Gardner Interior Concepts – Kitchen Design Styles and Trends 2016

Gardner Interior Concepts was one of Cape Town’s top four kitchen designers participating in the Franke ‘Heart of the Home’ Kitchen Design Project, at DecorexSA (Cape Town 2016).


Gardner Interior Concepts showcased their vision for kitchen designs and materials to encapsulate and demonstrate the phrase ‘heart of the home’. According to Patrick Gardner, modern family lifestyles are evolving, and this evolution is changing both the role and the design of the modern kitchen.


Says, Patrick: “The only real opportunity today’s families get to spend quality time together is while preparing dinner. For this reason, great emphasis is placed on including the kitchen in the rest of the house’s layout. And, with property prices rising and properties becoming smaller, more and more we’re seeing walls coming down and homes being opened up.”


The Gardner Interior Concepts kitchen display at Decorex blends classic and contemporary ideas, with a twist. Patrick explained the rationale: “We want to encourage customers to embrace both past and present trends, which we believe will yield something more balanced in the future.”

Custom Kitchen Design Ideas – Optimizing and Saving Space

Patrick further contends that the optimization of space is key to modern kitchen design and adds: “Ingenious pantry pullouts, new versions of the lazy Susan, drawer inserts, wall-hung utensils, flap-down options all ensure no space goes to waste in the efficient kitchens of today.”

We dubbed this exciting project Our Green Facebook Project

While searching the internet for Interior Designers in Cape Town, Robert found Gardner Interior Concepts on Facebook.

After contacting our friendly design team, he awarded us the contract to complete the renovations to his new state of the art “Fit 15” EMS Training Center.

Robert – being conscious of the environment – specifically wanted to use reclaimed timber as wall cladding. We managed to find Joseph on Facebook to do this, and he did a fantastic job for us.

The greatest feeling in the world is knowing that someone has your back. In a high-pressure, deadline-driven workplace, such as the Gardner Interior Concepts‘ manufacturing workshop – which delivers all their custom built components – success if the result of team spirit and camaraderie.

Besides having a significantly positive effect on office morale, the team spirit at Gardner Interior Concepts creates a vibrant and energetic organization.


There is no manager who is able to lead an organization, micro-manage individuals and steer the ship simultaneously. And no human being can be in two places at the same time. Having staff who are trustworthy, dependable, reliable and instinctively do the right thing, is priceless!

The Gardner Interior Concepts team embodies the phrase “Happy staff equals productive staff”. Each team member views Service Excellence as the portal to customer satisfaction. Delivering great service also enhances the reputation and credibility of an organization. At Gardner Interior Concepts, high standards are normal and excellent service is real.
