To anyone considering using the services of YKDesigns the message is simple – “Don’t hesitate”.
Yani’s greatest skill is his desire to listen to his clients’ ideas and wishes. From that, his ability to produce a design which exceeds expectations is truly amazing. We took an embarrassing sketch of everything we desired in our dream home to our first meeting with Yani. He encouraged us to explain our ideas and that was it; the first draft design was not only what we wanted, but incorporated some additional features that enhanced our concepts and have proven to be fantastic. With a couple of minor re-arrangements, we quickly had our plan for construction. Unlike others in the design profession, Yani listens. It is truly a pleasure to work with YKDesigns and we have no hesitation in recommending their services to anyone.

After being scarred by another designer who took over nine months to produce a design that was double our budget, we met with Yani. Although I was initially worried about starting from scratch, I didn’t need to be. We sat with Yani and he quietly listened as we talked through what we wanted and didn’t want, how we lived and how we used our current space. Soon after Yani brought to us the first design, and we loved it. We didn’t say too much at the time because we were expecting to find something wrong on closer inspection – we thought there was no way it could be perfect on the first go. However, he built into the design everything we asked for and in the process came up with a beautiful design that will suit our family perfectly.
Not only has the design been fantastic, Yani has worked with us through the whole process patiently answering the many questions we have from being renovation novices. Yani is still today, long after the design has been completed and plans approved, involved in some of the details with the builder and we truly appreciate it.
We have recommended Yani to friends considering renovation and will continue to, as he has been fantastic.
We couldn’t have hoped for a better designer or a better design!

After going through two building designers and three designs that were well beyond the budget we had set, we were about to give up on the whole idea of building. We were then indroduced to Yani and right away felt like he got what we were trying to do. He listened patiently to our brief and was happy to work with what we wanted. The final design was even better than we had imagined as he had come up with some really clever ideas to achieve the functionality we wanted in the house.
Even now after the house has been completed, Yani is always happy to pick up the phone and answer questions we have with regard to small projects on the house. We would recommend Yani without hesitation.

We were unsure what to do with our Post War fibro house. With Yani’s superb guidance we were able to create a design that complemented the original structure and turned an old house into a beautiful home that we love.
Yani was a pleasure to work with and we can’t recommend him highly enough!

YKDesigns have now completed two projects for me and I unreservedly recommend their services. They initially assisted with a renovation project on a building and, based on the quality job they delivered, I’ve since had them develop renovation plans for my own home. Yani asks questions to ascertain your needs and speaks in a quiet and professional manner.

We are so pleased we had plans done before renovating. Speaking to a professional has meant we have achieved a much better use of space… and the result is a seamless extension that complements the character of our home. Thank you for your patience and for making the time to understand our often half-baked plans so they could be turned into such a fantastic result. Thanks also for the fantastic 3D model. I had plans drawn up from another designer but found it very difficult to visualise the space from the drawings… Having access to this program meant we could ‘walk’ through the house, making it really easy for us to make changes, add features and envisage the finished renovation. Thanks for offering this unique service.
Friends of ours are thinking about renovating and we have highly recommended your services to them.
Thank you for the comprehensive and excellent job you did on our shop renovation. The designs made fantastic use of a small space and showed much creativity and flair, exactly what we were looking for. The drawings supplied were extremely thorough in all building and construction details, making it easy for us to tender to builders. The entire project ran very smoothly and we appreciate your guidance and excellent advice in all areas.
I am writing to express my sincere thanks for making the daunting process of raising and building under our home so easy. The design you produced far exceeded our hopes and expectations and we were very grateful to your team for managing the building process on our behalf. The entire project has been straightforward and relatively stress-free. Thank you too for always keeping us in the loop; we appreciate the way we were consulted and advised at each step of the process.

YKDesigns provided me with exceptional service. They were quick, efficient and gave me everything I asked for (and more) in a clear and understandable way. Yani made the whole renovation process easy and enjoyable. He really listened to what I wanted and made lots of recommendations and suggestions which meant that the end result was far better than what I could have imagined. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending YKDesigns to anyone who’s looking for a design and drafting service. Thanks Yani!
When it came to remodeling our home, we are so pleased we chose YKDesigns. Yani explained each part of the process clearly and explained the dos and don’ts simply. We found the pricing very reasonable and felt YKDesigns’ service was honest, professional and customer focused at every stage.
