Matthews Rea offers a personalised service to private clients and developers in both residential and commercial interior design.
Not only do we strive to deliver beautiful bespoke interiors, we concentrate on fulfilling functional and comfortable spaces for our clients and their visitors. Our aim is to ensure our clients feel at ease, offering designs that suit their personal taste and lifestyle, whilst welcoming their involvement throughout the design process.
Our services include:
- Interior Architecture & Design
Looking at spatial planning and suggesting any structural adaptations that may be required to new build or renovation projects. We can source and procure anything from flooring to wallcoverings, aquariums, artwork, furniture, accessories and lighting to every sized project.
- Bespoke Joinery and Furniture Design
From understated storage, to high-end luxury kitchens, we design and produce a vast range of bespoke joinery items including bathroom vanities, integrated wardrobes and media walls with consideration to every last detail.
- Interior Styling
We collaborate with property developers to market show homes to their best potential, creating comfortable and desirable spaces.
- Project co-ordination
We work on projects from conception right through to completion and offer a complete turn key service, including the dressing of beds and dining tables should our clients wish.
Computer Aided Drawings
Scaled drawings can be shared with our client’s architect and building contractor for ease of communication and time efficiency
- Computer Generated Images and Virtual Reality
Our in-house CGI specialist can create a full set of 3D computer generated images to help our clients visualise our design proposals from all angles. We can implement the correct finishes, scales and lighting to create a true representation of the design scheme.
We pride ourselves on our personal approach to designs that are tailored to the requirements of each client. Each project is unique and requires different levels of our services. We adapt our services to meet the needs of our clients to always fulfil expectation. Our service is split in to the following stages:
Stage 1. Initial Meeting
Our conversation begins at the project premises or our Fetcham Park House, Surrey based offices for a no obligation discussion. At this visit, the client brief and budget will be established and we will outline the services available. After this initial meeting, a written scope of works proposal will be sent, outlining the agreed timescales, budgets and services.
Stage 2. Spatial and Concept Design
On gaining insight in to our client’s lifestyle and personal taste from the briefing stage, we can advise on spatial planning, incorporating storage and furniture layouts to enhance the functionality and aesthetics of any space.
Scaled floor plans will be produced (if not already available) with space planning (interior architecture) and furniture placement suggestions. Mood boards with colour palettes are created with concept images to convey the overall design. This is presented along with a detailed schedule itemising breakdown costs.
At this stage, realistic imagery can be computer generated to offer our clients a true insight to the newly designed space.
Stage 3. Finalising the design details
With a full concept design in place, the interior architecture and design will be fully developed with finalised floor plans incorporating lighting and electrical layouts, detailed joinery drawings and final finishes and fixtures to the finest of detail.
Stage 4. Procurement
We work with an extensive selection of specialist suppliers who we have established strong and reliable working relationships with. Offering the finest interior finishes, furniture and fittings for our client’s budget, we place all orders for you, liaise with our suppliers and monitor deliveries to ensure a seamless process.
Stage 5. Installation
Leading on from purchasing, we will project manage the installation of all deliveries and ensure that every item arrives as it should in perfect condition and on time. We can then dress your property with agreed accessories, to offer the perfect turn key service if required.
