Dedicated to Creating a Better Home for You!
At Solstice Kitchen and Bath, our team believes that a remodeling project is much more than just ripping out and replacing cabinets. It is an opportunity to breathe new life into a home, and a chance to reinvent your home so that it reflects your current lifestyle. Home renovation allows families to better utilize the space they have and to enjoy a better quality of life. It offers a precious chance to keep families in the home and neighborhood they love, rather than having to move.
Solutions Designed With Your Goals in Mind
We understand that helping families achieve their goals is a great responsibility and we take our role in assisting customers with this transformation very seriously. We take time to get to know our clients and their homes, to understand how that family operates, and to uncover what they want to get out of a remodel.
Meet Our Founders
Derek and Scott are the owners of Solstice Kitchen and Bath, where Derek is the lead designer and Scott manages all project installations. They each bring 20 years of experience in the building and remodeling industry, plus a love of innovative design and craftsmanship. Their long-lasting friendship and professional partnership grew from working together in the construction industry in Baltimore for over 5 years where their understanding of how to get the best results from a home remodel evolved. This led them to establish their own company where they could own the end-to-end design and remodeling process.
Solstice Kitchen and Bath is a genuinely small, local business. Both Derek and Scott live and work in Crofton, they are each married with small children attending local schools, and they have a unique understanding of the region’s homes. Derek and Scott are your neighbors and place great value in the trust they have built in their community as residents and local business owners.
Owner, Lead Designer

His introduction to the construction and building industry came when he worked with a local Annapolis builder from 2001-2002. This builder constructed houses from the ground up and did major home additions in the Annapolis area, which gave Derek a wide range of experience in home building, carpentry, and structural work.
From there he moved to Baltimore, where he met Scott and they started working together in gutting and rebuilding homes. Like Scott, Derek worked in construction ripping out and rehabbing Baltimore townhomes for about 3 years. He then branched out into kitchen installations and finish carpentry, further honing his experience and craftsman’s skills. He also did all the tile work for the bathrooms and kitchens in these homes. Derek worked at the ground level doing…See More
Owner, Lead for Installation and Project Management
Scott’s path to a career in home design and remodeling began several years after graduating from Penn State University with a Bachelor of Science in 1999. In 2002 he started working in general construction and carpentry in Baltimore. His scope incorporated full gutting and rebuilding of row homes. With three years’ experience in construction under his belt, Scott’s role evolved to specialize in kitchen cabinetry installation, hardwood flooring installation, and finish carpentry.
After working on everything from knocking down walls to additions to finish carpentry work, Scott realized he could provide a better service by owning the entire design and remodeling process end-to-end. In a work environment where every stage of the process was managed separately by different individuals, he was inspired to see a better way to successfully design and implement a project.
By working on site every day, he gained valuable insights into what works in a design and what does not. His experience enabled him to recognize what.…See More
