Testimonials

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you on behalf of Whitehaven RLFC for the work undertaken by your company So Sound Architecture & Interior Design on the refurbishment at Whitehaven Rugby League's Recreation Ground, consisting of the modification of the existing changing room, the provision of a new changing room and gym area. The work included support in development of specifications and design, along with plans for the refurbishment, which I have to say were all completed to an extremely high standard in the most efficient manner, showing great urgency to meet our extremely tight deadlines.

FAQs

What should I do before I contact an interior architect / designer?
Collect a few pictures from magazines or the internet that capture the look, style or colours that you like. Present the pictures to your designer during your initial consultation. Images are a great way to communicate and will help an interior designer to clearly understand your ideas.

I would like to re-design my home or office but I don’t have a lot of time to devote to the process, should I still hire a designer?
Yes, most definitely, we’ll handle the shopping, ordering and delivery of finish materials, furnishings and fixtures, as well as coordinate and oversee the labour, so you can spend more time enjoying family, friends, loved ones and outside activities. We’ll bring selections to your home or office if you prefer not to go to design showrooms with us and try to make it as convenient as possible. All we ask in return is that communicate with us in a timely fashion so that we can help you create your vision.

What happens at the first consultation?
Our initial consultation brings you a highly qualified interior architect to your home or office for an in-depth interview, to identify your design objectives and outline the steps needed to accomplish them. This first meeting usually lasts about one to two hours. At the first meeting we will measure and photograph areas to be designed, create a room by room list of necessary construction, furniture, colours and accessories required. We will also go through a client questionnaire which allows us to gather specific information to help us understand you and your requirements.

My project only involves re-decorating my space, how does a professional interior designer’s skills differ from an in-store decorator at a local furniture, tile, or kitchen and bath showroom?
Many times retail in-store decorators are primarily sales people. They’ve had only a limited education in interior design and space planning, unlike professional interior architects / designers who attend comprehensive, accredited 4 year interior architecture programs at university. Typically, in-store decorators are not as well versed in scale, proportion, space planning, colour theory and health and safety issues. Also, they’ll only offer you product selections from their featured lines. Professional interior architects have access to hundreds of trade-only vendors and manufacturer’s worldwide. If you decide to use an in-store designer make sure you ask about their qualifications in order to determine if they are the right man for your job.
