Our Story

In 1975 Duane launched Kitchens by Scholten, Inc. Beautiful perspective drawings, personalized service and installation by trusted Scholten craftsman grew the business and earned for it the trust and respect it enjoys today. With the addition of bathroom fixtures in 1979, Kitchens by Scholten became Scholten Kitchen & Bath.

Through the years, word of mouth spread the good news about kitchen and bathroom remodeling by Scholten. Many customers became longtime friends who returned years later to a business they trusted for their next home improvement project.

Since that time styles and trends continue to change, but Scholten’s commitment to outstanding design and exceptional customer service remains unwavering. Dan Scholten, an NKBA Certified Kitchen Designer, along with our experienced design team, work with our clients through the entire process, start to finish.
