Working with top interior designers in London

Turning your house into a home

A professional residential interior designer will understand your needs from the beginning. Do you want a new image for a single room? Are you planning a complete overhaul for your home? Ensuring you’re both on the same page guarantees the best quality results.

Your personal style is a top priority when redesigning your own home. Restyling a buy-to-let property, on the other hand, is an entirely different conversation. This is about creating a space to attract new homeowners. They'll want to see a blank canvas for their own ideas, but still leave with a memorable first impression.

Adding those finishing touches

Attention to detail is a skill every professional interior designer has. They’ll understand exactly what furnishings and accessories can tie a room together. The finishing touches are a very important aspect of buy-to-let properties and show-homes. They’re what help prospective buyers picture themselves in their potential new home.

Interior designers will be thorough in deciding on finishing touches. These extra flourishes can add a great deal of character to a home. A professional will think about more than just soft furnishings. They’ll consider lights, switches, handles, and taps, even skirting boards. These finishing touches give homeowners further opportunities to be creative. For example, you could add a unique twist to a classic bathtub with vintage ornate taps. Residential interior designers will have the connections required to make this happen. They can source items through a network of wholesalers, antique dealers, and designers.

Bringing your vision to life

A professional residential interior designer will have extensive project management experience. This will guarantee a project finishing on-time and within budget. You’re likely to be full of ideas about how to transform your home. A professional can refine these ideas into a cohesive vision. The designer's eye for practicality means they’ll know which of your ideas will work, and which ones won’t.

Once a professional understands exactly what you want, they can create a clear and detailed concept. Many designers will specialise in technical drawing and 3D visualisations. This might help you realise your ideas don’t translate well onto bricks and mortar. This will be frustrating but is ultimately positive. Going back to the drawing board will save valuable resources on a design you wouldn’t end up being happy with.

What is your background as an interior designer?

I started out studying fine art. At college I found myself obsessing over how to present my work in the studio. This understanding of space added an exciting new dimension, helping me settle on a career in interiors. I then proceeded to get a degree in Interior Architecture at the University of Brighton.

What advice do you usually give clients?

It’s an old cliché, but less is always more. This goes beyond style, however. It means you’re also thinking about practicality, especially if your home is on the smaller side. It’s important to remember that personal tastes can change. You could end up filling your space with things that are destined to be replaced. In comparison, an elegant and minimal home will always feel timeless.

What additional services can you offer our customers?

Customers find 3D visualisation services to be incredibly valuable. I’ve incorporated every single one of a customer’s ideas into a concept, and often we’ll realise that their original ideas could be tweaked and improved. You have no idea how much time, money and energy this saves down the line!

Firstly, it is important to have an idea of what you like and don’t like. This is a really useful starting point for what styles will work for you which will be used by the Interior Designer to formulate some suitable concepts.

There are a number of ways which will help you decide your favourite styles such as:

  • Magazines – It is a good idea to browse through interior design magazines such as Architectural Digest, House Beautiful, Galerie Magazine and Veranda.

  • Social media – Have a look at their social media platforms such as Instagram and Pinterest which will give you a good idea of their style and moreover will showcase their portfolios.

  • Local media – Take a look at their websites and see if you can find any local press coverage on any projects they have undertaken.

  • Visits – Try and visit art galleries, antique shops or fashion boutiques to get a sense of what styles you like.

Personality fit - You want to make sure there is a good personality fit with your Interior Designer. Projects can go on for months or even years.

Client involvement - Some designers prefer consulting with a client every step of the process whereas others prefer full creative control so you want to know ahead of time what to expect. As a client, you should know how you like to work and how much involvement you expect from the start.

Inspiration - If you ask questions about their favourite projects you can get a peek into how he or she navigates the creative process.

Communication - Ask detailed questions about the firm’s strengths and weaknesses which will help you determine whether or not it is the right match for your project and timeline.

Project management style - Be sure to ask your designer how they will communicate their vision in a way that you can easily digest. Some Interior Designers manage the entire process from the design phase, through the procurement phase and the final installation. Every designer handles project management differently so it is important to have a firm and clear grasp of how your designer’s process works.

Design risks – Sometimes the initial design presentation may not be what you are looking for. The key is to be open-minded, prepare yourself for some design risks and be honest with how you are feeling. The designs should speak to you as you will have to live with them.

Past clients - It is a good idea to ask about previous projects to understand how crises are dealt with and how the designer has factored in preventative measures.

Budget - It is important to talk about budgets beforehand rather than in the middle of a project which can make a world of difference in terms of avoiding unnecessary conflict. It is worth getting a few quotations from different Interior Designers before deciding on a specific style.

You should look for a degree, foundation degree or HND in relevant subjects such as architecture, fine art, furniture design, interior and spatial design, interior architecture, textile design and 3D design.

Before you choose an Interior Designer, you could ask to see examples of their work, read testimonials and view before and after pictures of rooms and homes they have designed.

You could also look at their profile page on Bark and check out reviews from past customers too as well as examples of work that they have completed. This might also help you get some ideas for the types of design you need.

Interior designers cover a number of different aspects. They prepare detailed plans for the space showing the colour scheme, materials, lighting and soft furnishings they recommend. They also provide clients with detailed drawings, mood boards and scale models if required. Some designers will create interactive digital presentations to show you their designs. They will also show you samples of the materials that they recommend for your home.

Yes, you can. An online interior designer will ask you questions about your budget and preferences, and then they will design a 'virtual' room, filling it with real furniture you can purchase - pretty neat stuff!
