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.

Getting More out of Bathroom Space

Although the bathroom is one of the smallest rooms in a home, it is a room that sees a preponderance of activity and traffic. The average family spends a great deal of time in the bathroom and often, argues and fights over the lack of usable space. Getting the most out of a limited amount of space is the biggest challenge for anyone planning a bathroom renovation. The room must contain a toilet, sink, and bath/shower. Where they are placed and what is placed around them is the way to use the limited space in the most efficient way possible. At Elite Kitchens and Bathrooms, we work with all our customers to ensure that their bathroom uses space and allows them to enjoy moving in their bathrooms. We’ve come up with some inventive and ingenious solutions that can turn your bathroom into a beautiful, elegant place with space for everything. We believe in effectively using all the available space in a stylish and efficient manner. Many bathrooms contain one storage space – a cabinet under the sink. At Elite Kitchens and Bathrooms, we consider the space on the  walls, the space above the countertop, and the free space on the countertop. One very beautiful thing we did was to build a cabinet that sat on the countertop, separating the two sinks. It’s functional, aesthetically pleasing, and gave the bathroom an entire new storage space. A tall, almost room-height, bathroom cabinet that can sit beside the countertop is another effective use of space. Not only does it provide more storage space, but it’s a very effective way to use space... read more

Tips for a Stress-Free Christmas Season

When you are the mom and it’s Christmas…it’s not the same as when you are the child at Christmas, now is it? My daughter was excited about the upcoming holidays and we dreamt of the future holidays with grandchildren and it occurred to me that she will one day be the mom and the one responsible for “making Christmas happen”. It was then that I realized how much I worked to make the holidays magical for my family and that some of the magic gets lost in all the work to prepare. Don’t get me wrong, I am still obsessed about the holidays and I look forward to Christmas for many months in advance-it is still a magical time of year for me and I really love it, but it now is up to me to make it happen, for the most part. Ask anyone and they will say that I go all out for this holiday-I admit it. Minimalism at Christmas just doesn’t happen at the Jungling house. I have made by hand and collected Christmas decorations since I can remember and they all come out after Remembrance Day and remain up until school starts in January. It’s a tradition. It’s my insanity…but it is a lot of work. And that’s just the decorations, add to the list gift giving, baking, and preparing meals…yikes! Christmas can be overwhelming! And I know I am not alone. In fact, a survey done by the American Psychological Association has found that: “Holiday stress has a particular impact on women, who take charge of many of the holiday celebrations, particularly the tasks related... read more
