Australia’s best kitchens are found in Queensland
The Sunshine State is also the winning state, with local firms cleaning up at the HIA-CSR Australian Home of the Year awards
Two Queensland companies came out on top for kitchen design in this year’s HIACSR Australian Home of the Year awards.
Enigma Interiors in Capalaba took out the prestigious Australian Kitchen of the Year award, providing a showstopping mosaic-tile splashback as the visual anchor for the entire room (above).
The judges called it a standout feature, noting “vibrant creativity, skilled and patient workmanship”. They said this unforgettable element worked as a piece of art for the open-plan living room.
“Beautifully executed, other features include: full appliance integration, a working butler’s pantry with stainlesssteel benchtops and an additional oven for the caterer in the family; and boothstyle seating for entertaining or everyday living,” they said.
Sublime Architectural Interiors in Sumner Park won the Australian Kitchen Design award, with judges saying there was plenty to admire in its kitchen (below), from origami pendant lights to a silver acrylic-encased island benchtop.
They said the linear design seamlessly integrated the inside of the home with the outdoor component of the kitchen.
“The mixtures of grey tones contrast with the timber detailing, showing the thoughtful use of multiple materials and the superior attention to the technical details needed to execute this design,” the said.
