According to the 2015 Census, Houston is one of the fastest growing cities in the United States – second to New York.
This is great news for interior designers because as a city grows, project opportunities grow and the entire design community begins to flourish. People are moving in, new homes are being built and old homes are getting renovated.
The residential design business is booming, but wait – there’s more! Where are all of these people supposed to go for groceries, a haircut, clothes, doctor visits, or Froyo? Interior design for commercial spaces is just as important as interior design for your home. JPDG has had the privilege of working on some fabulous commercial projects ranging from upscale hair salons and fashion boutiques to specialty offices. As designers, it is essential to be versatile in the scope of your projects.

There are codes that must be met when designing for commercial projects such as using slip resistant flooring and flame retardant wallcoverings and fabrics. There are numerous codes and standards that must be followed to create safe environments, so it is important to work with a licensed designer when making selections and decisions.

The design concept for this project was to create an upscale “Metropolitan” style reception and conference area for a small family-owned local publishing company. The designer used soft creams, reflective finishes and sharp black detailing to create the modern, dramatic look of this space.
The spaces we designed in this office include the entry, conference room, waiting room, individual offices and restrooms. Our team of licensed designers paid special attention when selecting materials such as wallcoverings, flooring and fabrics to ensure everything met the requirements for all commercial design codes and regulations.
