Old is New

David and Lee-Anne had a vision for their dream kitchen, so when it came to choosing a designer they wanted to make sure it was someone who would understand their needs.

After meeting with John Herbut from Balhannah Kitchens by Design they knew they had found their man. “Once he realised that we didn’t want a ‘modern’ looking kitchen he had plenty of suggestions to get the right look and feel,” says David. “ We showed him the things about our dream kitchen that we really wanted and he made sure that he could customise our kitchen around them.” John’s experience was also valuable in making David and Lee-Anne’s concept a reality. “John asked the right questions that showed he understood what we anted, and came up with the ideas to create the space to make it work. He showed us a design for a customer he had done before, so we felt comfortable that he knew what was involved for it to be a success,” says Lee-Anne.

David and Lee-Anne were also impressed with John’s itemised, Fixed Price Contract and Site Installation Schedule, which gave them peace of mind. “The site installation schedule was really good,” says Lee-Anne. “Being provided with exact dates of which trades were arriving on which days made it easier for us to organise the other aspects of our renovation project.” The couple are so happy with their new kitchen, they’re happy to recommend John to anyone. “John was so professional and easy going that it made us feel confident that we could leave it all to him to deliver a kitchen we would love, and he did,” says David. “Going with Balhannah Kitchens by Design certainly made it less of a stressful time, we could just focus on being excited about the end result.”
