We are happy to report that we have many satisfied clients some of whom we have asked to tell you more about their experience of working with HomeSmiths. Watch or read some of their testimonials below.
At the design stage HomeSmiths listen well, draw out responses, make suggestions to refine the designs and ensure client satisfaction. During the delivery HomeSmiths are flexible and quick to respond to design changes with a can-do attitude, keeping in touch with the project to ensure just in time delivery to site.
Not only do HomeSmiths create comfortable, inviting and stylish spaces, with great attention to detail, but also Jacqui brings specialist dementia friendly design knowledge to the project. We have engaged HomeSmiths services on a number of independent living projects and would be pleased to work with HomeSmiths again in the future.
‘I had the pleasure of working with Jacqui and David on a recent care home installation – from construction through to completion. The HomeSmiths team were extremely professional and thorough, honing in on intricate details that emphasised their fantastic schemes. Jacqui is especially meticulous with her design for dementia. I would highly recommend their design services for future projects.’
‘We called in HomeSmiths to design our soon to be opened Dementia unit and they provided us with an excellent service. We gave them a brief stipulation of the kind of environment we wanted to create and they came back to us with a superb bespoke design. They decided to theme it around famous local people – actors, cooks, and singers – and tied it all into the musical name of the unit. The result is a unit with a peaceful atmosphere with iconic photos and art that helps to stimulate our residents and aid in their memory recall. The tactile displays they installed are works of art in themselves: collages that depict different scenes whilst being a mix of vibrant colours and various fabrics. Furthermore, they were efficient and a pleasure to work with both on and off site. We are extremely impressed with HomeSmiths and would recommend them to anyone that could make use of their services.’
‘Oxford Architects have recently worked with HomeSmiths on the interior design for a residential care home project in Oxford. Their friendly, professional, and pro-active team had a positive attitude and were open to honest collaboration. During the design stage, they carefully considered the needs of their target audience and welcomed feedback which resulted in the completed overall look and feel desired by the client. We have developed a good working relationship with HomeSmiths and that is something we hope to be able to continue doing on other projects in the future.’
‘I just wanted to say a HUGE thank you to the whole team for your consistently fantastic service, amazing vision, attention to detail and patience! I was simply blown away walking into the show flat yesterday. It has reminded me of the journey we’ve made over the last 2 years and that it is of course going to be a fantastic scheme.’
Praise where praise is due. For me this starts with the actual relationship we have formed with Jacqui and David. It has been built on their complete understanding of what we set out to achieve in terms of the feel and concept that we offer to our residents and their families. Our moto is “providing quality care”, and the interiors of our new build, 5 floor, dementia care home had to reflect this, both in terms of aesthetics, and functionality. They also had to have the ability to attract the level of resident we aspired to, and Jacqui was very quick to grasp what I wanted. The whole HomeSmiths team have always acted professionally, been courteous and humorous. Jacqui and David were always full of ideas, over a long and indeed quite stressful year (because projects of this size always are). All of this without anyone being overly protective of the design, showing what good team players they are; this was very important to me. Having worked with a few designers, there is always a point where there is potential for a clash, however this never happened with HomeSmiths. Indeed I felt they worked hand in hand with our design team throughout. We could simply not have asked for more in terms of forming a relationship, one that we hope will lead onto more projects. In terms of Jacqui’s expertise, she took on board the issues with dementia, poor eyesight, mobility etc. and in all things she understood our needs and those of our residents. To this end we have received no end of compliments from families, residents and many professionals. As the owner I could not be more satisfied. Please accept this as my personal thanks for the time, effort and pure professionalism shown on The Lindsay.
We are extremely happy with the quality and standard of the work that the Homesmiths team has done at our new build care home, The Willows in Ipswich. From the initial design meeting where we went through our requirements and ideas through to the grand opening nearly a year later, everything has been done to the highest standard. Jacqui and David themselves have been a joy to work with, understanding what we were after perfectly. Their ideas and general styling has been fab and the home looks phenomenal. The comments we received from everyone at the opening were superb and mostly around the design, colour and furniture, which were down to Homesmiths.
It has been an absolute pleasure to work with Jacqui, David and the entire Homesmiths team, and we hope to work with them on many more projects in the future. We would definitely recommend Homesmiths to any one looking for a fantastic interior design company.
