Construction-free design also encourages more creativity and individuality in the design itself. Clifton noted that those designs are not about re-designing a space anymore. It is about how to decorate the interior in ways that could increase spaces and make a living space suitable to the clients. Create designs that could fit the clients’ styles of living is essential. For example, clever use of different colors on walls as well as lighting could enhance characterization in design as well as living space. Clifton noted that instead of wallpapering the entire room, the use of feature walls could be a nice choice. Also, the use of Philips’ color-changing, mood altering Hue in replace of a single light source for a room could create a different mood and style to the interior space.
In recent years, Clifton has given construction-less design treatment to various projects. In one project for a small flat, he exploited the simple yet detailed Zen style concept as he used a raised floor to increase more bedroom space. From concept to completion of construction, one project only takes few months. It is time saving as well as cost saving to the clients.
