Client: Donald R., Architect
Project Date: January 2023
As an architect I had very high standards when it came to selecting a company to help me build a new kitchen for my own home in Greenwich. After interviewing several candidates I felt Bob Blanco of Shore & Country Kitchens was the best choice for the job. My choice proved correct! Bob was a wonderful collaborator to work with—patient, even-tempered, highly knowledgeable, and with a superb design sense. Together we came up with a scheme that I feel is not only handsome and fully thought-out but also an imaginative departure from the more conventional design trends that dominate the industry today. Importantly, Bob is as sensitive to project pragmatics as he is to aesthetics. Projections for project delivery timelines proved one hundred percent accurate. Budgets were clear, record-keeping precise, and correspondence timely. His follow-through and site coordination during construction were equally well-executed. I cannot say enough about him and his company—highly recommended!

I cannot say enough positive things about Bob and Courtney. Undergoing a kitchen remodel is overwhelming, and there are so many decisions to make. I felt supported and heard throughout the process. Whenever an issue would arise, Bob was always responsive and handled it with aplomb. His guidance in the details of the kitchen made all the difference in the end product. We love our new kitchen!

It’s no small thing when you decide to take on a major remodel, and doing it during a global pandemic??!! Talk about a new level of coordination, customer service and sincerity!
We are so grateful and fortunate to have Shore & Country Kitchens and Bob Blanco as our lead designer and pandemic-project manager! Our plans were completed in February and we launched our demo on March 9, 2020 the week before our new ‘covid world’. Needless to say, the uncertainties surrounding all of our lives were consuming. However, in the midst of all this, every step of our kitchen remodel remained attended, supervised, and professionally managed with abundant consideration, concern and poise. Every question was immediately answered, any changes due to covid alterations from distributors were conveyed and the project remained on track through installation. That alone was Herculean, but I also have to express my elation with the outcome of the design! With a one hundred year-old house, we were seeking a modern, sleek, a little bit industrial design vibe that would meet our NY style. Boom! Shore & Country landed it! Innovative and different, the new modern kitchen meets the historic elements of the house in a wonderful blend and celebration of styles. We are overjoyed and grateful!

I cannot say enough about Bob. He is professional, personable and truly cares about the client and the project. He was extraordinary to work with, talented, creative, has a real vision, extremely detailed oriented and responsive. He transformed our kitchen in a way that I did not know was possible. He blends functionality with beauty, and made decisions easy with presenting thoughtful options. Most importantly, Bob listens to what your needs are and what you envision. Our entire experience was top notch. Would highly recommend and trust him. Exceeded our expectations.

Originally interviewed 3 designers and ultimately chose Shore & Country Kitchens. Bob offered the best design for our kitchen, cabinet choices we were looking for & also acted as the GC. The lead contractor Dave was a pleasure to work with, patient, knowledgeable etc. The electricians and plumbers he used for the job were also great to work with.

It was an absolute pleasure working with Bob. He was always professional and personable and designed the kitchen to take advantage of the small space that I have. He was able to open up the space leading into the hallway to give the appearance of a larger kitchen. The cabinets are beautiful as is the quartz countertop (no seam!). I couldn’t be happier with the result. I would rate Bob and Shore & Country Kitchens 5 stars.
