Interior design - HOW WE WORK
Building or renovating a home or workspace is not something you typically do every day: unless you’re us!
At Inspiration+Co. we live and breathe interior design. We help guide you through the process to ensure you get the outcome that best suits your taste, lifestyle and budget. We have experience across the spectrum – from luxury homes filled with bespoke items, through to comfortable family homes on a budget.
We know interior design and colour intimately, and take into account all aspects of your internal and external environment.
Most importantly though, we listen – to your ideas and what you want to achieve. We’ll work with you to come up with a solution that is creative yet functional and that suits you.
In the process, you’ll save time and money. No need to spend hours trying to work out how to get what you want – we have a huge studio full of samples you to look through, or we can work with any supplier of your choice.
We’re not affiliated with any particular providers or products, but can leverage our industry experience and know-how to advise on quality suppliers, contractors and products to best suit your particular needs.
What’s more, we can arrange for samples to be provided and access competitive prices (often accessing designer discounts) on your behalf.
We’ll even take you shopping; whatever it takes to help get it right first time and feel confident about your choices!
We meet clients either at our studio or on site where we’ll talk through your plans and ideas. Afterwards, we provide you with a written specification of all colours, finishes, products, and samples.
Design services we offer include:
- Pre-design lifestyle review
If you’re designing and building a new home, you may be interested in us carrying out a ‘Lifestyle Review’ to fully define your needs and desires for your new home. This process helps provide clarity, enabling you to provide a definitive brief to your architect or builder, so they can incorporate your design requirements right from the outset.
- Spatial design review
We can carry out an independent review of your architectural plans to highlight any potential issues that may impede your needs being met – for example, layout, flow and size of rooms, wall space for art, furniture or curtains, lighting.
- Renovation, interior design and project management
We usually meet you on site, and follow this up with a scoping document which details all colours, finishes, products and building/sub-trades work. We can source competitive quotes, provide a full schedule of costs and also project manage the work if required.
- Kitchen and bathroom design
We’ll step you through the process of identifying how you use these spaces, your particular needs, and the finishes you love. We provide layouts, elevations and a finishes schedule which can be used to source quotes from joiners, ensuring that you will be able to compare ‘apples with apples’.
