Interior Design Services

We've spoken to many people over the years who think interior design is just for the incredibly wealthy, for people who don't have any interior design ideas themselves, or people who don't want to be involved in the process at any stage.

This is why we do things a bit differently at Fitward & Hayton. Whether you're after a re-design for your entire home or would just like some advice on where to position your new F&H side table, we can help with any project, big or small. 

Whilst we are happy to take on projects where the client would like to hand everything over to us, we also completely understand that some clients want to be involved in every step of the way. In this situation, we will always work alongside the client to ensure that we are using our expertise and carefully chosen contacts to ensure your home reflects your style, tastes and personality.
