Frequently asked questions
There can be a lot to think about and consider when looking to decorate your home. I have put together a few questions about my services and what to expect. Please get in touch if you have any other questions.
Why hire an interior designer?
Looking to build, extend, renovate or redecorate? These are all big upheavals and can be costly, which is why it is important to invest in the design. This will save you time and money down the line, ensuring everything is in place to achieve the very best space in your home. Fully insured with professional indemnity and public liability.
How much does interior design cost?
The first initial consultation is free! 30 minutes over the phone/video call, whichever you prefer, to chat through your project and see how I can help. I offer a range of packages to suit different budgets, starting from a quick fix (mini room), running the project yourself (premium room) or I run the project for you (luxe room). These range in price and are priced per room, however a multiple discount can be offered when purchasing three rooms or more. If you are looking for something different I also offer bespoke design for your space that works for you.
Why work with me?
I have extensive interior and graphic design knowledge and training, helping customers achieve the very best of their home and space. I pride myself on customer service, working closely with you to understand your needs, your very own interior designer at the end of the phone. You will receive a personalised, friendly service, where you can feel completely at ease throughout the process. Where possible, I will also aim to pass on trade discounts to make the design process more affordable. At the end of the project you will receive a presentation with your chosen design scheme so you can feel super confident and ready to transform your space or pass onto your decorator.
Educated to degree level with upper second class (BA) Hons in Graphic Design, professional diploma in Interior Design and CHSSP certified home staging and property styling professional.
How to choose an Interior Design style?
Think about how you want your home to look. Do you want your room to fit in with the rest of the house?Perhaps you have a family heirloom, piece of art, rug or a favourite holiday destination you would like to incorporate into the design. If you are unsure what your interior design style is, collect images of homes/travel that inspire you online or in magazines. This will assist me in pulling the right look for your room or home.
Selling your home?
Looking to sell your home and want to attract potential buyers? With a beautifully presented space you could sell your property faster and/or for a higher value as photos are the first thing buyers will see. I can help maximise the space in your rooms, allowing flow and space to see the openness of your home whilst being mindful of your belongings. I offer a complimentary telephone consultation, home consultation and home styling service, working with what you already have or sourcing new items.
Do I pay everything upfront?
Your journey starts with a complimentary 30 minute consultation to discuss your project and ideas. Upon selecting a service I require a deposit upfront and the balance payable upon presentation of your room design. Any additional consultations will be charged per hour. Once your deposit is received I will send over relevant documents to complete the briefing stage. Once I have a clear brief, measurements and photos of your space, I can discuss colour options in more detail, design mood boards, floor plan, furniture layout to scale, 2D visual, 3D visual, make amends, personalised shopper list and digital presentation. I will work closely with you and your budget through each design stage, helping keep on track throughout the process.
