“Abby and Abbey are very talented and wonderful to work with. They have excellent taste. We remodeled all the bathrooms, the kitchen and redesigned the living spaces. They completed the project on time and on budget. We would definitely work with them again.”
“These designers are amazing ladies. We worked with them for over a year finalizing plans for what started out as a kitchen remodel and ended up being the whole first floor… study, entry, dining room, kitchen, laundry, pantry, wet bar. We were especially impressed with their research into how we lived and what would work best for us. It was a pleasure to work with them and have them oversee our project. These ladies are true professionals and paid close attention to every detail we requested.”
“We went on-line and chose Smith and Ragsdale because of images showing clean and contemporary use of space but with a creative touch of color. The results of our kitchen are spectacular while doing so within our deadline and budget constraints. They took the existing kitchen area and made it much brighter and lighter, using materials and colors that function perfectly for our needs. From conceptual ideas to the most minor details, the job was extremely well designed. The firm was so easy to work with and always respectful of our needs and ideas. The construction contractor and product suppliers were also of the highest quality and a caliber that we had hoped for. We are thrilled to have worked with such a great company and highly recommend them.”
“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!”
