By combining clever preparation, storage, and serving spaces, our kitchens look clean, refined, and stylish, so you can be sure that our kitchens will always live up to their looks.


The stylish bathrooms and en suites within our Universal Homes at Karaka Lakes are full of slimline-design elements and luxurious features, that make them some of the most loved rooms in the home. Exciting combinations of sparking chrome, wall-mounted cabinetry, and easy-clean, hygienic ceramic tile floors make Universal bathrooms a pleasure to use, and trouble-free to keep clean and spotless.
