  4. Enjoying a wonderful company holiday party with all of 5 designers and our significant others at The Manayunk Brewing Company
  5. Two kitchens featured in the Ardmore Library Kitchen Tour
  6. Having our blog selected as the 5th best blog on kitchen design in the world by Feedspot
  7. Averaging 20,000 visitors a month on our web site.

Ardmore Library Kitchen Tour Kitchen #2


Looking towards 2018 some of the events we anticipate are:


  1. Finishing our Recommendations of Kitchen Dealers and Designers around the US. Because we get calls daily from all over the US we are hoping to steer people outside of our service area to dealers where they can get competent kitchen design help. This will help customers outside our service area, and help us by reducing the time we spend answering kitchen questions from people that can’t find good design help near them.
  2. Opening a third office in Havertown across from the post office on City Avenue and over AD Panaccio. We work with General Contractor Al Panaccio on a regular basis and look forward to maintaining an additional office upstairs from his.
  3. Doing our 2018 updated Kitchen Cabinet Rankings. We will expand our rankings to include the top 100 most popular cabinet lines.
  4. Continuing to enter our kitchens in design competitions and to showcase them on kitchen tours in our area.
  5. Exceeding 3,000 likes on Facebook, 1000 visitors a day on our web site, and 100,000 views of our 211 second kitchen video on Youtube.
  6. Hiring an expeditor to help our designers process our orders and to assure we maintain the same level of customer service as we grow.
  7. Trying new marketing strategies like the Geo Fencing of industry events such as The Philadelphia Home Show.


Next week Julie and I are looking forward to the 2018 Kitchen and Bath Industry Show in Orlando Florida.

Thanks to all our customers – you made 2017 very special!

… and of course … as Julia Child said so distinctly …

Bon Appetit!

    As of February 5th 2018 Main Line Kitchen Design has already knocked off several goals from our list:
    1) We completed our list of recommended dealers across the US.
    4) We have at least one kitchen in the Ardmore Library tour and entered a design competition.
    5) We reached 3000 likes on facebook and 1000 visits in a day on our web site.
    7) And we completed our first combined advertising campaign using a combination of magazine ads and geofencing.

    Do you know when your 2018 review of cabinets will be released? I am really looking forward to seeing it!

  3. pmcalary, March 7, 2018 at 4:12 pm:

    Thanks. We are hoping to finish it by the end of March and release it then or in early April. As an aside, while working on it we are finding that cabinet companies seem to be getting less transparent and not more. Because of this we are considering adding a rating for transparency to our review since so many cabinet companies refuse to be up front on how their cabinets are made.

  4. Hanalee, March 7, 2018 at 4:27 pm:

    Unfortunately we will probably have to make a decision prior to your newest rating. I am hoping that you still will have positive ratings for Fabuwood and Wellborn.
    Fabuwood seems to offer more as standard on their cabinets than Wellborn..

  5. pmcalary, March 8, 2018 at 7:19 am:

    We don’t have to finish the reviews to tell you what’s up with both those lines.

    Fabuwood keeps the same high review for an inexpensive cabinet line. We sell a lot of Fabuwood and have very few issues with the cabinets. For the very inexpensive brands there is no question they are the best. Because of this though they have become the largest and fastest expanding cabinet company in the United States. Hopefully they can handle the expansion without many delays or back orders. They have had some.

    Wolf the other rapidly expanding low cost line has had pretty severe back order issues due to selling themselves out of stock but I hear that they have now caught up. Ask the dealer if the cabinet style choice you make in Fabuwood has any delays. The new door styles have been the problem in the past since is is difficult to judge demand for a new release. Galaxy Horizon for example is still 6 weeks for delivery.

    Wellborn must be upgraded to the Premier series All Plywood Construction to be the great cabinet it can be. Wellborn upgraded will be far more expensive than Fabuwood. The line offers high end custom options at a reasonable price. Nicer looking finishes, many door style options, many types woods to choose from and inset cabinetry in their Estate Collection are reasons to buy this line. People getting a shaker door style in a painted white finish would spend their money more wisely on Fabuwood since they wouldn’t be taking advantage of any of the reasons Wellborn is more expensive.

    Wellborn Forrest Elite series appears well made but we haven’t finished our research on this line.

    Thank you, Paul for your detailed response.
    Wish we lived near you or that you were in Tampa. I think your customers are so lucky to have such a knowledgeable person who is so willing to share his advice.
    I feel so lucky that I found your blog! You are an amazing resource!!
