How a Tragedy Led Me to My Passion…

Hi, I’m the owner and designer at Gauteng Kitchens.

 

I’ve decided to share a short part of my story with you because I feel it’s important to connect with my clients and build long-term relationships.
It helps if you know how I got to this point.

 

I was 19 years old and had a terrible car accident. I completely lost my memory.
Before the accident I was working for a Kitchen designer. I was doing all the dirty work but also learned enough about the basics.  After the accident (and some recovery) I had to do something with myself.

 

So I started doing the only thing I knew how to do…cupboards! I built a cupboard here and a cupboard there. Before I knew it, I was doing big jobs for well known people.

 

Everything was going okay until I managed to lose it all! I realised I was great at my craft but not so great at running a business. So I decided to go work for a boss to learn the business side of things. This helped me to understand how and where I went wrong.
It also allowed me to focus on building my company again. This time from a much more mature, business savvy perspective.

 

Thankfully, in 2013 I restarted my business. With a lot of hard work, outstanding customer service and patience (for those usual ups and downs) I eventually passed a Million rand in turnover.

 

I don’t say this to brag about money but to emphasise how much I love what I do and that I will do everything I can to continue offering the best possible service and end product to you, my client.

 

Money is a reflection of the value I continue to provide.

 

Also, I’ve lost a LOT and realised that i need to revisit the drawing board and perfect the problem so it doesn’t come up when I do the next job.

 

Kitchens are my passion. I love to create things and due to each kitchen being a unique style and design its like a new life taking shape.

 

I love seeing peoples reactions on their faces when they see their dream kitchen that I’ve designed on my computer become a reality… and they never thought it would be possible!

 

Lastly, I’ve developed an eye to see lines and visualise things and then create them. I can imagine a unique “almost impossible cupboard” and then I can build it without even drawing or designing it first.
