FAQS

Some common questions about our services

What does an interior designer do?

An interior designer is trained to develop a scheme based on a customer’s requirements and needs (called a ‘brief’). The creativity involved in the process will assist in choosing the right colour scheme, fabrics, furniture, lighting, and accessories. The whole look should work together within the clients’ requirements as well as the historical style of the property. Interior designers are very good at organising, managing and styling a project at each stage of its development. Good communication throughout the project with the customer is essential.

Is interior design costly?

No, it can actually save both time and money by having an expert do what they are good at. Projects can start small with just window treatments and/or advice on colour schemes. Designs can also be developed over time to spread costs.

 

Is there an initial fee?

Yes. Known as a ‘design fee’ (starting at £50 for two rooms), it covers the cost to visit the prospective client.

Does any fee or price include curtain fitting?

No. A curtain fitter will quote separately from the interior designer’s quotation, and is paid separately to the interior designer.

 

Do you have decorators and other tradesman employed?

No. We have a carefully selected list of curtain fitters, decorators, and other tradesman we can happily recommend on past experience. They all quote and charge separately. We can initiate the contact and communicate your requirements, and arrange and agree a time the work is to be done. If work requires management we will charge for this accordingly.

 

How long does it take to complete a room?

Depending on what is required, this can range from a few weeks to several months. When the project consists of a colour scheme and/or a blind or a pair of curtains, then this can be achieved within a few weeks. If furniture is required this will take longer as a result of delivery times. Also, organising tradesman can take time as they are usually busy.
