You spend up to five hours in your kitchen every day, so it should have space, be functional and look all kinds of beautiful.

If you work eight hours a day and sleep eight hours each night, there’s another eight hours left to cook or catch up with friends and family. A lot of that time is spent in and around the kitchen — the heart of your home. For over 40 years, Farquhar has become the heartbeat in thousands of South Australian homes, because each kitchen is tailored to the people in it.

When building or renovating, one of the first things considered is the kitchen. You start to picture yourself standing in it, preparing platters for the masses; talking to the kids as they eat their dinner; and even how you’ll keep those beautiful new benchtops clean from textas and free from appliance clutter. If you have an open-plan design, you’ll also need to consider how to move freely from the kitchen to the living and dining rooms with a cheeseboard and a glass of bubbles. Well, you can get those answers and even act it all out in a Farquhar showroom!

You can never find a free power outlet when you need one! The benchtop pop-up power point gives you instant access to power for kitchen appliances, and then USB charging sockets for your phone and tablet. A gentle press of the bench and it’ll appear whenever you need it — voilà!

When you have loads of storage space, it reduces clutter and makes you feel sane. Their Blum® inner drawers give you easy access to those normally hard-to-reach items, from all three sides. And the Orga-Line inner dividing system can tailor drawers around everyday or occasional use.


Farquhar can also supply and integrate your necessities, like fridges and dishwashers, cleverly disguised inside cupboards and drawers. Temperature-controlled Fisher & Paykel CoolDrawer™ fridges are a convenient way to chill those additional drinks and desserts that don’t fit inside your everyday fridge or freezer. There are five different modes to choose from: fridge, freezer, pantry, chill and wine.

Everything and the kitchen sink

Nobody likes seeing dishes drip-drying on the benchtop. The Oliveri® sink solutions available at Farquhar have optional additional drainage baskets, bamboo preparation boards, bowl protectors, benchtop utility trays and even colanders that fit seamlessly into each sink design. You’ll never be stuck holding boiling pasta in one hand and a colander in the other!

But this is just the tip of the iceberg. If you’re building or renovating and would like to know about all the clever kitchen features available to you — like black granite scratch-resistant sinks, instant hot water or sparkling mineral water directly from your taps — drop by the Farquhar showrooms in Norwood or Plympton, or book a design appointment online.
