Many of our clients live in older homes where the location is perfect but the kitchen is not. We have come to realize that kitchens today must serve many functions. Homeowners want entertainment centers, gathering spaces and home offices, as well as the maximum amount of storage and counter space. We also often get requests for special spaces like breakfast stations, coffee centers and pet feeding zones. We've found that every family's lifestyle is unique.

Our first step is always to ask in-depth questions before beginning design. Once we figure out the room's many functions and traffic patterns we will design several floor plans incorporating custom solutions to fit your family's needs.

Catherine Heir

I enjoy kitchen design because it allows me to use my creative side and my problem solving abilities to achieve the most functional and beautiful environments for my clients. I love that each day is different and that no two projects are the same.

Catherine is a graduate of Harrington College of Design in Chicago with a bachelor of fine arts degree in interior design. As a child Catherine delighted in drawing floor plans of her ideal future home and spent much time re-arranging her parent's house. She is extremely proficient in computerized drafting methods, and is often complimented on the amount of detail included in her plans. She has been designing kitchens and bathrooms for 5 years. Catherine recently won an award from the National Kitchen and Bath Association for a Kitchen project which is soon to be featured in Better Homes & Gardens: Kitchen & Bath Ideas Magazine.
