About Better Than New

Better Than New Fine Furniture Repair is a full-service refinish and custom furniture repair shop based in Tempe, Arizona. Established in 1998 by Dan Oldejans, the company began with a few hundred dollars, a briefcase, and a couple of hand tools in a small apartment in Scottsdale. Since then, Better Than New has grown into a reputable company with a client list that includes top retailers like Ethan Allen, Ralph Lauren, Robb & Stucky, Baker Furniture, and Copenhagen Imports, as well as renowned designers across the country.

What sets Better Than New apart from other furniture restoration companies is their strong arts background and unique approach. Owner Dan Oldejans received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Studio Art from Arizona State University, giving the company an innovative edge outside of the typical restoration industry. They use a vast network of professionals to find new and creative techniques to achieve their unsurpassed results.

At Better Than New, they believe in quality service from the first phone call to the final inspection and pride themselves on taking on the challenges of a project and finding creative, efficient solutions. Their attention to detail is present throughout the project, from start to finish.

In 2009, Better Than New starred in a full season of HGTV’s “Beyond Repair” and received national news coverage. For over 25 years, the excitement of working with clients on a variety of projects has given them the drive to be the best company they can be and to provide their clients with a positive, honest, and refreshing experience.

In addition to their furniture restoration services, Dan expanded Better Than New’s offerings by creating Better Than New Kitchens, a kitchen refacing business. With over 25 years of experience in the furniture restoration industry, Dan saw an opportunity to help homeowners transform their kitchens without the need for a full remodel. Better Than New Kitchens provides customers with a cost-effective solution to update their homes. With Better Than New Kitchens, customers can expect the same level of expertise and commitment to excellence that has made Better Than New Fine Furniture Repair a trusted name in the industry.
