As part of a new blog series we would like to introduce and help you learn more about our trusted vendors and suppliers. We have been working with many of these companies for more than a decade and each supplier is a key part of the homebuilding process. We wouldn’t be able to do it without them!
Bethel Kitchen Design has been in business for more than 21 years. Owner Charlie Reiss founded the business after 25 years in the building industry. “Working as a builder I found there was a need for a retailer who carried a better line of high-quality cabinetry,” he says.
After carefully researching which product line to carry, Charlie went with Schrock Cabinetry. His first year in business he sold 25 kitchens! Since, sales have continued to grow, but Bethel Kitchen still upholds its promise to superior customer service and attention.
One of the things Charlie enjoys most is helping ease customers’ nerves about big design decisions. “We really take the time to get to know the customer and give them much more individual attention than you would find at the average retailer,” says Charlie. “We’re also really flexible. We know people work and have families to take care of. We’ll work around your schedule and take a meeting at night or on the weekend.”
“We really take the time to get to know the customer and give them much more individual attention than you would find at the average retailer.”
Between Charlie and his business partner, Celeste, Bethel Kitchen has more than 40 years of combined experience in the kitchen design arena. “We try to paint the full picture of the space so design decisions are easier and less intimidating,” says Charlie. “I have tons of samples – everything from flooring to tile to full Benjamin Moore and Sherwin Williams design centers so we can assist customers in making color selections and make it a stress-free, fun process. Sometimes customers are so thrilled that they hug Celeste and thank her for her help.”
After many years, Bethel Kitchen Design continues to be one of the most important steps along the homebuilding process. Chase Custom Homes is proud to work with Bethel Kitchen Design to make customers’ kitchen and bath dreams a reality!
