For many years I dreaded taking on the kitchen renovation we so badly needed. I was paralyzed by the sheer number of decisions to be made and I had no idea how to get started in any direction. Then I found Vered. She was just what I needed. She completely understood where I was at.
She brought me ideas and helped me visualize them using a variety of tools (large color and material swatches, superimpositions, 3D modeling), but she wisely brought me a tractable number of ideas so I never felt overwhelmed. This allowed me to remain engaged and excited about the whole project. With each idea we discussed, she listened attentively to my reactions, until we together discovered the look I wanted: white cabinets, dark grey quartz counters, warm wood floors – and tons of light! Once that was decided, she brought me her suggestions for a few white paints, a few dark quartz countertops, and a few backsplashes. When I got stuck, she made great suggestions that guided me along.
Of course, it helped enormously that she has excellent taste and exquisite design sense. She helped me avoid mistakes by explaining to me why she felt one or another choice might not work the way I wanted it to – and her reasoning was always sound.
She worked very well within my budget and never once pushed me to something I wasn’t keen on. She was also extremely flexible, ready to revisit any decision until we were both comfortable that it was the best decision.
Finally, and this was very important to me, she is simply a pleasure to be with. She’s extremely intelligent and kind, insightful, and cares enormously about doing a great job and making sure her clients are happy and at home with their renovations. I would hire her again in a heartbeat.
