Judith Reidel is known as The Kitchen Lady nationally. Trademarked in the year 1998. After a formal education she launched into her desired vocation-designing. Upon completion of her training at Willsey Institute of Art and Interior Design and then on to New York Institute of Technology, She went on to teach at both schools. Her specific subjects were: Interior Design and Technical Drawing. She became known as a Space Planner.

Gifted and trained she went on to become a successful and much sought out designer of Kitchens, bathrooms and libraries. In fact she is capable of designing an entire home. Even if it means reconstruction from the bare bones of the building, which on several occasions she did, Out of necessity, she became a Carpenter. This allowed her to understand the need to know how to solve problems on a small and large scale, a feat that many other Designers cannot do.

Pursuing her profession further she trained in Cedarhurst on a cabinetry line named Snaidero. Later moving to Manhattan she worked for Sie-Matic showroom, Rutt and Wood-Mode Cabinetry. Later was invited to Visit Munich, Germany to work with Hoffberger Interiors the company that made their own Custom Cabinetry. This Company was extremely high end thus denying the average citizen access. The Interiors were made of cherry wood and mahogany, with Lava Counter tops and a myriad of colors. Their work was outstanding. Later she was employed by Downsview Cabinetry in the Dacota Design Building in Dania, Florida. The weather, hot throughout the year became too much for her, she returned to Manhattan and opened her business on West 82nd Street between Columbus and Central Park West. Now she is established in LOCUST VALLEY 516-277-2001 and NORTHPORT 631-757-8380.

       Judith shared with us that she can provide a beautiful Kitchen as inexpensive as $20,000: however most of her Kitchens are in the range of $75,000 -$300,000. More than 30 years of her life has been devoted to honing her skills, by traveling to other countries, such as Italy, France and England, to observe what new and inventive items are being offered in her field. She visited Italy and France four times and was inspired by their creativity. Judith designed some kitchens with those two countries in mind; however, in the final analysis she designs to suit the client and their life style. Judith always take their image, be it from a bowl which means everything to them and creating the kitchen of their desires.

       Judith began to share some personal aspects of her life. "When I went into my own business, I was determined to create not just sell cabinetry. I love to cook and understand the functionality of an excellent design of a kitchen. However, I wanted my design to be different a space unique and works with the house as a whole. The Exterior and the Interior should match in style…to be surrounded by a beautiful look...I don't like a closet full of cabinets. I know you don't have to live in a multi-million dollar house to have a magnificent home. A home should be a place where you surround yourself with things you love and a retreat to be nurtured. It is your Sanctuary”.

      People often remark that Judith must have a beautiful Kitchen; she replies “I have a modest but a very lovely Kitchen.” Her cabinetry is clear pine from Signature Custom Cabinetry with whom she now represents. Judith’s decor is Red, Yellow and Black, a true Southern French kitchen. “When I was younger I used to be very formal  and I can still be at times but I have with years of experience learned to relax so I have grown in my taste…I can create whatever style that is appropriate to fit within the budget.”

                Call Judith or set up an appointment at 516-277-2001 Locust Valley or 631-757-8380 Northport. She desires to enjoy the pleasure of creating the space for you. Her only wish is that you will be pleased with the end results. Come and enjoy the journey together.
