KAD Win’s HIA Kitchen Design

Congratulations to Kate Anderson Design for winning the HIA Kitchen Design of the Year 2022 for the Sunshine Coast and Wide Bay region. Project Vista was a luxury modern kitchen renovation design dream, based on the Sunshine Coast for KAD.

Kate Anderson Design was engaged by the clients to transform their tied and dysfunctional kitchen into a space where the kitchen became a luxurious, bright & a modern coastal entertainers’ kitchen.

KAD Designed this project with innovative materials and finishes featuring the back lit Mario Romano Walls from Austaron Surfaces along with the Blum space step built into the kicks. The intricacy of the design detail including the lighting selections and placement, the hidden veneer pantry and wet bar/ appliance station was executed by Kate in her design and the KAD trade referral teams including plumbing, electrical and joinery installation. Adding another successful award-winning project for Kitchen Renovation by Kate Anderson Design for 2022.

KAD is truly becoming the design influencer on the Sunshine Coast for Kitchen cabinetry & joinery design and renovation.

When designing a kitchen it is so important to consider the style – sometimes being on trend dates far sooner than we would prefer, so my advice is to try to be timeless. Neutral, beach and earthy tones are key elements to consider with a pop of colour. The texture of your surfaces are also paramount to any design success, it’s broad appeal if considering selling and the longevity of that design are all important factors.
