TESTIMONIALS

Kind Words

Dave and Kara - KARDA Constructions

KARDA Constructions has been working with KJK Interiors for the past year on numerous projects. Karen has worked with our clients on the interior environment of their renovations including design, selections and styling.

We have found Karen provides a comprehensive service for our clients. She immediately develops a great rapport with the clients and is dedicated to designing their project to match their chosen style and personality whilst working into their budget. Karen not only looks after the clients best interests but provides us with excellent communication and feels apart of our team. Her work in the preliminary stage makes the construction phase run smoothly with minimal variations.

It is for these reasons that Karen has been an invaluable asset to our company and we would have no hesitation in recommending her services or using them in the future on our projects.

Mark Hancock - Hancock Homes

Over the past 12 months, it’s been a pleasure working with KjK interiors. Karen has the ability to attract buyers through creating appealing colour schemes for our new homes.

KjK Interiors helped with introducing Hancock Homes to a contemporary well thought out finishes schedule.

Karen has worked closely with new homeowners on design and construct contracts which has assisted with making our clients feel both part of the design process and comfortable with the finishes schedule.

Ultimately, we have loved having Karen and KjK Interiors involved in our construction projects over the last 12 months and know that there will be many more years of collaboration.

Simone - JDL Informed Construction

Our company has been working with Karen from KJK Interiors on a couple of building projects.

Karen has an amazing overall design vision as well as an ability to problem solve difficulties.

Having Karen on board advising the client and ouselves has made our process very streamlined, her high standard of professionalism, design and work ethic has made working together a great pleasure.

We look forward to combining our talents in future project.

Kelly and Byron Maddern - Home Owners

Working with Karen from KjK Interiors has been a dream! So much so we are about to start our second project with her. She’s so incredibly talented and creative with an exceptional ability to hone in on what you’re thinking and interpret it in ways you never could have imagined. Through the stresses of a new build and now our next project of a renovation, she is the calm amongst the storm. She’s friendly and easy to work with, she’s been right there the whole way along refining our vision and helping us create beautiful yet functional spaces.

I highly recommend KjK Interiors. Karen is the first person we call when we are thinking about taking on a new project.

Leticia - Home Owner - Hendra Renovation

I was fortunate to find Karen whom gave me confidence to embark on a three room renovation (Ensuite, WIR and office) that I had been reluctant to start for 12 months. I was so confused and conflicted with the design and finishes particularly as it had to tie in with the rest of the house, but I wanted a more modern touch and all within a tight budget.

Karen was fantastic right from the initial meeting, she gave me the confidence to go ahead, the support though the installation and I couldn’t be happier with how it is all coming together.

I found Karen’s friendly personality very approachable and nothing was too much trouble, right down to the smallest detail. Her passion for design is obvious and infectious and I really trusted her advice when it came to making some difficult decisions. She has tremendous vision and seems to have the right balance between giving advice without being intrusive so the entire project which was once so overwhelming became exciting and enjoyable.

Michael and Kylie Gallagher - Home Owners

I was given Karen’s number by our builder. We were building our ‘forever’ home and whilst I knew in my head the look I wanted, I had no idea how to achieve this or communicate that with the builder.

I went to Karen with our floor tile – nothing else. From this floor tile she put together paint colours, wall and feature tiles, carpet colours as well as tap and handle choices. Working with Karen was like working with an old friend. Her easy-going manner took away the anxiety I was feeling about making these huge decisions that I would have to live with and see every day. After the first 15 minutes I felt so comfortable and confident that Karen would give me the look I was after, the rest of our meetings were fun and exciting.  Karen put together colours and textures that I would never have the courage or creativity to do. I knew that decorating this house was out of my comfort zone so to have Karen by my side through this process removed all apprehension I had. Karen always made herself available to me. She walked me through every decision we made and she made herself available to be on site to communicate our ideas with the tradesman.

Whilst I give all the credit to Karen’s work when people complement my house and the ‘look’ it has, it’s her ability to be inclusive in the planning and implementing of our choices, that I have a very strong sense of collaborative effort. We were a team working together to achieve our dream home.
