Because of our past with another contractor, we were skeptical that you would finish in a week. So we were pleasantly surprised when you finished in a week! The entire project –from design to scheduling/delivery to carpentry- went very smoothly and we love the new look of our kitchen and the improved functionality of the pantry. Also, it can be difficult to convey a concept with specific need, but Designer Laura and Master Carpenter Darin brainstormed options with us. Then Darin’s meticulous attention to detail ensured the new wall would support the weight of the accent stone and a larger than expected wall-mounted TV. We couldn’t be happier with the completed project.

Everyone we dealt with was friendly helpful responsive knowledgeable and flexible, but Laura was the lynchpin. We trusted her design expertise and relied on her completely. She patiently helped us sort through all the options and we based our decisions on her suggestions. We were extremely happy that she came to the house frequently to check on the progress and quality of work. Thanks to her we are highly satisfied with the outcome.  The helpful hints on what to expect and planning ahead for the work and the calendar were much appreciated. There were no major problems but we called several times with questions and minor issues, and we got either immediate answers or a call back within minutes from Jill or Stacey with answers and explanations  and resolutions.

My kitchen was a reface, and I put in drawers where I had shelves and doors. Donald and Chris said that we could do drawers and I am so glad I did. They were quite creative in the cabinet design. Timelines were met promptly and small issues were taken care of quickly.

Carol Koehler

I appreciate everyone’s professionalism throughout the process and making my small project feel like a big one. I was extremely satisfied. Thank you!

Patrick Heaney

The kitchen update went smoother than I thought it would. Chris and Jamie were great! I will definitely recommend them to a friend.

Carol Gill

I would absolutely recommend SWKB to a friend. I was very pleased with the time lines. All work was done in a professional and friendly manner, couldn’t be more pleased.

Ginny Elm & George Neff

Laura-The verdict is in: Our new kitchen is a STUNNER, thanks in no small part to YOU! Perhaps the best comment came from one of our neighbors: “This can’t be the same house!” Mary Ann and I had a final walk-through with contractor Tom Stockdale today. What a super skilled and conscientious craftsman! Such a terrific team! Your ideas have been realized in such fantastic fashion! THANK YOU again, Amiga. It’s been a true pleasure working together on this remodel–and how often can one say that?!

Toasting you, Meg

Laura-Please forward this to the rest of the crew there at SW Kitchen and Bath. We are absolutely gaga over the total job done here. I can’t thank you all enough for our new lovely kitchen. You, the installers, Donald and Justin, and everyone there were all so accommodating, professional and pleasant to work with. Thanks again! I can’t wait to have “the girls” over for coffee to show off this beautiful kitchen.

Cheers, Tex and Dennis Flanegin

From the day I walked through your door, greeted by chris with “May I help you?’ I have had nothing but great experiences. It’s been pure enjoyment working with all of you at South West Kitchen and Bath . thank you for the fantastic workmanship and installation. You turned my ideas into a beautiful reality to enjoy for an everlasting time.

Bonnie Roeser

From the moment we walked into the showroom we knew we were in the right place for our kitchen remodel. From the very beginning to the very end of our remodel you were in contact either by phone, email or in person to ensure the total success of our project.

The entire staff at Southwest Kitchen and Bath; as well as the contractor that you assigned to us, has been skilled, knowledgeable, professional, and supportive. Many thanks to Jamie, Jill, Melissa and Stacy for all your efforts; you stayed on time and in budget and gave us the kitchen of our dreams. Your ears must be ringing because we have not stopped telling everyone what a wonderful experience it has been to work with you.

Chris and Don Tracy

Laura-I wanted to tell you how much Bruce and I appreciated your guidance and suggestions as we remodeled the bathroom and updated the kitchen. We appreciated the fact that you listened carefully to our needs as indicated by the suggestions you made to us. We greatly appreciated the creative solutions you offered that we never would have thought about; for example, an extra cabinet, appropriate lighting, and complimentary hardware that all satisfied our requirements.


Rich and I want to thank you for making our kitchen remodel a show place and a joy to work in. It was a pleasure working with Laura and the whole staff at Southwest Kitchen and Bath. It was so nice to have a work schedule so you knew what was going to happen on each day. If you had any questions you would have an answer shortly.

Our old kitchen had only 4 drawers we now have 17 drawers and two Lazy Susan’s so much new space. We are still trying to find things.

Everyone who has seen our new kitchen tells us OMG it should be in a magazine.

