ONLINE INTERIOR DESIGN
THE MiD eDESIGN SERVICE
The MiD e-Design service
An online interior design service for clients who are keen to develop and manage their own project at their own pace but with professional advice, concepts and support from Michael Ó Mara Interior Design as backup.
This is a personalised, convenient and affordable solution to working with an interior designer remotely to create your perfect project. This could be your kitchen, bathroom, bedroom or even a mud room.
our service differs from typical edesign services that provide just a mood board. We provide a design concept of your space similar to the ones on the left, with a brief description of suggested finishes.
If you require a more in-depth specification service, consider our Resourcing Add-on.
Consultation & Design
A convenient, affordable and easy option for clients who are not in a location to avail of full service interior design, or for clients who are looking to complete smaller projects at their own pace.
We will develop a personalised design concept of your room/s based on the details provided from the Design & Lifestyle questionnaire (sent to you once an appointment is booked and your preferred services paid for via paypal / Invoice) & online consultation.
We also provide you with the MiD Michael Ó Mara Interior Design & property solutions measurement guide to assist you.
Upon receipt of your answers to the lifestyle questionnaire, your 40 minute Zoom or Whatsapp online consultation shall be arranged at a convenient time for you.
You can also book additional time if you feel it would be required. However if you would like to have a quick 5 minute chat before engaging please give us a call on 00353 1 2846903
From there we will develop a design concept which will incorporate the styles discussed and our suggested finishes & proposed colour scheme. It will also provide you with a general layout and orientation of furniture & fittings to create that perfect flowing contemporary design. This will be presented along with any additional advice in our project documentation. From here, you can take the project forward with a clear vision for your unique space. Alternatively you can expand the service we provide you with our Resourcing service add-on.
Our resourcing service add-on can save you decades of time! It is particularly popular with people who are busy all day and need assistance on sourcing and choosing the perfect materials for their design.
In the Resourcing add-on package, we will prepare a parcel which will include our suggested materials for walls, floors, soft furnishings etc. We will also prepare a list of recommended items and suppliers.
It is important to note that we do not calculate quantities with this service and recommend that your supplier or fitter confirm exact amounts prior to ordering.
We intend to localise as best as possible for your convenience. We will package and post the sample items to you which can then be used as references to finalise your project.
Our CAD (Computer Aided Design) service is for the client that wants even more detail & Design. This can be for a dimension detailed floor plan or a wall elevation such as for fixed furniture or a wall layout, an electrical layout, a kitchen plan or bathroom layout to further inform your chosen trades person as to your design vision.
Our video add-on can significantly enhance your understanding and perception of your new room design. It is an effective tool to experience your interior concept before you start any works and to share it with your contractor & friends. See an example on the left.

The consultation phase of our E Design process involves getting to know you, your style, inspirations and what you want to achieve in your design. We will forward you a brief questionnaire to reply to. Upon receipt of the answers, we will then arrange a convenient appointment for a skype or whatsapp consultation with you to chat and listen to what you wish to achieve and then we’ll get started on your project.
Based on the notes taken from our consultation phase and the information you have provided, our interior design team will start to plan out your design. We will discuss what information we’ve acquired and how we can develop a design based on your preferences. The design will incorporate our suggested furniture layout, colour scheme, flooring & wall treatments.
After the consultation and planning phases, we will get to work creating your bespoke e Design interior design visual concept and plan. We will prepare at least 4 images of your room. If you would like a video version then we can do this too as an additional add-on. What makes our E Design service so great is the ability to visualise your new room design and give you the confidence to start work on it and at your own pace. After all, seeing is believing!
