Coral Interiors
Interior Designers in Southampton, Hampshire
"Helen of Coral Interiors was recommended by a friend, who knew we had an ultra modern house which was furnished but was not selling. Partly because it was a 'house' rather than a 'home', and needing finishing touches. So we met and subsequently retained Helen to 'dress' it; and, boy, what a difference its made! We decided to be led entirely by Helen rather than have a say in all of it, and that was the best decision. Within a couple of weeks, Helen had planned, sourced, bought and dressed our house, making it a beautiful and appealing home. We're thrilled, and can't recommend her highly enough. Helen stuck to our budget, listened and carried out her work and we cannot fault it! Thank you to Helen, and hope this helps encourage others to put their faith in you."

Willow Grey Interiors
Interior Designers in Southampton, Hampshire
"Caroline has been such a great inspiration to us with getting us to think carefully about what we want from our house interior! She has come up with a beautiful colour scheme and has great ideas and vision on how to throw some colour in too. Very professional and friendly with excellent customer service. With the added bonus that she can upholster cushions and blinds too and keen to upcycle existing items that we already have! Would highly recommend "

Emma Painter Interiors
Interior Designers in Southampton, Hampshire
"A very difficult small cloakroom. Emma provided some wonderful ideas and solutions that we had not thought about! Budgets and deadlines were met - the contract administration was very efficient, with so many tradesmen to co-ordinate for such a small space."

As a local agent and developer I have had several companies working for me over the years and I have to say that Katy outshines them all for both value and also keeping up with modern trends. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!"

Interior Designers in Southampton, 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."

Laura Porter Interior Design
Interior Designers in Southampton, Hampshire
"We instructed Laura for the design of our Lounge after being impressed with the initial consultation that Laura gave; Laura really took on board what we were looking for - a functional living room in an Edwardian setting. Once the design was completed, Laura arranged a presentation for us to go through the overall design and the products that she had sourced for the room. We could not have been happier with the design or the furnishings sourced, and used everything that she recommended. Whilst we might have been able to choose a paint colour ourselves, it's highly unlikely that we could have come up with the fixtures, fittings and wonderful furnishings that actually make the lounge amazing. My husband remarked that Laura's fee was the best amount of money we could have spent on the decoration of our home. We would not hesitate to recommend Laura and her amazing designs which are totally in keeping with the clients requirements, and have in fact arranged for Laura to design our dining room and hall, stairs and landing.."

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

Why should I hire an interior designer in Southampton, 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 Southampton, 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 Southampton, 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 Southampton, 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 Southampton, 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 Southampton, 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 Southampton, 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?
