History & Team
Matt is a Maryland resident and began in the business fabricating custom laminate countertops and cabinetry with his father out of a shop in Edgewater. In 1992, Matt and his father along with other family members started About Kitchens and More, Inc. at the current location on Hudson Street in Annapolis. Business continued to grow and flourish until 2007 when the economy took a turn. Matt regrouped with his wife to form About Kitchens and Baths LLC with the hopes to keep the name and continue the family business under different leadership and a different business model. New cabinet lines were brought in, new granite manufacturers and new employees to name just a few of the changes that were made.
Our business model always puts the customer first and our employees are treated like family. Employees work closely with each other and are involved on each project. Come experience the About Kitchens and Baths difference today!
Matthew Trivane – Owner
In the industry for 29 years, Matt has installed thousands of kitchens and has designed just as many. He is a 20/20 and an Auto CAD and CAD certified designer.
