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 Choose the Right Kitchen Cabinet Finish

One decision that frequently gets ignored, even when building custom kitchen cabinetry, is the finish on the cabinets. People spend time matching colour, choosing the right design, and then are faced with the challenge of that final option. Here is a quick look at how to choose the right cabinet finish. Two very popular finishes are High Gloss and Flat Matte. Just like with photographs, gloss is shiny and matte isn’t. Depending on what kind of kitchen you want and the style you’ve chosen, you’ll want to carefully pick the finish as well. High gloss is a more modern-looking finish that is shiny and reflects light well. It’s great if you have a smaller-sized kitchen and want to give the illusion of space. This shine is also good if you’re picking dark colours and want to brighten things up. Many young families in Greater Vancouver choose high gloss because it’s easy to clean, with just a soft, non-scratch cloth. On the other hand, flat matte is a more traditional style and is perfect if you want a country-style kitchen. It’s very common in large kitchens with many colours because reflections aren’t a problem. Another big advantage to matte finishes is that they don’t show fingerprints or marks. With no light reflections, you won’t see those spots or blemishes. But some people feel that flat matte finishes, especially when done in the entire kitchen, can look a little boring. They choose to mix the two, using two different finishes to make the room look more interesting. They will use the high gloss on higher cabinets to reflect the light, and... read more

Cabinet Inserts and Organizers for Space Maximization

Has this ever happened to you before? You’re cooking dinner, moving smoothly from stovetop to counter, mixing and stirring, chopping and dicing, and everything is coming along marvellously. The sauce you’re making looks beautiful but you know you need one more thing, one more ingredient to make it perfect. You need some lemon zest. You grab the lemon out of the fridge and then pull open the top drawer, looking for the zester. And you’re greeted by a chaotic mess of kitchen tools and measuring cups, all scattered haphazardly within the drawer. It’s a real mess, metal and plastic pressed together. So you start pushing pieces this way and that, trying to find that one tool you need. So why not solve that problem and ensure it never happens again? Cabinet inserts and organizers are the perfect way to make sure that everything has a proper place in your kitchen.
