Posted by Devenia Besant on 02 Jun 2020
⭐️ Tell us a bit about you and your business?
Hi I am Alexandria Dauley, local Interior Designer and owner of Dauley Design, Design and Build. I set up Dauley Design having trained at KLC School of Design. I specialise in transforming residential interiors from individual room redesign up to whole house renovations and rebuilds. We offer comprehensive design and build solutions that take a new, fresh approach to existing spaces therefore allowing clients to realise the true potential of their home by creating schemes that offer both beauty and practicality. Our service is for those who need help planning and visualising their project or those who do not have the time to manage a build project. I design the project, source and purchase all of the products on your behalf and project co-ordinate the entire design and build process with my team of contractors and trades to develop a bespoke interiors scheme that is tailored to you.
I offer full 3D images and videos of the redesigned space so that the client can visualise the project before any work starts as people can struggle to understand how the space would look.
We offer a bespoke service of Design, Build, Bespoke Joinery, Kitchen and Bathroom Design, Lighting Design, Office Builds, Landscaping and Decorative services.
⭐️ What’s changed for your business since the outbreak of Covid-19?
Since the outbreak the biggest hurdles I have faced are the fact I have not been able to undertake face to face meetings in clients homes which is a big part of the process to build relationships and carry out site surveys etc. Also suppliers have closed or have delayed delivery and reduced stock levels. We are having to adapt by undertaking more video calls and sourcing new supply chains.
⭐️ What are you looking forward to now lock down is easing?
I am looking forward to meeting up with my clients and suppliers face to face. I want to visit showrooms and immerse myself in the design world once more. I cannot wait to see my parents who are in Wales and meet up with friends and family….also go out for a meal😊
⭐️ Lastly what’s your positive message to help others through this?
This too shall pass and we will come out the other side. Hopefully some of the changes we have seen in terms of a slower pace of life, appreciating the smaller things and our environment will continue and we will focus on those positive outcomes.
