Welcome to Arthur’s Kitchen School
In the world of kitchen design, Arthur is a true kitchenologist. Growing up, Arthur got first hand experience at designing and building cabinets working at his father’s kitchen showroom, Zobel Kitchens. As he continued in the kitchen design business, Arthur realized that the more his customers knew about the various details of cabinetry, the pros and cons of the many features and counter surface options, layout choices, and more, the better the experience was for his clients. The end result is a custom kitchen that the homeowner truly enjoys.
