PROPERTY SERVICES

Welcome to our property services; listed here are our services for commercial and residential properties. Our services come in a range of easy to understand snippets of information, to help you decide the right package for your project. Feel free to contact us to discuss further your specific requirements or to answer any questions you may have.

Private Consultations

Meetings are always a pleasure; we love meeting up to discuss the vision for your property. We normally meet either at your home or at your business premises, or if you prefer we can meet in neutral environments such as cafes or restaurants. We do charge a minimal fee for our initial design consultation; at the beginning it’s very much about learning who we are and how we can help you with your project. Follow up meetings and consultations can be arranged for further specifying of products and on-going development of 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.

Online Remote Consultations

In our modern world we understand we can’t always meet face to face. And for this reason we have embraced an online remote consultation where we can view plans, discuss ideas and quantify & liaise interior schemes via Skype and other online media communications.

A Clear Canvas

Producing an interior scheme begins with a clear canvas. Seeing the architecture and the interior provides us with a clear plan of how to utilize the existing space and potentially develop new areas. 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.

The Concept

At the start of the design process we produce quick free hand sketches which enable you to see the creative potential of the initial ideas. Later on, if requested, we may continue developing the concept using 3d visuals, generated from 3d computer software. Each way is valid and provides a great way to seeing the finished interior before moving ahead and investing into purchasing new products.

Choosing the right colour scheme

Choosing the right colour scheme makes all the difference to achieving the desired mood and ambience of each interior space. So whether you’re designing your new kitchen or simply looking to inject some bright colours we can help you create the perfect colour scheme for any interior space. We coordinate the colours of all your chosen furniture together with doors, woodwork, floors, walls and all your favourite accessories.

Architectural Plans

Reed interiors produce scaled architectural plans for each project requiring structural changes and accurate control of the planned property development. Our plans have proven invaluable over the years helping us when redesigning rooms, moving walls and creating new spaces. It is essential to have clear and easy to understand plans as a basis for planning permission and health and safety.

Sourcing & Buying

We offer a service of sourcing and buying interior items such as pieces of furniture, lighting, flooring, wall coverings and fixtures. We buy directly from suppliers 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. All items bought in carry manufacturers’ standard warranties.

Buying from Auctions

We are always visiting various auctions houses, continuously looking for interesting pieces to dress our clients’ interiors. Buying from auction houses enables us to find the most original, individual items which often works out to be much more cost effective whilst creating the perfect blend for today’s modern interiors. We are always happy to source specific items required by our clients.

Restoration

Restoring pieces to their former glory after decades of use is a specialist procedure. At Reed Interiors we work with many skilled craftsmen to undertake restoration projects.

Bespoke items

Designing unique one-off items 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 by listening & discussing your ideas. Then I take the information away and start sketching, slowly developing the item’s shape, its materials & the design process. 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 may 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. When we take on the full project management, we schedule and oversee the work of the contractors, organize orders and deliveries and make sure everything runs smoothly, on time and on budget. We also keep you in touch with the development and progress of the work. The project management service is charged at 12.5% of the overall contractors’ fee.

Payments

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.

Professional Guarantees

Our full Professional Indemnity Insurance covers each project undertaken and provides all parties with confidence. We pride ourselves in getting things right. We always make time to see things through to the end and provide professional guarantees to all our clients.
