A great kitchen starts with a great design


When you commission Neo Design to make and install your kitchen, bathroom, or joinery, you’ll enjoy a comprehensive design service.

At Neo, we only make kitchens specifically designed to fit your space, needs and sense of style, and it all starts with a great design. Design excellence is the foundation of everything we do, going well beyond just the style and finish, to include ergonomics and construction. 
 
Design - why it matters
Many people planning a new kitchen or bathroom think a designer is unnecessary, indulgent or expensive. Nothing could be further from the truth. More than just the look you want (which of course is very important), good design is about delivering spaces that are functional and work the way you and your family like to live.

Design is an investment
For a very modest outlay, our design service is the best investment you'll ever make. A kitchen or bathroom is a major investment of your time, money and effort, and good design at the outset will ensure you get the very best result. Depending on scale and complexity, our design fee typically ranges between $1800 - $3000 including GST.
 
This fee covers meetings with you to create and resolve the design, advise materials and finishes, site visits and measure, materials sourcing, and includes a 3D render together with 2D CAD drawings. The 3D render is so lifelike that it gives you the chance to see your kitchen finished and installed before construction has even started. Find out more about 3D renders.

Design adds value
The effect a well-designed and executed kitchen can have on your home is quite profound. Not only will it transform your kitchen and the surrounding area, it can also add value to your home. To see just how much of a transformation is possible, see our selection of 'before' and 'after' photos.

Part of the service: see your kitchen before it is made with our life-like 3D render

Imagine being able to see a picture of your new kitchen, finished and installed in your home, BEFORE it has even been made. As strange as it sounds, all our customers receive a photo-realistic image of their new kitchen, in their home, before we’ve even begun to make it. It’s a standard part of our design service.

The secret is sophisticated software that we use to create a photo-realistic image from the 2D design drawings, pictures and measurements taken from site. It’s not an overstatement to say the results are impressive. In many instances, it’s hard to tell the difference between the computer render and the finished kitchen. 

The benefit to you is obvious: you can see exactly how your new kitchen is going to look before spending a cent having it made. This removes any doubt for you, and any potential for disappointment because the final product doesn’t look the way you’d imagined it. 

The render (top right), was created once design had been finalized. The finished and installed kitchen is pictured, (right).

What you need to know about kitchen designers

With years of experience, good kitchen or interior designers have a wealth of knowledge about layouts, styles, trends, and materials.

A well designed kitchen, bathroom, laundry or interior fit-out will add value to your home (the opposite is also true). That’s why we believe design is an investment, not an expense.

Designers know how to navigate building codes, council requirements, technical and construction issues.

Your project must be more than good-looking, it must be a joy to be in and work in. Designers know how to lay out a kitchen that is a pleasure to use every day.

A designer will oversee and manage your entire project from beginning to end, saving you time, money and frustration.  A designer has the experience to deal effectively with any unexpected issues that might arise along the way.

Designers know the tricks to make your budget go further, and deliver a solution that is both practical and stylish for you and your home.

Our designers produce concept drawings and a 3D render so you can get a visual idea of your kitchen or interior design project before it is made.

A good designer keeps up with the latest trends, and is across developments in new products, materials and kitchen design - you get the benefit of this.

If something isn’t right, or wasn’t what you bargained for, it’s in the interests of the designer to put it right to protect their reputation.

Designers are skilled professionals - they spend years learning their craft They are trained to interpret your needs and wants and create a solution that really does deliver for you.
