"We have been so pleased to work with Classic Kitchens. We finished two projects together - a complete new home located out of the country, which provided real challenges, and a condo remodel, with its space limitations. Your professionalism, innovation, and cheerful cooperation have produced a truly magnificent partnership and allowed us to accomplish our design goals. We have been so impressed with Classic Kitchens that we will soon be working on our third home remodel with you."
"Thank you for doing a wonderful job on our kitchen remodel. We have had many compliments from friends and family. You have been very patient and understood how meticulous and detailed-oriented we are. We never felt pressured on anything, which we really appreciated. Because you did such a great job on our kitchen, there was never any doubt about who we wanted to design our living room."
"We couldn't be happier with this contractor! We used Classic Kitchens for a kitchen and master bath reno in our 1920s home. The job was particularly challenging due to the age and unique construction of our house.We had a number of constraints on space and the placement of mechanicals. We spent about four months working with a different, local cabinet maker trying to find creative solutions for our kitchen. When he continued to stall and talk about the challenges and problems with the job, we decided to explore other options. We wondered into Classic Kitchens on a Saturday morning, and thank goodness we did! With a very quick turn around, Classic Kitchens found solutions not problems! We worked with Lisa, in a very collaborative effort, to achieve an outstanding result. Lisa is knowledgeable, creative, prompt,responsive and fun. She gives great input and direction while allowing the client to incorporate their vision and ideas. They were also very conscious of our budget and went above and beyond to help us save where possible using their Brookhaven cabinet line to its fullest potential. The cabinets themselves are great -- very solid, functional and fluid with a beautiful finish. We will definitely use Classic Kitchens again and recommend these wonderful women to everyone we know. We absolutely love the end result. Thanks ladies!"
"I was so excited to walk through the showroom doors at Classic Kitchen Design Studio, instantly I knew I was in the right place and in the right hands. Esther and the design dream team helped me with our artist retreat kitchen design. I wanted a modern, open floor plan concept with a variety of great textures and color. All of the options available through Wood-mode and Brookhaven literally blew my mind. The final result is a showpiece gathering spot in our new space. Thank you Classic Kitchens KC!"