When we get ready to remodel our bathrooms there is no question as to who we will call.

We have recommended your company to several friends and will continue to recommend Southwest Kitchen & Bath.

We want to let you know how great our experience was working with Southwest Kitchen and you. We have already mentioned to several friends about how good our experience was and how glad we could do it comfortably with your oversight while we were away.

I would highly recommend Southwest Kitchen & Bath to a friend. The whole organization was caring, knowledgeable and professional – a “family” that envelops the client. Working with designer Chris Maxwell and owner Melissa Elkins was the dream team. They understood the simplicity of my selections and worked the design magic.

Joyce G.

We are so impressed with Southwest Kitchen’s entire staff from design to completion. We have done several kitchen remodels but from Melissa’s design to Kevin’s attention to detail, integrity, work ethic, efficiency, promptness and creativity this was the most well planned and organized experience. You are a magnificent team.

Thank you for making what could have been a difficult time … one that was effortless.

Susan, Marie and Lilli

Chris remodeled our kitchen and 2 bathrooms. She was not only very creative but kept in good and honest communications along the way. Plus we know we had the support of the entire SWK team.

Rene Poiria

We had our kitchen recently remodeled and couldn’t be happier with the results. Laura Wallace did a great job with the design and cabinet selection. Equally impressive was the scheduling of the work and the quality of the tradesmen that came into our home and did the work. The project took one month from start to finish.

The Master Bath is in the early stages of a remodel project and Southwest is our only choice to do this project as well.

Gary Butryn

Char and I want to express our thanks for the superb kitchen remodel recently completed in our home. Before dealing with your company, we had talked at length with two other kitchen remodeling companies but were never able to get the help we were seeking. They didn’t seem to want to listen carefully enough to what we were saying, offered sparse assistance in design and were vague on the cost of the project. We happened by your showroom almost by accident and probably expected more of the same from you. What a pleasant surprise when you took great lengths to listen to our ideas and then by coming to our house to orient yourselves to our situation and offer some really helpful suggestions of your own. We were pleased that we not only received a comprehensive estimate of cost but a work schedule as well, even before a contract was signed.

The work started promptly and continued right on schedule to the final completion of the job. We were pleased with the contractors you engaged for the job as well. We were not greatly inconvenienced during the project and you communicated the process with us on a regular basis. Finally, there were no unpleasant surprises. You accomplished what you said you would, within the timeframe promised and no hidden charges. It was a most satisfying experience.

We hope to work with your company in the future when we remodel our bathrooms.

Kyle and Char DeFoor

From start to finish everyone was friendly and helpful. Worked specifically with Laura, Darin, Bill & Jill. They shared their knowledge, explained our options, answered all our questions, and guided our selections. We were constantly informed and made aware of each and every step involved in our renovations. Thank you for making a complex and at times difficult project a pleasant experience!

Irma & John Wagner

Southwest Kitchen & Bath did a fabulous job on our kitchen cabinets and bathroom cabinets! we were not even in town when they did the work and everything went according to plan! We highly recommend them for your job!

Grace and Dean Berg

The team at Southwest Kitchen and Bath is truly exceptional! From beginning to end they were knowledgable, available, and very friendly. We love our kitchen and give thanks everyday that we found & selected them for our project.

The Bernals

Thank you so much for all you have done for us during our kitchen remodel! It was a huge project that took lots of time, work and planning, but you were there for us every step of the way. You guided us through the entire process and were always able to steer us in the right direction when we needed decision-making advice. Remodeling a kitchen is certainly no small task to undertake, but for us it was SO worth it. Our kitchen turned out more beautiful than we ever could have imagined! We love it and it is a dramatic improvement over our old, outdated kitchen. What a difference this remodel has made to our house! Everything just came together so perfectly and we can’t wait to show it off! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!

Mel and Bob helped me with the kitchen in my brand new house in Tubac. I had already picked Medallion for my kitchen cabinets, and I chose Southwest Kitchens over another local distributer because Mel was much more responsive to my needs. The kitchen turned out great. Mel and Bob quickly dealt with the few minor issues that came up and had their installer come out and level some of the cabinet doors and drawers. I’ve really appreciated their professionalism and caring. More recently, they’ve helped me with some accessories for the bathrooms which have Showplace cabinetry. I guess I’ve gotten so used to working with them, I just can’t stop!

