Your expertise made the entire project flow smoothly
How can I thank you for the fabulous job you did in designing my amazing kitchen. From the original design to all the minute details, to the finishing touches, I am in awe! Sometimes I sit quietly in the early morning hours in my new kitchen and I can’t believe how lucky I am to have all of this. It has become a very special place for our family and friends to gather. Thank you so much for all your help. Your expertise made the entire project flow smoothly. There were so many people involved in the project who all worked well together from beginning to end. I have waited a long time for this new space, but as the saying goes, “good things come to those who wait.” And the wait was well worth it! – Kathi L. York ME

We absolutely love our kitchen
Just wanted to send you note letting you know how much we love our kitchen that you designed back in 2008. It was a kitchen remodel project. You asked us many many questions, spent a lot of time with us, and really listened to our answers. You were so patient! We absolutely love our kitchen... even after 8 years! The kitchen is the center of our house... we like cooking and sharing a meal together as a family. All of our kitchen "stuff" fits well and it's all in places that make sense to us. The kitchen is very much us... the way it looks and the way we use it. You did a great job... thank you! You also designed the kitchen in our in-law suite. It works very well for my parents. Everything is so accessible. Thanks again! -Cindy M.
His vast knowledge and extensive experience put us at ease
In planning to remodel our badly outdated kitchen and adjoining dining/mud room, my husband and I planned on getting bids from 3 designers based on referrals from friends before deciding who to hire. David was among the group of them, and the first one we contacted. Right away, he told us the first thing he'd like to do is see the space. So we made an appointment to show it to him, and honestly we were a little embarrassed at how shabby and outdated it was. But no matter! He arrived on time, and within the first ten minutes, the ideas he had presented for redesigning the space had light bulbs going off all over the place in our minds. Such great ideas! "How about if we get rid of these old casement windows and put in a big picture window there?". "What if we put custom cabinets all along that bare wall to give you a lot of needed storage?" Wow! We hadn't thought of that, and that was just the beginning. Beyond that, his warm personality and professional demeanor put us totally at ease. That our job was nowhere near the largest, or most expensive one his company had worked on before did not matter at all. By the end of the visit, we knew we weren't even going to call anyone else. We were sold, and he hadn't even presented an actual design yet! He then came up with a design that was within budget, well thought out, and absolutely gorgeous. Loved it! We then met with him at his beautiful showroom, where he walked us through the process of picking out cabinetry, flooring, and stone for our counters and island. There is such a great selection that although it wasn't easy to choose, we managed to get everything selected in one visit. His vast knowledge and extensive experience put us at ease in trusting his judgement whenever we were on the fence about something. He is very good at "reading" people - getting a feel for their likes and taste based on their personality, etc. It shows in his design. We could not be happier. On top of all that, the contractor he chose to work with us was by far the best we have ever hired. Top-notch professionalism, skill, courtesy, and just honestly some of the nicest people you could ever hope to meet. It's never easy to have people in your house every day for several weeks, but we really could not have asked for a better team. In fact, I'm going to miss them! We are absolutely thrilled and grateful, and loving our beautiful new space. - Sunny
Excellence from beginning to end
Excellence from beginning to end. We had a clear vision of what we wanted, and David and his team made it happen. The completion and installation was very professional and the attention to detail was top notch. We had some requirements that were a challenge and David found solutions that made our made to measure space look perfect. - Niall
Our new living space is such a pleasure to share with our family
My Husband and I are so glad we worked with David. Our project included reconfiguring our breezeway, kitchen and dining room, expanding and opening the rooms to create a great room and a much more functional kitchen.
On our first meeting David sat with us for the good part of a morning listening carefully to what we wanted to incorporate in our new space, and asking questions to help us get the most from our redesign. He had wonderful ideas for storage, flow and a piece that could be unique to us, all while staying within our smaller budget.
Within a week, David had a layout for us. Shortly after he shared three dimensional drawings that really helped us to see our new positioning of the appliances and all the storage we would gain. Later we had some last minute changes to the great room and David went above and beyond to create a drawing over night for our builder so he could continue framing accurately. He was so helpful and patient working through the entire time line with our builder.
David's knowledge of, and rapport with, different vendors made shopping for materials so easy and affordable. He even had a contact in a sheet metal business that helped us cut down the gooseneck hood to fit the design for our kitchen. Any time we had a question or any of the folks who worked on
our project, David was available to work out the details. We loved the enthusiasm he brought to the whole process.
My husband and I really appreciate how wonderful it is to cook in our new kitchen. Our new living space is such a pleasure to share with our family and guests. - Paula
Not just kitchens and baths!
We hired David a few years ago to design our master bathroom. He did a great job so we went back to him for our next, much larger project. David designed and oversaw a complete remodeling of our entry hall, powder room, dining room and kitchen. I couldn't imagine working with anyone else on a project of that scale! Besides being incredibly talented with space utilization, he has amazing vision, unending patience and extensive contacts in the industry.
David's expertise and his always professional demeanor delivered a knock-out renovation that we love! And, we stayed on budget! I highly recommend David Annand as a design expert for any renovation! Not just kitchens and baths! - Tom
Professional and pleasant from start to finish
David is a real joy to work with. He is professional and pleasant from start to finish. No detail is too small or unimportant for him to address. I was continually amazed at how quickly he responded to each inquiry. He is respectful of budget and as the company name implies will always find a "solution".
I am absolutely thrilled with his kitchen, bar and bath designs and work. He turned a mundane kitchen plan into an absolute dream kitchen. He converted a small, useless closet into a magnificent
bar area and created an original bath vanity and mirror that everyone admires and compliments.
He is a true gem. - LuAnne
Pleasure to work with
From Day 1, David was a consummate professional. He is EXTREMELY reliable and listened to EVERY IDEA we had. He tried to incorporate ALL of our ideas all trying to stay within our budget. Needless to say, we went over budget, but that was our fault :) He used his expertise to give us some brilliant ideas and they turned out great.
Even the contractors that he works with were a pleasure! We actually missed them when they were gone :) We were dreading this project for a while, but David actually made it wonderful. He was a pleasure to work with!!! HIGHLY RECOMMEND HIM!!!
