Here are pics of our finished kitchen island. We are very pleased with the great design and the exceptional quality of the cabinets and quartz countertop. Your contractor recommendation was a very good one, all work was done to our satisfaction and in a timely manner.

20 years ago when we re-did our kitchen we were forced to keep a chimney buried in the wall, in the center of the kitchen. Several years ago we put a new roof on, removing the top part of the chimney, but leaving the lower part. Finally, we were ready to remove the chimney, and replace the countertops with granite. As do it ourselves we thought an easy project. We wanted to keep the natural maple cabinets and match new ones in the 60+ inches of space we created. We started with two well-known kitchen centers. One would not consider working with us, project was too small for him, and the 2nd wanted $21-24,000 just to install the cabinets and granite, no demolition included. On our way home we noticed Kitchen Direct on Mink Street in Seekonk, MA. What a lucky stop for us!
Peter Curti, owner was an amazing help to us! Our business to him was “small potato’s” but you would not know that by the level of customer service we received. First, he spent time understanding out plan, recommended a cabinet combination we loved. He also spent a lot of time working with us to find doors and drawers that would match the best with the older cabinets we had. We began the demolition and found that our original plans would not work because the chimney hid the fact that the supporting beam did not allow us to remove the wall. I called Peter, put a hold on the cabinets and then he worked with us to revamp the plans to fit the new space, (now 4-5 inches smaller). Peter also helped us to find the perfect under-mount sink that would replace the very large sink we had, and fit well with the old cabinet, also ordering a grill for it. When I asked for a recommendation for a faucet, he recommended the one I had already zeroed in on, including a link to a website to get the best price, he even offered to order it for me. Peter let us know exactly when our cabinets would be delivered. When the delivery was later than expect and he knew we had an installer coming the next morning Peter personally brought them to our house, carrying them himself!
When it came to choosing the granite he showed us several options, none of which wowed us. He then pulled out this one piece that he said we might like, and boy did we. But we balked at the price. Peter sent us to another granite supplier to see if we could find something else. But we were sold on the original piece. We settled on that granite, opted to eliminate the backsplash, (not for price, but per our new design with bead-board), and the price worked out great.
So, I guess my story is, remodeling is tough, even small ones, but having a company like Kitchen Direct and Peter Curti walking us through each step sure made it worth the effort. I would have to say I can’t ever remember receiving better customer service, and all within our budget! Our kitchen surpasses our wildest dreams!
Scott Curti of Kitchens Direct, Inc. was a pleasure to work with on my client’s project. He was professional, got quotes and product options to me in a timely manner, and kept me informed regarding timelines and scheduling of templates and installation. The Hanstone quartz kitchen counter top is beautiful, my client loves it, and I highly recommend Scott and Kitchens Direct, Inc.

We found this company to be very professional and knowledgeable about kitchen design. They helped us select cabinets that met our requirements and they consistently met deadlines. They apprised us of the costs throughout the design process. The contractor they recommended did an outstanding job, stayed on schedule and was very easy to communicate with.
Kitchens Direct helped us through our first ever kitchen remodel. Scott C. and the team at Kitchens Direct helped us in every manner. They got to know what we liked and disliked, and helped narrow the selections of cabinets and counters to a manageable number of choices given our budget. Scott redesigned our galley kitchen that maximized storage and functionality. Since we had the reality of three children – durability in materials were always present in the conversation. I would urge anyone to go with Kitchens Direct.
Thank you again so much for such a wonderful design job. your insightful advice was all well taken and then proves most successful! thanks also for your excellent follow through on all those important smaller details!

Dear Sharon & Crew
Just wanted to say thank you!! For such a terrific job. You make a dream kitchen come to life! Your knowledge and expertise were invaluable as well as your suggestion of people- namely Steve (Moro) – Who also came with a great crew.
We discovered that remodeling a kitchen is a lot of work, but you make it all that much easier. It truly did all just “come together” for us in the end with very little discreption and inconvenience.
If you would ever like a referral from us, do not hesitate to call as we have nothing but a glowing report.
Thanks so much!
Ellen & Matt
I just wanted to make sure you knew how pleased we are without kitchen and, especially, with you and Kitchens Direct. Everything from your end went like clockwork. Every meeting, deliverable, product delivery, installation, was on time. The quality of the product was above expectation. Our Builder couldn’t believe that these cabinets were your middle range! The Silestone people were excellent and their part of the installation flawless.
Of course, none of this would have happened without your help and direction. You are a pleasure to work with. Your style is excellent. You have a great way of voicing your opinions and design concerns/consideration while still listening closely to your client and, when appropriate, being creative to figure out how to implement something that the client just “must have.” And, I appreciate how you have gone above and beyond many times to both accommodate my crazy schedule and deal with the intricacies of getting stuff to Block Island.
Also, if you ever want to show off the BI kitchen, we would be happy to coordinate that as well!
Thank you so much!
Karen & Butch
