Advice for homeowners when purchasing a kitchen: Purchasing a kitchen can be a very overwhelming and stressful process for a lot of people. It is easiest to take things one step at a time, coming up with a list of must-have. Storage solutions & accessories are a great place to start. Once those functional and detailed decisions get made, it is easier to make more difficult decisions like the door style and color. Walking around our showroom is a great place to find design inspiration!
What I love about designing kitchens: I love designing kitchens because every day is a new challenge, every customer is a new experience, and every kitchen brings a new solution. The kitchen often times is the heart of a home, and helping people fall in love with their kitchen again is a very exciting and rewarding process.
What My Customers Are Saying:
“I am thrilled with my new kitchen and specifically with the work that Allie did. She paid attention to what I was looking for in terms of price and timing and gave me great feedback on color choice as it relates to my goals and resale value. Allie went out of her way to measure quickly to ensure my install before the holidays. I went to several other places and absolutely made the right choice in selecting Norfolk. I hosted Christmas and all of my guests just could not get over how beautiful my new buffet area was, as well as how Allie optimized the space in my kitchen layout. I am a fan and would recommend Norfolk to anyone.” – Nancy

The showroom is recently refurbished with a great selections and makes taking all those required decisions easier. I would recommend Norfolk and Alli to my friends.” -Masoud
