Local entrepreneur opens Kitchen Tune-Up

Kitchen Tune-Up, a kitchen remodeling company known for its signature one-day wood restoration service, has arrived in Steamboat Springs. Meeting the growing demand from homeowners seeking to update and upgrade the look of their kitchens, Kitchen Tune-Up serves the city of Steamboat and surrounding communities with its customized services.

Local resident Robyn Higginbotham has launched Kitchen Tune-Up's operations with the support of the company's home office, located in Aberdeen, South Dakota. The award-winning company has established itself as the industry leader with more than 30 years of success behind it.

"Our goal is to make kitchen updates hassle-free for homeowners in Steamboat," said Higgenbotham, who has also been a real estate broker associate in Steamboat since 2005. "We want to show our neighbors that making a change in their kitchen can be fun and easy. They'll enjoy the experience every step of the way and will start dreaming of their next home improvement project the minute we finish."

"Robyn is a fantastic addition to the Kitchen Tune-Up family,” said Heidi Morrissey, president of Kitchen Tune-Up. “We have all the confidence in her to carry on the Kitchen Tune-Up tradition. She is exactly the type of trusted partner homeowners in Steamboat Springs need to support their remodeling project."

In addition to residential clients, Kitchen Tune-Up offers kitchen remodeling for commercial customers. Services for both client bases include the company's Tune-Up, a proprietary wood reconditioning process, as well as cabinet redooring, cabinet refacing, custom cabinets, granite Tune-Ups, garage cabinets and accessories.

While most kitchen remodeling services can take weeks, leaving kitchens inaccessible, Kitchen Tune-Up can finish its work in as little as one to five days.

Kitchen Tune-Up of Steamboat Springs is available by appointment for no-obligation estimates.
