Designed his first kitchen over 25 year's ago and since then he has had a healthy obsession with design. After working with other local kitchen manufacturers, Sean saw an opportunity to build a business that offered an end to end client centric experience. Kitchens for Living was initially a design and project management business but In 2014 Sean established the Kitchens for Living manufacturing facility. This bold step has enabled him to offer advanced design, custom detailing and increased control over the products his team installs.
Sean has served the Housing Industry Association for the Hunter region for over 10 years as a member of the regional executive committee. He served as president for a term and is also on the national kitchen and bathroom committee. He has a wealth of industry experience. Kitchens for Living has been acknowledged for their work, being awarded over several years for their design and beautiful custom joinery.
