Our expertise speaks through the details of the beautiful kitchens we’ve designed, as well as the clients who inspired those kitchens. Here are a few of their stories:
After our renovation with the Kitchen Specialist, we spend more time in the kitchen than anywhere in the house. We couldn’t be happier with the result. Mary Kate walked us through every stage of the process, drafting a functional design that worked for our busy family and our budget and helping us select cabinets, tile, paint, counter tops, and more that all worked together and matched our personal style. I felt more comfortable making bold design choices with Mary Kate there to guide us, and the result is phenomenal. I know that we will be back with our next project!

Mary has an amazing eye for design, detail, and function. She has the incomparable ability to create a space that adapts to the individual cooking and entertaining styles of the family. I think that what sets Mary and The Kitchen Specialist apart is their attention to every step of the process. They atttend not only to the project at hand, but to the client’s concerns and ultimate satisfaction.

My husband and I found the concept of a full kitchen renovation daunting, but Mary Kate Bedell and the staff at The Kitchen Specialist turned an overwhelming project into an ongoing pleasure. From initial conversations when Mary Kate helped us define our needs through the design process, choosing materials, shopping for the right accessories, and troubleshooting minor issues during the construction phase, we felt we had the full attention and support of an expert team. The end result is a stunning kitchen we love and a trusted relationship with a firm of true kitchen specialists. And we had a ball doing it!

I spent ten years cataloging everything that I didn’t like about my kitchen, but I just could not figure out how to turn it into what I wanted. In one hour, Mary saw the key change that would make it work. She listened and she heard what I wanted — light, warmth, flow, efficiency, and space — and she made it happen. Even more, she made it MY kitchen in MY style — not her vision imposed on my world. In addition to her superb eye for design, she brought a wealth of practical experience, making great suggestions for everything from appliances to cabinets to drawer inserts. She was there at every step of the demolition and building process. It was not just painless to re-model my kitchen: it was FUN! When I hear other people moan about how awful their renovations were, I can only sit back and keep quiet. Here I am two years out, my sanity preserved and loving my kitchen as much as I did the first day! All I can say is “Thanks, Mary!”
