Alfresco Dining, Kitchens and Bathrooms
When you start designing your perfect kitchen, we make sure that you will be dealing directly with the owners of our business, not commission sales people and we offer a one-stop-shop for all kitchen items and appliances. For these reasons, as well as our dedication to the highest standards, we were recently featured in an article by Bupa Home Insurance on the latest trends in kitchen design, 'How to Create the Perfect Australian Kitchen'.
The two predominant trends we’ve noticed growing of late, are the sleek modern look or the traditional ‘shaker-style’ Hamptons look which suits the old Queenslander homes in our local area. The kitchen is rising in importance as probably the most important area in the house for both living and entertaining, with many people even opting for total outdoor kitchens as well.
To achieve these looks we recommend quartz-like bench tops, such as Silestone, Caeserstone, Smartstone and Quantum Quartz and handle-less kitchen cabinetry for that desirable sleek look. Also making a comeback also are subway tiles laid in a brick pattern as splashbacks.

Caesarstone’s Leads the way with new ideas
Caesarstone Australia are so pleased to have collaborated with Three Birds Renovations for their House Five Renovation.
Caesarstone’s White Attica Design is now available
Slabs of Caesarstone's highly anticipated White Attica™ design
are now available to order in Queensland.
Caesarstone’s new Statuario Maximus™ Marble
This inspired design features broad warm grey veins sweeping across its soft white base colour, further enriched by delicate background veins.
Online only sample orders are now available. Due to the scale of this design, samples are intended only as a tonal representation of the background colour. Please refer to your nearest showroom or display to view the full design.
With Statuario Maximus’s large scale vein pattern, we encourage those of you that select this design to view your actual full slabs first hand at the stonemason prior to them commencing fabrication. We also recommend selecting mitred aprons to achieve the best surface-to-edge pattern continuity for any bench top greater than 20mm thick.
