Lauren was fantastic at helping us design our dream kitchen! We were overwhelmed with all the different options and solutions when it came to an efficient but stylish kitchen design.
Lauren spent a lot of time discussing our ideas with us, developing them to be both practical and visually appealing, as well as offering features we wouldn’t have even considered ourselves. She understood what we wanted and worked hard to deliver exactly what we had envisioned (and more!!). She played the role of our voice of reason when it came to choices that would impact the flow of our kitchen and in the end delivered options that met both our expectations and fundamental spacing requirements that ensured our new kitchen would actually be able to be used.
I would highly recommend Lauren to anyone who is looking to design or renovate their kitchens. She brought an immense amount of knowledge into our planning stage which we will always be so grateful for.
We have achieved a kitchen design that we will be happy with for many years to come!”

Thanks for your help on our project – we’ve been happy with the service and glad we went through the process as the end result is very different from our initial ideas!!”
Ryan P, Cockle Bay
Using Lauren to draft my kitchen plan ideas was fun and extremely useful. Lauren had great ideas, was very prompt and communicative and nothing was too much trouble. As I wanted to use less conventional materials and sizing, having Lauren draft my plans documented my design requirements clearly. This allowed me to get three quotes direct from manufacturers and with one quote coming in at $30,000 more than the other two, this potentially saved me a huge amount of money for the same kitchen!
Lauren was friendly, knowledgeable and added huge value to the design process. I highly recommend Lauren’s drafting skills, especially if you want to visualise and specify your own design ideas.”

We own a hair salon and needed a set of custom cabinetry for speciality salon basin fittings, hair stations and a kitchenette/bar. We needed someone with expertise in high end kitchen design. After recreating our space in 3D software, Lauren took us through the decision making process step by step with precision laser measurement and a lot of options.
We were able to make the most of the space that we have and avoided all the pitfalls thanks to Lauren. She’s very well connected working with the best in custom cabinetry manufacture and installation. We could not be happier with the final result.”
Neal Thompson, Takapuna
Lauren helped us design our new kitchen and I can thoroughly recommend her to anyone contemplating the new kitchen project. Getting the design advice from a specialist was a great experience. We knew that what we heard was completely independent. We got so many ideas and suggestions from Lauren from her rich experience of many design projects, which we would never have thought of no -matter how many showrooms we visited.
The plans were great, the 3D images also really helped us to visualise how it would look. All our requests were turned around very quickly. Overall, awesome service!”

Central Joinery have been working with Lauren for over 8 years. This is because we find her to be a diligent and practical designer, which works well for us as she is able to design across all spectrums of our business. Central Joinery not only offers precision-made, great looking and highly functional cabinetry for the commercial sector; we also manufacture custom-made residential cabinetry of the highest, professional standard. This means Lauren is able to either meet our clients on site to discuss their unique design requirements or, design off plans and sketches we provide.
Her years of experience and background in cabinetry construction mean that her designs are continuously functional as well as aesthetically pleasing. Her confident and bubbly nature means we are always happy for her to represent our company when dealing directly with our customers.
We look forward to continuing to work with her and would not hesitate to recommend her.”
When we embarked on the journey of launching our very own day spa; we needed someone to provide us with detailed, working drawings in order to have furniture manufactured overseas. Lucky for us we got to work with Lauren.
Right from the beginning Lauren asked all the right questions to ensure she provided us with accurate drawings and an accurate quote. It also meant there were no surprises at the end. Once the project commenced; Lauren was very efficient with delivery and also on point with her communication. The drawings were exactly what we needed to pass onto our designer to get to the end product. Thank you Lauren for your time, effort and professionalism, we look forward to working with you again soon.”
Marton Lee are a well established and respected manufacturer of mid to top end cabinetry with a particular emphasis on kitchens. We have chosen to contract Lauren to provide a design service to those of our clients who do not have their own architect or interior designer. In this role she has undertaken a number of projects and has shown herself to be a very capable kitchen designer. She has consistently combined practicality with design flair and has on occasions been able to work to demanding deadlines.
Her years of experience coupled with pleasant personality has allowed her to build rapport with our clients and to navigate a process that combines ‘realising client’s dreams whilst recognising financial constraints’
We look forward to working with her on many future projects and have no hesitation in recommending her.”
If you’re about to redo your kitchen and bathroom or starting from scratch, you need Lauren. So easy to deal with, always there for you and goes out of her way to make sure you get what you need. Thanks Lauren for making our dream kitchen a breeze. Extremely happy.”
