Lockdown may be forcing you to assess your home at close range, and consider how to improve it…

 

We’re offering a new, contact-free, by-room design service for a fixed fee – you get a design tailored to suit you, within a quick timeframe and at an accessible price.

You will get:

  • Suggested layout plans, with elevations (side views) of key areas.
  • Outline designs for suggested joinery.
  • Suggested furnishings, fittings, colours and finishes.

You can then choose to go ahead with these changes yourself, or look to us for further help with making the changes happen.

If you’re considering changing your plan (i.e. moving walls), considering work which will need input from specialists or requiring help with projects that may require planning permission then our traditional in depth service will be more appropriate.

THE SERVICE – IN STAGES

  1. We have a virtual chat (ideally a video call, but voice call would work too) to discuss your space and what you’d like to achieve. This will take a maximum 20 mins and we’ll email you a summary of our discussions. This step is free of charge.
  2. When you decide to go ahead, you pay a deposit of 50% of the fee per room, and we send you our no-contact client toolkit including measuring pack.
  3. Once you’ve taken your measurements you can either post or virtually send photos or scans of your survey. We’ll then start designing!
  4. You can expect the completed Design Capsule from us approximately 2-3 weeks after we receive your Measuring Sheet.
  5. The Design Capsule contents are listed in ‘What you will receive’ below. We also have a range of extras to choose from, depending on your needs.

We’ll donate 10% of our fee to Shelter to help people facing housing issues because of Coronavirus

WHAT YOU WILL RECEIVE

For every room, the design capsule includes;

  • Initial call to discuss your brief.
  • 1x Layout plan and elevation per wall.
  • Outline plan for storage – including bespoke joinery where appropriate
  • Images and links to recommended furnishings & fittings.
  • Images and links to a recommended finish for flooring & wall where relevant (e.g. bathroom tiles/ wallpaper).
  • Links to recommended paint colours for ceiling, walls and woodwork (using colours from the colour charts sent to you in your toolkit).
  • Written description & explanation of the design.
  • Call to discuss feedback & next steps.

In choosing fittings, we’ll suggest mid-range furniture brands (think Loaf, Swoon, etc.) It will often be possible to find something similar in low-budget stores (Ikea, etc.) or higher-cost suppliers, so you can reduce your purchasing budget OR go for more luxury quality/ bespoke choices by looking for these options subsequently.
