Covid-19 Updates: Designing Your Kitchen Remotely
After meeting with numerous kitchen design companies, we choose to work with Paul and Main Line Kitchen Design in late Spring 2011. Paul presented us with not only the most cost efficient option but also was very knowledgeable and willing to work with us.
When we were initially looking for a kitchen designer we thought we wanted someone with a showroom and who would act as a project manager. However, we quickly learned that neither a showroom nor project manager was necessary. Paul met with us at our house to discuss the design and project multiple times (and would have met with us more if we had asked him to). Paul was also always willing to give us his opinion regarding colors, hardware, etc. and guide us as needed.
What I especially liked about Paul is his straight forward manner and honest opinion. Paul also recommended a contractor. We retained Al Panaccio. Al and his crew were extremely friendly and professional and we enjoyed working with them. As with any major renovations there were small issues that arose during the process but both Paul and Al jumped in and corrected the issues immediately. The finished work product looks great and the design is terrific. I highly recommend both Main Line design and Al Panaccio.
My wife and I hired Main Line Kitchen Design to completely redesign the kitchen of our new home. From the first meeting, Paul has been fantastic. He’s diligent, very attention oriented and extremely knowledgeable. Within 48 hours, we had the first renderings of what our space could look like; two meetings later, the design was finalized and the cabinets were ordered.
One of the things that impressed us most was Paul’s ability to understand our budget and find creative ways to get us within it. The final cost of our kitchen design ended up at 50% of the first quote, as each time we met, we fine tuned the design and stripped out elements that we felt we didn’t need. Paul was very good at removing “nice to have” items and design features (such as an expensive back plate on our island, a more expensive, but same looking crown moulding, etc.), which allowed us to reduce the price, while still creating our dream kitchen. The end result is a space that blows us away every single morning. It really does look like something from a home design magazine spread.
We really were blown away with the quality of service Main Line Kitchen Design provided and whole heartedly recommend them. Don’t consider anyone else, pick up the phone and call Paul today!
We were incredibly pleased with Paul and Main Line Kitchen Design. Paul designed our kitchen (every inch of it) and provided our cabinets. We had just bought a new house and knew we had a great deal of work ahead of us so we were anticipating a long and stressful road. With Paul, just the opposite occurred. He was thoughtful, patient, knowledgeable and extremely helpful. He listened to our ideas and helped us find just the perfect match for our style and price range.He was always quick to return emails and made us feel that our questions were important.
In fact, Paul took the time to go over every detail so that nothing was missed! His attention to detail and to customer service is extraordinary. We love our kitchen, especially the cabinets and the design. Every part of it is in the perfect place. It makes cooking and entertaining so enjoyable. I would highly recommend him to anyone in the market for cabinets. You will be so happy with the products and service!
I was renovating a smaller kitchen with the intention of eventually selling/renting out the house. I went in with a pretty narrow-minded, cookie-cut view of how the space was to be set up, but Paul was excellent in presenting different layouts, all with the cost effectiveness in mind.
In the end, I got a design that was far better than I could have anticipated, all the while knowing where I wanted to spend more or less. Now the kitchen is beautiful and laid out with much better functional ease, which is important for a small space. I may not rent/sell the place now that I love the kitchen so much! Also, Paul was so easy to work with and trust, and as someone who is busy and wanted things moving quickly and efficiently, he was more than accommodating; and he comes to you which is so convenient. Thank you for a wonderful design!
MLKD designed a terrific kitchen for me which opened up the existing space and made it far more aesthetically pleasing and functional. My new kitchen is light-filled, sleek, and well-organized. With the terrific pricing on cabinets purchased through MLKD and Paul’s superb advice concerning appliance and countertop options, the project ended up costing a fraction of what I had originally anticipated and included many features I thought were out of my price range.
Moreover, Paul didn’t just hand off a design but worked with my contractors to make sure everything arrived and was installed according to plan. I would recommend MLKD unconditionally!
Paul was a very valuable partner in remodeling our kitchen. He invested a tremendous amount of time working with us over the course of months to make sure all the details of the design were right. He was very open in suggesting alternate lower cost approaches to various aspects of the design that would not negatively impact the appearance or functionality (even if it meant that the contract value with his company would be reduced).
I would highly recommend Paul for your kitchen remodeling project.
Our original thoughts for our kitchen remodel were very narrow. Paul made some wonderful suggestions which we incorporated into the design and we are so happy that we did.
We LOVE our new space, the kitchen is functional and beautiful. Paul was great to work with!
Main Line Kitchen Design helped turn our 12 feet by 12 feet city kitchen into a mini chateau. The design that their patient and attentive owner created for us allows us to cook and entertain in a functional light filled space. His attention to detail and gentle challenging of our unrealistic ideas was extremely helpful.
