We live in a 1960s home in Dalhousie which has been well maintained but was in need of an update. Tim Pressey of Ekko Cabinetry was referred to us by a friend with extensive experience in the cabinet business. Our intention was to simply update and replace cabinetry in our existing kitchen space. On his first visit Tim asked what we would like to see in a wish list and then took measurements of the existing kitchen and dining room. The design he came back with was amazing and incorporated virtually everything on our wish list. A wonderful open space was created by removing a wall between the kitchen and our dining room. Tim suggested we add a large and functional island that we never thought possible this feature which includes a recycling/composting drawer ended up being the best, most utilized and practical feature in our renovation. We continued our cabinetry into our dining room and created a stunning hutch wall matching the rest of our cabinetry that provided not only extra storage but also a very attractive showcase feature. We carried our cabinetry up to the ceiling for additional storage and finished it off with a gorgeous crown molding which is much easier to keep clean. For easy access and efficient storage, we included a large number of deep drawers which are all dovetailed wood construction with heavy duty full extension, soft close hardware. Everything arrived on time and the installation team was outstanding the installer (Stan) and installation manager (Rob) worked to complete the job quickly and to our full satisfaction. Fineline Granite (Matthew and Joshua Pressey) followed immediately templating, then installing our new Quartz countertops again. perfect ! We are now able to entertain and enjoy our family Sunday dinners in a great open space capable of accommodating everybody and enabling the little chefs in the family to interact and help out. We now appreciate the difference between a well designed space and simply replacing cabinetry. Our kitchen and dining area is now the best feature in our home and have received many compliments. We are VERY happy with our new kitchen it has exceptional quality throughout, timely installment and within a budget even with the upgrades. We would highly recommend Ekko Cabinetry !!

We completely gutted the kitchen removing a walk in pantry adding extra footage to the kitchen. Everything went smoothly right from the first meeting with Erin to discuss design ideas to the installation of the new cabinets. I would highly recommend Ekko cabinets.

“I had 30 year old kitchen and wanted a kitchen that was more functional for our entertaining needs. The interiors of the cabinets (roll outs and magic corner) were as important to me as the exterior appearance. Rema did an excellent job of measuring and planning the cabinets to accommodate the things that were important to me. Ekko did the cabinets, but we did our own contracting for everything else. Ekko was able to remain on the timeline that they promised. There was one error regarding the size of the island, but they corrected this in a timely fashion and to our satisfaction. Rema designed the island that has received many compliments from our guests. It was tricky to design because of the limited available space and other architectural features, but she anticipated all the needs and it is now the center of our entertaining space in the kitchen. Her advice about color coordination of countertop and cabinets was very helpful. Ekko coordinated with Fine Line for the quartz and time lines were honored. Any time I had a question or concern Rob was always prompt to reply and to keep me in the loop. The installation was done well and workers appeared to be conscientious and did a quality job. I feel like we have good quality kitchen that we will enjoy for years to come.. ”

“Thank you so much Ekko Cabinetry for the wonderful job you did on my Mom’s kitchen. She absolutely LOVES her new kitchen. I would like to specially thank Rema Dixon for her awesome kitchen & powder room designs! Before my Mom’s kitchen was so small only one person could work in it, now you can have the whole extended family helping out with dinner!!! Please visit our page to see before & after pictures. Thanks.”

“The sales staff (Rema Dixon and Scott Hunter) were competent and knowledgeable. Design, measurements and cabinetry ordering from the supplier all proceeded smoothly, and delivery was made when promised. The installer (Rob) was very able and initial installation, replacement of shipping-damaged pieces and after-installation touch-ups were completed satisfactorily. All-in-all both office and site performance by Ekko were exemplary.”
