Kate and Juan | 2018 | Over the years Dan has created several bespoke furniture pieces with great attention to detail and overall quality. The latest fitted cabinets for my office, matching the units he created for our living room, have been completed within the agreed time to a very high spec, something hard to do as the walls in this Victorian property are not straight. Dan was very patient and accommodating taking several measurements to ensure all requirements were achieved (in line with chimney breast, top of cabinets in line with picture rail, height/depth of various books, strong shelves to take heavy weights, etc.)Moreover we discussed a design that in the future could convert the cabinets into wardrobes by adding some doors to the top sections and making very few small adaptations; therefore, future-proofing the solution. The paint was chosen by us and he supplied and painted the units to a very smooth finish (3 coats). Installation was on time and efficient with little mess in the process (he did some work outside of the house to minimise wood dust).Overall we can recommend Dan for his great craftmanship, care and wonderful attitude to delivering great quality pieces. 10/10. Federica Castellini Holland | 2017 | FavershamDan was great at building our customised large drawer. It was a fairly small job, but his attention to detail was excellent and he visited in person twice to make sure all dimensions were accurate. We were very happy with the finished result and we would happily recommend KPS to anyone looking for furniture making and general joinery work.Ben Metcalfe | 2017| FavershamKPS turned a large, but unpractical cupboard into a fitted wardrobe with extensive shelving and clothes rails. It makes the maximum use of the space,it works really well and it looks great. It has solved all our storage problems for clothes and shoes. Daniel was really helpful and it was a pleasure to have him working in our home. I have a large collection of vinyl records but was struggling to find suitable shelving for them. Daniel solved all my problems by building and fitting two sturdy but sleek units. They house all my records comfortably and look stylish and tidy. Problem solved !Helen Brenchley | 2017| AshfordMy lovely bookcase & chest of drawers are exactly what I wanted - but better. Both built to my exact spec. at a very acceptable price and much admired by friends. I’m hoping for another piece by Mr. Slater in the near future.C Gamble | 2017 | FavershamDan Slater at KPS has done a lot of carpentry and joinery work in our house. He has been great and his workmanship is superb, the more so as the house is a very old timbered one with few straight walls or level floors. He put in a fantastic bespoke kitchen for us, delivering exactly what we had wanted, even some very individual features which weren't at all straightforward. We had approached other kitchen suppliers - including John Lewis - none of which was able to provide the features we wanted in the space available. Dan was the only person to bring a 'can do" approach to the challenge. He has also installed a fantastic oak staircase in another awkward space down to the cellar. We have oak panelling in our sitting room which Dan made and fitted. Visitors immediately notice it and comment on how fantastic it is and beautifullyin keeping with the house. He's also fitted bespoke book-shelving (froor to ceiling) and glass display shelving, which is also much admired. He is versatile, very profesional and a pleasure to work with. Would thoroughly recommend him.Ian Lumsden | 2017 | FavershamWe were very pleased with the quality of Dan's work. He was able to visualise our ideas and make them practical. He listened carefully to what we wanted and was flexible as our designs changed. Dan was considerate of our needs and fitting around our family. We have already recommended him to family and friends. Andrew and Louise Lees | Faversham 2016Daniel is a highly skilled craftsman who shows a great deal of pride in his work. He designed and built our kitchen which is beautiful and he also built a brilliant floor to ceiling cupboard in our bathroom and did some wood paneling. He is extremely reliable and goes the extra mile for his customers and we have recommended KPS to several of our friends.Michael Hoey |Emeritus Professor of English Language, University of Liverpool | Faversham 2016KPS Furniture did a tremendous job of constructing and installing shelving and office furniture in my study. I am amazed how neat the new furniture is. I seem to have twice as much space in the room without anything having been sacrificed in the way of storage. The work was done unobtrusively and efficiently while I was recovering from an operation and I was not once inconvenienced. I would give KPS a 5* rating on a scale of one to five.A Jordan-Smith | Faversham 2014KPS and Dan were recommended to us by our neighbour and I am glad that they did! Dan took my vision and made it happen, in fact better than I had envisaged. We can now entertain our growing family around one table and also put the world to right at my little bar. I am more that happy to recommend Dan and will definitely be back with my next building project. Thanks again.
Garry and Debbie| Oare Village | December 2018How refreshing it is to meet someone like Dan, who takes pride in his work. Dan has done several jobs in the past for us, which include 2 solid oak larder cupboards. We were so happy with them, we got him to make the rest of our kitchen. Dan was very helpful in giving us guidance to what would look nice and what would work well together. We cannot speak highly enough of Dan's work and his attention to detail. We have already recommended Dan to our family and friends because of his outstanding work. We give Dan 10/10.
Emma Healey & Simon Healey | London | January 2019Daniel had built some beautiful shelves and shelf/cupboard units for my parents in Kent, and on the basis of that, we asked him to build 1) tall bookcase for children’s books 2) three wall-mounted bookshelves for a home den 3) small TV console floating shelf unit. We are in London and Daniel made the shelves and arranged for delivery (we paid for this separately) with all the appropriate mounting fixings etc. Easy to fit (my husband installed in a few hours)(and Daniel advised us over the phone as well). All very straightforward. We are delighted with the quality and appearance of the various bookcases. We love that they are solid wood. The finish is perfect (we had them painted white by Daniel) and they all fit perfectly in all the spaces we measured for Daniel. It has been lovely to tidy away all the books that were starting to take over the house! We are very happy customers, we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Daniel, and will without question use Daniel to make further bookcases or cupboards whenever they are needed.
