Design Consultation Service
Our exterior and interior design consultancy services are a popular starting point and cater for people who are either at the very start of their house remodelling journey, or mid-way through and in need of some advice to get them back on course. Working remotely, we can offer advice nationwide, providing accessible advice to everyone who needs it.
We offer three types of consultancies:
Initial Consultation – The starting point for all our projects, during which we will discuss suitable style direction for your home, layout changes to consider (where required), what to budget for (both for design work and in construction), and the processes involved from design through to planning and beyond. You will come away with plenty of initial advice and guidance to kickstart your home remodelling project in the best possible way, as well as an understanding as to how we can assist you with this. This initial consultation is chargeable, however, if you go on to instruct us with Exterior Design and Visualisation or Design and Planning, this cost will be discounted from your fee.
House Hunting Consultation – Found a house you’d like to make an offer on or part way through the purchase process? We would be happy to discuss your new home’s potential and provide you with an experienced view on remodelling and what to expect, what style might be appropriate and potential internal layout changes. We will also discuss any planning considerations and an overview on what to budget for.
Full Design Consultation – Our most in-depth consultation, these are tailored to the individual needs of your project and the stage you’re at. Over 2-3 hours we can cover a variety of aspects in greater detail such as what style would work best for the shape of your house and how to execute it. We will review window and door design, suggest appropriate materials and suppliers to use and give advice on relevant detailing, colour schemes and how to coordinate colours. If you already have Architect’s plans, we can review these together. You can read more about our Full Design Consultation below.
