As the co-owner of the company my days can be pretty unpredictable but are always rewarding. I have been with hōm kitchen + bath and bath for about eight years, and I have 21 years of field experience. My favorite part of the job is hands down seeing client’s reactions to their newly renovated space. If I were to advise potential clients, it would be to take the time to make sure you get exactly what you want out of the remodel. It’s an investment, so you want to get it right, so you won’t have to do it again for a long time. Remodeling revamps your home and adds a new burst of energy into the living space making it a worthwhile investment.
A regular day for me consists of me meeting with new and potential customers to discuss what they would like us to do for them. My favorite part of my job is leaving a project that we have beautified and knowing that they will get to enjoy a new perspective of their home the day after we leave. My advice to anyone getting started on a remodeling project is to research the products you are considering and ask lots of questions. Getting exactly what you want and making sure those products live up to your expectations is key. So if you're hesitant to get started on a project my advice to you is just to do it and know when it's all over its more than worth the disruption.
As the lead designer I spend my time working on my own projects while also assisting the design associate and part time team in helping to assure their take-offs are correct and their cabinet drawings are ready for processing. I am also the showroom manager so I am typically the go-to on general product knowledge and brand information. I have been with the company for almost five years and have over 12 years in design field experience. If I were to advise homeowners on what they need to get started on a remodeling project, I would say to hop on Houzz & Pinterest and collect all the things you like in one location to the share with your designer.
Interior Designer, Principal
Being an interior designer means I spend most days jetting off to site visits with remodeling clients, chatting with customers that come into the show room and creating cabinet designs and floor plans. I have been with hōm kitchen + bath for three years, but I’ve been in the interior design world for 11. I would have to say my favorite part of the job would be When we first see a potential remodel project and ideas start forming in my head. Envisioning what can be done in a space to make it not only more aesthetically pleasing but functionally better is what gets the creative juices going for me. My advice, to potential clients who are nervous to remodle would be to think about if you are going to be living in the space for the next 5-10 years? If so, do some personal homework regarding style and function that you want to see in your space and establish a budget. Always expect a detailed outline and estimate of what the job will entail and cost. Finally, when you jump off, expect some bumpiness in any construction project. However, if you have hired a trustworthy, competent remodeling professional, your project should give you years of enjoyment and add value to your home.
As the account manager I work with builders, retail, commercial and remodel customers all day and I love it. I enjoy the result and seeing how happy the customers are with the choices that I help them make. I am also always looking for new stone and quartz to offer to our customers. We prioritize customizability here so we can usually meet everyone's needs while staying within their budget. I have been with hōm kitchen + bath for eight years and I have 13 years of experience in the world of stone. My advice to potential clients is just to do it! It will be like you are in a brand new home.
While I used to handle many design and project management duties within the company, I have transitioned into a role of purchasing, inventory management, and administrative support. This new role fits well with my part-time work schedule, as I balance my career with raising two young children. I have been with hōm kitchen + bath for seven years and have been in the interior design industry for 13 years. What keeps me excited about my job is helping customers create spaces in their homes they will enjoy. Home is such a substantial part of our lives. We go there to retreat and rest; we entertain; we parent, etc. It is fun to see customers happy with the spaces I helped them envision and create. You spend so much time in your home. It should be a place you create memories with friends and family. If there's something in your home that bothers you, take the steps toward creating the space you really want. We at hōm kitchen + bath are here to help!
Each day at hōm kitchen + bath is always different and exciting. From exploring new tile, quartz, granite and cabinetry options. To helping our Customers envision their perfect living spaces. The environment is fun and friendly. I've been with the company for a year, but I have had an overall of 19 years in the new construction/interior design/remodel business. My tip for getting started on a remodeling project is to Select a design concept that you love and stick to it. Too many outside influences are BAD! My one peice of advice is to ask for a quote that includes all of your wants. Then you can get a true picture of the investment. You can always adjust from there.
I can say with confidence that there is no "regular" day at hōm kitchen + bath. Each day presents a new set of challenges and opportunities which keep it interesting and keep us learning.

My father was a custom builder in rural Mississippi and I worked for him throughout my childhood and into college. Since getting my degree I have worked 9 years in an engineering capacity designing high voltage power transmission lines, and I have worked 6 years self employed in the residential construction industry. Residential construction/carpentry has been in my family for generations. I truly enjoy this type of work, and always felt I would remain in the field throughout my career. I honestly feel it is in my blood to do this type of work. Come into our showroom and see our product and talk to our people, you won't regret it!
