For more than two decades, one local couple has succeeded in satisfying the remodeling needs of thousands of homeowners.
Sal and Lydia Lozano are the husband-and-wife design team behind Enchantment Cabinetry & Design, an Albuquerque-based home remodeling company that specializes in the renovation of residential and commercial kitchens and bathrooms, while designing and completing projects meant to reflect each client’s unique personality and lifestyle.
Sal and Lydia have more than 25 years of experience working in the home improvement industry. In fact, you might say that cabinet making is in Sal’s genes. He started learning the trade by working side-by-side with his father Sal Lozano Sr., a master carpenter who taught his son every step of the detailed process. Sal takes his craft seriously and hopes customers can see that in his work. “Our objective is to make sure the customer gets what they want,” he says. “They invest a lot of money into these projects and I want them to feel like they got their money’s worth.”
Homeowners looking to get started on a remodeling project are encouraged to visit Enchantment Cabinetry & Design’s 2,500-square-foot showroom, located at 2025 Candelaria Road NE. Inside, visitors can check out samples of bathroom vanities, mirrors, cabinetry, tile, flooring, countertops, appliances, decorative hardware and more, all completed with the company’s standard quality craftsmanship.
The showroom is also where you’ll meet with Sal and Lydia, who will work with you on designing a remodel that will reflect your input and tastes. They will then produce computer-generated 2-D and 3-D drawings of what the finished product will look like and provide you with an estimate of the work, all at no cost.
By including touches like custom cabinetry, stainless steel appliances and/or beautiful hardwood floors, Enchantment Cabinetry & Design can help homeowners create their dream project, says Lydia. “And if you don’t see a sample of what you want in our showroom that fits your remodeling needs, we’ll custom build one for you,” she adds.
Lydia notes that being locally operated has been an advantage for Enchantment Cabinetry & Design, which manufactures its cabinets in a facility in Albuquerque. “So many of our competitors in this industry use factory cabinets made out of state,” she says.
“What also sets us apart from the competition is we’re able to coordinate each project from start to finish,” continues Lydia. “We’re able to do the plumbing, electrical, cabinetry and countertops, so we are basically a one-stop shopping experience for our clients who are interested in remodeling their space. Our customers deal with us directly, so they’re not having the extra stress of working with multiple contractors.”
Lydia adds that working one-on-one with clients has brought in repeat business and new customers through referrals. “It’s not uncommon for us to complete a remodeling job for a client and then end up doing work for their family members, friends or co-workers because of an excellent recommendation,” she explains. “All of us here take that as a compliment.”
Enchantment Cabinetry & Design customers are often impressed with the turnaround time on the work the company does, notes Lydia. For example, homeowners can expect a kitchen cabinet and countertop installation project in about five to seven days.
“We tell our customers to obtain at least two or three bids for a project,” says Lydia. “When they see our estimates, they say we offer competitive price and a high quality of work too. Our turnaround time from estimate to contract is very high.”
Many of the employees at Enchantment Cabinetry & Design have been with the company for over 10 years, including the head of manufacturing, who has worked with Sal and Lydia for 19 years. “Staff turnover is almost non-existent,” says Lydia. “Many of our competitors will sub-contract out their work, but we don’t. When you establish a contract with Enchantment Cabinetry, you can rest easily knowing the people working on your home are members of our team.”
Enchantment Cabinetry has many specialty design options such as curved doors on cabinets, a large variety of hardware, glass options and more. They can accommodate many design styles, including modern, traditional, and eclectic.
Sal notes that many of his customers inquire about the latest styles, but are unsure about what product to choose and what will best suit their home. He says solid-colored painted doors are currently popular, as well as cabinet stains with cherry, walnut or rift oak colors. When it comes to kitchens, many customers are asking for quartz countertops and clean, modern lines. Shaker doors and barn doors are also trending. “We can build whatever the customer wants and construct it to fit into any custom space,” explains Sal.
For homeowners who aren’t sure how to get started on their kitchen and bathroom remodeling projects, an Enchantment Cabinetry & Design representative can come to the customer’s home, listen to their ideas and then use a computer program to render a 3-D drawing of what their kitchen or bathroom will look like once the project is finished. And best of all, the drawing, consultation and estimate are all free. “A lot of our clients like the convenience of having a company that’s going to coordinate their project day by day,” says Lydia. “It alleviates some of that stress that remodeling can bring.”
“We design projects that reflect our clients’ personality and lifestyle,” adds Sal. “At Enchantment Cabinetry & Design, we make sure that every job is completed and that our clients are happy with the quality and craftsmanship throughout for many years to come.”
