Looking for a kitchen designer in Melbourne?
When you’re choosing a kitchen designer in Melbourne, these are the qualities and credentials you should consider, according to Co.Kitchen’s lead design consultant Rachel Collard.
EXPERTISE as a Melbourne kitchen Designer
As a kitchen designer in Melbourne for reality renovation show The Block and Freedom Kitchen, with hundreds of kitchen renovations to her name, Rachel says experience is key when choosing who to enlist to project manage your new kitchen.
This passionate Melbourne kitchen designer has specialised in creating contemporary kitchens over the last 10 years and says she is proud of each and every new kitchen she has helped to shape.
“The kitchen is such an important room to get right. I regard it as the soul and social hub of the home.”
One of her recent projects highlighted Rachel’s reputation as a Melbourne kitchen designer of note.
“Without Rachel, we would’ve ended up with a regretful and impractical kitchen. Because of her, we now have a kitchen design that works so well with our style and for a family of five.” says client Ariane.
QUALIFICATIONS as a kitchen designer in Melbourne
Ask if your kitchen designer has formal qualifications in interior design, preferably from a recognised education institution.
Rachel has a Diploma in Interior Design from RMIT and has worked as an interior designer for 15 years. She is also degree qualified as a psychologist, which she believes enhances her ability to understand and communicate with clients and contractors, making her one of the most uniquely skilled Melbourne kitchen designers.
CREATIVITY as a kitchen designer in Melbourne
You might be surprised by the ingenuity and creative suggestions offered by a kitchen designer. That’s the ultimate value in having a professional kitchen designer to guide you – the inspired thinking they can bring to your new kitchen. Rachel believes great kitchen design extends beyond colours and finishes, it’s about considering the form and function of your cooking space, the practicality of the room, as well as perfecting the style – whether it be contemporary, provincial, minimalist or retro.
DESIGN ADVICE from Melbourne kitchen designers
Whether you’re in the middle of a kitchen renovation and need some advice to move forward, or at the start of your kitchen renovation and need inspiration, a Melbourne kitchen designer will always be able to help, and can often save you time and money.
Rachael Collard recommends seeking the services of a kitchen designer at the drafting stage.
“Once a wall has been built, that’s hard to fix. So, it’s best to have a kitchen designer involved at the drafting or architecture stage,” she says.
Other people may require design ideas as they’re undecided about what they actually want and need professional direction.
“Our service can be beautiful even just for design advice – for showing you colour trends, tiling options, storage solutions and how to make the most of your space and light.”

Rachel Collard and her Co.Kitchen team have been respected kitchen designers in Melbourne for 10 years. Those business credentials mean they have a wealth of trusted tradies and artists on hand – builders, joiners, painters and decorators – a trusted network who will bring your kitchen dreams come to life.
“I do have a lot of resources so this is the one stop shop if you need it,” says Rachel.
