interior lifestyle

When the pandemic first hit in March 2020, people had to adjust to interior living fast. Now we’re a year in, and people haven’t just adjusted, they’ve evolved their spaces into a fully functional interior lifestyle! Good Space has received great inspiration from clients wanting to adapt their homes to more indoor living, even having to think a little outside-of-the-box! For instance, bedrooms have become offices, living rooms into gyms, and garages into sacred spaces just for you. Instead of seeing this as the “new normal”, we see it as the human capacity for adapting.

This has created interior design as we’ve never seen before, and we want to share these ideas with you so you can start planning your own creative space. We have worked on 2 interior design plans and are currently working on 1 plan that gives our clients new interior lifestyles. This includes: 

  • a his and hers shared office and a sewing area just for him
  • building a She-Shed for a mom to find a creative retreat in, 
  • and a basement “Batcave” that a family can enjoy entertainment in. 

Read below to find out how we infused the new interior lifestyle for each of these projects. 

Sewing Room Delight

Husband’s Sewing Room Plan

Do you have a room for your specific hobby? This is always important so you have a place to express yourself and grow your skills. We featured our client’s cozy Bungalow in an extensive case study a while back, but there was one room we didn’t feature. This is the husband’s brand new sewing room and their fun two workstation office.

In the initial Inform Phase, we planned out with them what they wanted the space to accomplish. The husband loved to sew but didn’t feel like he had the room to do it and they each wanted a workstation for their various projects. We then devised a Good Space Plan Online to put the sewing area in the home office while maintaining two work areas. We sourced them functional desks, storage, while reusing existing bookshelves and specified millwork design that could give him a place to sew in a small space. 

What this design tells us is no matter how small a space may be – there is always room to utilize. Take a look around the room you’re in right now. Are there nooks and corners that aren’t being used? This is the best way to create a hobby space for your new interior lifestyle. 

She-Shed for a Busy Mom

interior lifestyle she shed

Dwaina Sprague She Shed

Our founder Dwaina’s blog on her She-Shed was hugely popular! In it she talked about the need to create a shed in her backyard just for her. She said the “size of a space doesn’t matter, but the intention does”. For busy moms and partners who have a lot on their plate, finding a space to retreat and relax that’s just for them is important for your overall wellbeing. That’s where the She-Shed has become so revolutionary. 

“Size doesn’t matter but the intention does.” – Dwaina Sprague

Our new client echoes the feelings a lot of working moms share right now. Women still do most of the heavy lifting for domestic responsibilities. Plus, work is done primarily at home now (thanks Covid)! Our client needed a place to seek calm, relax, study and get some work done and that’s why we’re creating a personalized She-Shed.

She-Sheds are different for each woman, but they have this in common: 

  • Warm and comfortable in design, 
  • Highlights your hobby or specific things that spark joy,
  • A place to reflect and dance or stretch or just sit on the floor and meditate.
  • Always includes a potential for extra seating and that extra teacup to share the moments. 

We hope this new She-Shed will be ready by this summer. Until then we’re enjoying creating a space for our client that she can call her own. 

Entertainment Batcave for the Whole Family

basement batcave

The new interior lifestyle is not just about spaces for work and meditation, they’re also for fun! It’s important that we enjoy the time we spend indoors right now. What better way to do that then create an entertainment room for the whole family! 

Our client recently built a custom basement entertainment room, or “Batcave” as he calls it. In it we used a bold wall colour to give a sense of grounding. We sourced them a stunning and comfortable custom sectional from Van Gogh Designs, plus a media unit from Mobital Group. The entire renovation was done with the professional help of Lyle Construction. It’s now a room befitting for Bruce Wayne and an entertainment space that every family deserves. 

We can’t wait to see the movie marathons they binge while enjoying their new interior lifestyle in this room. 

How to create your own multifunctional space

With these great examples of functional design done differently, we bet you are eager to start to recreate your own space! Well, we are happy to start you in the right direction with a few tips. 

In the past, we wrote about how to create a sacred space. A sacred space is a small corner, room, or nook that is just for you to decompress after a long day. To create a sacred space you should: 

  • Declutter your space,
  • Giving purpose to your space,
  • And add the right lighting and ambiance.

Creating a multifunctional space is not that different from creating a sacred space. The main difference is you want your multifunctional space to be able to serve more than one purpose. Your living room may need to become a homeschool for your kids, and your garage may need to be a place for you to exercise right now. 

