Keri did an awesome job helping us update our kitchen. She was very easy to work with: she was always on time to appointments, gave us plenty of design options, and didn’t get annoyed when we asked her a bazillion questions. We love how our kitchen turned out and plan to hire Keri for future projects. We highly recommend Kp Spaces!

Keri Petersen of KP Spaces is nothing short of amazing. She took what was an awkward space in our home and transformed it into my favorite hang-out space. Keri selected furnishings, artwork, rugs, and accessories that fit our design sensibility and the style of our home. Keri is resourceful, creative, and has incredible taste. Not to mention, she may be the kindest person you will ever meet. Hire Keri. You won’t regret it!!

Keri transformed our tired 1935 home into the updated, bright and comfortable space we wanted. She is an excellent listener and quickly zeroed in on our style. She saved me hundreds of hours by finding the perfect paint, lighting, and window treatments. Keri improved the layout and selected new furniture to complement items we chose to keep. Keri designed the master bath of our dreams in our new addition and guided us in the selection of all the materials (tile, flooring, furniture, fixtures and lighting). She is the perfect mix of impeccable style, creativity, motivation and resourcefulness. We have a long list of future projects we can’t wait to get started on with Keri!

Keri has been integral in our kitchen remodel. This is an entire gut job, and from the beginning she has been available and responsive. I appreciate that she sourced all the materials and brought samples to our house for us to decide. I had a general idea of the feel I wanted and working with Keri brought that to life. A week before we ordered cabinets my husband and I made a last minute change in color theme and Keri was e-mailing us real time to make sure our questions were answered. I completely trust her taste and am very happy we hired her.

I have worked with Keri for years and she is always professional, on time and has an amazing talent for staging. As a real estate broker – I heavily rely on her ability to make my clients homes show the best they can – and she consistantly provides results that both me and my clients are happy with…thanks KP Spaces!

the Burning Questions

We know you have them

What should I have prepared when hiring a designer?

It’s helpful to have an understanding of the project scope, a rough budget for construction, furnishings and design fees, and inspiration photos of certain styles that resonate with you.

How is a design project structured?

We have a clear, outlined map of how we get our clients from Point A to Point B. We follow the same process every single time for reliable, predictable results. That way, our clients have a clear understanding of what they can expect throughout the process, and what the milestones and deliverables are along the way.

What is the value of having a designer present during the construction phase of a project?

During the construction phase you should always expect the unexpected. There is always something a contractor will uncover that may impact the execution of the design. You want a designer on site to help navigate these unexpected bumps in the road, who can advise and pivot towards solutions that keep the design intent intact.

How long does the Design Process take?

Every project is unique, but creating a design plan for our clients usually takes between 6-16 weeks. The execution phase can last anywhere from 4-12 months, depending on the project scope.

Why work with an Interior Designer?

An interior designer is a trained specialist who can help you create a vision for your home. Aside from your home, your time is your most valuable asset. Working with a designer allows you to get your time back, so you can focus on what’s most important to you.

By working with a design expert, you will avoid costly mistakes and time-consuming setbacks of trying to do things on your own. Ultimately, a designer acts as the liaison between the contractor and client. They are a valuable team member who will be your advocate, ensuring that the vision for your home is executed accurately.
