Your perfect kitchen design

Harris & Thurston has been handcrafting bespoke kitchens in Kerikeri, Paihia, Opua, Russell, and further throughout the Bay of Islands since 2006.

Because your custom kitchen is handmade, we can design it so you’re able to make the most out of your space. No matter how large or small your kitchen, you will love the finished result.

The first step is working with you on your ideal kitchen design. We’ll visit you to discuss:

Kitchen style

Do you prefer a sleek, modern kitchen design – or something more classic? Whatever you have in mind, we can create it for you.

Use of space

What’s important to you in a kitchen? How do you intend to use it? Are you a gourmet chef, or is the kitchen a family space – or both? We’ll figure out the best kitchen layout for your needs.

Materials and colours

There’s a wealth of options to choose from; we can help you create a bespoke kitchen design for you.


3D modelling of your kitchen design

You’ll be able to see your bespoke kitchen design via 3D modelling in CAD software. This allows you to make confident design decisions, and enables us to give you an accurate price. Unless you make changes to your kitchen plans, the price we quote is the price you’ll pay.

If you decide not to proceed with Harris & Thurston, our design work is chargeable at $85 plus GST per hour, with a minimum charge of $200 plus GST. This is fully refundable should you wish to proceed with your order at a later date.

Kitchen cabinets

Because all our kitchens are customised to your needs, we can provide you with practical and innovative storage solutions to make the most out of your space. Whether you have an awkward corner that you’d like to be more useable, or would like clever pull-outs for spices and jars – we can incorporate custom kitchen storage into your bespoke kitchen design.

Whereas flat kitchen cupboard doors are very popular, we can also create panelled finishes on your cabinets and drawers.

Kitchen cabinets are available in a wide variety of finishes. Think: paint, lacquer, laminate, glass, and more. We can also source a variety of native or exotic timbers for your custom kitchen cabinets.

Your bespoke cabinetry can also feature inbuilt lighting, whether for practical purposes or to make a design statement.

Kitchen Benchtops

There’s a stunning array of kitchen benchtops to choose from: solid timber, ply, laminates, Formica, melamine, stainless steel, acrylic, infinity benchtops, stone, granite, marble, and more.

The finishing touches


Bespoke kitchen splashbacks can be as subtle or attention-grabbing as you wish.


You can also choose from a huge range of handles. We recommend Archant, as their range is extensive and great quality.

Hinges and Runners

We always use and recommend Häfele. Their soft-closing, push-to-open and self-opening doors and drawers are backed by a lifetime warranty.
