MP DESIGN is a small woman owned full-service design studio. We specialize in remodels, from full house projects down to a tiny Powder Room redo, or custom built-in cabinetry to paint color consultation. We strive to provide not only well thought through functional designs but also creative and visually pleasing spaces which blend with the existing architecture. We practice a holistic design/remodeling philosophy. Our approach is to take all project aspects in consideration. This includes use of space, furniture layout, budget, value engineering, timing, resale value, etc. We walk you through the process, explaining pros and cons along the way and answering questions while keeping your goals and budget in mind. A fun fact about MP DESIGN: One of our Master Bath designs was featured on the HGTV Bang for the Buck TV show for which it won the challenge. A bit about the designer.
