Linda on shopping trip

Our History

In 1988, Linda and her husband Dave, a mechanical engineer, recognized a market need for distinctively designed kitchen spaces and finely crafted cabinetry. They knew that the customer base they had grown to love in the west suburban Chicago area had a sincere desire for handcrafted items. So, combining their respective entrepreneurial spirits, they embarked on creating a kitchen design company – a decision that would prove momentous.

Today, PB Kitchen Design is still leveraging Linda’s creative flair and Dave’s technical prowess to develop some of the most impressive kitchen designs you will find. A small team of highly talented and passionate individuals share the couple’s vision, including their son, Dan, who serves as company President.
