2014 Australian Kitchen Design of the Year
Winner: Craig Sheiles Homes and International Cabinets (cshomes.com.au or internationalcabinets.com.au)
Judges’ comments: It is the clever and practical design ideas that take this kitchen to another level. The space is divided into a crisp, clean entertaining and social area; and a functional prep zone with a stainless steel bench. The timber veneer adds warmth to the contrast of the sharp, straight lines of the linear layout.

2014 Australian Bathroom Design of the Year
Winner: Minosa (minosadesign.com)
Judges’ comments: This distinctive, open-plan bathroom has it all with a sandstone cliff face as a remarkable feature. The glass sliding doors on one wall of the shower open it up to the elements and allows natural airflow. The luxurious, day-spa-style design also includes a double vanity, large freestanding bath and a generous walk-in robe.
