Testimonials

Over the past five years, Matthew and his team at Finer Finishers have provided first-class services to both my company and clients.

Due to the nature of high-end property we create, we require the finest craftsmanship in all aspects of our developments and the Finer Finishers team were able to exceed our expectations for quality, with each piece delivered on time, to the very highest standards.

I’m proud to say I now also own some hand-made custom joinery furniture in my own home. I look forward to working with Matthew and his team on future projects.

After the outstanding restoration job they did of an old mantle we decided
to ask the Finer Finishers team to custom build a piece of furniture for our
cottage. The result was a beautiful and functional custom built wall unit
for our cottage. Their meticulous craftsmanship and attention to detail has
ensured that the wall unit integrates well into the space.

We approached Matthew from Finer Living to give us some fresh ideas on a kitchen renovation in our home.

Matthew not only came up with some amazing kitchen ideas, but he also gave us great ideas on remodelling the whole living areas of the house.

 

The result is an amazing functional bespoke kitchen, a feature bookcase in our lounge room with matching partition screen in the newly created entrance way to the house.

Even the new front door stands out as a work of art.

The quality of the work is amazing and has inspired us to redecorate the whole house from floor to ceilings.

 

Finer living handled all of the contractors required for the whole job and came in within our budget.

 

Our home now has more features than a new home and a lovely warm feel.

 

Nice Job Matthew

 

 

Yours Sincerely

We strongly recommend Finer Finishers for their high standards and professional work. We were impressed by Matthews ability to find solutions to non-standard antique repairs… whose skills match those we had been used to in Europe.

Matthew and his team have created something unique that could not be bought from a store at any price.  With exceptional quality displayed in the construction, finishes, and details, I look forward to enjoying my dry bar with friends and family for many years to come.  To complement the end result, the design, construction and installation process was hassle free.  Would recommend Matthew and his team to anyone who is looking for that special piece.

True craftsmanship is a rarity in this day and age and Matthew Hunsche has created several pieces of furniture to complement our lifestyle that you could simply not go out and buy. The way Matthew and his team integrated my ideas into practical and detailed designs, turned the work into something that was beyond what I could have even imagined. The refined aesthetics of his work have completely transformed the space into something both practical and quite beautiful. I am delighted with the results.

I would like to thank Mathew and his Team at Finer Living for assisting in delivering our Dream Home.

When we were selecting our cabinet maker we knew we needed to partner with a cabinet maker that could deliver the high level of detail that our project required.

Finer Living  surpassed our expectations in quality and detail from the dovetail draws to the solid timber external finishes.

I have no problem recommending Finer Living  for any high end project for future work .

“I was really impressed by the standard of workmanship of the Finer Finshers’ team.  I roughly designed what I wanted and Matthew suggested some enhancements.  The end product exceeded my expectations and we have to say that the wall unit with bookcases has really finished off our downstairs open plan area.  It has really brought it to a new level.  I couldn’t be happier.  Matthew’s team were very approachable and professional and I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending them.  For the quality of product and the impact it has made on our home, it has been more than worth the investment.”

We used Finer Finishers to complete an extensive job removing and installing all of our kitchen cabinetry and dining room cabinetry. They were very professional and provided a high quality finish in all aspects of the job. They were also very innovative in providing solutions to maximise our cupboard space and make it more efficient to use. We would have no hesitation in recommending Finer Finishers.

Experience and meticulous craftsmanship combined to give an exceptional result for the wall and ceiling panelling. An added bonus was the efficient and smooth, hassle-free installation of the work. Highly recommended.

Matthew and the team at Finer Finishers designed and delivered something unique and beautiful for every room in our house. Using an environmentally sustainable product called Eco-Core we commissioned Matthew to build functional yet creative pieces that would make our house a home and he certainly didn’t disappoint. Matthew is a true master craftsman and along with his team of artisans delivered more from this product than we thought possible. Everyone was extremely professional and we had a very positive experience from start to finish. Thank you all so much. You haven’t seen the last of us!

Matthew and his team were recommended by our interior designer to refurbish our small apartment in Brisbane.

With clear instructions and minimal supervision, the team provided an excellent service with work of high quality, including joinery, floor coverings, door and window replacement, kitchen fit-out, provision of appliances and restoration of a valued large round table. The team maintained a clean, tidy worksite with prompt removal of waste and debris.

We are very happy with the results of their work and warmly recommend Matthew and the Finer Finishers team

I recently used Finer Living for a complete apartment renovation which included full custom designed kitchen, bedroom, office and bathroom.  In conjunction with Anju Designs, Finer Living tailored and delivered a clean modern living space that presented as desired; minimal, clean and functional.  Attention to detail was immaculate, and the organisation was effective in communicating and solving any issues that arose.  Matthew is easy to contact and committed to completing all minor touch ups without extra charge.  Both build and design worked hand in hand in order to produce the home I visualised living in.  I would recommend Finer Living to anyone looking for a custom high-end result with minimal issues.”

We were first introduced to Matthew by our designer Penny from Anju Designs, as we wanted to do a complete renovation on our apartment in Kangaroo Point.

We selected Matthew to do the work as his quote was acceptable compared to others, but he was able to do the complete renovation from demolition right through to the finished product, including all joinery. This proved to be the best solution for us.

We have been totally happy with Matthew and his team throughout the whole process, and the quality of the workmanship is second to none.

Thank you Matthew and your team for making our project go so well and we are absolutely delighted with our finished apartment. We highly recommend Matthew and Finer Living.

[Finer Finishers] restored a silky oak dining table and made 6 matching chairs and 2 carvers. We were very impressed with Matthew’s knowledge of furniture and timber, his attention to detail and pride in his work. The quality of workmanship from Finer Finishers is excellent and we have no hesitation recommending them.

Re: Matthew Hunsche, Finer Finishers

I have offered this reference voluntarily, not from a request.

My wife and I initially had a long conversation with Matthew Hunsche about a major demolition and renovation of our kitchen, two dated bathrooms and a laundry in our city apartment. The details of the conversation covered projected costs, timeline, professional experience, insurance, body corporate liaison, the oversight of a range of trades, interpreting the designer’s plans, amongst an even broader range of topics. We agreed to proceed with Matthew’s proposals.
My wife and I were overseas for 3 months during the project, but we know there was minimal disruption for neighbours, cooperation with the Building Manager, full physical protection of the rest of the apartment, plus regular texts and photos updating my wife and myself on progress at every stage.
We were really impressed with Matthew’s genuine personal style as well as his personal oversight over every detail of the renovations, including returning the whole apartment to an impeccably clean state.
When I returned from overseas and saw first-hand the quality of the work and how the apartment had been transformed, I was even more impressed.
There had clearly been obstacles that could have caused potential delays and cost over-runs, but they were averted because of Matthew’s persistence, professionalism, discriminating respect for the design, and adherence to our agreed parameters established at the outset.
I have worked with many architects, builders and designers over the years, especially in my role in developing a new University as a Vice Chancellor, and I can honestly say I have never experienced a higher standard of meticulous workmanship.
I would unconditionally commend Matthew to anyone considering these kinds of undertakings, for which he is demonstrably highly qualified, experienced and successful.
