Our initial meeting and briefing allows us to get to know the client, and for us to evaluate their requirements, likes and dislikes, all of which is vital in building a trusting relationship where we understand what they are trying to create.
The design process is divided into 5 stages: Preliminary Phase, Concept Design, Design and Development, Construction, Furniture, Fittings and Equipment (FF&E) and finally the Dressing of the Room.
Following the initial meeting we require another site visit to take measurements. photographs for reference and to discuss, develop and agree the brief and the furnishing requirements, which is then proceeded by the appointment of works.
We will supply the client with a written design brief that must be agreed by both parties before any work commences.
This will guarantee the smooth running of the project with our pre-design research and assessment.
At this stage the furniture layouts and design ideas are presented and cost options discussed with the clients.
Once the above is agreed we then move onto stage 3.
Digital moodboards and colour schemes are explored showing different range of fabrics, lighting and furniture, product samples such as paint colours, wall coverings, flooring, fabrics and sample mood boards (if required) are provided for consideration.This stage allows for design refinements and developments following the client's feedback.
At this point is where a 3D drawing could be commissioned and agreement to brief technical drawings are made.
We brief and liaise with the building team, project manager or decorators, supplying a detailed specification for each room, supported by a few more site visits.This is the building works phase and where all furnishings and material orders are placed.
We ensure that all the ordering of fabrics, paints, tiles, flooring and furnishings etc. are made and that their delivery dates are convenient to our clients or builders.
All materials are supplied at competitive prices.
The final stage is the supply of furniture, fixtures and equipment. This is the exciting stage where the property finally comes to life and where we dress the property and transform it into a home.
