Architect/Homeowner, Highland Park, IL

”I am an architect and designed my own kitchen renovation for my 1920 house. I met Kerry when I was shopping for custom cabinets, and she ended up doing all of the detailed cabinet drawings for my concept design to give to the cabinet builder, making excellent suggestions for specific details, required clearances, etc. Without her in-depth knowledge and experience, the cabinets would have been a disaster! She knows all the "tricks of the trade". Kerry is extremely responsive to questions, both during the design process as well as during the installation. She even met my installation contractor at my house the day the cabinets were delivered to go over the nuances of the cabinet and trim installation. I would highly recommend Kerry for any renovation project."

"Working with Kerry Briggs of Briggs Design was a real joy. She is a true professional who never tried to tell me what I wanted but gently guided me toward my end result. Her knowledge of the design of my kitchen was incredible. The companies that she chooses were all top of the line and the workmanship was impeccable. I never would have been able to achieve the end result of my kitchen makeover if it wasn't for Kerry. I would definitely choose her again for my next project."

Lakeside Retreat, Wauconda, IL

“After discussions with numerous designers, we chose Briggs Design to design our kitchen and bathrooms in our new home. The reasons for choosing Briggs Design were numerous … for the kitchen, it was all about Kerry’s approach - how do we work in the kitchen? How do we entertain? Where do we make our morning coffee? How do we want to move through the kitchen? In other words, it was all about us and our needs and wants and not some preconceived generic design. …If you are looking for a dedicated designer, we highly recommend Kerry. We are very pleased with the final design, cabinets, installation and Kerry.”

"Briggs Design Associates is an excellent choice for your kitchen and remodeling needs. I have worked with Kerry Briggs for 12 years as a general contractor and installer. She is very thorough and extremely detailed. Kerry follows the project from start to finish - not just when the cabinets arrive. When a problem does arise (hidden plumbing pipes or electrical lines) her construction knowledge and cabinet design can save the client costly relocation fees. Kerry is always available to answer questions and her choice of Amish built cabinetry comes with many of her details utilizing every available inch of space.  And, the finish on the cabinets is among the best in the industry. I wish all my projects went as smoothly as with Briggs Design's projects!"
