We had a tremendous experience working with Hagit Belfer at the Kitchen Center. She helped us achieve our goal – a contemporary kitchen at one with a 1905-era space. Hagit has a wonderful eye for design, one that stretches from the big picture to the smallest details, and everything in between. She was a pleasure to work with throughout – responsive, thoughtful, attentive. She listens. We are so happy with the result, both in terms of its appearance and overall functionality!

We are thrilled with our new kitchen. Hagit Belfer and her team at the Kitchen Center of Framingham did exquisite work, of the highest quality and taste. To create our egg-and-dart dentil moldings, Hagit went so far as to personally visit the Morgan Library in New York City to take photographs and measurements. They are excellent designers and skilled technicians, an unusual combination. And they have the advantage of working with a very high-quality cabinet maker. We highly recommend them for the finest work.

We recently finished a new construction house and we worked with Hagit at the Kitchen Center. I cannot say enough good things about Hagit. She was excellent with modern design, in addition to her excellent cabinet design, she gave us input about how to deal with ceiling trays, window frames and doorways in our kitchen space. She communicated with us frequently throughout the process and made several visits to our house to be sure that the installation was going well and has continued to check in with us after the job has been completed to be sure we are happy and to see if we need anything additional. The cabinets are excellent quality and she has been pleasure to work with, very personable and talented!

I came to the Kitchen Center after having started originally with a contractor who works by himself but was highly recommended by acquaintances. He wasn’t as good as I had hoped at turning my fairly specific requests into a plan for the kitchen (we have tongue and groove cathedral ceilings that cannot be modified, so this affected the lighting – and he kept designing in lights that would not work with the ceiling electric access already there – added to the fact that his design was uninspired). What truly drove me away from him was his insistence that we get all our appliances from one specific store and that I work only with “Rocco” which suggested to me that this contractor was getting a kickback from this store or salesperson. So, looking once more for someone who could take my very large 1960’s kitchen down to the studs and remake it into a great kitchen that was more workable than what I had, I went online and found the Kitchen Center of Framingham to be very highly rated by a large number of customers. With no personal recommendation, only online reviews, I went ahead with them. SO glad that I did. The process has been smooth and their ability to meet my deadlines was dead-on. I met them for the first time in mid-July; they said they could start the day after Labor Day, and they had to be done four days before Thanksgiving because I was having nine people stay in the house over the Wednesday-Sunday Thanksgiving weekend and would need to put away all the things that had been removed from the kitchen while it was being renovated so that I could serve the Thanksgiving meal to 24 people. I can’t say enough about how professional, respectful, considerate, and careful they were in their work. I particularly recommend working with Hagit Belfer, the designer, who is so easy to work with, has a very good eye for what will look good in a space, and is incredibly responsive. She also is a great advocate for the customer. When two of the kitchen panels did not look as I thought the drawing had shown them, Hagit immediately ordered new ones to replace them. Whatever issues I had with the work (and the issues were all small and not a result of my changing my mind as apparently quite a few people do), the Kitchen Center addressed them at no extra cost. I literally have no complaints about the Kitchen Center, only praise. They deserve six stars!

Our experience with the Kitchen Center was the easiest and most exciting part of our home building. We did a total tear down and rebuild of our home late 2015 and Hagit was recommended by our contractor. We went to a few kitchen places to compare designs and pricing and were very impressed by Hagit’s design talent, attention to detail, customer service and fair pricing. Our kitchen is our favorite place in our new home and the entire process was collaborative, fun and smooth. We highly recommend Hagit at Kitchen Center.

We chose Kitchen Center of Framingham to do all of the cabinetry in our newly built home including the kitchen, living area, bathrooms, mud room and office. Sara was so easy to work with. She knew how overwhelming the decision making process was for us on such a large project and she guided us through every detail. We are thrilled with the outcome and wouldn’t have changed a thing!
We built a new home and used Kitchen Center for all of our cabinetry. Large kitchen, 7.5 bathrooms, a basement kitchenette, and laundry room. We worked with Hagit and she was wonderful. She has an impeccable sense of design, but doesn’t compromise function. We have a more contemporary style and she was able to think about not just the difference in choice of materials, but also the actual design of the cabinetry (e.g., fewer, wider cabinets). She was also very detail oriented, which is necessary in this line of work. She was very personable, responsive and an easy person with whom to work. When our cabinetry was ready for installation, we worked with Dustin in Production who was also responsive to our needs and a shifting construction schedule. Since installation, we’ve had a few punch list items pop up and they have continued to be responsive. Kitchen Center’s installers were also pleasant and professional. I would highly recommend working with them on your project without any hesitation.

