Andrea Smith

Office Manager / Accounts / Your go to lady

Andrea is a qualified and experienced primary school teacher by day and works alongside Bruce to ensure a smooth sailing, behind the scenes, running of Capital Kitchens and Interiors Ltd.  She is often at the end of an email, arranging the initial consultations and managing the accounts.

There are also three mini cabinet makers in training, in our children and they love to work alongside daddy, especially sweeping the workshop or hammering some plywood. Don’t worry they won’t be working on your kitchen just yet.


Senior Designer

Lara has been with us since November 2019. She is a creative designer, with an eye for detail and flair. She has experience in both high end residential and in the commercial sector putting kitchens into spec homes all over the North Island.

Lara will visit your home to discuss your needs, wants and dreams for your new kitchen or interior joinery and then create a design that is functional and individual to your needs. When she's not helping people create their dream kitchen she is kept busy with her two children and various hobbies including social dancing and photography!
