Building your dream kitchen and bathroom together at Elite.

About Elite Kitchens Owner Ken
Meet Ken. Ken is the founder and owner of Elite Kitchens and Bathrooms. Ken always enjoyed building things. When he graduated high school, he knew what he wanted to do… build furniture! He began working in the construction industry, learning how to frame structures and the logistics of construction and layout. Ken then moved to a kitchen cabinet company from 1985 until 1989 working his way up from general labourer to shop foreman. During this time, he attended BCIT and completed his journeyman’s ticket in benchwork joinery. After that, he worked building furniture at a high-end furniture manufacturer for about a year and a half where he honed his skills of (fine craftsmanship). Armed with a number of years of experience and knowledge in both furniture manufacturing and cabinet manufacturing, Ken decided it was time to start his own business. Elite was born in 1990 in Maple Ridge crafting both furniture and custom cabinetry.
Elite Kitchens and Bathrooms moved to its current location in Langley in 1991. The demand for high-end furniture slowed and the business became focused on creating custom cabinetry with an eye for craftsmanship (same as furniture). Ken continues to strive for fine craftsmanship and attention to detail and that is the motivation and that is what remains in every kitchen, bathroom, office/den, theatre room or any other room that requires custom cabinetry. He loves to help customers find their own design and bring it to life with work with the home owner to create something specific to them making what seams impossible -work, Creating new ways to innovate our ever changing lives in our busiest room of the house making your place, not look like the every other house.

Elite Custom Kitchens Vancouver

Keeping Promises, One Detail at a Time

What you see when you look at Elite’s custom cabinets is impressive. But what you can’t see is even more impressive. It’s the unseen elements that separates Elite Kitchens & Bathrooms from its competitors. For instance, our total teamwork commitment to customer service and the extra special attention we pay to the smallest of details. It’s easy to make promises but it’s another matter keeping them. You won’t find Elite Kitchens & Bathrooms making promises it can’t or won’t keep. The superior craftsmanship, quality materials and excellent prices of our custom cabinets are all just as impressive as the finished cabinets you see!

Our Closet Makeover

Hello and welcome to my closet! Something not many people probably say, but I wanted to show you what we have been up to…a closet renovation! Yes, we do kitchens and bathrooms, but we also do anything custom, such as theatre rooms, wine cellars, built-in entertainment centers, and … closets! It would just be a really long name if we listed everything we do. We have been busy renovating our master bedroom closet and wanted to give you a tour. Come join me-I’ve done a video tour of our closet makeover as well, so if you are so inclined, please watch it too! Our closet, “Before” Just like most people living in the lower mainland, our closets become a catch-all for everything. We stored wall art that was out of season, sentimental treasures, as well as the usual clothes, shoes, belts, ties, coats…you know what I’m talking about!? And, although we have a walk-in closet, it’s not huge by any means and we needed to organize it to give us more space. Here is what we did to go from cramped to “glamped”! I found some great little ideas that you might like to incorporate too! Let’s get started! Our closet, “After” The biggest thing we did to create more space is to reduce. Yeah, I know you have heard it before and so many people say they need to let things go, but it really is true! Ken and I each culled 40 items out of our closet. I struggle with my weight going up and down up to 20 pounds. I know-crazy, right? So I have learned that... read more

Paleo Lemon Tart

This paleo lemon tart is a healthier way to satisfy your sweet tooth. Paleo Lemon Tart Crust: 1 1/2 c almond flour 2 Tbsp honey 1/4 c coconut oil, melted 1 Tbsp fresh squeezed lemon juice Filling: 2 Tbsp lemon zest 1/4 c fresh squeezed lemon juice 3/4 c honey 1/4 c coconut oil 2 large eggs (room temperature) 1/4 tsp salt Instructions: Preheat oven to 350°F. In a small bowl, use a spoon to mix together the almond flour, honey, coconut oil and lemon juice. Press the dough evenly into the bottom and sides of a tart pan. Use a fork to prick holes into the dough before baking for 10 minutes or until crust is golden brown. Allow the crust to cool completely before adding the filling. Place all ingredients for the filling, except the coconut oil, into a small saucepan and whisk them together. Add the coconut oil to the saucepan before placing the pan on the stove over low heat. Whisk the mixture continuously while it’s over the heat. Once the coconut oil has melted, increase heat to medium. Continue to whisk the mixture until it has thickened. About 10-15 minutes. Remove from heat and strain the curd into a bowl. DO NOT SKIP THIS STEP-straining will remove the zest and any pieces of egg that may have cooked. Allow the curd to cool for at least 15 minutes before pouring into the tart crust. Place the tart in the refrigerator for about an hour to cool and set. If the curd does not jiggle when moving the pan, it’s ready! Top with berries and... read more

Mexican Stuffed Peppers

Our Mexican Stuffed Peppers make for an easy, satisfying weeknight dinner! Mexican Stuffed Peppers 5 red bell peppers 1 lb ground beef or turkey 1 onion, chopped 1 can black beans-drained and rinsed 1 Tbsp taco seasoning (I use Epicure) 1 c cooked rice 1 c corn (I use frozen and don’t thaw-just throw it in) 1 c salsa (I add an extra 1/2 cup, just to make it more flavourful and juicy) 1 c shredded cheese Clean out bell peppers and bake for 20 minutes in a 350 °F oven. Brown ground meat. Add taco seasoning, onion, beans, rice and corn. Stir. Add salsa and cheese. Fill peppers with mixture and top with more cheese. Bake for 15 mins longer at 350°F. Top with guacamole, sour cream and shredded cheese if you like! Tastes great just out of the oven without any toppings, but sometimes you just want the extra! Tip: to keep peppers standing, you can put them in a muffin tin, as long as they aren’t too big. I fit them in a pan with sides and try to buy peppers that have a flat bottom. Enjoy!
