Get to know the team behind the design

Andreas Kitchen Designer


Andreas lives and breathes kitchens.  He understands the ins and outs, in fact too many years we have lost count.  Andreas’s passion lies in listening to customers needs so he can exceed their expectations and loves the challenge of an excellent design. Questions like “why are you renovating your kitchen” and “what do you like and dislike in your existing kitchen” provide invaluable kitchen design solutions to meet desired budgets.

Andreas challenges himself daily to produce kitchen designs that are more efficient, especially clever designs in all sorts of spaces.  With kitchens being a high involvement, long term benefit for the whole family he enjoys transforming an old tired space into a kitchen flow that works.

Pop into to meet Andreas and the Zesta Kitchens Cheltenham team we know you will love your new designed kitchen!

When not at work, Andreas enjoys spending time with his family, especially his young daughter.

Mary Kitchen Designer

Mary Maksemos
ZESTA Richmond

Mary has a passion for designing which goes back a very long way as she states “Design is in my blood. It’s programmed in my DNA, so with that passion, lets think, design and create. Together.”  Her extensive design advice is drawn from over 20 years of experience in kitchens and she promises to create a unique kitchen space for your renovation.

Mary believes not only should a good kitchen design be functional to suit the needs of the client and their lifestyle but above all else, the new kitchen should look unique and stunning.

Mary is designing kitchens in Richmond and surrounding homes.  Whether it is a tight inner city space or a larger suburban kitchen the design is sure to impress.  Consistent feedback from Mary’s customers highlight such as this one “where would I be without Mary and her skills!  She is innovative, creative and knows exactly what she is doing. Mary designed a kitchen for me in a difficult space in an older apartment I was renovating and although I thought I knew exactly what I wanted, when I called Mary in, she knew what would work and what wouldn’t. Glad I took her advice as the kitchen turned out SO well.”

Our recently renovated showroom in Richmond with all the latest trends is well worth a visit to meet Mary and the Zesta Richmond Kitchens Team.
