Can I design the interior?
Although we can recommend qualified professionals, we advise you research what suits you - this involves choosing colour schemes, furniture styles, as well as how you would like the layout. Think about the sort of colour style and effects you can imagine your household, and also your likes and dislikes.
We always advise that before contacting us, you do your own research to gain a basic understanding of what your requirements may be, however if you need further help in understanding certain aspects, we can assist you.
How do I benefit from using you?
We are an independent company therefore we are not tied to one particular supplier. This benefits you as you get a vast range of designs all at a competitive price. Our interior designers can also offer advice and make recommendations on things such as furniture, styles or layouts.
What types of project do you do?
Our speciality is working on residential projects, however we have undergone numerous commercial builds. Our interior designer team work on a variety of projects from flats to bungalows, and we can help re-arrange the layout of your room for you. This can be done to make better use of the space, helping you create your perfect bedroom.
How do I know I will get an interior designer that can design to a style I like?
Our interior designer collaborates with you to find the appropriate design solutions, working with you every step of the way to meet your specific needs. They can offer their input and advice on specific aspects of the design if you would like, but their primary role is to provide support and knowledge when you are creating your new space.
How do you charge for your services?
We offer an hourly design fee and a mark-up on any product that our designer purchases - this is because a great deal of time is spent on producing purchase orders. Our designer’s time is spent on coordinating deliveries and generally ensuring that the whole process runs smoothly. The mark-up covers this entire process and assures the clients’ peace of mind as well as the fact that their needs are met.
Can I incorporate my own style into the design?
Our designers work with many unique styles we can recommend to the client. However, the client can work with the designers to create their own signature style. We are happy to assist you as a consultant so that you can use us for the entire process, or simply for consulting and advice, allowing you to make your own purchases.
