The Tauranga Home Show is thrilled to be working with Chris and the team from BespOak Kitchens, who have designed and built the fully functional
Live Cooking Theatre kitchen specifically designed for live cooking sessions while showcasing BespOak’s stylish kitchen design and functionality with matching Belling appliances.  BespOak Kitchens is a Bay of Plenty family-owned business based locally in Mount Maunganui, and are New Zealand’s largest stockist of genuine oak kitchens.

Most believe that the kitchen is the heart of the home, and that’s why people are prepared to invest in a kitchen that is both good looking and user friendly.  So imagine supplementing those good looks and functionality with the warmth, quality and durability of natural timber that has been sourced sustainably and responsibly, without spending a small fortune.

With elegant products meticulously handcrafted in the finest joinery traditions, each piece carries its own unique fingerprint represented in the grain of the distinctive, elegant white oak wood. BespOak’s oak and painted kitchen cabinet range are fully built as individual, pre-finished units with solid timber frames built by craftsmen. This means their kitchens are readily available straight from their warehouse at an affordable price.

As a family business, BespOak Kitchens value integrity and service and they will provide ongoing service for as long as you need it. Their lifetime guarantee underlines the strength and durability of a BespOak kitchen, crafted to last with a style that won’t date.
