Carla Simmonds - Franklin Small Projects Renovation Specialist
Having initially joined our growing business in an administration role, Carla’s passion for kitchen and bathroom renovation soon shone through and has led her development as one of our key specialists.
With a strong commitment to delivering on what we promise to our clients, Carla relishes the challenge of helping our clients to optimise those critical spaces in a home – the kitchen and bathroom.
Carla has a strong focus on detail and has also expanded her skillset into extension renovations also. Identifying problem areas and creating solutions that look fantastic and function well, is a rewarding process and one that Carla loves. Whether it’s a dreary neglected bathroom space, a poky kitchen that drives the home cook nuts, or simply a lack of useable space, Carla will be on the task like a dog with a bone!
Carla and her husband Ryan have two beautiful young children, so their home is a busy lively space. New Zealand has quickly become their much loved adopted country, after moving from their homeland in 2016. Time spent as a family is hugely important to Carla and in her spare time, you’ll find her bundling everyone into the car to head off for a day at one of the stunning beaches in the area. Playing in the sand, eating a picnic lunch, and laughing at the joy on the kid’s faces as they splash around in the sea, brings Carla much happiness. Entertaining friends is a passion also, and relaxing with friends over a shared dinner is something Carla greatly enjoys. A love of gardening means you’ll often find Carla out in her garden keeping the weeds under control, and creating spots of garden magic.
Carla loves being a part of the successful Refresh Renovations Franklin team. Being able to apply her skills and contribute to the overall success of the business, gives her great satisfaction.
