Client Story: Demi and Damian

Dodge Cabinets created this stunning and practical kitchen as part of a Kitchen Renovation for clients Demi and Damian

Dodge Cabinets’ client, Demi, is an at-home small business owner who spends the majority of her days preparing freshly cooked meals in her kitchen. Through her business, Eat Prep Love, Demi takes the hard-work out of cooking, selling main meals, breakfast packs, lunch packs, soups, smoothies and sweets, all ready to go with minimal cooking time involved for customers.

Although her old, outdated kitchen functioned well when her business was “on the side”, her growing family, and growing business, prompted Demi and her husband Damian to contact Dodge Cabinets.

Seeking recommendations from the local community, Demi reached out to Ron at Dodge Cabinets to discuss their kitchen renovation. Ron met with Demi and they spoke about how Dodge Cabinets could help design, manufacture and install a stunning, and practical, new kitchen and butler’s pantry that would help not only facilitate the Eat Prep Love business, but be large enough for the entire family to enjoy.

“Ron and Nathan are just down to earth people who made us laugh and we got along with them so well. This made the process easier for myself and husband as we were nervous wrecks” said Demi.

As first-time renovators, Demi and Damian were put at ease when Ron and Nathan provided great ideas and worked within their budget, space and schedule. As a registered kitchen, the space had certain council requirements that needed to be met to ensure sign-off during regular inspections. In addition to these requirements, Demi needed a large pantry with ample bench space and copious amounts of storage for the bulk ingredients she uses.

Ron and Nathan provided CAD drawings and recommendations on colours and finishes. Dodge Cabinets then worked with Demi and Damian to finesse the design before installation.

“Dodge Cabinets worked around my cooking schedule which we were really thankful for. They were just so easy to work with. Damian and I are absolutely thrilled with end result.”
