I need help where do I start?
For new builds and major renovations, I like to see your plans before you start, this is useful as I can ‘walk through’ your home and look for any issues e.g., flow, furniture placement, etc. But don't worry if work is already under way, I'm happy to help at any stage of your project.
Do you offer Consulation Only service?
Yes, an in-home consultation only service is where I can give you ideas that you are able to implement yourself - make sure you have your notepad and pen at the ready! Visualise Package is a fun and informative 'walk-through' consultation service. This is for those that need guidance but are happy to implement themselves.
My Full Design Service is the best option to give you peace of mind, we'll choose a package to suit and you just leave it all to me!
How much does it cost?
I have designed my packages to cater for New Builds, Renovation Projects, Home Styling and Styling to Sell. As these packages are tailored to suit your needs, the cost depends on the amount of work you require. You can pick and choose from any of the items listed in the packages.
Is the initial consultation free?
Yes, I offer a free 20 minute phone or Skype call to have a chat about your project, this helps me get an idea of what you would like to achieve and any issues or concerns that you may have. Next is the In-Home Consultation to determine your brief and to decide on the best package/s to tailor for you.
What will happen at the In-Home Consultation?
We will go through a detailed questionnaire so I can determine the scope of work that is required. I also have a fun colour & style exercise that will help me to establish your style and personal tastes. This helps if you’re unsure of exactly what you want.
Do I need to do anything before our first meeting?
It’s helpful if you are able to have some cuttings from magazines or photos of ideas that appeal to you.
Also make sure you know your investment amount so I can help you with deciding where to spend wisely.
Do you do kitchens and bathrooms?
I will help you choose all the colours plus fittings and fixtures for your new or renovated kitchen or bathroom to ensure that it will work with your overall scheme.
