Tobias Design LLC, one of the area’s leading custom kitchen designers, located at 48 West Broad Street, Hopewell, has maintained its award-winning ways in 2019. Most recently they secured a coveted Chrysalis Award for a joint remodeling project. Since 1994 the Chrysalis Awards have honored the finest remodeling projects in the nation. The recent awards recognized 77 companies, from across the United States, that set new standards of excellence and professionalism for residential and commercial remodeling. The entries were judged on overall design, the creative use of space and materials, and the degree to which the project enhanced the original structure.
“Our team is honored to receive this prestigious national recognition with our respected business neighbor, Baxter Construction, with whom we teamed for this kitchen and family room renovation,” states Lisa Tobias, owner and designer of Tobias Design, LLC. The Chrysalis is considered the Oscars for residential and commercial builders throughout the country.
The challenging project involved a kitchen and family room renovation to update and improve the flow of the homeowner’s lower level. The project entailed removing a partition wall separating the living room and entry area from the kitchen space to create an open feeling all on a tight deadline to meet the needs of the family.
In addition to this accolade, Tobias Design has won “Best of Customer Service” on Houzz, the leading platform for home renovation and design, for the sixth consecutive year. Tobias Design was chosen by the more than 40 million monthly individual users that comprise the Houzz community from among more than 2.1 million active home building, remodeling, and design industry professionals. The Customer Service honor is based on several factors, including overall rating on Houzz and client reviews submitted in 2018.
Lisa Tobias founded her company in 2005 after pursuing a career as an actuarial consultant in New York. “I started my business as a natural avenue to pursue given my work history and my passions. Remodeling a home can be, to put it mildly, a daunting process if undertaken without skilled professionals. Renovation and complete redesigns can be stressful, but we provide a project-management approach so that the process is efficient, and the result is a beautiful fit for your style.”
Tobias urges homeowners to look at the whole house when planning a redesign. “You must take into account all the uses of all the rooms, how you live in them and how these uses can be integrated.”
Tobias says, “We pride ourselves on working with clients to design a unique home space that reflects their personalities and needs. I am like the actor who absorbs herself into the character. I put myself into the mindset of each client.” Lisa and her associates use this technique to design homescapes that capture the true style of the homeowner. The outcome is a unique transformation of living space. No two projects are ever alike.
