Thankyou to my clients for taking the time to share your appreciation – Karen x
Karen runs a great design process and she has redesigned our kitchen very cleverly to maximise our storage and workspace. She listened very carefully to our wishlist and came back to us with several alternatives. We refined this together and the final design ticked all our boxes. From there to the installation everything went brilliantly, nothing was too much trouble. We absolutely love the finished result. David Ladd the joiner and Graeme the installer were wonderful too, and dealt with any issues very professionally and promptly. Thank you all!

The process of designing our new kitchen with Karen went very smoothly. She always responded in a helpful and timely manner. She was accommodating to our many questions and design tweaks.
The craftsmanship from David Ladd Joinery is excellent and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend to anyone thinking of updating their kitchen. Our new kitchen is even better than we imagined. Thanks!

We are delighted with our new kitchen! Karen at Perfect Order Kitchen Design was excellent to work with. She is very efficient, knowledgeable and helpful. The whole process was most interesting and enjoyable for us, and Karen was incredibly patient when we were taking time to make decisions. Karen listened to our ideas and wishes, presented alternative options and also ways to implement our concepts; once we had considered these and given feedback she prepared plans that included full measurements and images from different angles, which gave us a good idea of how it would look. She was very receptive to further queries and modifications we had. Karen collaborates with Ladd Joinery, who made all our cabinets, and we benefitted hugely from their responsiveness, know-how and quality of work, including the preparation and installation of a non-standard-size corner pantry, which is wonderful! The other suppliers that Karen recommends were also fantastic to deal with. We are so pleased with the design of the kitchen and the usability and high quality of the finished product. Thanks a lot!

Contacting Karen at the beginning of my renovation was by far the best decision I made when it came to remodelling the various small 1970’s spaces in my recently acquired ‘granny-flat’ – e.g. a bar in the lounge, shower-box in the laundry, hand basin in the bedroom and a separate spa room.
At her initial visit I found Karen listened to my brief and took note of the many ideas swirling in my head. She then wasted little time in coming up with suitable draft plans. During the following refining process various options were presented in a collaborative and helpful manner, never with pressure. The whole process of working with Karen was both productive and enjoyable. I also commend Ladd Joinery Ltd who make her cabinetry.
Now my new layout has been in use a couple of weeks I can say with confidence that Karen has allowed me the best use of my unique space – it not only works well, it looks good too.

Karen has been fantastic to work with from start to finish. She was extremely patient when we asked for multiple design changes and her attention to detail has been outstanding the whole way through. We’ve ended up with a great kitchen that we’re completely happy with and couldn’t have asked for any more from Karen. We couldn’t recommend her highly enough! We’re also really happy with the quality, finish and workmanship from David Ladd Joinery. Karen and David are a great team and we would 100% recommend them if you’re thinking of getting a new kitchen.
Jon & Lucy Saunders – Tawa
I was pretty clear about what I wanted in my new kitchen – as many drawers as possible. Karen was able to plan this and work with us as we made adaptations. The end result is stunning – a functional and attractive kitchen. I love working in it! David Ladd Joinery, Karen, and all involved did an excellent job, paying attention to detail.

I’d planned my new kitchen in my head for 9 years, and had plans drawn up about 4 years ago but never went as far as quoting for the whole job. When my old appliances started failing though, I knew I didn’t want to spend a cent repairing my old kitchen – it was time to finally make the move and embark on the scary journey of a brand new kitchen. Even though I was fairly sure I knew what I wanted, I asked Karen to come up with some ideas that were different from what had been in my head for so long. She really thought outside the box and came up with about 3 or 4 suggestions that challenged my thinking. I still went ahead with my initial layout, but did so confident that I’d considered all other possibilities – and obviously I incorporated a lot of suggestions from Karen that have made the kitchen perfect.
I couldn’t have been happier with the finished product. My builder, whose job is ‘kitchens’ and was probably a little frustrated I didn’t use one of his kitchens, has been nothing but positive about the quality of the finish of the joinery, and said he would be happy to have that in his own home – high praise indeed!
With the final plumbing and wiring completed just in the last few days, I was able to spend the weekend just ‘contemplating’ the glory of my new kitchen!
I would happily recommend Karen and David to anyone – they work great as a team to produce a quality result.
Rebecca Johnson – Lower Hutt
I required a comparatively small alteration to my kitchen. It was carried out promptly and with professionalism by Karen and the boys from Ladd Joinery.I am delighted with the result – exactly what I wanted.
Lynne Hardy – Johnsonville
We got in touch with Karen after some less than satisfactory attempts to seek advice/quotes from some other established kitchen renovation companies. From the first contact Karen was very responsive and attentive. She listened to our ideas, expanded on them and presented us with 5 different options that we could tweak. Our new kitchen has transformed our home and turned it into a true family hub and everyone has enjoyed cooking up a storm in it. The relationship between Karen and David Ladd Joinery is unique which means they can deliver a bespoke designer kitchen at a reasonable price. We love our new kitchen!!”
Pete & Janine Wenham – Whitby
From the initial design of my kitchen to the installation, Karen was there all the way. I could not have come up with the result by myself.
Karen’s ongoing advice & wisdom was invaluable. Her approach is completely practical, efficient, and client-oriented. It was wonderful to have someone take responsibility for communicating with “the team”, making sure everything was going according to plan.
This was absolutely value for money. I couldn’t have asked for better service!
Hilary Ferral – Tawa
I had the pleasure to work with Karen to completely redo our kitchen. I received a few quotes from other companies to compare the market.
I chose to work with Karen not only because of price but because she noticed possible issues that others hadn’t mentioned. She was able to think outside the square and was able to demonstrate the knowledge and experience she had. Karen was lovely to deal with and never made me feel she was “selling”. All communication was prompt and detailed.
I would happily work with Karen again and recommend her to others. Thank you for a fantastic job and a very happy customer.
Nikki McIntosh – Churton Park
We are absolutely delighted with our new kitchen that Karen recently designed. I was looking for a specific Eco Scandinavian style and also wanting a more functional space.
Karen listened attentively to all my ideas and we worked collaboratively to achieve exactly what I had pictured our kitchen to look like. The kitchen I believe is the hub of the home and I highly recommend working with a designer like Karen to create the kitchen of your dreams.
Sarah Graham – Plimmerton
5 star rating for Karen. We had no idea where to start, or what to do.
Once we met Karen we explained what we wanted and she turned it into an amazing kitchen. For novices like us we recommend Karen to design your perfect kitchen.

She was knowledgeable about the products and could recommend those that suited my purposes.
