"Design is about making things good (and then better) and right (and fantastic) for the people who use and encounter them."
— Matt Beale

New Home Design
Whether you need a handicapped accessible space or a play area for children, all spaces are created to be functional as well as beautiful. No detail is missed when designing a new home, including ensuring that receptacles are placed to benefit every light fixture in the home.
Design begins with a sketch which shows furnishings and lighting in place to give you a true picture of your finished room. This part of the process helps clients determine the type of furnishings needed for each particular space.
Site Installation Planning & Supervision
Part of our design process includes coordinating shipping and installation, and we will travel to any job site to ensure the finishing touches are completed personally. We’re happy to hang artwork, place accessories, and even fluff the pillows.
While many renovation projects can seem daunting, Designing Women will make the process easy and seamless for our clients. Whether you’re buying an older home or renovating an existing home, we can help you make all the tough decisions. Our team will work with you and your contractor to save time and money.
Second & Third Home Design
Designing Women will ensure your vacation home is ready for you to relax and enjoy the moment you arrive. We can decorate your getaway destination for the holidays or travel there to supervise a design project.
Many of life’s most memorable moments happen when family gathers in the kitchen. Our professional designers will work to make this space uniquely your own with custom cabinets, hardware, appliances, lighting, flooring, and exotic counter tops. Every detail will cater to the style of your life.
Dining & Entertaining Design
Whether dining takes place indoors or out, we can create spaces where people will want to gather for food and fellowship. Our goal is to ensure your dining room does not become wasted space, but rather a room that can easily be used for entertaining small or large crowds of guests.
Are you preparing to throw a party at your home? Let Designing Women help make it the event of the year. We’ll handle every detail from decorations to seating arrangements.
Outdoor Living Design
Enjoy the outdoors from the privacy of your own home. We can supply outdoor draperies and bedding to add comfy elegance to any outdoor living space. By implementing high-tech heating units and outdoor kitchens we help families enjoy green living during many months of the year.

Exterior Movie Night Design
Custom Bedding, Window Treatments and Draperies
With our own drapery and bedding workrooms, Designing Women can provide clients with a vast array of options when choosing fabrics. We also have direct sources to a multitude of blinds, shutters, and drapery hardware, along with a professional installer who will ensure the job gets completed efficiently.
Color & Finish Consultations
One of Designing Women’s most notable traits is our attention to color and texture. Sometimes changing paint or fabric colors can refresh an entire room. We work with a personal paint and wall covering crew that goes above and beyond to meet your interior and exterior design needs.
Custom Designed Furniture
Designing Women is located in the heart of furniture country, enabling us to provide the most beautiful lines for the best price. Having relationships with local manufacturers allows us to request customized items that fit the needs of our clients.

Lighting creates the personality of your space – inside or out. Creating shadows and eliminating dark corners, while making sure task lighting is available wherever it’s needed is our job.
Artwork & Accessory Selection
Lamps, artwork, crystal chandeliers, elegant rugs, or anything in between – we have access to it all. No room is complete without the finishing touches of house jewelry. We can incorporate new art and accessories with your own favorite decorative items.
