Interior design: where to splurge and where to save

Designing your home’s dream interior can feel overwhelming; there are so many style’s and price options. That’s why every Fairhaven Homes design comes with an Interior Design Consultation, where a fully qualified Fairhaven Homes Interior Designer will guide you through the entire selection process.

Here are a few questions to consider before your Interior Design appointment:

Included VS upgrade fixtures and fittings – what’s the difference?

Don’t be fooled by the word – our included fixtures and fittings are anything but. We only use high quality materials that will last just as long as our upgrade options.

The difference between included and upgrade is in the craftsmanship and style that upgrade features offer. Upgrades are for those who want to make a statement and let their personality be reflected in their home. Many people prefer to pay a little extra now for upgraded features they can enjoy for the next 30 years. You may find there are certain elements in your dream home that you want to accentuate; this is where it may be worth splurging if your budget allows.

If your budget is tight, or you just want to keep things simple, it’s great to know your inclusions will look amazing and serve you well for many years to come.

How do tiles transform the look and feel of your style?

Our expert interior designers will walk you through all the pros, cons and considerations and help you choose the perfect tiles for your needs. Whether you love a streamlined, light contemporary feel or a dramatic feature tile. Applying the same tiles to the floor and walls can make a space feel tidy and larger. Opting for floor to ceiling tiles keeps cleaning easy and provides a modern touch. Feature tiles often fun, bring personality into the space whilst larger oversized tiles mean less grout and a high end look.
