Meet The Team

Introducing Capital Kitchens & Interiors Ltd – we are a husband and wife team, who after relocating back to NZ from living and working in London in 2013, have been working on developing our small, family-run business to deliver personalised and unique designs for top quality, custom-built kitchens and interiors throughout the Wellington region.

“Bruce is a true craftsman; he pays close attention to detail and prides himself on delivering a quality customized kitchen within budget.”



We bring 17 years’ experience in the kitchen manufacturing and joinery industry.

We are committed to developing the ‘Capital Kitchens’ brand which was created in 2000 by Keith and Janet Hollow, and we are dedicated to making the brand one of the best kitchen design and manufacturing workshops in Wellington.

Our Process

Capital Kitchens & Interiors Ltd Provide:


No obligation, no hassle. We like to get on-site so that we’re better able to provide you with an accurate quote and come up with some clever solutions to meet your requirements.


Because we understand what it’s like to have to deal with loads of different tradespeople, we take the hassle out of your kitchen transformation.


We manufacture our kitchens in our workshop, deliver them straight to your site and install them – you deal with the same people right the way through.

Meet the Team

Since August 2013, Bruce and Andrea have been the proud owners of Capital Kitchens & Interiors Ltd and together have established a successful, small family-run business.
They support other local businesses in Wellington through ordering top quality board material, bench tops and hardware to craft your unique, locally-made, high quality kitchen. They work closely with local trades’ people so their clients can rely on products, services and a top quality service.
Bruce is also a member of BNI as this provides a positive, supportive, and structured environment for the development and exchange of quality business practices and referrals. It does so by helping build personal relationships with dozens of other local qualified business professionals.
