Lori Manning Designs

CCIA Best Overall Design Award

We’ve recently made the decision to open a second Lori Manning Designs office in Punta Gorda, Fl.
The address will be 223 Taylor ST, Punta Gorda, FL 33950 suite 121 opening August 1st, 2018.

We are excited to announce the introduction of our new service! 3D Rendering is a highly beneficial and quickly upcoming skill that allows clients to see a visual of their homes before making a final decision on the design of their home! This is very helpful to those who have a hard time visualizing colors and layouts in their heads and will certainly help with the design process for those clients! The pictures shown are of the 3D Rendering we did for the Paul Homes Model! We offer this service at a price anywhere between $1,000-$2,000 depending on the size of the home and detail needed to be shown! We are so thrilled to be able to offer this fantastic service to our clients!

It has been such an amazing and exciting new year so far for not only myself but for Lori Manning Designs as a company! I had the pleasure of entering into the CCCIA’S 2018 Builder’s Showcase of Homes with the custom Harbour Island home by Koogler Homes and was awarded, for the second year in a row, with the Best Overall in Interior Design! I was also awarded best in the categories of livability, best overall, and interior design! I couldn’t be more honored and thankful for the opportunity to work in such beautiful homes, and am excited to see what’s yet to come in 2018!

I pride myself on listening to the clients needs and lifestyle. I want to make the home beautiful but comfortable for the clients. It needs to reflect their personal style and fit their lifestyle. I want them to enjoy every day they get to live in their own beautiful Florida sanctuary. I offer design consultation, space planning, color selections, furniture, accessories, blinds and shutters, custom window treatments and model home merchandising. I have 30 years experience, in furniture, design and window treatments. 18 of it in Florida. I serve Southwest Florida and The Woodlands Texas.

Q: Do you work with builers?
A: Yes! I do work with builders. I help their clients with their finish selections prior to building or remodeling the home. I also do Model merchandising for builders.

Q: Do you help new construction home buyers with selections?
A: Yes - choosing materials and colors is often a challenge for new Many new home buyers aren't aware of how many selections they have to make prior to construction. It is very overwhelming for most of them. I've been working with local builders for 15 years to make that process easier for both the client and the builder.

Q: is it expensive to hire a designer?
A: No it usually pays for itself in not making costly mistakes. Many times purchases made without the whole project being planned out result in something being "off" in size, color, style, etc. There are many things to consider when pulling a project together.

I have worked with Lori for the past year and it has been an absolute pleasure! She picks up every phone call that I make and if she's unavailable she will call back as soon as possible. Lori has a wealth of information about everything you possibly need to decorate you home and she knows how to put it together! She is very easy to work with and I would recommend her whole heartedly. A very satisfied customer!
