FAQ
Do you have courses?

Yes, we have an online design course for everyone who wants to learn how to plan and design their own space. And another online course with a deep dive into styles and decor. But currently they available only in Russian. We are working on English version.

Is there a minimum threshold of floor space for ordering a project?

No, but for objects less than 100 sq.m., the project development cost is calculated as per 100 sq.m., at the price specified in the section “Services and Prices”. Public spaces are an exception.

When can design project development be started?

As soon as we have access to the object for taking measurements. However, the earlier – the better, we usually recommend starting the development of at least 3 months before the commissioning of the building, so builders could get right to work immediately after you get the keys.

What period is required for the creation of the design project?

The term required for design project development depends on the size of the site and its complexity. For example, for a standard apartment up to 100 sq.m., the development period usually takes up to 16 weeks.

Which works are not included in the design project?

The composition of the design project documentation does not include working projects on the following sections: engineering calculations of loads on structures, calculations of the electrical power part, calculations of ventilation, heating, sewerage, air conditioning, smart home, and other work not specified in the design project. Non-included works are performed with the involvement of specialized contractors.

Is it possible to start the renovation at the same time with the development of the design project?

No, you should start work only after the design project is absolutely finished. If you start the work during the development, the least bad thing that may occur is that the amount of work will increase, and in the worst case, builders will do extra work or vice versa, will not take into account, for example, embedded parts, which will further lead to rework and additional costs.

How long does it take to renovate?

The time of renovation process may depend on the time of year, the condition of the site, the members of the work team and the number of shifts, the complexity of the project, whether you order it in advance before commissioning of the building, as well as specific design solutions and, of course, the floor space and scope of work. Builders can adequately estimate terms only after preparation of the design project when the volume of forthcoming works and all decisions will be clear. Also, the total time frame of execution can be affected by the need to wait for custom-made items both finishing materials and all custom-made furniture.

Do you create a design project for 1 room?

No, we do not do room design, we only design objects entirely.

Do you work in other cities and countries? Do you design projects for sites in other cities and countries?

Yes, we design projects for sites all over the world, in different cities and countries. The only difference is that you will have to provide us with measurements and photos of the initial space (we provide you with detailed instructions on how to do that), the entire further development process is a standard one.

How do I request a design project?

You have to submit a request form on the website or send an email to hello@shelnat.com, providing your name and size of the site.
