Our Cheshire based in-house Interior Designers work with your requirements to restyle or re-plan your space for you. We source products on your behalf, project manage the refurbishment or re-styling or you can simply commission a design scheme to carry out yourself. The flexibility in the level of our involvement is for you to choose.
We believe it is important to meet with clients before they commit to our services, so we offer a free initial consultation with no obligation. An essential part of our initial consultation is to view your chosen space, discuss your requirements and budget, make initial suggestions and assess which of our services would benefit your commission. Your requirements may be a simple redecoration, where our professional decorating service would be engaged, a re-styling or a complete full interior design package. The choice is yours...
One of our Interior Designers will visit you at your home or commercial property to discuss your requirements along with the look and feel you want to achieve. An assessment of requirements will be taken, photographs and sketches may also be taken at this stage and we welcome questions about our services. Following the consultation we will send you an estimate detailing the work we propose to undertake.
Our re-styling service is for clients where utilisation of existing furnishings is required. This is a cost effective way of giving a tired room a fresh new look.
The final design meeting is to provide you with a mood board presenting the design along with details of the proposed design and budget costs.
On engagement of our design scheme service, one of our Interior Designers will commence a preliminary design concept. A second site meeting will be carried out where we will present the proposed design, colour scheme, furnishings and materials etc for discussion, the aim of which is to further establish your specific requirements and budget. Once the concept is approved we will commence the detailed design for your approval.
The final design meeting is to provide you with a detailed final design. A mood board will be presented with samples of fabrics, flooring, wall coverings along with details of all proposed furniture and fixtures and/or fittings and accessories for approval.
