We hired Jim Kuiken Design during our new home build in Wayzata, MN. What began as a new relationship, developed into Jim being the designer that we will always work with on any home project we pursue.
We had lived the past 22 years in a more traditional style home and we were looking to create an open, airy and more of a contemporary cottage style home. It is rare to have a designer that not only understands your vision but clearly can design in all design styles. Rare! He is amazing to work with and does a fabulous job of balancing areas to invest in and other areas to save some money. This balance is really important – no matter what your budget. He would be our go to designer if we decide to build a more traditional style home as well.
I also loved that he was an amazing listener to how we lived our lives, our likes and dislikes and only then did he weigh in on trends in design. I loved that he took our ideas and exploded them into truly a unique vision and greatly stepped up our look.
I wake up every day – walk into my kitchen, go into our master bath, look at our gorgeous fireplace and it makes us so happy. That’s when you know you have worked with the best designer – you begin living and truly wouldn’t change a thing!
If there were 6 stars – that is how we would rate him! Thank you Jim.
Highly professional and organized, Active listener, and always met deadlines!
