FAQ

HOW CAN I KNOW WHAT MY TOTAL PROJECT COST WILL BE?

If you have budget you are working to it is vital this is shared at the outset so that affordable design decisions can be made. As part of the Interior Architecture package Curran Interior Design is able to obtain estimates for all building works including decorating, plumbing, landscaping etc.

 

HOW MUCH WORK IS INVOLVED ON MY END?

This depends on the project and on how much you’d like to be involved. Once the design process is complete, Curran Interior Design can continue to work on the project until its completion with your preferred contractor and have extensive project management experience to oversee all building works.  A separate Design Management quotation is available on request. This involves project managing the entire process; from external structural build to interior completion, arranging decoration, purchasing products, fixtures and fittings, together with designing and organising outdoor spaces or garden landscaping. The Design Management service provides you with a single point of contact to ensure your extension, renovation or restoration is completed on time and in budget.

 

WHAT DO YOU NEED FROM ME?

Architect plans if available, otherwise we will arrange a full site survey to obtain your brief and instruct an architect to work with.   Book here to arrange for a phone design consultation where we can discuss how to start your project.  Design consultations outside the Leicestershire area incur a minimum £100 charge.

 

WHAT DO I GET?

Your fixed project fee covers the entire design process and includes a full interior drawing package including architect plans if not already obtained, together with relevant applications for Planning and Building regulations.  A 50% payment deposit is required before work starts to ensure that you are committed to the design process.  Fixed project fees start from £995.

 

WILL YOU GIVE ME A LIST OF CONTRACTORS IN MY AREA?

We’ll be happy to assist you in finding contractors, painters, and other professionals in your area. In addition Curran Interior Design is able to provide quotations for curtains, blinds and bespoke upholstery.

WHAT IF I’M NOT HAPPY WITH MY DESIGN?

We want you to love your new space. Since interior design is a service, we cannot refund design fees once work has begun. If you are unhappy with any part of your final design, please contact us and we will do everything that we can to make it right.
