Sam started the company in 1980 and has been the sole director and owner ever since.
His emphasis has always been on innovation, customer service and excellent staff relations.
“I believe you cannot provide the excellence in product and service our clients expect unless you have total staff loyalty and respect.
Sam’s attitude towards customer service is based on a very simple philosophy “Treat your clients the way you like to be treated. We are all consumers and we all appreciate and understand good service.”
In the 40 years that Sam has been involved in this business and in the kitchen industry, he has seen a lot of companies come and go and he has also seen many companies change ownership. Degabriele Kitchens has been in the same hands during all this time.
It takes passion and dedication to steer a company over such a long period of time, Degabriele Kitchens’ secret has always been to innovate and to set ever higher standards.
Unlike a lot of other kitchen and joinery company owners and operators, Sam’s background was not trade related.
Sam was able to, therefore, bring a different perspective to the running of Degabriele Kitchens, placing the emphasis more on the quality of the service and the accommodation of the customers, rather than the traditional, trade based approach.
When not thinking about kitchens, Sam likes to relax by reading, gardening, enjoying classical music and travelling.
We looked at several companies before we entrusted deGabriele with our kitchen renovation in February 2020. At every stage the team was professional, courteous and tidy. We loved the design, which had some great extras such as hidden kick drawers which now house pot lids and other less used flat items, removable and easy-clean cutlery compartments and a killer make-over of our pantry. The work teams were on time and very tidy, leaving everything as clean as possible. The quality of the materials is fantastic. Everything feels solid and any problems we had were dealt with quickly and to our satisfaction.

I searched Sydney looking for a kitchen that was going to be everything I dreamed of. That’s when I found Degabriele kitchens. From my first consultation at the show room in Willoughby, to the final product in my home has been more than rewarding. The service, the workmanship, the joiners and the staff, I have nothing but praise for the whole team. I have the most magnificent kitchen that my family and I are in love with. Definitely has the wow factor. I highly recommend Degabriele kitchens to anyone who wants a high end quality kitchen and a wonderful experience.

I couldn’t be more happy with Degabriele Kitchens company! Everything from the beginning till the end were handled very professionally! Designer created the most beautiful kitchen for us, also library/study and foyer. We were making lots of changes during our project and I must say that both designer and builder were supporting us through that process! They did everything possible to deliver the exact results we were looking for. Quality of work is impeccable! I would highly recommend Degabriele company if you’re looking for a luxury kitchen and a top customer service.

We had been considering the kitchen as an integral part of the major renovation of our home. We understood the importance of the kitchen and wanted to get the best we could get to do justice to the rest of the work. Of course, Degabriele Kitchens, was a kitchen supplier who we also understood could help us achieve this. We found it easy to discuss the concept and layout of the kitchen with the team at Degabriele. After a conversation with Sam and John.

I have been thoroughly impressed by the team at Degabriele Kitchens.
From start to finish they have been nothing but professional & helpful. Manufacturing and installing a high quality beautifully finished, hand painted kitchen, laundry & joinery for me.
The team has been wonderful, Nick, Lorraine, Ron, Hannah, Dylan, their installer and painter all have been exceptional along the way.
I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a gorgeous kitchen, laundry or joinery, they are full of great ideas and their showroom at Willoughby is impressive.
Thanks Degabriele, well done!
