“I would like to share our amazing experience with Smith & Ragsdale Kitchen Design.
We began our home building process in 2014 and enlisted their help to design our kitchen.
From the very beginning Abby and Abbey were engaged in the process and dedicated to designing the kitchen of our dreams. Every detail was addressed, including specific dimension of cabinetry and drawers for our dinner and cookware, custom placement for our appliances, and appropriate accessibility to accommodate our family needs. In fact, my wife is a baker, and they spent a great deal of time designing a beautiful appliance wall with various styles of drawers and cabinetry with backsplash and lighting to perfectly store and showcase her bakeware and servingware collections. Their expertise and eye for asthetics resulted in a gorgeous statement wall for our kitchen. Every step of the way during the design process they had a knack for understanding our visions and converting them into reality.
After the drawing and preliminary design process, we began to design the appearance of the kitchen with cabinet style and color of our selection, counter top materials, appliances, and tiling that would both be unique but also match the appearance of the overall home. The final product of the appearance was a perfect blend of our preferences and their expert opinion.
During the installation process, they oversaw the entire process, from the cabinetry, to the appliances, the decor & lighting, and the counter tops. Their attention to detail allowed for a smooth transition and installation.
Lastly, as with any large project, there will always be some issue whether it be minor or major during the process. For our scenario, the sourced vendor did not install the correct refrigerator. To their credit, Smith and Ragsdale, handled this very complicated scenario with great professionalism. They gave us their full support and “went to bat” for us to get the desired refrigerator that we had requested.
Overall, we truly could not have asked for a better and more professional service to make the kitchen of our dreams. Our kitchen has met the the fundamental requirement of being beautiful but also incredibly functional. Every aspect has been customized to match our specifications and needs. As a family with young children, we spend a significant portion of our family time in the kitchen. With the help and guidance of Smith & Ragsdale, we have built a space that we will share countless memories in. They truly delivered on producing the kitchen of our dreams!”
“Abby is very sweet, knowledgeable, and has great taste. As a contractor, I appreciate when a designer helps the clients to see the overall picture and can get them focused on making quick decisions to move the process along. It has been a pleasure working with her.”
“What do you do with a kitchen from the 70’s that has white floors, dated appliances, 3 entry doors and is in need of a major over haul? You hire Abbey Ragsdale! We spent time talking with her about our family and how we use our kitchen and how important it was to have an easy to clean, open concept kitchen. Her design for our kitchen fits our family perfectly! We could not have been more impressed with her professionalism, her ideas, her taste and her talents! We absolutely love our new kitchen and are currently working with her on one of our bathroom remodels. She will be with us a long time, as we have 3 more bathrooms to go! I highly recommend Abbey for all of your home designing needs!”
“It was a pleasure to work with Abbey on our remodel of the master bathroom. We had an extensive wish list and she listened to all our ideas. When we had to scale down a few wishes in order to keep within our budget, her ideas helped us without feeling as though we lost the “wow” factor that we wanted in the bathroom. Her attention to our wishes and her attention to details made the experience of working with a designer enjoyable. We would work with her again in a heart beat.”