We want to once again thank you for the unbelievable job that you and your crew did in “recreating” our kitchen. It by-far exceeded our expectations and we still can’t believe it is the same kitchen that you started with. The attention to detail and complete professionalism that was shown by you and your staff at the store as well as the crew that completed the work gave us such a feeling of confidence in your work that we never worried about any aspect of the job being completed to our expectations. We look forward to your doing more work for us in the near future and will be talking to you in the fall.
Thanks again for a great job.

Gary and Alison Luster

In March of 2010 we contracted with Southwest Kitchen and Bath to reface the cabinets in our kitchen and guest bathroom. The work was done in a timely and extremely efficient manner. I commend the Installers and the Project Manager for their exceptional work – our kitchen is lovely and we have gotten many compliments on the project.

A satisfied customer, Judy Fairchild

We are so thankful we found Southwest Kitchen and Bath. Mel, Bob and Darin remodeled our kitchen, 2 bathrooms and a laundry room. We can’t even begin to explain how smoothly the project went. They are true craftsmen which is apparent in their attention to details. We are in the process of relocating to Scottsdale and sold our house in 1 day! We truly believe it is due to the gorgeous work done by SWKB. We wish we could take our kitchen and baths with us. It has been a pleasure to work with such incredible professionals. We would do it all again, as long as we could have SWKB!

I love my new kitchen. I went to Southwest Kitchen and Bath with a plan in mind. Chris showed me by moving my appliances I could have more cabinet and counter space. They gave me lots of ideas and worked with me until I had everything I wanted. They gave me a start date and a finish date and my kitchen was finished ahead of time.The installers that did the remodel worked long days and left the kitchen clean at the end of the day. I’m very pleased with my kitchen and couldn’t have had a better team working with me on the design of my kitchen. Thanks to everybody again.

We have had the pleasure to have Southwest Kitchen and Bath (SWKB) remodel our kitchen in the fall of 2009 and our 2 bathrooms in 2011. All three were completed in a timely fashion and we were delighted with the outcome. The SWKB owners and all their staff were very professional, accommodating, and caring. Our SWKB designer, Laura, helped us through all three remodels. Laura saw things that could add extra appeal to our choices, which made our remodel even nicer. The installers/contractors hired or associated with SWKB were also professional accommodating. We are very confident, that if you chose SWKB, you will be a satisfied client.

Don and Pat Pomeroy, Oro Valley

We completed refacing our kitchen and bathroom cabinets in April of 2011. We were extremely pleased with the results of the refacing, but, also with the professional assistance provided to us by the staff at Southwest Kitchen & Bath. From our initial meeting at the design center with Jim Lawrence, through the installation phase with Larry Taylor and his crew, we were provided top-notch service in a timely and competent manner. We were especially pleased with the oversight and help Jim provided us throughout the entire project. Our experience was most pleasant, and, we will recommend Southwest Kitchen & Bath to all our friends and neighbors.

Sharon & Joe, Quail Creek, AZ

Mel and her friendly staff at Southwest Kitchen and Bath represent “Oro Valley’s Finest”. When it comes to professional customer service Mel is the definition! She guided us through the entire kitchen remodel and was attentive to every detail. We initially wanted to reface our kitchen cabinets. However, Mel showed us how we could get new, high-quality cabinets for a very reasonable price. We ended up with a beautiful, functional and efficient kitchen which we LOVE. The transformation was truly amazing. Thanks again SW Kitchen!

Martha and Bill Owen

We contracted for a combination of new cabinets and refacing of existing cabinetry which included a kitchen, bathrooms, laundy room and an office area. To my surprise, Southwest Kitchen and Bath made a large project seem small. From day one, I found the entire staff professional, courteous, efficient and caring. Kudo’s to our Design Consltant, Laura Wallace, who was vey helpful in assisting with suggestions that took a 30 year old kitchen that was dull, boring and well-worn and transformed it into a kitchen that is bight, cheery and gorgeous. I also appreciated her expertise in handling all the details. The installers were always on time and maintained a clean work environment. All issues were handled promptly and with satisfaction. I heartily recommend Southwest Kitchen and Bath and would be happy to use their services again.. Job well done!

Dennis and Pam

I just wanted to take a few minutes to let you know how much Gary and I are enjoying our new kitchen that Southwest Kitchen and Bath updated for us recently. We especially appreciated the smooth operation of the whole
project from the initial measuring to the final backsplash installation.

Everything worked like clockwork, and you made it so easy to make the hard decisions. Setting up vendor appointments and ensuring that all deliveries were made on time really made the renovation experience almost painless. Thank you again for all your outstanding work. We recommend you and your services to all our friends and neighbors considering a kitchen remodel.

