Looking for a job that combined his love of interiors and working with people, Richard Clark found his perfect match with Plumbs, and interiors and soft furnishing giant that has been transforming homes for generations.
It’s a role that allows him to meet some amazing people, and help them transform their home to match their dreams.
Richard has been a Plumbs home consultant for 15 years – working throughout the Taunton area, offering sofa covers, curtains and reupholstery. What many people don’t realise is how much Plumbs has evolved over that time. It now has ranges for all tastes, from classic, heritage homes to stylish modern looks, with fabrics and textures to suit everyone.
Speaking about his love for the job, Richard said: “What I find most enjoyable is the sheer range of interesting people I meet from walks of life, from a musician to a top business person to a plumber. They are all interesting in their way.”
And it is that connection he makes with clients when they book a free home visit that gets his interior design creative juices flowing.
“It’s always a pleasure to be invited into a home and asked to help upgrade the furniture or curtains, giving pre-loved possessions a new lease of live, and saving the home-owner from having to buy expensive new pieces and disposing of old ones.”
With hundreds of combinations of colours, patterns and textures to choose from, you can reupholster a single footstool or armchair, or opt for a three piece suite makeover. You can choose tailored covers which will transform your existing furniture, or view the huge range of curtains. Whether you want a single statement burst of colour or pattern in an otherwise minimalist room, or you like vibrancy everywhere, Richard can work with you to find your perfect design look.
He particularly enjoys helping at every stage of the design: “What is especially satisfying is, in most cases, is seeing a job go from the design stages of choosing colours and fabrics to seeing the transformation of a completed job.”
Your Spring makeover for less
Booking a home visit in the Taunton area of Somerset is completely free of charge. Richard will visit your home at an agreed time, listen carefully to what you hope to achieve and the budget you have to work with, then make a range of suggestions on colourways that might work.
