At Divine Design, we understand that each client is unique. Our residential designs are as individual as our clients, we listen to your needs, taste and budget and create a bespoke Divine Design.
We understand the complexities of designing a personal space and how that space can affect your quality of life. A home provides a sanctuary from everyday stresses and at Divine Design, we recognise the importance of creating the perfect haven for our clients. We eliminate the stresses to ensure the smooth running of the project, guiding you through the myriad of decisions from electrical and plumbing plans, spatial planning, lighting designs to managing budgets.
Successful residential design is always a matter of balance, creating interior spaces that are both functional and aesthetic. We assess the space, taking into consideration important factors such as the availability of natural light, accessibility, structure and architectural features. The end result is a liveable, functional space where our clients can relax and enjoy the harmonious balance of colours texture and lighting, that is signature Divine Design.
Our team of highly qualified, experienced interior designers and our specialist construction management team provide the expertise to manage each project on time and within budget.

Residential Design Process
Initial Briefing Meeting
Our first meeting is significant. Listening to and interpreting the needs of our client is key to the success of any project.
At the initial meeting one of our experienced designers will sit with you, the client to discuss your requirements, personal tastes, budget and lifestyle. We discuss any questions you may have in relation to the design process and management of the project.
Managing your budget is of critical importance to us. We wish to ensure that all our clients feel comfortable and relaxed throughout the process and always work within the budget set by you the client, tailoring the design to suit.
Subsequently you will receive a detailed brief, including scope of works and costings should you wish to proceed.
A nominal charge of €200 + VAT @ 23% is payable at the first meeting. This fee is fully refundable if you contract us to complete your design works.
Developing the Design Concept
We carry out a full survey of your home as required. We take photographs and ensure we have all the information and details needed to assess any structural work required and to commence work on the design and plans. We work with engineers, architects and other professionals to oversee structural works and ensure that all our work meets current building regulations.
Each project is different and unique. In order to develop a tailor-made design and create a totally bespoke finish, we source the relevant products and finishes for your specific project.
We provide design options on spatial layouts to include floor plans and elevations as well as any additional specialised 3D photo realistic images as required. We also offer bespoke architectural lighting plans, ensuring that you have the correct level of lighting for the space and tasks. The lighting plan will transform and enhance interior features and add atmosphere while blending seamlessly with the design and making each space come to life.
We present the fully completed design concept to the client, detailing spatial layouts, elevations, colour schemes, furniture, lighting specification, floor finishes, fabric palettes and fittings. We can also provide a full list of suppliers and costings on request.
Fees vary according to the level of finish required, room size and the scope of works. A comprehensive quote is sent following the initial meeting with the client and outlines in detail what the design fee covers. We ensure there are no hidden costs and always make the client aware of any additional costs that may be incurred due to any required alterations to the design or specific product changes.
