Interior Design specialising in configuring living spaces to achieve the greatest potential for natural light, comfort, practicality and aesthetic value.

 

With over twenty years in the design industry and a wealth of experience working with both individual and corporate clients, Sue Bean focuses on collaborating with her clients, facilitating the design process through discussion, achieving personal, fresh, innovative and inspiring interiors.

Working closely with other professionals such as structural engineers, building control, specialist carpenters, builders and other trades, Sue works throughout Worcestershire and the surrounding counties, applying her skills to all types of home from period properties to new builds.

 

The first hour of the initial consultation, which can happen onsite or remotely, is free as we establish if Sue Bean is the right designer for you. Fees are discussed at this time and range from an hourly rate to a set price for a specific outcome. This information is then provided as part of a detailed Project Proposal.

Sue is very happy to provide what is needed ranging from offering knowledge, inspiration and guidance through discussion, to visuals such as perspective drawings, CAD floorplans and layouts, bespoke cabinetry specification and commission to full on-site project management.

 

TESTIMONIALS

"Sue is great to work with because she has a cheerful disposition, she's good fun and she always enjoys a challenge (we certainly gave her one!)”


Mr and Mrs Viner 2020






FLEXIBLE & CREATIVE


“Sue offers creative suggestions 'outside-the-box', considering the big picture yet she maintains attention to detail...”

PERSHORE

- 2020

We've used Sue mainly for her advice, rather than her full design and project management service, which we would choose next time frankly. The value with Sue is not simply her fine design skill and colour sense, it's her ability to grasp quickly how the space is going to be used and come up with practical ideas and layouts”

Sue was careful to listen to what I wanted, which gave me confidence in my own style...

Bungalow Reconfiguration
Bungalow Reconfiguration
The front door was poorly located resulting in a dark, awkward living room, a cramped kitchen and no space for a dining table. Relocating the front door, establishing a porch, moving a wall, raising a ceiling beam, introducing new windows and redesigning the layout has resulted in well-functioning, light-filled, welcoming spaces.

Current Projects... A luxury ensuite within a beautiful Regency period home, previously a store-room.  A light-filled reconfiguration of all the living areas within an extended bungalow.  The semi-vaulted and serene master bedroom of Willow Tree. A family bathroom with a new layout and an industrial vibe.  A remodelled kitchen with bespoke new cabinetry, banquette seating and a contemporary interpretation of the shaker style... ....
