About Us
The Thomas Family

Custom Kitchen Solutions was founded in 1999 by Phil and Marion Thomas. What started out as a way to help family and friends remodel their kitchens turned into a family business that has helped thousands of North Carolinians obtain the kitchen of their dreams. We are a family owned and operated business that started in the heart of North Carolina. Our first location was opened in Raleigh. As we continued to grow, we opened 2 more locations in Durham and Cary. What sets us apart from the big box stores, is our excellent service. You will probably never have the CEO of Home Depot thank you for shopping at his store, but Phil or Marion take part in every kitchen remodel always doing the final walk through with you to make sure you are completely happy with your new remodeled kitchen.

All of our designers on staff are certified kitchen designers by the National Kitchen & Bath Association (NKBA). We are fully licensed and insured through the state as are all contractors that will work on your kitchen. If you are ready to start designing your dream kitchen, call us at (919)-KITCHEN for your FREE design consultation.
