KBDi Australian Kitchen Designer of the Year 2023
The panel loved every part of this project: from the designer’s clever concept to the comprehensive plan set, the kitchen design was superbly executed. The material selections were both practical and pretty, meeting the client’s brief for a functional family kitchen with a warm and soft palette. With the homeowners being avid entertainers, the kitchen needed to accommodate all kinds of events, and the designer delivered, planning the space to a tee. Overall, it was a clear winner, and the panel were pleased to declare this entrant the KBDi Australian Kitchen Designer of the Year.
KBDi Australian Bathroom Designer of the Year 2023
This project was a hands-down bathroom favourite for the panel. From the gently curving solid surface benchtops encircling the space to the softly textured Venetian plastered walls, the bathroom exudes a gentle ebb and flow feel. Brushed copper details add just the right amount of glimmer, and a thoughtful lighting plan offers an ocean moon glow and practical illumination, too. The concept was well presented, and the documentation was flawless – a fantastic submission all round.

KBDi Outdoor Kitchens
This outdoor kitchen offers everything a keen entertainer could ask for. The olive-hued cabinetry is well camouflaged with the gorgeous green backdrop of trees, but the outdoor cooking experience is on full show. The panel loved the designer’s thoughtful planning in linking the space to the adjoining areas, creating a seamless flow between indoors and out.
The judges loved the beachy vibe of this coastal home laundry. A sandy-coloured palette sets the scene, and matt and natural finishes add just the right type of texture. Brushed copper fixtures and fittings link the laundry to the adjoining renovated spaces, and fluted tiles discretely dress a curved corner. The layout is well-planned and practical, and the end result is perfect.

KBDi Traditional or Themed Design 2023
The designer has created a perfect fusion of federation and Bondi-Beach style. Traditional elements like the tapware, sink and handles sit seamlessly alongside contemporary panelled doors and Snowy Mountain whites. An ogee edge adds heritage appeal to the stone-topped island, and large sliding doors connect the light, bright kitchen to a leafy green backyard.
