designQ VS designQ Shop – What’s the Difference?!

Let’s start at the beginning.

What even is designQ? 

designQ is the interior design center for Qualico Builders, and a part of the Qualico Group of Companies. 

When you buy a new home from a Qualico Edmonton builder, you will receive an interior design appointment with designQ to select your interior finishing’s .(depending on the stage of construction of your new home)

Not only does designQ service builder clients, but we also design the showhomes for those builders. Which is where the idea of designQ Shop was born. 

Now jump ahead 8 years with me.

Enter designQ Shop. 

For years we’ve had the same question get asked over and over again – where can I buy the furniture I see in your showhomes?! So we thought why don’t we offer that same furniture for people to purchase? Thus the idea was born – and now here we are!

So what is the difference between the 2? Let’s break it down below. 

When you purchase a new home through Pacesetter Homes, Sterling Homes or Streetside Developments, you automatically get an interior design appointment with designQ to select the interior finishes for your home! *

designQ Shop is open to anyone! Purchased a new home with a different builder? Live in an older home? Your Grandma really, really needs a new couch? Send them our way! 

At designQ you will select the interior finishing’s for your new home. Items such as the flooring, paint, cabinetry, plumbing, doors, railing, and so on. *

At designQ Shop you can select the interior comfort’s for your home – old or new! Items such as blinds, drapery, wall features, furnitre & decor. 

Your designQ Interior Selections appointment will always take place as far away from the possession of your home as possible. This will allow the builder lots of time to order and install the products. 

The designQ Shop appointment can happen at any time, suited to your schedule! However, we are able to coordinate the install of certain items to happen before you move in – so if you are able to get it done soon enough then go for it! 

Our entire product library is online, so you can search by the builder to see all the options they offer. You can add items to your wishlist, and then bring them with you to your appointment. 

None of the interior selection items can be purchased online, only at your design appointment. 

Most items from the Shop are available to purchase online with any major credit card. In addition you can finance your purchase through PayBright as well! You also have the option to come in to the design center for a free consultation, and purchase items at that time.

When you purchase a new home with any of the Qualico Edmonton builders, your interior design appointment is free!*

Even if you purchase a home that is already completed, all of the interior selections were selected by designers at designQ. So no matter what stage the house is at, you still get a home with designer curated selections. 

* Applicable only to homes under construction, and subject to builder’s discretion. 

An interior design consultation with designQ Shop is always complimentary, and with no obligation to buy anything! 

No matter what type of home you have, whether it’s a new build, old build, a renovation, or anything else – we would love to opportunity to help you design a beautiful space you can feel comfortable in. 

designQ is a one-stop shop! You can select everything for the interior of your home under one roof – which makes it convenient, easy and fun. Our professional interior designers work in partnership with your builder to ensure everything going into your home is accurate, and suited to your homes plans. 

However, some interior finishes may be limited to select depending on the stage of construction of your new home. 

If you have built a home with a Qualico Edmonton builder already, then we will have access to your interior selections and your job plans. Making selecting the interior comforts to coordinate with your selections quick and easy!  Our professional interior designers are also very familiar with staging by blueprints, and ensuring all furniture will fit in the intended location in your home. 

Our product library is primarily online and in the showhomes throughout the city, so there may be a bit of travel involved on your part should you wish to see a piece in person.