– Monica and Gary Graber, Oro Valley, AZ

It has been just over a year since Southwest Kitchen & Bath remodeled our kitchen. The entire kitchen was gutted and Chris patiently worked with us to design the new kitchen, making many suggestions that I would never have thought of. The day of final design, measuring, planning, etc. we had just about the entire staff of Southwest Kitchen in my kitchen making sure everything was ordered correctly. Their Project Manager Suzie coordinated the scheduling of everything with their contractor, from delivery of the cabinets, appliances, granite counters, etc. so that the complete installation went smoothly and on time. A year later we are still so happy that we chose Southwest Kitchen & Bath and we love our new kitchen.

– Joanne & Mark Wheeler, Oro Valley.

Chris Maxwell at Southwest Kitchen and Bath was terrific to work with. She was very conscientious in respecting my budget and maintained communication throughout the entire project. I appreciated her experience which contributed suggestions and input, ultimately refining the ideas I had initially considered.

This was not my first kitchen remodel, but it definitely was the most efficient. From the first consultation with Chris, the project ran like a well-oiled machine: 4 weeks from tear-out to a fully functional kitchen! I’m delighted with the outcome and certainly would recommend the staff at Southwest Kitchen and Bath.

Jan Leuenberger

When selecting a vendor, customer service is our top criteria. Southwest Kitchen and Bath provides outstanding customer service and follow through. If there is any problem with the product, they will work closely with the manufacturer to resolve it to the customer’s satisfaction. The owners, staff and installers are all a delight to work with!

Vic and Joy

Kudos to Southwest Kitchen and Bath for a job well done. My home had an adequate, functional and boring 15 year old kitchen. But now I can say I have an adequate, functional and BEAUTIFUL kitchen. From design to minor details, I was impressed and delighted at each and every encounter I had with the entire team, from my walk-in beginning, throughout the install and the finishing touches. The work was done exactly on schedule and the install team maintained a clean workspace throughout the job. I enjoy working in my new kitchen – and relaxing in my new window seat (an opportunity I would have missed without the keen eye of my designer). After seeing all that it takes, I would recommend that one never attempt this project on their own. But I especially recommend Southwest Kitchen and Bath if you want to have a successful and polished outcome. You can leave all the details with these professionals.

K. Shapiro

We have thoroughly enjoyed working with Southwest Kitchen and Bath. The communication between our designer Laura Wallace, their contractor and ourselves has been excellent. There were no surprises, no unexpected costs, and no unwarranted delays. Their commitment to having our kitchen back in working order as soon as possible was impressive. We have had other remodeling done, but we have never had it run as smoothly and efficiently as we did with Southwest Kitchen. We highly recommend them and will use them for our upcoming bath remodel in the future!

We now have a beautiful kitchen that functions much better than we could have imagined. Mel and Bob listened to our requests and made certain that all details were fulfilled. Most importantly, they stayed within our budget. We couldn’t be more pleased.

Paul and Betty Craven

Southwest Kitchens was great to work with. Not only were they very helpful in selecting style and materials that we love, but they took charge of the all installation and any questions we had, making it very easy for us. We look forward to contacting them when we are ready for our next project.

Changing the footprint of this kitchen allowed for a much more efficient space plan . Medallion cabinetry in Rustic cherry-pecan stain and upgraded countertops using a quartz product called Cambria in Sutton really updated this remodel. Designed by Laura Wallace

How we did it: Updates to this kitchen included Removing the soffits to accommodate taller wall cabinets and addinga dramatic light bridge over the sink area. We also took out the old oak cabinets and put in new Maple cabinets with a Hazelnut finish from Medallion Cabinetry-we changed the footprint only slightly by making the island bigger to accommodate a recycle center and adding more space at the desk. Designed by Mel Elkins and Jim Lawrence.

Clients often wonder how we can improve on the existing space. This kitchen is a good example: even though the foot print was basically the same, the old kitchen had only 4 drawers and cabinets with half-depth shelves. The new kitchen has 17 drawers, two Lazy Susan’s, a pull out trash, tray dividers and variety of storage conveniences to maximize the efficiency of the space.

Peggy & Art

We upped the style quotient of this kitchen by using clean-lined cherry cabinets, adjusting appliance locations, adding a decorative hood, installing a full-height glass tile backsplash and granite countertops. The result is a more functional and aesthetically striking kitchen.
