About Us

Our story starts in 1973 – Kathie established her business in Brisbane, Australia and over the years became known for providing outstanding kitchen and cabinetry design, excellent customer service and affordable solutions.

After many years of running the Windsor showroom, Kathie handed the helm over to Anne, Sarah and Tara who are continuing to strengthen the business’ reputation. Whether undertaking the grand kitchen project of your dreams, or looking for a functional and practical refurb on a budget, our experienced team can help you turn your vision into a reality.

We love kitchens

Kitchens are uniquely challenging spaces. Nowhere else in the home are form and function so paramount to the success of the room. The importance of the kitchen goes far beyond the mere function of preparing food.  Kitchens are the hub of the home, the congregating point for family and friends, the conference room, homework station, the informal bar, the very centre of household activity. They can act as the selling point for many homes, or be the show stopping centrepiece of a property.

Our passion starts with kitchens, but is by no means limited to them. The knowledge and experience gained here allows us to extend our critical thinking to all areas of home and office storage and cabinetry design.

We are expert problem solvers

Balancing the many unique functions of a kitchen, along with the needs of all users, while creating a sense of style, identity and aesthetics is an ever challenging, but extremely rewarding process. This creative problem solving keeps the work we do dynamic and thought provoking. Every kitchen is different, as is every client and their individual requirements. Each day brings new and exciting challenges to the designers here at Kitchens by Kathie.

We care about our clients

Our clients come first and foremost at Kitchens by Kathie. We pay particular attention to the details – during your first consultation we will review both the initial layout and all of the finishes selections with you, in order to produce an obligation-free quote. We offer un-biased advice on the huge choice of materials and products available & pride ourselves on presenting you with all of the facts and considerations to weigh up before selecting your material choices. We don’t believe in the ‘hard sell’, and you can rest assured that the quote we deliver will be tailored to your needs, budget and lifestyle.

Our Brisbane-based manufacturing facility also allows us to custom-make cabinets for each individual client, meaning you are not restricted to set standard sizes. This, combined with our designer expertise, enables us to offer our clients something different that will fit their space perfectly, all at an affordable price.

Many of our clients go on to become long term friends and advocates of the business. Some clients are now onto their third or fourth kitchen project, and we often complete work for the children and even grandchildren of some of our original patrons.

We would love for you to become part of the Kitchens by Kathie story – if you are looking at renovating your kitchen or another space in your home, our showroom is the perfect place to start. Feel free to contact us today and book an appointment, or simply drop in during opening hours for a coffee and a chat!

What our clients say

Nothing was too much trouble for Kathie and her very competent and professional team and as we got to know how easy they are to work with, we increased the scope of work to also include a new library extension, entertainment unit and study nook. We will only ever use and recommend Kitchens by Kathie.

– Christine and Ian

I just wanted to thank you for the kitchen, bench tops are now installed and look great. The colour and finish is fabulous and I am extremely happy with them. The kitchen feels much bigger! Thanks again for making this a very problem and stress free reno.

– Margaret Kerrigan

We are delighted with our new kitchen and would like to express our appreciation to you for the quality service and high standard of workmanship applied to the job. We would have no hesitation in recommending Kitchens by Kathie to anyone contemplating a new kitchen.
