One fan of the company publicly wrote, “HU-734693108 When we needed a complete kitchen renovation we went to Curio. Frank was completely awesome for our project. He was able to come up with a design flow that totally changed our kitchen and made it work perfectly. All of his suggestions were great, he was not pushy or over bearing, he gave us many different options and allowed us to choose our colors, textures and finishing colors. I would encourage any and everyone to visit Curio. You won’t be disappointed! Lisa Taylor We are extremely pleased with the design, quality, craftsmanship and service we received with Kitchens by Curio. Will be hiring them again to remodel our bathroom.”

Another fan of the Nataloni publicly wrote, “ Yo Dion Kitchens By Curio designed and installed my kitchen cabinets over 8 years ago. They did a beautiful job. A month after the install, we ran into a problem where the cabinet doors shrank and left wide openings between the cabinet doors. Here it is years later and they dealt with the manufacturer and we got the job covered under warranty. The cabinets look beautiful again. They are top on my list for any future remodel jobs. Paul Adkins We hired these guys to do our complete major kitchen renovation. You get the complete package with them. They managed the design, demo, and renovation. They are extremely capable, confident, organized, knowledgeable, creative, & honest. A project like this can be overwhelming, yet they stream lined the schedule by making you aware what needs to get done, picked out, etc by certain dates. Our project required the removal of walls with structural considerations, new flooring, cabinets, appliances, plumbing, granite tops, tile, & electrical. They handled and coordinated every little detail. We found them, as well as the people they use to get the work done, very professional and receptive to your needs. There were a couple of times we requested changes and they would respond immediately and with great empathy for your concerns. They emphasized through the entire project that we needed to be happy. This huge project was basically done when they said it would be…within 4 months. If you want it done right & with attention to details, Curio is the way to go. You can’t go wrong.”
