Long Awaited Grand Opening!

In this Issue

Long Awaited Grand Opening!....................1

Introducing the Turbochef Speedcook Ovens ...............................2

For the last few months, we have had many of you patient fans drop by to see the progress on the showroom. Many have expressed their anxiety and desire to see what we come up with.

Well, it is finally here. We will be holding our grand opening on the 25th of August from 9am - 5pm.

There will be four full kitchen displays, most of the units operational. We will have most of our manufacturer sales representatives on hand to help answer questions.

You will want to come early, because there will be food and prizes, and limited special purchases on things such as concrete countertops, Bosch dishwashers, design services, and of course, the Turbochef wall oven.

There will be one of the top chef’s in the nation on hand to cook and demonstrate the Turbochef ovens. You won’t want to miss this incredible technology.

If you are tired of the lack of thorough professional guidance that you can find in the area of kitchens, come see us for anything related to kitchens.

“We would like to thank you for all you guys are doing- you make so easy to deal with all of this- We truly appreciate all your time, people at Portrait Kitchens are very down to earth- Love what we see on your great prints”

James & Athena Shannon, Mesquite, NV

Q: How will my kitchen remodel affect the price or value of my home?

A: The value of your home can be impacted positively or negatively, depending on how you complete the project. Generally speaking, in our region of the country, you can expect approximately a 90% return on your investment in a kitchen remodel.

However, this number has all the unprofessional, amateurs, and do-it-yourselfers considered as well. With this in mind, if you work with a kitchen professional such as a Certified Kitchen Designer, you should expect a higher return. I find that most of my projects produce anywhere from a 90% to a 150% return on the investment.

Every project is different, so take your time, and evaluate what you can afford, then consult a professional for added advice.

You can e-mail the Expert by sending your questions to info@portraitkitchens.com. Please be sure to include your name and phone number in case additional information is required to answer your question.



Question: What is Linoleum made from?

A: Polyvinyl chloride.
B: Wood flour and linseed oil.

D: None of the above.

The first correct answer faxed to 986.8323 or e-mailed to info@portraitkitchens.com will be this month’s winner of 2 Movie Passes to Westates Theaters!
