I wanted to reach out to commend Dan on the work he did over the past months. From the day he stepped onsite, he was an absolute pro. Over the course of the project, I watched him work and manage the crew, and he did it so professionally and courteously. I was really impressed with how meticulous he was in every little item- it was as important to him to make it right as it was to us. He clearly takes pride in the work he does, and it shows through in the level of detail.
I think the thing that impressed me the most is that he leads with Yes. There wasn’t a request I had or a question I asked that he didn’t come back with a “we can do that” or a “not a problem”. That attitude is so appreciated, and aside from the quality of work that Creative clearly does, his positive approach makes all the different between a great client experience and just a good one.
More broadly, everyone who worked here in the house was just great. They were friendly and helpful, and clearly enjoyed the work they were doing. As painful as the overall process was, your team worked hard to make it as comfortable as possible for our family.
Bottom line-Dan is a rock star. Please be sure he knows how much we appreciate his efforts!
Rebecca and I just wanted to say a big thank you to you and all of the Creative Design team members who were a part of our kitchen renovation project. We were very pleased with the final results. Everything looks great, a major improvement from both a functional and aesthetic standpoint over what we had previously.
We look forward to many years of enjoying the kitchen. And perhaps we will have the opportunity to utilize your services again if the need arises. We certainly wouldn’t hesitate to call on you and will definitely tell anyone who inquires about the renovation about our positive experience.
You will be very happy if you use Creative Design for your next remodel!
There are four areas I would rank Creative Design as Excellent.
Communication, Professionalism, Attention to Detail, Follow up.
My wife and I were very thankful that we chose Creative Design to do the renovation. James, our remodeling consultant, was outstanding! He was available by phone, text or email and answered all of our questions throughout the whole renovation. Creative’s team was polite, professional, considerate and clean. Hairo was the Project Manager. Many times I observed him and his crew fussing over the smallest details late in the day when I know many other contractors would have already packed up their tools. He often wanted to stay later to discuss tiny details with my wife and I. Hairo and his team are the best!
After the renovation was complete, there were minor issues with the cabinet doors and drawers. Creative Design had no reservations about calling the manufacturer to see what can be done. They fixed all issues even though the issues were from the manufacturer. Creative’s follow up is excellent. My wife and I were very impressed how much time they spend AFTER the remodel was complete making sure everything is perfect. Anything that was slightly off was fixed to make it perfect.
Another huge positive about Creative Design is they will tell you if something will not look good, or you may get tired of the look, and provide a better option. We welcomed James challenging us on design choices. His push-back was evidence that his team remained engaged throughout the entire renovation. Being required to make so many decisions gave us selection fatigue. By the end of the renovation, my wife and I were checked out on making tiny decisions. The Creative Team, meeting every Friday to discuss ongoing projects, weighed in on every detail and we would hear about the consensus Monday morning. This kept our choices consistent and tasteful.
Overall, we are very happy with our renovation and highly recommend Creative Design! If you use Creative Design for your renovation you will be very happy with the result!

I contacted the Creative Design Team to provide their services in my family home in New Jersey. Glen and his team at Creative Design were instrumental in assisting us to transform our recently purchased “nice house” into our “Dream Home.”
The Creative Design Team listened to our requirements and worked with us to provide solutions which improved my family’s safety and comfort and were financially beneficial to us. The members of the team were extremely professional and respectful of our time and home and they literally took care of everything associated with the project including unforeseen issues.
The work done by the Creative Design Team was invaluable in terms of their service and professionalism. I highly recommend Creative Design!
Thanks for all that you do!
Creative Design and Construction did an amazing job! As a Realtor who relocated to NJ, I knew how difficult it would be to find a builder with a good reputation that actually delivered what was promised. After doing some research we met with Creative and from the start they gave us a great first impression. We asked to visit a current work site to see for ourselves how they work and their quality in terms of product. It was evident that they were an established company with strong ratings and reviews for a reason.
Creative Design provides a very high quality product, on-time and on budget! They were able to think three steps ahead and offer us several options to conserve the budget we needed, while not compromising the finished product. We enjoyed working with Creative and often felt like part of the team. We lived in the home during part of the renovation and the team was very considerate of our schedule and still finished on time! They truly listened to our needs and wishes and respected our opinions during our complete house renovations. It’s like have a relative in the business! They even helped us repair work originally done by a handy man that was falling apart.
Can’t wait for our next project! We would highly recommend Creative Design if you are looking for an incredibly detailed oriented firm!
When we first purchased our house years ago, I had decided to be my own general contractor to perform renovations and improvements along the way. After a few pitfalls, I decided to never do that again especially undertaking an addition. I had heard of Creative Design and passed their showroom many times before. I decided to give them a call and discuss the possibilities. I was looking for someone to handle every part of the renovation and Creative Design does just that. From design to completion, my overall experience has been great. If there was ever a concern, Creative Design actually calls back and shows up for their scheduled appointments. There was a carpenter on the job almost every single weekday with no issues. I based my decision to hire them on overall experience rather than price. In the past, I have chosen contractors because they were less expensive, but you definitely get what you pay for. The lowest bid isn’t always the best choice. I would definitely recommend Creative Design if you are looking for a total package.
Thanks again for a job well done!
Keith & Elizabeth B.
Our kitchen, after nearly 20 years of use and abuse, needed a renovation. We contacted several local companies and obtained their design proposals. From the very beginning, Glen and his team of designers were on point with their designs. We were given the opportunity to view three kitchens done by Creative Design. All three kitchens were functional, beautiful and tasteful – exactly what we were looking for. While we had our own ideas about what we wanted, Glen questioned us and even pressed a bit when he felt we might ultimately regret some choices we were considering. We’re pleased he pushed back because he ultimately persuaded us to make changes that brought the entire design to a higher level.
