LOVE TO DO IT YOURSELF? HATE IT? TRANSFORM YOUR HOME WITH AN INTERIOR DESIGN PACKAGE TO SUIT YOU

Step back and let someone take the lead? Or take the reins and deliver on that design yourself? At Sandra Carmichael Interiors in Haywards Heath, we can provide a design package that reflects who you are, what your budget is and how involved you want to be in that project. And even if you’re not sure, we offer a FREE 30-minute project scoping consultation where the details can be ironed out.

FULL DESIGN SERVICE
- WHOLE HOME OR INDIVIDUAL ROOMS

This service includes full project coordination and you can be involved as much or as little as you'd like to be. 

This service includes a meeting at the property to understand the scope of the project. We discuss how you and your family spend time in the property and how you want the design to look and feel. We will discuss budget at this stage of the process. A fee proposal will follow.

PROJECT BRIEFING

This is the stage of the process where we agree the scope of work, spatial requirements, stylistic preferences, approximate budget and timescales. This involves a site visit and a meet and greet.  

DESIGN CONCEPT

This stage of the process is where we confirm the designs. Accurate measurements will be taken, electrical and plumbing details noted to assist with CAD drawings and space planning. We will research creative solutions and schemes for each space and prepare outline design proposals. You will be briefed with layout plans, image boards, samples of materials, furniture, lighting, renders and sketches. You will receive digital copies for your reference. This includes 3 iterations.

DESIGN DEVELOPMENT

All agreed design concepts are finalised and put into a format for the purpose of securing tradespeople. These include structural design changes, elevation drawings, lighting plans and schedule of work lists. At this stage of the process, FF&E schedules will also be produced as well as a finalised list of items that will need to be procured.

SOURCING & PROCUREMENT

Our procurement process is fully transparent. We have an ever-growing list of reliable and creative suppliers.

CONSTRUCTION PROJECT MANAGEMENT

We can recommend trusted builders or assist with builders you’ve sourced. We can assist with obtaining quotes and talk through all the design details with the builders on site and supply them with technical drawings to assist with building quotes. We will visit the site regularly to ensure quality progress.

DESIGN MANAGEMENT

Despite you paying for the building services directly, we will manage the design concept during the building work to ensure quality control and project coordination.

STYLING

The styling stage. Incorporating finishing touches and accessories is an essential stage to ensure the project is completed to perfection. A photographer will take pictures of the project for our portfolio. These photographs will be passed onto you as a thank you gift, perfect for showing your new space to your friends and family.

"Sandra was incredibly patient and sought to really understand our needs whilst still gently pushing us away from "boring!" She has a lovely manner about her and is able to understand overseas clients as well as local and global providers to ensure the most suitable design as well as the best value for money.  I would not hesitate to recommend Sandra as an Interior Designer to others, and actually have done already."
