Parra Design & Build will help you create a beautiful space in your home with a design tailored just for you! We will work with you on selecting the best finishes and furnishings to fit your needs and lifestyle. We'll help with the selection of counter tops, cabinets, appliances, light fixtures, paint colors, flooring and all tile selections. We'll incorporate all of your choices into planning the best possible space for your home.
In addition to helping homeowners create fabulous new spaces, Parra Design & Build invests in State College and surrounding neighborhoods by purchasing distressed or outdated homes that need some TLC. We then renovate these homes and implement our design to create a turn-key home for new homeowners while increasing value for both the property and neighborhood.
We can be the first step in planning your new space. We work with our clients to understand their goals and needs and help apply that information to a scope of work. The key to this phase is helping clients understand their design aesthetic, walking them through the research phase of educating themselves on styles and working with them to hone in on the appropriate direction of their project. We use varying tools throughout this process, whether it be organizing thoughts through Pinterest or the tried and true process of flipping through magazines.
Early on in a project many important decisions get made before a client can visualize the space or start seeing it come together. The layout of a room, the lighting design, what the millwork looks like, how the cabinetry is detailed, all these are explored in defining the interior architecture of a space. Depending on the project scope, we can team with with an architect as needed or work through all these details with you, helping form the design direction of the interior space. We achieve this through hand sketches, renderings and computer-generated drawings; whatever tool works best to aid a client in understanding the development of their project.
The world of product selection in interiors can be daunting, let alone the documenting and implementation. We guide clients through the process of selecting finishes, plumbing, lighting, hardware and more, keeping us on target with the overall design intention in addition to the clients budget. Once selections are made we create and produce the documentation needed to issue these products to our clients contractor in addition to the drawings detailing installation.
Working in conjunction with all trades and vendors on site and behind the scenes ensures a successful and seamless completion to every project. We provide administration of your construction project from beginning to completion, as well as provide turn-key services for a move-in ready home.
