A young professional purchased a 40th floor condo with a stunning view of the lake shore.  The tiny galley kitchen was dated and poorly designed.  Limited counter space and few cabinets, made this a difficult and uncomfortable place to cook and entertain. 

The age and the construction of the building made redesign very challenging.  With patience and determination, we overcame each obstacle and created the perfect space for this client’s needs and lifestyle. 

The new kitchen is open to the living space and shares its spectacular views.  A large island dramatically expanded the cooking area, houses several appliances, adds lots of storage, and serves as the main eating area.  The newly designed kitchen is the center piece of this lovely condo.

These contractors are experienced, professional, and efficient.
I did a kitchen remodel, plus added a pocket door closet in my front entrance. The whole project took about 5 weeks, starting with the demo. It took me over a year to actually sign the contract due to my crazy schedule, but they were patient with me.
I wanted to knock down a wall for an open floor plan with a peninsula counter, and Marc and Joe helped me figure out a solution for moving the refrigerator that I couldn’t imagine on my own. I loved being able to see their 3D renderings of the proposed designs, especially since I kept modifying my plan.
Petar, the contractor was excellent, friendly, and able to accommodate my specific requests to make sure I was satisfied. He exchanged a  specific dimmer switch that accommodated what I wanted. Randomly, my toilet handle broke while he was here, and even though it was probably bound to happen to anyone, he went out and bought a new handle and fixed that too (above and beyond)!  I wanted to resell my old cabinet set since it was still in very good condition, and they (kudos to Jose, the cabinet guy) removed them from my kitchen and put them aside without damaging anything.
They will tell you if you are making a mistake in any of your decisions. For instance I was planning on having a shorter counter overhang than what they proposed. They were very insistent that it should be at least 18″ and I figured that 12″ would be plenty. Well, I’m happy with what I finally decided, but a couple extra inches might have been better, to Marc’s credit, …so, make sure it’s at least 14″ in the center! 😀
I would recommend Masters Kitchen and Bath to anyone.
Just something to keep in mind: They are a one-stop shop and have a decent selection of cabinets, counters, tiles, and hardware. You can select items from an outside source, if there is something else you prefer, but you should at least expect to get the cabinets and counters from them to make this all worthwhile.”
