Modern Kitchens offers a comprehensive design, fabrication and installation service that takes you from concept to completion. The important things – like colour, feel, flow and aesthetic – are your domain, and you are welcome to lean on our experience. We can take care of the construction and project management side of things, keeping across tradespeople and any necessary paperwork.

Custom Cabinet Design

Our workshop staff custom-fabricate cabinets, shelves, wardrobes, drawers, and more; all in our fabrication workshop on Hull Road, Mt Maunganui. Over the last 40 years Modern Kitchens has striven to keep ahead of the competition in terms of quality. Today, many of our fabrication machines are computer-controlled for the finest tolerances possible. However, the assembly, the details and the quality of our cabinetry all come down to our experience and expertise.

Modern Kitchens offer a 10-year Workmanship Warranty on all work. We service Tauranga and surrounds, and the Western Bay of Plenty through to Waihi.

Kitchens & Sculleries

Kitchens are our namesake. We are passionate about beautiful, functional, bespoke kitchens.

The configuration of your new kitchen can be completely customised. All the finest surfaces, appliances, fittings and fixtures are available to suit your particular style and preferences.

Other Projects

From lounge entertainment centres to bathroom vanities, nook storage or built-in desks – our custom cabinetry excels in every area of a home. We use clever design and draw from a range of aesthetic styles to achieve beautiful and enduring solutions. Talk to Modern Kitchens about your next custom cabinetry project today.


Utility is the most important factor in a great laundry, but there’s no need to sacrifice aesthetic. A custom-printed glass backsplash or top-quality mixer can make the room a joy to use. Features like push-to-open cupboards, floor-to-ceiling cabinetry and integrated lighting all make the most of sometimes pokey laundry rooms.


Wardrobes, and especially walk-in wardrobes, quickly become cluttered without serious consideration and well-fitting furniture. Modern Kitchens can custom design and install any kind of wardrobe to your needs and specifications – measured to the millimetre and fabricated here in Mt Maunganui.

Project Management

For the past 40 years, Modern Kitchens have been in the business of renovating and changing homes for the better. It makes sense that we would have a network of experts at the ready to help us achieve our consistently high standards. Quality and efficiency are both improved with an experienced project manager.

Design & Planning

We will guide you through all the design considerations and choices. Once you’re mostly decided, we will source everything from our suppliers, and book the necessary tradespeople (plumbers, electricians, tilers, etc).

Having a professional oversee the installation process can pay for itself before it even starts. All kinds of headaches can be avoided with foresight and experience. By managing the project we take responsibility for getting things right.

Finishing & Details

A completed project means done and literally dusted. No detail is forgotten when Modern Kitchens are running the show. Rest assured that your new kitchen, bathroom or utility room will meet your expectations.

Our project management service covers anything that’s necessary to bring your new kitchen, bathroom, wardrobe or laundry to life.

We will arrange for suitably-qualified tradespeople to carry out anything required. Builders for anything structural, plumbers for shifting pipes and drains, gasfitters for new or existing gas lines, tilers for bespoke tile work, professional painters for pristine paint jobs, experienced floor layers, and Registered Electricians.

The keys to bringing all these people into harmony are our design, vision and specifications. The keys to getting it all done to plan are our persistence, steely resolve and management experience. All you will need to do is let us in!

3D Virtual Modelling

Modern Kitchens uses industry-leading Computer-Aided Design (CAD) to develop and blueprint your new kitchen, bathroom, laundry or wardrobe.

The most important aspects of the design process are the choices. Each choice can have a meaningful impact on the overall look of the project, but very few people have the imagination to visualise and appreciate all the details at once.

What makes our CAD system so powerful is the ability to see the aesthetic effects of changing the benchtops, sinks, tiles, cabinetry, handles, wall colours, configuration, sizes, appliances – everything. Technology has progressed over the past few years and CAD has become far more useful and lifelike than ever before.

Come into the Modern Kitchens showroom for a colour consult, and we will show you. It’s something you’ll have to see for yourself!
