The choice is unparalleled, the design is inspired, the service is first-class, and the value is second to none.

Arete Kitchens is an Austin-based design studio and showroom specializing in the design, supply and installation of high-quality modern kitchens, bespoke closets and complementary wood interiors that connect kitchen, dining and living in beautiful and functional harmony. Every project we undertake – whether creating a totally new kitchen or remodeling an existing one – is as important to us as it is to you. We understand that choosing and installing your dream kitchen is one the most important decisions you will make in your home and believe you need to spend time to get it right.

Our specialized team of experienced designers will help and advise you in your choice. In a collaborative and budget-conscious approach, your space will be designed specifically with you in mind focusing on your individual aspirations for your home and lifestyle. 

An estimation and planning service is offered, along with state-of-the-art presentation technology which provides three-dimensional images so you can see your perfect kitchen laid before you. Our emphasis is on a fully integrated service, from planning and design, all the way through to installation – making the entire process a comprehensive, professional and seamless experience.

We pride ourselves on our select offering of premier German-made cabinetry by LEICHT and for providing a design and installation service that is tailored, experienced and thorough. Quality and attention to detail define who we are. We are passionate about our work and ensure that our clients are happy with their investment today and for the years to come.

ARETE is the most articulated value in Greek culture, and in its simplest definition means excellence.

For us, ARETE [air-e-tee] embodies our commitment to the integrity of all that we do, to honor the journey, and to continually push higher.

"After 6 or 7 kitchen remodel jobs within the past 20 years, we were unaccustomed to being served like this! Kitchen remodeling is a tough job and we wanted to find someone who would listen rather than talk. Tom was amazing! He is a man of integrity and he has not only lived up to our expectations throughout the job, he far exceeded them. We cannot recommend Arete highly enough."
