Designs from paradise…


Husband and wife team, Erik Nissen and Pia Sorensen, established Nissen Quality Cabinetmakers in 1985. Their business is based on skilled workmanship and unique design ideas. Over the years, their commitment to quality has lead Nissen to multiple Housing Industry Association (HIA) awards for excellence.

Originally from Denmark, the couple relocated to Australia in 1978 and made Mackay their home. They now operate from a 36-acre rainforest property at Mount Mandurana, ‘The Leap’, 15 minutes drive North of Mackay. Their son, Scott Nissen, is now a part of the business.

As many people don’t know what they want, Nissen offers a wide range of design solutions, a well-equipped showroom and has an impressive portfolio of previous work. A 3D CAD program is also used to help clients visualise their final design and colour choices. Pia and Erik keep up-to-date with innovations and new trends at major design exhibitions across Australia and regularly visit Europe to keep ahead of the trends. Their European background influences their work, particularly the sleek Scandinavian styles.

The team at Nissen strives hard to ensure that you get the most out of your investment. Erik, Pia and Scott personally take care of all the projects from start to finish, to ensure you are completely satisfied with your new space. By combining quality workmanship, up-to-date renovation trends and low prices, Nissen can provide you with services that are unmatched by their competitors.
