With so many of us stuck at home, staring at the same four walls every day and noticing exactly where our homes fall short, it can be the ideal time to consider planning a project from within the confines of lockdown. Since holidays are certainly off the menu for the foreseeable, perhaps some of us have a little more disposable income lying around destined to be spent on that essential refurbishment. But, don’t interior designers need to visit your home first in order to plan your project?
In an ideal world, we always pay an initial visit to a potential client’s home in order to get a feel for the space, and following up with a separate visit to undertake a full survey, begin working on our layout options and conceptual stages. However, with the Covid-19 pandemic putting a certifiable stop to these proceedings, we have had to adapt to the rapidly changing world in which we find ourselves. Throughout the UK-wide lockdown, we have been working on new and existing projects alongside our clients, communicating via Zoom conference calls and constant communication between designers, suppliers, tradespeople and clients over email and telephone. We’ve become social distancing pros, adept at flexibility and creativity throughout this challenging time.
In fact, we’ve gone as far as to take on a major new project… in Australia! Yes, you read that right. With a couple of our previous clients having recently relocated to Melbourne, and trusting no one but Pfeiffer Design, we have been charged with creating the concept for their new family home. Sadly, we aren’t travelling to Australia right now, but are able to help even from such a great distance. The home is one of a series of architecturally pre-designed homes by Thomas Archer. A grand, modern family home finished with individual designer finishes, the entryway houses an impressive formal lounge and light well, giving the home immediate appeal and a bold first impression. Passing through the double-height space, the house features spacious living zones and full-length alfresco dining area – making it the ideal home to entertain all year round. A grand master bedroom offers hotel-like opulence and a sense of privacy and retreat. Each of the four generous bedrooms features an individual ensuite and walk-in wardrobes. Pfeiffer Design has taken on the design of the interior spaces in terms of finishes, furniture, soft furnishings and specification of accessories to really bring this beautiful home to life and inject some of our clients’ exuberant personalities into the space.
If you are considering a whole home refurbishment, kitchen/living extension or a simple single room refresh – please don’t hesitate to get in touch with our team. We are able to work remotely, without compromise, and base our designs on existing architects’ plans/estate agents’ floor plans, where required. We have the means to continue our work in as normal capacity as possible and remain in constant communication with you, the client, throughout your project.
