“Should I renovate or start again?”

If you are renovating or building a new home, this service is recommended before you sign off on your builder or architect’s plans, so you can avoid making costly changes that may arise, when it’s too late in the construction process.

Design the perfect home to suit your lifestyle. Space planning is at the core of the interior design process and ensures the functional success of a room.

Nancy’s superior knowledge of design will create beautiful and practical solutions to achieve both the form and function of every room.

To create maximum impact we must start with these essential questions:

  • What is the main function of the room?
  • Does it need to be multi-functional?
  • How many people will be using the space and for what purposes?
  • What existing furniture do you have and would still like to use?
  • How do you want the room to feel? Open and airy, cosy and warm, peaceful?
  • How much natural light is available and what kind of lighting will be needed?
  • What are the focal points of the room and how can you make the most of them?
  • Do you need to create focal points?
  • Do you like balance and symmetry, eccentricity, or a combination of these?

Design Review Service

These services include in-person (renovation) and online (new home) options:

Building or renovating a home is a huge investment and many people find out when it’s too late that their dream home doesn’t quite suit their needs or lifestyle.

Making these changes late in the construction process can be a costly exercise.

That’s why Nancy has an independent design review service, so you can be confident your new home will be everything you imagined. Before signing off on your builder or architect’s plans, we can recommend any changes to the floor plan before building begins.

As part of our design review process, you will need to:

Email your ideas, inspiration, photos and internal plans

How it works:

  • Conduct a spatial planning exercise
  • Develop two floorplan 2D concepts – Space planning including furniture layout and walkways to maximise the space utilised in each room
  • Form – review the natural light into each room
  • Function – how the space will be used and practical recommendations for any adjustments to floor plan
