Interior Design Services
Our design solutions are tailored to your specific requirements, offering a highly bespoke service to provide the best solution for you.
We create considered, high quality, robust interiors to meet the complex demands of care environments.
Where to Start?
Building a new care home or refurbishing an existing home is an exciting but complex undertaking.
The interior design is a key element to a successful project and the integration of the design process into the main build programme is essential to ensure a seamless and considered finish which meets your aspirations. There are so many elements to consider and decisions to make, which can have knock-on effects to other parts of the build, the programme and the budget.
Often the design process will require the input of a number of different people within your organisation and it can be difficult to know when and how to manage this input. This is where we come in. Whatever stage your project is at, we put together a programme for the interior design process which ties in with your contractor’s critical programme dates, to ensure they have the information they need to keep the build running smoothly.
We like to be involved in a project as early as possible as we can often add value, working in conjunction with your Architect, at the building space planning stage to lay out spaces with realistic furniture arrangements to suit how you will use the space and including the circulation routes you would need. However we can join the team at any stage and get involved as much or as little as you require to suit the stage of the project and your budget.

If you would like to discuss how we can work with you and your Consultant Team at any stage of a project don’t hesitate to contact us.
The Design Process
From our initial, in depth meetings with you and your team, we develop a robust brief and schedule of requirements to work to, setting out your aspirations and encapsulating all your ideas, operational prerequisites and material requirements for the project.
We then agree a time-frame for the design stages to tie in with the build programme, including dates for presentation of the full design schemes, which can be carried out in stages if required to meet the contractor’s need for information.
The presentations will include image and sample boards showing every item or material being used on the project and will act as a full record of the design.
With our design experience and robust briefing methods we are confident that you will be delighted with the design schemes we create for your home, however we are happy to provide alternatives should you not be completely happy.
When you are entirely happy with all the design elements of the project, we produce a full, clear and robust package of information for issue to your contractors and suppliers.
The process of designing interiors for a care home is exciting and inspiring but also complex and time consuming, so we manage the whole process to provide you with the best experience.
The Finished Project
Throughout the build process we are on hand to respond to any queries with regard to the issued information and to quickly resolve any design decisions that inevitably crop up on site.
We can provide a full, on-site design management service, attending site and Design Team meetings and carrying out snagging inspections to ensure the design is being implemented correctly.
We are able to offer a full furnishings fitout service for the furniture, soft furnishings, artwork and accessories required for your home, including providing the essential finishing touches which are so crucial to turning the finished environment into a ‘lived-in’ space.
We strive to continually improve the services we provide, requesting feedback from our clients and carrying out internal post project reviews to ensure that we are always offering our clients the best service possible.
