KITCHEN & BATH DESIGN
A kitchen and bath should not only look beautiful, these spaces also need to be well designed. How will these rooms relate to the rest of your house? Your home's architecture? How will your family will use this space? Not only are kitchens and baths the most expensive rooms in your home, they also impact a home's overall value. It is also important to consider trends. We can help you make design choices to ensure your space can weather the trends, while creating a room that you love.
WHAT WE DO
FINISH & FURNISHING SELECTION
Every finish and furnishing selection makes an impact on your overall design. This can be very overwhelming. Not only does every selection need to go well together, it is important to understand where to place the finishes and how to balance all of these elements in your space. Every material and color has undertones and it is vital that these undertones coordinate well together. Done correctly, these selections will give you a cohesive and beautiful design.
Our Space Planning services suit each client’s specific needs, requirements and taste. We make the best use of available space. We create layouts that effectively transform your space into fully functioning ones that make sense. Contact us today to see what we are able to do to for you.

What People Are Saying
"When I began working on my home renovation, I had a loose idea of the look I wanted. Christa not only helped me fine tune that vision, she suggested changes to the layout of my kitchen that significantly increased storage, counter space, and functionality. She helped me source the most beautiful materials I would have never found on my own. The kitchen is now my favorite room in the house and a gathering place for all of our family and friends."
"We were getting our home ready to sell. Christa helped us choose finishes for our kitchen and bathroom that were cost effective and appealing to buyers. She also made recommendations as to what needed replaced and what didn't which saved us time and unnecessary expenses. The day we put our house on the market we received 3 offers over the listing price!"
"I had new finishes selected for my kitchen and with just a few questions and explanations, Christa showed me how the items I had picked were all wrong. She helped us make the right choices to get the look we were going for. All through e-design!"

HOW CAN A DESIGNER SAVE ME MONEY?
Not only can a good designer save you money, they will also save you endless hours of frustration and stress. How much did your finishes and furnishings you want to replace cost you? Did you love them? Did they add value to your home? Were they trending at the time and now totally dated? A designer can help you find the right items at the right prices that add value to your home and reflect you, not just what is trending. In guiding you to make informed choices, a designer will help you avoid costly mistakes. Informed and well thought decisions are also reflected in better design results.
I NEED HELP, BUT AM CONCERNED I WON'T LIKE THE END RESULT.
This is precisely why we have a client based design philosophy. Through a partnership with you, we specialize in gaining a complete understanding of your vision. To be unhappy with an end result indicates a failure in communication and/or the design process. We know when a client is unsure or "settling." In these situations, it is crucial to know the right questions to ask and clarify any concerns. It is okay to take a breather before moving forward.
WHAT IS EAST NINTH'S DESIGN STYLE?
We don't subscribe to any certain style. Our client's preferences, the architecture of the home, and budget will dictate the design direction. We do avoid overdone and "cookie cutter" styles. As such, the design process is a collaboration to find ways to bring out our client's personality in each space.
DO YOU WORK WITH SMALL BUDGETS?
A big part of what we do is help our clients set a suitable budget for their needs. There are several misconceptions in the marketplace today about design costs. We help educate you on the value of items and how to maximize whatever your budget is.
DO WE NEED TO USE YOUR CONTRACTOR OR ARCHITECT?
Not at all. We will work with your builder or tradespeople. You will not pay us for construction related labor, this is between you and your contractor. Acting as a liaison between you and the contractor, we are your advocate. Effective communication is essential to ensure your vision is interpreted and realized.
DO I HAVE TO MAKE PURCHASES THROUGH YOU?
No, you do not! You are welcome to make any purchases on your own. Sometimes making your own purchases can save you valuable time and money in the design process. It also allows you full control over any customer service or warranty related issues if they arise.
