Testimonials

Three kitchens and two baths probably tells the whole story but Snaidero Bay Area is #1 in my book.  Beautiful cabinetry, excellent workmanship. Michael Glasser has an infallible eye, gives total attention to detail, and never fails to deliver.  I recommend him / them wholeheartedly. – Francesca Peck. Kentfield, California

 

Michael Glasser designed our dream Snaidero kitchen for us. He was both meticulous as to detail and extremely creative as to design. He is an exceptionally talented, proactive, inspired designer, with a deep knowledge of architecture, who is excellent with the use and design of space and the selection of cabinet styles, countertop styles, and accessories to implement his creative vision. He paid a great deal of attention to our lifestyle and how we use our kitchen and customized his design concepts accordingly. He remained thoroughly involved from the smallest design detail to the overall “big picture” feeling of the kitchen we envisioned. He suggested structural modifications to the kitchen design, shopped with us for the perfect countertop to complement our cabinets, made suggestions as to appliances and lighting (including designing a stunning custom hood over our cooktop), and even helped us design a new fireplace in the adjacent family room to complement the new kitchen. He also supervised the installation of the kitchen to make sure all went smoothly and was completed on schedule. This is not a designer that you never see again after you sign the contract. No one visits our home without stopping for a moment in awe of our kitchen. We have Michael to thank for that and also for every time we walk into our kitchen and smile. –  Lois and Frank Scali. San Rafael, California

 

Michael Glasser is both a true professional and a perfectionist. In working on our rather large kitchen project, he took care of everything, suggesting thoughtful design solutions, providing an excellent installer, interfacing with the general contractor and personally made sure that even the smallest details are perfect. I highly recommend his services to anyone who wants a stress-free kitchen installation and would certainly work with him again, should the opportunity arise. ” – Dana Karlsons – Mill Valley, California

 

Michael Glasser designed, ordered, and installed a new Snaidero kitchen in my home. Having worked with Michael for several months I am in a position to heartily recommend him to anyone who is interested in having the best possible kitchen installed in one’s home. He is absolutely the best contractor with whom I have ever worked. His work in all areas was exemplary. Employing Michael, one can be totally confident that the final product will be beautiful, functional, and long lasting. Michael Glasser is without a doubt the person to contact for one’s kitchen needs. – Steve Kirby, Reno, Nevada

 

Michael Glasser installed a magnificent kitchen for us, tailoring his design to our needs exactly. We use the kitchen daily but it continues to have that “just built” look. He realized that we would not be satisfied with a run of the mill kitchen, designing in features peculiar only to us and weighing in constructively on the four different combinations of Caesarstone, glass and natural stone for the counter tops and back splashes. He also helped us with design choices that went well beyond his responsibility in order to coordinate the entire kitchen/family room.   We recommend Michael as a hardworking craftsman/artisan who met our expectations. – WJ Balzer, Alamo, California

 

We highly recommend Michael Glasser and Snaidero Kitchens. Michael helped us take our outdated 1970’s kitchen into the 21st century and we love it! He took the time to listen to our family needs and came up with several layout options. We worked together with him on all the elements that were necessary to create a comfortable and functional kitchen, eat in breakfast room and bar area. Michael went above and beyond helping us with other vendors and working with our contractor to ensure quality at every step of the way. We have been enjoying our Snaidero kitchen for years and have received accolades from all our visiting family and friends. – The Rossi Family, Hillsborough, California

 

We first saw our Snaidero kitchen cabinets in a show -stopping contemporary custom home in Portola Valley.  Although we looked at many other lines nothing ever came close in terms of the combination of aesthetics and functionality.  Both were equally important to us.  We then showed these cabinets to our architects (who were unfamiliar with this line and somewhat skeptical.  Not all European cabinet lines are equal and they had had some bad experiences – after a quite thorough examination they agreed with us. Our next wonderful surprise with this line came from working with Michael Glasser himself.  For years (yes years) he patiently and unobtrusively checked in with us to see if we had made a decision and if he was still in the running…when we finally purchased our Snaidero cabinets he provided drawings, suggestions for managing costs using standard components as much as possible as well as reliable schedule information.  He also did our installation.  Michael is a perfectionist in terms of details, precision and subtle elegant style.  He truly cares that we used the right pulls, the right inside cabinet puck lights, and he found a beautiful matching glass cabinet tambour. Finally Michael has a Rolodex that most private wealth managers would envy and these clients respect his opinion and enjoy the process of working with him.  I suspect his engaging personality, fanatical attention to details as well as his lovely cabinet line might have something to do with that. – Joy Elliott and Robin Adler, Portola Valley, California

 

Facing a complete rebuild of our house, we were totally excited to find that Michael Glasser of Snaidero Bay Area could supply us with beautifully curved kitchen cabinets to echo our curved chimney breast and fireplace in the living room. Michael designed our kitchen to effortlessly draw in both the garden and deck areas outside: he held our hands, metaphorically, every step of the way. His excellent eye was immensely comforting when choosing the large amount of granite our design required. Michael worked painstakingly with our contractor and the subs to ensure 100% accurate placement of all utilities. No detail was overlooked. Ordered in plenty of time and ready when needed, our kitchen installation was an exercise in smoothness, topped only by the flawless and skillful granite placement. Snaidero found us a manufacturer to make a curved sink for our cabinets beneath our picture window to the garden. Our Snaidero kitchen has withstood the test of time and weathered any and all challenges thrown at it in everyday life. Michael has always been around to answer questions and help with anything we might need, even if we don’t talk to him for years at a time. We cannot recommend him highly enough. – Anita and Tom MacAleavey, Kentfield, California

 

Snaidero in Northern California is Michael Glasser, and Michael Glasser is a perfectionist. Because Michael wouldn’t stop until every last detail was perfect, we now have a timelessly beautiful and impeccably crafted kitchen — and we actually enjoyed the process. At one point, we were choosing a countertop, and I was overwhelmed with all the possibilities. Instead of pressuring us into a hasty and uninformed decision, Michael spent a day squiring me from one showroom to another, while giving me a mini-course on the stone industry. We were then able to narrow the field and make an educated choice. Amazingly, our kitchen project was completed a few weeks before the projected date, but our enjoyment is ongoing. We cannot say enough about Michael Glasser’s design sense; his access to the best suppliers and craftspeople; his responsiveness to our needs; and, his uncanny ability to make us feel that we were his most important clients. – Diane & AJ Kallet, Mill Valley, California

TWO INTO ONE

February 22, 2017February 22, 2017
san-francisco-european-kitchen-lux-mill-valley-01Our concept for this project called for combining a separate small kitchen and small dining room into a single dramatic living space.  Increasing natural light and providing a spacious view to beautiful gardens were additional requirements.  Simple yet elegant “Way” cabinetry was selected in Dark Ash Wood and Nordic White Matte Micalized Lacquer. A tall sideboard for the dining room in Dark Ash provides generous storage.
