Making a Kitchen the Hub of Your Home

Here at Meredith Lee Interior Design, we love to work on all projects, whether it is a renovation, small revamp or new build. We work hard to help you realise your dreams! 

Having a well designed, functional and beautiful kitchen, is a great way to make your life easier and improve the value of your home. We love kitchens that have all the ‘mod cons’, and a style that reflects the personality of the home and those who use the kitchen.

Kitchens are the centre of the home these days, so they need to be beautiful as well as functional. We always make sure there is somewhere for everyone to gather, such as a wide open bench with plenty of stools, and room in the kitchen for everyone to use it without feeling crowded.

We were delighted to contribute to the article recently published on the Bupa Home Insuranc website on the current trends in kitchen design. 'How to Create the Perfect Australian Kitchen' explores the concept that our cooking area is fast becoming the social hub of any home.

"For a contemporary, natural look," Bupa quotes interior designer Meredith Lee, "she recommends a mixture of timber and natural stone, with task, ambient and accent lighting for a beautiful, highly functional kitchen."

We can help you select materials and features to suit the style of your home and how the kitchen is used. We love to include colour and texture to integrate the kitchen seamlessly into the home. Engineered stone such as Caesarstone is particularly popular with our clients for its practicality and there are some beautiful textures and colours available. We also look for clever storage solutions, incorporating plenty of drawers and pantry space, to make storage quick and easy.

Hiring an interior designer is not a luxury; Meredith Lee Interior Design can help save you time, reduce costs and give you confidence to make decisions. We can save you weeks on hunting down materials to realise your dream home sooner and at less expense. We take a bespoke approach to interior and kitchen design for a result that’s personally the very best for you.

As a final tip, we also recommend buying the best oven and cooktop that your budget will allow! For more great kitchen ideas check out our feature in Bupa’s article.
