A bit about yourself as a designer.

I lean towards coastal/Hamptons, clean and high end yet family friendly. I favour crisp clean whites with pops of colour.

What type of home did you build – describe the style/design.

Relaxed coastal/Hamptons with a touch of glamour and high-end finishes. All whilst being practical for a growing family.

What made you want to renovate your home?

We wanted to make more space for our growing family and also to update the old to new.

Tell us about the planning process about choosing your trades and how you went about it.

We wanted reliable honest trades that didn’t over commit and under deliver.

What were the “must-haves” for the renovation?

Lots of storage and space, and an open plan.

What lessons have you learnt whilst renovating?

Everything costs more than you budget for! But you might as well do it all now.

What’s your favourite room in the renovation and why?

The bathroom and the round bath, the finishes in the kitchen – the oven, sinks, tap ware – it’s hard to choose just one!

When did you contact us during the process and what benefits did dc+b provide?

We contacted dollar curtains + blinds mid renovation. The consultant was so helpful with all of my questions and the whole process was easy and stress free.

Was it beneficial to visit dc+b in store?

I didn’t need to – we got the whole thing done during the home consultation.

How did you find the measure + install service?

So lovely and easy!

What products did you choose from dc+b?

Sheer Curtains and Automated Blinds.

How did our products transform your home?

Incredibly! The Automated Blinds have been a game changer and a great asset. At the push of a button, I can open or close all of the Blinds at once.

Did you originally know what you were after in terms of window coverings or were you seeking our advice?

I had an idea but needed the advice of a professional to bring it to life and that’s exactly what I received from the dollar curtains + blinds consultant. She was able to explain the things I was unsure about to me and helped me bring my vision to life.
