How did you start designing kitchens?
From an early age, I have always had a passion for art and design. In the UK I studied a Bachelor of Arts in 3-dimensional design specialising in furniture design. My first job out of university was working for a small manufacturer in my local town where we designed and manufactured bespoke and funky restaurant, bar, shop fitouts, high end contemporary domestic joinery and a range of café chairs, tables and lighting.

After a few years I decided it was time to travel and see the world. So I spent the next 12 months backpacking and absorbing design influences around the globe. Australia was my final destination on the list and being a keen windsurfer, I fell in love with the Fremantle doctor and WA’s beautiful coastline. Fast forward 19 years later and I’m still here!

My first professional kitchen design job in WA was in 1999, while I was working for Joyce Kitchens as a technical adviser, measuring and drafting their kitchens for production. I had a wonderful experience working in this position, which built a strong technical foundation for kitchen design. I continued to pursue my passion, going on to work for a number of high end kitchen manufacturers in Perth and Adelaide, receiving many HIA kitchen design awards.

Joyce Kitchens is a custom kitchen manufacturer that uses only the highest quality materials and offers the best service in Perth. Having had such a fantastic experience with my first employment with Joyce, it was an easy decision to work with Joyce again. Many of my colleagues are the original staff, plumbers, electricians, tilers and builders that I worked with back in 1999. It feels like home to me.

I am thoroughly enjoying my current role as a senior design and sales consultant. As a custom manufacturer, Joyce offers the freedom and flexibility with manufacture I enjoy as a creative designer. One of my most recent projects has been the design of our spectacular, newly refurbished kitchen showroom in Osborne Park. All kitchens showcase the latest state-of-the-art materials and hardware.

Joyce Kitchens clients are spoilt for choice. We have an extensive number of styles and layouts, ranging from contemporary clean lines to a more homely traditional kitchen.

So how did you get started as a Kitchen Designer?
I actually started by accident. I wanted to build again (I built my first home at 21).  After traipsing through almost every show home in Perth, I found the one thing they all lacked was functional and practical layouts, especially the kitchens, so I decided I would design my own home. I discovered that I was pretty good at it and have since designed and built four more times. I progressed to assisting developers in designing multiple units and then started my own business with this.  I was involved in every aspect of the process; from actual design right down to window treatments, flooring, landscaping and even ordering reticulation and on occasions getting out there myself and labouring with the tradies! Then one day, a friend asked me to take a look at her kitchen and come up with some ideas.  That was when I realised kitchens were for me!  I loved the whole process, even when I was trying to fit a square peg in a round hole, I made it fit and the excitement it gave my friend was worth bottling.  I have never looked back, this is my passion.

What do you love about Designing Kitchens?
I love that it is so challenging and rewarding at the same time.  Every home I walk into is different and every client’s lifestyle is equally unique.  The best part for me is their response to the final outcome (just like my friend).  There is no better feeling than knowing I have helped make someone’s life more pleasurable!
