We interviewed 4 designers for a complete redesign of our kitchen and chose Tom of TRS Designs ~ best decision we made! We liked his extremely low design fee with the option that the fee would be applied to our cabinet purchase. For such a major undertaking, this made it a no-brainer to at least see what he would design.
Tom's vast experience was obvious early in the design process and his honesty and respect for our opinions AND budget were key to our success. We were able to discuss many ideas with him and get honest responses and Tom never pressured us on a timeline or forced his ideas. Rather, he gave us the Pros and Cons on ideas we had which enabled US to make the right decisions and stay within our budget.
The biggest surprise was how much Tom was involved AFTER the cabinet purchase:
1. Personally inspected every cabinet and arranged for replacement of one damaged in shipping so we didn't have to do a thing!
2. Accompanied us to several granite yards
3. Supplied information on sinks
4. Obtained discounts for us with Flooring and Appliance vendors
5. Worked extremely well with OUR contractor during the installation.
We are very grateful to Tom for designing a kitchen that greatly exceeded our expectations in appearance and functionality ~ and came in ON BUDGET!
Everyone says it looks like something you see in a magazine ~ we think they are right! Thank you, TRS Designs!