Here are the top tips on how to create a multifunctional space for your interior lifestyle from Canadian Home Trends:

Invest in Storage

Store away any unnecessary furniture or clutter that doesn’t serve the interior lifestyle you’re trying to accomplish. The amount of space in your home is more important than ever. Our frequent partner and favourite professional organizer SOS My Space can give the best advice on how to organize and store clutter. 

Use Every Inch of your Space

There are ways to maximize the entire surface area of your homes. For example, corner desks are a great way to utilize often forgotten corners into office spaces. They look great too! 

Design it Up

Multifunctional spaces still need to feel homey. Just because we’re adding practicality to it doesn’t mean we shouldn’t let the fun of design go. Make sure to add personal touches to your multifunctional space that are unique to you. This will make using your new space more fun and invigorating. The last thing we want is to turn your bedroom into a cubicle. 

Creating a creative, multifunctional space is what makes an interior lifestyle more fun! As we mentioned before, instead of seeing this as the “new normal”, we see it as a way for us to adapt and come out of it stronger than before. 

Not New Normal, New Lifestyle 

We’ve learned a lot from this pandemic through the bad and the good. But the best thing we can take from it is our newfound respect for and the privilege of our homes. Our homes give us so much to look forward to. It’s now the place we work, Zoom, educate, dance, exercise, and play in. Our newfound appreciation for our homes will be part of our lifestyles forever. 

Good Space wants you to look around your homes and make mental note of the functions each room gives you. Ask yourself if the room is doing each function to the best of its ability. If not then, we are more than ready to help you create your own hobby space, multifunctional space, She-Shed, or entertainment room. Contact us now to share what you would like to accomplish this year with your home and create the multifunctional space you’ve always dreamt of.

Good Space Year End Review: Home is the light to an interesting year.

end of 2020

Palm Springs Project

It’s time for our year-end review! We’ve finally made it to the end of 2020 and for that we are grateful. Seriously, this year has been no easy feat and we should all pat ourselves on the back for making it through. 2020 has had its fair share of challenges, surprises, and opportunities for growth. But we’ve always said when the going gets tough outside, it’s the spaces on the inside that we should look to. 

As Good Space looks back at the year we’ve had, we recognize how much we have to be grateful for. We were able to transform a record number of home spaces into comfortable and sacred ones. Dwaina moved into her new home, and Molly got engaged! This year we’ve learned that no matter how dark it may seem out there, our homes are the light we find comfort in. 

Here are our highlights of the year that have managed to make 2020 a memorable one for Good Space Plans Online. 

A record number of Good Space Plans

end of 2020

Vancouver Bungalow Project

When COVID-19 first hit in March and people were told to stay at home, we were quick to help families adapt to their smaller surroundings. Our homes became more than just places to sleep and eat, but multi-functional spaces to work, play, and keep our minds at ease. 

This year alone we were able to do 15 Good Space Plans for families to feel more comfortable in their homes. We helped create at home classrooms for kids, home offices for the parents, and living rooms that could help the entire family find comfort and escape.

Foray into Renovations

before and after year end review

Before and After West End Bathroom Renovation

This year also helped us move more into full-scale renovations. Our clients were able to stay home more and had much more time on their hands. This helped them be able to work on renovation plans they’ve always dreamt of! Good Space did over 10 renovations through our full-service option this year. We upgraded kitchens, created new bathrooms, opened up space, and even added new flooring. If you are interested in doing a full-scale renovation plan for your new home check out our plans here. 

New Good Space services available

With the number of Good Space Plans we were receiving, we adopted new interior design packages. This would help accommodate different desires people had for their space. As a result, Good Space debuted three new plans in 2020 which include: 

  • Concept and to-scale floor plans: Not sure where to start? We make it easy for you to visualize your future space with to-scale floor plans. It gives you an in-depth and accurate plan to show exactly how your space is going to look.  From there, you can use your plan and continue with Good Space and bring your project vision to life!
  • Furnishing: Need help sourcing quality and economical furnishings? We help you with the goods (furniture and accessories of a space) and create a detailed plan for you, that help to keep interior design affordable and easy to implement. Need more than just furnishings? See below for significant upgrades!
  • Renovation: This plan takes your feedback and vision and we prepare a detailed guide and model to renovate your space. We also work with our preferred contractors to help deliver full-scale renovations. 

Each plan’s price is related to its scope of work. Prices get added on to each step you take. Start your own personalized plan here.

