Interior Designers

Interior designers and interior architects are skilled at making beautiful, feel-good spaces for people to live and work in, using carefully chosen combinations of paint colours, patterns, fabrics, furniture and fixtures. They will help you to get the look you want first time, and if you’re not immediately sure what you want they help you find it, working with you to design your perfect home. If your space is on the small side, or awkwardly configured, an interior designer can also help you to maximise your living space, using clever tricks to make spaces seem larger or brighter and building in multi-functional furniture and design. Working closely with interior designers will ensure you get a design you love, but also allow you to pick up some of the skills, approaches and design ideas that interior designers use to create their stunning home designs. So if you are stuck for ideas, or can’t make head nor tail of how to design your living room, bedroom, or even your entire home, then find interior design companies and interior designers on Houzz that are ready to totally transform your interiors and make your life easier.

Featured Reviews for Interior Designers
Imperfect Interiors
Interior Designers
"'Beth has been absolutely amazing to work with over the last 6 months during my flat renovation and redecoration, from the start of my journey through to the end. Mood boards, advice and access to her impressive knowledge of all things interiors gave me complete faith and confidence in the works being carried out. She has proved with the right guidance that great interiors can be achievable and has made my dream flat a reality and a completely different space to live in which works perfectly for me. Beth is full of clever ideas and fantastic tips and i am grateful to her for making the decision process stress free and actually quite enjoyable."

My Bespoke Room
Interior Designers
"I recently moved to a brand new apartment from a traditional Victorian terraced house after 30 years and so I wanted something totally new and different to what I had lived with previously. My taste is not very modern at all and so I was wanting someone who could help me create a really stylish space that would still suit my tastes (quite eclectic I must add!) In addition it is a really small and compact flat and so I needed some clever thinking on how and what to use, where. I decided to try My Bespoke Room as there service felt very affordable (only £75 per room) and they agreed to come and do an on site visit for a very small additional charge. Using them meant that I could still be in control of what was ordered and my budget, as they just gave me all the tools which saved me loads of time. I was so excited to see it transform that I kept updating them and I really felt they were as excited as I was and really into the project too which was really nice! I got on really well with both of them straight away and was really impressed with what they came up with. It is such a slick an easy service and their virtual moodboard is really cool. It covered everything from paint colours, wallpaper to furniture and finishing touches, including coat hooks and an umbrella stand! This was money well spent and would highly recommend them to anyone looking for some help in designing and furnishing their homes. Well done girls!!!"

Hampstead Design Hub

"I have engaged Natalia’s expertise on several occasions, with a very positive effect on our home renovation project. A number of long term positive changes evolved through her consulting, both personally and professionally. Hampstead Design Hub gave us their full support and brought us just the results we wanted. They are realistic, insightful, reliable and an expert in her subject, all of which have brought us the results we wanted and far more. I intend to consult Natalia again with the interior design plans and don't hesitate to recommend them further!"

Emilie Fournet Interiors
Interior Designers
"Emilie was brilliant. She did a complete renovation of my Victorian terrace, upstairs and down, including kitchen extension and reviving some original features that had been stripped away. She took my (attempts at explaining) my style and turned it into an actual vision. She gave me solutions to using the space which I had been defeated by and saved me a lot of money on bad furniture decisions. The contractors Emilie brought in were great too. A friendly, hard working team I came to know and like well. Before she got to work, I basically regretted buying my house. The house had so many issues and we didn't have a lot of room in the budget, but she delivered a home I never want to leave. She is very friendly and professional, never lets you feel like you're alone. Highly recommend."
- Ben Pester
Day True Architectural Interiors
Interior Designers
"It has been an absolute joy to work alongside Day True in designing and creating our latest range; W9. With their studio based in Maida Vale, the eclectic industrial essence of the city is evident throughout the design. With such a distinctive look we are very excited to tailor this collection for Day True. We have every confidence that their future designs will be as inspirational as their previous work through the years we have worked together. For these reasons we would highly recommend Day True."

Katie Malik Interiors
Interior Designers
"Project :- Construct a garden retaining Dry Stone Wall. I worked with Katie over a 2 month period from an initial enquiry to the satisfactory completion of the project. The brief did change, including the introduction of a curve feature known as a 'Lazy S' Throughout the build period, Katie was very supportive and in regular contact with me and the client to ensure the remit was provided as required, on time and within budget. I was impressed with her determination, background knowledge, professional approach, communication skills and her eye on workmanship. During my time on site, i worked along side her team who i found to be exemplary workers, quiet in the execution of their tasks and kept the site tidy. I would have no reservations of recommending Katie to others and sincerely wish her well on future projects."
- John Holt

What’s the difference between interior designers and interior decorators?


