We hired Kitchens By Julie, Inc. for a long overdue kitchen and laundry room remodel. We are very happy with our new kitchen and laundry room. Julie's design was implemented by her husband Mark, whose craftsmanship and aim for perfection shines throughout. I love how the kitchen looks and functions. Julie and Mark are the "best!"

I've worked photographing Julie's kitchen designs for over 20 years. Julie should change her name to "Julie WOW!" cause every time I see her work, that's what I say! She is the consummate professional in everything she does. Her attention to design detail is outstanding. Julie is definitely at the pinnacle of the kitchen design field.

Julie was very helpful in assisting me with my kitchen project. I felt she listened to my ideas and then complimented them with her input which I found invaluable!! She is extremely familiar with what is available and the artistic recommendations she provided me certainly made my kitchen feel like it was "one of a kind and unique" for what I needed. I would recommend her without hesitation. Mark and the crew completed my work to perfection and I am certainly enjoying my new space everyday!! The compliments I have received truly recognize I made the right choice with the decision to contract with Kitchens By Julie!

"Lots of people say they can remodel kitchens, but you gave us the one of our dreams. Thanks for finding a way to make us both happy."

"After my husband's accident, we were in need of major changes to our home; most especially to our bathroom. Mark and Julie Loehner from Kitchens by Julie took on this project with selfless giving of their time and talent. Every detail was considered and the work was done within a very tight deadline. We were overwhelmed at the beauty and functionality of our new bathroom. Julie and Mark were very knowledgeable about the disability issues that my husband was facing (even the occupational therapists we were dealing with at rehab couldn't believe how much had been done in our bathroom). We continue to be extremely grateful to Mark and Julie for the help they gave us unselfishly during a very difficult time in our lives."

"Our new kitchen is absolutely beautiful and very efficient. We considered the time relatively short from start of design to project completion, and the schedule we were given was met precisely. The design used the latest in fresh new items, but are timeless and fit the transitional style and color scheme of our home for a pleasing and smooth flow throughout our living area and kitchen. Julie picked out every item for style, color, space utilization and funtionality, and truly set our kitchen apart from any other luxury kitchen that we have seen. Her professional experience for detail was extremely valuable, that we didn't fully appreciate in the beginning, but we certainly do now that we are using the kitchen. Some of these include light placement, use of drawers instead of lower cabinets, all drawers and doors using soft self closers, putting in a two drawer dishwasher, placing a special glass front cupboard, installing an awesome faux finished range hood, and including a terrific new finish for the granite on the bar. After Julie visited our home, she put together a design and display of material samples for our review. We did not change anything. Then she and her installer, (husband Mark) gave us a schedule and cost. Mark installed all of the items with awesome precision. The crown moldings and integrated panels on the refrigerator and dishwasher drawers look absolutely perfect. He kept the work areas very clean and protected all other areas. The few other trades people they used were also very skilled. KITCHENS BY JULIE, INC, conducted the entire project with excellent professionalism, and we would highly recommend them."

It is almost a year later and we are still in love with our beautiful kitchen! It was an absolute pleasure working with you during the planning and design process. You took the time to get to know our family, discussed what you felt would work best for us functionally along with the design that would fit our style. You clearly communicated the entire job, from start to finish - we always knew what to expect on a daily basis, which was especially important to us with our work, travel and children's activity schedules.

And then there was Mark whose craftsmanship, attention to detail and cleanliness continued to impress us on a daily basis. It is doubtful that many people can say that ripping out an entire kitchen and replacing it with a new and current one was a pleasurable experience, but we can truly say that it was. Your design and work on the kitchen impressed us so much that we decided to have you take care of our powder room too, which was not in the original plan! We receive so many compliments on both rooms and continue to sing your praises. Thank you for making our kitchen especially, the true heart of our home.

When my husband and I decided to begin the long overdue but daunting task of renovating our kitchen, we were excited but also filled with trepidation. After we had spent weeks flipping through kitchen design magazines and searching the net for ideas, my husband came upon the Kitchens By Julie website. A look at her dazzling gallery of "Before and After" photos encouraged me to pay her showroom a visit. I walked in with my head spinning and within minutes Julie had put me at ease about the project. I knew that our search was over. At every stage in the process of building our dream kitchen, Julie and Mark impressed us with their professionalism, their creativity, and their attention to every detail.

Julie's design incorporated fresh new ideas for our existing kitchen and eating area while keeping in mind our individual tastes and the overall style of our house. The result is a kitchen that is truly made for us. We love the warm nutmeg tone of the cherry cabinets; the elegant design of the new table, chairs, and barstools (which echoes the crown molding); the dramatic feature hood which Julie herself faux finished in a rich copper color; the creamy stone tile backsplash; the contrasting granite colors for the perimeter cabinets and the island; the lovely porcelain tile that replaced our old and dingy ceramic floor (a last minute decision that we don't regret one bit!). We now have more cabinet and work space than we ever thought possible. And while our kitchen is more than up-to-date with the latest in materials, I feel that it is classic, not merely trendy. We can't overstate how thrilled we are with Julie's exquisite design and Mark's impeccable workmanship as he painted the walls and ceiling, installed the cabinets, and tiled the backsplash. It was a pleasure to work with them and the other highly professional workers that they brought in to do the drywall, electrical work and floor installation. What a great experience!

Julie is very creative and thoughtful and puts a lot of time and consideration into her designs. She is very up to date on all the newest components that can work in your kitchen. Mark and Julie pay very close attention to detail. Tjey keep the homeowner informed and involved with all the elements of your kitchen. You can rest assured that when it's completed your kitchen will be beautiful as well as functional. Your kitchen will be timeless. What is done today will still be beautiful 20 years from now.
