Why Distinctive?

Our Story

In 1977, Bathurst NSW was a town of about 20,000 people. Built-in wardrobes were really still quite a new idea, and the newly developed steel-framed sliding wardrobe doors had not reached the Upper Blue Mountains or Central West NSW. Distinctive Wardrobe Solutions, initially Sunset Installations, was established to bring the latest in wardrobe and storage to the region.

Most of Bathurst’s homes had no built-in wardrobes. So there was a great opportunity for people's freestanding wardrobes (that never really fitted properly in the room and collected dust on top), to be replaced with made to size space efficient built in wardrobes.

Satisfied clients told their family and friends, and word of mouth fuelled the growth of the new family business. Bathurst’s leading home builders soon caught on to the new trend and began to depend on Distinctive (Sunset) for reliable service and great quality. Expanding into the surrounding towns, the company grew steadily, adding new product lines and moving from the original rented premises into the first premises of our own, built specifically for us in 1988.

As more of the family joined the business, the company continued to grow. New premises were again needed, so another new building was built and occupied in 2004. In 2005, a family friend introduced one of the founders' sons to a Canberra builder on a 35-unit development under construction. The timing was right, and the builder went on and ordered the wardrobes fit out for his project.

From that base, Distinctive was able to build a customer base in Canberra and then in other larger centres such as Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Wollongong, Newcastle etc supplying the construction sector from home builders through to multi-residential developments, now not only with wardrobes and related joinery, but also shower screens, splashbacks and mirrors.

More and more regions are being serviced and more product lines are continually being added, but we always hold dear the foundational principles that were established by the founder: commitment to dependable service and quality products.

Our commitment to you is to deliver a range of premium internal construction products with seamless project support, outstanding customer service and installation that leaves you with a distinctive sense of pride at project handover.
