Interior Design Quick Fact 2

"A well-informed designer with knowledge of building science and permit requirements can get building projects through with the minimum number of revisions.  Also by managing your budget as well as the work of other professionals,  they can prevent you from hiring inexperienced unscrupulous tradespeople.

"They understand the process, they are your advocate, and can relay information to the trades and builders,source the right materials, coordinate the implementation of the design and follow up on the quality of the work until the project is complete."

Interior Design Quick Fact 4

"A designer can give you a professional assessment of your situation, that will lead to a solid plan of action. The order of things in a design plan is key in determining what can be repurposed or should be edited. This will not only effect the budget but help you to spend it more efficiently.”

About Icon

Kelowna Interior Designer Chandra Payer

absolute interior design is about a certain style, an inspired space.

After completing her education in Interior Design in 1996, Chandra Payer, owner and lead designer, gained valuable experience and "hands on training" working with an established Interior Design Firm in Kelowna that specialized in providing high end design and quality products.  

After making the decision to venture out on her own in 2009, Chandra created Kelowna Absolute Interior Design Inc. and has spent years working to provide exceptional interior design to both residential and commercial clients throughout the Okanagan. Her passion for exceptional design and her trademark attention to detail led to the desire to provide a more "complete" and unique experience for her clients. She set out to build a team of exceptional, qualified, skilled tradespeople and suppliers that shared her uncompromising vision for quality product and workmanship with exceptional results. She is committed  to meeting the needs of each and every client; working as designer and/or project manager, collaborating with the trades and the clients alike to create a vision for the space, while also overseeing the timelines and budgets, through project completion.

"For me, great design is always a good investment. Whether on a budget, or with unlimited funds, our clients appreciate good value, and they trust me, along with my team, to create a space that functions well, feels good and looks amazing. When we provide exceptional results and exceed  expectations, then and only then, do we consider the project complete!"
