Design That Inspires

We understand that every space has its own story and purpose and whether you're looking to reimagine your home, revitalize your office, or create an unforgettable hospitality experience, we are here to bring your interior design dreams to life. Investing in professional cabinetry design services from Burra Design ensures that your space is a true reflection of your personality, elevating your lifestyle or business to new levels of elegance and functionality. Let us be your creative partner, and together, we'll not only craft designs that surpass your dreams and create unforgettable spaces but also guide you through the renovation process without the usual stresses associated with doing so.​


Since our establishment in 2022, spearheaded by founder Alex Coates, the aim was to create a service which diverged from the DIY narrative sometimes associated when dealing with IKEA and create a fresh approach to the home renovation process. With our extensive experience in designing IKEA cabinetry and project managing the installation of their products, we felt it was important to provide quality and valuable design services and to share our knowledge of the renovation process with clients, when considering IKEA as a supplier of their cabinetry. The designs and information provided throughout the project, is then found to be a very detailed level, aiding to the streamlined renovation process for all involved, including trades such as builders, electricians, plumbers etc.


Why we are different:


Professional Expertise: We possesses a deep understanding of design principles and spatial dynamics. With our expertise, we create IKEA cabinetry designs that seamlessly blend aesthetics and functionality, resulting in spaces that are visually stunning and purposeful.  

Customization and Personalization: Unlike free design services that often offer limited choices or cookie-cutter solutions, Burra Design takes a personalized approach and collaborate closely with you and any other trades on site, taking into account your preferences, lifestyle, and objectives to create spaces that are tailored specifically to you. We believe that your space should be a reflection of your individuality and taste and if the standard IKEA cabinetry fronts are not to your liking, then we can recommend alternatives from the likes of Ren Studio and So Watt. 


Attention to Detail: We believe that true beauty lies in the details. We pay meticulous attention to every aspect of the design process, from selecting the perfect cabinet configurations to maximise functionality, helping with colour palettes and materials, to providing detailed drawings that communicate effectively so to allow for a smooth renovation process.  


Strategic Design Thinking: Our approach to interior design goes beyond aesthetics. We dive deep into understanding your needs, target audience, and functional requirements. By considering the flow of space, optimizing layouts, and incorporating intuitive design elements, we create interiors that not only look visually captivating but also enhance the overall experience for occupants.


My name is Alex Coates

I’m the owner and founder of Burra Design so firstly, welcome. I am a passionate designer and creator who believes in the transformative power of exceptional interior spaces and have 12 years experience in the home renovation industry, both in Australia and the UK. During that time I have designed many different areas of the home such as kitchens, laundries, wardrobes, home offices and media storage areas for clients. 6 years of that time, I have gained experience project managing the installation of the IKEA cabinetry in clients homes, so have built up an overall understanding of the complete process involved from start to finish, whilst also gaining a very good understanding of electrical, plumbing, gas, tiling, rendering and gyprocking. This is invaluable in creating quality designs and also gives me the ability in guiding clients through the renovation process with complete confidence, as I realise that it can be stressful and overwhelming for some people.

Anyway, that's it from me and I look forward to working with you on your projects in the future!
