2019 HIA Australian Kitchen of the Year

Winner: Darren James Interiors, Queensland

Before hundreds of industry leaders at the prestigious HIA–CSR Australian Housing Awards on 25 May, the final night of the HIA 2019 National Conference in Perth, Queensland-based Darren James Interiors was awarded 2019 Australian Kitchen of the Year.

Meticulously detailed and installed with precision, the quality of workmanship that was evident in every corner of the winning kitchen was a distinguishing feature that caught the judges’ eyes. With an asymmetrical layout adding interest and a balanced contrast between dark and light, the overall aesthetic is industrial but refined.

A beautiful custom-designed timber island bench sits below an eye-catching pendant assortment, highlighting this exciting centre space within the kitchen and bringing the light and dark hues together.

The Australian Kitchen of the Year Award acknowledges quality of workmanship in the manufacture and installation of a complete single residential kitchen.

The HIA–CSR Australian Housing Awards are the ultimate platform to showcase the talents of the nation’s top builders and designers. Winners are selected from state-based finalists, with awards in 22 separate categories.

Queensland won a total of three awards on the night, also finding success in the Apartment Complex and Outdoor Project categories.
