Testimonials

Thanks Caroline. It was great working with you again!

I’ve now had Interiors in Focus work on two of my kitchens (Birchgrove and Hunters Hill), and also a lot of interior design at those houses.

I highly recommend bringing Interiors in Focus on board for your project.

Caroline is creatively fantastic with beautiful vision aligned to what I asked for – style and budget. She’s also lovely to work with and the trades people she referred me too were equally as professional and easy to work with.

I look forward to our next project!

We hired this company to remove our old, dark kitchen and to design and create a brighter, lighter kitchen with better use of the limited space available.

Using her vast experience Caroline designed a beautiful kitchen using state of the art technology and respectfully suggesting the installation of long, soft shutting drawers, a large pantry, plenty of work surfaces and a long bench sufficient to seat all of our large family.

This was a task many thought would not be possible. Throughout this project Caroline and her tradesmen were polite, respectful and very professional. All deadlines and budgets were met, the quality of the work was outstanding and the whole process was stress-free.

Caroline and her ‘team’ were both extremely knowledgeable and helpful and created a beautiful working kitchen that I am very proud to show to our friends..

We are extremely happy with our new kitchen and we wouldn’t hesitate to use Caroline and her team for any other house projects that we may have in the future.

I wanna begin by saying that it was an absolute pleasure to work with Caroline. My wife and I hired her to design a major renovation of my apartment, which included a full kitchen, bathroom and laundry redo, repaint and re-carpet throughout. We also asked her to manage the renovation as well.

We immediately found her to be very knowledgeable, organised and down to earth – definitely very easy to deal with and super accommodating. She has a great relationship with her tradies and found us great products at fantastic prices – she bargained hard for us! Caroline is super enthusiastic, and always delivered on time throughout each phase of the project – in fact we were able to finish earlier than planned which was a big bonus for us.
She listened to what we wanted and did her best to give us as many options to choose from as possible. She never rushed us and always gave us great advice to guide us through our choices. My old and tired apartment was totally reborn again.

I am super happy with the result and have already recommended her to some of our friends and wouldn’t hesitate to hire her again.

Thank you very much again Caroline, we had a blast!

Dear Caroline,

I’ve written this recommendation of your work to share with other LinkedIn users.

Details of the Recommendation: “Caroline was recommended to us by friends who used her design service to translate kitchen ideas into a blueprint for vendors and cabinet makers to work from. Caroline did more than translate our ideas into plans, she brought great ideas and helped us to think practically about how a kitchen needs to function not just look like. Caroline’s service saved us a lot of time and effort and helped us get the kitchen we wanted. Highly recommended!!!”

By nature Caroline is friendly and approachable so we immediately felt at ease with her. She is easy to talk to and she listens attentively. When Caroline designed our kitchen and bathroom she took the few ideas we had, accommodated them in her plans, made them practical and then expanded them well beyond anything we ever imagined was possible.
Caroline’s designs are thorough and detailed, it is evident that she enjoys what she does and takes great pride in the product and services she provides. Her precise planning ensured that the tradesmen were well informed. Caroline also communicates very well with the tradesmen. As we have no experience in this field, my partner and I were relieved and impressed at how concisely information was explained. This ensured that the transition from planning to construction was fluent and stress free. Added to this, Caroline often checked in with us and the builder throughout the jobs so see check on progress. If she wasn’t happy with something, she would let the tradesmen know and made sure changes were made.
Caroline was flexible with her time. She managed to work around our schedules to find suitable times to meet.
The service Caroline offers goes beyond designing and planning. She offered recommendations, provided us with samples to view. Caroline gave educated advice when shopping for kitchen appliances and bathroom fittings. She further negotiated best prices with the sales assistants.

With Caroline as your designer you can rest assured knowing you have a talented expert who is committed to excellence. In the end we have a unique creation that is better than either of us could have imagined on our own.

We engaged Caroline to design our new kitchen. Our old kitchen was 35 years old so we had definite ideas, or so we thought, about what we wanted in our new kitchen. Caroline was able to show us many new kitchen innovations that she incorporated into her design. Her eye for detail meant that we ended up with a far better kitchen layout than we had hoped for.
Her drawings were so complete that kitchen manufacturers could quote without any further queries.

We thoroughly enjoyed dealing with Caroline throughout the process of designing our kitchen. She was always very enthusiastic and brought with her a wealth of experience and ideas. We also appreciated her attention to detail.
Caroline listened to what we needed and provided us with many practical options to consider.
She worked within our time frame and budget constraints in order to create a kitchen design that we really love! We have already recommended her to many of our family and friends.

By Jeanette Rocca, Denistone East

Caroline, who was referred to us by a friend, initially did our design for our kitchen and additional storage in the laundry, bathroom and hallway, and bookcase in the spare room. We were very impressed and happy with her ideas, detailed design and suggestions during the presentation.

We decided to ask Caroline to project manage her design, and very happy in the end product. Renovations are never easy and ours were complicated by being an apartment with only one functioning lift, and the many gotchas we did not expect along the way. Nothwithstanding, Caroline and the team worked through this and delivered an outstanding outcome.

We would be happy to recommend Caroline for future designs and renovations. We especially would like to praise her cabinet maker and Caesar stone builder, who did an outstanding job.

Caroline, from Interiors Infocus has in depth experience in designing kitchens, including presenting pictures of the planned kitchen from many perspectives.
Cooperatively assisting us to vary the first draft plan, she honed the kitchen design to our satisfaction.
Once the family agreed on the final plan, Caroline produced the detailed plan and specifications for the kitchen builders to quote for construction and installation.
These plans helped in selecting the kitchen company as they all quoted against the same plan for our kitchen.
Caroline’s experience and attention to detail was evident to the kitchen cabinet company we selected to build and install our dream kitchen.
We’ve received many compliments on our new kitchen, thanks to Caroline’s help and understanding of our requirements.
Caroline’s invaluable experience from the appliances, storage solutions and cabinetry resulted in a kitchen the whole family is pleased to use.

Caroline’s experience, patience and eye to detail was instrumental in turning our dream kitchen into a reality. Visitors to our home have all used one word to describe their first impression and that is “wow”.

Caroline has a friendly, easy going nature and her extensive experience in design helped us to clearly see what could be achieved. Her advice and guidance was invaluable.

The laundry was also renovated and redesigned at the same time. We are delighted with the result of both projects. Thank you Caroline.

Caroline is also highly skilled at working with your ideas ensuring she incorporates your vision into the design and final product while at the same time making pragmatic and sensible suggestions based on her experience.

Highly recommended!

Caroline was delight to work with – she made what could have been difficult job extremely pleasant and satisfying. I live in a rather remote area but that did not phase Caroline – she has made numerous site visits before and during the works to ensure all is as it should be.

She keenly listens to what I am after, providing excellent suggestions that helped me realise my vision…

Caroline focused her expert and experienced eye on my ideas and together we created a beautiful kitchen that functions beautifully. She also assisted on design ideas for bathrooms and other areas of the house.

My small but highly functional laundry and storage would not have come into being without Caroline’s clever viewing of the space and its possibilities.

Caroline has been a real asset to this project.
