About Us

Bourne – the Evolution to J+K

After many years as a family business, it was time to strike out as individuals and in 2018, the Bourne brand has been reenergised.

James Bourne, having been Director of Bourne Bathroom & Kitchen Centre for over 11 years is taking his experience and continuing his passion for exceptional customer experience and quality products.

J+K pride themselves in ensuring your needs are met, from helping you decide what style will suit your home best, through to choosing the right products that will fit your lifestyle. Whatever your need is, Bourne will solve it. 


The Bourne family has been in business for over 26 years, beginning as Budget Plumbing in 1992. The motivation for the business was to provide bathroom, kitchen and laundry products directly to consumers at trade prices.

As the business evolved, the focus moved to providing the largest range of bathroom, kitchen, heating, laundry and water solution products in Melbourne. To reflect their devotion to customer needs and family values and to signify growth, Budget Plumbing became Bourne Bathroom & Kitchen Centre in 2005.

Over the years, the business grew significantly to include more than 50 employees spanning across 5 store locations across Melbourne, and a head office and central warehouse.

Dedicating themselves to aligning with large, local suppliers that offer quality products, the Bourne family rely on building strong relationships to underpin their vision of growth for the business putting the customer experience at the heart of what they do.
