We pride ourselves on providing a service experience that is second-to-none.

That means doing everything we can to ensure a design journey that is smooth, enjoyable, honest and transparent.

Interior Design

Our team of expert interior designers work with quiet colours and authentic, natural materials to create calm, understated and harmonious spaces. The furniture we use is a skillful blend of specially made pieces, carefully sourced antiques and contemporary design. Each interior is elevated by art and collectables meticulously sourced from the UK and abroad. The result is homes that are timeless and beautiful yet welcoming and comfortable.

Interior Architecture

When a house requires a major overhaul Sims Hilditch draws on the talents of our interior architects, who consider the functionality of each room, but also look at the house as a whole - how the spaces flow and whether they might be reconfigured to work better for our client’s lifestyle. We also make design decisions regarding the building’s fabric, from staircases and internal doors, to cornices and built-in joinery so that every detail of the building looks absolutely right.

Project Management

Our project managers pride themselves on accuracy, excellent communication and meticulous attention to detail. Their role is to collaborate with the interior design team so projects run efficiently and to ensure our clients schedules and budgets are respected at all times. They also ensure interiors are delivered and installed within the agreed timescales. This leaves clients free to enjoy their design journey.

Our Process

The majority of our clients utilise the skills of the interior architect team as well as the interior design studio, however, in some circumstances we will undertake interior decoration only projects.

Stage 1

Establish the Brief

A meeting is held to explore the scope of the work and our clients requirements.

Stage 2

Create the Concept

The overall design aesthetic, functionality and flow of the house is established via floor plans and concept image boards for decoration.

Stage 3

Interior Architecture

All aspects of the kitchen and bathrooms are designed and the fixed elements of the house are specified including the lighting schemes, wall and floor finishes, bespoke joinery, fireplaces and internal ironmongery.

Stage 4

Interior Decoration

A full decoration scheme is proposed covering paint, wallpaper, soft furnishings and fabric as well as decorative lighting, window treatments and furniture.

Stage 5

Procurement & Budget Management

A comprehensive budget document is produced detailing everything to be procured on behalf of our client. This enables the project managers to monitor lead times and order status while ensuring the costs are in line with client expectations.

Stage 6

Installation and Dressing

A full Sims Hilditch team is onsite to ensure a smooth, efficient installation and final dressing.
