The Dell Anno Difference: Cohesive Design for Kitchens, Bathrooms, and Closets

Claudia Duffield

Dell Anno Vancouver, under the adept leadership of Claudia Duffield, has carved out a unique niche in the home storage solution industry, emerging as a one-stop shop for comprehensive home storage needs. This includes kitchens, bathrooms, and closets, tailored to each client’s specific requirements. Duffield’s journey from a closet franchise designer to Dell Anno Vancouver exemplifies not just a transition in roles but also a paradigm shift in understanding and catering to the holistic storage needs of homeowners.

At the core of Dell Anno Vancouver’s philosophy is the notion of integrated storage solutions. This approach was inspired by Duffield’s pivotal research trip to Brazil in 2013, where she discovered their distinct approach to home furnishing. Unlike the segmented approach common in Canada, Brazilian homes often feature custom-designed storage solutions for the entire house, all provided by a single company. Duffield translated this holistic method into the Canadian context, adapting it to local preferences and building codes. “It is just a different way to look at how to completely coordinate all the storage in a home,” Duffield remarks, emphasizing her commitment to providing comprehensive storage solutions.

Dell Anno Vancouver distinguishes itself through its project management prowess, seamlessly integrating diverse storage components throughout the house. The company’s strength lies in its ability to design and manage projects that encompass kitchens, bathrooms, and closets, ensuring a cohesive and harmonious storage solution throughout the home. This streamlined approach not only enhances the aesthetic appeal of the spaces but also ensures functional efficiency.

Central to Dell Anno Vancouver’s success is its focus on customer service and marketing. Duffield and her team have excelled in building strong relationships with clients, understanding their needs, and delivering solutions that align with their lifestyle and budget. “We have the time to think through with the client, talk about what they need, what they want, how much they can afford,” Duffield explains. This client-centric approach has been instrumental in establishing Dell Anno as a brand synonymous with reliability, quality, and customer satisfaction.

Dell Anno’ Vancouvers expertise extends beyond design to encompass the complexities of logistics and coordination involved in importing and assembling cabinetry and other storage elements. Duffield’s experience in importing products, coupled with the use of precise software for design and coordination, ensures that every project is executed with the utmost attention to detail.

“I’ve worked so far with probably seven different manufacturers in Canada and we are still looking for the perfect manufacturer for what we offer, because for our cabinetry side, we need to have good, better, best options,” Says Duffield,  “It’s a combination of a needing manufacturer that understands the value of the high-end service that we are working with and can provide quality products.”

The company’s project management capability is further highlighted in the way it handles the diverse elements of a home. Duffield and her team are skilled in designing systems that provide homeowners with a seamless experience, where the only variation is in the installation dates and processes of different components like kitchens and smaller closets. This meticulous coordination underscores Dell Anno’s commitment to delivering not just products but complete, hassle-free solutions.

For practical busy homeowners like Duffield, talking to one company who can do everything kitchen and closet related gives them back precious time and confidence their project will be well executed.

“It’s unique as a consumer to just talk to one company and they will do everything.  The clients and the builders and the designers love that they can do the storage through one company that does an excellent job in all areas,” Duffield says, “My Designers and I are skilled in designing both systems to give the homeowner a seamless experience. The only thing that changes for them is the installation dates and installation processes of the kitchens versus the smaller closets. The coordination and project management of that is really critical.”

Dell Anno Vancouver’s flexibility in sourcing products allows it to offer a range of options to suit various tastes and budgets. Duffield’s pursuit of the perfect manufacturing partners who share her vision of high-end service and quality products ensures that Dell Anno can maintain its standards of excellence and cater to a diverse clientele.

Dell Anno Vancouver, steered by Claudia Duffield, represents a paradigm in the home storage solution industry. Its all-encompassing approach to providing storage solutions for the entire house, coupled with exceptional customer service and efficient project management, sets it apart. Dell Anno Vancouver’s success story serves as a benchmark for businesses in the sector, illustrating the importance of understanding client needs, offering comprehensive solutions, and excelling in customer service and project management.
