Our clients say it best, and we love making them this happy.

"We are an interior design firm and worked with EKD on a recent project in downtown Denver. Everything was planned to perfection, from our initial meeting to the final day of installation. We worked with Paul. He is an extremely knowledgeable designer and worked out every single detail to create a flawless kitchen.The quality of the cabinets, functionality, and lighting, exceeded all of our expectations. Paul went above and beyond for our project and we couldnโ€™t be happier! We highly recommend EKD."

"This was not the first custom kitchen that I have done therefore I had very high expectations and EKD didn't let me down. From the moment I walked into the show room and met Scott Grandis he exceeded my expectations with custom service. He made it easy to choose EKD for my new home in Denver Colorado. From picking cabinet finish to detail kitchen design-function to the final installation was a seamless project. EKD coordinates everything from appliances to counter top install and follows up after to make sure everything is up to your liking I can highly recommend EKD for your kitchen experience. Amazing team!!!"

"I have done two remodel projects with Mikal Otten at Exquisite Kitchen Design (ekd). The initial phase was in preparation of a kitchen/family room/conversation room remodel which would involve the entire first floor of our home. Phase 1 was everything except the kitchen area. The first project was so beautiful and exactly what I was hoping for, it was easy to move to the second and final phase, the kitchen. Our new kitchen flows into the family room, conversation area and eating space, physically and visually. The new kitchen is what I would call a true professional - working hard, but making it look easy!

Our designer, Mikal, was really wonderful. He listened to our hopes for the finished space, included these in the final design, as well as adding some interesting and helpful finer points. This attention to the kitchen remodel is what makes our kitchen so easy to be in - entertain family and friends, cook holiday feasts, canning an exceptional harvest, it goes on and on. We can ramp up the activity or slow it down for a relaxing evening. The product recommendations which include cabinetry, hardware, countertops, appliances and lighting all combine to create the perfect kitchen and home for our family.

I would and have recommended ekd to friends and family. Our experience has been delightful. We loved the process and the end result."

"I worked with Marcus Otten to remodel our Boulder kitchen and the final project was outstanding. Marcus really listened to what we wanted in a kitchen and his design and vision went beyond our expectations. We really love to cook and entertain and our new kitchen is both function and beauty."

"Marcus Otten was fabulous! We are not his typical clientele and he still gave us the red carpet treatment. He came up with a design we never even dreamed possible. Everything was delivered on time and better than we could have imagined. He is a first class designer and answered all of my questions ( there were a lot) promptly. Highly recommend him."

"I initially found EKD here on Houzz, as I really liked every design from them I saw on the site. Not only have I been enormously impressed with their customer service, but Marcus is also one of the best designers I could have hoped for. He knew what would suit my lifestyle better than I did, and was very respectful and helpful about what I wanted and what would work best for the space. He helped assemble a wonderful team to implement the design, and I could not be happier. The kitchen is FABULOUS and I can't even begin to say what a great experience this has been. He has also created an outdoor kitchen area (with a pizza oven!) that will be an entertainer's dream for years to come. These spaces are not only beautiful, but also functional and integrate well with the mid-century aesthetic of the house. I cannot recommend them highly enough."

"EKD did an outstanding job on my kitchen. Creative perfection would be the words I would use to describe them. Scott my designer was professional, experienced and always with a attention to detail. Very easy to work with.

Save yourself a lot of time and just go with EKD. They truly are the best in Denver. Their installers are also the best!! I love my kitchen and feel very fortunate to have had EKD do my kitchen."

"Melissa Fitzgerald is fabulous!. We worked with her to redesign and rebuild the kitchen, family room, laundry room and master bathroom. Melissa patiently walked us through each step. She provided great options after carefully listening to our goals. Melissa took ownership of the project, spent a lot of time on site and stayed involved quarterbacking every step. Melissa was quick to remedy issues and coordinate corrections We could tell from the beginning that Melissa wanted us to LOVE our new kitchen - the EKD product coupled with her design eye and commitment to great service helped us achieve the result we were looking for - WE LOVE OUR NEW KITCHEN!"

"As the owner of Dolins Design Studio, with my office in Aspen Colorado for 40 years, I moved to Denver 6 years ago. I had done a few jobs in Denver and with the need for a Kitchen Designer, I was recommended to check out EKD in the Design Center. Happy I did and met the designer Marcus Otten. I could not be more pleased, Marcus was very professional and worked well within my guide lines and budget. I took him to Snowmass where I was doing a total remodel, he came up with a great design and it was done on time within my budget, and best of all my client loved the end results."

"I have done two more projects here in Denver now,ย Marcus once again showed his design skills and designed two more Kitchens and a bathroom. Because of his expertise and the professional way he presents himself, it made my job so much easier having happy clients helps to make me look better too as well as the project runs smooth. I tell my designer friends when they need a Kitchen or Bathroom to check EKD out, they are top notch."

"We worked with Melissa and had an absolutely seamless experience from start to finish. The process was easy and the results were more gorgeous and well planned than I could have imagined. We have done tons of these projects and never have had the service level or expertise that matches what EKD brings."

"We used EKD for our whole house remodel. We worked with Marcus and Mikal and ended up with my dream kitchen and bar, and three bathrooms that are absolutely beyond! From the initial design meetings, to installation (and follow up), we got nothing but perfection and professionalism! We love these guys, and highly recommend EKD!"

"As a lighting consultant, I have the opportunity to work with so many professionals in parallel fields. Mikal Otten is up to the challenge of working with us to integrate lighting into his projects in a way that is incredibly clean and timeless. Mikal's kitchens combine function and aesthetic in a spectacular fashion. Mikal is a team player with the experience and horsepower to take on projects at the highest level. I've really enjoyed working with EKD and look forward to our continued relationship. I would recommend EKD to anyone looking for a kitchen integrates the highest in quality, functionality and creativity."
