Don - just wanted to drop you a short note in appreciation for the wonderful work by your staff in support of our recent kitchen remodel. The design by Lacey was just perfect and really utilizes our new space in addition to looking great. We could not have done this project without her. She stood by us through the entire thing and responded to our every need. You are lucky to have such a talented designer on staff.
Kirsten helped us make the right choices in appliances and got us the best deals possible. We love them all. Thanks to you for the personal tutorial on the Bosch - it works like a charm. Kirsten was able to get me a copy of the user guide for future reference.
Everyone on your staff is friendly and helpful, from the guys who delivered the appliances to you, the boss.
Mike joins me in thanking you so very much forour great new Kitchen Aid refrigerator!!
Your willingness to "make it right for the customer," is the reason we will continue to purchase any appliances from Almvigs!
Your response and sense of fairness, in such a timely manner, exhibited excellent customer service, something we are thankful for, and something that is hard to find these days!!
Almvigs will continue to be highly recommended by our family!
Mike and Joanie
You all know how much Megan, Miles and I like to cook. Well, after 9 years of an ugly old white GE electric range and matching ugly microwave, we finally bought a new all gas Wolf range and Faber hood. With every sort of delay it took three months to get the gas lines installed and inspected, but we "lit the pipe" today!
French pastry ho!!!
Terrific! These appliances not only look good - they work so well.
That drawer dishwasher I'm using every day - it's great! The
refrigerator is plenty roomy and very quiet. Haven't had time to fully
explore the stove, but that's next. The KitchenAid user guides are
well written and easy to understand, too.
I see why Alvig's has such a good reputation - you deal in quality
products. I'm so glad I didn't go the Home Depot route.
I’m writing to express our appreciation for your help and support right from the beginning. Almvig’s has been the greatest with respect to prices and service far surpassing anything in our rather extensive past experience, having previously built two new homes before this one.
We purchased and you delivered exactly as promised and on time our total Gaggenau kitchen, pantry and kitchenette. This includes a very long list of appliances that we chose with your guidance and support. The inevitable glitches and hitches always got your immediate and responsive attention.
We lucked out with you and Almvig’s and we’re glad to say so!
It has been almost one year since our remodel was completed and we love our new kitchen and appliances (Dacor and Wolf) more than we ever anticipated.
Our designer, Lacey, did a great job, offering creative ideas for cabinets and tile. Our older kitchen was a challenge, and she rose to the occasion with a layout that works perfectly.
The pricing of our appliances was very fair, and the cabinets and appliances were delivered by Almvig's with perfect timing and care.
We live in Edmonds. If you do visit Almvig's and would like a customer reference, they will have our information because our kitchen is on their web site.
This review is unsolicited, I can assure you -- just passing on the good word.
I want to thank you for doing an excellent job of facilitating the completion of our kitchen. Your knowledge and professionalism was greatly appreciated and helped make a difficult task at least palatable.
There are no perfect solutions, but you always found a way to appease us and did your utmost to rectify any problems that came about. You did so with humor and patience and I sincerely applaud you and thank you for this.
In addition, your recommendations on the appliances proved to be accurate. I will be grateful each time I use my Wolf, Asko, Sub-Zero and look at the beautiful Independent range hood against Randy's brickwork.
Thank you again Ken.
Just wanted to thank you for your outstanding customer service. Your efforts saved us hundreds of dollars, and we wanted to let you know it means a lot to us.
I’ll be sure to recommend your services to all of my clients.
Thank you for all of the attention and support you gave me in working through our Bosch dishwasher problem. I so appreciate all of your help and advice. The new machine is working like a charm and the problems with the other one are fading from my memory.
Your kindness and concern will not be forgotten. You have won a permanent, enthusiastic client. I have been singing your praises to my friends and will do my best to direct additional business your way.
Thank you also for the very generous Whole Foods gift card. You are most kind and thoughtful. My husband and I sincerely appreciate all that you have done for us.
My apologies for not sending this e-mail earlier in the week. I wanted to let you know how much I love the solid butcher block table in the large blue cabinet. Had it not been for your insightfulness, we would have never had this convenience. I am grateful to you each time I prepare a meal!
Understandably, a kitchen remodel is an arduous task at best and creates a good amount of stress and there will be oversights and mistakes. We thank you and Almvigs for your professionalism and courtesy throughout this trying time.
Dear Almvig's Kitchen and Bath Home Center ,
My husband and I purchased Pacific Crest cabinets for our kitchen remodel through Almvig's last fall and wanted to take a few minutes to express my gratitude for all the wonderful assistance Lacey provided us in our purchase experience. She was immensely helpful from the design phase to the end phase of purchasing a few extra trim pieces we did not originally anticipate wanting. Lacey provided suggestions that vastly improved our layout design and made the selection of specific elements one of the easiest home remodel processes I have been through. She was always very prompt in following up on our project and never failed to do so in an extremely professional and friendly way.
I have recommended Almvig's and Lacey to everyone who has come through our kitchen. You are fortunate to have her on your staff.
Dear Don, Scott, and everybody at Almvig’s,
We just wanted to write and thank you for another great appliance experience! You have
Once again gone above and beyond and made our lives easier and happier.
Our relationship with your store goes back about two years, to when we had just moved into our house. We came in and bought a refrigerator and range. One of the best things
about this purchase was that you were able to order a fridge that had been discontinued, but that met our specific needs. Not only were you able to `get us a hard-to-find product, but your prices were also better than other places we had looked for the same appliances. We were so happy with that experience that we let ourselves be talked into coming back a couple of weeks later for a very nice range hood, and we are so glad we got that as well.
