About to renovate a house in Amsterdam and don't know where to start?

About to renovate a house in Amsterdam and don't know where to start?


Starting a renovation in a foreign city, whilst working and dealing with all other responsibilities, can be quite challenging. Although having a nice cosy home is important to you, you tend to get it all over with because of the stress renovating brings.

But what about if you could have your dream home without having to deal with all the stress? 

The concept design plan

Mabel got frustrated seeing the wasted potential of so many houses. So, over the years, she came up with a tangible affordable formula where she helps clients get an overview of their renovation project by making them a concept design plan. By working with the client within an agreed time frame, she creates plans for the ultimate floor plan of their home, provides insight into design options and materialisation, and helps to define the client's personal style. By working with Mabel, you can discover the look and feel of your interior based on your specific needs and budget.

Mabella Artisan plan

A good designer reads the needs and lifestyle of their clients. And sees it as their task to translate that lifestyle into their home.

What to expect?

As a starting point, Mabella Artisans will listen to the client’s needs and dreams in an intake and studies the client's mood board. From there, she takes it to the drawing table, preparing her design ideas for a creative and visual presentation held at their office on the Keizersgracht. They then take on board any feedback from the client, carrying out active brainstorm sessions about materials, colour and styling and help determine the client’s needs and answer their questions.

In these sessions, Mabella will share valuable information and bring the client's imagination to life, as well as proposing lots of samples, examples and good contacts. On top of all that, Mabella Artisans will deliver a detailed drawing with measurements for their client's contractor, a material proposal and a budget description.

Mabella Artisans makes sure that their clients enter the renovation process with an overview of what their house will look like and what needs to be done and bought. Mabella wants them to enjoy the process by supporting the client and supplying them with good drawings, a step-by-step plan, and lots of design tips and tricks and good contacts!
