HLN - HOME LIVING: NORTH, Tuesday, December 13, 2011 5 ADVERTISING FEATURE SHEREE'S KITCHEN RULES DAUGHTER TAKES OVER FAMILY BUSINESS FROM HER DAD Janita Singh Sheree Degabriele has introduced new ideas for improving customer service and productivity. KITCHENS Who: Kitchens by Emanuel has been manufacturing and supplying kitchens since 1999. It specialises in kitchens, built-in furniture and in interior design. Where: The factory/showroom is at 22 Foxall Rd, Kellyville. Inquiries: 9629 6866 or kitchensbyemanuel.com.au I love the whole process of kitchens from design to manufacture -- Sheree Degabriele AWARD-WINNING Kitchens by Emanuel is a household name. A family-owned business, Kitchens by Emanuel custom builds kitchens and does joinery work for the home. It manages projects right through from de- signing to manufacturing. Recently winning the Kitchen of the Year award for the Hills Building and Designs Awards 2011 has given the business a further boost. Kitchens by Emanuel has been manufacturing and supplying kitchens since 1999. Director Emanuel Degabriele has been in the industry since 1976 specialising in kitchens and built- in furniture. He has been ac- companied by his daughter Sheree, a cabinet maker, since 2005. She specialises in interior design. With a completely renovated showroom, Sheree has taken over the business reigns, bringing in new ideas for improving customer service and productivity. ''This showroom marks a new and refreshed beginning for Kitchens by Emanuel as I take over the family business,'' she said. ''I had been going with dad to work since I was a very little girl. ''I love the whole process of kitchens from design to manufac- ture. ''I finished year 10 and started my shop fitting and detailed join- ery apprenticeship and continued to do my diploma of interior design. After six years full-time working in the factory, it was time to move and give dad a break. ''So for the past year I have been busy redirecting the future of the business,'' she said. SAFETY DON'T FALL FOR WINDOW TRAP EVERY year about 8000 children are taken to hospital as a result of a fall, including about 50 who have fallen from a window or balcony. For some, this will be fatal. The risk is higher in summer when families leave windows and doors open both day and night. NSW Fair Trading has launched a safety campaign called Think Child Safe, with helpful infor- mation on ways to avoid these accidents. Fair Trading says every carer of young children, landlords of rent- ed residential premises or real estate property managers should be made aware of the risks associ- ated with children falling from open windows, or those left un- attended on balconies. It says children aged between 1 and 5 are most at risk, as they are naturally curious and lack the ability to recognise danger. Children can fall from a window that has been left open only 10cm, even if a flyscreen is present. Preventing falls is particularly relevant today with many families choosing to rent in medium den- sity and multistorey develop- ments. There are a few simple and straightforward steps that can be taken to reduce the risk of a fall injury to children in the home. Information about the steps you can take is available at shop. nsw.gov.au or call 13 32 20. &ACTORY DIRECT TO YOU m!S SEEN IN (OME "EAUTIFULn COMPARE OUR PRICES!
