It all began in 1976, when Emanuel Degabriele decided he was going to be a cabinetmaker. He started his apprenticeship at the age of 15 and as time passed he started to make his own joinery for customers after hours in his father's garage, naming his business 'Degabriele Kitchens'.
Throughout the years, Emanuel's clientele had grown immensely, so after completing his apprenticeship, he decided to expand his business by renting out his first factory and employing staff.
In 1986, Emanuel met his wife Linda whilst he was building her parent's new kitchen and were married in 1987. Their first daughter Sheree was born in 1988 and from the moment she could walk, she would spend nearly every Saturday accompanying Emanuel on site check measures, deliveries and installations. The family continued to grow with four more daughters and one son. Throughout the years Emanuel has trained many of todays high skilled trades people, won numerous kitchen awards along with working with many clients, prestige builders, architects and interior designers.
In December of 1999, Emanuel sold 'Degabriele Kitchens' and in January 2000 started 'Kitchens by Emanuel', with the intent of creating a boutique kitchen company with his detailed experience and his resources to source the highest quality materials and products with the core of the business being based on a personalised and tailored service to his clients.
As Sheree grew older, her involvement in Kitchens by Emanuel grew as well, working with Emanuel during her school holidays to learn the ropes of the business. Meanwhile, Emanuel continued to build the company by striving for excellence in every project and working tirelessly, developing custom made kitchens and joinery.
As time passed, Sheree finished school and followed in her father's footsteps by starting her apprenticeship at TAFE studying 'Shop fitting and detailed joinery' which required her to work in the factory fulltime. Simultaneously to this, Sheree also studied 'Diploma of Interior Design and Decoration' at TAFE. After graduating from her two TAFE courses and working for many years in the factory, and gaining valuable practical experience in completing onsite check measures and developing plans, Sheree wanted to expand her knowledge about Kitchens by Emanuel.
