Ace Your Space is a home design and space planning company that helps home owners to make the most of whatever space they have.

We are known for designing homes that feel spacious yet contain more storage than you would think is possible.

For many years I have had an interest in gardens and garden design but my interest in interiors only began when I was looking to address issues with my own home.

As someone who prefers to research prior to making decisions I found my attention drawn to the works of Sarah Susanka who shows people how to design homes to be more functional and feel more welcoming without making the house bigger.

I could see how well those ideas work in particular for those looking to downsize or rightsize their homes and so “You Just…” was born.

I started my career as an accountant and risk manager where I found most pleasure in finding ways to reorganise things to solve problems. This business background still serves me well. I can pay immense intention to detail while still seeing the bigger picture. As an accountant and risk manager I understand the importance of setting and managing budgets, and of planning for the future.
