Meet Our Team

We are an energetic team of professional carpenters, designers and managers that thrive on providing exceptional customer service to the people of Vancouver Island.  We believe in the importance of great kitchens–they’re the heart of the home–and we work with other Local companies as well as IKEA to offer a range of cabinetry options.

Most of us have been with IKAN since it opened in 2011.   Whatever our task, we’re committed to our clients and want to make sure their project goes smoothly and is over all positive for them.  We believe it’s the details that make the difference–from our organized admin team to our talented carpenters.

At the end of the day, we are happy when we see IKAN clients in their new, beautiful kitchens, which we were able to help create.  Seeing the kitchen come to life, and the joy it brings our clients is the ultimate satisfactions.


KYLER is a Red Seal Journeyman Carpenter with a true passion and talent for his craft.  He manages IKAN’s installations and oversees the quality of each kitchen.  KYLER has been in the industry for almost fifteen years and has worked for two premiere home building companies alongside some of the most skilled trades people in Victoria.  KYLER is known for his dedication to quality in even the smallest of details.  “I created IKAN because I believe kitchens and installations on Vancouver Island are overpriced, and I believe IKAN offers great design, quality, and pricing.  I’m happy we’re enabling people on the island to take advantage of their kitchens.”


A trained architect with years of experience leading new builds and renovations, MATT manages many IKAN projects and supports our design team.  His excellent communication skills and focus on quality align with IKAN’s commitment to exceptional kitchens and customer experiences. MATT’s previous work in kitchen design and project management garnered him a knack for good planning, organization, and a meticulous attention to detail.  His knowledge of building science, systems, codes and standards is an asset to many of our projects—as is his great sense of humour.
