What to expect when working with an interior designer

Whether you’re in need of a basement conversion, a whole house renovation, a loft conversion, or a kitchen and bathroom redesign, working with an interior designer can help you achieve the very best outcome. Creating the optimum layout and selecting the materials, colours, fittings, fabrics, and lighting are vital to a project’s success, but so too are the interior designer’s project management abilities, budgeting skills, and technical knowledge.

It’s vital to use a qualified and experienced professional to design an internal space. To ensure you only consider interior designers who have met exacting criteria, look for membership of the BIID or SBID.

Not only must members of the BIID and SBID meet the entry standards, but they must also undertake Continuing Professional Development in design process, practice, and regulation. The title of interior designer – unlike that of an architect, for example – is not a protected one, and therefore any individual could lay claim to it, but working with a BIID or SBID registered interior designer means you can be certain about an individual’s professional skills.

Why work with us?

Here at Roselind Wilson Design, we know that you have exacting taste and vision but that your time is exceedingly precious. With this in mind, we offer a highly personalised interior architectural and design service which puts your unique requirements at the heart of our offering. Every single detail is taken care of, so all you have to do is look forward to enjoying your newly refurbished home.

Luxury Interior Design & Architecture

We are inspired by a diversity of styles and have produced an array of luxurious interior architecture and interior design projects. Whatever the project, whatever the brief, we analyse the requirements, assess the scope of works, and deliver a successful and distinctive result on every occasion.

Investment – how much does an interior designer cost?

Often one of the first things we are asked about is cost. The project fee varies depending on the complexity and time frame of the project. After an initial meeting and once we have an outline of the scope of the work required, we will draw up a fee proposal based on your brief which will provide a breakdown of the guide costs associated with your project. This proposal is accompanied by a guide programme and payment schedule.

The majority of our clients opt for a fully managed service in which we coordinate every element of the project with our trademark razor-sharp attention to detail. This covers areas such as managing our trusted team of contractors, overseeing the installation of all facets of the design, and dealing with legal issues such as planning permission, licence to alter, and party wall agreements. If required, these fees will also be included in the fee proposal of guide costs.

We understand that your time is precious and that the investment you make in your property involves emotional input as well as financial outlay. Working with a professional, creative, and trusted interior design studio will help bring your ideas to life, allowing you to live in a truly beautiful and inspiring space.
