Testimonials

Good morning,Jan.  I sincerely hope that you know how much Gary and I are loving our new space.   We are relishing all the accolades as we share the kitchen with family and friends,  “so much bigger;”  “so much light;”  “who knew just a small bump out could make such a difference;”  “still has a warm, welcoming feel;”   “beautiful blend of colors and materials–love the honed island stone.”   Just a few of the comments.

And working with you has been a genuine pleasure.   Its been quite an adventure from the beginning (which I’m choosing to just forget)–from the snow to the rain to the hot and humidity.   We  appreciate Kirk’s and your tenacity to get everything done.  Please drop in if you find yourself wandering back to Eldersburg or anywhere else near hear.  The coffee pot is always ready at the beverage center and there’s always cool refreshments in the refrigerator drawers!

Thank you for all of your personal design guidance and exceptional project management and communications.  It has been a true pleasure to work with you.

My husband and I contracted with Jan Goldman of Kitchen Elements to remodel our 1970′s era master bath and dressing room. Her clever design (one of three she prepared for us) greatly increased the room’s usable space, improved the closet arrangements for both of us, and added lots of convenient storage. Jan had many helpful suggestions as we selected the tile, plumbing fixtures, counter tops and cabinetry, pointing out details that we would not have thought about.

Ultimately, all the pieces came together beautifully. Her main work crew was highly skilled, professional and pleasant, as were all the subcontractors she sent in. They arrived on time, worked hard, and always left the work area clean. All the work was done spotlessly. Jan stopped by often while the work was going on and was always prompt in responding to voice messages or email if we had questions.

The project had a compressed schedule due to our travel schedule, but they were able to complete the job on time. Jan’s cost estimate was very reliable, too. We are very happy with the new space and highly recommend Kitchen Elements.

Jan did a complete kitchen remodel for us. She was great at listening to what we wanted and gave us a several creative design options. The job was especially challenging as the room had been through previous renovations and the walls and ceiling were not exactly plumb. Jan was diligent in taking exact measurements and overseeing the cabinet installation. We are extremely pleased with the end result.

From the moment that Jan walked into our lives, we knew that it was meant to be. Jan is a treasure! She is professional and patient. Her background in architecture and her sense of space and how it works is amazing. All of this and more proved invaluable in turning our wishes into reality!! Now we have a friend for life and know who to turn to for our next project.

Jan, I was looking at your website and appreciating the pictures of our kitchen. I love our stove, which is getting me to cook. Can you believe it? I now feel the difference in using better appliances and I’m glad we chose an upgrade for that.

Your website is so well done and describes your process really well. What you explain on your site actually happens and, when I refer you, I’ll refer people to it.

I was recently leafing through a decorating magazine and read a story indicating that delays and nightmares are part of the remodeling process and to expect them. Thankfully, that didn’t happen at all with our project.

Well done and thank you again.

It has been my pleasure to work with Jan Goldman on several kitchen projects in the past seven years. Jan brings to the table the most important ability to listen to the client as well as, in my case, the designer’s needs. Coupled with her keen design ability, vision and follow through, Jan never disappoints!

Jan Goldman brings a unique perspective to the area of kitchen and bath design. She is able to view a space and utilize its maximum potential. She incorporates her customers’ wishes into her creative designs, being mindful of their budget constraints. The finished product artistically elevates the space while still reflecting the customers’ personality.

On a personal note, I found Jan to be responsive to my constant questions, to be diligent in following up on the smallest details, to adhere to our wishes and to respect the sanctity of our home. Her support and dedication were invaluable in helping us create our dream kitchen.
