A Kitchen with a WOW Factor

While Sharon and Neil Bramley have just moved into their newly built home in Whitford after living for 27 years in Howick, it took them almost a year to translate their ideas about a dream kitchen into reality.


Sharon’s beautifully designed kitchen at their new home in Whitford is a fine reflection of her passion for cooking. A lot of thought has gone into the design element and layout as well as the functionality of the open plan kitchen. Stunning views of the Rangitoto Island imprinted on the glass splashback immediately catch the eye.

“The landscape on glass is by photography artist Lucy G,” says Sharon, an accountant by profession who enjoys working from her new home office.

Adding an instant wow factor is the stunning Titanium granite island bench top that is a point of interest in the beautifully designed kitchen. The Brazilian granite bench top with glinting veins of gold quartz and black is simply fabulous. Teamed up with wood grain cabinets and stainless work surfaces, it’s an absolute stand out!

For someone who loves making preserves and cheese, a practical walk-in pantry is just perfect for Sharon who can’t wait to join the bakeoffs that her lovely new neighbours often host.

All of Sharon’s ideas for her dream kitchen were expertly executed by the Jag Kitchens design consultant team in their showroom, located in the Botany Town Centre.

Jag Kitchens specialises in custom designed kitchens and has its own manufacturing plant. The staff also use a state-of-the-art 3D computer design programme to show clients beforehand how their new kitchen will look.

The functional and stylish kitchen with customised cabinetry fits the space well.

Jag Kitchens worked with Sharon to ensure she understood the look, feel and style she was after. Customised cabinetry allows Jag to create all cabinetry to whatever length and depth the client needs.

Malcolm McLagan, owner of Jag Kitchens who was also onsite, sums it up saying, “It’s all come together beautifully.”
