New DTA technical bulletins tailor-made for time-poor designers

New DTA technical bulletins tailor-made for time-poor designers

Laundries in Kitchens
KBDi’s Education Partner, Designer Training Australia, has been working hard to create a new series of Bulletins tailor-made for time-poor designers.
They’ve worked out ten of the top technical queries that are stumping kitchen and bathroom designers across the country, and have condensed the relevant rules and regulations into easy-to-read fact sheets.
The Bulletins cover a range of issues, from merging laundries with kitchens to lighting in bathrooms to the facts about floor wastes and more.
Each Bulletin will provide you with a condensed list of references, useful definitions and short answers to complicated questions, in a clear cut and no-frills format.
Designer Training Australia are pleased to be making these ultra-useful papers freely available to KBDi Members. The first of the series – Laundries in Kitchens – is now available for download in your exclusive KBDi  Members Area, and we encourage you to log in and check it out today.

Queens Domain is an architectural landmark providing high-end residential apartments.

“Sophisticated apartment interiors with an easy luxury, classic and timeless yet fresh and full of surprises achieved through abundant natural lighting, refined colour schemes and luxurious appointments” Sonia Simpfendorfer – Creative Director, Nexus

“Custom made joinery in the kitchens, sublime backlit splashbacks and worktops custom moulded from an amazing material” Lucy Marczyk – Senior Designer, Nexus

HI-MACS in Alpine White was selected for the kitchens and butlers panty work surfaces and integrated sinks, formed wall surfaces in common areas and columns, walls and formed benches. Hi-MACS proves again that stunning aesthetics and functionality can go hand in hand.

HI-MACS is an innovative, long-lasting and elegant material that can be customised to suit any space and design style. HI-MACS allows for seamless joins, giving every surface a sleek, smooth finish. The material’s unique character allows it to be shaped to follow sharp angles or curved walls, so it can be formed to continue a bench surface into a splashback or wall panelling. Unlike other surfaces HI-MACS does not absorb spillages that may occur in daily use, leaving surfaces hygienically clean, perfect for use in both bathrooms and kitchens.

HI-MACS is available nationally through retail kitchen showrooms. Visit the Gunnersen website for showrooms based on location.
