I wanted to drop you both a line to give my sincere appreciation and express my satisfaction for the job that was done with our kitchen. The work was amazing and it was a real pleasure having Brad do the job, he is both professional as well as very pleasant.

I’m knew I would be hesitate to turn my house over to someone I didn’t know to be alone during the process and that feeling left me about five minutes after I met Brad. He is outstanding.

Again, thank you and please pass my sincere thanks to Jarrod for all the attention and his professional planning. As I said, the kitchen looks better and is more functional than I ever imagined.

You designed an amazing kitchen. Thank you so much for all you have done for us. It was a pleasure working with you. Thank you to your wife as well. She was a great help in designing our kitchen.
Sincerely, Kelly and Miriam Kilroy

We love our new kitchen! You guys are all wonderful! Jarrod, Brad, Mike, Miles.....great job! We would recommend you anytime!

It has been a few months since we had our new kitchen installed and I couldn't be happier with it. The cherry cabinets are beautiful and the molding that Mike so expertly cut gives them a wonderful finishing touch. The work was done expertly and carefully and everyone at KBD was friendly and easy to work with. Bruce helped us a great deal with the design; we thought that we knew what we wanted when we came in, but he made some suggestions that improved our plan. The work was done in a timely manner with less mess than I envisioned. I would definitely recommend KBD to anyone seeking kitchen remodeling.

We just want to let you all know how pleased we are with the work you did in our house. But it was not only the quality of the actual work. Excellent customer service started with the two meetings we had with Bruce Wise and his patience in answering our questions then, and in answering our phone calls prior to the work start. On work days Mike, who did the bulk of the work, was very through, his work high quality, and his attention to detail second to none. We will definitely recommend your company to our friends. Thanks again.
Felxi and Lori Castro

Thank you for the excellent work on our new kitchen and bathrooms.  Your craftmanship and attention to detail are to be commended.  The results are beautiful and we will enjoy our remodeled rooms for years to come. Thanks again, Mike!  We really appreciate all your efforts.

Dear Miles and Cathy Johnson,
We wanted to personally thank you for the beautiful job recently completed on our kitchen remodeling.  We were most pleased with the excellent services we received from Bruce when first planning out our kitchen cabinets and accessories.  It is becuase of Bruce's professional bedside manner and color recommendations as to why we chose Kitchens by Design.

When it came time to install our cabinets we were overwhelmed with the skills and craftsmanship of Ben.  He was honest, reliable and did an awesome job installing our cabinets, drawers and lighting.  He is truly an expert in his field.  In today's world of scam and cheating the customer we were blessed with finding two of the best men in the business. We hope you realize how valuable they are to your company.

We have and will continue to recommend Kitchens by Design to our friends and neighbors.  Again thank you for your services.
Sincerely, Bob and Judy Gobble

Dear Mr. & Mrs. Johnson:
I am pleased to write you this letter. My husband and I had our kitchen remodeled by Bruce Wise in March. Bruce did a fabulous job and we are really pleased with the results. We have had several dinner parties and a graduation party since the job was completed on April 1, and we have been bombarded with compliments on how beautiful the kitchen looks.

We appreciate all the planning and work and attention to detail that Bruce gave us. The suggestions he made were excellent and the kitchen is truly a work of art. Many thanks to Bruce and to your company.
Regards, Myra Minch
