, hall and master baths. Each room she considered our personal style preferences and then added just the right touches to pull the rooms together. Ashley also considered our budget, wisely balancing the splurge items along with less expensive purchases. This was our first time working with Ashley since we are new to the area. We anticipate a kitchen remodel within the next few years and we will only consider it when Ashley is available as our designer. Yup, she's that good!

We were really impressed with how detail-oriented Ashley is. She helped transform our cookie cutter house into something amazing. She is a fantastic listener and does a great job integrating your hobbies and passions into her designs.
This may seem like a small thing but something I mentioned to Ashley is that I'm sensitive to bright lights. We really weren't sure how to navigate that since a lot of pendants and other lights have some soft or fogged or see-through glass shade. Ashley was able to source some lights with metals shades that not only solved this problem but look fantastic! Just one small example of how helpful she is.
We loved working with Ashley and hope to work with her again in the future!
