Working with Sandra has been an absolute pleasure from start to finish. From the moment we engaged her for our kitchen redesign, I knew we would not regret the decision.

Sandra’s collaborative approach was evident from our first meeting. She invested time in understanding not just our aesthetic preferences, but also how we cook, entertain, and utilize our kitchen space. This attention to detail resulted in a design that not only looked fantastic but also functioned seamlessly with our lifestyle.

I appreciate Sanda’s approach to solving problems. Whenever we encountered a challenge or were stumped by something (and what kitchen renovation doesn’t have those moments?!), Sandra jumped in with a calm and expert demeanor, offering solutions that were both practical and creative. It was reassuring to have her guidance throughout the process.

What truly impressed us about Sandra was her genuine care for the outcome of our project. She was focused on meeting our needs and preferences rather than imposing her own ideas but was also candid if she thought we were going down a path that we would regret later on. Sandra went above and beyond by extending her expertise beyond the kitchen, providing valuable input for other areas of our home, including a suggestion for a perfect lighting fixture for a ridiculously narrow half bath. Her holistic approach made the entire renovation process smoother and more enjoyable.

Perhaps what stands out most about Sandra is her infectious enthusiasm and positive attitude. She made what could have been a stressful project into an enjoyable experience. Sandra’s passion for her work is evident in everything she does, and it was a joy to collaborate with her.

Sandra is not just a kitchen designer; she is a mastermind of design and functionality. We are thrilled with the results of our kitchen renovation, and we owe so much of it to Sandra’s expertise and dedication. We wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone seeking a top-notch designer who truly cares about delivering a high quality result.

We were so happy with Sandra’s work on the kitchen in our main house that we hired her again to design a remodeled kitchen in our guest house. We love how it turned out and how smoothly and efficiently the design process went. Sandy helped us choose materials that enabled the remodeled kitchen to blend in well with the wood cabin interior and forest setting yet feel modern. Her reconfiguration of the space is more functional and maximizes storage. It’s really no wonder she has so many 5-star reviews!

There aren’t enough superlatives for Sandra. She developed the design for my remodeled kitchen, and I couldn’t be happier with how it turned out. More importantly, Sandra made the process headache-free. She thought of every detail and responded to all of my e-mails, texts, and phone calls very quickly. Whenever there was a need to research a question, she did so quickly. She helped me save money so that I could stay on budget. Value for money is an understatement. She’s reliable, talented, professional, and kind-hearted. She was simply a delight to work.

As new construction clients, Sandra took the time to understand our design goals and how we live to optimize the look and functionality of the kitchen. We had ideas coming into the design journey and Sandra was a helpful partner and sounding board. Her thorough process allowed us to hear her thoughtful suggestions and the opportunity for us to share feedback. A talented designer, Sandra delivered on a beautiful, timeless, and functional kitchen for our family.

We presented Sandra with a challenging task to redesign our existing 25-year-old kitchen. Sandra worked with us one on one to fully understand our vision and desires for a modern yet classic kitchen. She guided us through the entire design process, including kitchen layout for optimum functionality, cabinet options, appliance selection, finish details and overall aesthetics of the finished kitchen. Her attention to detail of the revised kitchen layout and measurements proved perfect once the cabinets arrived and were installed. We are extremely happy with our new kitchen and can attribute this to Sandra’s knowledge, guidance and attention to detail during the entire process. We highly recommend Sandra for your upcoming kitchen projects.

Working with Sandra on our 1980s kitchen remodel couldn’t have gone better. From design to execution, she worked with the budget, fulfilling our ideas in remarkable ways. Her advice was spot on, the design perfectly satisfying. The plan elevated our vision. We highly recommend Expert Kitchen Design and wouldn’t hesitate engaging the company again.

My kitchen renovation was a complete gut job. Sandra took the time to understand the function needed to accommodate my family and the budget I had to work with. She made several trips to my home to assess the space and made numerous recommendations to improve traffic flow and increase storage. At my request, Sandra made suggestions on the selection of lighting, tile, and cabinet accessories. She was present and accessible throughout the build process. I could not be happier with the end result and Sandra has my highest recommendation for anyone looking to do a kitchen remodel!

Sandra did an amazing job at rethinking the space for my kitchen. She took a dated, poorly thought out dingy space and made it absolutely wonderful! She listened to how I would use an ideal kitchen, made suggestions for space utilization and then accompanied me to choose appliances, countertops and tile that coordinated with the cabinet color and style I chose from a really large selection she had samples for. She helped me select cabinet hardware, sourced a stainless steel apron front sink and faucet. Really happy with the results!!

