Whole Home Considerations

Creating Harmony and Flow Throughout a Whole Home

We know that designing a whole home can be a daunting task; you want your spaces to feel considered, have harmony and flow, but for each room to still maintain its own personality specific to its function. And with all the challenges that an existing property can bring, it’s a minefield out there trying to navigate everything from building regulations to structural restrictions, and all while trying to create a complete design scheme. At Pfeiffer Design, we work with you and your architect/contractors to find creative solutions to any design constraints the property may offer. Here’s some of the factors to consider:


At Pfeiffer Design, we offer a holistic approach to whole home interior design, focused on ensuring a complete scheme is created for the entire property. Taking a detailed brief from you, we consider colours, textures and styles which form the basis of the homes new design, and create a detailed concept which encompasses each room individually, as well as a comprehensive scheme for the home as a whole.

Even for our clients looking to phase building works in order to mitigate disruptions to their daily lives, we would still encourage them to conceptualise the whole home initially to ensure a considered and fully encompassed design is achieved.


Before starting a whole home interior design project, it’s crucial to consider any constraints that may affect the potential design of the property. If your property is listed or has other restrictions in place, it’s important to work with a design team that has experience navigating these complexities. At Pfeiffer Design, our expert team has had extensive involvement in working with listed properties and understanding the constraints that come with them. We know how to approach these projects creatively and work within any limitations to achieve a stunning design that complements the property’s unique features and history.


Effective space allocation and resource planning are essential components of whole home interior design. At Pfeiffer Design, we prioritise these factors to optimise the existing space and create a functional and beautiful interior. This involves considering every aspect of the space, inclusive of the placement of walls, staircases, doors, and openings, as well as fixed elements such as plumbing, wiring, and structural positions. Our concept and layout process is conducted in tandem, and we always take a thorough brief from our client to ensure we fully understand their needs and preferences for the spatial elements of the home.


The most underrated aspect of any interior design scheme, the perfect lighting concept can completely transform your space, tailoring the homes functionality to precisely what you need, when you need it. At Pfeiffer Design, our lighting specialists thoughtfully design layered schemes that incorporate a variety of lighting types, resulting in a cohesive and harmonious scheme across the whole house. From task to accent to ambient lighting, we place emphasis on designing for functionality, flexibility, and energy efficiency. By carefully considering the lighting design in every space, we create a home that feels welcoming, comfortable, and truly tailored to the needs of its inhabitants. Depending on the functionality of your home and how you see yourself using it, we can also specify lighting and electrical control systems for your home. We have a range of both retrofittable and hard wired options for existing and new-build homes to upgrade and bring your home into the smart era.

The Next Stage

Design to Make Your Home Truly Special

At Pfeiffer Design, we offer a full design service which encompasses our broad selection of bespoke packages. From furniture to lighting, fabrics to joinery spaces, we have solutions for any design needs.


We craft one-of-a-kind upholstered furniture locally in the South of England. Our bespoke pieces are designed with our clients’ exact requirements in mind, and with an unlimited choice of fabric from our library. From dining chairs and bar stools, to sofas, armchairs, beds and headboards; these pieces will perfectly match your home’s style.


Proper lighting creates welcoming, functional spaces. Our lighting design package considers your home holistically, and takes account of both the technical and decorative lighting systems. We add depth, texture and warmth to transform even the dullest room.


We design bespoke joinery to suit your interior requirements. We craft bookcases, media centres, kitchen cabinetry, vanities, and more from quality materials to suit your needs. Bespoke joinery adds dimension and interest, not to mention a practical storage solution designed specifically for your requirements.


Soft furnishings like curtains, blinds, cushions, and pillows are an essential part of any interior design, adding colour, texture, detail and comfort to the room. To give your project a truly individual look and feel, we can design and make your cushions, curtains, blinds and other soft furnishings entirely in-house. Our specialist soft furnishing designer Jenna and our highly skilled seamstress Henny will manage the whole process, from selecting fabrics right through to installation.


How the space around your home looks, feels and connects with the space within is a crucial, but too often overlooked, element of your interior design. So at Pfeiffer Design, we always consider your outdoor surroundings and the landscape design as an integral part of your overall design concept. Depending on your needs and site, we can create a space in which to relax, entertain, play games, grow food and flowers, or add a separate studio or home office.
