Our Interior Design Process

We have developed a simple, step-by-step process that seamlessly guides you through the stages required to achieve your vision. Whether you prefer to work directly with us, or entrust the collaboration to your architect, builder, or other design professionals, we adapt our approach to ensure everyone involved is heard and understood.

1. Defining the Brief

Upon receiving your initial inquiry, we schedule an initial meeting, either in our showroom or at your project site. This first step allows us to connect with you, understand your aspirations and goals, and identify any budgetary or physical constraints impacting the project. If you are collaborating with an architect or builder, we'll also review their plans during this meeting. With a clear understanding of your vision and project parameters, we will then provide a comprehensive fee proposal for our interior design services. This proposal will outline the steps necessary to transform your vision into reality.

2. Creating the Concept

On acceptance of the fee proposal, we develop a concept; a core idea that will inform all our design decisions. We will prepare a mood board and concept themes, which we will present to you before deciding on the final direction for the detailed design plans.

3. Developing the Design

With a confirmed design concept aligned with your goals, we will further refine it, showcasing detailed material and colour palettes plus proposed fixtures and fittings etc. At this stage we check colour brushouts, fabrics etc on Site and make changes where necessary

4. Detailing Specifications and Costings

At this stage, we prepare detailed specifications and costings for all elements. This is the critical stage, where we finalise all details before moving to final specifications and procurement.

5. Supervising on Site

On-Site Site supervision allows us to make sure the design is built as documented. We are available as much or as little as required to ensure the end result is as designed.

What our customers say


The design team at Lahood advised on fabric, colour and co-ordination. They measured everything while my apartment was still being completed & gave an accurate quote. My electronic blinds & curtains were all installed prior to me moving in. I am so happy with them & have had multiple comments on how good they look.