$30,000 raised for Covenant House

year end review brave space

 

Good Space has been long-time supporters of Covenant House BC, helping to end homelessness for youth in our community. Every year we’ve participated in their annual Sleep Out to raise money for their Vancouver house. However, due to COVID-19, this year’s sleep out couldn’t be hosted in the alley behind Covenant House Vancouver. Rather it had to be in our own homes and outdoor spaces. Nevertheless, we kept the spirit of the sleep out alive with our team “Brave Space” and slept in Dwaina’s yard. 

Why did we call it “Brave Space”? Because we understand it takes incredible courage to leave situations you know are unsafe. We want to help youth enter into brave spaces even if they may feel uncertain in order to find community and safety there.

Through our sleep out and support from our family, partners, and friends, Brave Space was able to raise a whopping $30,000 this year! This will help the 104 youth who come to Covenant House Vancouver every day find family, food, shelter, community, and a brave space they deserve. 

This holiday season, youth need your help more than ever. Find out ways to support Covenant House here. 

Dwaina moved into her cozy Kits home

Moving Day for Dwaina!

The world may have slowed down during 2020, but that didn’t mean we did! Our founder and principal designer, Dwaina Sprague, was able to move into her Kitsilano cozy home this summer. With help from SOS My Space, Dwaina was able to make moving during a pandemic a breeze and even wrote a blog on how to successfully move with little stress during the summer. 

Dwaina not only moved into her new home, but she also bought her own getaway space on the beautiful Sunshine Coast! Have you ever wanted to see the intimate steps and know how to build a new home? Follow Dwaina’s Instagram and Facebook as she breaks ground on building a home from scratch on her social media this coming year. She will share new build and home decor insight so you can create your own dream home – no matter where or how big it is. 

Dwaina and Molly shared how to run a family business

molly and dwaina podcast

Last Mother’s Day, Dwaina and Molly were featured on Workin’ Moms podcast to discuss the ins and outs of being a mother and daughter team. In the episode they talked about: 

  • Maintaining a healthy personal and working relationship,
  • What kids learn from working parents,
  • And why home should be a priority. 

As a business, Good Space Plans Online puts family as their priority. We were honoured to have been invited by Gisele Forge to be on the show and share what our homes and families mean to us. Check out the podcast with Dwaina and Molly here. 

Molly got engaged and jumped out of a plane with her fiancé’s grandma! 

This year for Molly Sprague has all been about taking big, big leaps of faith. She took her first leap of faith when she got engaged to her partner Fraz! He proposed while on their favourite walking spot at Burnaby Lake. In such an uncertain year, Molly found certainty in the word yes and the happy couple is planning their nuptials for 2022 on the Sunshine Coast. 

The second leap of faith was a literal one when Molly and her fiancé’s 91-year-old grandma decided to jump out of a plane and go skydiving for the first time! No time for fear in 2020. You go, grandma!

2020 has kept us centred 

When storms seem to blow around us, our homes are the compass we can follow. Our mission this year was to give comfort and peace to families. Who may have been struggling to find balance in such uncertain times. We also have deep gratitude for our homes, families, and friends and want to extend ourselves to those less fortunate. 

No matter what else 2020 or the next year throws at us, we believe that through our home and building spaces, we can weather through anything and find peace. Happy holidays and we wish you a Happy New Year!

Now that fall is finally here, you may be looking for timely and cost-effective ways for furnishing your space. Perhaps with online interior design plans to improve and beautify your home. Does Full-Service interior design sound expensive and time-consuming? Is your space dark and not functioning well as we head into the winter season? 

If that’s the case then you will want to learn how our Online Interior Design plans can help you furnish your space. As well as address the function, surfaces, light, and goods in your space while adding savings to your bank account! 

Online Interior Design Versus Full Service Interior Design

Unlike full-service interior design, which is an ongoing hourly and percentage fee process with the designer overseeing the project once the design is completed. Online interior design plans are a set fee and are overseen by the client once the design is completed. You are able to implement your Good Space Plan Online as your time and budget allow.

Functioning well in your space while also understanding the WHY behind every piece recommended in a Good Space Plan Online is the heart of what our interior designers do. The online interior design process is achievable, affordable, and accessible. You’ll never need an interior designer to even step into your space! 

How do we furnish your place without actually being in it? We’ll quickly go over it now:

Inform 

Where we meet through an interactive online call to learn more about you, your lifestyle, your people and pets, your budget, and the vision you have for your space. Your dedicated Interior Designer reviews your submitted information through your private project portal. This is where we get to know YOU! 

