Dear Preben,Suzanne and Brenden Simpkins - Point Clare, 09/12/2013
We really want to express how absolutely delighted we are with our new kitchen and how grateful we are for the high standard of workmanship you showed. Without fail you were always friendly, efficient, thorough and most importantly patient with us as we navigated our way through the kitchen renovation process. We really valued how knowledgeable and professional you were.
People are often commenting on how much bigger our kitchen looks and feels and this is definitely true but for us the biggest change is how functional the kitchen is. It truly is a pleasure to be in this space.
Thank you for your wonderful service and for our beautiful kitchen!
We were very happy in what Preben promised regarding time and quality and what he delivered. We got his contact from the word of mouth from a friend who compared prices before (we didn't) but Preben’s offer was absolutely competitive. The competitive price even included delivery and fitting in. That helped us to rent out our property in time (not being delayed by another week). Preben has provided a drawing with his thoughts about the design and it was not necessary to change anything.
Definitely recommend and pass on telephone number and email. There will even be another job we're looking forward to work with Preben again soon.Philipp Nigsch and Gary Scott - North Gosford, 29/07/2013
Choosing a new kitchen design was made so much easier with Preben Lemming. He was very helpful with the design ideas of our kitchen and came up with an awesome idea of a raised wooden bench top as an extension of our stone top. It looks fabulous and has given us a lot more room at the kitchen bench. With Preben's great creative ideas, we have been given a lot more storage space and it is much easier to work in our new kitchen. Preben was always on time and worked in a very neat and timely manner. The kitchen was taken out in a matter of hours and watching the new kitchen take place with ease was very pleasing.Krysten and Gerard Grant - Kariong, 02/10/2013
I would not hesitate to recommend any future person wanting a new kitchen to talk to Preben - he is very creative and certainly knows what works in designing a kitchen.
Our kitchen has been a wonderful centrepiece to our house for some time now. The design, which Preben assisted with, is still fresh, and gaining compliments, both for the classic lines, and the unique elements that give it our character. The quality and finish are superb, even after time, and many many meals have passed. A kitchen means so much to a house, we are so glad that we have something more than 'the ordinary' for our family to live, eat, and entertain in.
Preben has an obvious skill and professionalism which is evident on meeting him, and which impression only grows on working with him. His company performs excellent work with courtesy, efficiency, and attention to detail. He has been, and remains a pleasure to work with.
We have had the opportunity to work with him more than once, and hope to do so again. Very good work, advice when you need it, and strong personal integrity. I would not hesitate to, and do frequently, recommend him.James Armstrong - Frenchs Forest, 28/01/2014
Trish and I wanted some finishing touches done to our kitchen. We rang countless kitchen companies on the coast only to be told we’re too busy or we will be there in a month or we will call you back in a couple of days. We then found an ad in the local paper advertising kitchen works, I called the number and Preben Lemming answered. After a brief discussion it was the same afternoon that Preben turned up on our doorstep. We discussed what we wanted, he took some measurements and returned the quote the same day which was accepted.
It was while the works were going on that we discussed bench tops and after a very competitive quote compared to the only other quote we had received Preben was awarded this work as well. He turned up when he said he would and the work was completed the day he arranged. We have nothing but praise for Preben and his company and have already recommended him to one of our friends who are wanting some work done as well. Although we only had some reno’s done and new bench tops our kitchen is now complete and looks like new, thankyou Preben. I would have no hesitation to recommend you to anyone. Regards,Phil & Tricia Page - Umina Beach, 25/02/2014
We would like to say a big thankyou to Preben for making the installation of our kitchen such a straight forward and enjoyable experience.
His professionalism & expertise in doing the installation produced a great high quality result beyond our expectations. I will definitely be recommending his services. Thanks,Lee-Anne McCormack - Bilgola Plateau, 19/03/2014
Preben Lemming spent time to understand our specific requirements and provided ideas, options and limitations on what could / could not be done. Preben spent time ensuring that our expectations were managed and spent time investigating and coming up with solutions. Most appreciated.
We felt we got the best quality outcome for our investment, and this meant we were happy. We might have been able to get some aspects cheaper, but we are sure it would not have been the same quality. We also wish we had contacted Preben before we undertook other wardrobe installations, as we would have not needed help to rectify issues from other installers.
