TestimonialsSome kind words from our clients at DesignSpace.es
Super modern and just fantastic
I worked with Design Services Marbella on a complete renovation of my apartment in San Pedro which I had purchased in the early 2000’s and which had become very dated. Andrew and the team, working in partnership with an excellent local builder MS Property for the heavy construction work, did an absolutely superb job from start to finish. The standard of craftsmanship was first rate, the ideas and creativity fantastic and most importantly in my opinion, nothing was ever a problem. The team was very flexible and even when I made changes along the way, it was never a problem. The finish is open plan, super modern and just fantastic and I couldn’t be more delighted with it, nor can I recommend them highly enough. Even months after completion when I need anything further, the team are always available to help and give new ideas.
We are super happy
We are super happy with the work you have done. Both on the terrace and the bathrooms. We call when it’s time for a new kitchen. Greet Andrew and the guys for a job well done!
Great team, they use high quality materials but moreover great post sales service. Highly recommendable!
Recent ons appartement laten verbouwen onder leiding van Andrew en Mihaela van Design Space.
Verschillende aspecten zorgen ervoor dat dit voor ons een erg aangename ervaring is; vanuit België werden we perfect op de hoogte gehouden van de bouwwerken in Marbella, door het ontvangen beeldmateriaal werd onze drang als maar groter om na een krachtige maar korte renovatieperiode ons pareltje te bewonderen. Het resultaat was zoals beloofd, afwerking en materialen ten top!
Heb je zelf ook verbouwingsplannen dan is Andrew en zijn team een echte aanrader op alle vlak!
Very good advise in making our choice
We have used Design Space 5 years ago for our new kitchen in our house and we were and still are very satisfied. Andrew and his staff made sure that there were no issues in adapting to the constructions works and he also gave us very good advise in making our choice of furniture and equipment. Based on this experience we ‘used’ Design Space again for two kitchen remodels this year and although this was a completely different style and budget, he managed to offer and build us the kitchens in an excellent way. It is also important to know that they are doing a fantastic after sales service, if needed. Without any hesitation, I can recommend Design Space for a state-of-the-art well priced kitchen design, construction and servicing of the kitchen. Andrew and his team also deserve our gratitute for handling all possible issues with care and dedication.
Very professional, ethical and totally trustworthy
We have used Design Space for 2 new kitchens and a house conversion. The first kitchen is modern with the latest fantastic appliances, all supplied and fitted by the team at Design Space. The second kitchen very ‘Spanish style traditional”. Andy and Michaela are very professional, ethical and totally trustworthy. They dealt with licences, design and supply of good. Their team of kitten fitters, builders etc are very hard working, efficient and do a great job. We have had a great experience with the Design Space team and recommend then to anyone for all styles of kitchens, bathrooms and house conversions.
With great attention to detail
Fitting a new kitchen in Spain felt like a daunting project when based in the UK. From our first meeting with Andrew from Design Space we felt very comfortable and the whole process from design to completion went very smoothly, with great attention to detail, excellent workmanship, which resulted in a kitchen to be proud of. It was a pleasure working with Andrew and Mihaela.
I wil go on working with them in the future
When I decided to renovate my penthouse, I went to Design Space and discussed the workes with Andrew & Mihaela. From the beginning there was a pretty good communication and understanding. At first I wanted to change the kitchen, but finally I did much more to renovate the penthouse and I was very pleased with the result. A satisfied client and I wil go on working with them in the future if any work has to be done.
Tidy and professional, on-time and on-budget!
I would strongly recommend Andy and the team at Design Space to anyone looking to upgrade a kitchen and bathrooms to a modern and contemporary style. Within a few minutes of assessing our needs, Andy understood exactly what we were looking for and submitted 3 design choices, one of which completely reformed our kitchen into an open-plan breakfast area giving us a significant improvement in light and space. The design and installation was overseen by Andy through to snagging and his team were courteous, tidy and professional, on-time and on-budget!
The work was completed both within budget and timeframe
I approached Andrew and Mikaela at Design Space regarding the renovation of my penthouse property in San Pedro, Marbella. I was looking for a complete overhaul to modernise the apartment; new kitchen, bathrooms, bedroom / lounge furniture, flooring, decorating, lighting, infact pretty much everything!
From the very initial conversations I had with them, they were extremely professional and reassuring. The project would be a significant investment and I wanted to ensure I had appointed the right company to carry out these works.
They visited my apartment where we discussed the full brief and I followed up with several visits to their showroom to select the specific products. A design document was prepared showing what the property would look like when completed. This was very detailed and allowed me to ensure what I had planned for my home had been included.
