Before remodeling our very dark 1960’s kitchen, we met with 7 different kitchen design companies. Friends highly recommended KDM who had done their kitchen and they were the first company we talked to. Maureen had many good ideas and suggestions which was great because we weren’t sure how we wanted the kitchen. The other companies we dismissed immediately because they did not have any good recommendations, ideas or suggestions, and some didn’t even bring any brochures or paperwork.
Maureen made us 3 different 3D computer models of the kitchen, explained what could go where, and after several meetings we selected the one we liked. We received the calendar of the start/end dates and they started and ended exactly on those dates. Maureen assisted me with ordering the sink/faucet, backsplash, drawer pulls, etc. She was a big help!
During the entire job from demolition to installation, Jason was always on time, worked all day, and left only after vacuuming all the dust and debris. If he encountered an issue, he carefully thought it through and gave us options on what could be done. We always decided to do what Jason recommended because that was the best way to do it. He really knows his work, he is an excellent craftsman, and his attention to detail is phenomenal. Ours is a log home, and the front and part of the side of the kitchen are log, so installing more outlets required some thought. We loved Jason’s idea of building out the wall just a few inches (instead of putting outlets in the counter or running a strip). Now I have more outlets than I can use! Jason was always ready to help us with this thing or that thing that we wanted done.
The carpenter, electrician, plumber, painter that Jason used were also very professional and all had a wealth of experience.
We are extremely happy with the job that Maureen and Jason did. From the first time we met them they made us feel like family. We went from an old, very dark kitchen to a beautiful, bright, up-to-date kitchen with 40% more storage. Our friends just love it and can’t believe how bright the room is now.
We highly recommend anyone re-doing their kitchen should call KDM Kitchens. Maureen and Jason are fabulous to work with, care about their customers, are reasonably priced, efficient and timely, and do a great job! We were genuinely extremely impressed with both of them that we can’t say enough good things about them!

KDM Kitchens was wonderful to work with for our kitchen renovation. We don’t think you will find another company that will personally take the time to answer your questions and walk you through the process with as much personal service. Their attention is focused on you. From the beginning, Maureen patiently answered our questions and spent hours helping us talk through our options. She was creative and knowledgeable about how to incorporate what we wanted in our small, traditional kitchen. She wed expert functionality with an elegant and beautiful design that matched the style of the rest of our home. The craftsmanship and professionalism of Jason was first-rate. He was not done with our job until we were satisfied. We can’t recommend KDM Kitchens enough for their expert installation, quality products, functional and creative design and warm and personal service.

I am very happy that we used KDM Kitchens to do our kitchen remodel. I am very pleased with how everything turned out. There was a lot of angst on my part as to how it would look as we had to balance cost and function. Maureen and Jason were more than patient answering questions and working through ideas to ensure that we were happy with the results. They went above and beyond in helping us to achieve a beautiful and much more functional kitchen! Thanks Maureen and Jason!
It was a pleasure to work work with you!

We’d like to say what a pleasure it was having our kitchen remodeled by KDM Kitchens. Maureen and Jason were always professional, courteous and easy to communicate with. They were very knowledgeable and provided good suggestions on design and materials to use. When we requested that the materials used have a limited amount of chemicals/odors which may affect our allergies and sensitivities, Jason was more than willing to research and use these types of products. During the renovation, he was also careful to limit our exposure to dust and allergens. Both Maureen and Jason were organized and on target with the work and payment schedules. We were impressed with the quality of the work that was done by Jason and his subcontractors, and are now extremely happy with our new kitchen. We would highly recommend KDM Kitchens for any remodeling job!

We wanted to thank you for recreating our 20 year old kitchen. The space is lovely and includes our many must haves. Your patience was forever present and your knowledge of design and construction was so accurate. Maureen created several designs and worked for hours helping us to choose the many materials for our kitchen. She was always available to speak with and answer any questions. We were amazed at how Jason communicated with us each day, keeping us up to date on who was coming in and exactly what they were working on. He cleaned up at the end of the day, which was much appreciated.
We couldn’t be happier with our finished kitchen and couldn’t have done it without you!

I just wanted to take a moment and express to you how pleased I am with the kitchen remodel KDM kitchens did for me. Everything went better than I expected. Maureen and Jason gave me all the guidance and support to help make my kitchen both beautiful and affordable. Maureen was great in keeping the lines of communication open and was always pleasant to talk too. Jason was professional, on time, courteous and fun to be around. What more can a customer ask for? The product I bought was high quality and KDM spent the time to help me install it right, the end result is a breath taking kitchen that I am proud of. I am extremely happy with the end result and I will continue to recommend KDM Kitchens to all my friends and family.

