“I hired Karen to guide the remodeling of two bathrooms. I had a good idea of what I wanted, but needed her design sense to pull it together and her experience to find the materials (cabinets, tile, etc.) to accomplish that look. Karen was great at listening and making sure she knew what I wanted. She also made sure that she understood my budget, and worked with me to achieve it. She had no problem limiting her work, and allowing me to do some of it to help with the cost. She made great recommendations, but was never pushy with her opinions. She located a number of possibilities for tiles and cabinets to choose from that would give me the look I wanted. She brought them over, and we laid them out, propped them up, etc., until I was able to make the choice. She drew up the design so everything would work together, and made sure that everything would meet code. She looked in regularly as the construction progressed to make sure it was coming together as specified, and consulted with the work crew to iron out any issues. I couldn’t be happier with how the bathrooms turned out.”

“Karen is an excellent listener, which can make a world of difference when you are trying to relay your thoughts and dreams for a space as important as a kitchen. She always made sure she understood our objectives and our limitations before making a suggestion. And the detailed notes she took as she listened proved incredibly helpful again and again throughout our project. Again and again she came up with creative yet realistic solutions.”