The works were undertaken in a well planned and coordinated approach, ensuring that the work was completed both within budget and timeframe.
I would strongly recommend that whether you are looking to just buy a kitchen, bathroom or a full home design, to speak with Design Space. You will not be disappointed!
Everything was completed on time
After seeing the new kitchen and bathrooms Design Space had fitted in our friends apartment we immediately drove down to the showroom to discuss our requirements with Andrew Oliver.
His design has totally transformed our kitchen to a contemporary, light, open plan layout with a breakfast bar area which we are thrilled with. The new bathroom is fabulous, the tiling is of the highest standard.
Andrew also organised for our dark, dated lounge/dining furniture to be re sprayed a contemporary light grey colour. The finish is excellent and was so much cheaper than replacing it all.
The quality of the workmanship in all areas is excellent, everything was completed on time and we were regularly updated by photographs being emailed to us. We had no qualms about leaving a key and having the work done whilst we were home in the U.K. They even organised our apartment to be cleaned before we arrived back to inspect everything.
We are so pleased with the service we have received from Andrew & Mihaela that we will be booking to have our en-suite renovated and fitted bedroom furniture to be designed and installed.
furniture to be designed and installed.
Professional and Exceptional Service
The services of Andrew Oliver and his team at Design Space have our highest recommendations. With exceptional willingness to resolve details with friendliness, respect for client interests and a unique depth of professional expertise, they excel. As architects and designers, our aesthetic and functional desires were met with attention to every detail in a timely, helpful and friendly manner.
We visited multiple showrooms to select a designer and contractor for our project. From the impromptu moment we visited the handsome DS showroom, we began sourcing materials and finishes, and continued to be advised with our increasing trust through every design phase. From the first meeting and site visit, through the final beautiful installation, surprisingly this seamless process occurred primary across the Atlantic from San Pedro to Chicago. We recommend most highly the Design Space team to achieve exceptional design solutions of the highest quality and professional standards.
We took Design Space for our new kitchen and terrace floor in our apartment in Lomas del Marques, Benahavis in March 2018. Andrew, Mihaela and their team did a wonderful job. Andrew came exactly on time for all the meetings. The work was done on time while we were at home in Belgium and the budget was respected. They managed the work exceptionally well and the communication was perfect. The small changes and extra details we asked were executed perfectly. We are 100 % satisfied with the result and we can recommend them without any hesitation
Our experience with Design Space Marbella is all over very good and we are very pleased with the way delivery and the installation was done.
Installation was always done at the agreed time, and if parts were damaged and/or missing this was quickly corrected to our fullest satisfaction.
You did a wonderful job and were very efficient. If there were problems the after service was great – this is very important.
Initially we came to Design Space for a new kitchen. We were so impressed with the service that we went on to use them for a full property refurbishment. We were based in the UK and Andrew and Mihaela project manged everything for us exceptionally well. The initial quotes and timing were all honoured and they went above and beyond what we could have expected. I can recommend them without hesitation.
It is easy for me to give you our feedback in connection with your part of the refurbishment in our house in Pueblo de las Brisas! We have been, in all respect, 100 % satisfied with your work. You have every time delivered the right products on time, you have arrived exact on time to all our meetings and you have been reliable and trustworthy all the way in connection with the refurbishment. I therefore are more than willing to recommend you to other people who are in need for your service!
We bought a townhouse in Aloha Pueblo in October 2016. The house had a separate kitchen, and we wanted to open up the kitchen to the living room, install a new kitchen and equipment, open up the kitchen to the garden and build a small Juliet balcony.
Our broker, recommended Design Space /Andrew Oliver from previous experience and Design Space /Andrew Oliver was engaged.
We are very pleased with the work, the process and the result. In particular; – Design Space /Andrew Oliver obtained all necessary permits which for us had been problematic – We could correspond in English. – Since we are living in Norway, everything had to be remote controlled. We had a very good communication with Design Space /Andrew Oliver in this respect. – Always a swift, patient and polite response-time on our many requests and questions. -The quality seems good. -It was important for us that the work was completed before 1 March 2017, which it was. -The result was even better than expected!
We were very pleased with your firm’s work for our new kitchen in Sotogrande! The whole process, led by Andrew and Mihaela, was very professionally done, and the choices we were presented with were complete and attractive. The pricing was steep but we understand that it is of high quality – and we know that in the end you get what you pay for! The work itself was done in a timely fashion , and you kept to the schedule and completed the job in time. Overall, we are very happy, and we would give you guys 10 out of 10! Job well done! Many thanks and kind regards
Jeg ble kontaktet av Andrew hos Design Space som lurte på om jeg hadde mulighet til å gi dem en anbefaling. Jeg har benyttet dem til å levere kjøkken til meg privat, samt overfor en rekke kunder, og kan absolutt anbefale dem. Produktene er av god kvalitet og er fornuftig priset. I tillegg, og kanskje noe av det viktigste for meg, er at de leverer en god tjeneste til rett tid. Videre har de vært veldig behjelpelige med etterjusteringer og tilleggsbestillinger. Jeg kan absolutt anbefale dem.
