Interior Design & Space planning
Some spaces can be challenging, space planning doesn’t just mean working out where furniture fits, it is actually one of the fundamental elements of the interior design process.
If you are after some professional help so that you can use your space most effectively I can come to you and discuss your options. Residential and commercial spaces can sometimes become difficult and frustrating to function within. Families grow, Lifestyles change, businesses become more demanding. Would you benefit from some minor renovations to improve the flow and feel of the internal space? Is the layout of your property not working for you or your lifestyle, your rising number of patrons? Let’s look at your floor plan. I can help your space become more practical, more ambient, better - based on your budget. Do you need some direction when choosing key furniture items, window treatments, decorative accents? Does your space just not feel finished? Would you like me to style your entire home? I am here to help. Let’s book a 2 hour consultation and discuss your concerns.
It’s the busiest room in the house, families gravitate to the kitchen, friends socialise in and around the kitchen. These days kitchens are for much more than just cooking purposes so they deserve the time spent to create a design based on not only aesthetics but also strongly on FUNCTION.
Whether you are renovating an existing outdated kitchen, need a new kitchen for a family home, a commercial kitchen with numerous preparation stations I will ensure your space is practical yet beautiful and timeless. I will employ smart design options to maximise functionality and make effective use of available light and space and other options available.
Deciding to build a new kitchen can be exciting, but also very confusing. So many options and so many decisions to be made. Size, shape, colour scheme, door styles, bench-top materials, splash-back, tapware options and sizes and styles of appliances?
Drawing on my extensive knowledge of ergonomics, space planning and interior design, along with what I know is available on the market today relating to kitchen design - together we will design your dream kitchen. A kitchen that not only meets but exceeds your requirements and expectations.
A space that no one actually likes to clean…. to me bathrooms should be created keeping this fact in mind. I design bathrooms that are clever and beautiful.
Starting from scratch or renovating an existing bathroom? Let’s talk about the best option for you and create a space that you will enjoy from all angles.
I will keep costs down by offering simple yet detailed cabinetry drawings - I don’t spend hours rendering images, although I can if need be. I will present you with floor plans and elevations, a very clear scheme sheet of the selections chosen along with schedules for yourself and trades people.
I understand that working to a budget is extremely important and I have the knowledge to make choices based on the reality of what you want to spend.
Be it functionality or aesthetics that is letting your existing space down.
I can suggest the options you have to update but not completely gut your existing bathroom or ensuite. Are there elements of your existing bathroom that you would like to keep? Do you need new tiles to be selected or a new vanity designed to replace a tired or damaged old one?
Do you need to tweak a certain issue you may have with your bathroom?
Perhaps you just want to know about current trends and what is available on the market today to help make the most out of this space.
I can help.
Laundry, Cabinetry & Custom Joinery
Did you know that Laundries don’t have to be a room anymore? They can actually just be concealed within cabinetry on a wall! Many renovators chose to re-configure their home placing their laundry within a cupboard which in turn allows that left over space to be used for extensions of existing rooms, new ensuites, larger kitchens etc.
Nobody actually enjoys doing laundry, however the key to disliking a laundry less is to keep it as easy and simple as possible.
Functionality is the key to creating a good laundry space, and why not make it beautiful at the same time.
