When we first started our search for a kitchen designer we met with several well known companies in the NH seacoast area. We finally met Cathy Box , owner of Accent on Kitchens. Cathy is a personable, outstanding professional to work with who has very creative ideas. She made it a priority to get to know us well and after meeting with her several times she was able to come up with a beautiful design that met all our needs. While the kitchen is stunning it is also quite functional. She thought of everything! We highly recommend Cathy and wouldn't hesitate to use her again.

Cathy listened very carefully and respectfully to our wishes for our kitchen update and guided us to the products, services and people to complete the job. She is “unflinchingly nice”, cheerful and tireless. As a result, our kitchen looks like a million bucks!

We just completed a kitchen and master bath renovation project with Cathy. The whole experience from start to finish was perfect. The sub contractors that Cathy provided were absolutely outstanding. The quality of their work and the manner in which they carried it out was more than expected. Great job by all from start to finish. We would highly recommend Cathy and Accent on Kitchens.

When we moved into our new home we really didn't like the kitchen; everything was white, off-white & maybe white (see photo). I passed Accent On Kitchens on my way to school & decided to go in - one of my best decisions. Cathy was polite, knew what I was looking for (even though I could only describe my thoughts roughly) & helped me find exactly what I wanted. A butcher-block countertop, slate tiles, kitchen sink & some paint later our kitchen was transformed (see photos). Cathy & the installation crew she hired did a fantastic job; very good quality work which was done on time & in budget! Thank you so much for your help!

We have finished a complete kitchen remodel. I worked with Lisa O’Brien whose professionalism, knowledge and design were outstanding and very helpful. The supply of Candlelight Cabinets was completed on time and on budget. She was also instrumental in finding quality and affordable contractors for the install of cabinets, counter tops, tile work, and all appliances. Lisa has the taste and style that we liked and was able to guide us towards what we find as a tasteful and appealing in efficiently coordinating a working kitchen. I would highly recommend Accent on Kitchens.

Kathlyn hired me to jet out a perimeter drain at a house she manages. She was very polite, professional, and a great pleasure to work with.

Jeanne was a true delight to work with. She helped me make choices that fit my budget but added special touches that made my kitchen design unique. I had planned to purchase cabinets at a big box store and after learning about all of the little details that Jeanne thought of proactively, I know I made the right choice. Highly recommend!
