At Glenlyon we know that the kitchen is the working heart of every home – it should be both beautiful and functional. A great kitchen starts with a great design.

We consider designing and building your kitchen a collaboration with you to ensure we achieve spectacular outcome for your kitchen. We focus on the design ideals of Function and Form, “Whenever we are working on a design we are not thinking about how beautiful it needs to be – we are solely focused on solving problems. But when we finish it, if the solution is not beautiful then it’s wrong.”

“Every great design begins with an even better story”

Books do Furnish a room……. We believe this statement to be absolutely true but it doesn’t just apply to books. Beautiful shelving units should showcase all your favourite things. We love our clients to give us special items to house or maybe to just help blend their TV into a room.

In our fast-paced world bookshelves maybe integrated with a reading nook can provide a special place to slow down.

There is no such thing as a boring project, there are only boring executions.”
