My friend advised me to always listen to my designer, and I did! We’re so glad John Shipley recommended you! What a great combination of quality remodeling and quality kitchen planning and cabinets. I’ve been dreaming of a new kitchen for 38 years and I’m happy to say I couldn’t have found a more willing, friendly staff to work with. It made my experience a joyful one! I never felt lost in the shuffle.

Great experience working with Diane!
Mike & Terry Jahn


Diane listened to what I wanted, asked all the right questions and then hit a grand slam home run on the design. It met all my needs and wants, plus more!!
David & Sharon Ball


Thank you sooooo much! Working with you made everything easy and gorgeous. I will send you some pictures for sure when we get organized. The middle of November will be our move in date. Can’t wait!!!!!
Mike & Terry Jahn


I really appreciate Diane’s patience in helping me find what I wanted, also in sharing me alternatives, when I, of course, picked the priciest. I never felt rushed to make a decision and Diane was always available when I had questions or got back to me in a timely manner.
John & Kim Reid


Thank you so much for helping us with our kitchen design. We love the new kitchen. Everything went very smooth and we couldn’t be happier! If you’re in the neighborhood, stop by and take a look – it could be in a magazine!!! Thanks again.
Steve and Tammy Webster


Diane,
You and your staff did an excellent job. We can’t tell you how much we LOVE our new kitchen. Thank you for your beautiful design and for the great job you did. We could never have done the project on our own. We have done a lot of entertaining over the last two months and everyone has loved the new layouts and finishes. Thank you!
Julie Shalbrack


Diane,
We appreciated your knowledge of the latest products and styles. You were helpful in every way. We love it all and our experience was wonderful in every way.
Dan & Melanie Purviance


You were so helpful. I dreaded the job of picking out countertops, cabinets, backsplash, etc, but the two of you made it easy. Scott was also a true gem. I was worried about having men in my home everyday for weeks – but he was great and is now almost a member of the family! Hats off to all three of you!!
Pat Peterson


I just wanted to tell you how wonderful your staff has been. Anytime I would call with silly questions, they would have the answers and make me feel not so silly! Please thank them for their patience. Thank you!
Debbie Boogaard


I REALLY appreciate your customer service on making sure I am happy!  🙂

Angela Kneller


Absolutely gorgeous! It is all looking fabulous. [Sean Adams Builders] is very impressed with how well the cabinets are made. I am extremely glad you are on our team. We are soooo proud and happy with your part of making our dream come true.
Mike and Terry Jahn


Hello Diane,
I was thinking about you, because I just realized that a year ago our kitchen was torn down to the studs. I knew we were finally getting a new kitchen, but at that time I had no idea what an amazing transformation it would be! You had a vision, and we trusted you to carry it out. Well, you certainly did. Our kitchen is above and beyond all my expectations. We absolutely love, as does everyone else who had seen it!

Thank you,
Julie Pickering


We love our new kitchen! We were concerned about the size of our kitchen because it is much smaller than we were accustomed too. With your guidance the results are exactly what we were hoping for. Your suggestions to move the appliances made such a difference and the quality of the cabinets is just great. We are ready to start the remodel on one of our bathrooms and we will be contacting you soon. Thanks for everything.

Sandy Rich and Jon Bates


Everything from beginning to end was perfect! Diane was available when I had a question. You are the best designer! I’m so glad I came back to you after using you 20 years ago when building a house. I didn’t even look around, I came straight back to you and AGAIN everything was perfect! Your staff is so pleasant and the showroom is beautiful. I couldn’t have asked for better service. We appreciate (and love our cabinets) everything you did for us!

Sharon Wagner & Denny Cravatta


I had a great experience working with everyone at Kitchens by Diane. My emails and phone calls were always answered in a timely manner. We were impressed with everyone from the cabinet installers , the plumbers, the counter top crew. the tile installers, etc. Everyone was so professional and friendly. We love our kitchen – we receive so many compliments. We would highly recommend your company to others. Thank you!

Reno & Melissa Villalobos


Wouldn’t it be a terrific world if you could buy something, be very pleased with your purchase and fifteen years later be able to have that Company still in existence and able to assist you further? That has been our experience in working with Diane from Kitchens by Diane. Not only did Diane marvelously design, rearrange and transform our farm kitchen, but everything she said would happen did happen with caring and class. Diane really read our desires very clearly and created a kitchen that was far more than we ever expected. Throughout the years, Diane has been available to us as we upgrade again or have to find replacement parts for certain items. Diane’s Company could well be renamed “Caring Service with Quality Products.” Diane treated us as family from beginning to end. What more could you ask for?

Tom & Georgiann McKenna


The overall shopping experience with Kitchens by Diane was the best. We love our kitchen. The pictures on your website show how beautiful and functional the kitchen is now.

Dana & Kathy Buck


I had a wonderful experience at Kitchens by Diane. She was always helpful and easy to contact from start to finish. Everyone I ever spoke with at the showroom was very friendly. Diane was very knowledgeable and knew just what style I was looking for. I’m very pleased with our new kitchen.

Annette Van Landuit


Received many compliments on the kitchen from our Thanksgiving guests. We appreciate all you have done to help make our new kitchen a reality!