Preben was very efficient. If you want a quality outcome where you get what you expect, then work with Preben. Make sure you spend time ensuring that your requirements are clear. I will engage Preben again when I next need work done.Darryl and Rita McConnell - Mosman, 13/04/2014
Thank you for the yummy hamper. We are really happy with our kitchen. Knowing what we wanted and having Preben listen to what we had in mind, then coming up with several designs from which we picked our kitchen design. The finished result was fantastic and has opened and brightened up our living space just as we wanted.
We can 100% recommend MyKitchenStar to anyone wanting a new kitchen or renovate their existing kitchen. Beautiful and quality workmanship will add value to our home. Thank you once again.Sheryl and Dave Withers - Wyoming, 01/05/2014
I have no hesitation in recommending My Kitchen Star to potential clients. Preben Lemming was thoroughly professional from start to finish. From the outset he listened to what we wanted for our kitchen renovation, gave ideas, had samples to hand and quoted in a timely manner.
On the day of the reno everything ran smoothly with electricians, plumbers and the stonemasons all of whom Preben had coordinated. Cupboards fit perfectly and we are very pleased with the result.
On all occasions Preben arrived on time or phoned if he was delayed.
Again, I would recommend My Kitchen Star / Preben Lemming because he did a great job, was reasonably priced and every step worked well.Rob and Cathy Scotton - Woongarrah, 18/06/2014
Regards, Rob and Cathy Scotton.
Dear Preben and Sonja
I would like to thank you for my beautiful new kitchen.
Working with Preben was an absolute pleasure. I had an idea of what I wanted and his suggestions improved the design and outcome, for example, suggesting self closing doors for the kitchen cupboards which gave the kitchen a sleek, sophisticated and modern look.
I found Preben’s customer service to be outstanding, always on time and if he was delayed he would always call. His customer service went beyond my expectation. As a result of the new kitchen some of my bamboo floor needed to be replaced which Preben did saving me from finding someone else to do this.
I would highly recommend My Kitchen Star to anyone thinking of updating their kitchen.
Yours sincerely, Mary Portelli.Mary Portelli - Bateau Bay, 12/07/2014
We were referred to My Kitchen Star from a reliable friend. When we first contacted Preben we were in a hurry to get things rolling. Unlike other companies that kept us waiting weeks for a quote, Preben had it to us within 6 hours. Everything was delivered as promised, on time and in a very professional manner. Quality workmanship and personalised service, sometimes lost with bigger companies was what stood out for us.
We have no hesitation in recommending My Kitchen Star to anybody considering a new kitchen. Quality, attention to detail, very experienced and understanding.
Thanks again, Aaron Drew.Lee and Aaron Drew - Castle Hill, 25/09/2014
We were extremely happy with our kitchen, laundry and TV unit.
Preben is very professional and got the job done fast. We would definitely use My Kitchen Star again in the future! Thanks, Alex.Alex and Rick Thompson - Bateau Bay, 20/10/2014
Bruce and I just wanted to formally thank you for the excellent work you and your team did in our laundry makeover.
We are extremely pleased with the result and appreciated the way in which your organisation of the job caused so little disruption to our usual routine etc. While our job was I am sure relatively small compared with much larger kitchen renovations your attention to detail and your thoroughness ensured that the end result was exactly what we wanted.
We hope we get the opportunity to recommend you to other clients in the near future.
Kind regards, Dianne and Bruce.Dianne and Bruce Hutchinson - Green Point, 05/12/2014
Thank you so much for the professionalism and dedication to making sure you gave us the best possible service you could. The detail and commitment to making sure we were happy with the result was always at your forefront. Thank you so much again.
The Toomeys.Fran and Paul Toomey - Terrigal, 16/12/2014
I turned to My Kitchen Star after two other companies had let me down. Preben took my plans and recommended a few extra touches to increase my bench space and storage, and advised me where I should spend a little more and how I could save a little. The result is a modern and spacious kitchen that is a joy to work in.
Preben was prompt and efficient, as were the other tradespeople who worked with him.Tracey Baglin - Green Point, 20/01/2015
We are very pleased with the kitchen My Kitchen Star supplied and have been enjoying the efficient, well designed modern space.
We have had numerous comments on how lovely and streamlined the kitchen looks, giving a cool calm space.
Preben had some very good ideas and his supporting trades did an excellent job.
Thank you for a job well done!
