Modern Interior Design Schemes

DESIGN SERVICES

Welcome to our Interior Design Services, outlining our specialist creative services. The services come in a range of easy to understand straightforward bits of information aimed at providing a clear advice for creating your perfect business or home interior.

Initial Meeting

Meetings are always a pleasure. We normally meet either in your home or at your business premises. We don’t charge for the initial meeting; it’s very much about learning who we are and how we can develop our relationship, build trust in our skills and get a clear idea about the project. Follow up meetings and consultations can be arranged for further specifying of products and going through the plans and ideas. Any appointments after the initial consultation are charged per hour depending on the complexity and the size of the project undertaken. All charges for consultations are subject to VAT.

A Clear Canvas

Producing an interior scheme begins with a clear canvas. Seeing the architecture and the interior provides me with a clear plan as to how we can work with the existing space. Utilizing the existing space and developing new areas is very much a design skill and seeing the vision makes for good design. I personally talk my way around room by room identifying how we can engage with each specific area, quantifying the ideas as we go. Sometimes I might start sketching a few initial concepts or communicate my aspirations using existing projects as examples.

The Concept

Visualizing the concept is something I have developed over many years and normally comes from me being inspired. I see the pictures in my head and release them as I see them. The images can then be processed and quantified until resolved. It’s very much a personal creative experience aimed at getting the inspirational juices running and flowing.

Moving Ahead

Moving ahead with the ideas and not standing still is essential. That’s where we can all start to see the day to day changes as the interior scheme grows and begins to bloom. I don’t sit still for very long and I am always on the move. My job is to make things happen and seeing the project jump into life makes me happy..

Buying in items

We offer a well developed service of buying interior items such as furniture, lighting, flooring, wall coverings and fixtures. We have trade accounts with some of the best retailers and manufacturers providing you with the best possible prices at all times. Items can be either delivered to our offices or on site depending on the size and quantity. Items bought in are subject to VAT and carry manufacturer’s standard warranties.

Bespoke items

Designing items which are unique plays a large part in what we do. Being a qualified engineer & furniture designer has enabled me to design some quite extraordinary things over the years. You would be surprised what clients like to have within their interior as a design statement! I start either by discussing my ideas or listening to yours. Then I take the information away and start sketching, slowly developing the item’s shape, its materials & how we can make it. I say to people there is nothing I can’t design or make, everything is possible..

This service is charged at £60 per hour and is quantified by time spent producing the ideas and resolving them to completion, depending upon their complexity. Once the item has been designed we engage with other companies in order to have the item/ items produced. This might involve 3D printing, plastic moulding, alloy castings, metal fabrication, glass and a combination of textures and material science.

Managing the Project

Being a good project manager takes a lot of time and effort. I normally like to run my own affairs and have a detailed understanding of what’s happening day to day. If the project is close enough I am happy to oversee the work and make sure everything runs smoothly with positive progress each day. Once the project is under way you can always invite me to come over and snag room by room & I can point out any issues that I see. The project management service is charged at 12.5% of the overall contractors’ fee.

Payments

All payments are subject to VAT. We produce detailed invoices for all our products and services. Payments should be made in good time and cleared within our accounts before any purchases are made. All payments need to be cleared within a time period of two weeks.

Guarantees

As professionals we pride ourselves in getting things right. We always make time to see things through to the end and make personal guarantees to all our clients who invest in us and our creative talent.
