When my wife and I first purchased our new home and we're looking to completely gut the kitchen, it was only by happenstance that we happen to meet Dave. We saw the sign on his building and seeing as how we had already been to a handful of other kitchen cabinet places, including a big box store in town, we decided to check him out as well.
Right off the bat, we were comfortable. We were laughing together and having a good time. My wife and I both agreed that this guy seems to be honest, candid, and we would be more then simply a cheque to him. Little did we know that not only would he help us with the design, but he would be here overseeing it while his installer was doing the work and he even checked on things a couple of times after the installation had taken place to be sure we were happy.
We were so grateful with the work that Dave has done for us, that if any of our friends or family ever even mentioned the word renovation, I immediately let them know about Dave and VIP Kitchens.
What I recommend this company to anyone else? Not only what I, but I have, and I will continue to. He is a wealth of knowledge, keeps conversations casual and friendly, and genuinely seems to be more interested in making sure the customer is happy over walking out with money in his pocket
Thanks for everything you have helped us with, Dave.

Dave Burrows at VIP Kitchens provided us with friendly service and was easy to deal with, would not hesitate in recommending them for any kitchen renovation.
Have no complaints about their product or service.
We purchased kitchen and bathroom cabinets from Dave Burrows in 2015. Dave was very helpful in our quest to achieve our desired kitchen layout. We just wanted to order the cabinets flat stock and assemble the kitchen ourselves. He gave us the same care and attention as if he was designing, assembling and installing the kitchen himself. We picked up the many boxes at his shop on time and assembled and installed the kitchen. There were no missing pieces or surprises. Everything fit perfectly. The cabinets we purchased were his “low end” cabinets as they were for a cottage. They are solid wood (no particle board at all) and look beautiful. When we tell people the price we paid, they are blown away at the price and quality of our “low end” cabinets!! We also ordered our countertops from Dave. They too arrived on time and fit perfectly. I recommend that you add VIP Kitchens to your list of comparable companies when shopping for your new kitchen. This was our 4th kitchen renovation and I certainly wish I would have heard about Dave and VIP Kitchens for our other high-end custom cabinets. We would have saved a lot of money.
It has been just over a year since I had my kitchen renovated by Dave Burrows at VIP Kitchens. I am as pleased today as I was when the kitchen was first completed. I have maple shaker cabinets and they are excellent quality. The soft-close doors/drawers are a godsend. I opted for drawers for the base cabinets or cabinets with pull out drawers - no more pulling everything out to get the item from the back of the cupboard. I am especially pleased with the corner lazy susan cabinet as the lazy susan is on a shelf. I am able to store large cutting boards vertically on the shelf without disrupting the function of the lazy susan.
Dave was instrumental in the kitchen design. My home was built in 1974 and the codes had changed since then. The placement of the refrigerator in the original kitchen left too little space between it and the doorway. We moved the fridge back a couple of feet and put a cabinet beside it. This allowed for more space at the doorway and gave me counter space on both sides of the fridge. The kitchen design has opened up the area and increased the functionality. The island makes a great work surface for baking and entertaining.
I was also able to coordinate the counter and cabinet hardware through Dave.
Dave stopped by frequently to check on the progress of the installation and to ensure I was satisfied. Dave has done 3 kitchens in my area and I have no hesitation recommending him to anyone wanting to redo their kitchen or to add to a new home.
Good service, work and results deserves to be recognized and commended.
Pat and I hope you can use our comments as a testimonial from recent customers who were WOWED by by service beyond expectations.

Thanks Dave from very satisfied customers who will think of you and your crews often as friends while enjoying our new kitchen.
