Client Testimonials

"Hakansson Design came to us through enthusiastic recommendation by several of their clientele. Kurt Hakansson planned reconstruction of a 1980's galley kitchen from the top down, working with us at every step to succeed in producing a higher ceiling, reconfigured placement of sink and appliances and overall a place of functional ease and subtle elegance that harmonizes gracefully with its 19th century surroundings. After the initial stage, we had to be in Asia and worked with Kurt by phone and email, all with seamless ease. We then returned to be captivated by the creation, and with even greater enthusiasm join Hakansson's list of recommenders."

"Excellent experience with this firm and excellent value. I found them on Houzz.com and this is the second time I have used them. They are incredibly responsive and have been able to work within my tight time tables. While they can't give you a firm quote from the start of the project and most of it is hourly they are realistic with the expectations they set from the begging. I plan to continue using them on all my future projects and possibly bring them in on past projects I completed before I found them because I should have used them there as well."

"Having Hakansson Design in charge of the project was perfect. We could not have done this without them. Their taste was impeccable, they kept the project on schedule, the contractors and sub-contractors were talented and
dedicated, and most important, the renovation completely transformed how we live in our home."
