Kitchen & Bathroom Design
Kitchens and bathrooms are the most expensive rooms to remodel, and yet these two areas will yield the most return for your investment. Because of the architectural details involved in these spaces, and the need to make good decisions on the first go-round, it is imperative to have a professional designer oversee these remodel projects. It will help ensure that resources are not wasted and you get both the functionality and aesthetic experience you are seeking.
Diana is adept at overseeing the acquisition of everything that isn’t attached to the home, and specializes in furniture selection and creating custom-designed pieces for hard-to-fit spaces. She has a rich array of original, artistic resources from which to select lighting, window treatments, rugs, artwork, linens, and decorative accessories, as well.
Additionally, Diana has helped couples and individuals move from sprawling family homes to condominiums or townhomes by applying efficiencies to take maximum advantage of a lesser footprint. She can help you envision the freedom you might enjoy in less space as you consider purchase options, as well.
"I’ve known Diana for almost a year now and I am much better off having met her – and so is the interior of my home! We were introduced when I had decided that I was going to remodel the kitchen in my home in Bend, OR. I had recently moved to Bend from Seattle, WA and it was a surprising and delightful coincidence that Diana was a Seattle transplant too!
I had a very specific idea of what I wanted my kitchen to look like, but structural constraints soon threw the proverbial monkey wrench into my plans. Diana saved the day and, I might add, my sanity! Not only was she able to capture my “image” of the kitchen but added design ideas I didn’t even know I would love. She also laid out a vision for the main living areas of my home that will tie-in beautifully with the new kitchen – a win/win for me!
Cost always seems to rear its’ ugly head whenever a project is being considered. But I have learned that what you spend up front will save you hundreds, if not thousands of dollars later. Not to mention a finished project that you will love, as will everyone who comes to your home, for years to come!
Thank you Diana, I am delighted to have you as a new friend!" – Basia
"I highly recommend Diana Cutler with DC Designs. My partner and I have worked with Diana on the remodel of two kitchens, and both times she perfectly captured our vision and the functionalities to best meet our family’s needs. Throughout both projects, Diana was professional: consistent in her communication, timely in deliverables, and an excellent listener"- Sarah and Chris
