Designers Comment

A very grand look.

A lot of time went into making sure the layout worked in the room. This included minimalising bulky looking units and making sure the proportions of the overall look tied into the rest of the house.

A fantastic result that the owners were very happy with.



"My husband and I had a definite idea of what we wanted our kitchen to be. We wanted to bring modern convenience to a classic 1909 home while keeping the kitchen practical, clean and easy for entertaining. Highlighting features like the hundred year old carved Kauri pieces we had collected was important to us and took extra attention in the design, finish and installation stages.

George patiently listened to us and bought together all of the elements of our vision creating the perfect kitchen space and life style in a very timely manner.

Bays actually completed two kitchens for us on this property. One large and classic, the other small and modern. We were equally happy with the outcome of each. From initial meeting to the final installation touches, Bays Joinery were very professional.

We would highly recommend the Bays Joinery team for any project."

Rose and J Norness.
