At The Gourmet Kitchen Company, we design elegant and bespoke Shaker kitchens. New Zealand based, our kitchens are thoughtfully designed, capturing the sophisticated look and luxurious feel of a traditional handcrafted kitchen.
Our luxury kitchens are all bespoke and thoughtfully designed to our clients’ personal taste. We incorporate refined craftsmanship and elegant finishes in all that we design, using only the finest materials and classical Shaker elements. It’s what defines our signature sophisticated style.
Our clients value the care and ease with which they are treated throughout the design journey. From the first design consultation to the finished build and installation, they know they are being well taken care of, with their own personal taste always understood.
Whether it’s a large English-style family kitchen, a smaller vintage-inspired design, or a boutique custom layout, we embrace creating bespoke and traditional kitchens that capture the timeless look and feel of the classical Shaker style, every element being beautiful, tasteful and refined. From our luxury Shaker kitchens, to our signature barn doors, to high-end bathroom vanities, we incorporate beautiful simplicity and refined craftsmanship in everything we do.
It's like our living room has become obsolete
"Our new kitchen has a classic elegance and sophisticated feel that we adore. We love that Sarah was able to design such a beautiful kitchen that also reflected our personal tastes. Now when we host dinner parties, hubby and I just seem to congregate around the kitchen drinking and nibbling. It's like our living room has become obsolete." - Karen, Auckland
A design that we absolutely loved
“We are beyond grateful to Rachel for designing our very own shaker kitchen. Rachel took everything on board, understood our vision and came up with a design that we absolutely loved. Even the finer details like the cabinet handles - there was just so much care and attention to every part of the design” - Judy, Wellington
We treat every kitchen we design like it’s our own.
That means taking the utmost care and attention to detail in our design approach, right down to the last millimetre. The kitchens we design are built to the highest standard, and in a beautifully refined and classic style.
Unafraid of a challenge, we make our clients’ dream kitchen come to life.
We understand that every family, every home, and every kitchen is unique. We embrace that. That’s why our kitchens are always designed with our clients’ vision and personal taste in mind. From the luxurious feel of the benchtops, to the beautiful tones on the stained timber cupboards, to the subtle elegant finishes on the pantry doors: Every feature is thoughtfully crafted for our clients, down to the very last cabinet handle.
We make sure each Shaker kitchen is built with sophisticated style at the forefront and smart functionality in mind.
OUR DESIGN JOURNEY
Design and consultation
Our design starts with a consultation. We talk to you, understand your vision and how you want your kitchen to fit in your home. With our experience, knowledge and eye for a tasteful traditional aesthetic, we come up with your own custom kitchen design.
Source and build
From there, we start the build, sourcing the best materials, from marble benchtops, to naturally-sourced timber cabinets, to the finest fittings. We take care to source quality and eco-conscious materials. From there, we build and craft your dream design and turn it into reality.
We’re proud to say that our installation process takes under 3 days. Our installation team are experienced in fitting kitchens with the utmost care, and with less disruption for you. It’s all so you can enjoy your beautiful new kitchen sooner.
BEAUTIFUL MATERIALS THAT ARE BUILT TO LAST
Shaker kitchens are built on a strong heritage of craftsmanship. Using only naturally-sourced timbers, the original 18th century Shaker style kitchens were built to last, with a classic aesthetic that paired functionality with beautiful design.
It’s that quality craftsmanship which lies at the core of every Gourmet Kitchen Company design.
We design with only the finest materials. It’s something we don’t compromise on. We understand that a kitchen is a lasting thing. It’s the heart of the home, made to be used day after day. That’s why a kitchen needs to be built with only the best materials and expert craftsmanship.
We also understand that New Zealanders care about the environment and that’s something we always consider when building our Shaker kitchens. Being eco-conscious is something that we’ve embraced in every design that we do.
With the environment in mind, we don’t use harsh plastics or unsafe MDF products and our timbers are all naturally-sourced from fully sustainable forests.
