"Natalie is a truly talented designer...
She takes on ownership of a design brief and creates an environment that will be unique and satisfy the needs of the client. She thinks outside the square to provide the best aesthetically appealing environment but at the same time one that is functional and intelligent. She was responsible for the design of my kitchen and three and half bathrooms. The final products are beautiful environments that we find easy to enjoy and live within.
Thank you Natalie for listening to my needs and creating perfect environments for my family."

"Natalie has designed, organised the production, installation and building work of two kitchens for us. After being so pleased with the first kitchen we knew when we moved we wanted her back for the second. What makes her different is her attention to detail and the practical planning so that the finished kitchen is wonderful to work in. The fact that it is also stunningly beautiful is just an added bonus."
Brooke and Sue Williamson
"We just love our kitchen and always tell everyone what a great job you did. We even had a large dinner party (18 people seated) and the kitchen coped well. One of the great things about our kitchen is that we are able to always keep it clean and tidy because there is room to easily store everything."
Kevin Kilsby and Brent Scott
"I wish to record my appreciation for the wonderful, innovative design by Natalie Du Bois. Her professionalism, help, and support made the process very much easier. Her skills in helping me decide the type of kitchen I wanted, colour schemes, general layout and the placement of applicances etc was a great assistance. I have a wonderful kitchen, which is great to work in. Many people have admired it thanks to Natalie."
"Natalie did a great job of re-designing our kitchen. She was a pleasure to work with and she readily took time to consider our preferences and make changes to the designs to meet our particular needs and taste. I would highly recommend Natalie to anyone looking to invest in a quality kitchen or bathroom."
"We thoroughly enjoyed working with Natalie to deliver a superb kitchen design. She came up with a creative design that worked well for our family, and also won an award. She worked closely with the joinery company to ensure the design was practical to achieve while losing nothing from the design intent. We constantly recommend Natalie to clients and friends."
"I engaged Natalie to design a kitchen for our home. Her very first design was excellent. She incorporated a couple of suggestions by us without spoiling the integrity of her initial plan. Her standards were very high and we have been happy with every aspect of the kitchen both in looks and how it works. I can strongly recommend her."
"We commissioned Natalie twice to assist with renovating a kitchen, bathrooms, wash house and study. Natalie has the ability to fully understand peoples needs. While she is practical she is also approachable and innovative with her designs. We would not hesitate to use her skills again if the need arises."
"Natalie Du Bois designed my kitchen and was very attentive to my needs and preferences, chose the best materials for me and was consistent and reliable with her work and budget. I would recommend Natalie happily."
"Natalie worked with us on our renovation designing and project managing the kitchen, two bathrooms and a laundry. She was brilliant to work with. The design and finished product are stunning - we are delighted with the results. The Kitchen ended up by winning the Trends Kitchen Award! We have one bathroom to go so Natalie will be back...."
"Natalie has provided outstanding service from concept and design, through to delivery of the final plans and coordination of the construction. She worked and communicated well with us through every step of the renovation project to ensure our wants and needs were met. The end result was that our new kitchen appeared in Kitchen Trends Magazine and we couldn't be more pleased. Thanks Natalie!"
Dr. Graeme Ting
"On first meeting Natalie I was impressed with her inventive and thoughtful ways of putting a project together. Natalie has always been extremely professional but also very personable. She listens to her clients and provides a service in line with budgets, lifestyles and personalities. Natalie is extremely diligent, talented and an absolute perfectionist in the service she provides and the recommendations she makes. We have been absolutely delighted with the schemes she has provided for us which have always been unique. The quality of her recommended products have been extremely high and have received many positive comments. Natalie always stands by her work and if there are ever any issues will always go the extra mile to rectify it. I cannot recommend Natalie enough. Her work is outstanding. She is reliable, professional and very easy to deal with."
