Interiors designed to save you money

People assume that using an interior designer is a costly luxury - but this is not always the case.


Often people assume that using an interior designer is a costly luxury - but this is not the case with M&Y Interiors of Bushey Heath, Herts. In fact, it can save you money.

M&Y Interiors was started by Mandy Chody and Mandy Engelsman, who noticed "a definite niche for approachable interior designers". Nearly 20 years (and hundreds of commissions) later, this down-to-earth approach is still just as important. Whatever the budget, M&Y Interiors is able to use its expertise to create a stunning look for your home, but, says the company, "it may look a million dollars, but it certainly won’t cost you that!"

M&Y Interiors (unlike many other interior designers) does not charge an hourly rate and there are no hidden costs. You pay a nominal design fee and for that there is a detailed estimate, colour boards of furniture, fabrics etc together with floor plans showing the furniture layout. You are even able to see a 3D computer-generated image of exactly what your room will look like when the work is complete.

Is the table too big, is the sofa too small? Such questions are answered before you have bought a single piece of furniture. This saves the client from making mistakes and mistakes cost money.

From then, all specified items (tables, chairs, sofas, curtains etc) are charged at retail prices. You will not pay any more than if you went shopping yourself - but you will have no queues, no parking, no wandering from shop to shop asking yourself "does this cushion really match...?".

M&Y also has access to many fabrics and furniture not available in shops, so although you will be paying highstreet prices, you will achieve a more exclusive look. Once the designs are completed, all deliveries are co-ordinated - clients receive a delivery schedule convenient to them. No more waiting in from 8am to 6pm only to be told that actually your delivery has been postponed until next week.

Are you trying (unsuccessfully) to sell your house? M&Y Interiors is now offering a "house doctor" service too. The objective is to maximise your property’s value and minimise the time it takes to sell.

The M&Y house doctor will assess your home and see if there are ways that it can be improved to speed up the selling process. Sometimes a room could benefit from a fresh coat of paint, new accessories or something as simple as rearranging the furniture. The M&Y house doctor can do it all - and the best bit - this service is free! M&Y charges you only for the items you buy to improve your home.

From the moment you decide to instruct M&Y Interiors, the process is smooth, hassle-free and enjoyable.

M&Y takes away all the stress of coordinating a project, making sure everything is in place and the stunning home you imagined is now a reality.
