About Us

Design A Space is an established, independent, design-led consultancy, with an experienced team of  designers bringing together a wealth of ideas and product knowledge.  We are located across two showrooms in the beautiful home counties towns of Amersham and Marlow, Buckinghamshire. 

Our clientele are mainly local, within the home counties and north-west London, but we encourage you to call us to discuss your project no matter where you are located.  We specialise in all aspects of kitchen, bedroom and interior design, to suit every taste, from contemporary through to classic.  No matter what the project, we focus on delivering an exceptionally high, personalised level of service – values which lie at the very heart of our ethos. Indeed, it is our personal service that has resulted in the vast majority of our clients engaging with us by means of personal recommendation.

What’s more, as well as taking enormous pride in how we present our showrooms, the same detail goes in to how we present ourselves online. We are lucky to have been featured on Houzz many times; our projects have been hand picked by interior designers and industry experts for many reasons, ranging from design to practicality. We are also proud to have been awarded numerous ‘Best Of Houzz’ awards; these are for both Design and Service.

Meet The Team

 

We pride ourselves on our reputation for successfully creating beautiful, practical and affordable kitchens, bedrooms and interiors for our clients.  The team is always on hand and ready to answer any questions you may have relating to your proposed project.

Maree Dixon

Director & Designer

For many years, Maree developed individual properties, from small flats through to large private homes, whilst studying interior design part-time and raising her family.  Maree’s passion for design led her to set up her first small showroom in Amersham – a small, kitchen-focused showroom in Amersham.  This was eventually extended into the neighbouring property, at which point the business focus expanded into the area of spatial and interior design – something which her clients were frequently requesting she undertake.  This was followed by the opening of a further showroom in Marlow, at which point bedroom design was officially added to Design A Space’s portfolio.

Over the years, Maree has built up a strong base of satisfied clients including both private clients and local builders, who repeatedly recommend her to family, friends and their own clients so that they can capitalise on her enthusiasm, design skill, product knowledge, and expertise.

Setu Manani

Spatial Planner/Interior Designer

Setu’s family has a long history of working within the engineering and architectural areas of building design, so her degree in Interior Architecture was a natural step for her, in achieving her own career goals. At Design A Space, we champion the importance of achieving a successful flow within any living or commercial space, and spatial planning is one of Setu’s specialisms within the business. She also becomes involved in bringing together interior schemes, lighting designs and product specification for our clients.

Andrea Williams

Accounts and Administration

Andrea has worked within the area of accounts and administration for many years and by her own admission, thoroughly enjoys working with figures.  She also has a genuine interest in design, being an eternal home improver, which makes Design A Space the perfect workplace. She is a great support to the design team, as by means of her carrying out the multiple administrative tasks involved in any kitchen project,  the designers are then free to focus on what they do best – design.
