How we work

Services

Liquid Interiors is a full-service Interior Design firm, designing and implementing 360-degree bespoke interiors from concept through to completion.

Our goal for each project is to create beautiful, timeless, personalized, and meaningful interiors for our clients that improve their environment, health, and lifestyle.

Through the design and build process, we use our professional contractors to execute our designs. This means that we can be sure that the level of quality meets our high, environmentally friendly, and non-toxic standards.

For our residential projects, we tend to work on whole home renovations. We provide a full bespoke turnkey service from concept through the construction process to selecting and ordering all the furniture and accessories and completing the entire look and feel.

We also provide our bespoke service to select like-minded commercial clients to help them bring sustainability and wellness to their spaces. We can aid in making this progressive approach more evident to their clients through visual awareness and marketing.

For best results and visibility in the commercial sector, we recommend full certification in a green building standard. We specialize in LEED® and The WELL® Building Standards, and we can include certification consultation within our service.

Healthy and sustainable design is an increasingly positive investment in the future, so at Liquid Interiors, we work closely with developers to help them stand out from the market. We do this by providing inspirational living spaces realized through show flats and wellness real estate developments.

We are also specialists in integrating wellness into hospitality projects. We use our knowledge of the latest wellness trends, innovative design, and technology to create visitor experiences connected with nature and rooted firmly in place.

Process

We love to get to know new clients! From the beginning of any project, we take a healthy and sustainable approach, emphasizing our understanding of your health, wellness, and environmental priorities. We undertake a site visit and carry out an assessment to ensure we have a deep connection with and understanding of your lifestyle and interior design dreams. We provide precise details about the different stages of our process and also written proposals with design fees.

The first stage of the design process is to define the concept for your project; this is where we can consider your design taste and aspirations for your dream space. We research ideas to produce a creative, visual concept and present these visuals as mood boards embodying your style, life aspirations, and wellness priorities. We also introduce you to how we will incorporate healthy and sustainable living concepts into your home design. We also confirm layout plans and provide a preliminary program and budget.

Design Development is the most fun part of the process when we begin to bring your new home to life! During this stage, we work up your mood boards to create detailed plans and sketches, referring back to you as you start to see your home taking shape. We also focus on our unique healthy and sustainable elements, such as an indoor air quality plan, water savings, healthy eating, space-saving, energy-saving, low VOC materials, equipment, lighting, and furniture. We meet to visit kitchen and bathroom showrooms. We then present our proposals with clear preliminary costs and updated program to ensure we are prioritizing your needs along with your desired budget.

Our technical working drawings are to tender, certification, and construction standards. We create a circadian lighting presentation; we begin to work on the smaller details and specify all non-toxic material and long-lead furniture, fixtures, and equipment. We then present our proposals using the latest 3D rendering technology that brings to life your completed project.

At the pricing and tender stage of our process, we invite prices from our contractors based on your drawing tender set, bill of quantities, mood boards, and 3D visuals. We are then able to provide you with an analysis of their submissions. We work with a limited number of trusted contractors to work through the renovation process to ensure high-quality work.

See our designs come to life in your home! We fully manage and implement the construction of our projects, coordinating contractors and suppliers, ensuring that we get the highest quality detailed finish from the companies working for us. We insist that a minimum of 50% of site demolition waste is recycled and that all materials on site are low in VOCs. We also have strict site rules that minimize contamination of our projects with unhealthy materials.

Purchasing and detailed styling and staging of the project takes place during this stage as we curate furniture, art, and accessories to perfect your finished look. We have the fun job of deciding upon the items of furniture and styling that will be the finishing touches for your home. These are the items that will help that feeling of emotional and physical wellbeing and a sense of connection. It’s so important to us that your home will reflect you, your passions and interests, and to be a meaningful space for you to spend time. Once work on-site is completed and we styled your home to photoshoot standard. There is a minimum budget for our styling service. 

We undertake a deep clean using certified green cleaning products and by testing, we ensure safe levels of air and water quality before moving in. We like to ensure that everything that goes into construction has low or zero VOCs. Once the project is complete, we conduct a full fresh air flush out for 24 hours to remove any dust and particles that may have entered the air inadvertently during the works.

In the last stage, just before you move into your property, we check and inspect the property with you to ensure that there are no remaining defects. We also provide you with a detailed healthy and sustainable maintenance guide and planning document. This information will help you to maintain your new equipment, such as water filters, air filters, and air conditioning. We suggest green cleaning protocols and products, and we train you in the energy and air quality monitoring and use of smart home technology.
