Frequently Asked Questions
Can You Describe Your Design Process?
Working together with our client we will form a ‘brief’ to give the project direction and boundaries, so that we can select the right products for the job.
The ‘Concept’ ideas and options for the design solution are visually presented along with samples.
The outcome of this meeting then follows onto the ‘Development’ design stage which is a two-way conversation between the Designer and the Client. Openly communicating ideas ensures the design is reflective of the brief and is unique to the client involved. Quotations are typically provided at this stage of the project.
Within the final ‘Detail’ design stage, Swift Designs provides the information needed for a detailed room by room scheme that can be used by the sub-trades and building professionals. This information is critical to getting the job done right.
Do you do Colour Consultations?
Yes. No colour can stand alone, it goes hand-in-hand with texture and cannot be identified independently without considering the textural finish the colour hue will have. This is why Swift Designs offer a comprehensive Colour Consulting service that includes a full written specification for your painting & decorating tradesperson to follow.
Whether you want a punch of colour or a neutral timeless scheme, Swift Designs Colour Consultations will ensure your colour choices are cohesive with the home, the style and the purpose of the environment.
Will Swift Designs Use a Style that I Don't Like?
