What our Clients say
We really needed more space for our 2 boys and our existing conservatory area wasn't really working for us. Glenn came to us on recommendation and has been a pleasure to work with. Glenn totally understood what we needed and came up with some really good ideas and various design options. He explained clearly how the whole process worked and really took on total responsibility so we did not need to worry about anything. Now we will have an amazing new house with large open plan Kitchen Diner and Island unit we always dreamed of. Our boys not only have their own En-suites but now have the entire loft area for games and cinema room when their friends come round meaning the rest of the house is free from clutter. If you want to extend your house and actually quite enjoy the process - Glenn is the guy to use. He really cares in getting it absolutely perfect for you and making sure he gets the best he can for the budget you have.
Paul Nathan, 5 Dukes Orchard, Bexley
We appointed Bluelime to carryout designs for a side extension to our period property in Richmond. Our house is classified as 'architectural interest' so we knew it was important to get the right designer on board from the outset. Bluelime were fantastic and really easy to get on with. Nothing was a problem despite us changing our minds several times. They even got the builders in to do the work and took care of everything letting us get on with our own busy lives. What a wonderful surprise when we returned from holiday to find our new home finished, cleaned and ready well ahead of the arrival of our baby daughter! I would highly recommend the services of Bluelime especially if quality is important to you and you want your home extension hassle free.
Rowan Hoare, 85 Popes Av, Richmond
Glenn’s design of our house extension was amazing. Our lifestyle at home will be so much better now being able to entertain using our new open plan Kitchen/Diner. With a growing family the additional bedrooms, ensuites and playroom have proved a real winner for our children. Glenn totally got what we wanted and designed our house with a real focus on functionality and use. We would not hesitate in recommending his services.
Nick Lyons, 35 Hill Crescent, Bexley, Kent DA5
Glenn was very respectful, helpful and appreciative of the fact that I felt I needed a building management company to help and support me in my project. I never felt obliged or pressured at any time in taking up any of the services provided by Bluelime Home Design. He always encouraged me to contact him if I had any questions or if I wanted him to meet up and go through anything. I was always given time and lots of opportunities to express any concerns I had relating to the drawings / planning of the project. I was able to add my own ideas, where I felt I wanted to change something; But, where an idea was not possible, I was provided with clear and understandable reasoning as to why my suggestion or ideas may not have worked or gone well with the overall design of the project, which I was truly grateful for.
Manjinder Badatch, 89 Springhead Road, Northfleet, Kent, DA11 9QZ
We approached Glenn a few months ago having read so many positive reviews about his work and we haven't been disappointed. Infact we have been very impressed with the level of service he has provided. His professional expertise, knowledge & attention to detail has been outstanding. He has worked with us to keep the costs down on materials etc. without compromising on quality. The drawings he put together for us are everything we wanted and more, he was able to completely capture our vision on paper and also gave us lots of very good ideas which we have decided to incorporate into the design. Glenn has been very flexible, he has been able to work around our circumstances when had to put the project on hold due to a unforeseen circumstances. We are now at the planning permission stage and I am confident that at the end of the process we will get the approval we are so eagerly awaiting.

Blue Lime Designs are a great company to work with. They are reliable, efficient and assisted us throughout our entire project. Would highly recommend.
Keri Marner, Comino, Pescot Avenue, Longfield, Kent DA3 7NA
Glenn and his team are efficient, polite and respond to your enquiries straight away. They came to visit us twice and produced a Design Report that clearly outlined all the stages and costs involved in our project in an easily digestible way. This Included creative solutions to problems and further expansion ideas. Blue Lime even offered us great discounts. We would highly recommend.

Bluelime have helped me on 4 projects so far. Their work is excellent and very creative. I will be using them again on future projects and recommend them to anyone without hesitation.
Steve Brown, 1 Downs Avenue, Elmstead Woods, Chislehurst, Kent BR5
We needed an extension to our house which was to double its size. The project needed a great deal of thought and planning to deal with complicated roof changes and drainage issues. Bluelime handled the project from start to end and dealt with all aspects of the process. Glenn was extremely professional, creative but very functional with the design, listened to what we wanted and made suggestions to areas we hadn't thought of. The outcome is house better than we ever imagined. Thank you for all of your hard work.
Nick Lyons, 35 Hill Crescent, Bexley, Kent DA5
We were pleased with what was produced and found Glenn to be very helpful. He got exactly what we wanted to achieve. We have recommended him to friends.

