Designing Since: 2008
My Background: I have always been amazed how so many people, like myself, have dreams as a young person of doing one career or another but end up in another direction. I went and graduated from H.S with a Cosmetology degree, but have been in the design field for about 13 years now. Life took me on the path that was meant for me.
What I Love About Designing: I love meeting a whole variety of people from all walks of life and hearing their stories. Watching a renovation from start to finish and seeing the dreams of new kitchens and/or baths come true. I have made many friends over the past years just spending so much time doing what I love.
Advice For Homeowners Purchasing A New Kitchen/Bath: My advice to homeowners is not to overthink things. I have met many people who have picked things out, fell in love but kept looking and stressed themselves out, just to go back to what they chose in the first place. Choosing your bath or kitchen should be exciting, let it be that, and let me help you do it!
Fun Fact: I love fishing, kayaking, football and Hallmark Christmas Movies. My husband, my son and I love going out fishing any opportunity we get, whether it be in the boat in the kayaks or on the ice. I could watch Hallmark Christmas movies all year long.
I had a wonderful experience working with NK&B Framingham, most especially with designer Jessica Katinas. My journey started in March 2022. The initial meeting with Jess, I knew I had the right designer for my full kitchen and bath remodel. She is friendly and listens attentively. I told her what I did not want and what I liked. She led me right to the perfect items to be selected. The process of doing a full house renovation was overwhelming, but working with Jess made it more manageable. She was quick to answer emails and texts. A massive delivery arrived in late August and contractors began the work. We just moved back into my home on November 15th AND we love our new kitchen and bath! Thanks Jess!
Our designer (Jess K) was terrific. She listened to the top features we wanted and to our complaints about our current kitchen. She quickly sent us designs and then worked with us to choose the flooring, cabinets, tile and counters. Due to supply chain issues, the tile was not available and she worked with us to find a suitable replacement that worked out even better! We love our new kitchen and would recommend Jess. Customer service was very helpful when some of our pieces did not arrive in a delivery. We began discussions in late June and had a working kitchen in early December even with supply issues.
I work[ed] with Jessica Katinas on several projects, always surprising me with her intelligence and sophisticated designs, I highly recommend her!!!
