Family Kitchen

Posted on Nov 21, 2011 3:26:00 PM

The Holidays = Family & Friends = Food.  Really, nothing makes the Holidays (whatever you celebrate) special like family and friends.  And there really is no better way to celebrate than with food.  Whether it's super casual and easy with delivery pizza and beer or a full Thanksgiving Dinner with all the trimmings, the time people spend together over food is always memorable.

A Customer from 1979

Posted on Jun 30, 2010 2:27:00 PM

S & W Kitchens recently went out to a customers house for an estimate on Cabinet Refacing.  We started the project and when we removed the countertops we discovered this label dating back to the original installation of the cabinets.   The sticker is the original cabinet mfg. shipping label and is dated March 27th 1979 which is when we installed this kitchen.   The current refacing customer was looking for a fresh new look, but was comforatble with the cabinet boxes, drawers, and interiors which were as strong as the day we installed them.     The cabinet brand Quakermaid, was our flagship brand 30 years ago and we were proud to discover that 30 years after installation the kitchen was still in fine shape.   Simply in need of a facelift.   Another example of why S & W Kitchens is a company with a reputation for quality that you can  trust.   Weve been here for 32 years and will be here for at least another 32.
