When thinking about moving our kitchen to another part of the house to create a new kitchen/ diner and changing the old kitchen into an office, I realised that there were far too many choices to be made and I did not want the risk of completing the work only to be disappointed with the outcome. I therefore looked to engage a local interior designer to create a design for the three new rooms.
I selected Nuwave Interiors after finding their web site on Google as I wanted to work with a local company. After speaking to Karen, I felt that she had some good experience and ideas for my project. We arranged to meet and I felt comfortable that Karen was someone that we could work with. She also provided a competitive price for the job.
At our meeting, Karen listened to our ideas for the scheme and discussed some of the alternatives. She then went away and prepared the design. Karen emailed the design to us and then came to visit us to present the design. Karen had prepared design boards for the scheme which contained samples of the flooring, wallpaper etc which really helps to visualise the finished project.
Throughout our work together, Karen kept in touch by email and I could always contact her to check progress and ideas. I would say that Karen is a lovely person who has a professional approach and is great to work withMr & Mrs Morris ,
When Karen came round, straight away she made me feel relaxed and at ease, I knew roughly the sort of look I was after but was not that confident it would work. I did not feel silly in the slightest about anything I said, it was like talking to a friend!
I was after a modern look with clean lines and plenty of storage, but because the room had a fire place in the middle it was difficult for me to picture how this would work. Karen came up with a fantastic idea, a design in the shape of a horseshoe for the cupboards either side so they looked symmetrical. Great colour and lighting ideas, I must say my lounge looks amazing; I am really pleased with it.
Without her advice I definitely wouldn't have gone for the same look. I purchased Besta white high gloss cupboards from IKEA, they have a designer look without the designer price tag. Next will be the kitchen and I will definitely ask Karen to come over and help with ideas, I will definitely be passing her number onto friends.Mr & Mrs Doyle ,
