2015 Remodelers Showcase
Sandy and Kurt: Wayzata
In the spring of 2014 we were entering the 35th year in our home. The kitchen was outdated and in need of new appliances. It was time to completely remodel the kitchen, something we had dreamed of for years.
We had a good idea of the design we wanted but needed to find a quality company to do the job. We started by asking friends who had remodeled for their recommendations. Crystal Kitchen Center came very highly recommended by friends with high standards. We went to their beautiful showroom which displayed kitchen designs using different cabinet designs. It was so helpful from the moment we walked in we knew they were the ones for us. We set an appointment with designer Mary Maney. She visited our home to measure and designed the kitchen we wanted. Based on our desires she drew up a plan that was perfect for us. She was very easy to work with and offered suggestions that we had not considered. Crystal kitchen center made our dreams a reality in just 6 weeks!!
They provided us with a detailed calendar of the dates everything would be completed. We were amazed that we had no delays and they completed the job on time.
All the contractors were tidy, friendly, professional and the craftsmanship was excellent. If we ever had a concern they addressed it, many times before we even bought it to their attention.
The final result was a gorgeous white kitchen with a spacious layout that was perfect for us. Every space was utilized and functional. The glass cabinet added an elegant touch and allows us to display treasured pieces. The white cabinetry made the space so fresh and bright. After a year and a half in our beauty it’s our dream kitchen.
We look forward to remodeling our bathroom with Crystal Kitchen Center.

Paul and Stephanie: Golden Valley
These homeowners discussed their renovation for three years before they were ready. They needed a more efficient space on the main floor to host gatherings, and wanted to transition their house for the future by adding main level living. They chose Crystal Kitchen + Bath for its reputation for quality, the referrals they received, and its timeless portfolio.
Stephanie hit it off with designer Mary Maney right away because, “You could tell she really listened to us. She designed our kitchen to match our lifestyle and made us feel cared for and valued as clients.” Paul liked that “they covered areas and sectioned off other parts to keep dust at a minimum. They were really respectful.”

We are so happy with the results and working with you all was really stress free. I don’t believe that can often be said when construction is happening. Looking forward to starting our bathroom project next. The teams professionalism and respect were exceptional, many thanks.

Really enjoyed working with everyone at Crystal Kitchen + Bath (staff and subcontractors) all excellent, very competent and responsive. Excellent design, competence all the way around, Jolynn and Carol are very responsive, attentive, well-coordinated. Good value for my investment. Jolynn has high standards for herself and her team and it shows in the quality of the work, including what you can’t see such as insulation, electrical, plumbing-all the things you want done well so that you don’t have problems later. Carol did numerous drawings as the project went forward which helped enormously in making decisions, including the structural changes, the decorative tile detail, the cabinetry, and more. Jolynn does an outstanding job of coordinating and communicating, from the major parts of the project to the small that can get missed without good attention to detail. I was always in the know about the next steps. Besides her skills as a designer, Carol is great at being supportive of decisions or guiding away from choices that would have worked less well. I trusted her for color, style, proportion, and the like. The decisions were mine but her advice was invaluable. She was careful to listen to my preferences for the overall appearance and feel of my new kitchen and used her expertise to make the most of my space.

