We all need to feel space around us – from morning til night we can be rushing around and helping other folk. Busy lives call for more precious moments of just time to ourselves. In a hectic house, this is sometimes very difficult to achieve and the more we fill our houses with the latest furniture and effects, the less space we have for relaxing. The best possible way to ensure that a house is totally fit for purpose is to have an interior designer draw up an scheme. They are so experienced – they can look at an existing layout and see the potential for making a room more spacious and calming. It goes without saying that much of the problem is overcrowding with stuff – that has to be addressed but a design studio can turn a busy overloaded house into a divine and serene, relaxing home. They are the experts after all.
