At our stores in Hexham, Alnwick & Carlisle we employ a team of Interior Designers who work on both domestic and commercial projects, giving us huge flexibility and a wealth of knowledge about "what is hot" in the Interiors market. Our Designers make regular trips to Chelsea Harbour to keep in touch with all the latest trends, so you know that you will be dealing with a Designer who can give you quality advice.
Our stores are now the largest Interior Design Centres in the North of England, offering a one-stop shop for Furniture, Beds, Carpets, Flooring, Curtains, Blinds and accessories, in inspirational surroundings. Unlike other Designers who will ask you to choose from photographs, we can pull everything together for you to look at and try, and we have the largest single collection of Designer fabrics and wallpapers in the North of England, so we will always be able to find something that will inspire you!
The current collections comprise of over 25,000 fabrics, over 8,000 wallpapers, and over 3500 blinds options, including all of the major brands! We are also Farrow and Ball paint stockists, so you buy your favourite colours off the shelf.
We will provide a hour consultation with one of our designers completely free (in-store only), so if you want to take advantage of this please just give us a call to arrange an appointment.
Alternatively we can visit your home to discuss your requirements, and a charge of £50 per our will be made for this, though any charges will be refunded when an order of £1000 or more is placed.
Our normal hours of business are Monday to Friday 8.30am to 5.30pm, but arrangements can sometimes be made out of these hours if this is not convenient.
Our award-winning Interior Design team have a deserved nationally-recognised reputation for producing outstanding and creative work. They can advise you on everything from a full house including furniture, curtains, blinds and flooring, ensuring that everything works in harmony to create your dream home.
Our designers will not do part of the job and then hand you over to another department, they will work with you on the whole project from start to finish, however large or small the project is.
Neither will they stop at the larger items. Dickinsons can advise on and supply paints, wallpapers, accessories and lighting and we can also recommend suitably skilled decorators and electricians if you are new to the area.
Dickinsons are recognised nationally for their passion, attention to detail, design skills and just as importantly fitting skills. Having won UK Interiors retailer of the year, UK soft furnishings retailer of the year and UK floor fitter of the year as well as being featured in Homes and Gardens for our design excellence, you can be sure that when you receive the trademark Dickinsons warm welcome, you are also in safe hands.
Whilst we do not have a full lighting department we regularly supply lighting to both domestic and contract clients. As an example of this we always supply all of the lighting that goes into our builders showhome projects, and specify lighting for hotels, clubs and offices. The product range available comprises of very contemporary fittings right through to traditional fittings for a stone built farmhouse!
