SINKS Double Ceramic Sink
Every detail including the kitchen
makes a difference!
Again we have majored on the characteristic ceramic sink, but we can also supply a large variety of stainless and granite sink inserts for both over and undermount situations to suit your needs.

See our sink range here
and taps here.

Handles and  Knob examples Just the simple choice of handle or knob can make a huge difference to the style and feeling of your kitchen.

Have a look at our handle range
We have chosen fairly traditional style handles and knobs to set off our authentic kitchen furniture look. . .but there is also a large range of more contemporary handles which may suit you better.

Bench-top materialsBench-top detailing, material, colour, pattern, thickness and surface finish all play a part in the usability, durability and aesthetic appeal of your kitchen.
The more dense timbers make good tops though the old scrubbed kauri kitchen bench is a New Zealand classic and a distressed somewhat 'lived in' look can be quite charming!
Stone is also appropriate though can have some practical limitations. . .
See our top options here.

Plate rack detailThe shape and scale of the furniture together with the addition of style details like cornice, plinth, brackets and shaped legs or feet are all opportunities to tailor the look you want.

You can add pattern and texture with plate racks, artistic door vents and grills, strongly graphic wood grain and paint finish effects. . .

Timber examplesThe furniture is predominantly made from timber. . .there is a wide selection to choose from though supply can vary.

The wood can be sealed to preserve it's natural colour. . .or oiled to enhance the depth of the grain. . .or presented with a polished surface. . .or glassed for a super tough finish.

It can be painted in a variety of colours and effects. . .

Capping DetailsThe top molding, cornice or capping you chose to detail your tall and or wall furniture also indicates different styles and periods of your kitchen.

Leg or Plinth DetailsAnd likewise the plinth, kick-board or legs you detail for all your kitchen furniture will indicate style and reference to kitchen history or national origin.

Chair stylesThe chairs you choose are important because besides looking the part, they are the place where you rest. . .relax and enjoy your kitchen setting. . .your friends and family. . .good food!

We continue to find ways of increasing the range of chairs to compliment your kitchen design.

Here is our chair section.