These two closely related professions are often mistaken for the same thing, however there are some significant differences to be aware of before deciding which to hire. An interior designer, sometimes known as an interiors architect, can run full renovation and structural design projects, and will use specialised knowledge of interior architecture, construction systems and components, building regulations, materials and furnishings to arrive at your dream home design. Interior design companies are able to plan spaces and room functions down to the last detail, and can help design and renovate interiors, from initial planning phases to placing the last decorative accessory. A decorator on the other hand will typically be involved only in the aesthetic layer, the “look and feel” of a space, and won’t be able to assist in renovations that require structural work. Interior decorators normally come on board after all structural work is complete. So choose your interior designer according to the type of work you need.

Why should I hire an interior designer?


They say life is what happens while you’re busy making plans. Some of us are just too preoccupied with a career and/or family to think about colour schemes, wallpaper, flooring and lighting. A professional interior designer can save you bags of time, stress and months, if not years, of living in a half-finished home. It’s their job to stay on top of the latest trends and to have contacts and visual references coming out of their ears. Interior designers and decorators can also save you money, sourcing products via trade contacts or offering affordable alternatives to blowout iconic designs.

How do I choose the right interior designer for my home?


Good design and visual inspiration are all around us. Start by searching for interior architects and interior designers on Houzz. Keep a lookout for images of rooms and features that you really like and save them to your Ideabooks to begin to develop an understanding of your own style and taste. If you notice that photos from the same interior design companies are popping up regularly then that is a good hint that they could be your perfect design match. You can feel most confident if you hire an interior designer or interior design company that has completed work similar to the look and feel that you desire, whether that is a mix-and-match lounge oozing mid-century modern style, a pale and interesting minimalist bedroom with shots of colour, or a beautiful space inspired by Scandinavian design.

You may want to check if your designer is a member of the Society of British and International Design (SBID) or The British Institute of Interior Design (BIID). Both are a benchmark of quality and reliability. And check if your interior designers can offer you the right type of service – some companies are design only, while others can oversee the whole project. If it is the latter that you seek, make sure any sub-contractors used are fully accredited and it is clear who they are supposed to report to. If late alterations are made to the plan, the contractor should receive a change order, thus minimising the risk of a dispute about what was and wasn’t agreed to after the start date.

How important is the personality of my interior designer?


You will be working closely with your chosen interior designer or interior decorator so personality fit is key in this relationship. You should have a rapport with your chosen designer and feel that they understand your vision. Interior designers are problem solvers, and you are looking for someone who is a good collaborator that will inspire confidence and encourage you to make your own decisions. Interior decorators and designers should be sensitive to your personal tastes yet keen to help you discover new designs and take you out of your comfort zone. They should ask a lot of questions and be interested in your lifestyle, which should dictate your home environment and not vice versa.

How much does an interior designer cost?


Some interior design companies and interior decorators will charge an hourly consultancy rate, particularly if you can’t clearly define scope of the brief. Others prefer to take a percentage of the total project cost, which can vary from 10-20%. The key thing is to be very clear about your budget and your scope from the start, to ensure your designer can advise you on what is achievable. And remember, their contacts will probably save you money. A contingency fund of 10-15% is also recommended, especially if open-ended structural work is involved.

What are some of the important questions to ask interior designers or interior decorators?


  • What relevant professional interior design qualifications do you have?
  • Are you a member of BIID or SBID?
  • What will be your level of involvement in the project? Are you design-only or do you offer project management too?
  • Do you offer a free initial consultation?
  • Will I be able to see materials samples as well as illustrations and a schedule of work at the outset?
  • Have any of your previous interior design projects involved making structural alterations to an existing property?
  • Which sub-contractors do you intend to use and why? Can I see examples of their previous work?
  • How often will we be meeting to discuss progress and how many site inspections will you carry out?
  • Is your quote fixed and VAT-inclusive? What is not included?
  • What is the proposed completion date and what happens if you do not meet that?
  • Do you have professional indemnity insurance, public liability insurance and employers’ liability insurance?
  • What happens if there is a dispute regarding the designs or the quality of workmanship?

Start searching for an interior design professional in your area who can bring life to your interiors and reinvent your home for you. Look through reviews, projects and ratings to decide on the best interior designer for your taste and style.
