The Design Process

At the outset of your project the team at Grove Design London take time to meet with you and your family to understand your requirements in great detail. We understand that undertaking an interior refurbishment or renovation can be daunting. We put you at ease and explain the process and how we will work through it together. Your home and it’s design are very personal things and it’s important at the outset for you to be confident in us and want to work with us. It’s a journey we embark on together.

Once we have agreed the final brief the creative process starts. At this point we prepare concept boards and some initial indicative drawings. This is a key phase of the project where we play back your requirements and offer design solutions for your space. There are usually two or three iterations of the Concept and we only proceed to the next phase when you are 100% happy with the Concept design

The design development phase is the most involved phase of the design. During this phase you really see your vision come to life. We finalise all the design components including hard surfaces, furniture, bespoke joinery and soft furnishings. We deliver final floor plans, elevations, other images and schedules as required. If you are using your own contractors we gladly work with them or we happily manage the tender process to ensure you have the right team on your project.

We provide project coordination services if you want to completely step out of the process and simply walk back in to a completed beautiful space. We work alongside the contractor and manage the procurement of all specified items you have approved ready for delivery and installation. We coordinate post build cleaning and set up the space ready for you and your family. We love to photograph the final look on completion as a record of another rewarding transformation.


If you love the involvement and process of design and are undertaking the project yourself we offer a tailored consultation to assist you with the process. This is usually a half day or full day spent with you in your home followed up with a detailed report with suggestions and guidelines. Consultations help you overcome any blockers you have for example with space planning, colour or styling. The consultation is bespoke to you to ensure we deliver a solution for your challenge.

If you are looking for finishing touches that are special and unique then we can help. We offer bespoke, hand finished curtains and blinds from our library of thousands of fabrics and finishes. If you are struggling to find what you need on the high street then we can create this for you whether it’s a custom size chair or sofa or a beautiful window dressing for an unusual window.

With access to thousands of products that are not widely available to retail customers we can source virtually anything you need for the space. Fabrics, antiques, artwork and décor; just let us know what you are looking for. If you can imagine it we can find it. And if we can’t find it we know someone who can create it.

We are interior design experts and are happy to take custom requests to find solutions to whatever challenges you are facing.
