you will find: Convenience, Beauty
Your Curtis-equipped kitchen
can be as convenient as you wish
it—for you design it yourself. It
will be beautiful because the units
are well-proportioned and made
like fine furniture, and the decorating can be "As you like it."
For sanitation, all Curtis cupboards have backs, ends, bottoms,
to shut out ants and dirt.
You will be disappointed if you
buy "cheap," ready-made kitchen
cabinets; or if you have your cupboards made on the job by men
who are not experienced cabinet
makers. Curtis has made fine woodwork since 1866.
"QUITE THE NICEST
CABINETS I HAVE
"Just a note to tell you how
grateful we are for your advice
concerning the Curtis cabinets.
I went to Topeka on the Monday
following the day you were here
and bought them. They are now
installed, and are quite the nicest
cabinets I have ever seen. I am
so thankful we didn't get metal
ones, or have the carpenter build
them. There is really no comparison."

work nor expensive to plan a modern and beautiful kitchen where work
is easily and quickly done—a kitchen as cheerful as any room in the house!
So why not have a kitchen in tune with the times?
With a little thought in planning, good judgment in the purchase of your
cabinets, some skill in decoration, you can achieve an arrangement of orderliness,
efficiency and cleanliness against a background of restful and pleasing colors that
will make kitchen work really pleasant—and much easier.

Planning Department of Curtis Companies Incorporated. Model kitchens were
