TRANSFORMING WEST MICHIGAN HOMEOWNER'S VISIONS INTO A REALITY

Project Breakdown: Clients Left Hanging

Stephanie and Jim’s home renovation dreams hit a snag when their contractor vanished, leaving their plans for a spacious, modern living area in limbo. Their small, outdated kitchen and the disconnected layout of their home stifled their lifestyle. Stepping in, our design-build firm embraced the challenge, transforming their space by demolishing walls to create a cohesive kitchen and dining area, complete with a central island, a built-in coffee bar, and a relocated laundry room for added functionality. The renovation introduced a fresh aesthetic of crisp white and navy cabinets, elegant quartz countertops, and a stylish backsplash, truly revitalizing their home and turning it into a haven of style and comfort.

Undertaking a range of renovations, including revamping two bathrooms, upgrading the kitchen, and refreshing the fireplace, the project was a big task. They chose to temporarily relocate during the process, trusting us to bring their vision to life, and the results exceeded their expectations. This couple, driven by a love for life’s simple pleasures, aimed to create a space that not only looked great but also matched their personalities and needs. Their kitchen was outdated with limited storage, and their bathroom needed a facelift. Despite a well-proportioned fireplace, its worn appearance needed attention.

How To Include Color To Your Home

We love surrounding ourselves with exciting colors through interior design. Color theory reveals that our chosen colors can influence our moods. That’s why entertainment venues use vibrant colors like royal blue, yellow, orange, or red to create a lively atmosphere. Picture entering a fast-food chain with a burst of pop-up colors and feeling the fun in the air. Similarly, hotel guest rooms employ a soothing color scheme to promote relaxation and help you fall asleep easily.

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.
