We have a great attitude. We are
passionate about doing kitchens right. We have a positive "can do"
philosophy. Who wants to work with someone who
doesn’t care as much as you do. Don’t settle for just anyone. You want
better ideas. You want better results. We want to earn your business and
always believe we can.
John Ryan has 30 years of
experience in kitchen design and remodeling in the Cincinnati area. However,
all experience is not equal. The best experience for a kitchen designer
involves innovative problem solving from initial design through the final
installation — not just putting room dimensions in a computer to make a
layout that fits.
We put our experience to work for
you every step of the way. After working out the design ideas that work best
for you, we oversee the ordering of all materials as the first step to an
organized installation process. The construction and installation are
carried out by our own company employees along with selected trade
contractors. Each job is supervised closely by John—visiting each job daily
to answer questions and deal with any issues as they come up.
We purchase major components like
cabinetry directly from the factory, allowing us to be very competitive with
pricing from anyone—including home centers and cabinet outlets. We plan
thorough, complete jobs that include the detail and accessories that each
customer wants. We listen to each customer to make sure the project we
design is on target with style, function and budget. We use innovative ideas
and suggestions to achieve design goals.
We stand behind our work.
