A true master of wood with a lifetime of creative skill, Murray Hewitt is installing warmth and flair into South Island homes.
From a Kaikoura kitchen to a West Coast bach, the team at Murray Hewitt Joinery is as adaptable as it is specialised.
Wood combines heart and history. An heirloom oak table with its time-loved patina, was recently repurposed into a beautiful dresser.
“Some Canterbury homesteads have used the farm’s old oak tree or macrocarpa for their interior and exterior joinery, for example door frames, colonial-look double-hung windows, and solid-wood bifold doors,” Murray says.
Kitchens look amazing when functionally combining wood joinery with the likes of laminate and stainless-steel benches – the best of both worlds.
“Tying the kitchen to the living area in the same hard-wearing American oak gives continuity. We can stain it any colour to perfectly match or contrast throughout the home.” He says walnut with its beautiful grain is also popular.
From a wardrobe in gold high-gloss stained solid wood, to an inbuilt entertainment unit that blends with surrounds, it’s a close team’s creative efforts.
“Donna Weir, our inhouse designer, shares her wealth of ideas with clients, and Steve who works alongside me shares my passion for timber.”
