Our Design Philosophy

Family and Their House

Berriz Design aspires to raise your standard of living through elegant styling, one-of-a-kind touches, exquisite details, and unparalleled craftsmanship. We want you to feel confident and clear about the vision you wish to achieve—and about the home you’d like to share with friends and family.

How We Bring Your Dreams to Design

To begin the process of remodeling your Northern Virginia home, we start with these three steps:

  1. We meet to discuss how you and your family want to use the new space in your home. We outline your daily activities and any special considerations that are critical to how your home functions.
  2. We explore your design tastes. Often, we make use of magazines, books and other inspirational materials to help us to get on the same page and begin to develop winning ideas. So save those clippings, websites, paint chips, and fabric samples!
  3. We begin to develop schematic drawings and floor plans. We work with you to select colors, materials and timeless accents and details. In addition to resolving your home’s functional issues, we bring your personal aesthetics to bear through thoughtful space planning and finishing decisions.

Making the Most of Your Remodeling Budget

Dreams and budgets don’t always match. Developing a wish list within your means can be the most challenging part of the creative process. At Berriz, we are experts at working with budgets of all sizes and coming up with alternatives and redirections that make the most of your investment and your home’s potential. Our job is to provide the sort of guidance and creativity that maximizes the impact of your budget without misunderstandings or hassle for you.

Quality Design: the Foundation of a Successful Remodeling Project

When you build an addition to your home, or renovate the kitchen, family room, or any other area, you want it to blend seamlessly with your existing home, while elevating the entire space to a new level of style, spaciousness, and comfort. To achieve this, you must start with flawless design. It’s our goal at Berriz to create this strong foundation and then build on it—literally—with outstanding workmanship and attention to detail.

We really love our veranda and patio fire pit, and have received compliments on these from everyone that visits us. The design is absolutely perfect for our yard and now we have a fantastic place for entertaining outdoors.
