John Dean Custom White Full Access Full Overlay Kitchen

Farmington, Connecticut

What a lovely John Dean Custom, full overlay white kitchen! This beautiful custom kitchen features a sheek, nook seating space with elegant lighting; perfect for coffee and the morning paper or a cozy romantic dinner for two. The hardwood floors, stools and comfy nook chairs add such warmth to this space, with the rich wood tones and green accents. Their contractor Chris Walsdorf, owner of CW Contractors helped to create their dream kitchen; and what a fantastic job he did! Our clients chose all GE appliances for their new kitchen and their favorite feature is the hot water dispenser on the GE refrigerator…2 minutes and done. They also love their GE range double oven in their island. The countertop cabinets with glass doors are so quaint, like you’re standing in a French country cottage. Their quartzite countertops look stunning with their beautiful custom cabinets. The pantry wall cabinet next to their refrigerator is very practical and their large island gives them plenty of room to cook and entertain family and friends. This lovely new kitchen is now the best café in town; ready to serve warm croissants, espresso and a smile!


We had a wonderful experience with Dean Cabinetry and highly recommend them for kitchen, bathroom, mudroom, built-ins, and any other cabinetry project. Dean Cabinetry helped bring an amateur concept that we created to life with a design that was functional and simplistic but comprehensive and stunning. From our initial interview with Jenny to being placed with Paul for the design and construction to the delivery and install team, we were very well cared for. Being unfamiliar with construction and remodeling, we had many questions that ranged from budget to install to technical terms. They were patient and understanding and helped us to understand each stage without ever rushing us or making adjustments to the cost. They walked through the semi and custom levels with us to make sure we understood all our options and at each price point. When we were not able to find the door design we wanted, they created it and it is simply perfect. Paul was tremendously supportive in his efforts to make sure our new kitchen worked for our family’s day-to-day life. He found a way to incorporate our “wants” with our “needs” so that our kitchen, which is open but not necessarily large, is a space we enjoy and use effectively. Our installer, Leandro, and install coordinator, Matt, were patient and thoughtful with explaining on-site decisions such as door adjustments and hardware placement. They also helped rework a challenging situation with a downdraft vent that was incorrectly measured and made sure our design’s integrity was not compromised. The Dean team are true professionals that carry out the value of independent businesses who truly put customers first. They were on time, thorough, problem-solved when issues arrived, and supported us through the largest and most challenging project we have taken on. They are also incredibly sweet and friendly and it is obvious that they genuinely love the work they do and care for their employees. We would highly recommend them and hope to see their business continue to grow.
