Kitchen Encounters is taking successful kitchen and bath remodeling to new heights. Owner Dave White’s approach is honest, responsible, and convenient. Positioned as a design/build company, their commitment to customers is great. “The advantage of to the consumer, is that we’re taking them through the entire process from beginning to end. We’re helping create a design, make product selections, color choices, managing the project, and carrying out the actual construction process,” he says. Homeowners don’t have a lot of time to waste, and Kitchen Encounters values your time and your trust. In fact, Dave has built his entire business model around that. “We make it convenient for them. Typically, in 5 to 6 weeks we will have your remodel finished. One person is accountable, rather than being shuffled around to multiple showrooms and people, and it improves the process for them and ensures a more seamless construction model.”

While business has been steadily busy, Dave tells me that kitchen remodels are very popular right now. Whether you’re looking to update outdated fixtures, adjust the Feature By Nicole Patterson layout and the functionality of your kitchen, or install cabinets or other space-enhancing accoutrements, Kitchen Encounters will handle the project with a very focused plan. He rightly points out that the way people function and use the kitchen nowadays is a lot different than thirty years ago. “Those kitchens weren’t designed with entertaining in mind, or with the kitchen being the hub of the home.” When it comes to kitchen remodels, it’s all about the layout and the function of how you spend your life and time. “The fact that we schedule our jobs and give that schedule to our homeowners in every case, I think says a lot about our process. They can track progress and see what’s going on every day. It helps to build confidence as the project progresses,” he says.

That same confidence and reliability is what has made Kitchen Encounter’s reputation so good. Dave works with a team of trained professions whom he has used almost since the day he began his business. “I started out as a finish carpenter, cabinet installer and cabinetmaker. I have the advantage of getting an education from the ground up and through the years I’ve gotten highly involved in design and project management,” he says. He also mentions that along with bathroom remodels, Kitchen Encounters acts as a general contractor for lots of different projects—from basement remodels to decks and additions.

“The holistic approach we have toward remodeling is especially appealing for people who have busy lives. It’s a more palatable process to go through,” Dave says.

Although most work is done directly with homeowners, Kitchen Encounters also works with architects and other contractors to get you living in and enjoying your home. Everything from designing the floor plan right down to the selection of the sink and faucet fixtures—all the details are in good hands.

Call and schedule a free design consultation. After coming to your home and talking about what goals you want to accomplish, Dave will give you ideas and helpful suggestions, and talk to you about your budget, take measurements, and put together a design and a quote. It’s as simple as that.
