How we work with Clients

 At Tec-lifestyle our Home Interiors team are here to help realise your dream home into a everyday reality.

 

Interior Sales Team

Our sales advisers are specialists in our product ranges and here to guide you.

  Whether it be items of furniture, sofa & chairs, lighting, wallpaper & paint, cushions & throws or decorative accessories, they can advise on pricing, customising options and lead times when purchasing one off or multiple items to complete a room.

 

Interior Design Team

Accompanying our Sales team we have our Design team who provide Interior Design Services.

We offer two structured services.  We can work with you on a one room basis or we can work on multiple rooms together that form one cohesive project. Below are explanations of our services, what they include and our pricing.

OUR INTERIOR DESIGN SERVICES

When working on a room by room basis there is no charge for creating concepts and mood boards. Once the room is agreed and products purchased we can start working on another room for you if you wish.

Multiple Room Interior Service

OUR STEP BY STEP PROCESS

Inspire

The first step of any successful project has to be gathering inspiration and forming an idea of how you wish the finished result to look and function. We encourage our clients to begin their Design journey in-store to get a feel for what we are all about. Our displays really showcase what our suppliers can achieve and the looks we can create.  During your visit…If you like what you see make sure you speak to a member of staff and book your initial Interior Design appointment.

 

Another great source of inspiration are our social media accounts and completed projects where you can see some of our clients designs brought to life in their homes.

Plan

The planning stage of the journey is probably the most important. For this we arrange an in-store appointment with one of our Design specialists.  To this meeting we ask clients to bring with them the following.

 

Exact measured sizes of your space(s), including ceiling height, window & door dimensions.
A selection of photos of the space(s) you are looking to design …. the more the better!

 

Our Interior Designer will start by taking a brief, we want to understand how you use your space and how it relates to the rest of your home.  We will discuss your requirements and items you wish to include covering furniture, seating,  lighting, wallpaper & paint, curtains and blinds, decorative accessories and desired colour schemes.  We then spend some time looking at our product ranges together within our showrooms and create a wish list.  Budget will be discussed along with timings for the project.  We encourage you to be as honest and imaginative as you like.  Bring images, magazine cuttings, material and colour samples if you wish, this is your dream home and we want to make it perfect for you.

 

As part of the planning stage for those using the multiple room Design service we will arrange a visit your home to see the space and take accurate measurements.  If your home or extension is currently being built we are also more than happy to work off of scaled architects plans.

Design & Present

Working from the brief taken in the planning appointment, our Designer now gets to work creating layouts and bringing your new scheme(s) to life through vision boards and sample trays.

Once our Designer has completed your concepts and quoted your project, you will be invited back into store for a second appointment where you will be presented with the vision boards, layouts and shown swatch colour & finishes of all the elements.

 

This is a collaborative appointment where tweak’s to the designs can be made and an opportunity for you to finalise any outstanding choices to complete your new scheme.

Create

Once you are happy with the finalised designs, product specification and final costings it is time to place your order and pay a deposit to secure your new interior scheme.

 

You then can relax and let us and our brand partners get to work creating, supplying and collating every element of your new interior scheme ready for delivery and installation.

Install

At Tec-Lifestyle we offer tailored installation services based upon our clients requirements.  All installation quotes are individual and are priced in accordance with the complexity and scale of the project and level of works required.

 

We are proud to also offer a full ‘turn-key’ solution for those who want a stress free fully transformed finished home that has been styled and ready to be enjoyed and loved for years to come.
