Kitchens are some of the most active parts of any home. They’re where families come together to connect, share meals, and even experiment with a little home cooking. If you’re redesigning your kitchen, then you’ll want to make sure that you get it right the first time around. Fortunately, there’s plenty of inspiration to be drawn from the finalists of the NSW HIA-CSR bathroom and kitchen awards roster this year. Here are some of the top performers you should definitely check out.
Created as part of a new two-story house, this kitchen is a tribute to the fisherman that used to live in the Bryon Bay location of the home. There’s a strong focus on natural materials like stone columns, concrete, timber drawers, cabinets, and more. The kitchen provides an instant sense of permanence and warmth. Connection to the outdoor world has been maintained by the careful placement of skylights and windows, offering a practical and light work environment.

Part bar, part kitchen, this beautiful space is built for entertaining. With most appliances like the microwave and refrigerator tucked away in the butler’s pantry you have more space to focus on hanging out with your kitchen guests, so you can manage any mess later. The materials offer a mixture of luxury and practicality, with a timber cube island in the center and a Tasmanian oak finish offering extra warmth. Aside from the extra storage space, the kitchen has also been fitted with Neil Perry appliances, a wine fridge, and even a Blanco sink.
This stunning jewel of a kitchen is a focal point in the center of an open plan living area, blending white and timber tones. No space is wasted in this area, with places carved out for extra use wherever possible. There are integrated wine storage and fridge area either side of a cooking nook, and a barely-there countertop to explore too. The timber finishes on the cupboard doors are carefully crafted and streamlined too. There’s also a touch of Carrara marble included, which frames the cooking nook perfectly.