Enlighten

From that initial call, we take all the information we learned from the Inform phase, bring it together, and develop a preliminary design plan for you. Then we book your Enlighten meeting. This Enlighten presentation will include; to-scale function floor plans and options for everything that will go on your floors, walls, windows & ceilings – your lighting and your goods/furnishings. 

Inspire

After you select your preferences on your Enlighten plan, your interior designer uses your selections to build your finalized Good Space Plan Online. Then it’s up to you to follow your Good Space Plan to implement and oversee the design as your time & budget allow. 

All Good Space Plans Online follow this three-step process and we highly recommend putting you and your space first. You deserve to feel GOOD in your home! And you can stay home while you do it with online interior design through Good Space. We can’t wait to meet YOU! 

Furnishing on a budget

As the leaves fall and the air gets crisp, we’re heading into autumn and a more indoor lifestyle. Therefore, let’s make our homes a place we are happy to spend our day in. We want to create your balanced living and workspace you’ve always imagined. We know firsthand how much your mood and thoughts change considerably through being in a space you love. We’ve learned from COVID-19 this year on how important space is to our emotions, mental health, physical health, and mindfulness. Let’s make your home a place you feel good in.

We understand how COVID-19 has been hard for many families this year. We may not be able to spend money like we used to, however, that doesn’t mean we can’t take care of ourselves and the spaces we live, work or play in. Online Interior Design plans with Good Space take care of you – it is a custom interior design plan, created with you and for you that you can implement yourself. 

How much does a Good Space Plan cost? They start at $1,400.00 – significantly more affordable than full-service interior design because you are paying for interior design expertise through the creative and sourcing portion. Through the design process, you become informed and empowered to be the project manager for the implementation. 

Even at a more affordable price, our commitment to quality remains high. In your Good Space Plan Online, we select new pieces for what you need, while honoring what you want to keep, and you also have a full to-scale interior design plan that leaves no specification left out. It’s the perfect deal! 

Good Space Plans Online for Your Space

Now that you know what an online interior design plan is, maybe you just need a few design inspirations to help you with your own vision. Here is some function plans Good Space Plans Online has done in the past. 

Living Rooms

Living rooms continue to be Good Space Plans Online’s most popular plan option.

Living room plans are perfect for the fall because it’s the room most used as we head inside during colder weather. 

Our clients in Surrey BC created this stunning living room all from their Good Space Plan Online, which took less than 6 months to complete and we were able to retain their existing sofa & chairs and they were struggling to make function prior to their Good Space Plan. 

Bedrooms

Bedrooms are also a popular option for a Good Space Plan. Our Surrey clients agreed it was time for a bedroom upgrade. In the pic above we changed the furniture of the space to create serenity and calmness. We sourced a new bed for our clients from Van Gogh Designs and night tables from Huppe. It’s now become a cozy sanctuary for them. If you are asking yourself if it’s time for a new bed or mattress, then this is the perfect moment to consider our Bedroom Good Space Plan Package. 

Dining Rooms

Another popular plan is our dining room plan. As mentioned before, with the holidays coming up, it’s important to create a welcoming space for you and your family.

Five Tips To Running A Family Business that Actually Work!

Five Tips To Running A Family Business that Actually Work!

Good-Space-Family-Business

When people hear that Good Space Plans Online is owned by Dwaina Sprague and Molly Sprague, a mother-daughter business, we often get asked if the dynamics actually work. We can understand the trepidation from others! Lots of family-businesses are balancing acts between professional and personal boundaries. Yet here we are, 9 years later, and still enjoying each other’s company with a business that is growing ever stronger.

The truth is there are many misconceptions to what actually happens in a family business. And if you’ve been considering partnering with a family member, then we are here to tell you it can be a very fulfilling and advantageous experience. However, be aware that issues and disagreements are bound to creep up and in order to mitigate those problems we offer five tips to maintain harmony.

And if you find these tips helpful then consider coming to our FREE event February 13, “I Came, I Saw, I Conquered” teamed with Pinkhaus, where we’ll discuss how to run a family owned business. 

The Good Space Plans Team:

Dwaina Sprague 

Dwaina-mother-family-business

Dwaina first began Good Space in 2005 after sending the last of her four children off to university. She had been operating her interior design practice, “Under One Roof Interiors” from her home and was ready to venture out into a brick and mortar studio in Gastown. In 2014, she decided to make Good Space Plans Online with the mission to connect people to a world of interior design through e-design technology that’s more approachable, accessible, collaborative and fun.

