Testimonials

“For the last 10 years, my wife was asking for her new dream kitchen. We asked our trusted contractor Mike K. for the best kitchen designer in the area.  He recommended a couple of kitchen contractors but indicated that Kuche+Cucina designer is the best one in the Bergen County area. We called the owner, Amir Ilin, directly and dealt with him during the whole process.”

“We have used Küche+Cucina three different times, having moved around and needed to redesign three kitchens. We have been extremely impressed with the level of professionalism, workmanship and consistency in delivering on what was promised. And most importantly, we ended up having kitchens that were state-of-the-art both in terms of their looks and functionality.”

“As an interior designer specializing in high-end luxury homes, Amir at Kuche Cucina is my go to guy. He understands my clientele, he has the best variety of cabinetry styles along with fixtures, sinks, shelving, and anything I may need to design a truly beautiful and functional kitchen. What I appreciate most about Amir is that he is an honest man. I know the industry well and it’s hard to come across professional, honest, creative, smart and reliable vendors like Amir. I’m so glad to have found someone I can continue to transform and build new kitchens with. His sense of humor keeps the process fun as well.”

“Küche+Cucina’s products are of the highest quality. Very responsive customer care, out of the box thinking and on time delivery. Küche+Cucina performed to very high level of satisfaction for one of the most challenging interior design projects in NYC: The Plaza Hotel, by providing over 180 complete kitchens and over 280 wardrobe closets for the luxurious guest suites. The interaction in the process was very personable and helpful. I will certainly work again with Küche+Cucina”

Architect, New York City, NY

“We couldn’t have been more pleased with our experience with Amir and the entire Kuche Cucina team. Our kitchen is beautiful and we’re absolutely thrilled. From design, through installation and follow-up, they were extremely professional and accommodating. The install team did an outstanding job. Their attention to detail, including the way the square molding corners came together and their absolute perfect placement of the island, really impressed my husband, who is a real stickler for detail. The whole team really went out of their way to be sure we were happy. We would recommend them in a heartbeat.”

Being a construction manager, I have worked with Amir at Kuche Cucina for years.  I recently had the pleasure of doing my own kitchen with them and it was as wonderful experience as the homeowners I work with have said.  He and his staff provided professional service and innovative ideas to create a dream kitchen for me and my family.  The knowledge and variety they offer is second to none.  Thank you!
