Connection is one of the biggest elements that houses in need of modernisation lack. They are usually made up of several disproportionate sized rooms, each meant for it’s own defining function, isolated from each other. The problem is this layout doesn’t suit how we want to live today. We want our homes to be social, multi functional spaces that allow us to communicate and connect better with the people around us. By correcting the four space planning design fundamentals, flow, functionality, circulation and connection, Eleanor unlocks the full potential of your outdated home, making the best use of your space to delivery the BEST design option.

The #1 cause of budget over runs when renovating your home is when homeowners rush into the design phase before completing their research and analysis. This research benefits both the homeowner and designer as each get a better understanding of eachother before decisions have to made. When this upfront research is not completed, communication is lost and assumptions are made, resulting in a misdiagnosis and resulting in the most costly long term mistake people can make, having to settle for the wrong design. This reconfiguration outlines the danger of how you can be misdiagnosed the wrong design when you do not understand how your layout will work for you.

What People Are Saying

We had decided to build an indoor-outdoor kitchen and socialising room, but we were struggling to get a good layout and flow for the space. Eleanor was able to look at the space with fresh eyes. She listened carefully to our requirements and was then able to guide us towards a practical and workable solution. We are about to start the build, and I am confident that the space is going to function well for our family.
Without Eleanor’s help and outside perspective, I think we would never have moved out of the planning stage. Eleanor has a gift for looking at spaces and seeing all of the possibilities. She can then help you to visualise how the space will look so that you can be confident in your decisions.
I wholeheartedly recommend Eleanor.

Kate Hatherell

Living in a 2 bedroom apartment with 3 children is not easy. We were living in the middle of a mess every day and evening, the living area was closing in on us and it was getting me down. Eleanor from came to our rescue and all it took was one consultation and there was light, we took her advice and we have never looked back, it’s amazing how the little things can make a big difference.
Thank you Eleanor, you are AMAZING and your service is top quality, we’d highly recommend you and can’t wait until we meet again!

Louise McGovern

Eleanor did a fantastic job of designing our new kitchen. She devised a clever and functional design that made full use of the space available and radically improved the flow of the room, whilst still meeting our storage needs. We are delighted with the kitchen and couldn’t be happier with how well it works. Eleanor was professional, efficient and helpful throughout the process and we would absolutely recommend her.

Rebecca Syme

Where to start, from our first chat with Eleanor right up to presentation day we could not have asked for more. Professional, friendly, knowledgeable and forthcoming with ideas and suggestions. Eleanor took our ideas and was in a position to show us a visual of what we could achieve. We would have no hesitation in recommending Cobelis for any of your design/redesign needs.