Molly Sprague

Molly-daughter-family-business

Molly joined the company after graduating from Saint Francis Xavier University in 2011. Shortly after, she left her job of working with children to work with her mother in the family biz. Since then, she and Dwaina have been nurturing Good Space Plans Online into an online interior design service that’s more approachable, accessible, collaborative and fun for homeowners.

 

Five Ways We Make Family Business Work

Molly and Dwaina are the first to admit that running a business with family is not always seamless, but they make it work by following these five business practices below. They also proudly follow the principals of progressive feminist business models, such as interdependence, embodying values, and socially conscious marketing. Their proudest accomplishment to date is their constant support of Covenant House Vancouver. 

Read on to learn the 5 key business practices Dwaina and Molly use as both business partners and family members. 

  1. 1. Trust and Communication

Dwaina explains the most important first step in working in a family business is establishing trust and communication. To do that there needs to be firm boundaries set for everyone’s success. For example, clearly defined roles of whom to report to is important. Set work hours are also crucial to make sure only work-related tasks are being completed and communicated. 

Dwaina believes non-judgmental communication can be practiced through ground rules from the start. However, she also jokes that you will mess these up enough times to see what works and what doesn’t – and that is all worth the effort.

  1. 2. Minimize Gossip and Complaints

Dwaina also highlights that she and Molly try to minimize complaining or gossiping to one another.  She acknowledges that sometimes the urge to complain can be too strong to resist, and that makes this rule always a work in progress. However, they know the discipline they are practicing adds boundaries and professionalism to their family life and business life. 

  1. 3. Find Balance

Molly says her experience working in a family business is something she’s grateful for every day. She is especially proud of the balance she and her mom have found with each other. Open communication about when to focus on work and when to enjoy family time is important for balance. She says that it is not always easy to admit your limits, but it has made their work environment feel much much more enjoyable. 

For them something as simple as jumping out of their work day to go for a walk together can establish balance in the day. Finding those moments to talk about their day-to-day events and their personal life gives them much needed family time. 

  1. 4. Be Open To Change 

Although we’ve stated defined roles as important, they don’t always work in the ways you expect. Molly says this is why it’s important to be open to change. 

There’s much wisdom to be shared when you bring in past and present lessons to inform visions of the future. Making time to discuss new concepts and recommendations allows your business to be open to new ideas. While still respecting each other’s boundaries. 

When you accept what is, it creates more space for creativity, which then translates to more productive and innovative work. This requires open communication at all times. 

  1. 5. Make Room for Fun

Molly says the best part of working in a family business is the fun she and her mom get to have together. Going to events are ways they let loose and learn something new. Finding ways to bring fun to their office is important for them too. Molly can’t deny they are big snackers. So every meeting has to have some version of a delicious snack. I mean, what doesn’t go well with hummus and a fun work environment?! 

Dwaina and Molly both love being cozy in their office, so they buy slippers for each team member working there. Lap blankets, cozy scarves, anything to be cozy is key!

When Dwaina and Molly can incorporate fun ways to connect with each other in the workspace, they really see how their working relationship shines. 

I Came I Saw I Conquered

 

Both Dwaina and Molly had their veni, vidi, vici moments when they decided to run a business together. They came together to plan their dreams of running an interior design company that puts you, the client, first. They saw the challenges that could happen from working together as a family. And they conquered those challenges through their honesty, boundaries, and having fun together. 

If you want to know more about how they make running a family business work then listen to Dwaina and Molly speak and answer questions at Pinkhaus’s I Came, I Saw, I Conquered event

They will be joined by other successful business women Desirée Dupuis and Jenifer Wright. Desirée Dupuis is the director of Ruben’s Shoes Society, a non-profit group that has sent 80,000 pairs of shoes around the world. Jenifer Wright, the General Manager of Westwood Plateau Golf, and has benefited greatly from the 10+ years of hospitality and golf industry knowledge.

How E-Design Can Save You Money and Time

Yes, E-design CAN save you money and time.

E-design-saves-money

A common question we get asked is “Why should I choose e-design?”

Well, have you ever bought a new piece of furniture, then discovered it didn’t fit in your building elevator? Have you ever brought home a new decor item, then realized it didn’t match your room at all? Have you ever spent thousands of dollars on new flooring or countertops that didn’t actually serve your needs?

