The greatest feeling of success for Wilf is the reward of a satisfied customer. Working with the client and watching the transformation from a tired old out dated Kitchen floor plan, redesigned, renovated and transformed into the ultimate working & entertainment area of the house; or watching the same experience come to life from a working blueprint or customer’s concept.
The excitement of new technology with the availability of ever changing materials & products has given Wilf even more passion of detail and cabinet design.
This brings to life the 30 plus years of experience knowledge and insight of Wilf’s free hand award winning Kitchen floor plans cabinet renderings, elevations and designs.
