Boarding Houses
Interior Design & Refurbishment

Comfortable, happy and inspirational places to live, work and grow

Boarding Success

When it comes to your boarding houses, parents and students are discerning.

Boarding houses are an important part of the decision making process when selecting a school and the chances are that parents and students will visit a number of boarding schools to really get a ‘feel’ as to whether their sons and daughters would be comfortable, happy and inspired whilst living there.

School boarding house design is a delicate balance between home and school. It is important to ensure your students feel safe and welcome.

Our designs for your boarding house will add value in an elegant yet mature style and make your boarding house an attractive proposition for students of any age.

Make their home from home

School boarding houses should be thought of as a home from home, yet be durable enough to withstand extensive daily use.

Our school boarding house design service offers you the experience of specialist school environment design with quality sturdy furniture for prolonged use.

We apply creative touches to help ensure your students’ boarding experience is the best that it can be.
