 Remodeling and Home Design


"Normally, everyone talks about the horrors of a kitchen renovation. In our case, however, the process was relatively pain free and the results more than we could have hoped for. A very large part of the success of our project was due to the efforts of Norman Kohl and his cadre of expert craftspeople. It was, indeed, a pleasure to work with Norman and his team. Norman was professional, patient, accommodating and most importantly, he never lost his sense of humor. Moreover, Norman was sensitive to our taste and to our vision of our ideal kitchen. Accordingly, I would recommend Norman and his work without reservation."

"Design it right the first time, this is the reason we chose Norman... From start to finish, Norman managed the multitude of details, the layout, the colors, furnishings, cabinets, carpets and curtains. This was a major project for us. He was as excited about it as we were. This was evident from the very beginning. We now have an amazing kitchen and the perfect plans for the coordinating living room and dining room. We can now walk into our home and feel like it is truly ours... When friends and family ask us, 'Was it worth it?' We always answer, 'Absolutely!' "

-Elizabeth Bentz


"When we relocated our daughter's bedroom we called Norm to help us with the expansion of our master bedroom and main bath. Norm not only developed a floor plan and color scheme, he also patiently shopped with us for furniture, tile, lighting and plumbing fixtures. We are very grateful for his time, talent and willingness to work within our budget. Without his guidance, we would still be deciding where to put the shower."

-Richard & Coleen Koller


"I knew we needed an interior designer when we decided to build the addition to our home. It was Norman who had the vision to see and implement details that others would have missed. His early involvement not only eased the process of making major decisions but ultimately produced results that exceeded our expectations. Now, I just walk through my beautiful home and smile. Thank You!"

-Mary Beth Touey


"WOW! Now that things in the Living Room are back together, the room looks amazing! We love both the shades and the drapes. Thank you so much. You really helped us bring out the beauty we wanted to see... I can't begin to thank you enough for your sense of style and sensitivity in this project!"

-Ker Massengale


"We worked with Norman to design a nursery for our upcoming new arrival... He was very open and made the entire design process feel like a collaboration to ensure we got the results we wanted. Norman did a phenomenal job of educating us while designing the perfect room. He managed the entire process from design to installation ... to make it fun and stress free. When our little boy arrived, our nursery was the perfect serene sanctuary. We continually get compliments on the nursery. It is my favorite room in our home and there is nothing I would change! I can't wait to use Norman again for my next design project."