Expert Kitchen Designs recently designed a major renovation of our kitchen. We couldn’t be happier with how it turned out! Given the pandemic, we are spending more time in our kitchen than we ever imagined. The kitchen has transformed our entire house – not only are we enjoying cooking in it, but it is truly a warm and inviting place to spend time in. We particularly admired Sandra’s planning and design process and are still marveling at how beautiful the Hickory Creek Cabinetry is. It is clear that she is a perfectionist and works to get every detail just right. We also greatly appreciated that while she gave many valuable suggestions throughout the process, she never tried to foist her own tastes on us but rather respected our own preferences as to layout and style. Sandra is very easygoing, kind and creative and truly a pleasure to work with.

Sandra has been a pleasure to work with on our kitchen/family room renovation. Her expertise is unsurpassed and we were impressed with her vision and attention to detail. Sandra helped us transform our space from “dated and awkward” to functional and beautiful. I trust Sandra completely. She has excellent taste and her consultations were invaluable — we feel lucky to have worked with her on our project and we couldn’t be happier in our new space.

Absolutely loved working with Sandra at Expert Kitchen Designs! I couldn’t have found a better kitchen designer & person to work with. She has everything you would want in a kitchen/Bath designer. She is creative, pays attention to the minute details, listens to all your needs/desires, explains everything, is very responsive and to top it off, a wonderful person. Love my new kitchen and can’t wait to work with her again on future projects.

Sandra helped us through the whole process, with intelligent cabinet design and layout, all the while respecting our personality and needs. She fine-tuned down to the smallest detail, resulting in a harmonious color scheme, excellent efficient appliances, and tasteful integrity of design. Our new kitchen has become the centerpiece of our home, and our favorite place to be.

Sandra at Expert Kitchen Designs has designed two kitchens and several bathrooms for me over the years, and I highly recommend her! She is artistic with her designs while maximizing usability, and she creates beautiful, extremely functional spaces. Her input in my most recent project has resulted in the most beautiful kitchen I have ever owned, and I’m am proud to live in it every day! Thanks for all the great work, Sandra! You’ll be my choice for kitchen and bath design forever!

Sandra stepped in to take over a broken relationship with our previous contractor and was a great balance of personable and professional. She is meticulous and attentive and responsive — all the things you want in a kitchen designer. She was patient with us as we made what felt like endless rounds of decisions — and even when we were indecisive. She also has high standards, which was very helpful when she was at our house for the cabinet delivery, inspected each one, and sent back the few things that weren’t perfect. I also like that she’s as creative as you need her to be , while respecting that you want to stay true to the style of your home. I highly recommend Expert Kitchen Designs.

Sandra was wonderful to work with. She was very communicative throughout our process which is a huge plus. Sandra took the time to listen to us and learn what our needs and goals were with our kitchen renovation. She prepared several different design options for us before we settled on our choice. She helped us with our contractor selection and remained thoroughly engaged throughout the entire process, helping us out with selections and to resolve issues that arose. Most importantly we are THRILLED with the end product. We are truly happy with the space. I’d recommend Sandra to anyone that asked.

When we contacted Sandra, I asked if she would be interested in “a small renovation project”. We wanted to explore creative ways to improve the kitchen and bathroom in our weekend getaway, a log home built in the ‘80s. I thought I knew the limitations of the space and was worried Sandra would turn away such a small project. Happily, and without hesitation, she agreed to meet us.

Sandra immediately recognized potential where we could only see problems. She helped us completely rethink the existing enclosed kitchen and small bathroom. Sandra’s design has given us an open island kitchen with greater storage than before and plenty of space for two cooks. Both the bathroom and kitchen harmonize with the natural materials we prefer and have a timeless, uncluttered esthetic we were looking for.

The project grew organically — Sandra was great, fun to work with and very patient. Both my husband and I are detail oriented and need time to research, discover, or visualize options. Sandra helped move us forward when we got stuck on decisions. We had the added benefit of getting to know Sandra’s husband, Guy Brannock, who was the contractor for the project. The two of them were a dynamo team both creatively and in terms of execution. We quickly learned to trust their experience and their judgment. Now our cabin is as lovely and functional as we had envisioned – a peaceful place for just the two of us and yet better than ever for hosting gatherings of friends and family.
