Extending your Home?

We are often asked to help clients who don’t quite have four existing walls to re-design.  This can be a challenge, as many homeowners struggle to visualise the newly extended space and can’t clearly outline how the space will be used.

At Hannah Barnes Designs, we have created a specific set of services for the the ‘extending’ homeowner;


Spacial Planning:

After meeting over architect’s plans, we can start to shape the new space, showing how best to zone an open floor space, create interesting lighting schemes and plan furniture.  By grasping these areas of the design early on, the builders will have a better idea of what’s required, and the interior will have a much clearer vision from the start.  This stage of the design scheme is ideal for the very start of your home-improvement journey.  So if you aren’t quite sure how much the kitchen should be, or where the windows will go to suit the proportion of the sofa, it’s time to give us a call.


We also work alongside fantastic builders and other contractors, so may be able to point you towards a reliable  pair of hands.


On-Site Support:

Throughout the construction of the extension, we can arrange visits to support you through the foundation stage of the project, to ensure the interior takes shape to adhere to the initial vision.


Interior Schemes:


If you’re not sure where the focal wall will be, or whether a corner sofa will fit, then how can you be sure your dream interior design scheme will flow?  That’s where we can help – with design boards, swatches and samples, product specifications and more…all created for your individual space and the needs of your family.  From flooring, to lighting, soft furnishings and more, your unique design scheme will help you to understand how beautiful your space can look.

Interior Dressing:


Your design schemes will include all the information you need to implement the schemes yourselves if you wish… But to be sure your designs are brought to life exactly as planned, we can dress your rooms to perfection once the builders have completed.

With a trusted team of decorators, soft furnishers, cleaners and joiners, we’ll take your improved house and turn it into your home.  From hanging artwork, to dressing windows and more…so you can sink into the plump sofa cushions and enjoy with a glass of wine.  For examples on some of our recent beautiful projects, browse through our case studies.
