Services and fees
No matter which of our services you decide upon the process is essentially the same, but please note that not all the stages listed below are available with all services – for more information please contact us on the telephone number at the top of this page to discuss your project.
The design stage
After contacting Akswood Interiors you can expect to be telephoned by one of our design team. They will have a brief chat with you to discuss the likely scope of your project and which of our services you may be interested in. We then send to you by post or email our pre-consultation questionnaire. This document is used to establish your initial requirement and forms the primary basis of discussion at your first consultation and any work thereafter. Once we have received your completed questionnaire we’ll call you to arrange your FREE initial consultation.**
**Consultation is entirely free of charge for clients living within 40 miles of Nairobi. Clients living further a field will be charged a small pre-arranged fee to cover costs.
An essential part of our assessment is to view your chosen space, discuss your requirements and budget, make initial suggestions and assess how much involvement you need from us. An interior designer will visit you at your office or home and spend at least an hour discussing your requirements, getting to know you and understand the kind of look and feel you want to achieve. They will complete a full laser survey of the space to be redesigned and may also make sketches and take photographs at this stage. This is also your opportunity to view our portfolio and pose as many questions as you like about our services. Following this meeting we will send you a quotation for the design work we propose to undertake. free initial consultation design meetings
After the initial consultation we will have some idea of how you wish to proceed and will begin work on an outline idea. At a second meeting we will present you with a minimum of 2 mood boards. These boards are a visual representation of our designer’s ideas of the proposed design, colour scheme, materials, furnishings etc for discussion. This process will further establish your specific requirement and the budget for the project. Once approved, we will move onto creating your design in detail.
At our final design meeting you will be presented with your personalised final design concept. Our suggestions are presented in A2, A3 & A4 format and may include visuals such as floor plans, elevations, layouts, and ideas boards, as well as written recommendations, and summary notes along with samples of fabrics flooring and wall coverings where required along with details of all proposed furniture, fixtures and/or fittings and accessories.
