Founded by Robert and Deanna Phillips in 1995, we originally started out as DKR in Kitchener Waterloo, and things took off from there.

After many successful projects, the company assembled a team of experienced craftsmen and began to specialize in kitchen and bathroom cabinetry; and complete renovations from concept to completion.  The company also creates speciality wood products such as bars and entertainment units, and architectural millwork.  In 2009 we opened our shop in Waterloo and renamed the company – Grand River Kitchens and Woodworking, Inc. –  to better reflect our area of specialization.
