Luis began working with the Starck family in 1987 upon graduation from City College, where he earned a BA degree in studio art. He received in-depth training in theory and practice in the visual arts, which set a foundation in design. According to Luis, his experience includes “any room in the house.” During the course of his career, he has produced a wide range of designs including libraries, mud rooms and kitchens, from contemporary to traditional styles. He enjoys listening to the client’s specific working space needs and designing the specifics to fit those needs, such as cooking hearths, hutches and islands. This knowledgeable designer says he loves “the challenge of scaling these components to a room and designing them so they relate well to one another."

“Luis is a very, very patient person. We changed the design of our kitchen 10 times since the beginning. If I had to rate him on a scale of 1 to 100, I would give him a 150. He gave us a lot of options. The layout is just beautiful and he did a magnificent job. He really put a lot of effort and time into it. He’s courteous, personable and goes above and beyond. I had always heard good things about Showcase Kitchens, but going through the actual experience confirms everything I have heard.”

“I hired a decorator for advice, who recommended Showcase Kitchens. Luis greeted me at the door and explained what the company does. I was looking for a specific style, a farmhouse kitchen. I got exactly what I wanted and more. Luis was the main designer. He was very patient. He gave me all the things I was looking for in a kitchen. No detail was overlooked. I was very happy. It’s an amazing kitchen.”

“Our son and daughter-in-law in Manhasset had their kitchen done by Showcase Kitchens and recommended the company to us. Luis was very easy to work with. He was warm, friendly and always available. He designed an entire renovation of our 15-year old kitchen. It’s an octagonal shape and required special attention to details. He was able to make use of the corner spaces. The design was carried out in accordance with our desires, and he listened to my wife’s every whim. We chose bamboo cabinetry with granite countertops. We wanted amber-colored glass to light the upper cabinets, and he was able to incorporate that into the design.”
"From the moment we entered Showcase Kitchens Massapequa showroom my wife and I felt relaxed and comfortable. Lou Viteri consulted with us and took us from design to completion. We are very happy with the result and recommend them highly."

"Luis was absolutely wonderful to work with. He is creative and innovative. I was thrilled to see my kitchen remodel come together. It's just what I was looking for. Living in a townhouse I wanted the look and feel of a New York high end apartment. Luis gave me that look for a very reasonable price. I am very happy and would highly recommend Showcase Kitchens."
"We have heard of Showcase Kitchen because we lived in Manhasset. And that in itself was great luck on our part. We moving to Manhattan and renovating a loft in Tribeca. We had visited all the high end kitchen design places but were overwhelmed by pushy sales people, nose bleed pricing and unpleasant service. We went into Showcase Kitchen. met Luis Viteri and a new kitchen was born. We settled on a CESAR kitchen that is walnut faced to compliment the white washed brick walls. All hardware is German made for precise open and closing of cabinets. Refrigerator and dishwashers were paneled to give a sleek modern yet warm look to the kitchen. The pull out drawers in the kitchen makes accessing to utensils and food seasonings more easy. Luis also suggested extra cabinets underneath the kitchen island which was a wonderful idea. Lastly, Showcase was kind enough to store our finished kitchen until the area in our loft was ready. THAT is called service. All in all a wonderful experience.
