We’re celebrating 36 years in business!
Metropolitan has grown significantly over the years, from a three-person company in 1984, into a leader in the cabinet and countertop industry with 180 employees today. Continuously evolving and expanding, Metropolitan has positioned itself as an innovative company in the kitchen and bath trade.
With third-generation family members now a part of the team, Metropolitan continues to reinvest in the company and its growth.

Our story begins with Stuart Elfland and his father Mike, who started Metropolitan Cabinets & Countertops in 1984 to provide high-quality products to the trade. This new family business was fueled by Mike’s kitchen cabinet sales experience and Stuart’s entrepreneurial spirit – and a lot of passion. Their first location is at 295 University Avenue in Westwood, MA
Expansion prompts a move to our current headquarters at 505 University Avenue in Norwood, MA
The third showroom showcasing Metropolitan’s kitchen and bathroom designs opens in Natick, MA
