Mr and Mrs Guthrie, Ventnor, Isle of Wight



 Over the last fifteen years I have had many dealings with the team at Distinctive Designs and have nothing but the highest praise for them all.

They are my first port of all for all my design requirements and I am delighted with all that they have done for me, and have had many compliments from visitors to my home!

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to my friends.  

Mrs Bateman, Bonchurch, Isle of Wight


 Distinctive Designs helped us renew our interior in a very professional manner. Michael and Jill listened to our ideas, came up with their own suggestions and found solutions for every problem we came up with. The work was done to a high standard. We were very impressed by the variety of issues that they dealt with! Our house has ended up looking great. We are especially pleased with the result being a combination of our own ideas and visions and the professional suggestions from, and execution by, Distinctive Design.
