Who we are: George “Skip” Smith is the founder. Skip’s Father and Grandfather were custom builders and cabinet makers in South Jersey dating back to the 1930s. Skip developed his trade working with his father George and Saber’s Kitchens of Atlantic City. IN 1976 he opened Skip’s Designs which later became Kitchen Encounters in 1980. We have been Kitchen Encounters for 35 years. We still embrace the traditional trade of cabinet design, along with the technological advancements and modern trends of today.

What we do: We specialize in space planning, design and cabinet sales for kitchens, bathrooms and any room of the home. We still incorporate the old school way of measuring 3 times and cutting once. We are authorized dealers for Plain and Fancy Cabinetry, Luxor Collection, and Homecrest Cabinetry.

Who we service: We are located in Somers Point NJ, right across the bridge from Ocean City NJ. We sell to homeowners and builders alike all along the jersey shore. We service Margate, Longport, and Ventnor on Absecon Island. We travel to Long Beach Island frequently. We work for some of the largest custom home builders in Avalon, Stone Harbor and Sea Isle. We have had customers from Philadelphia and the Mainline design their summer homes, and then ask us to design their primary residence as well. We have traveled to Cape May to design kitchens, and as far away as Florida and Colorado. No Job is too big or too small. Call us today!
