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.

Choosing the right bathroom vanity

With any bathroom renovation, one of the biggest choices is to decide on what is the right bathroom vanity. Some people want classic styles and others modern. Some bright bathrooms and others dark. But these are style choices, and each is correct for the person choosing. Here are some other things to consider when choosing your new bathroom vanity. Bathroom limitations Before starting to choose a vanity, consider these things: How much space do you have? Where is the plumbing? Are there any obstacles, such as the door, shower, tub, or toilet? What is the traffic flow? By answering these questions first, you can help make your decision much easier. Bathroom usage Depending on who’s using the bathroom, you will figure out how much storage space you’ll need and how many sinks. If this is a vanity for a half bathroom, or a guest room, then you’ll need a smaller vanity and probably only one sink. If this is the main bathroom for a larger family, the more storage and sinks you can get, the better. What kind of storage? The simplest question to answer is whether you prefer shelves or doors. But your space limitations may make one work better than the other. One of the best things about coming to see Elite Kitchens is that we’ll customize your vanity to offer you the exact type of storage you want and make it work in your space. Sinks and Fixtures Now it’s time to start thinking about the personal style of the vanity. You get to choose what kind of sink you want – undermount, self-rimming, or vessel.... read more

Kitchen Cupboards Aren’t What They Used To Be

Walking into an old home, or a heritage home, can be a real eye opener to how things have changed from then to now. Rooms are designed very differently these days and nowhere is that more evident than the kitchen. In the past, kitchens were designed to be used by either the housewife or the maid and no one else ever set foot into it. Aesthetics weren’t as important as functionality, but yet there was very little consideration given to what the user actually needed to properly produce a meal. Kitchen cupboards were designed as if they were cabinets attached to a wall. It was common to see heavy wood used, turning the simple act of opening the door into a workout. Instead of finding out what would go in the cupboards and then designing around that, the homeowner had to figure out how they could fit their possessions into the cupboards. Owners of older homes in Vancouver also know the problem of space in a kitchen. Many cupboards were built to be as deep as possible so they could store everything needed. The upside is that they can shove every appliance away. The downside is that there’s no way more than one person can cook at one time. That might not have been a problem in the past, but it really doesn’t work today. At Elite Kitchens and Bathrooms, we do things in the opposite way. Instead of trying to force you to fit your life into your kitchen, we fit your kitchen to your life. With our custom designed and built cabinetry, you will have a kitchen... read more
