The New Zealand public has spoken and their votes for the best kitchen and bathroom of 2022 have been counted. The 2022 NKBA People’s Choice Kitchen Award goes to Danielle Fistonich of BML Group NZ for her work on a stunning Taupaki Residence. While the 2022 NKBA People’s Choice Bathroom Award goes to Emma Morris of Eterno Design for her work on ‘Fergus House Bathroom’.

Danielle Fistonich from BML Group in West Auckland captured the attention of the public with her light, warm and engaging kitchen design for a home in Taupaki, Auckland. The appealing space was a renovation for a family who wanted to replace their dark kitchen with an uplifting design that had plenty of storage and bench space. The cabinetry is white, with oak elements, while the benchtop utilises a Dekton product in the colour Aura. Stainless steel finishes were selected for the tapware and sink.

‘Fergus House Bathroom’ by Emma Morris is a stunning master ensuite that is spacious, functional, and luxurious. A bespoke oak timber vanity is flanked by a striking green textured tile, carefully contrasted with large soft grey porcelain tiles. With the ambiance of an exclusive hotel, the space is a sanctuary for the owners to enjoy.

NKBA’s Executive Officer, Suzie Restieaux, says both Emma and Danielle are deserving winners.

“Well done to Emma and Danielle for taking out the 2022 People’s Choice Awards. It is exciting to see the New Zealand public getting behind our fabulous industry. A big thank you must also go to our sponsor, Kitchen Things and CDK Stone who help make this award possible,” says Suzie.
