Designing Since: 2011
My Background: I have a Bachelor of Fine Arts, and studied drawing, painting and woodworking while in school. I spent 4 years designing kitchens at a big box store, and then 7 years at a fast paced lumber yard. I love working with builders as well as homeowners.
What I Love About Designing: I love getting to know people. I think the most successful designs happen when both the client and designer are engaged throughout the process. Kitchen design is a collaborative process. It’s fun, it’s challenging, and it’s rewarding.
Advice For Homeowners Purchasing A New Kitchen/Bath: Don’t be afraid to put some of your personality into your project. What you like is more important than what others think you should do.
Fun Fact: I have both freshwater and saltwater aquariums at home. They add a whimsical element to my living space. Fish keeping is one of my favorite hobbies because it helps me decompress and stay creative.
Examples of Shayna’s Work:
Shayna worked with me in the design and initial phases. She was knowledgeable and went above and beyond to make sure I was comfortable with all decisions throughout process, even coming out to my house and taping out exact measurements of new cabinets to help visualize! Lee and Tyler helped with install and were also very professional, personal, and good at their job. They took the time to explain various things to me and paid great attention to detail. I am very happy with final product and the process in general. Would work with Norfolk again!!!
Shayna was very knowledgeable and patient with helping me design my new kitchen island. Lee and Tyler, with the install team were great. They took their time with the installation and made sure I was happy every step of the way. I would absolutely recommend Norfolk Kitchen and Bath, and I will use them again for our next update project!
