DESIGNATE’S services are unique as all projects are undertaken by a designer who is qualified as both an Occupational Therapist and an Interior Designer. Elaine is an expert at sourcing products – from furniture and soft furnishings through to fixtures and fittings. She advises on décor, colour, paint, and wall coverings, windows, flooring, and lighting. Using her occupational therapy skills Elaine is able to risk-assess the products incorporated in her designs to ensure clients can use them safely.
She understands how the entire spectrum of medical conditions impacts on function. Throughout a project she liaises with the client’s relatives and carers, as well medical staff, architects, builders, project managers and surveyors.
Increasingly Inclusive Design considerations are central to effective domestic design and construction solutions. Working with Elaine provides extra confidence for all involved.
