From initial home design ideas to recommendations for trades and suppliers, our Optimise Home team has a wealth of experience you can tap into.
Employing an architect is about much more than hiring someone who will provide a great design. A good architect, who is experienced in home design, will save you money and guide you through the process every step of the way.
We realise that many people just don’t have the budget to engage an architect to see their project through to completion. To make architect’s services more accessible, we created Optimise Home. Our service is not only a cost-effective way to get architectural advice, but our proven plan gives our customers peace of mind that they are making the best possible decisions for their home with what they have to spend.

Denise is passionate about how a well designed home can have an extraordinarily positive affect on our lives. But she understood that many people planning a home renovation or extension project didn’t have the budget to engage an architect.
So in an attempt to make architects services avalible to everyone. Optimise Home was born.

“I worked with Optimise Home to modernise our living room, which had become tired and in need of a serious revamp. From my very first contact I knew I was in safe hands. Their ideas totally transformed the room, and to say we are beyond delighted with the end result is an understatement. I personally saved time trying to source the items myself. We now have a room that we love and are proud to bring family and friends into. Working with Optimise Home was one of the best decisions I have made.”Paula
“Our experience with Optimise Home was immensely positive and exceeded our expectations. We engaged with Optimise to reconfigure and extend our kitchen and living space. They really listened to everything we wanted from our space. It was so helpful to see our design in 3D. It meant that we could visualise how the space would work for us. Overall, we really enjoyed working with Optimise Home. We would have no hesitation in recommending them.”Jill & OwenKildare
