Preparing for your planning appointment

Get the most out of your planning appointment

We're here to help you create your perfect space, and at your online appointment, you’ll get all the guidance you need to make your design a reality. By following our quick checklist below before your appointment, you’ll be well prepared to get the most out of your time with us.

Step 1: Getting inspired

If you’re looking for a refresh, or a complete revamp, but aren’t sure what you want it to look like, it’s a good idea to have a think about this before your appointment.

Our help and advice articles and videos are full of inspiration to help you with your whole project.

Step 2: Measure & sketch


The measurements of your room will be the basis of your design.

It’s important these are accurate, so we’ve created some handy guides to help you out.

Think about the logistics of your room; the space, the layout, and anything you feel it’s currently missing.

Step 3: Shop for it


At your online appointment with our colleague you’ll work together to create a 3D design which you can view and change at home using our free design tool.

You’ll take away your complete quote with price breakdown too. There will also be an opportunity to chat about and apply for our finance products.