Wayne and Rose.Rose and Wayne Clark - Avoca Beach, 03/02/2015
We love our kitchen and have nothing but praise for Preben's high standards of workmanship and professionalism. His advice at the design stage was so helpful and practical, particularly regarding the purchase and design of the granite bench top.
His use of only the best European fittings/hardware gave us great confidence and resulted in a beautifully finished product.
He was always patient with our requests for modifications 'on the run'. Nothing was too much trouble. He kept to his schedule, was always tidy and always pleasant.
We would confidently recommend him to your prospective customers and allow them to have a look at our kitchen if desired.
Cheers Paul.Kerrie and Paul Malone - Terrigal, 29/07/15
Hi Preben. I am writing to express how pleased Ellen and I are with the new kitchen you provided for us at our home.
The professionalism and workmanship of you and the various contractors you engaged for the project was excellent, with the finished product more than meeting our expectations.
The new kitchen has impressed all who have seen it since its completion. I would have no hesitation in recommending you to any person who sought to have any kitchen works undertaken at their homes.
Once again, thank you and best regards. John Passanisi.John and Ellen Passanisi - St Huberts Island, 28/08/2015
We bought a new home and we were doing a full renovation over a 6 week period. Renovating can be very stressful but dealing with Preben involved no stress at all! Preben was so helpful. He provided me with options and had great advice for my new kitchen.
Even when I changed my plans and the kitchen design was completely changing, he was so helpful and quick to get back to me with the new design. Nothing was too much trouble for him!
He turned up to meet with me when he said he would, and got back to me in a timely manner. A lot of trades do not do this!
I would recommend Preben to anyone who is looking for a new kitchen. He was professional, friendly and a fantastic quality tradesman. Thank you so much for a job well done. I am so happy with my kitchen!
Kind Regards, Natalie & Troy – Green Point.Natalie Rolph - Green Point, 04/11/2015
My thanks to Preben and his team of wonderful tradesmen for my beautiful and very functional new kitchen.
It was very refreshing to find a company who arrived on time for every appointment. From the very first meeting with Preben he was very prompt, professional and listened to what I wanted from my new kitchen re-design. The timeframe he estimated for the kitchen was on time and he was also working in with my tilers who were removing a slate floor and retiling. The tradesmen that My Kitchen Star use have the same work ethic as Preben, arrive on time, courteous and very professional.
If you are looking for a quality kitchen, that is not over priced, then I would strongly recommend My Kitchen Star.Colleen Cooper - Wyoming, 02/02/2016
Thanks to My Kitchen Star, Preben provided design layout solutions that make cooking so much easier than before, all in the same space!
His knowledge and experience worked wonders and we are very happy with our fabulous new kitchen.
Hanna and Glenn.Hanna & Glenn Cooper - Tascott, 16/03/2016
We were highly satisfied with Preben designing and installing our new kitchen. At all times he listened carefully to our needs and made innovative suggestions to make best use of our small space.
As expected it was necessary to re-gyprock the crumbling walls in our old federation house prior to installation of the new cabinets, but Preben handled this extra work quickly and efficiently.
We are now delighted with our new bright, light spacious kitchen. We have ample storage space and love the soft close drawers and cupboards and the large working surfaces illuminated by down lights. Already we have recommended My Kitchen Star to friends. Thanks Preben - great job :)Margaret & Keith Ogden - East Gosford, 18/05/2016
From the very first time we met Preben he was polite, helpful and made us feel very confident that he would do a great job. We were not proved wrong. Every appointment made was kept on time, after each day’s work was completed our home was left clean and tidy. The end result is a beautiful kitchen. Just what we wanted and we could find not a single fault.
Thank you Preben for your attention to detail, courteous manner and overall great workmanship.
Chris & Pip.Chris & Pip Howe - Terrigal, 07/07/2016
We chose My Kitchen Star based on recommendations and a previous kitchen we had seen done by the company.
We found MKS to be extremely competitive and they delivered on our concept. Our kitchen turned out exactly the way we envisaged and we couldn't be happier.
The team at MKS was punctual, efficient and happy to make adjustments when requested. The work was of a high standard and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend MKS.
Thanks so much, Jennie.Jennie & Chad Quinn - East Ryde, 05/09/2016
From the time I asked for a quote for a custom made kitchen until it was completed I am still amazed at the level of professionalism shown by Preben.
Competitive price, quality material and fittings used, prompt, efficient and friendly service, nothing was too much trouble. Without hesitation I would recommend My Kitchen Star.
