Truly great interior design is not just something that looks good on paper, but something you feel. It’s quality materials and workmanship. It’s unique styling. Its precision workmanship and attention to detail. 

Whether renovating or designing a new build, being able to experience how it feels when an entire home comes together seamlessly is what Adina Designed Interiors has accomplished with its new Designrooms.

Andrew and Julie Murchie opened the new space in April.

“We didn’t want it to be another kitchen and bathroom showroom. We wanted people to walk in and feel like they are at home. They can look at the kitchen and bathroom, but also think about bedrooms, home offices, lounge and dining rooms. We are able to show clients how to incorporate custom-made furniture pieces for the whole home, creating a beautifully styled space designed to suit their lifestyle” Julie said.

“By having this all in our Designrooms, it shows how to blend your whole house in a seamless way, to carry one theme right through your home.”

The Designrooms have been decorated with artwork and soft furnishings for a completed look, all of which are for sale. 

“A number of our custom-made furniture pieces are also for sale, direct from the Designrooms floor. Should these pieces find their forever home, it will allow us to design something new and keep our showroom aligned with current trends,” Julie said.

While cost of living pressures continue to bite, Julie said there were many clever ways to make a home beautiful on all budgets. The staff at Adina Designed Interiors can provide advice about what is achievable with the budget you have, and suggest options to consider in providing design solutions.  

To assist with decision making, Adina have a staff of interior designers who look at the function of spaces, can troubleshoot potential problems and bring in elements to maximise the potential and ambience of a room. 

“Our designers can help with colours and finishes, but can also provide full cabinetry design and structural modifications such as moving walls or reconfiguring spaces if you are renovating,” Julie said.

“All of our cabinet makers are on site, making the furniture in our workshop, so our designers communicate with them directly. When the designers are detailing the joinery, they can check and confirm their designs are workable, using the technical expertise of the cabinet makers to help inform the design,” Julie said.

“We can even have the cabinet makers come in and talk directly to the clients if necessary. And if structural building work is required, we have the expertise of Murchie Constructions’ carpenters right next door. There’s a really good relationship there, all working together to deliver the perfect cabinetry solution.”

Local experience

Andrew and Julie took over Murchie Constructions when Andrew’s father, John, retired in 2005. “Murchie Constructions had always had a cabinet making division, since the late 1960s, but most people didn’t realise the company could do stand-alone cabinetmaking. Consequently, we decided to separate the companies and give Adina its own identity,” Julie said.

“Adina has really established itself in the commercial world as a stand-alone commercial cabinet maker and shop and office fitter. However, up until now we haven’t really marketed the residential work that Adina does.

“With the launch of the Adina Designrooms, we are excited to showcase our residential work.”