We have settled in and adjusted to our new kitchen design and want to let you know how pleased Jan and I with the choices that we made based on yours and Jason’s design and suggestions. In retrospect, we could not have chosen better people to complete this project and investment.
Every step of the way, Jason and yourself were responsive, flexible and true to the schedule that fit our timeline. Having been at home for many of Jason’s work days I can say that his work ethic and quality are something to be admired. I can’t imagine another company, especially the big box operations that could provide the total package of service that you provide at a very competitive cost.
Please feel free to have any prospective customers of yours contact us as testimony to your professionalism.
Thank you both again!

Bob and I wanted to drop you a quick line to thank you for all your help with our kitchen renovation project. Having never done anything like this before, I really felt like a rookie, but never felt stupid when asking questions or discussing my concerns with you. It was very helpful to have the “open items checklist” to keep us on task. I never realized how many tiny details there were to getting a kitchen to look ’finished‘. I also appreciated it when something was communicated to us as being an ‘extra’ and at what cost to us. It helped to keep us on budget and determine our priorities. I’d also like to thank you for offering suggestions and solutions that I’d never have thought of (cookbook cabinet with a door…LOVE IT!!!; moving our microwave so we’d maximize corner cabinet use).
When it came time for the install, Jason was (and still is) so helpful with the cabinets, rollouts and the building of our new closet (which looks so much more gorgeous than our old one). He really had his work cut out making our cabinets fit while working with a house that was built in the 1820’s…quite a challenge there, what with crooked walls and sloping ceilings and floors. He’s quite a perfectionist, both in his measuring (the appliances fit exactly as they were supposed to ) and in his work in general. He would always give us a call to let us know at what time we should expect him, which was very helpful for planning our own schedule. And we’re grateful for that.
Again, thank you for a job well done. I will definitely pass your name along to anyone asking me for a good kitchen design renovation company to work with. It has been a pleasure working with you and Jason.

From the day I met Maureen, I knew she was going to be the one to design my kitchen. I got such a good feeling from her that I never looked anywhere else. One of the most important things Maureen does is ask questions and listen. Her aim is to create the kitchen of your dreams, and a big part of doing that is learning about your lifestyle, how you cook, and what your needs are. She provided several layouts for me to choose from, and once we decided on one, Maureen was with me for each step throughout the project, helping me with colors and patterns. She made everything so easy. When it came to costs, I was never surprised, as Maureen was precise in her calculations of the different facets of my kitchen remodel.
Jason was terrific too. He provided me with a schedule of what was going to happen day by day, and called me each night with an update on how the project was moving along. It was amazing to me how Jason got the electrician, plumber, painter, etc…..to be there exactly when they were scheduled to be. He is also extremely detailed and meticulous, and the installation of the cabinetry was impeccable. My old kitchen was extremely old, not very functional, and not conducive to my family’s way of living. My new kitchen is more than I could have dreamed possible. From the day of demolition to the day of completion, the timing was just shy of five weeks! The kitchen went from a room we never liked to be in to one we now congregate in and never want to leave!

From the first consultation to the finishing touch, it has been an absolute pleasure to work with KDM Kitchens. The whole process went more smoothly than I thought possible. They created a schedule that kept the project moving forward while minimizing any inconveniences. Maureen was friendly, patient, and thorough with every aspect of the project and helped us to stay within our budget. Jason was extremely organized, knowledgeable, and pleasant to be around. He always kept us informed of any changes and checked in with us about the progress each day. KDM Kitchens exceeded our expectations, and their attention to detail provided us with the beautiful kitchen we always wanted.

KDM Kitchens recently remodeled our entire kitchen. It was a smooth process working with Maureen and Jason! We utilized KDM in a Project Management capacity…from design to installation, including: demolition, carpentry, electrical, tile flooring, granite counters, plumbing, painters, etc. From what Jason did not tackle himself, we were very pleased with all of KDM’s subcontractors.
We found KDM’s schedule to be accurate, and both Jason and Maureen were great at communicating any changes and/or adjustments to the schedule. Both Jason and Maureen take pride in their work, and company! I recommend KDM to anyone who is considering remodeling their kitchen…they will make it an enjoyable process — with a beautiful end result!

We would like to personally thank Maureen for all the help and services she gave to us. Maureen took what we were looking for and put together a beautiful design for our kitchens and dining room area. She took the time to come out and personally know what we were looking for and made several different options of which way we could go with the layout of the rooms. We were also shown different alternatives with not only her product but she also directed us to other vendors in which she recommended (countertops, etc.) Maureen showed us different types of cabinets and styles and made no pressure for us in picking out what would fit our budget. She made this project go very smoothly in coordinating the delivery and installation with our contractor. We knew we had made a good choice after seeing Maureen come out personally for the delivery and also helped unload the cabinets just to make sure nothing came in damaged. We will continue to recommend KDM for the quality and the special services they gave us.
