HELEN TURKINGTON INTERIOR DESIGN OPTIONS (All strictly by appointment only)

Helen Turkington is one of Ireland's premier interior designers and over the course of a 25 year career, she has decorated many of Ireland's most famous homes as well as catering for an international clientele. There can be a misconception that hiring an interior designer is an expensive extravagance.  We strongly disagree.  As with any service, hiring the right professional can, in fact, save you money through smart, creative and solutions focused decision making and access to the best trades and suppliers, products and prices.   It can also save you time, risk, disappointment and frustration by avoiding costly mistakes.      Here at Helen Turkington we pride ourselves on providing expert but approachable multi-level design service options to cater for any budget.  Our mission is to work with you to optimise your home’s potential and make you fall back in love with your space.

For décor projects we work on an initial two meetings fee of a minimum fee from €350 (within 10km of store, outside that region travel time and expenses applied) which covers one room in your home.

The first meeting involves calling out to you to see your space and getting to know you, get a feeling of your space and light in the area and to go through what you need.  We also take rough measurements so we can complete quotations for you to give you an idea of costings for a project’s completion.

Following this, about 2 weeks after, we arrange a meeting with you in our studio to go through paints, fabric, lighting, wallpaper, panelling etc. and provide you with a look book/samples.  The content of this meeting all depends on what we feel you needed most urgently after the initial meeting.  Minor adjustments can be made if required in one follow up call (additional work will be charged at the applicable rate).

Please note this does not include any renovation related design such as bathroom design, tiles, wardrobes etc, this falls under a renovation project.

Cost from €350 for one room, payable in advance and non refundable/non redeemable 

Please note any curtain measuring, fitting and any product delivery is charged separately



For renovation projects we charge from €450 (non refundable and non redeemable) an hour for design advice.  Travel time and expenses will be charged for locations outside a 10km radius of our store.  Early involvement is key in any renovation project so we can go through what you need help with in order to complete the shell of the house.  Depending on the length and complexity of the project, we can work out a payment schedule for the fees involved in advance based on our experience with past projects. Please note this is not a project management service.

With all our design services, we can help you as little or as much as you like: it’s your home so we take the lead from you.  Our role is to help you get the desired style, flow and feeling of your home.

Please note we do not provide technical drawings but we can work in tandem with your architect, carpenter, bathroom designer etc, to ensure a consistent design flow and finish.  We can also introduce you to trades people that we have used before on a non liability basis or work alongside your own choice.

Cost from €450 per hour, total fees are on a case by case basis
