If you are an aficionado of luxurious kitchens, bathrooms and laundries then we have some exciting news for you. An all-encompassing one-stop shop offering products from the world’s best brands has opened in Newmarket. Going by the name of Kitchen Things Luxury Collection, the newly-minted, 900sqm showroom puts a spotlight on all that counts itself amongst the crème de la crème of the kitchen world.
More than just a place to shop, this stellar new address offers the chance to experience kitchen appliances from the likes of Wolf & Sub-Zero, Miele, Gaggenau, ASKO, Neff, BOSCH and Smeg via eight fully functioning demonstration kitchens. Accessorised to the hilt with cutting-edge hardware, resident cooking tutors and celebrity chefs will take to regularly demonstrating how each item can best be used to save you time, give you confidence when cooking for a crowd and, of course, achieve the best possible results. Worth noting is the limited edition Smeg x Dolce & Gabbana fridge which is only one of a hundred and boasts a near six-figure price tag to match.
Providing access to various technologies and products that have not before been available in New Zealand, this impressive space will be teeming with friendly staff who will be more than happy to help demonstrate how to use them. In fact, understanding the fast-paced nature at which technology is infiltrating high kitchen design is something Kitchen Things founder Mark Jones describes as pivotal to the purpose of the new space. “We are in a period of unprecedented technological change — people want a place where they can see these appliances in action and interact with them before they commit to spending a significant amount of money to bring them into their home,” the retail veteran says.
No stone is unturned with the wet areas also covered off in a dedicated Robertson Bathware area which features impressive bathroom products and fittings from Artceram, Zucchetti, Victoria & Albert and Samuel Heath not to mention the incredible Grohe programmable toilet. Various other technological and stylistic features are scattered throughout the store as well, such as the Laminam product used in the Gaggenau kitchen, wood-effect floor tiles by Jacobsen, the latest design in switches and automation from Schneider Electric used in the Sub Zero and Wolf kitchen, and a new luxury collection of lighting to complete each space.
This is arguably the world’s best experiential kitchen showroom, taking into account its unparalleled range of brands, products and services on offer to designers, architects, and their clients. Boasting impeccable attention to detail in every respect — from the highly-considered finishings to the international showroom team — Kitchen Things Luxury Collection is the only place to go if you count yourself amongst those who settle for nothing less than the best.
