A Twist of Modern and Cultural Home Design

KL Interior Design for A Modern Home 2016

First and foremost, we would like to record a big thank you to our clients, Mrs. Julie Wong and husband for allowing us to shoot their beautiful Modern Home Design.

Family Area

Decors and soft furniture are owners selection 

A family area will lose the homely feel without the right mood setting. Looking at Ms. Julie Wong living, she has chosen earth tone colours to create a cozy, warm and comfortable surrounding for her family.

Adding mustard coloured cushions amongst the other patterned cushions create a pop-out illusions and vibrant into the area. 

Giant ceiling pendant is about making a statement 
Ms. Julie double volume ceilings are filled in elegantly with this flowy pendant arrangement by our site supervisor, Ilham. Attached to the ceiling piece by piece, this family area will absolutely brighten up with this giant masterpiece.

 Last photos before we ended the photo shoot. It is a satisfaction for us to provide a good service to our customers and meet their expectations. This is not just another completed project but as well a satisfaction for us to see our customer happy when we handed over the project. Credits to Aliaa (left), our Team Manager for doing a good job for Ms. Julie's (right) Modern Home.    


First and foremost, it’s a pleasure to be given the opportunity to write this testimonial, thank you Lola for the guidelines, and based on it I’ll try my best to come up with one.

Choosing Meridian was no coincidence, but having the opportunity to meet Aliaa is something that we are very happy about.  Still recall the time I was going through the websites put up by so many ID companies and the list was endless.  Then decided to shortlist them by searching just Klang Valley, and Meridian was one of those on that page.  I still feel lucky to have clicked on it and was going through the portfolios, as well as the testimonials from previous clients of Meridian.

I have to agree with them, that Meridian is not the cheapest in the market, but then after the journey with them, their price is justified, which I’ll go into more detail later.  I’ve seen their portfolio and realized one of the main thing which made them stood out is the finished pictures put up on site, which all the pictures are actual pictures on site, some even before and after, and not just 3D drawings.  I was impressed when I read about one of the client’s kitchen, and the pink color that another client really liked on Lola’s blog.  This made me even more interested to go check them out.

I still remembered clearly that Meridian’s showroom was in the midst of some upgrading, and we couldn’t find them after going 3 rounds on that route and decided to call them, and then realized that the signage Signature Kitchen is where Meridian is. 

That was just before the Hari Raya break, and I was most impressed when Aliaa turned up at my new place on the 3rd day of Hari Raya, even though it was Aliaa’s major holiday time, this was already a tick in my books for Meridian, so it was pretty much decided already who I really wanted to appoint as my ID, even though I met up with a number of other IDs.  In fact most of the quoted prices were way below compared to Meridian, but I felt that there were hidden charges here and there, unlike Meridian, the prices are what you see and what you get.  So the selection was set with our first payment.   In fact Lola said “hmm, I’ll send one of my seniors….”, and when I met Aliaa, hmm “senior?”, but this young “senior” really won us over!
With no doubt, I must compliment Aliaa on the effort and time taken to listen to what we wanted, and gave her advice where ever she felt that it’s a “no-no” (like the grandmother’s lights for the master bedroom), and a “yes” (for the grandmother’s light at the dining area), and the heart put in, even though she had so many things on hand, and not to mention the VOs we had here and there, kudos to Aliaa, for your patience.  Even though sometimes feedback is not immediate, but you never fail or disappoint, and nothing is ever left unattended.

And I believe, with every other contractors, there are bound to be challenges and misunderstandings along the way, which we have also experienced with some of Meridian’s contractors, even though at all times we made sure we tried our very best not have any direct contacts with them.   I would definitely say that most of them were really good, but with a few individuals who are rather self-centered and not very concerned about other people’s work.  I believe there’s a difference between “accidents” and “aloofness”, and also ‘not-so-true tales’ which are carried in between.  I guess everyone will have their side of the stories, with negative details being omitted on their sides.  But nevertheless, all turned out well in the end.

