Free initial consultation in the comfort of your home
With over 25 years in business, I offer an approachable and professional soft furnishings and interior design service, providing anything from just one pair of curtains or a blind, right through to a full house redesign to include lighting and furniture. Perhaps you have purchased a new home, or seen one of our showhomes, and would like us to do the same (or similar) for you. Maybe you have lots of ideas of your own but don’t know where to begin?
Whether your taste is modern or traditional, minimalist or eclectic, I will work with you to develop a living space suited to you and your family’s lifestyle. You may have existing pieces that you wish me to work around – an antique rug or a big comfy sofa – and this is absolutely fine. What I won’t do is impose my own taste upon you as I want the finished room to reflect your taste and personality.
Ziboh Interiors has access to most of the well-known brands including Clarke & Clarke, Prestigious, Harlequin, Andrew Martin, Ashley Wilde, Cole & Sons, Romo, Villa Nova, Colefax and Fowler, Jane Churchill, Nina Campbell, Osborne & Little, Designers Guild, JAB, GP & J Baker and many more. With 1000s of fabrics & wallcoverings on offer, and dozens of furniture ranges to choose from, you can certainly be guaranteed a functional and enjoyable living environment that is unique to you.
I will work to any budget and can provide services ranging from a simple colour consultation to an entire property refurb with a full project management service. If your budget is tight, or you want minimal disruption, we can work room by room. I will discuss your budget openly and give you a full breakdown of how much everything will cost, right down to the last detail.
Interior Design Fees
I offer a free initial consultation in your home of 1 – 1.5 hours, within a 15 mile radius of Woking. I am happy to travel further afield for a nominal mileage charge. At this first meeting we will discuss ideas, go through your likes and dislikes, and talk through any budget that you have in mind. I will explain how my service works and take quick measurements of the relevant windows. If the project is simple and you have a very clear idea of what you are after, then I can bring a small selection of fabric and/or wallpaper books with me.
For an agreed fee I will prepare your design scheme and make a return visit to your home to present it to you. This will include fabrics, flooring, lighting, paint & wallpaper samples, as well as furniture and finishing touches such as cushions & artwork. I normally bring with me a selection of fabric and wallpaper books so you can look at alternatives if my initial scheme does not appeal.
My fees are dependent on the size and complexity of the project but generally the cost to design an individual room is as follows:
- Living room £275 + VAT
- Bedroom £225 + VAT
There is no extra charge for additional meetings for a particular room, as I want us to keep working together until we both agree on the perfect look. And depending on the cost of the project, some or all of the design fee will be refunded to you if you proceed.
Once a design has been agreed on, I will take detailed measurements of the relevant windows and living space to then go away and work on detailed breakdown of costs which you will receive in the form of a written quotation.
Fees for whole house designs, or major renovation projects on application.
Interior Design Help
If you merely want some guidance for a particular room, or require pre-sale house doctoring, I am happy to discuss designs, colours, layouts, lighting and more. The fee for this type of consultation would be £55 + VAT per hour. There will be no charge for my travel time if you are within a 15 mile radius of Woking.
I can also provide e-decor, whereby I email you a styleboard of ideas and a shopping list, which can be a fun way to shop. Or we can make visits together to showrooms and retailers. The Design Centre at Chelsea Harbour is a wonderful place to start, with many of the big-name interiors showrooms present.
I can oversee the entire project, or part of, and collaborate with other professionals and tradespeople such as architects, decorators, kitchen & bathroom companies, cabinet makers, and others on your behalf to ensure design coherence, quality and coordination with regards on-time delivery. The cost for this would be dependant on my level of involvement. If it’s just to tell a tradesperson where something is to go, then there would probably be no charge. But if it involves lengthy meetings, then an hourly rate can be agreed.
