A kitchen with a WOW factor

Sharon Bramley with Jag Kitchens Designer Angela Purdy.

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 of an ideal kitchen that she had dreamt of were expertly executed by design consultant Angela Purdy of Jag Kitchens in the Botany Town Centre.

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

“It was after a lot of discussions and changes to the original kitchen design plan,” both Sharon and Angela laugh saying as they exchange a knowing look that says they thoroughly enjoyed the process.

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

Angela who has been working for four years as a design consultant with Jag Kitchens, worked with Sharon to ensure she understood the look, feel and style her client was after. She says: “Customised cabinetry allows us to make all our cabinets whatever length and depth the client wants.”

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

Everyone unanimously agrees to it.
