We're Evoke Bathrooms and Kitchens and we believe in the art of renovating.
2016 saw the beginning of the Evoke name, only back then, we were Evoke Renovations, a home renovations company with an emphasis on providing an excellent customer experience. Unfortunately, very quickly we became tired of being let down, delayed and disappointed by subcontractors.
We knew something had to change.
So we decided to re-write the renovating norm and create our own team of dedicated tradespeople. By having our own builder, plumber, electrician, plasterer, painter and tiler all under one roof we were able to remove the middle man and complete our projects from beginning to end effortlessly. A short time after, an opportunity came around for us to take over ownership of Cabinet Craft – a local joinery and kitchen manufacturer, and it just made sense. Unlike many other renovation companies that can only supply and install, we are able to manufacture our own bespoke joinery right here in Christchurch. Over time, we began to realise that our passion was potent when completing bathrooms and kitchens, ergo the decision to combine Evoke Renovations and Cabinet Craft.
Welcome to Evoke Bathrooms and Kitchens. We’re glad you’re here.
Anthony Wheeler - Founder, Project Manager
Anthony was born and raised in North London and has worked in the renovating industry for over 30 years. He qualified as a plumber and electrician in London before moving to New Zealand where he worked for various renovations companies across Christchurch. Deciding it was time for his own venture, Anthony started out fulfilling handyman work and small-scale renovations before gradually moving onto renovations of all sizes and finally specialising in bespoke bathrooms and kitchens.
“I’m really proud of what we have created with Evoke. Our great team, effective systems and wonderful clients are pillars in the success of this business.”
Joanne Wheeler - Founder, Financial Manager
Joanne was born and raised in Central London which is also where she began her finance and accounting career 35 years ago. Working for the prestigious CB Hillier Parker and Rolls Royce, she was able to gain an extremely high level of training and experience which she now utilises within Evoke Bathrooms and Kitchens.
“I really enjoy working with Anthony and feel blessed to have such a cracking team, without the team and their dedication to delivering top notch workmanship, we wouldn't be where we are today.”
Evoke is established by Anthony and Joanne. The dream of creating a complete renovation package comes to fruition.
Evokes reputation soars. This is also the year we took over ownership of Cabinet Craft Ltd, a local kitchen joinery business.
The amalgamation of Evoke Renovations and Cabinet Craft. We rebrand our company to become more streamlined and relevant for our customers. Two companies become one: Evoke Bathrooms and Kitchens.
2018 - 2019
Our unique, customer-focused business strategy is developed.
Our team continues to carefully expand. With all our trades now in-house, our process becomes more efficient and more effective.
The literal meaning of evoke is "to cause something to be remembered or expressed".
Our goal is to help evoke the imagination. To put all your ideas on the table, explore them, understand them, expand them.
We believe renovating is an expressive art form. In order to reach your homes full potential, one requires great skill, an eye for detail and the inability to settle for anything less than perfect.
