Design Hub

Bring your ideas to life!

If you're thinking about decorating one room or giving your whole house a makeover, our in-store Design Hub is a great place to start. 

What is Design Hub?


We like to think of our Design Hub as your in-store interior design service. We’ve brought together our extensive ranges of wallpapers, paints, flooring and tiling and have combined them with the latest design technology and our decorating knowledge. This means you can find everything you’ll need for your project in one place, with even more products available at the click of a button.

Our City & Guilds trained consultants


Our qualified decorating consultants can help you in store and occasionally in your own home. They can create personalised mood boards using real swatches of flooring, tiling, wallpaper and paint colours that you can take away to get opinions from your friends and family.

Design your room in store

If you feel like you would like a bit more help styling your room, simply take a photograph and bring it in to a store, with a design hub, on a memory card or USB stick.


Our trained decorating consultants will then help you create a look that compliments your style. We can even print a picture of your design that you can show your friends and family before you get to work.