More recently, we decided to move ahead with a full kitchen remodel, and of course we
came back to Almvig’s for the remaining appliances we needed: dishwasher and microwave. Once again, the prices you gave us were the best we could find, and your service was as friendly as always. Nearing the end of this remodel, with our baby girl
due very soon, we ran into a problem with the dishwasher- it had been damaged somehow and was not functioning. Our contractor denied responsibility and did not want to help; we called the local authorized Kitchenaid service centers, and they could not get to us for over a week. Don at Almvig’s was the only person who seemed to want to help: he was able to send an installer to look at the dishwasher that day. And although it could not be determined what happened to the dishwasher, he offered to replace it and have the new one installed only two days later at no further cost to us. It is such a relief to have the dishwasher in place and working now!
Since we bought our first appliances at Almvig’s, we have always recommended you to our friends and family. Now we strongly insist that they come to you for everything they need. We have already told our story to several friends, and will continue to do so. We can’t thank you enough, and of course we will always come back for any appliances we may need in the future.
With infinite gratitude,
Nicole & Jeremy
Don, Lacey, and all Almvig’s Associates,
The BEST stop we made on the road to renovating our original 1960’s kitchen was at Almvig’s. First Don put us in contact with his design team and Lacey took the lead.
The design fee was the best investment we made in our project. Having a professional guide the progress removed worry and a boat load of headaches. Working with Lacey was a dream. She is a marvelous designer, a perfect blend of resources, patience, and creativity and you can put these qualities in any order you choose. After more than 13 years of dreaming she was the one who put the dreams to paper and made it all real. She transformed our thoughts into a reality that is beautiful, functional, realistic, and a dream come true. The results are so close to our original vision – we couldn’t be happier.
During the entire process – product selection through completion – the entire team at Almvig’s was friendly, professional, and always helpful. The days Anthony delivered cabinets and appliances were a special treat, particularly because of his care and concern.
Don demystified our appliance selection and purchase. We needed it all and Don provided balanced and accurate information, no matter how often we asked, in our confused state of decision overwhelm. With Don, what we expected to be a chore became a pleasure.
We would happily recommend Almvig’s as the best one stop when renovating a kitchen. If any customers want a personal referral we would be happy to share our experience.
Finally, we can only say again, THANK YOU for your guidance during our renovation. Not only have the reconfigured rooms impressed family and friends, we are happily making very good use of the results!

Dear Lacey, Don, Deb, and the staff at Almvig's,
As Dave and I talked about how much we are enjoying our new kitchen, we wanted to let you know how much we appreciate your helping us through the process. We had put off doing anything with the kitchen for at least ten years because of the number of decisions that would need to be made, and the extent of work necessary to do a good job. We had hoped at one point to do just a face-lift, but now that we are in the brand new kitchen we are really glad we did not settle for less than what we now have.
The staff at Almvig's was helpful from the moment we walked through the door. Deb asked us a few questions and then walked us through the showroom, pointing out which appliances would fit our needs. She explained the design service and we felt like we now had a place to begin. We did our homework and really thought about what we wanted.
Then Lacey came out for the home visit. She asked a lot more questions, took some measurements, and told us about Huggy Bear cabinets. In just a few days, she was ready to show us the first draft. It was exciting, but not quite right, so we made some changes and she did the second draft. We did not feel rushed and took our time, trying to imagine the paper drawings translated into real cabinets and appliances. The third draft was just what we wanted. We chose to work with Magic Touch and things really took off. Cabinets and appliances were ordered and more decisions were made.
Lacey answered all of our many questions and gave us lots of good suggestions about products we of which we were not aware. We began to feel like we "owned" this new kitchen even while it was still on paper.
The actual installation went well, people and things showed up when expected, more decisions were made as inevitable quirks popped up in the existing structure of our house. Kelly and Jay from Magic Touch were professional, expert installers who did an amazing job as we continued to live in and around their work space. In what now seems like in a short time, we were inviting family and friends in to celebrate this new room with us. Now we have a functional and beautiful kitchen that feels like us and of which we are very proud. I love all the new storage spaces, the beauty of the cupboards, the ease of using the new appliances, the sense of organization that Lacey helped us bring to our kitchen. What we do not have to share are any remodeling "horror stories." Thank you Almvig's and Magic Touch! We will let you know when we are ready to tackle the bathrooms!
Sincere thanks to all involved,
Jocelyn and Dave

Karsten and I want to thank you so much for our beautiful downstairs!
I wasn’t sure what to expect at our first meeting, but your smile and bright attitude helped me relax and know that our “dream renovation” was in the right hands. You took all of our hopes and sketches Karsten had made and the concept started to take shape with your computer drawings. Every detail was discussed so we felt confidence in the cabinet manufacturer. The recommendation of Magic Touch Remodeling was a blessing, and we knew that your partnership would ensure any unforeseen problem be taken care of without any concerns. All of our questions were promptly answered throughout the project-and there were many- and your willingness to dig in when you weren’t sure was so appreciated. Your hands on approach has been a real bonus, and the few shopping trips you helped with went above and beyond.
Amy, without hesitation, it would be our pleasure to recommend your services to our friends and family. Please feel free to give our phone number to any clients that would like to know about our experience!!
Thanks again for everything!!
