Your kitchen is the "Heart of your home"

Your Kitchen is the "Heart of Your Home"

Your kitchen is the “heart” of your home.

It seems like no matter where it is located or what the size, your kitchen is where family and friends come together to break bread and build relationships. Considering its crucial contribution to the house and those who matter most to you, you want your kitchen to be functional, inviting and comfortable. 

A professional interior design firm specializing in kitchen design can help you bring your kitchen to life.

Design and Layout are Crucial in the Kitchen

When it comes to your kitchen remodel, the most important part is deciding on a functional, efficient layout.

A professional designer can come in and evaluate your space, ask questions and get ideas about what you want in your kitchen and determine your budget.

From there, you decide together if redesigning the layout is part of the plan and if not, what enhancements you are going to make to improve the functionality and atmosphere of your kitchen.

Combine Beauty...

When people come into your kitchen, you want them to say, "Wow!"

The right usage and blend of colors, textures, lighting and materials can make all the difference in the world in the look and feel of your kitchen. The perfect home kitchen is not only designed to make cooking and preparing meals easier, it should have a warm, inviting feel to it that attracts people.

Choosing the right color and wood for your cabinets, the right style and positioning of lighting, the best materials for your flooring, the best counter tops and the colors for your walls and back splashes all contribute to the look and feel of your kitchen.

A professional designer can work with you in choosing the right combinations that not only breathe new life into your kitchen, but also capture your individual personality, style and energy.

With great design, you don't get just a "look" - you get an energy that permeates through your home and that energy is shared with everyone who lives or visits your residence.​

With Form and Function...

For form and function, The triangle is one of the most important concepts of kitchen design. This involves the three defining parts of the kitchen: the refrigerator, the sink, and the stove.

For maximum efficiency and ease of use, you want these three to be arranged in such a way that they form a triangle. Unfortunately, not all kitchen dimensions are created to meet this standard.

This is where the input of a professional comes in handy; if your kitchen already has the Triangle, a designer can help enhance the functionality of that design. If your kitchen doesn’t have one, a designer can come up with options for re-positioning these key items.

Focus On Quality

When we work on a project, we use the highest quality materials and appliances that our client’s budget allows.

Not all brands are created equal and as an interior design firm, we have special relationships with vendors and contractors that allow us to get top-quality items that sometimes aren’t readily available or affordable for the general public.

As part of your design project, we will work with you to pick the best combination of materials and appliances for the look and feel you want with an eye on getting the highest quality we can.

We choose materials built to last so that you can enjoy your new kitchen for as long as you are in the home.

When I decided to turn my bonus room into a media room as a surprise for my husband, Joanna was the one person I knew who could get it done. We had exactly two weeks from start to finish, and one mistake would send the entire project spiraling out of control. The project was completed on time (actually a day early) without one single glitch. Every subcontractor showed up on time, with the correct materials, and was a professional at their craft. I could never have asked for a better outcome and Joanna was a master at directing each step of the project. I have used her on additional projects since, and would never consider a home remodel without her expertise and guidance.

My wife and I hired Joanna Barker of Inspirations Interior Design, Inc. to assist us with the interior design of our home. Joanna is a very talented designer with a great eye for color. Something that impressed my wife and I most was Joanna's ability to listen to our vision for our home, and then provide us several excellent options for furnishings and paint colors that translated our visions into a reality. As a result we have a home that we are very proud of, and have received numerous compliments.

I am an Electrical Contractor with over thirty years experience. I have been working with Joanna for the past several years and she stands out amount the many contractors and designers I work with. Joanna takes on every project with the same dedication each and every time. She turns out projects that are both functional and beautifully designed. I highly recommend Joanna for any design project.

We needed help! We had just purchased a 3200 sq ft condo built in 1988.

The floor plan was from another era having an enclosed somewhat isolated kitchen with low ceilings and builder grade cabinets and soffits in all of the wallpapered bathrooms, faded wood floors on the main level and mirrored madness in the master bath Our son had recently used the services of Inspirations Interior Designs Principal Joanna Barker and encouraged us to call her. He and his wife told us that her guidance would be invaluable and decisions easier and more informed when such a professional was involved.

Joanna was amazing! She has the ability to understand our style and bring finishes to us that we may have never considered. It was so interesting working with Joanna. She is so kind and generous of spirit and was well respected by the contractors with whom she collaborated. We took down walls and added others to achieve the desired openness and flow in our home. She was always available and was flexible when design elements needed to be reconsidered.

Her flooring design in our entry and main level is the envy of the neighborhood. All of our finishes throughout our home are so beautiful and top notch. Joanna's abilities have given us a new home of which we are so proud. We were so blessed to have worked with such a wonderful, caring and talented designer.

Joanna has so much experience and was very professional in her approach to my unique project. I was all over the place with ten different things I wanted to do to my home and she was able to understand my priorities and break it down into doable chunks so that my entire house would not be turned upside down.Thanks to Joanna renovating my house was very fun and I am so excited with the results that I cannot wait to come home each day from work!

Joanna Barker partnered with Stu Hunter of Hunter Construction to design, plan, permit and build our downstairs family room and outdoor patio last summer. I was impressed with Joanna's knowledge about color, use of materials, and furniture spacing. She was on time for meetings with us and accurate and fair with her scope of services and pricing. I have already recommended her to other friends and clients because I know she has the integrity and professionalism to follow through and make me look good.

Joanna Barker and her team listened to our ideas and helped us transform our lackluster space with their inspired design. They showed intuition, understanding of our tastes and vast knowledge in their work process. They set our expectations correctly, were organized and finished our job ahead of schedule! Throughout the process Joanna was always available. We could not be happier!

Joanna Barker was recommended by our contractor when we began our home remodel. At first, we were not interested in hiring an interior designer. While we hesitantly agreed to meet with Joanna, it turned out to be the best decision we made. Joanna's professionalism and graciousness made the job seamless and effortless. She took our ideas to a new level, making a dramatic difference in the final result. Joanna's color, material, layout, and cabinetry choices transformed our kitchen, family room and game room. Throughout the remodel, Joanna always was available to answer our questions and provide a helping hand where she could. Her designing and interpersonal skills went above and beyond any expectations we had. We are incredibly grateful to have worked with Joanna.
