Stages of Design

Each project is different from the next and some projects require more stages than others, dependant on the client’s brief. Below is an outline of the general stages:


Stage 1. Initial Meeting


Lauren will meet you at the project premises for a no obligation discussion. At this visit the client brief and budget will be established and Lauren will outline the services available. After this initial meeting, a written scope of works proposal will be sent, outlining the agreed timescales, budgets and services.


Stage 2. Spatial Design


Scaled floor plans will be produced (if not already available) with suggested space planning (interior architecture) and furniture placement. Mood boards with colour palettes are created with concept images to convey the overall design. This is presented along with a detailed schedule itemising breakdown costs.

At this stage, photo realistic images can be computer generated to offer our clients a true insight to the newly designed space.


Stage 3. Finalising the design (project dependant)


Detailed specification of the interior architecture is progressed with lighting and electrical plans, detailed joinery and final finishes and fixtures.


Stage 4. Procurement


Lauren works with a selection of specialist suppliers, offering the best interior furniture and fittings for our client’s budget.


Stage 5. Installation


We will project manage the installation of all deliveries and ensure that every item arrives as it should in perfect condition and on time. We can then dress your property with agreed accessories, to offer the perfect turn key service.
