A Few Words From Our Valued Clients…
Anita recently helped us with the long and arduous task of renovating our 200 year old cape cod styled home. She helped us with cabinetry for the kitchen and dining room as well as two bathrooms. We had lived in this home for over a decade and had some very specific ideas about what we wanted but no idea how to do it. We really wanted to keep the historic nature of the house intact but being an avid cook, I of course wanted a fabulously functioning workspace.
Upon our first meeting I had every confidence Anita would produce something spectacular, but she truly went above and beyond. Her design opened the dining room to the kitchen and made the whole space seem 10 times bigger and brighter. We broke the galley-like kitchen into two areas with mixed finishes and she made them flow together perfectly, retaining the warm feel of the older space while making it much more storage friendly. Anita met every one of our requests and delivered on them in a way that brought them all cohesively together. She was endlessly helpful, never upset by any changes or challenges that ensued along the way and was always available to help us figure it all out.
We could not be more pleased with the outcome, it is truly more beautiful and functional than we could have ever imagined and we know it would not have happened this way without Anita's help.

Anita did a fabulous job with the redesign and implementation projects we had! She seamlessly integrated a cabinetry addition to the kitchen, not an easy task! rebuilt and modernized our main floor half bath and rebuilt our master bedroom bathroom into a true "master bath". On the latter she used the space very effectively, had great options to save us money and the end product was spectacular.
My wife and I feel very comfortable giving Anita and Cabinetworks a terrific recommendation and we would happily call them first when our next project stumps us and we need the talents and expertise of Anita!
If you are searching for someone who is extremely talented to design your dream kitchen or bathroom, look no further. Anita Colby, owner of The CabinetWorks will deliver!
Anita has an innate ability to see the end product after only one visit to your home. She really listens to you- your needs, wants and desires for your space, and does whatever it takes to exceed your expectations. She takes pride in creating your kitchen as if it was her own kitchen. She goes above and beyond with ideas, service and due to years of creating custom kitchens and baths, has lots of great industry contacts. The CabinetWorks is truly a full service operation.
We were looking for a unique, timeless design that considered our coastal setting, maximizing both our water views as well as the actual use of our space. Since we eat most of our meals at home, we wanted our new kitchen to be the heart of the home with space for relaxing and entertaining. We also needed to reconfigure access from the garage and to the new dining room. Anita made suggestions that really wowed us! She has tremendous design insight. My advice would be to let her creativity flow. You won't be disappointed.
Anita Colby owner of The CabinetWorks is a genius. She can walk into a room and see what no one else can. She walked into a house that I had just bought in a short sale. It had been abandoned by the previous owners and had a kitchen stripped of appliances and fixtures and a jagged corian countertop island. I asked Anita for renovation suggestions. She asked me a lot of questions to get an understanding of how I cooked, what was important to me in a kitchen and what my taste was like. She went home and at 3 am I received an email from her telling me she had designed a new kitchen and the drawings were attached. It was absolutely incredible I was dumbfounded! She totally listened to me and made my dream kitchen a reality and at a cost that was within my budget. We ended up gutting the original structure and building a designer show house kitchen like none other.
My kitchen has been invited to be on numerous kitchen tours although I have only accepted one and the feedback has been amazing. My kitchen is not only beautiful and unique but totally efficient and user friendly. Anita thought of everything to enable me to cook and entertain like Martha Stewart or Mario Battali! Anita has a gift that you will never find anywhere else. She can look at a space in any condition and visualize the finished product which she professional draws herself to scale. Her kitchen designs are very special and speak to your heart and soul.One more very important fact to consider : Anita has very good connections with high quality vendors and contractors that work hand in hand with her to insure a superior outcome.
Panache Interior Design
The CabinetWorks and my company have had many clients in common over the last 10 years (as I am an appliance salesperson in the area).
I have found the CabinetWorks to be very professional and sensitive the the needs of our clients. The kitchen designs and workmanship display a vision far surpassing many others in the industry.
I am reporting a very thorough and thoughtful experience with this kitchen designer. In addition to the design excellence, the installation provided by The Cabinet Works has proven to be accomplished with perfection and our customers are extremely happy with their finished products.
We have a 100+ yr old farm house that we tore the kitchen out down to the studs.
The CabinetWorks remodeled the whole Kitchen with beautiful Plain N Fancy Cabinets and a center Island of Cherry with beautiful granite countertops.
The attention to detail was awesome and everything fit perfectly down to the corner stove, industrial range hood and pull out cabinet for canned goods.
Our house was also on the Kitchen tour for Exeter that year and we still receive glowing complements any time anyone enters our home.
We love our new kitchen 🙂
Anita is talented and the cabinets/counters are absolutely beautiful. And for that reason I would recommend her. However, I felt there were some areas that need improvement. I would have liked input when the cabinets were being ordered regarding the size and placement of drawers verses cabinets and what is inside said drawers and cabinets. Also regarding glass doors. I guess I didn't understand exactly what was being ordered and therefor I am not completely happy with that particular design feature. Additionally, understanding that these projects often experience delays, it's important for professionals to communicate these delays to the customer.
For anyone about to begin a kitchen renovation, keep in mind, this is your money and your kitchen, so don't be afraid or hesitate to get involved. That was my mistake not The Cabinetworks.
I would and have recommended The Cabinetworks to friends and family. I think my new kitchen is beyond beautiful thanks to Anita.
Anita gave us our dream kitchen! When we decided to remodel our 15 year old colonial with builder grade golden oak cabinets, we approached 3 different designers giving each the same list of wants. The other two designers provided basic designs that a big box store could have done as well. Anita went way outside the box and provided us with a magazine-ready, yet totally functional kitchen. All her subs were first class and our entire project was finished on time.
We are now constructing a new home and are excited to have Anita again do our kitchen.
