My approach as a kitchen and bath designer comes from a career of hands on experience. I believe the skills and knowledge I’ve accumulated along the way give me the expertise needed to be a successful designer and project manager.
Much like a design-build firm, Jim Martin Design works with you on the the design and project management. Typically beginning with an in home consultation, we then offer design concepts, drawings, we make selections, create budgets, firm up our contracts, make a schedule and execute. Early in the process we mutually discern if our company is a good fit for your project and if so we do enter a compensation agreement.

This keeps your original goals and intent at the heart of the process.

"We could not have been happier with the process and the end product of our kitchen renovation. Jim is a pleasure to work with, began and ended the job on schedule, and was extremely responsive to all of our questions and concerns. His attention to detail was so appreciated and the work ethic of his crew was evident throughout the project. We could not recommend him more highly."
"There was never a request too small or a problem too big, he took care of everything with the utmost professionalism. We had a wish list of things we wanted in our kitchen + bathroom + laundry room + pantry renovation that was quite long and he was able to make them all happen."
"We hired him not only to design the kitchen but to be the general contractor as well. He showed up every day, following the progress and making changes that we wanted. The subcontractors he chose were pleasant to have in my home, did a great job and were very respectful our time. In any project in an older home there will be surprises, Jim was always calm and solved any issues immediately. The project stayed on schedule and was finished on time."
