SieMatic: dream kitchens come to Canberra

Amanda Whitley

We all want to buy local, but Canberrans have become pretty resigned to the fact that when it comes to certain items you sometimes need to look further afield, necessitating a trip to Sydney or Melbourne. But the times, they are a’changin’, and the latest addition to the ‘Woohoo! They’ve come to Canberra’ list is SieMatic kitchens, now stocked at Southern Innovations in Fyshwick.

Haven’t heard of them? Neither had I, but one look at the website and I was smitten. While they may be new to Canberra, the brand SieMatic originated in Germany in 1929—it’s now recognised as one of the leading international brand names in kitchen design, renowned for luxury, European kitchen design and styling, engineered with German precision and detailing.

Showroom Manager, Mark Shepherd says the kitchens reflect Canberra’s “unique combination of urban cool, modern sophistication, and timeless elegance.”

The introduction of SieMatic to Canberra is really quite a coup. Southern Innovations is one of only two SieMatic distributors in Australia.

“Bringing something like this to Canberra means you don’t have to travel to Sydney or Melbourne to get your customised, luxury kitchen anymore,” says Mark. “It also gives us the chance to offer a range that sits well with our other exclusive products such as ASKO Pro Series, Rogerseller andLiebherr fridges.”

SieMatic offers three ranges—Pure, Urban and Classic—all on display in Southern Innovations’ Fyshwick showroom, each suiting different lifestyles and tastes, from traditional through to modern and contemporary.

Essentially, you choose an aesthetic that you love, and then Southern Innovations’ kitchen designers works with you to create a solution for your home.

We encourage customers to visit our showroom and browse through the kitchens, open the drawers and cabinets and check out the different styles. They can then meet with a kitchen designer to discuss their needs and the kitchen features that they want to include,” says Mark.

“The design process is very fluid with a very wide range of options, and this means that the customer will get a very unique kitchen that complements their house and their lifestyle.”

Although the kitchens are absolutely stunning on the ‘outside’, it’s the hidden features that really excite me.

“Drawers can be customised using internal dividers and compartments, which can easily be moved and adjusted to whatever size you need,” says Mark.

“You can choose from a range of inserts including Nespresso holders, cutlery inserts, cling film dispensers and charging docks for your smart phones.”

The SieMatic range is truly gorgeous and unlike anything else in Canberra…and if my kitchen wasn’t only five years old, I’d be signing myself up for an ‘Urban’ number quicker than you could say “temperature controlled wine storage cabinet.”

Weekend expedition, perhaps?
