Great Kitchen Design
“I have just had my kitchen and bath designed by Dan. He did a wonderful job for us. Dan has the ability to see solutions that others miss. Our home had a very nice archway that I didn't want to lose and Dan found a creative way to incorporate it into the new design. Dan is pleasant to work with and pays attention to detail. It's a winning combination. His business is kitchens so he helps you think through your needs. We now have a wonderful new kitchen and bath!”
Lisa Anderson, Menlo Park
Truly Understood Our Goal
"Danenberg Design listened to our goal of recreating our kitchen space to be the primary gathering place when we entertain. Their solution was innovative, cost effective and conducive to conversation and entertaining. They designed a space that wasn’t traditional, yet had the warmth of the rest of our house. Danenberg Design truly understood our goal and was a terrific partner to work with."
Steve & Linda Balogh, Portola Valley
We Immediately Knew You Were the Team….
"When we met you almost five years ago, we knew immediately you were the team to take us where we wanted to go. Some of the things we liked the best were the dynamic nature of the project, the intensity and the diligence you displayed in showing us all the alternatives and, above all, the incredible creativity that resulted in a kitchen that is uniquely ours."
Joe and Sandra Hirschmann, Hillsborough
Home Brings Us Pleasure Every Day
"Having Dan Danenberg as our architect was truly a gift. He is very creative and innovative, yet always remained sensitive to our own tastes and lifestyle. Whenever Dan promised to do something, it was done. He paid attention to every detail of our totally remodeled house, carefully supervising each stage of construction. His enthusiasm and unfailing good humor kept us excited about the project. The end result was a beautiful home that brings us pleasure each and every day."
Dr. and Mrs. Philip Eastman, Portola Valley
We Could Rely on You Every Step of the Way
"Working with Kitchens by Design doesn’t make the dust go away when the contractor tears out your old kitchen, but they sure make a project easier to take. If I had my whole project to do over again, you can bet I wouldn’t change designers. Dan and Lanny Danenberg are not only good people, but they are good at what they do."
Frank and Lynn Criscenti, Emerald Hills
Great Eye for Style
“Dan is an innovative designer with excellent design ideas and a great eye for style. He also listens and understands the clients' needs and ideas very well. He transformed my kitchen into something that's slick and beautiful, and extremely functional. I will enjoy my kitchen forever!”
Liz Su, Palo Alto, CA
Made Remodeling Simple, Easy and Fun
"Lanny and Dan Danenberg made remodeling our kitchen and bathroom simple, easy and fun. We really enjoyed working with them. Lanny was always available to come by and show us new materials, answer our never ending questions and help make those tough decisions. The result was a wonderful new living space we enjoy that blends Lanny and Dan's design knowledge and creativeness with our taste and lifestyle."
Linda and Grant Harmon, Menlo Park
Thanks for a Beautiful Job!
"We gave Dan a big challenge, to design a kitchen and loft that would be practical yet consistent with our 'authentic' colonial decor and one that would not end up looking like an 'add-on'. We are thrilled with the results. We continue to have people stop and compliment us on how well the new addition blends with the original house. Our thanks for a beautiful job!"
Don and Phyllis Wood, Menlo Park
Kitchen Captures the Essence of Carmel
"This kitchen captures the essence of the Carmel area - earthiness with a touch of whimsy. What makes it endure is the remarkable craftsmanship of the cabinetry and the ease of its function. Danenberg Design provided professional guidance and knowledge so that the project was a true meeting of the minds."
Laurie Ghielmetti/Laurie Ghielmetti Interiors, Carmel
“Dan's vision in realizing the potential of a small space, allowed this to become the kitchen of our dreams....”
Carl, Cora and Chris Bayan, Menlo Park
One of My Favorite People

Larry Cofer/Structural Engineer, Menlo Park
Courteous Manner that Sparkles with Humor
"Working with Dan Danenberg on remodeling our kitchen and bathrooms has been a distinct pleasure. He tackles design challenges with a creative flair that effectively balances function with form. We particularly appreciate his zealous commitment to high quality that extends to the tiniest of details and his friendly, courteous manner that sparkles with humor. He personifies for us what it means to be professional in the best sense of that word."
Don and Ann Hill, San Mateo
A Pleasure to Watch Dan’s Creativity at Work
“We had a contractor gut our kitchen; floor, walls, ceiling; all of it. From there Dan and his team took over and built a kitchen that is truly by design, in fact it found its way into the "Sunset Kitchen" magazine. Dan took charge of all the rebuilding, supervising it every step of the way.
My wife and I are very pleased with the way it turned out and the final result is a kitchen that looks and functions the way we want it to. It is a big step out of the ordinary.
If we go ahead with our plan to have an outdoor kitchen built it will be by "Kitchens by Design". And it will be a pleasure to watch Dan's creativity at work again.”
Pete and Waldy Breidbach, Alamo
Great Designer – Beautiful Work!!
“We gutted our kitchen and put it in Dan's capable hands! What a gorgeous showpiece we now have! Dan was able to utilize our space; he showed us a better flow than the old we previously had and Dan had innovative ideas that make us love our "Architectural Digest" quality kitchen. Our cabinets are beautifully made and everyone who sees our new kitchen is in awe at the transformation. It pays to use a professional - and Dan is the consummate professional. He knows his stuff!! You can tell he has a strong design background but he is never pushy. Dan was even able to design a patio and outdoor kitchen area that is "to die for"! Call him - you won't be sorry.
P.S. I never had any problem parking. There were always spaces both in front of his studio and in the large parking lot across the street. He is very convenient to get to.”
Cherie Colon, Gilroy
Creative Approach to Design
“We tried working with 3 other kitchen designers before we found Dan at Kitchens by Design. I believe his architecture background contributed to the creative way he approached our design concerns. We couldn't be more pleased with the results.
We had several meetings at his storefront and I never had any problem parking in the huge parking lot right in front.”
Brett Turner, Oakland
