The importance of hiring an interior designer

Hiring an interior designer may seem like an added expense, but it can save you money in the long run. An interior designer has the knowledge and expertise to maximise your home’s potential while staying within your budget. They can help you avoid costly mistakes, such as buying furniture that doesn’t fit or choosing the wrong colour scheme.

Moreover, an interior designer can save you time and energy by managing the entire design process. They can select furniture and decor and coordinate with contractors and suppliers. An interior designer can also provide access to exclusive resources and suppliers that are not available to the public.

The design process with an interior designer

Working with our interior designers involves several stages, including consultation, concept development, design presentation, and implementation. The first step is to schedule a consultation to discuss your vision, goals, and budget.




The interior designer will then develop a concept based on your preferences and needs. This will be presented to you in the form of sketches, mood boards, and 3D renderings. Once you approve the design, the implementation process begins. This includes selecting furniture, decor, and accessories, coordinating with suppliers and contractors, and overseeing the installation process.

During the process, our design team will keep you updated and informed, ensuring that your vision is brought to life. Our interior designers will also ensure that the project is completed on time and within budget.

How to transform a period property with an interior designer’s expertise

Transforming a period property or country home into a stylish living space requires expertise. And an interior designer who understands the unique challenges and opportunities of such properties. They can help you preserve the property’s historical features while incorporating modern elements that meet your needs and preferences.

Our designers can help you choose the right colour scheme and furniture to complement the property’s architectural style and character. We can also help you maximise the space’s potential by designing and installing bespoke furnishings. This creates functional and comfortable living areas that meet your lifestyle needs like in this Surrey home renovation.

Budget considerations when working with an interior designer

It’s important to communicate what your budget and priorities are to the designer upfront. This will help our team develop a design that meets your needs and preferences, while considering costs at every step.

We will help you prioritise your spending by identifying areas where you can save money without compromising on quality. For instance, we repurpose and breathe new life into existing fixtures and furniture. We can source affordable antiques, or design and commission bespoke furniture with our expert carpenters and joinery makers. In this Grade II listed property in Surrey  we incorporated the client’s existing furniture and artwork in the extensive renovation. This created an authentic and perfectly imperfect interior design.