Thank you, Margaret Kelly.Margaret Kelly - Woy Woy 07/10/2016
Thank you very much for your effort in ensuring our new kitchen was installed pre-Xmas. It must have been quite difficult organising the various trade people at this time of the year.
We were very impressed by your professionalism through the whole process from first contact, consultation and the design. Realistic time estimates were appreciated as was the straight forward approach to costing and design.
Observing someone work who obviously knew what they were doing was also gratifying.
We would like to wish you the very best for the future.
Kind regards, Charles and Guanglan.Charles Faulkner - Saratoga 17/01/2017
My Kitchen Star are so easy to deal with. As soon as I walked into their showroom I knew exactly what I wanted. The kitchen they have designed for us is amazing, it has an amazing use of space and I now have more room.
I have had to deal with a lot of tradies in the last couple of months and they should take ticket out of My Kitchen Star's books. They turn up when they say they will and they do a quality job and are very professional.
I have to especially mention their electrician. We hired him to do the work to the pool in which our site foreman gave us the wrong information. We needed to get it fixed up urgently and he turned up within the hour. He also came back on a Friday afternoon at 5:30pm to fix up the power point in the laundry when we thought he was not coming.
To this I would have no problem referring friends and family to My Kitchen Star in which I already have.Samantha Morrell & Brett Ritchie - Mardi 27/04/2017
We made a big decision to transform our kitchen and obviously one of the hardest tasks is choosing the right people to do it. We came across the My Kitchen Star showroom by mistake and have not looked back since.
Both Preben and Sonja were extremely welcoming, and you sensed their professionalism almost immediately. Once Preben visited our home, the planning started quite quickly and what we loved was that Preben put forward different ideas, design options and recommendations to us. Along with the fact that we knew we were getting high quality finishes & hardware, this felt like a great fit compared to others we had seen.
The high standard of workmanship, professionalism and attention to detail was evident and Preben’s willingness to work closely with us for any adjustments was first class. But enough of the words. At the end of the day what you are really looking for is how did the final product end up – and we are absolutely thrilled. The fact that everyone who enters our home comments on the amazing transformation and quality says it all.
We highly recommend Preben & Sonja’s My Kitchen Star to anyone.Michael & Melisa Lienesch - Wyoming 08/05/2017
Dear Sonja and Preben,
Great design, functionality, and just what we were looking for, at both of our properties, both at Bensville and St Huberts Island. Our visitors comment on the lovely kitchens.Ingeborg Stiefel & Andreas Zollmann - Bensville 10/07/2017
We couldn't be happier in choosing My Kitchen Star to design and install our kitchen, laundry and bathroom cabinets.
The quality of their work is superior to any other company we looked at. Preben was very good to deal with from the design to the install. They were on time and the install went well. They work in with the other trades and we were impressed with the way the job was finished. We also found good value for our money.
We would highly recommend My Kitchen Star. Regards Matt & Darian.Matt & Darian Mills - Umina Beach 18/08/2017
David and I wanted to thank you so much for our beautiful kitchen. It has been finished beyond our expectations and on time and within our price range with no hiccups. As you know we only obtained one quote which was yours after seeing such a great array of products and craftsmanship in your showroom. You managed to meet our budget and provide a quality kitchen, meeting all our requirements and going above and beyond with any little requests we made along the way. It was lovely to work with such easy going professional people. We can't thank you enough. Megan Radford.Megan & David Radford - Kincumber 14/09/2017
Dear Preben and Sonja,
Glenna and I, want to thank you for our fabulous kitchen you designed and built for our family home and I’d like everyone to know it as well.
To anyone reading this, do yourself a favour and contact Preben and Sonja at My Kitchen Star, you won’t be disappointed.
My wife and I could not be happier with the results of our designed and custom built kitchen from My Kitchen Star. We chose My Kitchen Star after seeing our neighbour’s new kitchen built and designed by Preben and Sonja, and were so glad we did.
I highly recommend you do yourself a favour ring Preben or Sonja and take the time to go to their showroom and discuss your plans.
They will walk you through every step of the process in a friendly professionalism manner without the big sell. Both he and Sonja truly focus on the client.
We couldn’t be happier.
Kind regards, Brett and Glenna Kennedy.Brett & Glenna Kennedy - Wyoming, Gosford 10/10/2017
Judith and I are very happy to express our satisfaction and happiness of the successful outcome from My Kitchen Star, the project was completed as planned with no fuss.
