Norman McLash has been in the industry for as long as I have, and he has a ton of experience. He understands design.

Some have worked with Affinity Designers on multiple occasions because of the rapport and trust built. Clients inform us about Designers having creative ideas, being willing to go the extra mile, cognizant of a project budget and going out of their way to keep clients informed.

Affinity Kitchens is very easy to work with. They offer several different product lines to suit all budgets. They know how to take care of my clients. I have worked with their Designer, Norman McLash, for 5 years now. He gets all my work. He is a very talented Designer, and he has never led me astray.

It was beautiful. Cathy D, Paradise Valley, AZ

I had an idea of what I wanted, and Tam Newell was able to help me think about functionality. The end result is perfect, as is the quality and craftsmanship. Other companies took my direction, but Tam came up with better ideas, and I appreciate that. I got what I paid for. Everything is beautiful. Paola T, Tucson, AZ

Debbie Miller is a delight to work with. Her creativity, professionalism, and attention to detail is why I decided to use Affinity Kitchens. I value their expertise. Since I didn’t know what I didn’t know, I appreciated that they were there to guide me along the way. David S, Paradise Valley, AZ

All of their employees are smart, professional, and respectful. Affinity Kitchens is my “go to” place. I would use Affinity again without hesitation. I was so impressed that they took the time, and trouble to find my original plans from 13 years ago. They have an eye for design. They are honest and stand behind their products. Their products are of high quality, and they are well priced.

Affinity’s Designer, Theresa, was wonderful. She came by our house to show us samples and was extremely helpful in making selections.

Affinity did an excellent job with the installation. We were doing our kitchen in knotty alder wood, and there was a piece that was lighter than the rest. They replaced it so that the shades matched perfectly. My home looks like a showroom. When I have people come over, they are awed. Tony L, Scottsdale, AZ

I am a Designer, and Mark is the best Cabinet Installer I have ever come across. The General Manager of Affinity Kitchens was great too. He always made sure I was happy. Kayla W, Gilbert, AZ

Affinity is the best at what they do. I have done many renovations before, and I can tell when somebody knows what they are doing. Their Installer, Mike, demonstrates attention to detail, and he got it right the first time. He thought things through, and he involved me in the process. I appreciated his honesty. Cindy R, Scottsdale, AZ

Affinity Kitchens Coordinator, Marco, was very thorough, and easy to work with. He had great communication skills. Their Designer, Ray Kant, followed up a lot.

I am the type of person who is slow to make decision. The Affinity staff took the time. I did not know what I wanted, but I knew what I didn’t want. Beth Martinec helped guide me through the process of choosing options and styles, without me feeling embarrassed. I appreciated it and Beth went over and above in guiding me with cabinet and hardware decisions. Julie R, Minneapolis, MN

Jason K, Paradise Valley, AZ.

Affinity staff went ‘over and above’ the call of duty. They responded promptly. Norman McLash was the was the bright spot of our project. We had a misunderstanding with an appliance store and I could get nowhere with them. We called Norman and he intervened and made everything right. He just smoothed things out for us. Norman wanted to make sure we were completely happy with the result.
Rita V, Carefree, AZ

Our project was done early but a week later, I noticed 4 things that needed to be repaired. I thought they would give me some grief, but they didn’t. They just came and did the work. At the end of the day, it was all good. Affinity’s staff were excellent. They are nice people with great attitudes. Veronica M, Scottsdale, AZ

I have already recommended Affinity to friends. They had wonderful customer service and did everything they could to get the project done right and keep me happy. Even when stressful situations occurred, they dealt with ease and grace. Every inch of the kitchen looks wonderful – it’s rare to find a company that will go the distance they did to complete the work. Alana M, Scottsdale, AZ

We consistently hear from clients who value the wide selection of styles and finishes available at Affinity Kitchens. Clients say the cabinet installation is excellent and matches the quality level of cabinets. A frequent comment is the quality of the cabinets are a cut above what is available from competitors.

Affinity Kitchens is a level above their competition in their professionalism. The quality of the cabinets and the service is commendable.
Marie-Paule S, Phoenix, AZ

Affinity had a host of options available and features we hadn’t thought of. I was absolutely thrilled with the product quality. Their Cabinet Installer, Mike was an experienced craftsman who is detail oriented and he cleaned up. The workmanship was excellent. Barbara S, Phoenix, AZ

Affinity had the cabinet door style that I was specifically looking for. They are very good at scheduling their time and they are very efficient. Affinity Kitchens is definitely on the higher end for quality in comparison to other companies.

Clients say that Affinity Kitchens provides high quality cabinetry and install it with a similar standard, so the result is a beautiful kitchen, bathroom or ensuite.

Debbie Miller was creative and helped us fit what we wanted into the space we had. She was available and worked hard to keep the costs down to fit our budget while giving us what we wanted. Tom F, Scottsdale, AZ

It was a smooth process. The project was on time and on budget and we ended up with good looking product. We are pleased. Mike P, Peoria, AZ

I would recommend Affinity Kitchens because they make the process easy, and they take away a lot of the headaches. It seems that in the construction industry, nothing is on time or on budget but with Affinity Kitchens the project was ‘on time’ and ‘on budget’. Alisha N, Gilbert, AZ

Theresa Franklin was definitely easy to work with. She was kind, patient and went above and beyond. I already have recommended Affinity Kitchens. The cabinets are well made for their price. I love their product and I love my kitchen.

Theresa Franklin was amazing. She was so different from other Designers I have spoken with. She was responsive, and made me feel like a valued customer. She didn’t pressure me either. She returned emails within the hour, even if it was a weekend, or an evening. She showed good follow through. She had great design ideas, and she was easy to work with.

Kathy W, Paradise Valley, AZ - Sep 6, 2019

This is my second project with Norman McLash. I think Norman understood how I wanted to design my home. My other home was completely different from this one. Two different homes, two different styles, and it is important that as a Designer, Norman was able to come up with totally different ideas to suit each home. I had a great overall experience for the second time. I am very happy with the outcome. The product is gorgeous, and the responsiveness of the staff is amazing.

Beth Martinec listened beyond anyone I had ever met, and she was easy to talk to. We had ideas, she listened, and made recommendations. She would stop by if we had any questions, and we communicated through texts and emails, which made it easy too, it saves so much time. I am sure she is quite busy, but you would never know it. She took the time to make us feel like we mattered. The quality, and the craftsmanship of the cabinets were gorgeous. Affinity worked with our budget, and that was appreciated. Most of all they kept their word.

Everything with this project went smooth. Affinity is just as good as they were ten years ago when we did our first project. We got exactly what we wanted. Norman McLash came up with a design that we would not have imagined. I was clear with our budget and Norman delivered on schedule. I will recommend them because of that.

Clearly, Debbie Miller knows exactly what she was doing. She knows the product well and how it would come together and so she provides good guidance along the way. She knows potential issues and could steer us as far as appliance selection. I would recommend Affinity because the service I received was good, the design was thoughtful, the installation was professional and the timelines were met. If I were Affinity, I would want to understand their Supplier’s QC technique as it appears to need some attention.

Affinity staff went ‘over and above’ the call of duty. They responded promptly. The design by Norman McLash is fabulous. He was the bright spot of our project. We had a misunderstanding with Subzero and I could get nowhere with them. We called Norman and he intervened and made everything right. He just smoothed things out for us. Norman wanted to make sure we were completely happy with the result. I have a very functional kitchen and I cook a lot so that is important to me. I also have a very beautiful kitchen, it is like an art gallery. The result is fantastic.
