Barratt Homes Partners with Percy Hedley School Students to Help Create a Show Home

Students from Percy Hedley School have had the chance to help design a room in one of Barratt Home's Show Homes which is set to open in Durham in 2024.

Students from Percy Hedley School have had the wonderful opportunity to use their creative skills and help design a room in one of Barratt Homes’ Show Homes. The objective of this was to aid in helping make homes more accessible and get the student’s views on what they would want a potential home to look like.

In partnership with Barratt Homes, it all began when members from Show Business Interiors visited Percy Hedley School. They explained their jobs as interior designers and helped students pick out what type of room they wanted it to be, what types of furniture and colour they would like.

Show Business Interiors then went and created blueprints based on the design choices of the students. After these were created, the designs were then presented to the Barratt Homes team back at their offices in Gateshead.

Both the team and Percy Hedley School students had two designs to choose from, one with bolder colours and one with calmer tones. In the end they decided to go for the calmer more pastel tones, which will suit the chill out room nicely. There was also plenty room to relax, with blankets, rugs and some sensory objects.

Once construction is completed, students will be invited to be the first to see their finished room.

Show Homes are expected to open at Old Durham Gate, Durham in Spring 2024.
