Our Approach

Imagine Kitchens specializes in a FULL SERVICE remodel of a kitchen or bath. They are responsible for the planning, design and a coordinated installation process, on a planned time frame and at a pre-quoted, fixed budget. "We work closely with the clients, contractors & designers throughout the process to make sure everything is what they want and that it is done in a manner that maintains quality on the project.

Our talented INSTALLERS are integral to this process. We work on a consistent basis with the same subcontractors. "Our contractors have learned our expectations"

The SHOWROOM plays a vital role in helping the client to "see" their new room at the start of the process. There are six kitchens which are fully developed ideas with cabinets, counters, appliances, fixtures, floors, lighting and wall treatments. Three more bath displays are then complemented by a dozen assorted Vanities, Desks and a Buffet. In each case, the customer can refine their likes and dislikes and move towards a choice which meets their taste and budget. This is a "hands on" experience for the customer. We have cabinet, counter top and tile samples for choosing packages.. We are always updating and improving the showroom.

STOP BY and put our many years of experience to work for you. Whether you are redoing a shower or planning a bigger remodel, their planning skills, experience and broad range of products will insure the best outcome for your project. There is no charge for our professional design service. We really believe that we are the best way for you to do your project.

Scott Russell

Scott, son of Jim & Elaine Russell has grown up in the cabinet business, from loading stock cabinets into our barn as a kid, staring in 1985, to driving the delivery truck in the 1990s. He has a background in basic carpentry, plumbing, and electrical issues we encounter frequently in kitchen design. More importantly, he develops great plans, working with customers to design kitchens until they are complete and detailed. He works with our installer or the customer's contractor to carry out the vision. Now, Scott is the one we look to update our phones and computers and developing our 48” computer rendering system for showing our customers their proposed kitchen on a 48” dynamic display screen.
