Interior design is at the core of our expertise.
The Centerline team is passionate about collaboration, and our goal is to navigate the many phases of the remodeling and building process with you. Using your wish list and preferences as the backbone of each project, we start with the end in mind, meeting at the outset to discuss goals, aesthetics and functions that your new space or space-made-new must live up to.
Centerline follows a human-centered design ethos that aims to subtly balance design and aesthetic sensibilities with technical building excellence. With many of the traditional Maine homes we work with, this often means finding a way to seamlessly integrate traditional or historic building features with modern aesthetics and amenities.
Every type of space, every home, and every family has different tastes and needs. Our diverse team of designers understands that your identity and desires need to be at the forefront of every design project. This is why Centerline Design does not have a single “look” or dominant aesthetic, but a team of experts with a range of skills that complement and support each other on the journey to your perfected home.
Our focus on you is what sets us apart from most design firms. We collaborate frequently on an ongoing basis with you, running several design concepts and versions by you to best understand what makes the most sense for both your lifestyle and your budget. While we are very cognizant of trends and we’re proud to be lifelong learners who remain current with technologies and designs as they evolve, we are always aware that we are designing for you. This is why we remain firmly committed to the foundational principles of design, instead of chasing the most recent fads and fashions.
We never forget that after the design phase is done and your space has been remodeled in accordance with our shared vision, you and your family will need to live in the space for decades to come. So, while we feel that a beautiful and artful design is an important part of making your space the best it can be, we always place an emphasis on simplicity and functionality above pure aesthetics. After all, the true goal of remodeling is to make a space more perfect, not just to make it more appealing.
Once finalized, our talented design team works with you, the homeowners, to select all the little details that make it unique: countertops, cabinetry, and appliances, tile, lighting, hardware right down to the window treatments, furnishings and furniture; every hardscaped decorative element of the space is balanced with its utility and your tastes. Your kitchen, bathroom, living space, bedroom, or other space will reflect your aesthetic wishes and practical needs.
When a design has been completed, Centerline provides detailed drawings and specifications in order to allow contractors and installers to bring this vision to fruition in your home. Whether you’re choosing to work with Centerline Built or with another contractor, every necessary detail, and our direct insights will be available for collaboration on your project.
