About Us

For more than 25 years Santa Cruz Kitchen & Bath has served the Santa Cruz community by bringing designers, construction experts, and clients together.

What began in 1987 as a natural extension of our personal lives and career backgrounds flourished into a thriving group of talented professionals from every facet of the home-remodeling industry. Today we feature premier kitchen and bath products together with design and installation services for the Greater Santa Cruz community and the entire Monterey Bay. By bringing residential and commercial clients together with design and trade professionals, the real advantage SCKB provides is complete coordination of an entire project from planning to completion. From the initial consultation and selection processes, to 3-D renderings and design consultation, through all phases of construction, each step is integrated within SCKB. What this means is a streamlined process, lowering of costs while providing comprehensive management of every detail. Giving you a single point of contact reduces project time while easing project stresses. This also provides greater flexibility inside of SCKB to provide more personalized attention to you and your project goals.

Our Philosophy

With Santa Cruz Kitchen & Bath our philosophy is to be 100% client focused at all times.

We consider it a privilege to work with people on a very personal level while helping to interpret the client’s vision of each design project. Whether it is complex ground-up construction or the simplest room remodel in your home we provide everyone our individual attention and the utmost consideration. What we do is personal, requiring patience and respect for each design to reflect the needs and wishes of its users. Inspiration comes from collaboration, and we love to join together with owners to translate their style into well designed spaces. The SCKB bottom-line goal is to follow the highest standards of professionalism and provide peace of mind as your trustworthy partner. We pride ourselves in an exceptional delivery of customer service and remarkable attention to detail.
