"Hello Dan! Just wanted to drop you a note and thank you for the excellent job you did on the custom kitchen cabinets, fire place surrounds/built-ins, office furniture and bathroom vanities on our recent new home construction. Having worked with you on previous occasions, we were confident in your abilities, superior craftsmanship and professionalism. The size and scope of this job, along with the construction schedule timeline made the importance of your work even more critical. Your multiple trips to our job site, commitment to quality and detail exceeded expectations!! Thanks again for a job well done and please share this information with any prospective clients!!!"

Steve & Sue Schmitz

"When I was looking for someone to build custom floor to ceiling bookcases and a fireplace mantel for my home library, I found Cabinet Innovations on the Internet. I could tell from pictures of Dan’s work on the website that he would be a perfectionist in the quality of his work. After I emailed a drawing of what I had in mind along with measurements, Dan had great design suggestions and gave a precise and very reasonable price. Everything was installed exactly on time, and the library turned out more beautiful than I ever imagined. When my dad, who is an engineer and has very exacting standards, visited and saw the bookcases, he stood there and said just one word, “Wow!” which says it all."

Ami Janda

"We have used Dan Nickles and Cabinet innovations since 2001 for all of our cabinet needs and have always been very satisfied with his work and attention to detail. He often times fixes things I don’t even notice are “wrong”. Cabinet innovations has done a full basement with bookshelves, entertainment station and desk, a custom kitchen, custom built in buffet, and a custom window bench over a radiator system. All of these project enhance the livability and value of our home. We have just contact Dan @ Cabinet Innovations for them to create radiator covers for us and know he will create something beautiful."

Matt & Stef Barnes

"Dan has worked on two separate projects for us, and we couldn’t be happier with both of them. When we updated our kitchen, we asked Dan to build an island matching our existing cabinets. Not only did he do a perfect job matching the pattern and the hardware, he had the island ready to be installed on schedule (which was crucial, because we were coordinating with an electrician and our countertop installation).

Three years later, when we needed a bookcase and entertainment center for our remodeled family room, of course we called Dan. Once again, he provided an excellent design, both attractive and functional, and delivery and installation on schedule. We never hesitate to recommend Dan to anyone looking for quality work. Satisfied repeat customers, Hopkins, MN"

John Luedke

"Dan has built large bead board cupboards, an entertainment center, fireplace surround, end tables and an office system for our home. I appreciate that he listens to our needs and is willing to also share his professional ideas, a fine balance that is lacking in the industry. His artistry and craftsmanship are amazing. Dan was a great find and a pleasure to work with."

Sharla Boese

"Dan’s work is very high-end, and we enjoyed working with him. The thing that I most appreciated was his honesty- he truly knows what will work and what won’t. It makes the finished product outstanding! I have recommended him to anyone I know who wants custom work done."

Mary Campbell

"Dan has taken on three big projects for us, starting first with entry way storage cubbies and drawers in our last home. We were so happy with that project that we had him re-create the same thing in our current home. In addition, we had a mid-century, full-wall fireplace that was very outdated. I sketched my idea for shelving, storage and a fireplace mantle on paper, and Dan literally brought it to life exactly as I had drawn it. He was on time, on budget and totally "on" with his design, ideas and suggestions. On top of all that - he's a super nice guy and we would wholeheartedly recommend his talent!"

Brent & Lisa Boston

"I would highly recommend Dan Nickles for all of your cabinetry needs. I was introduced to him through a General Contractor I used to build an addition on my home a few years ago. I was so impressed with his work, that I invited him back to do a number of smaller projects for me and I am happy to say that my home has been transformed because of this very talented and dedicated person. Dan’s work is top notch and he is great to work with.

I am a very busy working professional woman, wife and mother and time is very precious to me. I also have very high standards and can be a handful to work with at times. Dan is very pleasant, patient and proficient. He listened to what I wanted from the projects, put up with my changes, made sound suggestions and delivered high quality cabinetry. The projects at my home that he completed are an entertainment unit, bookcase, fireplace mantel, kitchen center island and bar. I am very satisfied with everything.

If you want the best in the business, call Dan at Cabinet Innovations. I can assure I have and will continue to."

Pamela Alexander

"Dan Nickles was an immense help when we remodeled our kitchen in 2007. He suggested ways to redo the kitchen layout, then designed and custom built the cabinets. He removed the old cabinetry and installed the new cabinets, which fit beautifully into place.

The cabinets are of top-notch construction quality, were reasonable in price, and remain good looking and fully functional a year later. Dan was also very helpful for suggesting timetables for reconstructing our kitchen, allowing us to serve as our own contractor with considerable cost savings.

We would not hesitate to recommend Dan Nickles of Cabinet Innovations to others planning a kitchen with custom built cabinets."

David & Shirley Olson

"If you want perfection in workmanship, honesty, and promptness in timing, education in accomplishing the project and a totally spectacular end result-Dan Nickles is your man. Dan has done five separate projects for me and each one has been nothing less than perfection. He is a master of his craft, bar none.

Dan can make kitchen cabinets, bathroom vanities, entertainment centers and anything else you want custom made. He goes the extra mile for his customers. When Dan tells you the delivery is in three weeks, IT is in three weeks. He is a joy to work with. Words cannot express how highly I think of Dan. I have and would recommend him to any and all I know. Thank you Dan!"

Kay Mockenhaupt

"Cabinet Innovations designed and manufactured two custom vanity bases, a tub surround and two nightstands for us. All work was of excellent quality and delivered on time. We worked directly with Dan who was resourceful and patient throughout our remodeling project. We will call Cabinet Innovations first for any future custom cabinetry needs."