If there is only a word to describe Meridian, it’ll be “touch”.   Why touch? It’s the personal touch that made all of you stood out from the rest, I really appreciate all that Aliaa have done, sitting down numerous time to listen, to accommodate, to sort things out, even Ilham at site, and Deny who came in the evening, and most important of all not forgetting Mr. Lim and Lola, who did all the things in the background even though they never came up to take the credits.  We know, it’s never easy to be a “middle” person, but Aliaa has really given her best to make things work for us, and yes we’ll definitely recommend Meridian to our family and friends, and we must highlight to request for Aliaa, and Ilham, thank you to both of you, I didn’t forget the altar lights (wink, wink), and even the time Aliaa when your daughter was not well but you still came to site. 

Thank you once again for everything, but I hope this is not the end; I still look forward to future workings with the Meridian group.  Keep up the good work!”

“We obtained quotations from three ID’s and Meridian was the most expensive.

We have selected Meridian because we stay in Subang Jaya and Meridian is in Subang. It is convenient for us to visit Meridian.

Meridian has greatly assisted us in the design and materials selection. Mr. Nick was very knowledgeable and with his advice, the kitchen and wardrobe were completed to our satisfaction.

We will definitely recommend Meridian. Most homeowners will compare price from two or three ID’s. Once they understand Meridian’s creative ideas, quality product, and good workmanship they will see beyond the price as in our case.

Meridian in one word is Excellent.”

Common Complaints of Wear and Tear


“I first bought a Signature Kitchen in 2013 which is 3 years ago. 

My sliding drawer railings came off causing the drawer to experience difficulty in sliding. Other than that, my sink faucet was loose at the base with the sink and I also had problems with a stubborn stain on my countertop.

Having those 3 problems, I decided to call Mr. Lim from Meridian to help solve my kitchen problems.

Mr. Lim dropped by to reinstall the railings and taught me how it can be reconnected. As for the tap issue, Mr. Lim has sent a technician to strengthen the tap connection at the underside of the sink. For my last issue, the workers came to polish back my countertop.

I have used other carpenters before and they were lack of after sales service.

After sales service is important to me because it is critical to ensure that your company remains competitive.

if I have the chance to buy a kitchen or ID work all over again, I would still choose Meridian. 

I would definitely recommend Meridian to my family and friends. 

Very good, keep it up!."

Eubiq Power Track
This kitchen gadget is very highly requested among my customer, it is not just user-friendly but also a child-proof product. Enabling sockets to move on the track, this track is the contradict of the common stiff power plug.
Bronze Magic Glass by Signature Kitchen Brand

A signature product from Signature Kitchen - Magic Glass. Many have wondered why it is named that way... the product gets its name from the ability to "hide and show" what's behind it. Having the same concept as tinted glass that you can see on many cars, this Magic Glass by Signature Kitchen can "hide" the inside view of kitchen cabinets. However, when the inner lights are switched on, it will "show" what's behind the glass.

Premium Quality kitchen cabinets are made by Signature Kitchen  

Team Manager cum Interior Designer, Nur Diyana with Mr. Danan, owner of this Modern Sleek Linear kitchen 


Meridian pricing is fair and reasonable compared to other IDs but more importantly, they have an experienced team who are committed to exceeding the client’s expectations.

I met Nur Diyana by chance at a recent Homedec exposition and was immediately comfortable with her knowledge of modern kitchen designs and her awareness of the requirements of my recently renovated bungalow.

 Meridians after sales service are outstanding. Attending to minor readjustments and responding to my queries in a timely fashion place them in a league above other contractors I have dealt with.

Meridian delivered a modern customized kitchen unit as I had visualized perfectly.

Yes, I would definitely recommend Meridian. The designers have a sound grasp of what makes an outstanding kitchen matching the design with the overall concept of the renovation. The team are friendly and open to constructive criticism pay attention to small details and are prompt in their delivery of the finished product

In one word...Dopamine!   (The hormone that induces waves of pleasure in the brain)”
