"We are absolutely thrilled with our kitchen and this is down to the meticulous planning and design from Jo. Although we have already lived here for 5 years - Jo's advice and insight really helped in understand what we needed from a new kitchen. We needed a practical and enjoyable family kitchen - one that works for children and adults alike, we wanted a sociable hub and one that would work for many years to come. Jo offered 4 different solutions - with different structural changes (doors / walls etc) and also with a peninsula versus island design. She also offered advice on what may work for us and the pros and cons of each design. In consultation with Jo and on the floor we were able to choose the optimum solution and one which we love every day. Jo was able to help at every stage - with budget, materials, colours and appliances. We are very happy with the result and it works well with the rest of the house too."
Jo was brilliant with helping us redo our kitchen. From recommending layouts, suppliers, tradesmen and materials to actually putting the build into practice and coming to our aid when things went wrong, she was an invaluable support throughout. We've ended up with something that feels really unique and personal to us that has transformed how we live and eat in our home. Thank you Jo!
"Vanessa and Jo recently worked with us on a major re-organisation of our kitchen and on our family bathroom. We approached them on recommendation and were not disappointed. From the outset they worked tirelessly to understand our family’s need for the space and completely appreciated the need for us to balance style with practicality. They suggested a number of space saving options and, because they were so in tune with the style that we were looking to achieve, made the selection process of the cabinetry, equipment and soft furnishings extremely easy. Once the project was underway, they worked seamlessly with the builder to ensure that everything was ready and waiting for the builders as and when they needed it ensuring that there was no “down time” and that the very highest of standards in terms of finish were maintained. In working with Jo and Vanessa, we found a design team who really complement each other in their skillset, really listen to the needs of the client and with an attention to detail that ensured that we were truly delighted with the outcome. We really love the spaces that we worked with them to create and cannot recommend Jo and Vanessa highly enough."
Jo has been excellent. She thought outside the box when it came to the design and layout of our kitchen and has guided us through many of the decisions we've had to make in relation to it. She was always more than happy to assist in any questions we might have and has been a calming influence throughout. We have already recommended her to several friends and family members.
"Our experience of working with Chisholm Design in relation to our kitchen and boot room was enjoyable and stress free Their calm and reassuring approach ensured that even in the midst of a stressful building project, we had absolute confidence that the kitchen design and fitting process was not something we needed to worry about. Our builders constantly complemented Jo on her attention to detail and professionalism, and also commented on how much they enjoyed working with her. They were always accessible, quick to respond and forward thinking, and used similarly professional suppliers which ensured that the end result was something quite stunning. I can't recommend them highly enough."
"Thank goodness for Jo! After finding myself in the lucky situation of being able to totally renovate our kitchen I realised I actually didn't really know where to start and liked too many styles. I struggled on, trying to work it out myself and badger friends for opinions etc but felt stuck...then someone mentioned Jo. She came straight over and sorted me out. She guided me through different style options, having spoken in depth to me about what I thought I wanted and liked. Then drew a number of different scaled designs and layouts to think about. I changed my mind a few times along but she was alway patient and understanding. The final result was stunning, more than I'd anticipated. I couldn't have got there without her!"
I couldn’t be more pleased with the fabulous kitchen that Jo has helped us design and install. It really is exactly what I wanted, it looks beautiful and works so well. Jo took the time to ensure that the design would really work with my requirements and happily answered the hundreds of questions that occurred to me in the middle of the night. Everything ran really smoothly and Jo was even able to ensure that I had the bespoke shelves that I had set my heart on. Thank you so much Jo - such a fantastic service.
"Jo was fantastic to work with. She offered stylish, innovative and practical ideas. She was flexible, committed and delivered far more than we expected within our agreed budget. She was also able to come to our house regularly to finalise ideas and oversee the installation. I have recommended her services to all our friends and still love my beautiful kitchen."
"Jo was great to work with and we are thrilled with our kitchen. She is a busy mum and a cook, which meant her design works brilliantly for us as a family. It's a pleasure to cook in and we couldn't have done it without her. Thanks Jo! Wouldn't hesitate to recommend her."
"We didn't know how to start choosing a kitchen, let alone getting it fitted but Jo really helped kick start that process for us. We have a small kitchen so we were limited in what designs we could choose - Jo explained our options (more than we had realised!) and put forward some creative ideas which we followed through on. The kitchen has made an incredibly positive difference to our home life and our moods! Jo is helpful, responsive and was very adaptable to any issues that cropped up by suggesting practical alternatives. She was a pleasure to work with and we wouldn't have the gorgeous kitchen we now have had it not been for Jo's valuable input, ideas and support."
"For several years we contemplated replacing our rather worn out and very dated kitchen but struggled to agree on what sort of kitchen to go for, modern or traditional and baulked at the cost. Fortunately a friend recommended Jo to us, I found her very easy to work with and she guided us through the numerous aspects that needed to be considered. The "mood board" Jo produced was a useful document to refer back to when faced with co-ordinating all the different elements. Jo also gently dissuaded us from making some bad choices and was able to recommend local suppliers and tradesmen who helped keep the costs manageable. Without Jo's help I don't think we would have the lovely kitchen we have now."
