Brett & Ruby

Brett & Ruby’s Story

The house in Adelaide’s Melrose Park is home to Brett, Ruby and their Golden Retriever, Sammy. When the couple first bought their home, they could see its potential. With Fisher Kitchens, they turned the outdated house into the modern home of their dreams.

A home for entertaining

They decided to open up the poky little rooms, creating a kitchen that would flow into the outdoor area. As they loved entertaining at home and cooking, getting the kitchen design right was the top of their agenda. That’s when they realised the advantages of a mood board.

It pays to be organised

Ruby was organised with her colour palette and textures. She decided on the benchtop stone and selected Venetian Plaster for her splashback in the kitchen. They even decided on the door and drawer openings, opting for the minimalist finger pull to open rather than handles.

Their organisation paid off. Using Ruby’s detailed design brief, they were quicker and closer to their vision than anticipated. The 3D plan was exactly what they were hoping for.

The solution

Fisher Kitchens took Ruby’s kitchen design and combined it with their lifestyle.

Built in stages

“Our dream kitchen is complete! We couldn’t recommend more Braydn at Fisher Kitchens.
His team has done such an incredible job.”

It’s all about
the detail



Entertaining requires storage space. So, Fisher Kitchens suggested increasing the number of drawers. Drawers in the pantry can be hidden behind seamless doors. So lost condiments will never be a problem again.

Building in


Rather than increase their bank loan and repayments, Fisher Kitchens worked with Brett & Ruby’s budget and lifestyle. The solution was building in stages.
Stage one: kitchen, pantry and laundry

Stage two: tv unit, walk in robe and hallway/study cabinetry

Stage three: ensuite and two bedroom wardrobes

Stage four: bathroom vanity



Fisher kitchens suggested finger pull openings and shark nose base cabinets. Sleek straight lines are minimalistic and modern, yet timeless.

To make the Venetian Plaster splashback pop, the colours of the surrounding cabinetry were muted. Fisher Kitchens suggested two pac painted drawers and doors. This provided a premium look and quality while remaining understated. Plants and appliances could add that extra touch of colour and can easily be updated throughout the seasons.
