Frequently Asked Questions
Here's some questions our previous clients have asked about interior design services in Surrey
An interior designer is a professional who works with clients to create functional and aesthetically pleasing interior spaces. Interior designers work on projects that involve designing or renovating residential, commercial, or industrial spaces, such as homes, offices, restaurants, hotels, or retail stores.
The primary role of an interior designer is to understand the client's needs and preferences and create a design that meets those needs while also being visually appealing and functional. They may work on creating layouts, selecting color schemes, choosing furniture, fabrics, lighting fixtures, and other design elements.
Interior designers typically work with architects, builders, contractors, and other professionals to ensure that the design meets safety and building regulations and that the project is completed within the given budget and timeline. They also need to have a good understanding of materials and construction techniques and be able to communicate effectively with clients and other professionals involved in the project.
An interior designer enhances interior spaces to achieve a practical and aesthetically pleasing environment for the people who use them. Whether their clients are building, renovating or doing a makeover, the interior designer will plan, research and coordinate the whole project. This includes organising the various art and accessories that complete the overall look.
An interior designer will be qualified by training and experience and have technical, analytical and creative skills, and an understanding of architectural elements.
There are several reasons why you may want to consider hiring an interior designer for your home or office project:
Design Expertise: An interior designer has the expertise and training to create a cohesive and aesthetically pleasing design that reflects your style and meets your functional needs.
Time Savings: Designing and decorating a space can be a time-consuming process. An interior designer can save you time by handling the project from start to finish, sourcing materials and furniture, and overseeing the installation process.
Budget Management: An interior designer can help you stay within your budget by providing cost estimates, negotiating with vendors, and sourcing materials at a discounted rate.
Access to Resources: Interior designers have access to resources and materials that are not available to the general public. They can source unique pieces and finishes that will make your space stand out.
Increased Property Value: A well-designed space can increase the value of your property. An interior designer can help you create a design that will appeal to potential buyers or renters and increase the resale value of your property.
Overall, hiring an interior designer can help you create a beautiful and functional space that reflects your style and meets your needs while saving you time and money in the process.

Setting and managing a budget is a critical part of any design project. You may already have a budget in mind or, if not, we can work with you to estimate the expected costs as we talk through your ideas. We agree on a budget limit with you before any work starts so you’ll always know what you’re going to pay and there won’t be any nasty surprises.
As the plan develops, some areas may overrun. If this happens, we can re-distribute budget allocations and save in other areas, such as choosing cheaper fabrics and furniture alternatives. However, we always aim to preserve quality as scrimping on the cost of soft furnishings is a false economy.
Our fees are fixed and are based on your budget and the work involved to complete your project. We provide a detailed scope of work document that clearly outlines what is covered in our fees, which is agreed before any work starts.
Yes, we can. We can instruct an architect to get your plans drawn up, apply for planning permission and deal with any obstacles, order products, deal with deliveries, employ tradespeople and schedule in and oversee their work. We can coordinate the project right from the initial planning stage through to putting the last cushion in place.
