Featured Reviews for Interior Designers in Portsmouth, Hampshire
LEIVARS
Interior Designers in Portsmouth, Hampshire
"We used LEIVARS for the complete refurbishment of our family home, with extensive structural alterations the project was personally directed by the company founder Rebecca Leivars and we are in no doubt that we would not want to use anyone other than Rebecca who has shown time and time again that she is a consummate professional . We had and have complete trust in her and the company's ability to deliver on their promises, the level of commitment shown throughout a long project and all whilst we were residing at the property has left us with a beautifully designed and transformed family home which continues to get praise when we have visitors to our home. Rebecca was both patient, understanding and made it easy for us to run our business without getting bogged down by details, she completely took the strain away and dealt with all aspects of the planning, design, building management and procurement and kept us informed throughout each process. Rebecca's level of attention and commitment demonstrated throughout has left us with complete trust and confidence in her business. We would highly recommend LEIVARS as an Interior Design practice and would work with her again."

At No 19
Interior Designers in Portsmouth, Hampshire
"Val is a very down to earth ,confident and knowledgeable Interior decorator . We were invited to her showroom to discuss furnishing and room planning ideas for our new conservatory and were also able see fabric swatches which was helpful. She had such imagination that we now have a lovely dining area at one end and seating area the other with a natural 'walk through' towards the French doors . She advised us on purchase of 2 sofas in a fantastic faux suede that is very durable , and a contrasting large suede covered coffee table / stool ,and we bought these very competitively through her . She also provided cushions in a contemporary fabric which I could not have sourced myself."

Casa Vectis
Interior Designers in Portsmouth, Hampshire
"We used Casa Vectis when we moved home recently to a larger space with lots of empty rooms and bare walls. I felt like we needed a bit of advice on how to breathe some life into the space. The online service really worked for us. We could communicate by email and phone when it suited us so it worked well around our busy work and family life. Tamna was really easy to work with. I felt like she really listened to what our likes and dislikes were and she was happy to go back and forth between different design options as many times as we felt necessary. The end results were fabulous and the mood boards & item lists made the designs easy to emulate at home. Casa Vectis definitely opened our eyes to some colours and combinations that we would never have chosen but worked wonderfully together. We were both really happy with the service and the results and without a doubt would recommend Casa Vectis for your design inspirations. Personal yet professional."

Roscoe Interiors
Interior Designers in Portsmouth, Hampshire
"The first meeting at our house lasted nearly 2 hours, focusing on one room - so Barbara did her research in some detail. On the 2nd visit Barbara presented her ideas, mood boards and supplementary information. Firstly we were very impressed by the quality and quantity of the supplemental information (samples, product & finishes schedules, catalogues etc.). All these supported the two mood boards presented and gave us all the information we needed to choose and source recommended items. However, the best part of the service was Barbara's ideas and new ways of looking at things. She suggested a whole new way of arranging our living room - something we had not even previously thought of. This gave us more space, better room usage and a much better 'feel' to the room. I'd say her fresh view and ideas for our room were the most significant element - but made all the better and more substantial by all the information she provided as well. All very well presented in folders too. Two things are obvious to me now .... Firstly, Barbara is a real interior design professional, with a great eye and ideas. Secondly, she backs this up with many hours of 'homework' - giving her materials great content and authority. Thank you Barbara - we'd recommend you highly Bob & Karen Bowden"

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 Portsmouth, Hampshire interior designer according to the type of work you need.

Why should I hire an interior designer in Portsmouth, Hampshire?


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 in Portsmouth, Hampshire 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 Portsmouth, Hampshire interior designer for my home?


Good design and visual inspiration are all around us. Start by searching for interior architects and interior designers in Portsmouth, Hampshire 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 in Portsmouth, Hampshire 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 much does an interior designer in Portsmouth, Hampshire 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 Portsmouth, Hampshire 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?