Carina Wills, Black Barn Cottages, Crouch Lane, Platt, Sevenoaks, Kent TN15 8LX
I met Glenn approximately 6 weeks ago and the initial discussions; survey and selection of drawings made available to me happened very quickly. No problems in recommending this service. All very seamless and we're now at the drawing submission stage

Lucy Reeve, 63 Southborough Road, Bickley, Kent BR1 2EL
Excellent service, professional and attentive, with great planning suggestions.
Steve Dagg, 11 Wilmott Road, Dartford, Kent DA1 3BA
After being very frustrated by another architect, Glenn was recommend to us via a friend. From the onset his positive approach and 'can do' attitude was a far cry from our previous experience.
Our build had very specific needs for us and we had previously been told that only some could be met. This was not an option for us. Glenn however, would not be beaten. He met all our requirements with some very innovative designs and clever storage options which not only pleased us but also planning regulators.
We now have the home we desired thanks to Glenn and his team at Bluelime.
Our experience in working with Glenn has been fantastic. We found him not only very professional but his personal approach and caring was very welcoming.
We would highly recommend Glenn and Bluelime home designs as they deliver a very excellent service.
Nicholas Campbell, Ballymena, Co. Antrim, N.Ireland
We needed a much bigger space for our family than our smaller home allowed so decided on a large two story extension with attached garage and utility room. After contacting Glenn at Blue Lime he took us by the hand and did everything we needed regarding the design of the extension and obtaining planning permission. What a relief to have him on board! Pleasant, helpful, reassuring and he got the job done exactly the way we wanted it. A true professional in every way. We already had the builders in mind so just needed the design and planning elements covered. The end result is a beautiful new space in which our young family can develop and grow. It was a pleasure having Glenn and Blue Lime work on our project and I can honestly say that it was because of him that things went so smoothly. Thanks Glenn for all your hard work, ingenuity and creativeness. You have made our home a fantastic place to live in.
Jeff Campbell, 35 Granville Drive, Ballymena, Co. Antrim, N.Ireland BT43
With a growing family and the need to modernise our house we wanted advice on a possible Loft and Ground Floor extension. After discussing our requirements with a few different architects we met with Glenn from Blue Lime. Glenn was friendly, helpful and really listened to what we were trying to achieve as a family. Glenn suggested a couple of different ideas and then quickly put together some initial drawings. One of the best things about using Blue Lime are the inclusive packages they offer which are easy to understand and mean that Blue Lime take care of everything, from finalising the drawings, to managing the planning application process and initiating building control. Glenn was always available whenever we had questions and was always happy to meet in person or chat things through over the phone. Once the builders had been appointed Glenn would continue to stay in touch to see how things were developing. Planning building works are stressful at the best of times, but Glenn really helped remove the stress from the process. Whether you just need basic drawings or a full service package I would definitely recommend using Glenn and the Blue Lime team.
Ben Grover, 9 Dallin Road, Bexleyheath DA6 8EH
11 out of 10 for the advice, guidance and overall services provided. I cannot stress enough how useful Bluelime Home Design have been. From start to finish an extremely efficient and helpful team that took every little bit of stress out of our recent home extension. My wife and I both work long hours and with limited knowledge of the building game I was delighted to find a company that was able to look after everything throughout each stage of the process. You name it, they looked after it. They even completed ALL of the paperwork and followed everything up so I hardly had a telephone call to make, an email to write nor a builder to chase as it was all already INCLUDED in the deal. These guys use their contacts to their advantage and everything went as smoothly as they had pre-promised and planned. Believe me when I say that this service is unbeatable. A huge thanks goes out to Glenn and his team, highly recommended and an absolute pleasure to deal with- A+++ RATED!!
Darren McClintock, 3A Parkanore, Glenariffe, Co. Antrim N.I BT44 0AY
Glenn's appreciation of the possibilities for our extension far exceeded our own ideas. He successfully maximised light and space in our Victorian property while maintaining the character of the building. He was very supportive while guiding us through the challenging planning process, and managed the building tender process with great attention to detail, which continued through the project management phase. Overall we are delighted with our finished home and would definitely recommend Bluelime.
