Gracious suburban home with updated finishes throughout, still had the original “builder kitchen”.  Starting with the layout, the kitchen felt cramped and was awkward to use.  Despite the open floor with the family room, the space was closed off and, viewed from the family room, the refrigerator was the focal point!  Dated Oak cabinets and dark countertops, were not in keeping with the rest of the home.

We completely reinvented the layout creating a spectacular vignette for the range and hood opposite the family room fireplace.  The peninsula was lowered and the odd angle wall at the end was removed.  The space feels open and inviting with rich Maple stained cabinets and crown moldings.  Elegant quartz countertops, backsplash tile and enhanced lighting elevated this kitchen to its rightful place at the center of this home.

“How do I start to explain how incredibly happy I am with my new kitchen? Let me try…. I worked with Marc and his team to remodel / overhaul my cookie-cutter “builder’s kitchen”. Marc was extremely patient with me during the physical design phase where decisions were being made to relocate appliances (requiring plumbing, electric and gas moves) and knock down walls. I travel for business on a frequent basis; however, Master’s always took the time to meet with me and I never felt rushed when making my selections. In fact, the original ensemble selected (cabinets, counter tops, flooring, backsplash, etc.) ultimately ended up changing after bringing home the samples to see them in my space. I actually ended up going in a completely different direction. This didn’t phase them a bit! In fact, the design team was happy to accommodate the many hours spent making my second selection! Master’s provided a realistic – and accurate – timeline from demolition to installation. Alin, who was my assigned MASTER, is nothing but extraordinary. He was punctual, extremely clean and a true professional. His workmanship has been scrutinized by many friends and family members who claim to be “in the business” and they couldn’t find a single flaw in his workmanship. Now that is saying something! My remodel included: complete demolition; relocation of plumbing, electrical, gas and HVAC vents; install drywall; painting; install ceramic tile floor; install cabinets; install quartz countertops; install plumbing fixtures; install over/under cabinet lighting; install pendant lighting; relocation of can ceiling lights; creation of “niche” over stove area; etc. Every time I walk though my new kitchen, I am amazed at how well everything came together. I feel like I live in a magazine! I needed a company that I could trust to execute the project from beginning to end without having to deal with coordinating multiple contractors or vendors. Master’s does things right! Would I recommend Master’s? Yes, one-thousand times over! Don’t go anywhere else if you’re looking to remodel your kitchen, bath or other area in your home. I promise you will be just as happy (more like ecstatic) as I am with the outcome of my new kitchen. Thank you Master’s! Thank you Marc! And a special THANK YOU to Alin!”

“We chose Masters Kitchen & Bath after a good friend raved about their work. Their price was in line with the 2 other estimates we got. Everything went smoothly. Marc came to the condo, took pictures and listened to what we wanted to do. Joe then designed the kitchen and we were able to tweak things based on his 3-D computer picture. He spent a lot of time with us helping us pick out everything from the cabinets to the color of the tile grout. The work crew were the people who turned the beautiful drawing into a gorgeous reality. The men who worked on our project are complete professionals who have an extraordinary eye for detail and made small changes that improved the look of the finished project. We would hire them again in a heartbeat.”
