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.  Our showroom is located in the beautiful town of Amersham, 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 showroom, 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 for both Design and Service.

We’re proud to be members of the KBSA; this is very much the gold-standard of accreditations in the Kitchens, Bedrooms and Interiors industry. This gives our clients peace of mind, knowing that we abide by the best possible standards in terms of design, service and installation.

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.  After just a few years, Design A Space 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.  In 2017, built-in bedroom design became a further focus within 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.
