Our design consultancy fees

We charge £100.00 for two rooms. For a complete house project of more than two rooms, we charge just £250.00. All design fees are deducted from any subsequent orders totalling more than £1000.00.

 

What does the design consultancy fee include?

  • 1 x home visit by an experienced interior designer (within a 20-mile radius of our showroom; travel costs may apply for visits further afield)
  • 1 x initial meeting to develop ideas and present design scheme
  • Final meeting to confirm costs and designs if required
  • Loan of any sample books or swatches
  • Mood boards, digital floorplans and 3D visuals are available for an additional charge
  • And of course… All the practical, professional advice you could wish for!
 

What happens next?

 

Step 1. Your home consultation


We need to discover your lifestyle and get a feel for your home... It's all about your likes and dislikes and what inspires you! Your home visit is therefore an important first step. We’ll talk things through, give you some initial advice and get an idea of your budget, objectives and design aspirations.

 

Step 2. Presentation of ideas


If you’re happy with our initial ideas, the next stage is a one-to-one design consultation at one of our showrooms. We’ll will present you with a mood board showing samples of fabrics, flooring and wall coverings, plus pictures of furniture, fixtures, fittings and accessories to help bring our ideas to life. Here we can also draw on our extensive library of fabrics, paints, wallpapers and accessories to develop ideas further.

"Start with an idea or a fabric that you love and the rest will come easily. Let us use our flare for fabrics, colours and furnishings to create a room that you will fall in love with every day…"

 

Step 3. Sample loan service


We advise all of our customers to borrow our sample books so you can see how the fabrics work in your own home. We can arrange for free sample cuttings, wallpaper swatches and colour cards to be posted to you, too. Larger returnable samples are another great way of seeing the bigger picture for a small refundable deposit,

"Fabrics and colours can vary dramatically in different lights… Live with the samples while we develop and fine-tune your colour scheme."

 

Step 4. The interior design proposal


Next, we present you with a complete Interior Design Proposal which sets out in detail the designs, timescales and the goods we’re supplying. Once you’ve approved the proposal, we begin sourcing all the materials, furniture and tradesmen needed to complete your design. Because we manufacture many of our products in-house and use our own professional installers we can update you frequently as the project progresses. We also encourage our customers to visit our workroom and see their goods being made – a fascinating and enjoyable occasion for you and for our hardworking team, too!

 

Step 5. The big reveal!


This, of course, is the most exciting part of your project: the changes you’ve dreamed about finally become reality! And of course, you can depend on our wonderful team of designers and installers to deliver your project on time and within budget. Whether you’ve simply opted for a new pair of curtains or a complete home re-design, we treat each project with the same level of service and quality, always standing by our promise that we’re not completely satisfied until you are.

Now… It’s time to take it all in, relax and enjoy!