John & Terry Halversen


You are a great example of a local small business! We really enjoy doing business with you. Thanks………

Mary and Rich Mandzen


Hi Diane, It’s been a pleasure to get to know you. I enjoyed the whole process, even the coutertop indecision on my part. I’m so glad I have the cabinet style I have and I LOVE the Wellington countertop – such a fantastic product! Everything looks great! I’m going to miss coming in to see you and having coffee but I may stop in occasionally…

Thanks so much for all you did to help facilitate our kitchen remodel. A friend of mine advised me to listen to the designer I chose, and I’m so glad I did. It’s nice to be able to rely on someone who does this for a living and has experience in translating what homeowners want into reality. You certainly did that for me and the results are so worth it. Thanks again Diane.

Christine Freise


The single most complimented feature of our new kitchen we receive is about the cabinets!! While I love the kitchen overall, the cabinets (in close competition with the granite) are my favorite! Way to go, Diane!!

John & Lyn Larkin


We are very happy with how our kitchen functions for our family! It’s always neat when someone stops over that hasn’t seen the kitchen!

Jeff & Debbie Carlson


Thank you! for all you did to make it happen. We’ve received such nice compliments!

Trudy and Dick Reynolds


Thanks, Diane! We love our new kitchen. Working with you has been a wonderful experience. With your guidance, the cabinetry and quartz counter tops are beautiful. You helped create the kitchen we were looking for. We so enjoy the island and looking out our big picture window to the backyard. You are an excellent designer with a personality that is the best. We loved working with you and all your staff.

Mary and Jim Dever


A big, bright, roomy kitchen. I love it. Thanks Diane!!

Thank you!

Harry & Jackie Beach


Thank you Diane for helping to make our kitchen a dream kitchen.

We so appreciated your expertise on the design of our kitchen. The kitchen cabinets are beautiful they go with the style of our house. I can’t say enough about the quality and workmanship that went into these cabinets. We just love the quartz counter top. We certainly appreciate you helping us make sure it matched with our kitchen cabinets. We like the way you designed where to locate our Island. It is so usable now. Dennis and I are so happy we went with Kitchens by Diane. We just want to say thank you and we will highly recommended you to anyone who might ask us where we purchased our cabinets and who designed our kitchen.

Thank You,
Dennis & Carol Davis

P.S.  Dennis and I enjoy the kitchen so much we very seldom go out and eat anymore.


I am loving my new kitchen! It still feels like a dream. The tile looks great, including the horse tile insert.  We wouldn’t change a thing!
It’s been a pleasure working with you. Thank you so much.

Working with Diane on my kitchen remodel was so painless I didn’t hesitate to call her when it was time to remodel my basement living space.
Susan Pomatto


Dear Diane,

This letter is to express our appreciation of thanks for transforming our kitchen into a beautiful, elegant, much more functional kitchen. The design you created for the space we had to work with… was brilliant! Now we just love working in a kitchen that we cannot only be proud of, but enjoy using as well. Our hat’s off to you and your whole staff for making our dream come true.
Thanks for everything,

Walt & Marcia Foley


I am very, very, very happy with the results. The end results far exceeded my expectations!!!!!!!!!!! The guys did a great job with the install of the cabinets…

I will most definitely recommend anyone who listens to work with you. I cannot image trying to do this with Home Depot. I am glad that Kim from across the street decided to work with you…

If any of your clients would like to see a Grabill kitchen and/or the San Domingo finish, you can give me a call.

Monica Primm


Hello Diane,

I finally made it to the house this morning to see the results. I love the look and feel even without the countertops and all the appliances in yet. This time next week the countertops should be in place along with the rest of the appliances and fixtures.

Thank you for your ideas and planning on the design and bringing to life what we discussed…. I am really looking forward to cooking again.

Wendy Behr


Hi Diane,
Thank you for a fabulous kitchen! I just left a voicemail on Karen Blomgren’s answering machine thanking her for pointing us in your direction. Everything is wonderful, and everyone was wonderful to work with. I hope that I can get more business for you in this area; I will try. All of your suggestions were “right on”. I will get pictures to you soon.
Thanks again!
Best wishes,

Marsha Foxgrover


“I told Diane what I was looking for, and what my budget was, and she made it so easy to accomplish my dream kitchen.

I can’t tell you how many people have come into our home and asked about our beautiful cabinetry. Where did you get them? My response is Kitchens By Diane. Diane will do everything she can to make your dream kitchen come true.

She’s prompt, reliable and a perfectionist! Mix that with Grabill Cabinetry, which is exceptional, and it’s a match made in heaven!

If you are looking to design a kitchen, or remodel an existing one, call Diane. Once you speak with her and you notice that she wants to meets your needs, you too will see that she will exceed all your expectations.”

Marsha Manthei


“It was a pleasure working with you on my main bath. You were very timely with your drawings, and if there was anything I had questions about, you got me the answers ASAP. When I wasn’t sure how I wanted something done, you offered a number of suggestions.

You were also a major help in choosing the appropriate color scheme. I absolutely love my finished product and when I am able to redo my master bath, I will be calling you to give me the assistance I need.”

Paulette Suchomel


“Just wanted to take a moment to tell you much we are enjoying our new kitchen. With your expertise and guidance, we finally have a design that is now more functional for our needs and reflects the beauty we envisioned for our home.

All of our friends and relatives are just amazed at the transformation and tell us that it looks like something from a magazine.

Thank you for your help in bringing our dream to a reality.
