4. FLOORING PACKAGE 
Flooring is likely to take a large chunk of your budget and choosing it is far more challenging than just finding the perfect-looking product. Many other factors have to be taken into account for instance such as children, dogs, moisture, durability, noise, costs, and much more, all of this can have an immense impact on your decision. Our designers know about every type of flooring, and they will be able to guide you so you can feel confident in knowing you have made the right choice.

5. FURNITURE PLACEMENT PLAN AND FLOW
If you have ever thought that the layout of your space looks wrong and you just can't work out why it's not gelling, then this package is for you. While to some this may seem like a relatively simple exercise to accomplish, mapping out the correct placement of your furniture can be quite daunting, especially if it is already in situ. A pair of fresh qualified eyes will be able to tell you immediately. If it has not been delivered or you are moving a furniture placement plan will save you time and a lot of energy later moving heavy furniture items around. 

This package includes a 2D floor plan of your your space with your furniture added into the plan and a flow chart/map of traffic routes around your space helping you to make the most of the positioning of your furniture, ensuring there is ample space to maneuver around without colliding with the other furniture. 

What your designer will need from you;

  • Photographs of your room
  • A floor plan with measurements

Lighting is the secret weapon in any great designer's arsenal. Also known as layering, and it can transform a space at the flick of a switch. Whether it's AMBIENT lighting, (general lighting such as track or down lights), TASK lighting (under cabinet, table lamps, shaver lights) or ACCENT lighting, (picture lights, LED strip lights, effect lighting), you can rest assured your designer will create the right bespoke lighting design for your space. Once you have uploaded a rough floor plan your designer will go to work, while keeping within your budget to find you a fabulous bespoke lighting design. The lighting products can be sourced from Ikea, Wayfair or from one of our wholesale suppliers. 

Please note: our designers will not be able to produce a plan for a complete rewire in this package as this is a specialised job and will require an electrical engineer.
