Creating the ultimate kitchen or bathroom fit-out comes down to a selection of key points: practicality of the layout, finishes, customisation, cost and time restraints. Both you and your clients want to make sure you are getting the best bang for your buck and there are a few different paths you can take to achieve this.
Close to home
When selecting products the first place you should look is manufacturers close to home. Australian manufacturing and local materials have many benefits for builders and homeowners alike.
International shipping is still feeling the impacts of the pandemic with less certainty to uphold promises of fast delivery. This runs the risk of projects falling behind while buying products within Australia limits this risk.
Cabinetry supplier, Kaboodle Kitchen, provides convenient and versatile joinery solutions for various interior fit-out needs, with a local manufacturing facility allowing for efficient lead times.
‘We are passionate about innovation, product development and investing in technology that will allow us to grow our manufacturing capabilities in Australia, supporting our local community,’ says Dane Thompson, Business Manager, Kaboodle Trade Division. ‘Our state-of-the-art, purpose-built facility in Melbourne allows us to manufacture selected products to specific requirements.’
Ordering products close to home also ensures that you know products are made to Australian regulations and workers’ rights are upheld. Australian drainage inventors, manufacturer and supplier Stormtech, manufactures high-quality products with locally made materials. ‘We use marine-grade 316 stainless steel for drains and grates, which is durable and long-lasting, and virgin uPVC for the modular kits,’ says Tony Creighton, Managing Director at Stormtech.
In addition to manufacturing products that adhere to regulations, the company also ensures that workers are treated fairly, aligning to Australia’s advanced regulatory environment, giving you and your client peace-of-mind.
