Kees and Carol, Bucklands Beach


Project overview

The clients bought this property with a view to renovating the entire house.  Their priority was to incorporate timber for richness and warmth while creating a kitchen with a fresh, modern influence.

My areas of input were the kitchen, laundry, ensuite and guest bathroom vanities.

A modern contemporary look was decided on while maintaining the use of traditional materials including natural oak timber with a horizontal groove to cabinetry, and granite to tops. These materials were also used in their laundry and bathrooms for continuity.

In addition, painted and also frosted glass set into aluminum frames was included to lighten and modernize the kitchen area.

What Customers have to say

This letter is in regards to the work that Nicola has done for us in designing a complete new kitchen for our home which we renovated over a 12 month period in 2011.

We found her approach to be of a very high professional standard and she has a great depth of knowledge in Kitchen design. She was very open to listen to our ideas and transform them into very workable and practical solutions. Her service to us as her clients was outstanding and nothing was too much effort for her.

We were given a set of artist impressions as to the different design options that we could use, and had detailed discussions as to the merit of each one. We now feel that we have a kitchen that takes pride of place in our home, is of a timeless design and quality, and works extremely well for us.

We would certainly use Nicola for any future work that we may have, and recommend her very highly to anybody who needs professional input in kitchen and bathroom design.
