NZ’s Kitchen and Bathroom Designers re-vamp their association with a New Look & New Attitude

A new look website from Certified Designers Society NZ (CDS) now delivers a sleek showcase for the innovative kitchen and bathroom designs of its members.

Live from August 1st, the CDS website aims to be the “go to” hub for all New Zealand kitchen and bathroom design, featuring the latest trends and ideas, including blogs and experiences of CDS members on individual projects.

With the needs of homeowners and designers in mind, the site offers pathways for both when seeking information. Homeowners can browse through CDS members’ kitchen and bathroom projects for inspiration and easily locate a designer in their region, including contact details and a link to their website.

Designers can complete forms online, and source information on upcoming events. Designers wishing to become members of CDS can also find all the information they need and apply through the website for membership.

Chelsey Mathieson, CDS website and marketing portfolio manager said the new website represents a completely new brand for CDS.

“This includes a sharp, clean logo our members can be proud to use in their marketing, and an interactive website dominated with images. One showcasing kitchens and bathrooms from our members, creating a “go to” website for anyone wanting inspiration, New Zealand designs and designers.”

“We have totally achieved all the initial goals set at the start of the rebrand and we are so excited to show it off to everyone.”
