“Our Hall Design Group projects included a kitchen, master bath, laundry/mud room, bookcases, powder room and a guest bath completed between 2011 and 2015. We have done many home renovation projects both before and after our opportunity to work with John, so I can compare John to multiple other design professionals in Cleveland and other cities. John is, by far, the very best we have worked with. He listened to what we wanted, asked great questions, and reconfigured each space to make the kitchen/bath/etc. more functional and more beautiful than I envisioned. He has top-quality contractors and vendors and works with them closely to make sure the project is done according to plan and within budget. Kitchens, in particular, require an expert for functionality, clearances, lighting, outlet placement. John focuses on these details as well as the overall vision. Most important, he is trustworthy and he keeps his word!”
“We discovered John at one of the home improvement tradeshows where we attended one of his seminars. The next spring we visited his studio for a kitchen and bath design class; a year later, we finally got around to hiring him to manage the renovation of our kitchen and bathrooms, as well as updates to other areas of the house. The house was built in 1960 and never updated til now, so John (and contractor Jim) had their work cut out for them despite its small size. Throughout the process – nearly 8 months from signing to completion – John kept us updated and on schedule. His service contacts (painting, flooring, appliances, HVAC, windows, etc.) treated us with great care. It’s a year later and we are still pinching ourselves at the transformation he helped us achieve. We LOVE our new home! Friends and family are amazed at what was accomplished. We would definitely recommend John to anyone wanting a one-stop-shop renovation experience.”
“John, Now that the dust has settled… Thank You!! We love everything about our new home and couldn’t have made it happen without you. We’re enjoying it more everyday, and looking forward to working with you again. Warm regards.”
