"I love our new home!"
Following recommendations from several friends, I added Lisa Gildar to my list of designers to interview for our remodel. Out of four, she was the easy winner, both in price and personality. We found Lisa to be a great listener with experience and wonderful suggestions. We remodeled our kitchen, family room, dining room, and guest bathroom with Lisa, and through her purchased/designed new furniture for those rooms as well as a few other rooms. Lisa designed a new front door for us, as well as quite a bit of our new furniture. She designed spaces that worked well with our existing decor while adding a new feel and look. I cook, bake, and entertain quite a bit, and wanted comfortable, attractive, but most importantly, truly functional spaces in which to work, live, and entertain. We achieved all of that and more with Lisa. We couldn't be more pleased. She worked well with the contractor, architect, and subs, recommended a few subs, assisted us in staying within our budget, checked in on the project when we were out of town, and provided is with updates. Lisa was easy to contact and communicate with throughout the job. It was truly a pleasure working with her, and I love our new home. I have since recommended Lisa to several friends and hope to work with her on future projects.
"She was instrumental in removing a great deal of stress often associated with a remodel"
We worked with Lisa on 3 projects over the past 10 years from selecting customized furnishings for our home, updating the décor in a commercial office space to a complete home remodel. Lisa was very judicious with our time and would organize trips to showrooms so we could accomplish a lot in one day. She was instrumental in removing a great deal of stress often associated with a remodel, stress that was compounded by my husband going through chemotherapy for colon cancer. Most important was her sensitivity to our budget; she helped us adapt our current furniture into the remodel which enabled us to spend a little more on design features such as lighting.
“Every one of her recommendations exceeded our expectations.”
We love working with Lisa Gildar. She is a consummate professional and talented designer. Every one of her recommendations exceeded our expectations. We completely relied on her advice regarding paint colors and her selections were perfect. She listened to our input and incorporated our design ideas to create a living environment that brings us joy every single day. I recommend her without reservation- you will be very happy with your decision to hire her!
"She is a joy to work with!"
We have worked with Lisa on several projects in our home over the past 10 years, including kitchen and family room remodels,and a Master Bedroom and Bath remodel. For each project, Lisa was
attentive to our views, prompt in answering our requests for more information, and professional in every way. Lisa has a keen eye for detail, down to color, lighting, architectural changes, and design ideas. Many of her ideas came about as we explored the plans for each project, and were
incorporated into the final design, as they proved to be a welcome addition to the project. Lisa was always respectful of our budget, laying out alternative plans for each step that would fit our goals and expenses. She is a joy to work with!
"She has an incredible ability to provide suggestions in a way that guided us, rather than pushing us."
Lisa is truly an expert in her space. We really appreciated how she listened to our thoughts and ideas. She has an incredible ability to provide suggestions in a way that guided us, rather than pushing us. Couple that approach with great style and detail, we felt like we were in wonderful hands. I've already recommended her to friends and will use her on other projects, both personally and professionally.
