At Meridian, we are already baking and cooking on a regular basis. What started out as a fun-activity for staff...eventually led to baking SOMETHING EXTRA FOR SHARING with our neighbours and the clients who visit our showroom.

Well, SOMETHING LED TO ANOTHER when our clients say ...

" WOW! The baking smells heavenly!"
" How I wish I can learn to use my kitchen for such fun activities too! My kids will love the cookies!"
" I could invite some girl-friends over for a great bake-out over the weekend!"
" I wish to learn how to make full use of my new oven instead of leaving it idle!"

So the EUREKA MOMENT came....

* What if we do our baking on Sundays instead of on a weekday?

COMMENTS / REVIEW ABOUT MERIDIAN INTERIOR DESIGN 


"Meridian's pricing was slightly beyond average but I believe good thing don't come cheap.

 I have selected Meridian because of the quality of the product, branding and after sales service. 

With my previous contractors, I am more involved in the project and take more time in terms of supervision and arrangement comparing to Meridian's contractors. 

Yes, Meridian did help me and I love my new kitchen. It looks awesomely nice! 

Definitely, would recommend Meridian to my friends and family because good things are meant to share around. 

Sum it all, Meridian is Fantastic."

Modern Kitchen Design, Casa Green Cheras, Kuala Lumpur

MODERN KITCHEN DESIGN - CASA GREEN, CHERAS, KUALA LUMPUR


Designing a great kitchen require a lot of time and effort, credit goes to our designer, Naomi for creating this white modern and functional kitchen for Ms. Foo Cheoi Ying and husband. 

A single island is designed as the main focal point in this Dry Kitchen
For a medium kitchen layout, it is essential to measure every inch of the space in order to plan and design a fully utilize space usage.

Here are some tips for a condo size kitchen:

1. Get your layout plan ready

  • This is the first step before you can proceed with any other decision. Know your space and kitchen shape!

2. Justify between what you want and what you need

  • Common problems amongst customer are they can't decide what they actually need in their kitchen. For example, customers with a big family will need more storage units comparing to single parents. 
  • Consult with your designer on this, get their advice to avoid wasted space! 

3. Open it up with white

  • Yes, bright colours like white will give an illusion of a bigger space in the kitchen room. 
  • Not to mention, the sufficient amount of lights for a dramatic effect. 
4. Built-in Appliances
  • Not just modern looking, but built-in appliances also is a space saving appliances!
5. Small Island is enough
  • Sometimes, less is more. Having a small island inside your dry kitchen won't consume much space, giving a practical kitchen for you to use!
