Smith & Ragsdale is recognized as the premier residential kitchen design team in Texas, offering distinctive, innovative, and truly functional solutions for your home.
“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!”
“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.”
“We started our project with the intent of remodeling the kitchen only. We increasingly became more comfortable with their expertise, professionalism, reliability, and honesty/transparency. We decided to further expand the scope of our project to encompass the family room. Our project is a work in progress and should finish here within the next few weeks. From what we can see, the space has already been transformed to incorporate our functional needs and we have no doubt the finish out will be top notch. They compliment each other so well. Abbey is very technical and has such a deep understanding of both function and design. Abby has such incredible depth in the ability to make sure that the overall details of the design (i.e. material selection, appliances, tiles, paint, flooring, etc..from start to finish) truly transforms the space for the better. We have also retained them to help when needed be the liaison between us and our GC. Having them both plugged into the process has made life much easier and they helped us take some of the burden off in making decisions. Admittedly, we reached beyond our budget to try to incorporate as much of what both Abbeys’ envisioned the space to be. I can say they are very respectful of our budget and truly can work with you in that regard. Lastly, we meet and researched many full service design firms and feel as though not many have the design “depth” as these two – look at their portfolio. Their projects speak volumes. The dynamic duo will forever be top of mind for us when we look to do other projects.”
“We moved to Plano, Texas in July 2015 from New York. Coming from a 1200 sq ft apartment to a 5600 sq ft house was a huge change for us. We were recommended Abby Smith by our realtor and when we met Abby we just loved her vision and ability to put together our ideas into our home. Abby worked very hard on each of our rooms to give it a unique look. We bought a very traditional home and Abby has transformed it beautifully into a modern transitional home to our liking. Abby had many resources that worked within our time line and budget. She communicated with us throughout the project and made us feel as part of the whole process in remodeling and decorating our home. We could not have done this without Abby and would highly recommend her to our other family members and friends.”
“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.”
