Katrina and Raley are the design team behind Katrina Porter Designs, an interior design studio located in Birmingham, Al.  As a design team we have projects that range from Kitchen and Bathroom renovation designs, large interior renovations (meaning walls are being moved, relocating plumbing, etc) and new construction. KPD encompasses all you need for what can potentially become an overwhelming process by taking our years of experience in the design world and imparting it you. We have built lasting relationships with some of the best  builders, sub-contractors, furniture makers, shop owners, artists, and work rooms and bring these relationships together to create something just for you. We at KPD strive to make your project not only beautiful, but as streamlined and time efficient as possible. We believe in approaching the design process with our clients as a collaboration. We are sure to take into account your budget and provide you with a design that meets your lifestyle and needs. We aim to make your house a home that you love for years to come. 

Where to start? We at KPD start with a 90 minute Working Consultation with you in your space. That consultation starts at $300 and this is what you can expect from it:

  • Discussion of your goals and dreams for the space

  • Your likes and dislikes of the current space

  • What functions about the space and what doesn’t

  • Brainstorming the potential for the space. This is where KPD casts vision for the space.

After the 90 minute meeting, meeting notes and a design proposal will be typed and sent to you within 1 business day of our meeting. The design proposal works as a guideline of the project that is ahead and lays out what it is to be expected for your upcoming project. Once the design proposal is reviewed, and signed, the design presentation package work begins! This is the fun part where KPD collects all of your visions and goals for the space and compiles them into a presentation for you. This presentation includes: Floor Plans, Elevations, Full product suggestions, Samples, and Concept Boards.
