I would highly recommend Axer to anyone who is building, renovating or decorating their home.
My husband and I converted a sandstone barn from an empty shell into a 4 bedroom family home and Axer helped us with every stage of the development - from assisting with the fundamental layout and size of our rooms, and ensuring spaces flowed effortlessly into each other, through to the final stages of sourcing curtains and door handles....See more
She saved us a lot of money by directing us to websites and companies which offered exactly the sort of high quality materials and products we were looking for, but for substantially less than high street prices. She sourced a kitchen supplier who built our kitchen for less than half what other companies had quoted, and yet it has all the hand-made craftsmanship and timeless style we sought. She came shopping with me for bathroom tiles, and has an ability to hunt down a brilliant bargain and make something that looked plain in the shop look immensely elegant back at the house. So rather than being simply an additional cost, she reduced our budget in the overall scheme, and prevented us from making many expensive mistakes along the way!
She cleverly found a spot for a spacious linen cupboard when we thought we didn't have room, drew up a sophisticated lighting and electrical scheme and amended the floor plans to ensure that our furniture worked in the new rooms. She also assisted with appropriate proportions for our staircase, architraves and skirting boards, and she could always quickly come up with multiple solutions to any challenge, big or small. Unable to find the style of internal doors we were looking for, she directed us to a local reclamation yard who made oak doors that perfectly complemented our rustic barn style.
Axer was also invaluable when it came to decorating, creating a coordinated colour scheme that we love. She also advised on flooring, tiles and fabrics. In summary, Axer has an astonishing knack of creating a 5 star look, whatever your budget. She can help with a massive project or just a small aspect of your home improvement. She has an amazing talent for both large scale design, and for paying attention to the tiniest of details (eg making sure our sink was big enough to soak a large AGA roasting pan after the Sunday roast!).
As we look around our finished home, we are truly delighted with the finished product, and we owe a huge amount to Axer's vast skills and guidance. The conversion process was much less stressful and the results are infinitely superior and less expensive than if we had tried to do it all ourselves. Do pick up the phone and call Axer - you won't be disappointed!
