Kitchen Cabinets & Cupboards

plywood kitchen

We are based in Henderson that creates custom kitchen cabinets that blend quality, design, and functionality. Using durable materials like New Zealand-made melamine, Baltic Birch plywood, and top-notch hardware from brands like Blum and Hettich, we promise both durability and style. We offer a solid birch option that reflects mid-century design, and a modern style with a durable NZ-made MDF carcass, available with either plywood or MDF fronts. All our cabinets are pre-assembled for easy installation, tailored to your needs, and come in a range of trendy colors and finishes to match your modern space. With our use of quality materials and the latest CNC technology, we ensure precision and reliability in every product we make.

Cabinetry Styles

We have four unique kitchen cabinet styles to make modern, Scandinavian, mid-century modern, and shaker kitchens. We prioritize quality, crafting our cabinets from locally sourced New Zealand MDF, poplar plywood, and Baltic birch. These materials ensure both quality and durability, with thicknesses ranging from 16 to 19mm to create lasting kitchens.

1. PLY One

Our Ply One Style cabinet frame is built from New Zealand-made MDF, a common and standard choice for many kitchen cabinets. MDF with a melamine face offers a smoother feel compared to melamine chipboard, making it the most cost-effective option. For the kitchen front, we use plywood for added durability and quality.

2. PLY One +

The “PLY ONE+” kitchen style sets itself apart by having the horizontal rail flat and built into the frame, dividing the kitchen’s look. It’s especially great for shaker-style kitchens if you like seeing both vertical and horizontal lines in the design. These lines can be painted in contrasting colors to enhance the kitchen’s appearance.

3. PLY HDL (Handle-less)

Our PLY HDL system offers a sleek, handle-less (shadowline kitchen cabinet) design. Instead of the usual aluminium Gola profile, it uses a vertical rail setup for more finger space. Kitchen fronts come with either a mitre or a cove cut at the top for easy pulling. This design keeps your kitchen looking clean, uncluttered, and stylish.

4. Solid Birch Cabinet

If you prefer MDF free kitchen and dislike voids in poplar plywood, our cabinets is made entirely of strong Baltic birch. This includes the carcass, doors, and drawer fronts of the kitchen cabinets, ensuring top quality. Birch plywood has a beautiful appearance, offering a stylish mix of looks and durability that matches well with a modern clean and simple design. 

Hardware & Storage Solutions

We offer a variety of top-quality storage solutions for your kitchen cabinets, including the smooth and space-saving LeMans corner units, durable Blum lift systems for upper cabinets, efficient Hettich SlideLine for sliding doors, and convenient oil pull-outs in different sizes.

SlideLine -Hettich

For our wall and base cabinets, we avoid using doors that slide in grooves because they can get dirty and sticky over time. Instead, we use a system called Hettich Slideline. This means the doors have a track at the bottom with a runner, allowing them to open and close smoothly. This design keeps them cleaner for longer and ensures they operate smoothly for a long time.

Kitchen Grid System

Our kitchen designs focus on being smart and efficient. We use a unique planning system based on a 768mm grid to layout the kitchen, which allows us to divide the space into either 4 or 6 splits. This approach ensures our cabinets are not only space-saving but also user-friendly. Everything, including cabinets and appliances, fits together seamlessly, giving you the freedom to customize your kitchen to your liking, no matter the size. Our designs stand out for their clarity and structure, utilizing grid heights of 192mm for 4-split setups and 128mm for 6-spit setups.
