We are a full service remodeling company that specializes in full design and build projects. We do kitchens and baths, laundry rooms, closets, entertainment rooms, bars, mantles, home offices, bookcases, and more. The same care, enthusiasm, and attention to detail is given to all of our projects, regardless of size.
It begins with a dream. A dream of a better layout, a little more room, more storage. Perhaps, you have always dreamed of honing your inner chef skills or entertaining friends and family more frequently, but your current kitchen works against you. Maybe, you have always dreamed of a bathroom that felt like your own private spa, or a laundry or mud room that stopped the kids mess before it enters the rest of the house. The peace that comes from an organized space, allowing you to enjoy your home and family.
Our first studio was located in just 500 sq. ft of space in a 100 yr old building in Lemont, Illinois. Within 5 years we expanded our showroom by doubling our space. 20 years later, with a little more space, we continue to reside in that grand old building. As the building has seen several renovations, so have we.
Throughout the evolution of our business, our goal has always remained the same. Help our client realize their dream space while providing outstanding customer service every step of the way. To us, customer service begins the day you step in to our showroom. Our method is simple, really. Listen, observe, and educate. It is, ultimately, a compilation of those things that bring a project to life.
There is no shortage of design magazines or books on the shelves of your bookstore, library, or grocery store. So feel free to research what you like and what you desire for your project. Our first step is to see what inspires you - what photos spark your interest and what's on your “wish list”. So go ahead and dream.
Compiling a “wish list” is an important first step. Equally important is establishing an investment range. Once you have considered the two, you are ready to make your first appointment. Our initial meeting will be learning more about you…..how you live, cook, and entertain. If it is a bathroom or other room, we want to know what is lacking in the current space, who will mostly use the space, what you are hoping to achieve. We want to see tear sheets, photos and web pages. We want to learn what inspires you.
Before we begin the design process, we will have helped you establish an investment range, one that is practical, based on real information. We will show you projects we have completed as a guideline to help you visual different price ranges. We will discuss differences in products to ensure your budget meets your aesthetic tastes.
Once we have thoroughly understood your goals, we will begin the design work. There are many layers to this stage, each explained thoroughly as we go along. We will present floorplans for your approval, assist in decision making, advise on product selection, and coordinate with subcontractors. Essentially, we guide you every step of the way. You will become familiar with each of our staff members, as we approach each project as a team. We believe in a collaborative effort, one where homeowner, designer, staff, and trades work together toward the common goal. The goal being the realization of your dream project.
