With major external alterations and work requiring council consent advice early on from an architect or architectural designer is a must.

Last but not the least is engaging an interior designer who can work with your ideas, develop them and design and coordinate the vital details of your interior environment.
The role of an interior designer is often misunderstood. It’s definitely not all about ‘cushions & curtains’. Many home owners struggle with the choice & coordination of the vast number of interior details that need to be considered.

An eye for design & functionality that looks at the project as a whole whether it’s a total rebuild from the ground up or transforming your ensuite to become your personal sanctuary of tranquillity and bliss.
