In this kitchen, by owner and designer Annika Rowson, the suspended brass hood offers a bold contrast to the matt black wall cabinetry and picks up the subtle tones in the white Corian benchtop.

With kitchens today almost invariably being open plan, their design is about much more than functionality the ideal kitchen also needs to fit aesthetically and seamlessly into the adjacent living spaces.

Designer Annika Rowson says her approach to this is to make the kitchen look more like furniture than a kitchen.

"I tend to look at space differently and have an individual take on the design,"she says. "There's a lot of timber and natural products in my kitchens, creating a style that's eclectic, yet still timeless."

Designer Annika Rowson draws on her ten years black
Designer Annika Rowson draws on her ten years experience in the kitchen industry to create award winning kitchens.

That approach has not gone unnoticed. Not only are her design skills in high demand in New Plymouth and the surrounding areas, but her kitchens have picked up awards in the Trends International Design Awards and from the NKBA.

But there's more to a well-designed kitchen than just good looks. It needs to be backed by top quality manufacture to ensure it works well and lasts the distance.

"Working with my husband Brad, we manage each job right the way through from the initial design, to manufacture in our own factory and installation. Our focus is on producing quality not quantity."

Now in her tenth year as a designer, Rowson says most of her work tends to be in the middle to upper end of the market.