After waiting to renovate our kitchen, laundry room and mudroom for more than 20 years, we feel blessed that we found Kitchen Center and especially Hagit to help make our dream a reality that even exceeded our dreams. We are very demanding, particular and detail oriented people and Hagit and Kitchen Center met our every demand.
All of the other positive reviews of Hagit are totally true and even understatements since there are not enough words to describe how Hagit and the team at Kitchen Center are the perfect kitchen planner and cabinet designer/ installers who are like teammates to achieve your goals. Hagit listens intently to her customers objectives and is willing to provide highly constructive input, not only on her magnificent Wood Mode/ Brookhaven cabinets that she provides at a fair price, but on all other aspects of the project (appliances, lighting, flooring, counters and backsplashes) because she views the entire project with the same sense of professional pride and caring as if it were her own house.
Throughout the process from the first day she toured our old 1950s kitchen to today when she inspected the few minor touchups, Hagit shared advise, guidance, insights, and patience. Without her help, we may not have been able to complete the project and sustain our 47 year marriage or at least, it would not have come out as magnificent. Hagit is creative, resourceful, totally responsive, artistic, meticulous, completely knowledgeable, and a true professional. She took our architect’s basic plans and transformed them into an outstanding kitchen and shared the many plan drafts and CAD visuals until we were totally satisfied. Customer service means everything to her as she works with you to try to come up with solutions to each construction challenge. For example, she came back a couple of times to check and double checks measurements so the cabinet order would be correct.
The production side with Dustin and Brian are also amazing and Hagit coordinates with them to assure all aspects proceed smoothly, as Hagit also knows how to collaborate with the architect and contractor, as well as all the other vendors on the project, to sooth any ruffled feathers. She is incredibly brilliant and recognizes that the outcome of her job depends on everyone being on the same page. They were all impressed with her diligence and knowledge. Kitchen Center stood behind their work and product, not hesitating to send highly qualified people for touchups and minor adjustments.
Anyone interested in Wood Mode or Brookhave Cabinets, who can afford to pay the premium price for that premium product, would be making a huge mistake if they did not hire Hagit and Kitchen Center to renovate their kitchen, laundry, or bathroom.

We bought a new condo in February of 2016 with Brookhaven kitchen cabinets. We love them. When it came time to have built-in base cabinets with shelves above, we went to the Kitchen Center and met with Hagit. I am a bit if a detail freak and had many observations, mesurements, suggestions, etc. not knowing the background of the person with whom we would be dealing. We were most pleasantly surprised and pleased with Hagit’t knowledge, understanding and suggestions. She made our choices of style, color, sizing and so forth a breeze. The built-in were installed today by the most professional person with pride in his work. A perfectionist. What a pleasure to finish this process with an outstanding installer. We had a few issues during completion of our condo where we needed to choose new kitchen granite after the condo’s design Center had closed. We went to the Kitchen Center and asked to borrow some cabinet doors, etc. to bring with us to choose new granite. At that time we had no relationship with them but they happily let us borrow what we needed. We give an outstanding rating to the Kitchen Center and especially to Hagit!
The Kitchen Center came highly recommended by our designer as well as neighbors who had recently purchased kitchen cabinets. We had an extensive renovation, including a new master bathroom and kitchen remodel. Using quality materials that would endure the test of time was important to us, and after thorough comparison shopping we opted for Brookhaven cabinets from The Kitchen Center. The Kitchen Center had a large selection of cabinet styles/ finishes, attractive hardware and convenient accessories. We were able to find exactly what we had in mind. The staff worked seamlessly with our designer. The cabinet installation was expertly done, with a keen eye to the smallest details. Each staff member along the way was courteous and helpful. Our rooms have been transformed into beautiful, comfortable and very functional spaces, due in large part to the cabinetry. We are very pleased!
