In-Home Consultation

We work best when we see your space.  An in-home consultation ensures that we have not only the best visual of your room, but also insight into how you use the space.  We can then provide solutions that are both functional and fit for you!  

Our consultations can be for any room of your home, and any scale project.  Whether you are selecting a new Living Room sofa and chairs, updating your Dining Room, or working on a new Home Office, our designers are here to help.

You can select your own designer by viewing their profiles, or use our Designer Matchmaker to have us specially select someone for you.


In-Home consultations are a three-part process – you’ll start with an initial consultation in the showroom with your designer, talking about your project.  Designers will interview you to find out your needs and wants, budget, time frame, and style.  

Next, you’ll schedule a time for the in-home visit.  Consultations typically take between 30 minutes – 1 hour.  Our designers schedule during the day or evening hours that are convenient for you.  We’ll come to take measurements, tour adjacent rooms for color and style flow, and get a feel for your space and what will work best.  

We’ll schedule a time for you to come back into the showroom to present you with the best options, including fabrics, finishes, space plans, and price quote.  Since custom ordering has specific lead times, we’ll place the order to get things started!  Contact your local Walter E. Smithe Furniture Store to set up your design consultation today!
