This project was part of Channel Nine’s 2019 TV program ‘Love Shack’ where LTKI collaborated with homeowners and renovation specialists Deanne & Darren Jolly. The ‘Love Shack’ is situated in the beautiful coastal town of Fingal on Victoria’s Mornington Peninsula. Dea& Darren transformed a small and dated 3 bedroom ‘shack’ into a stunning family home with a significant extension and redesign of the whole property. Let’s Talk Kitchens & Interiors’ Managing Director Rex Hirst was engaged to design and build all of the cabinetry for the project including kitchen, scullery, mudroom, laundry, bathroom vanities, entertainment units, master walk-in-robe and wardrobes. We think the combination of Dea’s honed eye for colour and style and Rex’s skills in spatial planning and Interior Design have culminated in a truly spectacular family home.

We were very impressed with their desire to achieve the best outcome, with the space available and how to use it in a more efficient way.
The finished result looks fantastic. It's very functional and fits in really well with the look of the rest of the house.
They were always on time. Attention to details, very courteous and professional. Rebecca's excellent designs, quality of products and services are second to none. The projects went very well. I'm extremely happy with my new bathroom, kitchen & laundry.
I took the recommendation to use LTKI. Not only did they work to schedule and on budget I also had the benefit of Rebecca Meyer's artistic design. I just let Rebecca do it all. Best decision I ever made. I won't ever bother trying to manage a home project again.
The team at LTKI did a terrific job on renovating our bathroom, kitchen and living areas of our large family home. Mark's designs and creativity were more than we could have imagined. Everyone associated with the project were very supportive and made what could of been stressful into a manageable and easy process. All the trades involved were very reliable, professional and easy to get along with. We are extremely happy with the final outcome and look forward to working with this awesome team on our next project.
After contacting Rex to try and get a fix for our builder installed kitchen. He came out, offered great advice, and directed us to a tradesman that fixed our problem. Even though this didn't result in work for LTKI took the time and effort to help us when no one else would.
An outstanding job. Only two hiccups First, when installing Qasair range hood, it was discovered that we had the wrong type for an induction stove top. Trouble was that the correct range hood was 30mm thicker. This required a complete replacement of the cupboards. Second, the induction cook top was put too far forward in the Corian bench top. Most of the bench tops had to be replaced. In both cases the problems were fixed at no expense to the client. Very impressed
