Katrin B., London, UK
Dear Helena, I want to thank you for your work in getting my kitchen organised. I contacted you because no matter how often I tidied and decluttered, I never got the kitchen to a state where everything had its place and the work surfaces were free. Some of the items standing around had a place but it was just too inconvenient to reach, so they were never put away. I was skeptical if you could really change this or if we just had to move or build an extension. Working with you has been an absolute pleasure. Everything in our kitchen has not only a place but is stored where we are most likely to use it. Nothing is stored on the worktops. We have now lived with this new order for a couple of months and I can truly say it is a sustainable solution. With two small kids in the house, it does get messy and not everything is being put away straight away. The beauty of our transformed kitchen is that it does not matter because when I have a moment it takes so much less time to get everything sorted. An added bonus is that because of this clear structure all items end up in their place no matter if I, my husband or the cleaner put them away. One question my friends ask me when they see the new kitchen is if I had to buy lots of things to get it that organised. I did not; I only bought a few new shelves and divider. I happily recommend you and your work. I love your energy and structured way of working. You grasped the space and its problems immediately, even though we live in two different parts of the world and you could only see it on Skype and video. Thank you for solving the daily battle with our kitchen.
