How Bluelime Home Design supports you

  • Keeping within budget: Home renovations, whether major or minor, seldom come cheap. As such, we at Bluelime Home Design are only ever 100% transparent with the associated costs of any work we undertake. You tell us your budget, and we’ll tell you what’s achievable, with no nasty surprises further down the line.
  • Drawing up the best designs: Working with the talented designers at Bluelime Home Design, you can be confident that any designs and blueprints that are put together will be of the highest standard. In fact, we will work closely with you throughout the process to ensure we’re able to perfectly realise your dream.
  • Securing planning approval: The headache of going back and forth with local councils regarding building regulations and such requirements is enough to put many off even considering renovation work. We at Bluelime, however, are knowledgeable about all the latest demands and can remove the hassle of having to liaise with such departments.
  • Finding trusted builders: Unsure of who to use to complete the work? We can control the entire process on your behalf, helping find trusted and reliable builders that will complete the job on time, on budget, and to the highest standard.
