Renovating or building can be a minefield, but you can avoid pulling out your hair, the fights and sleepless nights by engaging a professional designer to act as a project manager. They can ensure your ideas come to fruition and better yet, when the finished product is revealed, you can take all the credit without ever having to lift a finger!

Unlike other design businesses in Brisbane, newly launched Kim Duffin Design approaches spaces from the ground up. While designers often focus on fixtures, finishes and colours, Kim Duffin Design focus on space planning, functionality and flow before considering the design aesthetics.

Kim Duffin Design

Kim Duffin is a certified kitchen designer, certified bathroom designer and a fully qualified carpenter and joiner. He has won more than 80 regional, state and national awards in the past eight years for design and delivery, including the 2014 International Design and Architecture Award for the Asia Pacific region.

About Kim Duffin

Kim Duffin has over 25 years experience working as a craftsman, designer and now project manager. He says it’s beneficial having your designer as a project manager, as your objectives are constantly “front of mind” during the renovation or build.

“Like Chinese Whispers, things get lost in translation. Being able to comply with a brief from your designer then see it through to completion is the most effective way to ensure the outcomes envisaged for a space are achieved,” he says.

Kim says he builds relationships with clients and tailors the services to their needs, ensuring they are involved with as much or as little of the process they wish.

“Our services are designed for every stage of a renovation or new build. We consult heavily during the design stage so when we move to quoting, construction and installation, all the decisions are pre-made and we can create the space with no issues,” he explains.

For those looking for the design only service, Kim Duffin Design can work in collaboration with your Architect or Building Design from the very beginning. This will ensure your interior spaces are given equal priority and consideration during the very important “planning” stage of your new home.
