“We have worked with PKB DESIGN on a basement remodel, kitchen remodel, new build home, and commercial office space (law office). They are awesome to work with.

Client Experiences

Everyone who enters our home immediately feels it reflects exactly who we are.  We couldn’t ask for anything more.  It is truly a reflection of us, our personalities and how we live.

- Staci S.

I had the distinct pleasure of working with PKB DESIGN during a hotel construction project. They were always professional. PKB DESIGN exhibited their experience and knowledge throughout. I would highly recommend; and look forward to working with PKB DESIGN again.

- Carl Y., LP Ciminelli

We were very happy with the level of expertise PKB DESIGN gave us. Professional and patient when trying to make decisions! They were always there when we needed them. Highly recommend!

- Vanessa M.

PKB DESIGN helped us design our home on one of NY’s Finger Lakes.  PKB listened carefully to our preferences and observed our choices in our current home. Given the difficulty we had envisioning our new environment, they were able to virtually “read our minds”. We are delighted with the results: Kitchen layout, cabinet choices, window treatments, paint colors, tile, flooring.  We have exactly what we wanted. Highly recommend PKB DESIGN if you want amazing results!

- Linda and Ray B.

Each time a visitor enters my home they rave over the place. It's because it's beautiful and tasteful. It flows and it's functional. And it's just what I wanted. Very professional team to work with. I highly recommend PKB DESIGN for big or small jobs.

- Carolyn W.

PKB DESIGN was awesome! I hired them for a new design of my living room. I wanted to get the best design of my space. Besides the new furniture layout, my design included new stone over my fireplace and bringing it to the celling with new built ins on each side. It is a showstopper!! PKB is very professional, knowledgeable and a delight to work with.

- Carol Z.

This spring I tackled the job of redecorating using a red chandelier as the focal point. I was overwhelmed with where to start. PKB DESIGN was up to the challenge! They started with questions directed toward my tastes and preferences. From there they suggested different ideas on placement of my beloved chandelier as well as a furniture layout. It was exactly the start I needed. I most appreciated that PKB allowed me to create a space that reflected me and was always available and helpful with any questions I had. I was very pleased with the end result and would recommend PKB to anyone because they listen to the customer and then offer their expertise.

- Joyce F.

PKB DESIGN did a wonderful job in seeing an eclectic space with specific needs. They created a cohesive space that gives the comfort desired as well as a tasteful environment. The space receives numerous compliments on both elements. They were also aware of our budget and kept everything within our parameters.

- Fr. John D., Saint James Church

We had the pleasure of working with PKB DESIGN as we transformed a post office built in 1939 into a home for the Community Foundation. From the first meeting, it was clear they understood our needs, our wants, and our budget. The project was remarkably well-managed. Having PKB as our go to throughout the months of renovation, we were spared numerous hours on the phone and at meetings with the construction team. The end results are stunning. People comment constantly about the beautiful color choices on both the walls and woodwork. On a personal level, PKB is a joy to work with. Communications are timely and clear, meetings are focused, and the creative team is top-notch. I highly recommend PKB DESIGN and hope to work with them again in the future.

- Randi H., Community Foundation

The thing I most appreciated was the effort of PKB DESIGN to learn of my preferences and style, and to then make suggestions and selections that would best match, rather than simply making selections that meet current trends.

- Ferris A.