You can have some of everything you want. Space and budget may set some boundaries but Paul will let your imagination fly and then be there with reason when you land. His suggestions for where to purchase appliances and finishes were excellent and his advice on hiring a contractor was also extremely helpful.
Our cabinets were purchased through him are beautiful and any problem was quickly remedied. He helped us stay within budget
Main Line Kitchen Design was so helpful in the remodeling of our kitchen. The designer Paul came up with some never-before thought of ideas for our small(er) sized kitchen. He was very creative in the process of coming with various options for us to choose from. And options he gave us. He was also very skilled in utilizing the kitchen design software, and even allowed us to play around with the software to see if we could come up with something better.
Paul listened to us and designed a kitchen to suit our needs. We needed to save money, but we didn’t want to sacrifice anything in our kitchen due to monetary constraints. This was where Paul really came in, telling us every different way to save money (even if it was coming out of his pocket!). Paul is able to save a lot of money and pass that savings on to you, his client, because he doesn’t have a big cabinet warehouse. We highly recommend the cabinets Paul sells. Better than having a huge warehouse, Paul punctually brings the warehouse to your house.
We didn’t even have to leave our house. He brought several options of cabinets to our house, where we could get the touch and feel of each cabinet we would be receiving. We preferred this to going to a big warehouse where we typically get lost when looking at the several options. Paul narrowed the choices down and only showed us what he knew we would be interested in. In the end, we were able to save some money compared to going with some other “Main line” designers, but we didn’t have to sacrifice anything in the kitchen.
I highly recommend the cabinets he sells. They are beautiful and cheaper than you can find anywhere, especially Home Depot and Lowes. Our kitchen is beautiful. Thanks a bunch! Importantly, Paul is as nice as it gets when it comes to being a person. We also highly recommend the contractor that he works with, Ed Blackman.
Paul from Main Line Kitchen Design was truly great. He did three kitchens for me. Each design was better than I could have imagined. He helped me choose the best cabinet style for the application and my budget. I would highly recommend Paul and Main Line Kitchen Design.
It was a real pleasure working with Paul from Main Line Kitchen Design. He designed a beautiful and extremely functional quality kitchen for us and we couldn’t be happier. We were also extremely happy with the contractor that Paul recommended to us. Working with Paul was a very positive and pleasant experience from beginning till end. I would highly recommend Paul and Main Line Kitchen Design.
Paul at Main Line Kitchen Design is creative and wonderful to work with. He redesigned our small and outdated kitchen into something that is modern and functional. We are so happy with our new kitchen. Thank you Main Line Kitchen Design.
Paul McAlary, the president, met with us to redesign our 15-year old kitchen. He absolutely transformed it. His design experience was invaluable. He took out the kitchen island and designed a peninsula that opened the space, providing more work space.
He suggested a contractor to complete the work who was very meticulous with craftsmanship and attention to detail. Our kitchen is the envy of the neighborhood…and we kept within our budget.
I’m a general contractor and I use Paul for all my kitchen projects He designs cutting edge designs along with practicality. When using Main Line Kitchen Design you will be sure to have great service and save money on your cabinet purchase.
Paul was the designer on my kitchen renovation at my beach house. He was very knowledgeable not just about color cabinets and countertops but more importantly about layout considerations, space planning, and functionality.
As a consumer it is easy to get excited about trying to put the perfect magazine kitchen into your home; Paul does a great job discussing how to obtain that same look within your kitchen blue print and keep you from making functional mistakes. He has a good vision for identifying how you will live in your new kitchen and what is needed to make that happen.
Main Line Kitchen Design did a great job with my kitchen. Highly recommended!!
Paul and Ray immediately calmed any reservations I had about proceeding with remodeling. The technology they used and their knowledge about every aspect of the process made me comfortable every step of the way. I love my kitchen — and my cookbook.
Ed was great to work with. I couldn’t recommend them enough.
It was a true pleasure to work with Main Line Kitchen Design. My wife and I actually worked with Paul remotely from Montana and the process went very smoothly. Their designs exceeded our expectations and the cost came in under budget. Thanks!
Paul found mistakes that our architect made that saved us a fortune and the design he came up with was something no one else thought of.
The designs they came up with were far better and ended costing us less when when we priced our kitchen out at other places.
This is a design company that thinks outside the box. Very innovative at solving difficult space problems and creating beautiful interiors that are elegant, livable, and customized to client expectations. And they are honest and reasonably priced.
Great job on our kitchen renovation! We couldn’t be happier.
Paul designed several kitchens for my family and we loved them all. He is knowledgeable and creative.
I love my new kitchen!!!!!!!
