Accurate Machine Cut
With our state of the art CNC Machine, Edger Bander and Table Saw we can guarantee accurate cutting. This type of machinery allows us to provide very accurate quotes with minimal wastage as the material is maximized when it comes to cutting and edging.
Our machinery gives us the flexibility to manufacture full custom-sized cabinetry, meaning you will not end up with awkward layouts as you might with a cut to size/ pre-manufacture cabinet maker.
Choice Of Finishes
2Pac (Polyurethane Finish) is very similar to the paint on your car. It is a 2 part product consisting of a hardener and a paint component.
The upside of 2Pac (VS Laminate) is that you don’t have to edge a door which gives a better finish. The range of colours you get to choose from is much wider than laminate as you can choose any paint colour (Dulux, Taubmans…)
As with car paint, maintenance is important. You should never use abrasive cleaning product like gumption or cream cleanser as it will leave abrasions and marks on your 2pac fronts.
When looked after well, 2Pac will last beautifully for many, many years to come.
Laminate is a more affordable product than 2pac. The downsides being that every door, drawer fronts, panels will have a 1mm edge all around and you do not have as many colours to choose from.
The upside is that you can get laminates in different finishes (timber grains, veined stone…) and it is also a very hard-wearing product. Preferable to have laminate if you have small children running around as it is more hardy.

Kitchen Finishes, Accessories and Appliances
Our range of kitchen benchtops will suit your lifestyle and budget. Options include:
If you are running tight on budget, this can be your best option. Laminate benchtops are available in a variety of colours and finishes. It also comes in stone or marble resemblance. You can even avail them in matt finish. Have a look at some of the best laminate benchtops in town- https://www.laminex.com.au/
Natural Stone Kitchen Benchtops
Stones are naturally beautiful and possess the power to make each slab appear unique. While marble is a more popular choice amongst bakers as its ideal for rolling out pastries, it gets easily stained by things such as vinegar, red wine, coffee and spices, etc. Granite benchtops, on the other hand, is less porous than marble and therefore more stain-resistant.
Timber Kitchen Benchtops
Timber benchtops are a culmination of different solid pieces that have been laminated together. Finishing is required before using benchtops made up of timber/wood. With proper oiling, they can be even made to absorb spills. Another material that’s in vogue in the benchtop market is bamboo. They are highly durable and can be refinished after a couple of years to make it’s as good as new.
Engineered Stone Kitchen Benchtops
When crushed quartz is bonded with resin, the resultant material is referred to as an engineered stone. Benchtops made of engineered stone are available in a multitude of colours and finishes. If you wish to purchase it in the form of an entire slab, the length can be unrestricted. Anything beyond 3m however would require joins. Here’s a specimen of how perfect engineered stone benchtops look like – http://www.essastone.com.au/
Polished Concrete Kitchen Benchtops
Polished concrete benchtops boast an amazing raw finish. They are formed on the site and require the additional sub-floor to support its weight. They can be customised in a variety of ways. You can either seal them before use or get them finished to appear rough or refined. They can even be coloured with the help of tinting.
Our custom kitchen cabinets can suit your needs and design preferences.
Kitchen cabinet “carcasses” are commonly manufactured using medium-density fibreboard(MDF) which often performs better than solid wood in many areas. Doors and drawer fronts can be made using laminate, vinyl-wrap or Two Pack depending on your desired finish. Laminate is the most affordable option; whereas Two Pack is the most expensive as it requires a more time-consuming production process. Vinyl-wrap is another affordable option which provides a luxurious, gloss-finish that is found in numerous high-end kitchens. Due to the similarities of the two Pack and vinyl-wrap finishes, sometimes even professionals find it difficult to decipher which method was used for a particular project.

How often should a kitchen be updated?
A kitchen should last you 20 years. These days with trends moving so quickly and new products hitting the market every month, I would say 10-15 years if budget allows.
How can you make your kitchen as functional as possible?
Good design can make any space functional. Use of clever hardware for cabinetry like drawers and pull out units will help you maximise the storage.
Good placement of fridge, sink and cooktop will also help the “flow” of the kitchen.
Should you do some DIY in a kitchen renovation?
Only if you are qualified and confident. If you are able to do plumbing/electrical yourself, it would help you save.
When it comes to DIY kitchens, we often see people that think it will be cheaper to get a flat pack kitchen and put it in themselves, but what they don’t realise is that the price of the flat pack kitchen doesn’t include labour.
How much will your new kitchen cost?
Depending on your space, finishes selections, design and hardware the price of a kitchen can vary greatly.
Should you design a kitchen for your own tastes, or for potential buyers?
That really comes down to the customers. Someone who is designing a kitchen for their forever home should definitely design the kitchen to suit their needs and taste.
If the customer is thinking of re sale value, it is always good to keep in mind future buyers and what they might like.
Can I improve my kitchen layout?
Sometimes, there will be room for improvement in an existing kitchen. Usually starting from scratch is the best way to go.
Nowadays we are moving towards open plan living which means combining the kitchen, living and dining areas into one big space which means ripping out walls and creating opening and doing a full on renovation as opposed to adding on to the existing kitchen.
Is there anything I can do about my corner cabinets?
Corners are always a bit tricky but in recent years, cabinet making hardware companies have been working on and releasing new pieces of hardware to help maximise the storage and use the corners efficiently.
