“I believe that design is a form of art and is experienced by each person in a different way. This is why I love to design interiors for individuals, telling their story and using their personalities to inspire me. I create unique, beautiful and functional interiors and love to add quirky elements to bring in some fun.”
As a DUT graduate with a bachelor’s in Interior Design, Paige has been working in the industry since 2009. She began Redesign Interiors in 2011, and has built up a successful design team that is always up for a good challenge! With her infectious enthusiasm and passion for design, it’s easy to see that she loves what she does.
3 Awesome Kitchen Design Tips From Redesign Interiors
Tip 1: Since the kitchen is the heart of the home, and probably the most used space in most homes, our advice is to make it a beautiful space that you feel amazing in every day. For instance, if you’re crazy about flamingos, then add a flamingo mosaic to one of your kitchen walls. Or if you think yellow is just the bee’s knees, then don’t be afraid to add this colour to your kitchen cabinets!
Tip 2: Carefully consider your daily kitchen routine, and how you can make the space you have suit your daily needs. For example, if you bake regularly, then design a space just for that. Or if you have a smoothie every morning, be sure to have a spot just for your smoothie machine, next to the fridge where the fruit is, with a small bin close by for all your fruit scraps.
Tip 3: Lighting is crucial in kitchen design. There is nothing worse than not being able to see the amazing food you are about to prepare! That’s why it’s a good idea to consider under counter lighting, sufficient overhead lighting, as well as lighting in your cupboards.
Decorative lighting is also a must when it comes to setting the right ambience in the kitchen. So we suggest you bring in some dropped pendants with a warmer light to help set a comfortable atmosphere.
