Kitchen & Bath Remodel by Chris Kittrell

“Working with Chris Kittrell has been a fantastic experience. She is helping me space plan and design my new home, and I couldn't be more satisfied with all of the work completed thus far. Projects will continue for the next several months. So far she has helped transform my home by working with me to select new furnishings, including: designing a custom desk and bookcase for my home office; custom nightstands for a guest room; window coverings; paint, wallpaper, and lighting. We are currently remodeling the powder room to turn it into a "jewel box." Future projects include creating a custom glassed-in "wine wall" with lounge seating in my living room - I cannot wait! Chris is a very talented and experienced designer who is extremely organized, patient, responsive and efficient. She is careful to listen to what I like, but is not afraid to respectfully provide her opinion if she feels that something I have suggested will not work. I am certain she has saved me from a few very expensive mistakes! Significantly, Chris is very respectful of budget, and when I look at the results in my home (aka my sanctuary), it is very clear to me the value I am receiving for her services. I would highly recommend Chris and her team to anyone looking for an interior designer.”

Kitchen & Bath Remodel by Chris Kittrell

“I've dealt with a number of designers, over many years and houses, and Chris was (by far) the easiest to work with. I hired her to help me with a bathroom and casita remodeling project at my home in La Quinta. She wasted no time creating a design and establishing a budget for me to approve. We quickly realized the project needed to be split for the best result, and Chris got right to work making the First Phase happen against a very tight deadline. She designed the project, supervised the contractor, watched out for pitfalls, and kept me informed all the way. Despite some change orders I initiated, the project got done under the wire. Her recommendations were both beautiful and realistic financially, and the outcome is gorgeous. I'm really looking forward to Phase Two!”

“We had the pleasure of working with Chris for our remodeling project of 2 bathrooms in our house. Chris is very knowledgeable and experienced. She answers our emails immediately to address our concerns and prepares the drawings and measurements meticulously. At the outset, she's very clear about her fee schedule and her invoices are clear and accurate. She checked on each stage of the work as it finishes and everything is completed as promised. We enjoyed working with her and will definitely use her service again in the future.”

“Chris Kittrell is amazing! This was our first experience with a decorator and kitchen remodeling project. She was very organized, thoroughly knowledgeable, and enjoys every aspect of decorating. Our kitchen is perfect for our family. We appreciate her honesty and ability to incorporate the things we love into the design... a real plus! She listens and communicates promptly regarding e-mails and phone call in a timely fashion. Even driving to the project when necessary to make sure everything is done correctly. Her team of associates are equally helpful. The referrals we have used have had a professional demeanor and definitely want to please.”

“Chris has designed many rooms in our home. She designs based on our contemporary style and welcomes input from us. She is resourceful at finding quality furnishings that fit into our budget. We appreciate that she is prepared and time efficient when she meets with us. She manages all aspects of the project and we have recommended her with confidence to several friends.”

Kitchen & Bath Remodel by Chris Kittrell

“We hired Chris Kittrell and Associates to help us with the remodeling of three bathrooms, a powder room and the kitchen. We did not want to extend the outside walls and Chris was able to maximize the space efficiently within the frame of the house. She recommended a contractor to us to do the remodeling and managed the whole project from start to finish and on time. She respected our budget and our style, while making recommendations for improvement. Chris is a pleasure to work with and always pays attention to details. She is very knowledgeable in all areas of design and space planning and has a lot of experience, working with different styles of homes and budgets. We are very happy with the results and feel we are in a new home without moving. Our bathrooms, powder room and kitchen are both elegant and functional at the same time. We got a lot of compliments! We highly recommend Chris Kittrell and Associates!”

Chris Kittrell, Allied Member ASID

“We have contracted with Chris Kittrell, Kittrell & Associates on multiple projects with vastly different design criteria and project time lines. In each instance she has delivered results that captured the character of the home we envisioned! Chris always starts the project by listening to the vision we have for the home. She asks questions and follows with pictures that depict the style and general feel we are describing. Once we are in agreement on the design direction Chris gets to work and creates plans for each room. She accepts feedback well and cheerfully makes the design adjustments we request. Chris also has a constructive and gentle way to ask the difficult question "are you sure you really want to do that?" These healthy discussions typically help to avoid design mistakes. Chris is remarkably organized and does a terrific job of managing the project to meet time and budget goals. She researches and tests all the trade professionals she recommends to insure the best possible work and fair pricing. She is on top of every detail, is easy to work with, and makes a potentially stressful project a joyful experience. We give the highest possible recommendation to Chris Kittrell and are truly thankful for her dedication to making our home exactly what we desire.”

Kitchen & Bath Remodel by Chris Kittrell

“We hired Kittrell & Associates to renovate multiple baths in our home. There are just no words to say what a privilege it has been to work with them. They were able to take our vision and make it something we will enjoy and be proud of for years to come. To say that Chris Kittrell is the epitome of professionalism and expertise would be an understatement. Going far above and beyond our wildest expectations. We are so grateful for the beautiful work she and her team have done.”

Kitchen & Bath Remodel by Chris Kittrell

“Chris Kittrell is amazing. We did an extensive remodel of a custom home built in 1965, and wanted to stay true to the mid-century-modern style of the house. We also wanted the house to have a simple, serene quality. Chris helped us succeed on all counts. Because of her extensive experience, she not only helped us achieve the look we wanted, but she also was indispensable when it came to all the logistics. For example, working with the contractor and plumber on placement of plumbing valves. We would have had no idea how to approach this, or a hundred other issues, without her guidance. On a personal level, Chris has a direct, take-charge style that is a comfort when you are in the middle of an overwhelming and confusing project. At the same time, she is highly sensitive to what her clients want. She listened carefully and incorporated our wishes, and most important, was not shy about telling us when she thought our ideas would not work well. We really appreciated that! Chris is very good at working as part of a team, not only with us, but also with our contractor and his many subcontractors. We can't recommend Chris highly enough, for projects both large and small. We shudder to think what it would have been like going through our remodel without her!”
