[ r a u m ] interiors offers a natural progression from our architectural services as well as a completely independent Interior Design service focussing on bespoke solutions for your home or business.
We deal primarily with creating individual and interesting spaces within the residential and commercial sector.
At [ r a u m ] interiors we believe that the space you spend time in, be it at work or at home, should reflect you, your life and your personality. It should suit your everyday needs and it should be individual, complete and well thought out.
As designers we offer specialist knowledge and experience to provide a service that not only meets but exceeds your needs; we love getting involved with creating something unique and enjoy the process of finding solutions to challenging spaces.
Whether you want to update one room or require a complete design scheme for the whole house we are here to offer inspirational practical advice.
We are always happy to visit your home to discuss your project, please contact us to arrange a free initial consultation.
SERVICES AND FEES
An important part of our assessment is to view the space, discuss your requirements and budget, make initial suggestions and assess how much involvement you need from us. This initial consultation will usually take place at the project property.
The consultation is your opportunity to show us the space, present us with your ideas and ask us any questions you have about how we work. The consultation generally lasts 90 minutes, during which time we discuss your interior needs in greater detail and generally get a better feel for the area you want re-designed.
At this stage, if required, we would also take photographs of the space in question. Following the meeting, we will send you a detailed proposal for the work we propose to undertake.
Once appointed the next stage involves us making site visits as necessary to establish the detail of your requirements, presenting design suggestions and samples as appropriate, and drawing up floor-plans and layouts. How long all this takes varies according to the complexity of your particular project and modifications which you ask us to make along the way.
Together with the final drawings, we’ll present you with a detailed sample board and a list of key items of furniture, fabrics, fittings (such as lighting) and accessories.
Once you have approved the scheme, we can prepare detailed specifications for the works to be undertaken by craftsmen and contractors. You can choose whether to hire and supervise contractors yourself, or to use our services.
Fee: Fixed fee for our research time and interior design ideas based on an hourly rate of £40
A 50% deposit for our design fee is payable upon engagement with the remainder payable upon delivery of sample boards and design specifications.
[ r a u m ] interiors, if commissioned, will work on your behalf to see the project through from start to finish. We will produce competitive costings & negotiate trade discounts. We will appoint contractors, source suppliers, organise the work/installation, hold regular site meetings with the contractors, co-ordinate hand-over including the resolution of any snagging issues and organise a 3 months defects meeting.
Fee: charged at around 10% of the overall project cost.
Invoices in respect of the project co-ordination/ management fee are charged in line with payments to contractors/ suppliers or at intervals throughout the duration of the project. Clients will be invoiced directly by each contractor, ensuring those all-important guarantees.
