Designing Since: 2004
My Background: I pride myself on being an ambitious designer with an endless desire to grow and learn. My career has taken me down numerous paths, first in the music industry and then as a stay-at-home mom, and finally as a kitchen & bath designer. I started in 2004 and spent years learning all the nuances of kitchen and bath design – both through training courses and from designers who had spent decades in the industry. I came to Norfolk in 2011 with 7 years of hands-on design experience, and I haven’t looked back.
What I Love About Designing: I love being able to make the homeowner’s vision come to life. There is a lot that goes into a kitchen or bathroom renovation, and I enjoy the challenge of taking someone’s dream and bringing it to life in their home. Having a client who says, “I love how my kitchen/bath came out!” is so rewarding.
Advice For Homeowners Purchasing A New Kitchen/Bath: Do not second guess yourself! You are the number one decision-maker, and you are going to be the one to use the space… not your neighbor/friend/coworker etc. Communicate your needs to your designer, ask questions, be engaged with the process.
Also, when someone says “Can we add this on later?” …this never happens. Do it all now and be proud of your accomplishment.

So far I am very pleased with my Designer Lindsey Raymondo. She was very accommodating from day one. My schedule was epic and could not meet with her, she jumped on the phone and, she listened to me and custom design a kitchen island that I’m in love with. She is very quick to respond to my questions(they were excessive) and made this stressful process easy. I haven’t received my order yet, but I am very happy with her design and ideias and options she offered.
Also, did I mentioned that she looks for the best pricing too? Love it. Thank you, Lindsey.
We first used Norfolk kitchen and bath Braintree for our son’s kitchen. We were happy with the outcome and used them for our own kitchen. When our daughter bought her condo we used them again. Lindsey was our designer for all of our kitchens. The carpenter on all 3 projects was Steven. They were both excellent and was very attentive to every detail. I would definitely use them again if a project comes up.
This was our first experience with Norfolk Kitchen & Bath. Our designer was Lindsey Raymondo. She was fantastic!! We scheduled an appointment and I brought all the necessary information. She helped us select the cabinets of our choice according to what our finances would allow. She had a CAD-CAM diagram of what our NEW kitchen would look like. The kitchen was a TOTAL remodel. I removed everything to the studs, removed a wall, and removed 3 windows and replaced with one larger 2-pane casement window. I give Lindsey 5 STARS. I would recommend Lindsey and NKB to everyone who wants to remodel their kitchen.

I loved working with Lindsey Raymondo at the Braintree MA location because she really listened to us and offered us her design knowledge. She was very realistic in her approach and would recommend everyone to work with her.

Hi Lindsey, well, we are finally done with trips and would like to invite you by any time you would like to see the beautiful kitchen you designed. I’m truly in love with it, it is so easy to keep clean and I love my huge drawers in the island. You did such a great job that I wouldn’t change a thing! I sincerely can’t think of one thing I would change. So, if you would ever have a chance, we would love to see you and if you have time we’d like to have a toast over a nice glass of wine. Look forward to hearing from you, and seeing you.
We have had quite a few construction projects done on our old home and Norfolk Kitchen and Bath has by far been the best contracting/ home improvement company I’ve ever experienced…The person my husband and I are most grateful to at Norfolk is Lindsey, we really would have not gone forward without her…Lindsey was the first person we met in the Braintree showroom…She came to our home, also did measurements, helped us design our kitchen and coordinate the construction and supplies within our budget..She dealt with our back and forth, change orders, frequent phone calls and overall nervousness with respect and patience..Going forward with home construction is extremely stressful but Lindsey helped us through the whole process, and we truly appreciate her kindness and support..This is a great company with excellent professionals that I highly recommend if you are looking into having your kitchen or bathrooms remodeled!
