Office Cabinets

In 2022, AJ helped me design my dream office using the River Run Cabinetry, Cambridge Series in Onyx. He was very professional, knowledge, and most important of all A REALLY NICE GUY to work with. He even created window seating across a bank of windows in my office, that create a space to sit and read and adds storage. I'd recommend Selective and AJ to anyone looking to create their dream kitchen, bathroom and office.

Thank you for business, and review.

My Review

I worked with AJ in 2013 to design and build our kitchen. At the time, he asked me to write a review, but I was either too busy or too lazy (I can't remember).

So, its 11 years later and we are selling:

and here is my review:

We used Selective Kitchen Design 11 years ago to design and create an incredible kitchen using Shiloh cabinetry. I had an idea of what I wanted, but didn't know how to accomplish my vision. AJ took my plan and turned it into a stunning reality. The kitchen has been the heart of our home for all these years, and has seen much use (and abuse) from our family, including our 3 kids who are now 12, 14 and 16. We are currently selling our house and every prospective buyer was "wowed" by what appears to be a brand new kitchen. In 11 years, there is not a chip, a broken hinge, or any signs of wear and tear. Every cabinet is perfect, and every drawer still has that beautiful soft close. No one can believe that this is an 11 year old kitchen. It is in PERFECT condition. The look is still fresh and modern, and nothing about the kitchen feels dated. Thanks for an amazing job.

Shiloh kitchen Cabinetry

We chose Selective Kitchen Design, because we wanted to use a local company. AJ Malave was our contact there and he is so knowledgeable and helpful! The cabinets were competitively priced and the order came in on time, as he told us. AJ visited our home during the construction and was very helpful to the installers. He was very available during the entire renovation for questions or assistance. The cabinets and counter top are beautiful and we are so pleased with the final results. I would highly recommend this company!

Thank you, it was a pleasure..

Quartz Countertop Replacement

Selective Kitchen Design, reduced our split bar island to counter height. This involved cutting the structure and the wainscoting panels, and upgrading the electrical and plumbing. New quartz countertops were then installed on the kitchen surfaces. The work was done in a very professional manner and we are very pleased with the results.

Thank you, we look forward to working with you again.

Kitchen renovation

What a fantastic design artist AJ Malave is! Love, love, love my new kitchen! After 40 years AJ was able to create a way to fit beautiful new cabinets with modern features into my existing floor plan. I am so happy with my pull-out spice rack, roomy pot and pan drawers and great looking quartz countertop. I could not have refinished my cabinets for the reasonable price of these new ones! In addition, I appreciated that AJ supervised the entire process and answered all my questions along the way! It was wonderful to have what could have been a complicated project run so smoothly. Thank you AJ of Selective Kitchen Design! You truly love what you do...you do it exceptionally well...and it is reflective in my finished product! Anyone who is interested in updating or getting an entire new kitchen should definitely choose to use SELECTIVE KITCHEN DESIGN!

My wife and I met with several kitchen design firms before we decided upon Selective Kitchen Design. We had our entire kitchen remodeled and cannot be more pleased with the final product. I cannot speak highly enough about the personal attention given to us by AJ. He was here for the entire process- gave us additional ideas on the cabinet design, and was meticulous during the punch list process. The cabinets from Ideal Cabinetry are beautiful. We went to the ceiling with them and they were worth every penny.

We highly recommend both Selective Kitchen Design and Ideal Cabinetry

Master Bath

AJ Malave of Selective Kitchen design was referred to us by a neighbor who was totally satisfied with his work. All we can say is thank you to our neighbor for this recommendation. AJ was so helpful throughout the whole design process addressing every one of our concerns. AJ's design suggestions were very well received and were always given with regards to our budget constraints. he was physically present and supervised every step of the construction process. The final result exceeded all of our expectations. thank you AJ.

Kitchen cabinets

He helped design and install our new kitchen cabinets. He has 3 or 4 levels of kitchen cabinet brands to choose from and we choose the 2nd from the top. He was really outstanding. In the first meeting, he gave me a lot information. We meet with about 9 other kitchen cabinet designers and only 2 of them were good. The others were awful and a complete waste of time. Anyways, out of the 3 good ones, his price was the best and he was very knowledgeable. He was always on time, he gave us a schedule that we used for the whole project, he helped make decisions on materials, and was on site as needed. He is professional, reasonable, and easy to work with. Also we used a handy man he recommends and that worked out well too. Project completed September 2015

Kitchen remodel

AJ went above and beyond with revising plans to accommodate our budget. They were on time and very professional. AJ always had our best interest at heart which is a breath of fresh air when dealing with a contractor. He gave us his opinions to help us make the best decision. He was also very helpful with recommending other contractors for parts of the project that they did not do for which our backsplash came out very nice from the guy that he recommended. He only deals with the best. He was with us from day 1 of the project to the end to ensure that everything went as planned. He was also very responsive to phone calls and emails.

Kitchen remodel

We used Selective Kitchen Design for our kitchen remodel. AJ was wonderful to work with, as he was attentive, friendly, and provided us with solutions to help us maximize the usable space within our existing kitchen footprint. He guided us through the entire process from beginning to end, which normally can be quite overwhelming. AJ was able to offer us a wide range of high quality cabinets to choose from, that fell within in our budget. We selected cabinets from the Shiloh brand, which look amazing in our kitchen. They also work with local tile and stone vendors, which have a great selection of tiles and countertops, at really great prices. Overall, we are extremely happy with their service, and we highly recommend them for your next remodel.

Master bathroom remodel

AJ of Selective Kitchen Design did a complete redesign of our master bathroom. He listened to what we wanted and presented several computer designed floor plan options that were better than what we envisioned. After taking us throughout the material selection process AJ provided several pricing options that helped us get what we wanted within our budget. AJ was on the job site for the materials delivery, he worked closely with the contractor during the entire project, he was on site when the vendor came to do the templates for the counter tops and again at the time of installation. We could not have gotten better service anywhere!

It went wonderfully

It went wonderfully – we had some hiccups with our personal contractor and AJ did his best to iron out the issues for us- he provided a personal reference for a new cabinet installer that did excellent work. AJ is a great kitchen designer with integrity and great taste:)
AJ designed my entire kitchen from top to bottom and helped hand pick our new cabinets at a fair price within our budget. He is professional and responsive and very talented – we couldn’t be happier with the service he provided.

Town house remodel

My new kitchen is totally amazing, all thanks to AJ from Selective Kitchen Design. I had an excellent experience working with AJ. He is extremely knowledgeable about his products and he designed a very space-efficient and stylish kitchen for my needs and budget. The complete renovation went very smoothly because AJ stayed on top of all the issues/workmen and kept me well-informed throughout the entire process. He is definitely a hands-on guy. I would highly recommend AJ (Selective Kitchen Design), I love my new kitchen.

Ecstatic with the outcome.

I recently renewed my kitchen using Selective Kitchen design and my wife and I are ecstatic with the outcome. We interviewed several contractors prior to hiring Selective but, after consulting with A.J., we felt that our project would be in good hands. He walked us through the entire process and was present, on site, during the entire construction period. The end result was a beautiful, high end, functional kitchen done in a timely manner with minimum disruption to our lifestyle. I recommend these guys wholeheartedly!

Nothing but praise

I have nothing but praise for Selective Kitchen Designs as represented by AJ Malave. I had new countertops installed in my kitchen and a new vanity (cabinet and countertop) installed in the bathroom. Work was completed in a timely manner. The quality of the work was outstanding. The final costs were in line with the estimates.