Jolynn and her team of designer’s ability to understand the goals of our project and come up with a unique and exciting design was impressive. They provided leadership and decision making support along the whole process from concept design, selection of finishes to the final construction walk through.
We thoroughly enjoyed working with the team of sub-contractors during the construction phase. This overall attention to detail and follow-through made the whole process go smoothly and delivered a great project.
Kathy and Mark: Plymouth
We were looking for help to redesign and renovate our kitchen and stopped into CKC to meet with Mary Maney. Our house was built 15 years ago but our kids have recently gone to college, so the way we use the kitchen and mudroom space in the house has changed. We wanted to better use the space, create a more spacious kitchen and update the finishes and appliances. Mary helped us design our new kitchen and choose materials and colors that also worked with the rest of the finishes in our home. Working with Jolynn and her team of subcontractors was a good experience and the final product has exceeded our expectations. We love our new kitchen!
Mary was perfect! Could not have been any better. Her efforts at the outset, prior to the design retainer, made all the difference. She did A LOT of work to establish the cost, and she is the number one reason we went with Crystal Kitchen + Bath. “I can’t say enough good things about her. Without her efforts we would not have gotten the project- she deserves all the credit.”
Judy and Bill: Minneapolis
We cannot emphasize enough how well the project went we were told what to expect, kept up to date on progress and finished on time. The quality of design and craftsmanship was outstanding. Thanks you to Mary.
Maple Grove Kitchen
Mike and Mary Lynn: Maple Grove
We have gotten so much enjoyment out of our kitchen it was worth every penny! We couldn’t be happier, Barb and Crystal Kitchen + Bath was great to work with and our kitchen ended up better than our expectations. They are experts in kitchen design for a reason.
Beautiful Condo Makeover
Pat and Mary: Edina
Our condo was in dire need of an update from its original 1980’s décor. After interviewing a number of design firms, we happened upon an ad for a CKC’s Design Seminar. We were very impressed with the straightforward, no-nonsense, informative presentation. All it took was a brief discussion with Jolynn and Mary Maney to convince us that CKC was the ideal match for us.
The kitchen and adjacent rooms were gutted. Walls were removed and needless passages were closed. What at first seemed like a daunting task to select materials for our project was greatly simplified by CKC’s excellent relationship with their subcontractors and vendors. The knowledge and expertise of the entire Project Team was outstanding. All of our condo neighbors expressed their appreciation for the courtesy and consideration the Team had for them and their “home” during our project.
Before the remodel we did very little cooking and relied a lot on take-out and microwave meals. Now we thoroughly enjoy cooking in our beautiful new kitchen. An added bonus we didn’t expect is our weight loss and improved health. The only downside is we now longer get holiday cards from our long- time favorite take-out restaurants.
Seriously, we are very pleased with the wonderful results and highly recommend Crystal Kitchen Center.
High Gloss Contemporary
Rebecca and Rick: Wayzata
We were introduced to Jolynn at CKC after months of not finding what we wanted with other high-end cabinet makers. We needed a designer who could visualize and produce contemporary cabinets for a new, 10,000 sq ft, modern house. We knew after 10 minutes of meeting Jolynn that she was the one who could handle our project. She is detail-orientated and was able to beautifully construct our vision. Jolynn was fast, helpful, responsive and met or exceeded our requirements. She made several trips to the build site to measure and monitor the progress. Her installers are perfectionists; highly-skilled and very precise. They were easy to get a hold of and quick to follow-up on any adjustments. In conclusion, I would highly recommend CKC to anyone looking for cabinet design and installation! We put them to the ultimate test with budget, design and timeline and we couldn’t be happier with the experience and the beautiful result!

The design process with Jolynn was awesome. She listened to our ideas and desires for our new kitchen, while adding suggestions and recommendations based upon her expertise. She was very knowledgeable about current trends and products.
The project followed the timeline nearly perfectly. We knew ahead of time what was going on to be happening and when. We were made aware of the few minor changes which did occur. This made the project very stress free. Jolynn consulted with us nearly daily and made recommendations when necessary throughout the project, which added significantly to the quality of the finish project. The work crews were friendly and respectful. Our kitchen turned out better than we imagined. While we enjoy the beauty of it, what we most appreciate is the functionality. Taking the wall out made is such a usable space. Jolynn’s insight into the layout, specifically what types of drawers or features to put where makes this one of the easiest kitchens in which to cook and entertain.
We would use Crystal Kitchen + Bath in the future their service and quality is superb.
Brooklyn park kitchen
Tami and Tom: Brooklyn Park
The designer and project manager on our project were both terrific. Their showroom is what really sold us. We got many ideas and were very inspired by the unique finishes and styles. A “Top Notch” operation. The subcontractors were all very professional. They cleaned up well at the end of each the day. We had a bit of a scheduling glitch but overall I would hire Crystal Kitchen + Bath again and recommend them to friends.
