The talent behind Kitchens by Eileen evolved from a growing love for art and design and was recognized in 1972 when Eileen Riddle graduated from duCret School of Art. This education would lead her to discover the kitchen and bath field which began by an answering an ad. While raising a family in New York, Eileen answered an ad for an artist to sketch kitchen and bath designs at a local cabinet shop. Thus began her love for space planning and design. She went on to study and acquire her CKD (Certified Kitchen Designer) Certification in 1995.
Through the years she would work for some of the most talented designers and gain significant relationships along the way. As her career expanded and took a variety of shapes, her passion for creating spaces where friends and family could gather never wavered. In 2009 Eileen took a leap of faith and decided to take the opportunity to become an independent designer. “I love to cook and entertain, so I know how frustrating it can be to not have the right tools at your fingertips when you need them.” With one assistant, Eileen opened the doors to Kitchens by Eileen in downtown Lititz. Her fundamental purpose has been to design beautiful areas that transform the way clients and their families use their homes.
With rapid success and growing recognition, Aaron Riddle joined alongside his mother in 2012 to assist in the expanding vision of KbE. As the business continues to evolve, Eileen’s initial purpose established many years ago is shared among a growing team that continues to design tailored and functional spaces.
