Client Testimonials

It was a pleasure working with Joseph Rodrigues (JR) on our complete remodel of our kitchen (which is pictured on We are so happy to wake up to a glorious kitchen with a breakfast nook & coffee bar every morning! We get so many complements on the colors, layout, appliances, and timeless style and we couldn’t have done it without JR. He also worked with us on the redesign of our fireplace, wallpaper in dining room, new area rugs, and paint color and new flooring throughout the entire house. JR did a great job getting to know our style, personalities, budget, timing and the overall vibe we are looking for in the design. JR is very talented and gives great advise, but more importantly he is a good listener and extremely patient. He spent a lot of time listening to what we were trying to accomplish and he was able to present several options for us to choose from for each stage of the process. He was always professional and paid attention to all the details we would have overlooked. He connected us with vendors and suppliers to help us lower the costs of the overall project. He knows the timing on supplies, which during these crazy times, was very helpful. JR is very dedicated to his clients and goes above and beyond to make sure everything is perfect. He drove the process and always kept us on-track with things we needed to do. JR made some design suggestions that we would have never selected on our own and we’re very happy we went with his recommendations. We would use JR again on another project and have recommended him to friends and family. JR loves his job and it shows in his beautiful designs. Thank you for everything JR!Read More

It was a pleasure to work with Joseph (JR) on our kitchen remodel and bathroom update. He was so easy to work with, always professional and kind, while providing great insight and ideas. We appreciated that JR would listen to our vision and provide options that maintained aesthetics while keeping an eye towards resale value and (importantly) staying within our budget. We did this project during COVID, when there was a shortage in materials; however, JR was able to connect us with suppliers and worked to get us great pricing too. We definitely plan to work with JR when we take on our next project, and we could not more enthusiastically recommend him. The best proof of his talent is that, after seeing our beautiful kitchen, our friends have started working with JR on their remodels.Read More

My wife and I have nothing but good things to say about JR and the job he performed in the complete renovation of our master bath. I'd like to start with the design - JR listened to us carefully, brought us several options, adjusted his designs based on our feedback, and generally made it easy to move forward. From there, he introduced us to the contractor and the cabinet-maker, both of whom we trusted absolutely (and with good reason, it turns out), given JR's recommendation. JR was present for the entire renovation process - he monitored the progress of the contractors and made sure the materials were not only what he ordered but of the quality he expected. He was especially helpful during the biggest headache: we had ordered high-end custom faucets and fixtures that were delayed (due to Covid). JR took it upon himself to interact with the manufacturer and generally made it so we didn't have to think about it. We appreciated JR's designs and feedback so much that we had him help us with other items in the house - new hardwood floors, some new furniture and accessories after the renovation. Throughout the process, JR was responsive, communicative and responsible. We could not recommend him more highly, and we will be sure to use him again for our next project.Read More

Wow! Wow! Wow! My renovation came out amazing thanks to Joseph! I hired Joseph because he renovated my mother’s house. I was apprehensive at first because I have a very different aesthetic than my mother, but I could tell that JR had a great eye and that he listens to his clients. Working with Joseph was such an easy process. He listened to what I wanted, presented me with several options, and he encouraged me to be open to different ideas. My house came out so much better than I could have imagined. Thanks again Joseph!! Sean G.Read More

Hiring Joseph Rodrigues was the best decision! I hired Joseph to remodel a rental property that needed to be completely renovated. I was extremely nervous to take on a major remodel, but Joseph made the entire process stress free! He managed the entire project from start to finish and I could not have done it without him! He is knowledgeable and has an eye for design. I receive compliments from everyone who sees the home; including the realtor who stated that, "Joseph's design choices increased the value of the property!" Joseph's work speaks for itself and I will never do a project without him! Wendy-G.Read More
