The History of Elite Kitchens
The story of Elite Kitchens begins in 1983 with the owner and manager, Mati Kotz. It was in 1983 that Mati began building houses. Over the span of a decade, Mati was presented with several challenges, all of which he was always able to address and solve. After finely tuning his house-building skills, Mati started his own company, Elite Kitchens, in 1993. Elite Kitchens is now over two decades old, with an established reputation to prove it. Elite Kitchens is a “word of mouth” company, meaning that rather than spending money on flashy advertisements, Elite Kitchens relies solely on the quality of its products and services to gain new clients. The lack of advertisement ensures that Elite Kitchens does a quality job on each and every single remodeling project that comes into our hands. We take strides to maintain positive relationships with our clients so that they are satisfied from the very beginning to the very end of their projects.

Leicht Cabinetry at Elite Kitchens
Elite Kitchens carries Leicht brand cabinetry, the top-selling and highest quality cabinetry in Germany. We were the first remodeling company in America to recognize the quality and excellence of Leicht brand cabinetry and begin importing Leicht brand cabinetry straight from Germany. We have been carrying Leicht brand cabinetry for our clients for 15 years, and we are still doing so to this day. As the sole distributor of Leicht cabinetry in the DC Metro area, we’re your local resource for premium European cabinetry. Leicht has consistently earned high scores from the GfK, one of Europe’s leading consumer market research institutes. This association has provided data for the development of the German kitchen market for the past 10 years. Recently, the GfK compiled consumer research data for the period of January to June of 2015 that tracks the sales of many popular German brand premium cabinetry. Leicht scored heads above the rest, with a market share of 6.8% in the sector of kitchen specialists. In comparison, other German cabinetry manufacturers followed with market shares of 2.1%, 2.0%, 1.5%, and 1%. What puts the Leicht brand at such a higher position than all its competitors in the German market is its comprehensive product range, combined with the flexibility to respond to special requests. This makes the wide selection of Leicht cabinetry not only premium and highly-rated but also very respondent to the needs of the consumer. Thus, we choose Leicht cabinetry because of its uncanny ability to provide a unique style that is indicative of the personality of the client.
Q: Can you do additions?
A: Yes, we can do kitchen and bathroom additions.
Q: Do you carry American brand cabinetry?
A: While we specialize in European cabinetry, we do also carry many quality American brands, including Mouser brand quality custom cabinetry. No matter which brand, we make sure that our selection is both high-quality in construction and traditional in design.
Q: Are your products environmentally friendly?
A: Indeed we do! Mouser brand cabinetry is a holder of the environmental stewardship certification from the Kitchen Cabinet Manufacturers Association (KCMA). They utilize environmentally friendly coatings and materials in the making of their quality cabinets. Leicht cabinets use environmentally friendly materials as well, meeting the requirements of emission class E1 to have low emissions of formaldehyde in the manufacturing process.
Q: What does it mean to be a “word of mouth” company?
A: This means that our marketing strategy is simply to rely on traditional “word of mouth” recommendations. We prefer this kind of marketing because it is more honest and helps us to hold ourselves to higher standards. We know that each client is an opportunity to showcase our excellent products and services, and by doing a good job, the word of our clients is all we need. “Word of mouth” marketing has worked for us for 22 years!
Q: What kinds of counter tops do you offer besides granite?
A: We also offer wood and quartz countertops. A wood countertop is great for introducing a natural feel to your kitchen. If you are a fan of function along with style, you can opt to get a butcher block counter top, which serves as a functional cutting board. A quartz countertop is similar to the classic granite countertop in durability, hardness, and beauty. What sets the quartz countertop apart is that it is engineered to be even more durable and less porous. This means that a quartz countertop will last longer and will not absorb smells or bacteria that a poorly-maintained granite countertop is likely to do. Pay a visit to our kitchen showroom to see these lovely countertops for yourself!
Q: How do your consultation services work?
A: You begin by browsing the showroom to get a feel for the products and styles that we offer and to find inspiration for your project. Next, our designer visits your home to get measurements of your bathroom or kitchen. The designer also decides what design options are both most practical and aesthetically pleasing for your space. After our designer has seen your space, he or she will send you a 3-D custom rendering of the new design, complete with cost estimates for each element and a projected timeline for the project. This is where you can work with the designer to perfect your design. When the design is ready, we present it to you in our showroom. If you are satisfied with the final design, we ask for a deposit to begin working on your project. We’re here every step of the way to give you the best design possible!
