I knew what I wanted from a functional standpoint, and KHI delivered that in style that is the envy of our friends. In addition, KHI helped us find contractors who were even more persnickety that we were. The work was done on time, in a quality way, and with an understanding that we needed to live in the house while it was being worked on.
As we have a need to remodel in the future, we will continue to call on KHI to help us convert our dreams into reality.
Karen is as good as it gets. I started out working with a designer from my cabinet supplier on a layout for my kitchen. We could just not get it right. I brought in Karen Hill and he reviewed the proposed prints, provided several options, that the kitchen company did not, and turned the project from a bad design to a model project. She revised all the prints in a collaborate effort. From there she took the ball and completed the project with specifying granite, plumbing fixtures, flooring, paint, and window treatments. I smile every time I walk in the kitchen, so much so that I have now commissioned her for the remainder of the house. We are starting at one end and not stopping until we are finished. It is a very exciting process that stems from her enthusiasm and professionalism.
Karen Hill INTERIORS transformed my homes in Pittsford and Canandaigua into updated spaces that blended both existing furniture and furnishings with new acquisitions. The design of each house is unique, beautiful and functional. Wonderful job!
Your talent for selecting wall colors and artwork for a “vanilla” suite of offices, now provides us with a warm and pleasant atmosphere for our clients. It also unifies each partners and assistants offices, while allowing their own unique touches. You were able to listen to our needs and goals and come up with a design plan that all 7 of us liked.
HHI was fantastic to work with! The time spent upfront to get to know me and what I wanted to accomplish with my kitchen and family room renovations has paid off twofold. I love everything about her. They presented the ideas in an organized and detailed manner which helped making decisions easier for me. HHI is professional, attentive to details, and a lot of fun to work with.
KHI brought an impressive skill set to the table – a perfect blend of design experience, professionalism and innovation coupled with great listening, project management and follow-through. KHI spent quite a bit of time upfront interviewing me, listening to and understanding my goals, visions, what I liked and didn’t like. KHI had an impressive arsenal of resources, products and services that eliminated the burden of my shopping around and doing lot of the legwork which could certainly be overwhelming and time intensive. We enjoyed a wonderfully collaborative relationship. KHI was always receptive to integrating my dreams and ideas into the design process and treated me as an equal partner in the process. KHI presented the recommendations with clear rationale and never once forced ideas on me if I simply was not comfortable.
The end results: Truly extraordinary and transformative!!!! Our new living spaces are fresh, sophisticated, far more optimized and a wonderful retreat for us. There is absolutely no question that I would not have been able to achieve what I call the ‘WOW factor’ if I didn’t enlist the talents of KHI.
I can’t wait for my next project!!!
My husband and I decided to build a house. With so many decisions to make in such a short time, we knew we needed a professional designer to help make our dream home a reality. I actually found Karen Hill on Houzz. With our first phone call, I knew Karen was the designer for us. She totally understood the look that we were going for.
For our project, we already had blueprints of our home. Karen reviewed them and suggested some structural changes. Her suggestions improved the function of our home. We were actually able to see the changes on her drawings before they were implemented. Seeing our home on her computer design really helped us visualize what our home would be like.
Karen worked well with our contractor. She was at our home when it was being built and specified where ceiling lights were going to be placed, light switches, outlets, pendants, chandeliers, sconces, etc. I can’t stress enough how important these elements are and my husband and I were impressed with her knowledge.
Karen helped design the exterior of our home as well. She showed us different samples of siding, stone, garage doors, doors, lights, hardware, shutters, etc. With so many choices out there, Karen understood exactly the look we wanted and made it happen.
Karen helped us design our kitchen, great room, bathrooms, office, and bedrooms. She reconfigured the original layout and helped us maximize space.
She was beyond amazing with helping us pick out cabinets, countertops, flooring, hardware, paint, tile, faucets, appliances, bathroom plumbing, light fixtures, mirrors, and furniture.
Karen’s expertise saved us so much money, time, and stress. We would tell Karen different things we liked and she would come back with beautiful selections in our budget.
Karen is incredibly organized and was completely dedicated to our project. Every step of the way she was there. There were so many times I would call, email or text Karen throughout this process because I needed her opinion. She was always professional and I trusted her vision. I highly recommend Karen Hill.
Thank you, Karen, for helping make this house our HOME!
After discussing removing two walls in our galley kitchen, we were astounded at the visuals provided.
The now open floor plan is a show stopper for guests who visit our dream retirement home in the village. Thank you again, HHI, for designing and creating a living space that complements our lifestyle.
Downsizing was a pleasure because of you.
We hired Karen to help us with ideas for remodeling our kitchen. Karen’s help was spot on and we ended up remodeling most of the first floor. The ideas and insight that Karen brought to us proved to be right on with what we wanted. Karen worked well with all the contractors whether it was one she brought in or one that we had brought in. The quality of the work done is top shelf and the value added to our home is on point. Our project was completed on time and within our expectations.
Thank you Karen.
The room design and color renderings provided were instrumental in closing the sale of a large project. Her professionalism, attention to detail, and ability to quickly make changes exceeded our expectations.
Your help in fine-tuning the color selections for our new home eliminated the overwhelm and uncertainty of our decisions. Your input ensured a cohesive look throughout the respective spaces, adding a subtle, yet wow, effect. We love the selections, and your help in taking the indecision out of our decision making.
THANK YOU so much!
KHI changed the entire feel of our home, and allowed us to fully utilize our space. We began working with Karen in 2008 when we decided to put in a new kitchen, new flooring and carpeting throughout our home, as well as complete bathroom remodels, and fresh paint and moldings. We were overwhelmed with all the decisions and choices, but Karen made it easy, from making paint color recommendations, to cabinet choices, and carpet and flooring options. She was truly involved in our project every step of the way. She helped us avoid costly mistakes. She listened when we told her how we wanted to use our space and when we described the way we lived. We were happy with every recommendation she made, from colors to contractors, We are delighted to say that our home is now our favorite place to be.
