Interior Design Process

How does Kia’s Interior Design service work?

Our clients are looking for a hassle free design whilst maintaining a sense of themselves in the design without budgets running out of control. You are looking for clearly laid out answers to your questions over interior design prices and the design process (right below!) from a studio that consistently produces five star reviews from clients.  Interior Design can be too much about smoke and mirrors and not enough about substance, our service is crystal clear from the beginning.


We like to be a little bit different, we state our fees here on the website so you can see exactly how much you will be paying. No extra charges. This means that we can all sit back and relax from the beginning of the project knowing that we are not going to be going over budget due to our design fees.
