We want to understand your family’s needs and your vision for your new kitchen and living spaces. Our team of degree qualified designers will work with you to design a kitchen that looks great, works well, and is a pleasure to be in – every day.
From the initial design concept through to installation, our experienced team will guide you through every step of your new kitchen project. We coordinate a team of contractors, from plumbers to painters and ensure your kitchen is completed with minimal stress and disruption.
We’ve been helping North Shore home owners for over 30 years. So when we offer our unique Total Trust Double Guarantee – first on your deposit, and then a 10 year guarantee on our cabinetry - you can rest easy knowing your stunning new kitchen will stand the test of time.
We invite you to come and visit our showroom or to call on 09 443 3264 so we can get started on your kitchen and lifestyle transformation.
“We had a great experience with the Kitchen Studio North Shore team. Nisa listened and developed our ideas transforming our space to work functionally and it looks beautiful. The follow up communication and service continued with Fredrik and his operations team who were very knowledgeable, helpful and understanding. We are extremely happy with the workmanship from Aaron the installer which was of the highest standard. The end result is fantastic and we are happy to recommend them.”
Recently we put our house on the market and the agent has commented that the kitchen has been the selling point. The feedback from viewings has also mentioned this. In fact it has probably meant the difference between selling quickly and it being more difficult, given that we have a plaster house.
The level of workmanship shown by the installers was exceptional. Two years on and there hasn’t been a single day when I wished the layout was any different. It was well worth going with a trusted and known brand, rather than simply looking for the cheapest deal.
In mid 2015, as part of a general update planned for our home, I visited Kitchen Studio Albany to get a ‘feel’ for replacing our kitchen.
I had a pretty clear vision of how I wanted my new kitchen and Margaux, the designer who worked on our project, listened thoughtfully then quietly persevered to make that vision come to fruition. She was very helpful and supportive through the whole project and she is missed now the kitchen is finished. Lisa coordinated the project well and was always friendly and approachable.
The Kitchen Studio team made the whole process as stress-free as a kitchen renovation can be and produced our new kitchen with a ‘nothing-is-too-much-trouble’ attitude. We highly recommend them to prospective clients.

The brief from the client was simple; more space, organised storage, a family-size fridge and plenty of workspace. At the heart of this home, the kitchen needed to be spacious and functional, yet stylish and sophisticated, fitting in with this modern family home.
The original kitchen in this residence had a dated 1980’s aesthetic and was isolated from its surrounding living spaces. The home owners wanted a complete renovation with a fresh take on the country style and improved accessibility and usability.
A Natural Approach
Natural materials feature in this contemporary kitchen. They help to visually warm the space and the repetition of these finishes throughout the rest of the home, create a strong sense of visual continuity.
A Modern Villa
This project was based on an addition to, and a reconstruction of a villa. The aim of the addition was to bring the detailing of the home into the 21st Century. The kitchen space was also required to function as a laundry.
First and foremost an open plan kitchen with plenty of bench space was wanted to transform this space. This needed openness to maintain the connection with adjoining rooms allowing and encouraging social interaction when food is being prepared.
Personal To You
Whether designing a new residence or renovating an existing one, the kitchen is likely to be a stand-out feature.
When a client comes to me, I try to meet his requirement – from the initial concept drawings to the finished product.
The Possibilities Are Endless
It's a common question for kitchen designers – what is the best way to improve the presence and functionality of a kitchen, when limited by its size?
Small Space Solutions
This small kitchen runs incredibly well because work patterns have been carefully planned out and storage has been maximised.
Beach Side Inside
The client wanted a bright kitchen that has a beachside ambience with an incorporated laundry.
It was important to maintain the connection between the dining room and the kitchen as it provides an environment that encourages family time.
The client wanted a kitchen with a timeless quality that uses a classic colour palette and has lots of bench space. A key requirement for the client was to have plenty of easily accessible storage.
