FREE INITIAL CONSULTATION We are currently offering free design and bathroom consultations in our Chewton Mendip studio.

"Come to our lovely studio space to discuss your project over a cup of tea with myself in Chewton Mendip. Our design meetings are very informal. Bring along any moodboards, pinterest boards or just images you like and we can chat about possibilities for your project. There's no obligation to purchase anything and hopefully you'll leave feeling inspired!" Deana


If Chewton Mendip is too far, we can come to you. Book a home visit for £250 which we'll then deduct from any orders placed (*terms and conditions apply).

This is very much a collaborative process. We will spend time working with you on site, listening to your ideas and gaining a full understanding of your personal tastes and requirements. We will openly offer our advice and knowledge and provide ideas for your project.

The consultation is there for you to be inspired, excited and energized so that you can move forward with confidence.

You’ll receive a follow up summary report after the visit to help you create a solid design direction that you can then implement whenever you are ready.

BATHROOM DESIGN & FULL SPECIFICATION FEE PER SPACE Following the initial consultation and upon establishing a brief for the project, scaled drawings are made and a full recommended product specification and material list is put together inline with your budget.

We’ll arrange a time to run through the plans with you and discuss in depth the design and product choices, making any amendments or tweaks where necessary until we reach a final conclusion that you are completely happy with.

Upon approval of the design and product specification you’ll receive the following information:

  • Dimensional drawings and CAD visuals, including measured plan
  • A fully itemized specification list detailing proposed products and materials required
  • Mood boards, swatches and samples (where relevant)


Upon order of goods and by placing a 50% deposit to confirm your order you will also receive installation notes for the main contractor or installer, which may include some or all of the information below:

  • Detailed notes specific to the aspects of your installation
  • Technical information on the products (if required)
  • Measured floor plans and elevations (where required)
  • Electrical notes
  • Tile layout notes

NB: Installation notes can also be commissioned separately in addition to stand-alone design services and are charged by hourly rate.

INSTALLATION Upon placing your order with us, whether you choose to work with a fitter we recommend, or your own installer, we will stay involved and liaise with you and your contractor to assist in the resolution of any problems or on-site changes that may occur. Technical information can be provided for your installer and we are on hand to offer advice and guidance throughout the installation.
