You Need More Space?

What are the ‘drivers’ behind wanting to redesign your home?

I would say, space, colour and light, or that you are downright bored looking at plain walls.. This component of the design and plan phase is very important. It is the time when we look at how to use the floor space available. Remove or recycle items of furniture and play with colour and light. I say play because colour is affected by light. Therefore the colours we choose will change as the light of the day changes. Take a look at the colour palettes in All About Colour. As we work through the design process I will present concept boards with you which will also have a collection of colour and images so that you can decide what you like. I will challenge you and at times, include a colour palette that may surprise you. Colour really does feed the soul and therefore how we use it in our home can make a big difference to how you feel.

This step is where the detailed design work commences ie:

  1. Creation of the final concept board.

  2. 2D floorplan to scale with furniture.

  3. Design budget schedule.

  4. Includes two revisions.

  5. Client sign off - very important.
