Why Dan Kitchens?
A few points about why you should consider Dan Kitchens as your kitchen & joinery cabinetmaker.
Elegant design and exquisite attention to detail.
The projects showcased on this website are merely a sample of over 30 years of works undertaken by Dan Kitchens Australia. These projects, and hundreds of others, bear the unmistakable signature of personalised design and quality execution that has earned Dan Kitchens the trust and respect of very discerning clients.
With a skilled, experienced and confident design team able to interpret even the most challenging and complex of briefs, Dan Kitchens knows how to create sophisticated architectural spaces that are exciting and supremely practical; aesthetically pleasing, yet designed to endure the passing of time.
Partnership in planning and execution.
Located in the heart of the home, no two the same, projects partnered with Dan Kitchens are a strong and joyful expression of their proud owner’s sense of style and taste.
Critically important to the success of each project is a close collaboration between client and the Dan Kitchens team. Once clearly briefed, graph paper drawings and photo quality illustrations are created showing how the proposed joinery integrates with the surrounding space. Architecturally accurate, the plans and images are further refined in consultation with Dan Kitchens’ interior designer. Decisions are made regarding colours, materials and textures and often side trips are made to inspect slabs of stone or raw timbers.
Free of commercial ties to suppliers of appliances or hardware, benchtops or other components, Dan Kitchens expert, unbiased advice facilitates the selection and specification process
– a daunting task at the best of times.
Close coordination with builders and tight control over scheduling, in consultation with the homeowner at every stage of the project, has become a Dan Kitchens hallmark.
Danish design, Australian made.
The ‘Dan’ in ‘Dan Kitchens’ is often assumed to be a person’s name. It actually refers to the company’s Danish heritage and its early years when importing ready to assemble, flat pack cabinetry from Denmark.
Although more cost effective, the limited range of colours, the modular sized imported cabinets on offer and the tyrannies of distance made the decision to manufacture locally a logical one. Danish design culture firmly in mind and unconstrained by mass production limitations, Australia now enjoys world’s best bespoke joinery, manufactured in Sydney to suit local conditions.
Culturally diverse but united in a relaxed and spacious lifestyle, Australians have embraced the best ideas and technological developments and used them in new and uniquely local ways.
Quality materials and quality people.
Going against the mass production trend, every project is locally produced and manufactured in response to the desires and instructions of individual clients.
Sourcing the best joinery hardware from German and Austrian specialist manufacturers since 1984 and using the same Sydney based stone mason and electrical contractor for over 25 years is quietly reassuring. Industry knowledge and contacts garnered over years of working closely with leading architects, builders and specifiers has greatly expanded Dan Kitchens’ ability to satisfy very complex briefs.
Clients benefit from Dan Kitchens’ extensive list of suppliers and associated specialists including; expert sound and lighting engineers; furniture and fabrics suppliers; recycled timber and hand paint specialists; stainless steel fabricators and other hard to find, quality specialists.
Built in 1987, company owned premises house the design studio, an extensive two floor showroom and adjoining production facility featuring highly precise CNC machinery and manufacturing equipment and a state of the art gas heated spray booth system.
Based in Sydney, it is home to a highly skilled team of cabinet makers and installers, many of whom have been with the company for more than 15 years. Quiet and unassuming achievers, fiercely proud of their craft, it is their hands that create and bring the projects together.
Peace of mind.
Warranties can mean everything or nothing at all. We increasingly live in a disposable society.
A mass produced module, sold by an agent and installed by a subcontractor will probably be substituted or serviced by a third party with no concern for the environment, the product or its owner.
Dan Kitchens offers a 15 year full service warranty. Should a visit be required, it would be carried out in house by the Dan Kitchens professional team.
