About us


Howard Kaplan first started serving Cincinnati’s kitchen and appliance needs when he opened his first hardware and appliance store in 1915. Now, more than 100 years later, family-owned Howard’s Kitchen Studio continues to serve the Cincinnati area as Cincinnati’s premiere kitchen remodeling, design, and product showroom.

We invite you to visit our design center in Loveland, or our design and appliance showroom on Plainville Rd., near Mariemont.  Both of these locations offer kitchen design services, led by our Senior Kitchen Designer, Sandee Daye (CMKBD), and Mariemont Lead Design Consultant, Julie Denning (AKBD). Howard’s Kitchen Studio believes your new kitchen design should be a practical use of space, fit your lifestyle, be free of pre-conceived limitations, and incorporate your architectural style. Our renovation process is led by owner, Mark Kaplan, who personally oversees your home’s kitchen renovation, guiding the work of our experienced and trusted installers.

In addition to kitchen design and renovation, our Plainville Rd. showroom offers a wide variety of quality kitchen appliances to meet your home’s needs, while suiting the style and design of your home. Whether you are replacing one item, or an entire kitchen of appliances, our helpful and knowledgeable team looks forward to helping you find the appliances that are just right for your home.

Finally, Howard’s Kitchen Studio offers the Cincinnati area many other products and services, including countertops, cabinets, tile and flooring, hardware, and cabinet refacing (Plainville Rd. only).
