Brian Binns, the president, brings over 40 years experience to the business as he is the second generation of his family to be involved in the kitchen business.

Our showroom, conveniently located close to the 401, has several kitchens on display. We feature the latest in cabinetry, space-saving accessories, counter-tops and more. At The Kitchen Place we specialize in design. In fact The Kitchen Place has received awards for its designs. Our designers have an eye to detail and colour, and are happy to give advice when needed. We pride ourselves on our professionalism, attention to detail and service. DESIGN At The Kitchen Place, we believe that the kitchen is the hub of the home. People seem to naturally gravitate there. With so many couples working, a great deal of our time spent at home seems to be spent in the kitchen. An attractive, functional kitchen will make the time spent there more enjoyable. One of the most important things is the design. It does not matter how large your space is – if it is poorly organized and badly laid out, it will be awkward to work in. At The Kitchen Place, we specialize in design. We analyze all aspects of your lifestyle and apply them to your kitchen. How many cooks share the meal preparation ? What type of meals do you prepare – intricate gourmet dishes or fast and easy microwave entrees? How many people eat in the kitchen at one time? These and other questions are used as the basis for designing your dream kitchen. Planning a renovation can seem overwhelming. The professionals at The Kitchen Place are there to help you. They will manage as much of the project as you want or as little as you need. The Kitchen Place will bring together an award-winning designer with skilled and licenced trades to ensure all goes exactly according to plan. The perfect kitchen or bath design has many facets. There are a wide range of storage and space-saving accessories to make your kitchen more functional. At The Kitchen Place, your designer will bring together a collection of door styles, finishes, countertops and flooring, with the best layout for you in a manner that brings balance and style to your home. OUR TEAM A kitchen does not become the kitchen of your dreams by itself. It takes the input of many different types of dedicated craftsmen and women to make your dream a reality. Every individual involved plays their part. Our team consists of many different people. There is the first person who greets you in the showroom and takes the time to acquaint you with our product and with what we can do for you. There is the designer who listens to your wants and needs and combines them with their own vision to come up with the perfect design to suit your lifestyle and needs. There’s the driver who delivers your kitchen and the installer who takes the plans and makes them a reality. We work with many different trades who all have a part in the finished product. The flooring people, the dry wallers, the electricians, the plumbers, the solid surface or granite installers, the ceramic tile man, even the office manager who looks after all the myriad paperwork pertaining to your job – they all have a place in making sure that your kitchen becomes your dream kitchen. At The Kitchen Place we feel that we have the best trade people around. They all work together as a team to make your remodelling experience as painless as possible. GETTING STARTED 1. First, visit The Kitchen Place showroom. There you will have the opportunity to meet with your designer, walk through full size kitchen displays, and see products and ideas that range from traditional to the most current trends. 2. At the showroom, the designer will want to learn more about your needs. You will talk about the way you like to use your kitchen for cooking and entertaining, and you will set a realistic budget range that you are comfortable with. Working together with your designer, you will make some tentative selections in wood specie, door style, door finish and counter top materials. 3. Next, you will schedule a visit to your home. A detailed design survey will be filled out at this time with site measurements and information about your decorating style. It is important that we develop a comprehensive Wish List now so the features and items you want are integrated into the design instead of added on afterwards. This helps us design and build the perfect kitchen for your needs – while still meeting your budget expectations. You may download the attached design survey to help you get started by clicking one of these. .doc | .pdf 4. After your designer has completed the design, you will return to the showroom for a complete multi-media presentation and see first hand what The Kitchen Place can do for you. You will see a design created especially for you, with colour top views, side views and 3-D perspectives of your new kitchen. 5. Make any final adjustments to your design and confirm your earlier choices. Your designer may also suggest accent colours and styles for decorating the kitchen and adjacent rooms. 6. Determine how much of the work you wish to do yourself. The Kitchen Place would like to coordinate your whole project but we will do as little work, or as much, as you want. We can deliver a full turn-key product completely installed and ready for your enjoyment, or simply provide you with new cabinets, or anything in between – the choice is yours. 7. The Kitchen Place will provide you with a written contract that details your costs and what work, products and materials you will receive. The contract even includes a hold-back. You don’t pay fully until you are fully satisfied. There are no surprises when you work with The Kitchen Place. The Kitchen Place has been in business for 35 years in Oshawa and we are committed to making you a satisfied customer. Your referral business is extremely important to us. Ask around and see for yourself.
