Services

Who uses Lifesize Plans?

Lifesize Plans can be used for both commercial and residential projects whether they are a new build, renovation or extension project. 

Who can come to my walkthrough?

We only do one walkthrough at a time so clients can bring people with them that will help with decision making. Some clients come alone and some come with their project team. 

What furniture is available to use during my walkthrough?

  • Walls
  • Kitchen units (various sizes)
  • Kitchen islands (various sizes) 
  • Kitchen table and chairs 
  • Beds (single, double and superking)
  • Toilet, bath, sink
  • Couches (armchairs, 2 seater and 3 seater)
  • Nursery furniture ( cot, changing table)

All furniture and walls are on wheels so can easily be moved to try different layouts. 

Can I make changes to my design during a walkthrough?

Yes, as all our furniture and walls are on wheels you can try out different layouts using our props. Any changes you want to include will be noted on your plans and emailed to you after your session for discussion with your design team. 

Is it Virtual Reality?

No. Our showroom is a physcial space where we project your floorplans onto the ground at a 1:1 scale. We bring in real furniture and walls which enables the client to walkthrough their home and get a real feel for size and how their home will function and flow once it is finished. 

Pricing

How much does a walkthrough cost?

We price by the size of your project. 

  • Up to 1000 sq.ft. is €497 plus VAT
  • 1001 sq. ft. – 2000 sq. ft is €697 plus VAT
  • 2001 – 4000 sq. ft is €897 plus VAT

Projects above this size are priced on an individual basis. 

For commercial projects there are hourly, half day and full day rates available. 

How long does a walkthrough take?

Every project is different but from the walkthroughs we have completed these are the average times: 

  • up to 1000 sq. ft. takes less than 1.5 hours
  • 1001 sq. ft. – 2000 sq. ft takes less than 2 hours
  • 2001 – 4000 sq. ft. takes approx. 2.5 – hours

Are we good value for money?

Of course we are! Regardless of how big or small your project is, getting it right before you start will provide you confidence and prevent costly and timely changes on site. Every walkthrough we have had in the Showroom have made changes that would have cost multiples of the walkthrough price.

Does my walkthrough price include set up time?

We request all design information to be sent across 48 hours before your walkthrough. Your plans will be displayed before your arrival with furniture and walls in place for your arrival.
