Designing your home with the customer centric Blu-Lifestyle
The relationship between any kind of designer and client can be challenging. As a client you may or may not have a clear vision of what you want. A good designer will know how to ask the right questions, listen and guide you, so you can both get clear on the project goals. Since you are not a professional designer you will not have thought about all the key aspects of the design process.
A good designer will guide you, inspire you and give you the framework you need to navigate through the design process effectively.

Through good communication and highly professional approach they focus on the clients’ objectives and existing room. In this way they utilise your existing space effectively, bringing in great design, warmth and functionality that works for your family.
Because of their customer centric approach the Blu-Lifestyle team have done a lot of work to smooth out the design process between them and their clients.
1. Thorough consultation and design process
Blu-Lifestyle consultants take you through the scope of your project using
tools like schematic drawings, concept drawings, 3D drawings, look books,
mood boards and elevations. At the early stages of the design process they
make you aware of alternative designs, products and solutions together with
the benefits and weaknesses of these options.
Blu-Lifestyle consultants help you consider design, space usage, furniture,
soft furnishings and fittings. As their client you will have the opportunity to
discuss design customisation and budget requirements throughout the
process so that the balance between design requirements and cost limitations
can be met.
When a design is concluded, final drawings and floor plans are developed so
everyone is clear on the way forward.
2. Clear pricing discussions
Any budget parameters are discussed early on in the consultancy phase so
that client expectations are managed. As the design gets more and more
conclusive cost estimates become more accurate. When specific products are
identified allowance ranges can be established. When the design,
development and final project drawings are agreed a purchase agreement
with product specifications are given to the client for signature. This will
include clearly specific equipment and materials or specific kwacha amount
3. Site survey, delivery and installation
To ensure a smooth delivery process, Blu-Lifestyle project managers carry out
a site survey before delivery and installation. Timelines for installation are
communicated to you in advance. All installations are carried out by qualified
Blu-Lifestyle team members.
4. Inspection and warranty
All products are inspected before installation and come with a 5 year
warranty. Full details of the terms and conditions of the warranty will be
discussed with you.
