Our Story

Custom Design Kitchens, the vision of Terry Zarrillo, began while he was making furniture in his neighbor's basement for family and friends.

In 1978, Terry and soon-to-be wife Dawn opened their first kitchen showroom in Schenectady while renting a space in his friend's cabinet shop.

Five years later, the company's growth resulted in a move to a bigger location in downtown Schenectady. At that time, Terry’s brother Pete joined the team and has supervised the workshop ever since.

In 1999, Custom Design Kitchens built and moved into its present location in Princetown.

“Reputation Built On Recommendation" 

Custom Design Kitchens has built its stellar reputation and repeat clientele upon years of adhering to the company's core values: providing clients with quality furniture and cabinets built to last, using premium materials, and incorporating unique designs tailored specifically to each client's needs.

In addition to their handcrafted custom cabinets, Custom Design Kitchens also offers Greenfield semi-custom cabinets by Corsi and Shiloh factory cabinets.

These two factory lines allow Custom Design Kitchens to provide cabinets for kitchen, bath and other room spaces in shorter timeframes and more accommodating budgets.
