A Note From Our Lead Designer…

As unbelievable as it might seem, perhaps the most important benefit of replacing the corner pantry is increased storage.  Based simply on appearance, you might think a walk-in pantry offers more space.  If, however, you consider that typically only two of the pantry’s interior walls are useable, you might rethink this long-held belief.  That’s because today’s millwork cabinets provide a myriad of design possibilities that can double – or even triple – storage capacity (as well as efficiency and accessibility) over traditional pantries.  Dana George


A Note From Our Construction Manager

If a client wants to keep their existing hardwood, it’s challenging to fill in the flooring gaps exposed when a room’s layout changes.  Our installers did an excellent job of splicing in salvaged material to accommodate the new design.  The transition between existing hardwood and salvaged is virtually seamless.  Danian Fauth


A Note From Our CEO

One of our greatest rewards is helping clients realize the hard-to-see potential of their spaces.  Then, we thrive on creating that “aha” moment when the vision becomes reality.  Jason Meyer


A Note From Our Clients

We can’t say enough good things about our new kitchen.  From the design (top notch) all the way to the finished product, Renovations by Hearth & Home delivered and exceeded our expectations.  Project was delivered on time, and they were very helpful and thoughtful talking us through the entire project (especially at that point where your old kitchen is gone, you’re looking at the studs, and realize you’re at the point of no return) 🙂  We’d not only recommend them to anyone, we look forward to calling them for our next renovation project.


Key Contributor - Josh Williams

The backsplash tile design was a huge component of this kitchen makeover.  Josh went above-and-beyond to ensure the “random” pattern was actually thoughtful and deliberate.


Key Supplier

A backsplash can truly amp up a kitchen’s “wow” factor.  And this three-dimensional JulianTile did just that.  Thanks to JulianTile and all our suppliers.  Every great renovation requires great trades.
