This Tauranga home may have been a modern build, but the kitchen already felt drab, dated, and dingy. A full renovation with custom features and a chic colour palette injected style and energy into the home, delighting the owners and elevating the entire living area.

Kitchen Renovations : In Need of a Kitchen Makeover in Tauranga

This beautiful home in Bethlehem was clean and tidy but lacked the sophistication and style needed to really set it apart. The kitchen was dull and dreary due to a dated brown colour palette, and narrow spacing between the island and cupboards made the space feel closed in with inadequate room for small appliances. The room’s location, separated from the main lounge area, also made it isolating for anyone cooking. Owners Debbie and Rob craved a brighter, more inviting space as well as open plan living to really fall in love with their home again. 

Advice from Kitchen Renovation Contractors Tauranga

After meeting with Sharon to understand the Refresh process, Debbie and Rob were confident that Sharon understood their kitchen goals and could take care of all the details to provide complete end-to-end project management of the renovation. They were also impressed that Sharon had an established network of trusted professionals who could deliver excellent workmanship.

Debbie and Rob needed guidance around the design and colours, so Sharon worked with them until they settled on a concept that felt stylish and sophisticated. With Sharon remaining the single point of contact throughout the whole project, the renovation went off without a hitch.

A Brand New Look

The kitchen received a top-to-toe renovation with new cabinets, custom curved island benchtop, and floating flooring. Sharon seamlessly managed multiple contractors, including plasterers, electricians, painters, plumbers, builders, flooring installers and the kitchen design and build team.

The custom curved stone benchtop was installed with curved supports underneath and is a feature highlight of the space.

A Delightful Kitchen Design

Pendant lighting, and appliances all in black have added modern sophistication, bringing a wow factor to the interior, while floating flooring and fresh paint tie the new look together.

Floor-to-ceiling cupboards along the kitchen’s back wall have added plenty of smart pantry space, and a dedicated appliance cupboard hides away appliances while still allowing easy access for early morning coffees – particularly with integrated automatic sensor lighting.

The curved stone bench top with LED lighting beneath is a real feature, maximising the entertaining area and bringing softness to the modern space.  Find out why our customers are satisfied and happy to work with us for their renovations in Tauranga!

A Living Transformation

Sharon is also pleased with the result she was able to deliver for her client. 

“This is an amazing transformation from dark to light,” says Sharon. “The space is now bright, sophisticated, and welcoming, with fabulous flow and connection between the living spaces. Debbie and Rob are thrilled with the outcome, and it has really changed the way they live in their home.”