We have been very pleased with the professionalism and the fine job executed by the owner Preben and his assistant David.
We have already recommended your company to some of our close friends.
Yours Sincerely, Naga & Judith Nagarajah.Naga & Judith Nagarajah - Green Point 03/11/2017
Preben was great to work with and helped us to resolve our kitchen to an exceptional level of detail, thought and design.
The final execution and craftsmanship of his work was excellent.
We would highly recommend working with My Kitchen Star.Aaron & Tetchie Tregent - Narrabeen 13/12/2017
We are absolutely thrilled with our beautiful new kitchen and highly recommend Preben and his team at My Kitchen Star.
As new-comers to Australia we are very grateful for Preben and Sonja's help and advice in an area where we have little experience. From the initial design right down to the finishing touches everything was dealt with in a professional manner.
Preben always kept us updated as to the progress of the project and each phase of the installation was completed on time.
We have already recommended My Kitchen Star to two of our friends and we are certain you will be hearing from them soon.
Thank-you Preben and Sonja, you are stars!!Brent & Heidi Steyn - Gosford 27/03/2018
My Kitchen Star - MKS became our Kitchen, Bathroom and Laundry Heroes.
Ideally, we wanted someone that could take our initially thoughts, add value and deliver a dream kitchen and more.
We consulted a number of providers in our area including companies that had had supplied kitchens etc to us in the past. After reviewing all the responses we had no hesitation in committing to MKS.
MKS carried out the end to end removal and installation of our kitchen, bathroom and laundry including all the associated trades and services. This involved stripping out / gutting those rooms and remediating any issues found before creating the new rooms.
In combination with the tiles, appliances, PC items chosen MKS delivered our dream kitchen, bathroom and laundry. Some of the appliances and PC items came from an MKS supplier and that alone saved us well over a $1000 without any less quality when compared to mainstream brands.
We are extremely fussy and detail focused people and MKS took all our feedback on board at every step and responded appropriately.
We entrusted MKS to deliver the end solution and that involved numerous tradespeople coming and going inside our home. Without exception all of them upheld the high standards of MKS in terms of respect, cleaning up, attention to detail, quality of work etc.
We have received a lot of feedback on the end results including from very experienced tradespeople. The feedback has been full of comments like:
Oh wow, oh wow.. I love it .. Awesome.. Beautiful.. Wow.. Oh gosh.. Oh I love this…
MKS also built a bespoke entertainment unit for us to our requirements. It is a lovely piece of furniture in its own right.
We recommend MKS without hesitation and anyone that needs a new kitchen or any of the other items MKS supply, should definitely be speaking to MKS.
Chris and Marilyn Jackson.Chris & Marilyn Jackson - Umina Beach 23/05/2018
We felt like it was a real partnership, working together to get the best outcome, and we are delighted with the results.
The service, quality and innovative ideas are second to none.
Julie Sheather.Julie Sheather - Terrigal 05/07/2018
We’d like to share our wonderful experience with MKS for other potential buyers.
Preben and Sonja from their initial quotation were very professional and accommodating of our dreams, punctual and honest. Although we compromised on a few things due to cost we’re really happy with the end result and love how the synergy and continuity flow.
What made MKS stand out from the other competitors was how we dealt directly with the builder and not the sales person, we got the answers to our questions immediately. This was reflected during the installation as everything fitted the way it was designed. The quality and craftsmanship were second to none.
You were a pleasure to deal with and we would highly recommend MKS to any future buyers.
Pauline and Shannon.Pauline and Shannon Riley - Green Point 06/08/2018
Hi Sonja & Preben
I just wanted to thank you for the wonderful job you did on our kitchen, laundry & kitchenette.
The service, professionalism, workmanship & time frame was nothing short of excellent. It was a pleasure to have Preben & his team at our home. I am so happy with the end result, I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending My Kitchen Star to any perspective client.
I have already passed your number onto others, we did have a couple of other quotes, but, the overall quote providing exactly what would be done in all 3 areas & the price made the whole situation very easy for us. We liked Preben straight away and could tell he has a great wealth of knowledge about the industry.
We wish you both all the very best & if I need another kitchen or changes you will be my first call.
Kindest Regards, Debbie & Mal Winzer.Debbie and Mal Winzer - Killarney Vale 16/10/2018
