WHY HIRE

HOMES BY KATIE CARDEW?

1. MONEY

Yes, hiring an interior designer can SAVE you money!

Professional plans streamline the quoting process, ensuring competitive rates and reducing contingency costs.

Clear plans lead to smoother builds, minimising delays and costly rework. Interior designers can secure trade discounts, saving money and time on sourcing.

A professionally designed home boosts value and sale potential.

2. EXPERTISE

Renovations, whether extensive or just cosmetic, require formal plans, including but not limited to: 

  • Design concepts and developing a cohesive design plan

  • Floor plans to outline furniture/lighting placements and sizing

  • Specifications for builders inc. flooring, light fittings, bathrooms and kitchens

  • Scaled joinery plans for built in furniture/storage

  • Fabric selections, linings, headers and linings for window treatments 

  • Furniture selections and specifications

  • Paint plans for decorators

  • Lighting and electrics plan 

  • Art, rug and accessory specifications 

  • Procurement plan​​

3. TIME & STRESS

If you are short of time (and who isn’t!) and wish to decrease your stress, your interior designer will prove invaluable. From creating the designs and plans, liaising with tradespeople, sourcing the items to ordering and installing, let someone else take on that load.

4. A BEAUTIFUL & LONG LASTING HOME

Last, but certainly not least, Katie will create you a beautiful home, which functions well for you and your family, and will last for years. How many times (and we are all guilty of it at some stage) have you bought an item of furniture or a pair of curtains, not thought it through properly and regretted it? And how many times have you had the ‘choosing things fear’ and reverted to beige or cream because you don’t want to choose wrong? And not to mention the large decisions, like choosing a kitchen or sofas, which, if not properly thought through can be a seriously expensive mistake!

By passing the design work to an expert like Katie, you can lift the weight of decision making from your shoulders, safe in

the knowledge that your home will be the very best version of itself!