The truth is, online interior design can save you a lot of time by sourcing the material for your space. It can especially also save you money by providing you with the best design options for your home AND your wallet. This is all at a fraction of the cost of full-service interior design. It’s why more and more people are choosing e-design to help make their dream home become a reality. 

But isn’t it less costly to just DIY?

You can definitely do-it-yourself if you have an eye for detail or you’re planning to add one or two new pieces to your home. For many though, choosing the right furniture, paint, carpet, etc. can be overwhelming, and without the proper guidance, a DIY approach becomes very expensive as was found by this Globe and Mail reader here.  

For those who are transitioning into a larger home or smaller home, having a new space means an opportunity to create the home YOU imagined when first buying your house or condominium. 

Interior Designers come with the skill and experience to make sure that your vision lines up with your budget. Good Space Plans packages come with a set price, meaning there won’t be any additional fees crept in. Additionally, Good Space Plans offers a money back guarantee if you choose to cancel your Good Space Plan before our first designer meeting.

The concern over cost was definitely something our clients Brian and Greg worried about when they wanted to update their cozy condo. 

“One thing that surprised us is I think we had a misconception that interior design was for the super-rich. Turns out, it was an affordable interior design option, we could fit it into our budget, and they were willing to take on a small job.” – Brian and Greg

Greg-Brian-Good-Space-Plans

They are correct!

Too many projects can linger and go unfinished without an expert hand to guide you. Above all, this guiding hand does not have a choke-hold on your creativity. Together, we collaborate on the space and you see your vision come to life.

No time to dilly-dally.

Online interior designers know how to make a plan as efficient and time effective as possible. You will save not only money with e-design but also time. 

E-design allows you to save time because you’re not worrying about the little things like what supplier will provide the best value for your buck. After getting on boarded into the Good Space Plans Online proprietary system, learning more about you and understanding the dimensions of your space, the Good Space team will address the function, surfaces, light & goods and provide you with a comprehensive Interior Design plan.  

Depending on the scope of the work, from the time you begin your first creative session with our Good Space Designers, to the final delivered design plan, our process can be as quick as 30 days. 

We Collaborate with You in the Design Process.

Our clients are creative and inspired people who put their hearts and souls into their projects. If you’re a creative type who wants to add your own flair to your space, then e-design is the perfect way to help your vision blossom. 

Our past clients Kar-Lai and Terry wanted a home that spoke to their personality and interests. Good Space Plans provided them with a questionnaire to learn more about them. 

“The only thing that we asked them to design around was my grand piano. It’s a nice brown colour, it’s a bit of an older look and my parents bought it for me when I was five. When we first saw the Good Space Plan we were blown away. We were impressed by the amount of work and effort it took to put it together” – Kar-Lai

With the help of e-design now Kar-Lai and Terry have a space that complements and features their most prized possession.  

A picture perfect home cannot compare to a home you can truly call your own. By using our e-design services you can be proud knowing you had a big part to play in designing your dream space. This is because e-design puts YOU as the focus of attention. Everything works around you first.

What makes Good Space Different from other E-Design companies?

Dwaina-Molly-Good-Space-Plans

Good Space Plan’s founders Dwaina and Molly Sprague

So you may be asking what about other e-design companies? Natt Garun of The Verge created a detailed review of some popular e-design services around the web. He explains the problem most of these companies run into is that they use trial and error to find what works in a space, which can be costly and time-consuming. Good Space Plans is not like that. 

Our designers along with the support of Dwaina and Molly created Good Space Plans knowing that technology cannot replace human touch. With Good Space Plans Online you are talking to people directly and have one-to-one meetings with your designer. They can customize the design to your space’s specifications. We are so confident in the Good Space e-design process, there is a money back guarantee for your initial deposit in the beginning Inform phase of the process. There will be no shots taken in the dark with Good Space Plans.

So now are you ready to save your money and time with E-design?

At a fraction of the price of regular interior design, Good Space Plan’s e-design saves you money. With e-design you get more say in your budget and how fast or slow you want to implement the design. This means you can pace yourself and your wallet when life tends to pop up and shift all the time.

Founder and principal designer Dwaina Sprague created Good Space in 2007 with the intention to make interior design less of a luxury service and more accessible. Since then Good Space Plans has been credited as one of North America’s leading e-design services. With e-design we provide the best value, save time, and help ideas come to life with our clients.
