"I have known Katrina for over a decade. I was always a fan of her work, so when it came time to tackle my own home she was the obvious choice. My 1957 ranch was in desperate need of some updating. 3 bath remodels and a lower level re-do later it finally belongs in the 21st century. Thanks to Katrina it should not have to be updated for another 50 years."
"Katrina Porter was recommended to us by a friend who she had just helped remodel their bathroom. Our need was to update a 40 year old master bathroom and closet. The goal was to create a pleasing space that functioned well, and to design with handicap capabilities as needed in the future. After we decided on a plan, she arranged for three different contractors to bid on the job and was here to meet each one with their subs. During the construction she was always available for questions or concerns. There were a couple of minor problems, but she quickly had a solution that pleased the builder and homeowner. Katrina worked well with the contractor and subs and she has a unique talent that allows her to listen to the customer's needs (space and money) and accomplish both in a very pleasing and professional manner. We are extremely pleased with our new space."
"Katrina has done several large and small projects for me over the past 10 years. She is excellent at turning ideas into reality. She stays within budget and is very innovative with her designs."
"We were blessed to buy a home that would provide a bigger space for our family of 5 but it needed some TLC and a master suite. We had done some remodeling in our previous home and did all the planning and managing of the projects ourselves. This was going to be a bigger project, though, so when our contractor told us about a construction designer, I was interested! Her name was Katrina Porter and she was a Godsend! She made it fun! She was decisive and knowledgeable. Every part of the house needed some sort of updating and we added on a master suite. Also, we swapped the kitchen and dining room. She helped decide paint colors, hardwood stain color, cabinets, countertops, appliances, mirrors, tile, doorknobs, sinks, faucets, lighting, doors... the list goes on and on! There are so many details and I would have never been able to do it without her!"
"VW Gallerie consultants have helped Katrina and her clients with their projects. We have heard positive feedback about the quality of work, excellent communication to understand the clients needs and wants, as well as the outstanding results of the design Katrina created for their home."
"We underwent a significant re-model to our house that began in February 2015. Katrina has helped us with every aspect of our house since our decision was made to build. She recommended changes to the original design which made our house more functional and improved flow. During the build, Katrina provided an extra set of eyes on site and ensured that the build was going according to plan and recommended changes during the framing phase that improved the design and could easily be made in the build phase instead of near completion. She made the selection of finishes, fixtures, and other features much easier by understanding our style/taste and providing a short list of options which prevented us from being overwhelmed. She was respectful of our budget and balanced that with very tasteful decisions. We are extremely pleased with Katrina's work on our house and the talent/vision that she brings to the table. My husband and I both feel having her on board throughout the build was one of the best decisions that we made. We highly recommend Katrina to others that are anticipating a re-model of new build!"
"We hired Katrina to help with the construction of our new home from start to finish. It is unbelievable how many decisions there are to make in building a custom home. Katrina helped us step-by-step through the entire process; we would not have been able to do it without her! She listened to our ideas, came up with ideas we could have never dreamed of on our own, and helped us stay within our budget. Not only is she extremely talented at what she does, she is also a wonderful person to work with. I miss our daily chats each day!"
"We love working with Katrina Porter. Brandino Brass is so lucky to have Katrina as a client. She helps guide her clients through the overwhelming selection of door and cabinet hardware with great ease."
