Who We Are
Who We Are
Sleepy Hollow Custom Kitchens is the premier designer of custom-crafted luxury kitchens for some of the most prestigious homes in Scarsdale, Chappaqua, Briarcliff and other Westchester towns. As a family-owned business, we have been creating kitchens for over 55 years in Westchester County, with a passion for good design and attention to detail.
We are not simply a "kitchen shop." We realize the choices of cabinetry, appliances and surface materials can be overwhelming. At Sleepy Hollow Custom Kitchens, we know that your kitchen, the center of your home, is a very special place. Our design process is unique every time: no two kitchens in our portfolio are alike. Our personal attention to every detail in kitchen and bathroom design ensures your individual needs and concerns are understood. Our highly detailed, hand-drawn plans reflect collaboration between our designers and our client. At Sleepy Hollow Custom Kitchens we are not satisfied until you are.
Westchester is known for unique homes. Whether your home is contemporary, classic or historical, it is the most important one in the county to you and to us! Your ideas and your space will present unique design opportunities. Sleepy Hollow Custom Kitchens works with you in designing every aspect of the room from floor to ceiling. That includes layout, lighting, color choice, wood, hardware, tile, and appliances.
Every good design begins with a full understanding of your space, your lifestyle and your needs and desires. When you visit our showroom at 42 River Street in Sleepy Hollow, we'll sit down together to explore ideas, and our designers will begin to learn about you and your home. This is a great time to bring all the decision makers, along with any photos, clippings, and samples you might have collected.
We specialize in integrating the complete interior design. The little touches that bring the whole picture together! We can even include artwork choices. We will actually go to the store with you, assisting you in finding your way through the many styles and options. The importance of lighting in home design is usually overlooked, and chronically under-appreciated. At Sleepy Hollow Custom Kitchens, we know that light does so much more than provide for working areas. Correctly illuminating your dream kitchen brings it to light and to life! We won't rest until we have an integrated design plan that complements your home perfectly.
Our Cabinetry does not come from a cookie-cutter factory. We contract directly with an heirloom cabinetmaker in Lancaster County Pennsylvania. Your cabinets are built only for you, for your home, designed and built to your specifications. We are in constant contact with the manufacturers to ensure your design and production will be exactly as specified and of the highest quality.
Surface materials are more than an accent in your kitchen. They define the character and style of the space. Collaborating with you, Sleepy Hollow will integrate this choice with the overall design. Whether granite, marble, zinc, copper, stainless steel, or concrete, Sleepy Hollow will ensure the smooth, inviting and working surfaces so your kitchen will be visually and functionally perfect.
At the end of our initial meeting, after we've explored all the design choices and know what you want, we can give you a preliminary budget. Then, if you'd like to proceed, we'll send you a retainer agreement, based on the scope of your project.
Once we have your retainer, we will continue with a visit to your home. There we experience the feeling within your unique home; we listen to your own vision and ideas for that living space. Our designers measure and analyze your space, and discuss the options available. This personalized planning survey gives us the field measurements and design input we need to create your final drawings.
After this, we'll take you shopping for appliances and teach you everything you need to know about dishwashers, ovens, refrigerators and more. Once we have your selections, we will develop drawings with floor plans, perspective drawings, elevation and suggested lighting.
Our designers will then take you shopping for granite, tile, lighting, flooring and plumbing fixtures, as well as help in selecting your paint colors. We'll also assist in sending the final plans out to bid to several contractors, after which a final cost analysis will be done. In other words, we like to get involved in every detail of the design process.
When we return to the showroom at Sleepy Hollow Kitchens, we'll have a clear pathway to work together, reviewing what we've collected and going forward together to create your new kitchen! As the premier custom kitchen designer in Westchester County, Sleepy Hollow Kitchens is proud of our individual attention to detail and our client-based approach. Our passion is great kitchen design and a satisfied customer. The day the work is completed and you walk happily into that kitchen, we know we've done our job right!
