"We had Marc prepare a complete redesign of our kitchen cabinets, counter tops, appliances, lighting plus removing one wall. He sat down with us, listened to our desires, showed us possibilities in his showroom and then presented us with a computerized depiction of the redesigned kitchen. It was fantastic, we loved it. He then brought us to an appliance showroom where we chose our appliances consistent with the design. Next he brought us to a tile showroom where we chose the tile for the new kitchen. Marc handled the ordering of the cabinets and counter tops and their installation--very efficiently done. Marc was present checking the work as it was being done. He has a very talented and professional crew.
Marc also suggested a contractor for the renovation who was outstanding. He worked closely with the contractor; coordinated dates etc. We would recommend Marc to anyone who wants a professionally designed and efficiently renovated kitchen." - October 2019
"I decided to do a complete kitchen and laundry room remodel, as well as some living room dining room work. Having never done this before, I was quite nervous about the whole thing. Marc was excellent at guiding me through the entire process. I now have a wonderful kitchen and more, since my galley kitchen merges with the living and dining room areas. The cabinets are beautiful and with some matching shelves in the living/dining rooms, the flow and continuity makes me very happy. Although, I will be glad when ALL my friends have seen the new kitchen, because once they get past the sink... everyone wants to open and look in every single cabinet, open every drawer, pull out every drawer inside the cabinets...even in the laundry room.. Thank you Marc, you and your people do excellent work. I highly recommend Marc Coan Designs. " - January 2019
"We worked with David Morris at Marc Coan for our kitchen remodel and are thrilled with how everything turned out in the new kitchen. David was very thoughtful in making suggestions about our options and worked well with our contractor getting the cabinets and counter tops ordered and installed. When needed, Marc and Kathy (the other designers) weighed in to give us their thoughts on our selections, and any concerns that we raised were handled quickly and thoughtfully. The quality of the cabinets and the care taken in installation of the cabinets and counter tops met and exceeded our expectations. The initial estimate made for the cost of the project was accurate and there were no "surprises" in the final cost. We highly recommend that you consider using the folks at Marc Coan Designs for your remodel project." - November 2017
"Working with Marc, and the entire crew, at Marc Coan Designs was an exciting, expansive experience. The results were better than I imagined, and the kitchen is not only spectacular, it is a delight to cook in! Being a central and open element in the house, the kitchen design needed to be sensitive to the original house construction and simultaneously bring a modern flavor to the house. It succeeded on all counts. They are consummate professionals, open-minded and fun to work with!"
"In 2013 Marc Coan Designs assisted us in completely remodeling our kitchen. The design experience and creativity which Marc brought to the project allowed us to incorporate many desired features in a small kitchen without moving any walls. He and his staff were all very generous with their time when it came to assisting us in selecting and coordinating cabinets, tiles, countertops & appliances, or just bouncing around ideas. The installation crews for both the cabinets and granite countertops we purchased from Marc Coan Designs were courteous and professional. We are very pleased with their work, as well as with the beauty and quality of the cabinets and countertops. In all aspects of the project, Marc and his staff went "the extra mile" to assure our satisfaction."
"We are very happy with Marc's re-design of a pier in our living room, his design of an outside wet bar and a complete reorganization and redo of two bathrooms. Marc has great ideas, is very knowledgeable about the marketplace and listens well to what the customer's objectives are. In each case the project turned out even better than our expectation."
"I loved working with Kathy. The bonus has been a wonderful friendship that has developed over the course of three projects she has done for me. Kathy thinks outside the box and I love how her mind works. She didn’t just get the job, she owned the job."
"I was very impressed with Kathy’s skill as a designer. Her knowledge went beyond cabinetry and I appreciated her validating and expanding upon my ideas for lighting and helping with other decisions. Many friends who have seen my kitchen are amazed at the transformation and I delight in showing the (before) pictures for comparison.”
"Marc Coan Designs and his sub-contractors tore out the whole kitchen and replaced it with new cupboards, cabinets, countertops, lighting, wallpaper, backsplash tile. Marc, who is very experienced in design, offered suggestions for accent trim and other materials that coordinated well together. Marc is very knowledgeable and easy to work with. I know many of his subs have worked with him for years and they respect his judgment; he respects their expertise as well. He did not push us to use materials that we didn't like. Keeping to a budget wasn't involved in our project, but I'm sure he would have respected any budget we might have proposed if that had been necessary."
"Kathy has great vision. She can look at a space and see the design possibilities in her mind’s eye. More importantly, she is able to communicate her vision. In this business communication is key and I get that with Kathy. When we come together with our ideas, the synergy produces great kitchens and baths.”
"Kathy was a pleasure to work with. During our remodel we dealt with a lot of people, and Kathy was, by far, the most professional. She always kept her appointments with us, and was always on time. She was the exception in that regard. From start to finish she stayed on top of the project and everything was done as she promised, when she promised."
"This is the second interior job we have had the great pleasure to work on with Marc Coan Designs. Professional and knowledgeable, they have meet and always exceeded our high standards. From concept, design and implementation we can give them only the highest of praises."
"We worked with Kathy (sometimes with Marc)--she came up with a great design for our very unique space! Our cabinets came in on time and were just what we ordered. We went with Refiner's Construction (one of the suggested contractors from Kathy) for the plumbing/electrical/construction work that had to be done and were very pleased with the outcome. Ultimately we had two bills: one for the cabinets, and one for the construction (total project cost is what you see). On-time, budget-flexible and always ready to help, we would definitely hire Marc Coan Design again."
"Kathy Jackson of Marc Coan Designs is the Consummate Professional: meticulous to specs and design, on track, polite, prompt, responsive, excellent communication, creative but practical and personable. Marc Coan Designs is generous with supplying materials and samples, referrals and resources. Ms. Jackson was a great partner, supporting my creative whims while gently pulling me back to reality and tolerating my design involvement. Lay-out was crucial and installation meticulous. I can only give Kathy Jackson and Marc Coan Designs my highest recommendation regarding their personal character and professional work."
"Kathy Jackson’s design work and professionalism surpassed my expectations. She is a wonderful designer and presented ideas for my kitchen remodel that I would never have thought of."
