We’re a family-owned business, which is a huge reason as to why we consider each client part of our family.

Welcome to the Delight In Designs family!

We could not be happier with our new kitchen designed by Leah Velzen @ Delight In Designs! The new layout with the island creates great flow and organization. We absolutely love the cabinetry with the 2-tone colors. The tile, lighting and brushed bronze accents give such beautiful aesthetics.Leah did a fantastic job putting special features into our cabinets as well. From the knives and spatula drawer, the spice drawer to the pull-out pantry shelving drawers. We ended up with an elegant yet functional kitchen that felt like home right away.Leah was always on top of the schedule and provided great follow-up with any questions that came along. ~ the Noordykes

Great design staff. We already had a contractor and I’m disappointed that we were not able to use the Delight in Design crew. The dining room cabinets were an addition so we didn’t go with our contractor for install. They did a great job with attention to detail. In fact they took the time to adjust things in the kitchen, tightening up hinges and leveling doors. Something they did not have to do. Would highly recommend the whole team.

We had Delight in Designs design and install new countertops, sinks and faucets in our master bath. They arranged for countertop template, installation and plumbing hookups. We asked that the tear out of the old sinks and countertops be included in the bid, which wasn't. In the end, they made things right, because of that we can give them 5 stars on their job and professionalism.

Jessica was amazing to work with. She staged my home that I had for sale in Rockford. The furniture and accessories she selected were beautiful and made the house feel very classy. I highly recommend Jessica and her team. 5 stars.
