Contact Wayde to get your project going now



I am an award winning certified kitchen designer (NZCKD) and can be considered your professional partner. 

To me, design is more than assembling boxes in a room and it goes well beyond the pages of magazines. Every client has specific needs and designing a new kitchen for them presents a unique opportunity to create a space that looks amazing and functions superbly for the people who use it.


I bring expertise and knowledge of design, manufacture and installation. I like to create kitchens and bathrooms that are very functional and styled to suit you and your home. My work is underpinned by quality and innovation and I bring this to my clients throughout all aspects of projects.

Design And Project Management

From concept to completion, this service helps you create the kitchen of your dreams. I will guide you through a comprehensive design process, exploring layout options and offering you choice from a wide range of high-quality fittings and materials. My advice will help you make all the important decisions about the joinery, benches, splashbacks, storage fittings, mixers and sinks, appliances, lighting, flooring, and décor. Resulting in a design which promises a beautiful and highly functional kitchen to suit your specific needs and budget.


With the design set, I can then manage the renovation of your kitchen to completion. This includes arranging and supervising all trades and local authority building consent and compliance processes.


Every renovation is different, so before we get started on the project, I would form an agreement with you based on the estimated hours required to fulfil the project brief and keep you fully informed as things progress.

Design by the Hour

Exploring concepts through to comprehensive design, this is a “By the hour” design consultation service. Some of my clients use this as an opportunity to test ideas, colour selection, lighting design and for the development of design concepts. Whatever your particular need is, this is an economical way to gain some valuable design advice.


Wayde did a fantastic job helping us design, plan and build a new kitchen. In particular dealing with the Covid-19 lockdown and its aftermath. In more detail, Wayde: - Spent time discussing the design to understand what was important to us and how to make sure the kitchen met our needs. - helped us find a innovative designs that made much better use of the available space, including novel (for us) solutions like draws within draws, and a retractable electronic stack. - helped us navigate through the huge variety of designs and colours to find what worked for us. - develop a number of bespoke features, including metal panel with our own design. - helped us when, just after the kitchen was taken out, the level 4 lockdown started (March/April 2020). In the later stages of the lockdown, Wayge negotiated with contractors so that even during level 3 the work restarted, and we had a kitchen within a couple of weeks.Read More

Wayde was great to work with - he helped us step through every stage of our kitchen redesign, starting out with what we wanted from a vision perspective, right through to the smallest details of selecting lights, tiles, etc. Wayde was happy to go into the shops with us, provide some great starting options, and give us feedback if he felt our selections weren't going to be best in our kitchen. Thanks heaps Wayde!Read More

Wayde's design expertise and insights were invaluable in helping my team deliver a high quality kitchen and laundry space renovation earlier this year. His attention to detail was second to none and his devotion to ensuring the homeowners were comfortable with all aspects of the design and build process is unrivalled. I would not hesitate in recommending his services to anyone.Read More

Wayde’s eye for detail and his vision for linking the features of the house with new kitchen was absolutely outstanding. We were so happy with the final result and everyone who has seen the kitchen has been nothing but blown away with the design. Wayde recycled the original stainless steel bench tops which not only saved a significant sum, but also connected the old and the new. Highly recommend.Read More

We were undertaking a massive whole house renovation and reworking our kitchen was a major part of the renovation - we wanted a hub for our home and we wanted it to suit the practical needs of our family. We had loads of ideas about how we wanted the kitchen to look but we really needed a designer to add the practical design elements, provide us with product knowledge and to develop our ideas so it would work both aesthetically and tie in with the rest of our home. We were so relieved to have engaged Wayde from Wayde Beckman Design to design our kitchen. Wayde really listened to what we wanted, he didn't try to talk us out of what was important to us or send us down a different track. Being a creative, Wayde was able to fine-tune our ideas and add design flair and as a result, our completed kitchen is not only beautiful and stylish but it works, it flows and offers a hub for our home. We would definitely recommend Wayde Beckman Design.Read More

Wayde transformed our small kitchen into a quality, modern and ergonomically designed kitchen. Wayde’s tradesmen are excellent producing high quality work in a professional and timely manner. The design and project management phases where excellent through careful listening and good communication. It was a pleasure to deal with Wayde, highly recommended.Read More

Love the result- it’s much better than I imagined it could be at the start. Wayde is a talented designer who really looked after us though the process. He listened carefully to what we wanted and made suggestions that really helped, His communication with us was excellent, responding very quickly. More than happy to recommend him.Read More

Wayde made everything easy for us. He listened carefully to what we did and didn't want, and didn't try to force ideas on us. He made excellent suggestions within the brief that we gave. Wayde is fantastic at getting the most out of a small space and making the kitchen flow in a very practical way. We love the way his design looks and works. It has transformed our whole open plan living space. I don't know what we would have done without him project managing the actual fitout for us and it was great to know that he had it all in hand. There were a few little hiccups as with all projects, but Wayde responded promptly and his communication was excellent. This was the second time that we have used Wayde, and while we have no plans to move again soon, we wouldn't hesitate to use him again if we had another kitchen project.Read More

I have friends who have used Wayde Beckman design over the years and was excited to engage Wayde when renovating our kitchen. We used Wayde's services for design and concept and were really happy with the options he presented us. We have, and will continue to, recommend Wayde to others as someone who listens to the brief and provides innovative but practical solutions. He is a pleasure to work with.Read More
