HLF - HOME LIVING: NORTH WEST, Tuesday, July 5, 2011 3 More than just cooking » ADVERTISING FEATURE HOMELIVING ANA TALDE Kitchens are no longer just places for preparing food. Picture: ELIOT COHEN -- Zeitgeist Photography Kitchens have evolved into fashion features in our homes where we create, meet and entertain families and friends. Kitcheners Kitchens specialise in designing stylish and practical spaces catering for all needs. Director Michael Kitchener believes a well-designed kitchen reduces the amount of time spent walking between stations. ''We will make any shape, any size, any colour, any finish at the same price of a modular kitchen company,'' he said. Mr Kitchener and his team will help you uncover the ideal kitchen shape and determine a balance between the five kitchen zones -- consumables, non-consumables, cleaning, preparation and cooking. ''We consider the dynamics of the spaces. During planning, we consider what is utilised more and how they relate with each other,'' he said. Kitcheners Kitchens' designers can also come up with a selection of features for your dream kitchen. Kitcheners Kitchens started in 2005 and has a reputation for excellence in service. It was named NSW finalist in Telstra's Business Awards 2009 and a finalist in the City of Sydney Business Awards.
