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!

Mindy and Roland- Cheshire


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!

Kristin & Jason — Southington, CT


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.

Robin & John — Cheshire, CT


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!

Peter & Helen — Cheshire, CT


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.

Jerry & Doreen — Wallingford, CT

Dear Maureen and Jason,
We wanted to thank you so very much for finishing our kitchen. After such a negative experience with another contractor, it was nice to work with you both. You always made sure to follow-up with us and check in on the work. Your attention to detail was amazing and very much appreciated. We greatly appreciate that you both helped to meet our deadline. Our son’s first birthday party was lots of fun and everyone loved the kitchen. We highly recommend you both.

Rachel, Larry & Evan — Cheshire, CT


If you want a beautiful kitchen, I would highly recommend stopping by KDM Kitchens. Both Maureen and Jason are knowledgeable, hard working, trustworthy and pleasant. The first step is making a design and Maureen knows all the right questions to ask. When the installation is ready to begin, Jason is always available and if challenges do arise, he was always able to find an alternative to the problem and the end result is a beautiful kitchen.

Ken and Krista L. — Middletown, CT


I am extremely pleased with the remodeling of my kitchen. The help, time, energy, and effort from Maureen to help redesign and manage the time needed to do the work was well done. Maureen and Jason are conscientious workers. Jason was always on time, worked with perfection, and handled any minor problems effortlessly. I would highly recommend KDM Kitchens to anyone looking for a job well done, a beautiful new kitchen, and that personal touch from Maureen and Jason that shows they care.

Betsy H. — Wallingford, CT


This past summer I remodeled my kitchen and bath with KDM Kitchens. Maureen walked me through the design process and together we changed both rooms into spectacular living spaces. The quality of the cabinets and workmanship surpassed my expectations. Thanks to KDM this project was a great experience and provides me with a home I enjoy every day.

Derek O. — New Britain, CT


We recently had our 24 year old kitchen redesigned and completely remodeled by KDM Kitchens. We are extremely pleased with the new layout of our kitchen, the quality of materials and workmanship, and the entire construction process. Maureen was very thorough and helpful with the design. She took the time to explore various options while being attentive to our lifestyle and preferences. Maureen has an eye for design and was a delight to work with. From the start, Jason addressed the scheduling of contractors and kept things going incredibly smooth for such a large-scale project! He is a very meticulous worker who pays attention to the tiniest detail. His workmanship is of the upmost quality. Not only was Jason attentive to our needs, but he arrived every morning with a bright smile and a cheery greeting. He worked tirelessly to make sure the kitchen was put together perfectly and it was!!! We highly recommend KDM Kitchens for redesigning your kitchen and completing the project in a timely and professional manner.

Frank & Lucy P. — Middlefield, CT


Of all the decisions we had to make when it came to remodeling our kitchen, our smartest decision was hiring KDM Kitchens.  From the first time we met Maureen until the job was complete, they made the entire process easier and less stressful than we thought possible.  Maureen very patiently navigated us through the daunting task of designing the layout and choosing materials, offering along the way countless great suggestions that we never would have thought of and which have made our kitchen both stylish and extremely user-friendly.  She also connected us with her network of outstanding vendors for materials such as tile and countertops, and each of them spent considerable time with us to make sure we we 100% satisfied with our choices.

Of course, the best design team in the world would be of little value without top-quality contractors to do the work, and once again, KDM came through with the best.  Jason is a true master craftsman, and his attention to detail and insistence on getting things 100% right make him without question the best contractor we’ve ever had perform work in our house.  He also is the possibly the world’s best problem-solver, and whenever unexpected issues came up (as they always do in such a big job), he always came up with practical solutions.  In addition to the quality work he performed, Jason masterfully oversaw all aspects of the work performed by the subcontractors and kept us updated on a daily basis as to the progress of the work and what would be happening next.  Anytime we had an issue, question or concern, we could email or call Jason, and he typically responded immediately, even on weekends.  He also is an extremely friendly, outgoing person who was a pleasure to have in our house everyday for almost 2 months.  Jason and Maureen also know how disruptive a kitchen remodeling job can be on a family with children, and throughout the job, they did everything in their power to minimize the disruption, including setting up a “mini-kitchen” for us in our dining room.

We give KDM Kitchens our highest praise.  If we were to remodel our kitchen again, we would hire them again without question, but they did such a good job the first time — and we are so happy with the result — that it is unlikely we will be remodeling our kitchen again for a long, long time.

