C & S Brown Kitchen Remodel

This space really opened up after taking out the wall between the kitchen and dining/living room and made for a great entertaining area. Our client had a vision for something more modern but transitional and with a little 'bling' in the lighting.

Client Testimonial

Our 1979 kitchen was in need of a serious remodel so we contacted Design Works to help us with our project. Monica Renfro spearheaded our project and got us underway. We started out with a budget and she outlined what everything would cost. We weren't very good at keeping to our budget but she kept us well informed when we picked something that went over what she had allotted. For example we spent more money on higher end appliances and on our lighting. They completely gutted our kitchen and took out a wall. Don Manfred came out to our house with a construction expert who analyzed the project. He determined that a beam had to be inserted as we had no bearing wall. They took the info to an architect who determined the size of the beam. Even Don "got down and dirty" and helped install the beam which wasn't an easy task.

Monica was fantastic in scheduling the project and her goal was to finish the project in a timely manner. She created a calendar so we knew who and what was being done at our house every day. If there were any changes she was good at letting us know. She helped us in our decision making of cabinet design, countertops, tile, flooring material, paint color etc. She gave us "homework" so at each stage of the project we had made our decisions so that the project would go forward. There were a lot of design decisions to be made and sometimes it was overwhelming but she helped us in making up our minds. She was very easy to work with and so was Don. After the project was completed we felt like we had lost our new best friends as we were no longer communicating every week!

Our friends and relatives have complimented us on our new kitchen and we are enjoying it every day. We highly recommend Design Works for your new project!
