The history of Kitchens by Wood Design dates back four generations. Since the foundation of EC Contracting in 1931, through to Kitchens by Wood Design designing and manufacturing custom made cabinetry has been part of our makeup. 1950, the company is passed into the hands of the second generation, focusing on creative graphics and designs. Situated on the now bustling street of Broardway, Newmarket, The Design Centre managed by HM Foster was the early beginings of design and marketing work for companies like Fisher and Paykel, Sleeyhead, Watties Food and Tip Top, just to name a few. Twenty year later, The Design Centre has now grown considerably and in order to cope with the demand and staff numbers is now located at 56 Broadway. By 1970, the Design Centre has stepped a step further creating scale models for building, roading and commercial projects. The 1980’s has brought the third generation into the company, now designing and manufacturing custom office fitouts. February 2005, Wood Design was established in Kerikeri, and the love of designing and manufacturing has been passed onto the fourth generation.


Kitchens by Wood Design employ a team of qualified designers. Your kitchen to us is like a work of art, and a functional one at that! Therefore fastidious thought and detail enters into your kitchen concept drawings, ensuring that functionality and aesthetics of your kitchen design best fit your individual lifestyle.


With a top end and high tech manufacturing plant, our company can guarantee quality. With complete control over the entire manufacturing project, we can assure the quality and the time frame of your kitchen project. IMOS programing, CNC routering, wide-belt sander, our own factory spray booth, and in-house stone fabrication factory all contribute towards the finest results.

Having our own team of qualified and registered stone fabricators working in tandem with our manufacturing and installation teams means that your complete fit-out can be achieved within a tight time schedule, rather than waiting for other tradespeople to complete e.g. benchtops, splashbacks etc.


Whether you’re after engineered stones, solid timber or veneer fronts, glass, or a fine quality lacquered finish, Wood Design is able to meet your requirements.


Quality is our mission. Our kitchens are fully fitted with European hardware, Blum and Hettich. Both brands have a lifetime warranty.
