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.

Countertop Options: Granite Vs. Quartz

One of the most important decisions any homeowner will make regarding a new kitchen installation is regarding their countertops. Your kitchen counters will be utilized as much or more than your appliances, and therefore, the surface material you choose must be and in many cases, timeless. Granite and quartz are both durable and popular materials that many homeowners are choosing simply because of their elegance and high performance. While you may be overwhelmed by the variety available, there are unique differences between the options in granite and quartz that make them very different. Granite is a natural material, coming from a large slab of stone that is extracted from the earth making it an eco-friendly building material. Natural variations in each slab will differ because no two pieces will be exactly alike. Because of its natural striations in the stone, seams can be more evident if your kitchen design has any bends or curves that require cuts. The colours available will vary, from earth tones to greens, pinks and blues. Given that granite is naturally porous, once installed it needs to be sealed with the appropriate sealer. Both granite and quartz are excellent options for kitchen countertops. While some homeowners prefer having a unique natural material such as granite in their home, others may prefer the uniformity of quartz because it is man-made, which means it will always look the same.
