Who We Are

Based in Minneapolis, Minnesota, 612 Design provides full-service interior design with material and contractor resources for luxury home remodeling. We specialize in high-end kitchen and bathroom remodels, and whole house renovations. Led by Eric Carter, we offer On-Site Services in greater Minneapolis and Saint Paul. And our Virtual Services are available nationwide via video chat, phone and email.

What We Do

At 612 Design, we take a value-minded approach to creating luxurious and timeless spaces—with smart, functional designs and beautiful materials that offer the best bang for your buck—and that maximize your home value. Whatever your style or budget, we’ll strive to provide you with creative inspiration and insightful guidance every step of the way. Our dedicated team will thoughtfully collaborate with you throughout the entire design and material selection process to create a customized space that provides the "Wow” factor you truly desire and will love. And we have an established network of skilled contractors who are capable of ensuring every facet of construction is implemented according to your design plans—with uncompromising quality and craftsmanship.

Remodel Process

It starts with a free phone consultation. Depending on your location, we’ll then schedule an in-home visit or video chat meeting to review your remodel wish list and project details. If you accept our proposal for our On-Site Services or Virtual Services, we’ll get started with the design phase by creating 3D concept drawings of your new space. Our design team will also start shopping with you in-person (or virtually) to select all of your materials at the supplier showrooms or online. As soon as your design drawings and materials are approved and finalized, the contractors can provide bids for the construction work. Once the contractor bids are accepted, your remodel construction work can begin. And we’ll help make sure your project is organized and stress-free. Our design team will coordinate the sequence of construction work and arrange material deliveries for your remodel—from start to finish.

Project Cost and Timeline

Your remodel budget will help us recommend specific designs and materials for your project. And your home value will help us determine how much you should realistically budget for a complete, quality remodel. In other words, you’ll typically choose different designs and materials if your home value is $300,000 vs. $1,000,000+. As for the construction timeline, a complete, quality remodel by licensed contractors with the required permits could range from 6 weeks to 6 months depending on many factors, including the project size and scope, change orders, property access, labor and materials availability, inspections, weather, holidays, etc. However, the goal of the all contractors is always to complete your project in a timely manner.
