To create the space of your dreams, there are many factors you would need to evaluate when designing a room. The main factors or elements include space, colour and light.

Creating a beautiful end result relies on balancing those elements to create a harmonic and aesthetically pleasing interior. Also, you need to keep in mind the materials used in the design combining patterns and textures as they are the key to creating depth to the space.

Where To Find Inspiration

Many of our clients come to us and ask where can I find inspiration? In today's digital age, interiors and art are visual products so the main benefit is that you can narrow down your favourite styles and choices by looking through different selections and schemes. The best places to start are Instagram and Pinterest. With a vast choice of homes and office interior designs available to browse through, you will quickly start to find out what you like and of course, what doesn't appeal.

At Abstract House, we love interior design and we are excited to announce that Abstract House is now a proud member of the British Institute Of Interior Design (BIID), which is the only professional institute for interior designers in the UK representing both the commercial and residential sectors, from heritage to cutting edge.

To celebrate being a member of BIID, we thought to talk about our favourite interior design services available in the UK, and most importantly, online interior design services for 2022.

You ask why? Well, the answer is simple. Not only are online design services affordable and fast, connecting you to the best interior designers without location being a hurdle. But, by utilising the resources of an experienced interior designer, you’re gaining a pair of fresh eyes who will keep in mind your needs and requirements for the desired room and completely change the way you use your space. And frankly, sometimes it is good to leave the job to the professionals.


What is an online Interior design service and how does it work?

Online interior design service is a great solution if you are looking to freshen up your space on a budget, are short on time due to work or family commitments and you want to work with a professional designer.

You can design individual rooms or the whole house if you wish. It also makes it easier to choose new furniture, art, mirrors and everything in-between by offering recommendations via mood boards to show you what it would look like, just like any professional interior designer on the high street.

Some designers use Pinterest boards to collate their choices of paint colour, room aesthetics, accessories and homeware. Whereas, other online designers use CAD (computer aided design) software such as Photoshop, Sketch Up or AutoDesk to produce their designs and 3D walkthroughs to give you the full experience of seeing your space become reality. This is an excellent way to go through the approval and sign-off stage before ordering any of the furniture and accessories for your newly designed interior.

Susann Bozorgi brought her dream to reality when she founded RoomLab. She was running a successful interior design business catering to clients with beautiful homes and high budgets. The idea came when she realised her friends couldn't afford an interior designer and she wanted to change that and let everyone get the help they needed without the headache or the cost.

Packages start from £79. They offer a dedicated delivery service for furniture meaning it can be delivered to you in one day, unboxed and the rubbish taken away.
