My passion for kitchens and joinery design is far more than a job- its my life. My weekends are spent often building properties with my family- Partner Jason & son Makinnley. We live and breath building and construction. My partner is a builder and together we are on our fifth build for ourselves. I live on small farm which is paired perfectly with my love for traditional design- which was recognized with best runner up "Classic Traditional" kitchen design award from the NKBA in 2012.

 As well as being very productive for Kristen Reid Design, I am also head designer for Mastercraft Kitchens- A kitchen manufacturing company with many locations throughout New Zealand. My role with Mastercraft Kitchens includes designing set standard kitchen plans for nationwide housing companies and the occasional TV and radio appearance to talk about what I know best- Kitchen trends!

 I am a very dedicated designer and love new challenges, whether it is a small space to small time frame, I will commit one hundred percent.


 My office is based on Conway Lane Rangiora where I am enjoying new post earthquake architecture and an abundance of great new cafes!
