Dear Kaye and Catherine:,
I just wanted to let you both know how much John and I LOVE OUR NEW KITCHEN!!!

We are so thrilled with how everything has come together and are simply loving the utter beauty and superb functionality of the space.

No one--especially John and I--can believe our lovely new kitchen can be the same space from which we began renovations one year ago. The transformation from a dark and dated kitchen to a customized, state of the art and fabulously light and bright kitchen is truly remarkable!

I am deeply grateful to you both for all of the excellent work you did from the early idea/planning stage through the completion of the construction. Though you had all come highly recommended from several friends who had used and also loved your services, I was worried about how disruptive the process could be to our family's life here with all the decisions to be made and potential disruptions due to the construction. Honestly--the only difficult thing about the whole process of renovation was having to say goodbye to you all. Each of you were so helpful, kind, supportive, and fun through the process and I just can't thank you enough for all you did to make our kitchen and life during the renovation process so wonderful.

Thank you, thank you, thank you & please stay in touch as you mean a lot to us Parkers!

Our very best to you both,

Deanne and John Parker

Dear Kaye & Catherine,
We wanted to drop a letter of thanks for the beautiful kitchen you designed for our Deer Park home. Throughout the 5 months of construction, it was exciting to see our old outdated kitchen transform into a state of the art kitchen that is not only roomy but functional as well. The end product has turned the kitchen into the center of activity in our home. Family and guests tend to congregate around the island and never want to leave the room.

Your services made the experience pleasurable and smooth. Your professionalism and skills took a lot of the anxiety out of the entire project. Your honesty was very refreshing and we came to truly value your opinion. You helped us out a number of times when decisions needed to be made quickly and we really weren't sure which way to go...especially the unexpected soffit issue. I still can't thank you enough for your guidance on that one.

Thanks again for all your help.

We look forward to working with you on our bathrooms in the coming year.

Dear Catherine,

It is hard to believe that it is nearly 2 years since we came to you asking for a "WOW" kitchen. We had some idea of what we wanted but never could we have imagined the awesome kitchen that we now have.

The design that you worked up for us is not only outstanding but extremely functional. We were limited as to what we could change because this was a remodel but you worked wonderfully with what we had. We were able to use space that was seemingly wasted and the work that you put into using every inch of the space was a great value as well. You have an eye for detail and made sure that every little detail was worked out. We could not be more pleased with the end result.

We have also been very pleased with the quality of the cabinets which you recommended, as well as with the final decision making on other items. You were always available for questions and meetings and we really appreciated the way you worked closely with us during the entire design/construction phase.

We have done a lot of entertaining since its completion and people are absolutely amazed at the transformation. The kitchen used to be a dark bottleneck and now is bright and roomy and works so much better with the large groups of people that we have entertained. We even hosted a fundraiser last year with 75 people. This would not have been possible with the old kitchen design.

We plan to stay in this house for a while, but realize as well that when it is time to sell, the kitchen remodel will be the biggest asset that we have to offer. This was money well spent. We look forward to working with your again in the future. Thank you for making our kitchen remodeling a huge success.

I am very well pleased with the whole kitchen design process. Kaye and Catherine thought of everything! I can open my dishwasher and oven and still walk around it! My old kitchen was not like that. Most people you talk to after a renovation usually have things they would do differently if they were to do it again, but not me thanks to the skills of dea design . They listened to my needs, my family lifestyle and things I never would have thought of to put together my dream kitchen. I love my kitchen. I strongly recommend you have them take you through the design process. They are experts and their experience makes a difference. If you want to really love your kitchen, call them!

Hi Kaye,
Thank you so much for the wonderful job you did on our kitchen/laundry room/family room remodel.

From the first meeting until the final punch list was signed, you and Delta Renovations made us feel completely comfortable with the entire process. We initiated our conversations with you because you were recommended for "thinking outside of the box". That is an understatement!

Having four children, it was important for us to have a kitchen that was user friendly and warm at the same time. You were able to accomplish those objectives while keeping within our budget and time constraints. Our kitchen and bar/computer area in the family room are constantly in use and after 2 years of completing the project, I wouldn't do anything differently.

If you ever have a prospective client that would like to speak with us, we would be happy to say  that we would work with you again and on a scale of 1-10, with 10 being the best, you earned a 10+ in our book.

Take Care and we wish you and Catherine the best,

Dear Kaye & Catherine,
Kent and I are truly enjoying our kitchen, laundry area and mud room. The kitchen is much more functional and the laundry area is a godsend. I'm no longer looking at our piles of shoes in the kitchen. We want to thank-you for all of your time and effort (and patience!!!). Our home would not look as beautiful as it does without your vision and talent. We wish you continued success.

Dear Kaye & Catherine,
If the kitchen is the heart of the home, you and Catherine just completed a successful transplant here! Thank-you so much for your incredible guidance and expertise. Our kitchen is much more than we dreamed of- and we thought we were aiming high! It's really been a pleasure working with both of you, and we were thrilled with the results.

Dear Kaye,
We just wanted to thank-you for designing a beautiful bathroom for us. We love it! We feel fortunate to have met you. You came up with a bathroom that is exactly what we wanted, which is pretty amazing since we didn't have any idea what we were looking for. Thank-you for all the work that you did, the bathroom is perfect!

Kindest Regards,
Mike & Anne Pearce

Just a little something to say thanks so much for all of your guidance, patience and professionalism. You were truly a delight to work with- the perfect balance and mediator! I absolutely love my "new" old house and it feels like home now. . . thanks to you. Best wishes and many thanks again!

Dear Kaye,
It is hard to know where to start in putting into words the wonderful job you did in designing and facilitating the remodeling of our kitchen and master bath. The quality of your work and commitment to customer satisfaction could not have been any higher. You very accurately and intuitively interpreted the look and feel we were trying to achieve in both spaces and then searched for and suggested the materials to make those visions into a reality. The time you devoted in the kitchen to developing a detailed inventory/storage plan was invaluable in the long-term functionality of the room as well as in moving back into the kitchen quickly and easily upon completion. Thank-you Kaye, for your creativity and thoughtfulness.

Martha Blus

I just wanted to say a big "thank-you" for my new kitchen. It's all I hoped for and certainly utilizes every inch of space. Plus it's really easy to work in! I'm very pleased to show it off. Thanks again so very much.

Dear Kaye,
Thank-you for your professionalism, talent and patience. We love our kitchen. It is exactly what we had visualized. Walking into the kitchen is delightful.

Sally & Tom Hilgendorf

Dear Kaye,
Just a note to let you know what a joy it was working with you. Your attention to detail, talent and perseverance make you a real treasure! Our need to "think outside of the box" and design a more accessible kitchen for our daughter was a challenge that did not deter you at all. Our project was a long one, and I must say that in working with you, we enjoyed every single step.
