ALGONQUIN – Kitchens Express, home of the $9,999 kitchen, opened for business last month in Algonquin.

According to owner Jeff Klimala, Kitchens Express is a one-stop kitchen design company that works with its clients from design through installation.

Dan DeLavergne is the company’s lead designer.

“We stress an easy process for our clients,” Klimala said. “Dan comes to their homes with door samples, a cabinet sample, countertop, sink and faucet samples plus some cabinet hardware. In this initial visit, he measures and designs the new kitchen in the comfort of their own home and gives them a quote before he leaves,” Klimala said.

“Our cabinets are all-wood make in Tennessee – no particle board,” he said. “The initial visit, designing and quote is free of charge. “

A $9,999, 10-foot-by-10-foot kitchen remodel includes cabinets, countertops, cabinet knobs and pulls, sink, faucet, demolition, and installation.

Kitchens Express offers an upgraded package for $12,999, which includes soft-close, full-extension drawers, additional finish and glaze options on cabinets, crown molding on cabinets and upgraded granite selections.

Klimala and his team have more than 35 years of combined experience and 250 kitchens designed and installed.

“Kitchens can be the most expensive room to remodel, and coupled with the challenges a remodel can provide, many people approach a new kitchen project with some fear,” Klimala said. “Our experienced team will relieve those fears by coming to your home to design and draw your kitchen in CAD, help you select materials and provide you with a quote which includes demolition and installation of your new kitchen.”
