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.

How to Care For and Clean Quartz Countertops

Quartz countertops are incredibly popular in kitchens all over Vancouver. This man-made surface, which is harder than glass, can be used in kitchens, bathrooms, or laundry areas inside the home. And since they are a uniform product, purchasing a quartz countertop can be a stress-free experience – you know exactly what you’re going to get. Another benefit of having a quartz countertop is just how easy it is to take care of and maintain. Here are some tips and suggestions for your quartz kitchen countertop. Spills Since quartz is not porous, spills are not a problem. Simply wipe them away. But if you spill something that hardens on your countertop, like grease or paint, scrape it away with a plastic scraper. When cleaning your countertop, use a soft cloth and warm water – use a mild soap if you want to. Heat Quartz is not heat resistant. Don’t treat your countertop like it’s indestructible. Quartz countertops will be damaged by heat, so make sure you always use a trivet or hot pad. Stains Yes, quartz is non-absorbent and stain-resistant, but that doesn’t mean that a permanent marker or a powerful chemical or solvent won’t leave a mark. Whether there is a stain left behind when the Sharpie slips, or you lose the polished look because of a spilled chemical, you want to wipe those up quickly to protect your countertop. Cuts and Scratches Quartz may be harder than glass, but that doesn’t mean you should be using it as a cutting board. In fact, you shouldn’t use any abrasive on the countertop. Cutting on your quartz countertop will damage... read more
