Meet Our Designer – Amanda Kratochvil

Let’s get to know your designer, Amanda, a little bit better.

“I’m the first to admit I fell into my profession. I didn’t know what I wanted to do with my life, but I did know I wanted to be creative, help people and never get tired of my job.

I chose my major on a whim and instantly fell in love. A lot of people tell me that they would love to make things pretty like I do, and while that is a perk of the job it’s not my central motivation. Each day is different, my clients are all unique and I love getting to live my passion every day.

My favorite detail of my job is the space planning. I love taking a space that doesn’t function for the homeowner and making it work for them. Everyone lives just a little bit differently; I love finding out the little details of my client’s life so that I can make their lives easier and tailor their space to their lifestyle.

Something like relocating the entirety of a kitchen to another part of their house so that they have a better flow with their entertaining space, or something simple like changing the swing of a door to help make the space feel more open and less crowded. Seeing the look on my client’s face when they realize that something is possible with their existing space that they’ve hated for so long makes my job worth it.

It’s like a giant puzzle; how do I fit these client specific pieces into a space without compromising on design, building and safety codes or my clients wants/needs? I love being able to play with the pieces to make what, is ultimately, a masterpiece for them.

My one goal for design is to create a functional, beautiful space tailored to my client’s needs.”