After living with our dysfunctional kitchen for years, we finally decided to bite the bullet and remodel.  I’m an HGTV addict, and having watched too many episodes of Holmes on Homes, I was really worried about finding the right contractor. So we talked to Maureen at length several times and checked references, before settling on KDM. We’re so glad we chose them! Jason and Maureen are both wonderful to work with. Maureen put up with months of my indecision and layout concerns, working with us until we came up with the right layout. Once construction started, Jason was on top of the schedule, coordinating all the sub-contractors (who were also courteous and efficient), letting us know what was coming next in the remodel, and getting the work completed within the promised time frame. He also does beautiful finish work. We had some additional challenges with our house, including a sagging floor and questionable wiring (from a previous remodel before we owned the house). All of it was fixed and brought up to code without impact to the schedule. The end result is a gorgeous new kitchen that was completed on time, and on budget. We highly recommend KDM Kitchens—you’ll love the results!

Jane and Donato—Cheshire, CT


KDM Kitchens  was a pleasure to work with. Both Maureen and Jason were very helpful, available and responsible. My kitchen looks great! Jason and his crew did a wonderful job and were very responsible in handling all of the details . It was a very positive and satisfying experience  working with KDM Kitchens.

Dorothy—Cheshire, CT


We are thrilled with our new bathroom!  Maureen and Jason are a great team.  From start to finish the project was as smooth and trouble free as they could make it.  They provided clear direction and really worked with us to make the room a reality.  They provided guidance every step of the way and provided a great customer service experience.  The work was professional and well executed and Jason provided solid explanations for all the steps in the renovation.  He also sought our input as the work progressed to make sure the small details reflected our vision.  The quality of renovation was outstanding, but the customer service is why we will use KDM for my next renovation project.  We have had past experience with other contractors where the finished product was as promised but the process was extremely frustrating and stressful.  Small details like introducing subcontractors as they are brought into the job and providing a clear timeline with updates as things change are the reason we intend to use them to update our kitchen.


Derek & Elana—Cheshire, CT


KDM kitchens has fully exceeded all expectations during each phase of our kitchen renovation. From detailed planning meetings to lengthy discussions pertaining to cabinet colors and quality, their knowledge and strong reputation in this competitive business market, allowed us to feel comfortable and 100% certain that hiring KDM Kitchens was the right decision.

What sets KDM kitchens apart from its competitors is their superb customer service that goes well beyond the standard. From phone calls to emails and texts in between, KDM Kitchens was there for us each step of the way. In addition, while KDM kitchens specializes in kitchen cabinetry, their natural sense of style as it pertains to flooring, backsplash, hardware and lighting allowed us to truly have the kitchen of our dreams. They were able to tie everything together, showcasing a kitchen that looks as if it was “built over time,” rather than in just a few short weeks.

Decisions, decisions and more decisions can make any family stressed out. However, with KDM Kitchens, our stress and worry was kept very low. We felt they were our partners and truly cared about their final product, which is a kitchen our family will grow and live in for decades to come.

Mike and Melissa—Wethersfield, CT


We had our kitchen and 2 1/2 baths remodeled by KDM recently, and we want to say how very pleased we are with the company. Having Maureen as the designer and Jason as the contractor was the perfect solution to getting the remodeling done from start to finish.

We met with Maureen numerous times to get the design of the kitchen layout exactly as we envisioned. She is very friendly, thoughtful, pleasant and attentive. Her best attribute is that she really listens to what the client wants and implements them into her design. We asked for lots of storage and counter space and she designed cabinets for every inch of our kitchen space, even above our windows, which we love!  Her willingness to make changes as many times as necessary was greatly appreciated, since I thought of something new to add almost every week. Any changes were met with patience and understanding and a “can do” attitude.

The decision of purchasing everything for a new kitchen and multiple baths seemed overwhelming, but Maureen gave us an “open item list” which was a very helpful tool in making our selections in manageable chunks.

Also, the interior design service they provided gave us much needed help in selecting tile and paint colors.

When it came time for construction, we were given a detailed calendar with the schedule for all the work.  Jason met me every morning with the plans for the day, which subcontractor was expected, and a cheery disposition. Jason is a very skilled, polite, conscientious person who seems to enjoy his work.

We’ve had to call Jason a few times since our renovations were completed, and he has always responded and fixed the problems quickly.

Thank you Maureen and Jason for our beautiful kitchen and baths!”
