While referring to the kitchen as ‘the heart of the home’ errs on the side of clichė, it’s also true. In modern homes, the kitchen is an indispensable room, a place not only for cooking, but socialising and congregating with friends and families.
While the kitchen has never been a space purely for function, the emphasis on well designed, custom kitchens has grown in recent years. And when New Zealanders are looking for the latest in kitchen appliances, they turn to Kouzina.
As Martin Cross, explains, “What we really are is a specialist kitchen boutique - a place where the design community can come to discover the very best European and American home appliances.”
I met Martin in Kouzina’s award-winning Auckland showroom - a place where top marques, including Bora, Sub-Zero, Miele, Liebherr and many other well-known brands live together under one roof - to learn more about the design themes and colours shaping the market.
