"After months browsing through multiple magazines and hundreds of photos, we decided to take the plunge and get our kitchen and adjacent utility room remodeled. The result was far better than anything we had seen in the photos and truly exceeded our expectations. Our secret? We contracted Austin's premier architect and remodeler, Phil Rudick, of Urban Kitchens and Baths.
"When we first went to Phil, we were reassured by his calm and confident demeanor and by the attention he paid to our desires and concerns. We wanted to modernize and beautify the space while maintaining some of its native charm. We decided we wanted to keep the funky, unique, angled upper cabinets and add new cabinets on the bottom. Tying new cabinets to the existing ones and blending the the new with the original was a real challenge. Thanks to Phil's creative genius, they now co-exist wonderfully.
"Phil created much better function and access for the kitchen and Wine Bar/utility room. He created spaces for everything without adding on or making major structural changes requiring walls to be moved. He suggested wider, more comfortable doorways joining the kitchen, living and utility rooms that work beautifully. He integrated the original ductwork into the design.
"Phil challenged us to be creative and championed our vision and ideas, guiding us step by step, from initial design to final blueprints and through the painstaking remodeling stage, explaining every phase, taking our calls, coming to the house to solve the inevitable problems that came up. Crucial to the success of our project was Phil's recommendation of Austin Custom Remodeling, a first class contractor, with a network of master carpenters, electricians, plumbers, painters and floor installers. The entire team abided by one guiding principle, which was Phil's basic philosophy: They were not satisfied until we were satisfied. Phil made our dream kitchen a reality!" — Marcela Contreras and Fernando Albornoz
“We couldn’t be more pleased. Phil was incredibly easy to work with. His extensive knowledge of kitchen design, creativity, and concern for our budget added immeasurably to the success of our project. We are very pleased with the quality of the cabinets and installation and particularly with the furniture quality factory finish. Phil kept us informed about the progress of fabrication and installation and worked successfully to dovetail cabinet installation with our schedule to finish the house. We would recommend Phil and Urban kitchens and Baths to anyone contemplating a kitchen or bath project.” — Jim Robinson, Architect
