With Coronavirus closing hospitality outlets across the UK, many business owners are trying to remain positive and using the unexpected time off from the day to day work to get around to that paperwork or planning how to re-open with a bang.

Now one company has launched a new service for the sector in response to Covid-19. Hospitality owners that want a refresh of their décor, even in time for a grand re-opening, can get started from the safety of their home.

Interior specialists, Design Equals, has launched free online consultations for hospitality business owners to begin their design journey from home.

Any work, including its ‘spring spritz service’, will then be ready to begin as soon as changes to the current UK lockdown permits.

Katie McCarthy, owner and design director said:

“These are extremely tough times for businesses, but we know many people are trying to make the most of a bad situation and we want to support in the best way we can. Our consultations are currently free of charge and free of contact.

“When able to, people are going to want to go flocking back to their favourite bars, restaurants, pubs and coffee shops so why not have them come back to an even better venue with a new and improved look.”

Whether you’re thinking of an interior refresh or you have an entire new concept you want to bring to life, the free consultations cover all levels of investment.

The company also offers a ‘sprint service’ which sees a team of designers working together to quickly refresh an interior, from adding accessories to furniture painting and lighting changes.

Katie added:

“Despite the tough times we are in, if the industry continues to work together, leans on the Government for support and any other support services available to them, then it can come back stronger than ever.”
