Kind Words From Our Clients

Relationship: Client

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.Read More

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!Read More

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.Read More

Relationship: Client

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!Read More

Relationship: Client

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.Read More

We worked with Accent on Kitchens to redesign our kitchen and dining room space. Cathy was amazing. She had fresh creative ideas that made the space exactly as we wanted it. She was on time, reasonably priced and the outcome was better than we had imagined. This could have been a major change or something more simple. Cathy understood this and found a solution that met our situation just right. We would use Cathy again in a heartbeat.Read More

Relationship: Client

Cathy was wonderful! She spent countless hours getting my kitchen just right! We converted an old 1880's living room into a new kitchen. Cathy did all the architectural work and it turned out beautifully. She has creative and knowledgeable ideas, but also really understood my specific needs and wants. She personally hunted down materials to fit my project. Most of the construction occurred while I was 2,000 miles away, and I was really impressed with Cathy's communication. She is an ultimate professional.Read More

Relationship: Client

What a pleasure working with Cathy for our kitchen remodel project. She was able to take our vision of a dream kitchen and turn it into a reality, through carefully listening to, and addressing, all of our questions and concerns. For our next project (bathroom), we will look no further than Cathy and Accent on Kitchens.Read More

Relationship: Client

We had been shopping around for a while trying to find someone to help us make our vision for our little kitchen a reality. One Saturday while driving to another kitchen supplier we saw the sign for Accents on Kitchens and decided to check it out. We found Cathy working with a customer, but after we had looked around for a few minutes she excused herself to talk with us and to tell us she’d be busy for an hour and we could wait or schedule a time to come back. We found this level of professionalism to be very refreshing and set up an appointment to come back. This professionalism was only the beginning. We found Cathy to be very knowledgeable not only with cabinets but she has a great knowledge of framing and construction, plumbing, electrical, appliances, hardware and countertops. She was able to understand what we were thinking and put it into a design that she still does on a drafting table, something I appreciated very much. She produced color renderings of her design that were wonderful. We were able to see our new kitchen in two different finishes helping to make our decision much easier. We ended up with a show piece kitchen in our opinion, that is far more functional than we had with much more usable space. I’d tell anyone if you’re looking for someone who knows kitchens and will be as enthusiastic about your project as you are go see Cathy at Accents on kitchens.Read More

Relationship: Client

From showroom discussions, site visits & design, through delivery and handoff to installation we really enjoyed the process and leveraged the experience of the designer and the impressive displays. Cathy was artful in adapting new cabinets to our less than level/square old new englander, and we're very pleased with the results. Her vendors were professional and reliable.Read More

We were very pleased with our experience working with Cathy at Accents on Kitchens. She has a keen knowledge in design as well as products. Her suggestions and guidance were invaluable as we navigated through our decisions. Although our project was not a large one no question was too small or unimportant to Cathy. She was there for us from beginning to end. We are thrilled with the new look of our kitchen. We highly recommend Cathy and would work with her again in a heartbeat.

Relationship: Client

We met with several kitchen designers, and when we found Cathy, we knew we had found the one to best help us achieve our goal of a beautiful and updated kitchen. Our raised ranch had the typical boring kitchen that was in desperate need of some personality and character, and a better functioning layout. Cathy transformed this space into something that is open and cozy and we couldn’t be happier! If you are looking for someone that is excited about creating a space that reflects you and your needs, look no further. Cathy is definitely the one for the job!Read More

Relationship: Client

When I met Cathy I was frustrated from having made the mistake of trying to work with a big box company. I explained what I had been through & Cathy was very positive and assuring that together we could get this project done without too much stress. I had a good idea of what I wanted and Cathy didn't seem to mind that. For example, I found my own pulls & knobs and not only was she not displeased with me, but she told me that she really liked them. She gave me guidance where I needed it & suggestions when I asked for them. I already knew what I wanted for countertop and I was able to pick out the cabinets quickly. She also suggested sources for flooring, new appliances, contractors & plumbing supplies (faucet & sink). I used almost all of her suggested sources and was pleased with them. She did all of the measuring and ordering. I was always able to contact her and she was always quick to get back to me. I never hesitated to ask her a question or ask her to share her knowledge & experience. As with any project, there were days when I just wanted to escape the mess but I am very pleased with the final outcome and I would do it all again for this result. I love my new kitchen & credit Cathy with helping me to get the end result that I wanted.Read More

We teamed with Digger at Accent On Kitchen, LLC for our 2015 addition/renovation kitchen project. Our new space was large and uniquely shaped, which may have proved a challenge for other designers; however, Digger created an amazing one-of-a-kind design that not only maximized efficiency and visual impact, but truly made the room one cohesive space. Best of all, Digger partnered with us throughout the creative process to understand our personal style, preferences, and absolute "must-haves". From there, he offered invaluable insight and guidance to make our kitchen vision a reality! We couldn't be happier with our new kitchen and would highly recommend Accent On Kitchens to anyone.Read More

We had the fortunate experience of working with Digger from Accent on Kitchens for our total kitchen renovation. From design to installation to completion the project was amazing. Our goal was to have an abundance of cabinet space and a center island that included a large cooktop and seating for six adults. Our goals were nonetheless exceeded. The cabinets are of high quality and Digger worked closely with us every step of the way to be sure that the cabinets, flooring, granite and appliances all worked amazingly well together. Accent on Kitchens also worked very closely with our contractor to ensure a timely completion and on budget as promised. Definitely highly recommend Digger and Accent for your next kitchen renovation. Accent also completed a major bathroom renovation at our home 3 years ago. Again, we were very happy with the results and the quality of their work.Read More

Relationship: Client

Last year I worked with Cathy Box of Accent on Kitchens to design a kitchen and bathrooms for our new house. The first thing that struck me was Cathy's enthusiasm. She was truly excited to work with me on our project. From picking out the cabinets to visiting the granite dealer with me to choose stone for the bathrooms to the time she spent with me looking at cabinet knobs and pulls she made the experience fun, and as stress free as building a kitchen could be. We have been in our home for a few months now and I am very happy every morning when I come down to my kitchen! The cabinets look great and Cathy added many little details that give our kitchen and bathrooms character. The stone we chose together looks perfect as do the knobs and pulls. Cathy was always available by phone, text or email. I was very glad to have her energy and expertise on this project which I had thought would be daunting, but turned out to be a lot of fun instead.Read More

I highly recommend her work.Read More
