We take a look at 5 incredible Western Australian winners from the KBDI’s industry-renowned Designer Awards, proving once again that WA kitchens & bathrooms deliver the goods when it comes to breathtaking design
1. KBDi Kitchen Designer of the Year Award – Large Kitchens Award
(Dawn Metcalfe, Western Cabinets)
A complete reconfiguration of an existing space was required to achieve this graceful kitchen area, where square meterage was borrowed from an adjacent powder room and laundry. The judges admired Dawn Metcalf of Western Cabinets’ clever zoning of spaces, and loved the refined elegance of the finishes.
2. KBDi Bathroom Designer of the Year Award – Small Bathrooms Award
(Maggie Milligan, Town & Country Kitchen Design)
The judges loved the furnished feel of this dramatic bathroom, styled around the client’s existing cupboard unit. The long, narrow space was cleverly transformed and tastefully styled by Maggie Milligan of Town & Country Kitchen Design. From the black and white Hampton tiles to the profiled vanity and stunning chandelier, the bathroom is a visual treat.
3. Small Kitchens Award
Retaining the spectacular view of the Perth city skyline was a key component of the brief, and strata requirements of the 1960s apartment building challenged designer Robert Mazzilli. The result was a success, with a lovely small kitchen meeting all of the client’s needs.
4. Medium Kitchens Award
(Sue Jansen, Kitchen Capital WA Pty Ltd)
The client was seeking integration between their existing kitchen and a newly regenerated outdoor area, plenty of bench space and ample storage. Sue Jansen of Kitchen Capital WA Pty Ltd delivered on all accounts, with a well-planned kitchen that is as pretty as it is practical.
5. Large Bathrooms Award
(Kia Douglas, Western Cabinets)
The American walnut detailing in this beautiful bathroom takes centre stage and is gracefully complemented with lovely organic shapes in the sanitary ware. The judges appreciated the thoughtful response of Kia Douglas of Western Cabinets to a demanding brief, and the careful restraint in finishing the elegant design.