I used Design Space for our apartment in Puerto Banus. Andrew and his team delivered in all aspects of the kitchen design and installation.
They listened carefully to our brief and designed a stunning kitchen that fits perfectly with our needs as a family. The process was dealt with efficiently and professionally. I would absolutely recommend Design Space to anyone looking for a kitchen in the south of Spain
We purchased a property in Spain, which had a separate kitchen which was not to our taste as we wanted an open-plan layout which involved building work and alterations to the ceiling, as you can imagine as we are not permanent residents, it was important to find a supplier who we could trust to supply and install a high quality kitchen in our absence.
We visited a number of kitchen suppliers in the area, but from the moment we entered the Design Space showroom we felt comfortable, Andy and Mihaela assisted without any sales pressure and we agreed pricing and proceeded with the order.
We had a specific time frame for the work to be completed and Design Space organised their builders to remove the walls make good and install the new kitchen, we were kept informed of progress with updated images of the works, I can say that nothing was too much trouble for Design Space we always and continue to feel like a valued customers.
We would have no hesitation in using Design Space in the future or recommending them, I can confirm that customer service is alive and well
My husband and I purchased our dream home in Spain four years ago. Since that time I’ve been longing to update the small, dark kitchen into something fit for the rest of the property. Our bad experience of previous building projects in the UK was our only deterrent.
Finally we decided to go ahead. We agreed that we must find a company with experience, good products, an established team, and above all excellent project management, as we knew from experience that we hadn’t the necessary skills to direct the process ourselves.
We found Design Space, Marbella, in San Pedro, by chance. We browsed around the showroom and liked what we saw. We were treated with professional curtsey, and decided to progress to the next stage.
The head designer visited our property, listened carefully to my ideas and came up with some sensible suggestions. Measurements were taken and a further appointment made at the showroom to view a design.
This subsequent appointment confirmed me in the opinion that Design Space had grasped my requirements fully. Meanwhile we visited a couple of other companies and underwent a similar process. We arranged for the two main competitors to visit our property along with the builder who would be responsible for the structural reform.
We decided to choose Design Space for our project, not because they were the cheapest, but because we had faith in the suitability of the design, the integrity of the product, and because we were convinced that the builder and the project manager had a long established track record of undertaking this particular type of project.
Our trust has not been disappointed. Work started exactly on schedule and completed slightly earlier than predicted. At each stage of the demolition and build we were informed of progress, and when we returned to view we were impressed by the quality of the workmanship. The next stage was to fit the kitchen units. Again these arrived from the factory, in Germany, on schedule and were fitted speedily and expertly.
During the process there only occurred two minor issues, both of which were dealt with speedily and without question.
We moved back in slightly before the scheduled date for completion, and have been happily ensconced ever since in a light, bright, massively spacious living space. To say that we are happy with the result would be an underestimation.
I only write reviews if I am very pleased or very disappointed. I volunteered to provide this glowing testimonial for Andrew and his team because I believe in giving praise where it is due, and also to help others to make a decision in confidence that they will not be ripped off, or be provided with a substandard job. Thank you Design Space!
We are just delighted with the new kitchen. You did such a good job when we first came in with understanding just what material we wanted and showing us exactly one that suited. Everything is in the right place and we have PLENTY of space. What a difference!! It really was a pleasure to work with all of you. I was charmed by your crew of workmen and thought that they were all such nice, pleasant, helpful people. It was the best it could be for being without a sink for six weeks!!! Very fond regards
I have worked with both Andy & Mihaela at Design Space for the past 5 years & they offer a prompt, courteous and professional service. They have provided great support in a variety of areas & helped resolve many issues that have arose during this time. I would highly recommend their services.
Máxima satisfacción por el servicio prestado,el producto adquirido y la atención de Mihaela y Andrew
Andy at Design Space could not have been more efficient and helpful. He always replied to my emails promptly and as my kitchen was being done long distance ie myself over in England and occasionally being in Spain, I cannot fault the service. Andy always kept his appointments, the workmanship was excellent and any faults, which were minimal, were replaced/ rectified as quickly as possible. He sent photographs to show me the kitchen and had very good ideas of how to maximise space etc
I would not hesitate to recommend your company and Andy to anyone.
