What Exactly Happens In A Design Consultation?
Step 1: Brief Us On Your Style Vision For Your Home.
Show us your pinterest boards, photos of homes you love, ideas from local residential listings. Tell us all about the transformation you want, be that extensions, windows, doors or open the scope and let us suggest things you may never have thought of.
Step 2: Tell Us About The Space You Want.
How does your family use the rooms we will be looking at? Even with a simple window replacement we want to know if you need more privacy in that room, safety catches for small people, easy open handles for people with limited dexterity? Who uses that space and what do they need from it?
Once we understand your vision we can;
We Consider Solar Hacking.
We use our expertise and experience to look at how light moves around your home during the day and how that affects your rooms. We want to consider solar gain (where your house heats up too much), heat loss, glare from the sun and how practical things like glass with internal blinds could make all the difference to how much you love that room.
We Think About Smart Security Planning
Different aspects of the home benefit form different safety features. It might be as simple as toughened glass in the windows near the children’s play area to stop the football smashing through the glass. Or more subtle considerations such as Ultion locks on the rear doors in combination with triple glazing for the back door.
Draw Up Recommendations Perfect For You
Homes are as unique as the families that live in them. Once we have all your dreams and visions down we can get to work recommending the products that suit you best. We can showcase the options that are absolutely non-negotiable and those that might be things you’d consider if the price was right. While we’re on the subject of price, we will also fully cost the project for you too so you can feed that into your budget calculations.
Who Is The Design Consultation For?
It’s for you if;
- You’re fast running out of space for your growing family and are considering a conservatory, extension, or porch.
