With our in-store design service, you can meet with one of our designers to go over all of your samples, pictures, and measurements of your space right here at UBU. Your designer will then develop a customized plan just for you!
During a follow-up visit to the store your designer will be able to show you the plan for your new space. At that time you can place an initial order for the pieces you’d like to get started with to make your dream home a reality!
