This interactive seminar, will explain the importance of a Home Design Consultation
With the help of Before & After Design examples and the opportunity to ask questions about any aspect of the presentation, it will emphasise how important it is for anyone considering refurbishing their home or adding an extension to get professional unbiased advice before they start.
An important question that everyone should ask !!
Are you improving the overall quality of your home and not just solving an immediate problem, all changes will have an impact on your home!!!
It is essential to consider all the effects the changes might have and avoid backtracking at a later stage.
Design advice must come from a reliable and professional source
It should not come from pressure of builders, contractors or costs restraints,
Better to phase the work over a period of time with a master plan that allows you the time and peace of mind to plan your refurbishment to suit your current requirements and budget, while keeping an eye on your future needs.
A Home Consultation with your “Wish List” can offer solutions that you never dreamt of and avoid the dangerous instant quick-fix solution
