How can we help?
Good interior design must be functional, beautiful, attainable, and will simplify one’s life in order to be successful. Whether you require a new design concept for an entire project, modernise your kitchen/ bathroom design for an upcoming renovation or help to execute a new scheme to refresh a space, we offer custom design packages which are tailored to our client's needs and budget.
It can often be difficult picking the right colours and finishes to suit your home with Concept DCF you can rest assured the outcome will be exactly as you imagined. We can help you refine any options you may be considering, find complementary pieces for your existing scheme and furnishings or work with you to create a new and exciting area of your home. With an option of fixed price/ hourly rates, you control how much you want to spend on your consultation.
Property styling is essential to maximise your property's potential. If executed correctly it’s known to streamline the marketing process, increase buyer interest and ultimately promote the best outcome for your investment. Concept DCF provides tailored styling packages with selected furniture, artwork and accessories on a rental arrangement to suit your property and marketing campaign. Our stylists are able to identify your property's best-suited target market and draw on their design background to deliver a property dressed to stand out from the rest.
In order to cover all aspects of your external facades and spaces, we believe the ideal design team consists of both an architect and an interior designer. On your next residential/ development project let our interior designers draw on their experience and expertise to create an innovative exterior, which not only complements the founding design of your building but sets the correct scheme to flow into your interiors.
Are you after custom joinery? Its all in the detail.. we design custom joinery, specify every component and can arrange quotations for manufacture and installation, so the entire process is covered. If you wish we can oversee the project or simply hand over the plans for you to follow up with your preferred joiner. What's really important is that clients love their design and experience a stress-free build for their kitchen and/or bathroom renovation.
Colour is a very important element of interior design, it has the power to transform a space and manipulate the confines of a room all by itself. When successfully choosing the correct colours for a space it is essential to have an idea in advance of what you are trying to achieve. Experimenting with colour is exciting, although it can be extremely complex and requires confidence to achieve a successful outcome. If you’re unsure a quick consultation with one of our interior designers will ensure the best outcome and put your mind at ease.