The attitude and culture at Creative Design is professional and respectful. From the top down, the employees were always kind, patient and willing to do what it takes to ensure our satisfaction. The “field guys” Jorge, Rob and Gary all seem to get along well and treat each other like family. They were a pleasure to have around. We also noticed how demanding they were of the subcontractors. They would never accept anything less than what our expectations were, and were even more critical because of their expertise.
Jorge, Rob and Gary are all extremely skilled in carpentry. Jorge, our project manager, is extremely knowledgeable about sound systems, doors, paint, lighting, electrical, plumbing, HVAC – the list is endless. The anticipation and coordination of the different elements that came into play was nothing short of outstanding. Glen was always available, coming to us on weekends and evenings to help with decisions and keep the project moving.
The Creative Design team works safely and cleanly. They placed temporary walls and zipper doors in entryways to ensure there was no dust or damage to areas outside the renovation. The team swept, vacuumed and moved their tools and machinery out of our way when they weren’t actively working. We appreciated that we didn’t have any additional worries with regard to safety when it came to this project.
We wholeheartedly recommend Creative Design for any renovation and intend to use them for our next project.
Ed & Karen R.
My wife Elaine and I want to be sure to compliment Creative Design on the beautiful renovation of our master bathroom. The Team could not have been more professional, cooperative, or understanding of our needs and wants and it definitely shows in the final product. Elaine and I have restored a 1905 English Country house over the last thirty-four years as a labor of love. We can be demanding in pursuit of the idea we have for its improvement, and at every turn we found helpful answers instead of ‘push-back.’ That is why we are so pleased with the outcome and can recommend our friends to Creative Design.
Thank you again,
Bernie & Elaine D.
To Glen and the Creative Design Construction Family:
I would like to start off by sharing what this house means to us. It’s a symbol of love, family, respect, hard work, dedication, sacrifice, morale, family values, and commitment. My parents purchased this house 25 + years ago after only being in this country for 3 years with limited English. They worked hard and sacrificed everything they had, even time spent with me to have a place they can call “home” and not have to deal with the abuse, disrespect and manipulation they’ve endured from ruthless landlords. In that house, throughout the years my parents taught me what it means to preserve what you have, work hard, play harder. Now that I have my own family, Raul and I are able to instill that in our children, share our family values, and continue the memories in the home that we hope can be passed on through generations with the amazing transformation creative design construction has provided us.
It was a hard and longer than expected process for us. We were displaced from our home, separated between states, and in 2 homes for sometime, and now reunited in our brand new beautiful home! It’s amazing how an old home, that was so dark, dated, and divided is now so open, airy, warm and inviting! Thank you Glen for your vision, for believing that the amount work needed was possible, for trusting us, and making sure we were HAPPY and mostly importantly LOVE our home!
Despite the frustrations, ups and downs, and wondering if we made the right decision in terms of renovating the house, the final product confirmed we made the right decision to fix the house and select creative design as the company to make it happen. Although an overwhelming process, it was amazing experience to watch the house undergo multiple phases leading to the final perfect home for us. We learned so much, and truly appreciate the time spent to teach and share your knowledge with us along the way.
Thank you to the creative design construction family, each individual’s participation big or small essentially contributed to the brand new gorgeous home we have. Special thanks to Sarah, for being so receptive to us from the beginning. Your very polite and respectful, we appreciate you listening to our concerns, guiding us through the process, offering great advice with selections, preparing the models, and your overall patience to deal with us especially while we were in Florida.
We truly appreciate you reminding us how important it is to get something we will be happy with and love! Good luck on your wedding! Congratulations!
Hairo rocks! Extremely patient, kind, respectful, very sincere, loyal, and has a good heart! He is a huge reflection of the company. Very knowledgeable and genuine. He’s very personable, funny, never seems stressed. Thank you for being our “punching bag”. Lol. During the times our frustrations have peeked Hairo was able to calm us down, put us at ease, and find a resolution. We greatly appreciate you taking the time to educate us, inform us, advise us, and offering your personal opinion with our best interest at heart. Thank you so much for treating us like family! Hairo, Willy says he is waiting for you. lol
Joanne, I with met once, Thank god she chimed in at the right time! Thank you for your energy, excitement and willingness to work with Sara on the kitchen back splash in helping us find something we will love for a long time!
Grandpa Glen! Lol … There is so much to say about you but we”ll keep it short!
You’ve said were like family so Thank you for providing that comfort. After meeting with you for the first time Raul had a good feeling about selecting your company. I wasn’t so sure, I just wanted the job done by someone reliable. Despite some of our differences, if we had another opportunity to do something like this again we would without a doubt choose creative design construction as the company of choice.
Glen you have been very respectful throughout this entire process, we appreciate you listening to our concerns, and making adjustments as needed. We truly appreciate your fairness, flexibility, and willingness to work with us financially as well.
Tatiana J & Raul G.
In the almost 30 years living in our current home, we have not often encountered professional workers of high quality. Those employed by Creative Design to reconstruct our kitchen are the finest example of what should be the industry standard. Initially, the design team of Peter Sotiropoulos and James Borenius worked tirelessly to accommodate our needs and desires in the planning stage. Once that was accomplished, the project moved smoothly from demolition to recreation with no delays and with a minimum of disruption. Logically, step by step our kitchen took shape, with very minor adjustments as necessary.
Creative Design wants its clients to be fully satisfied and makes every effort to accomplish that goal. We are extremely pleased with the results and would happily recommend Creative Design to anyone contemplating renovations or construction.
Helen & David K
Dear Creative Design,
Personal service and strong attention to detail are some of the things you can expect from Creative Design Construction. We contracted Creative Design to do the custom cabinetry in our kitchen and vanities in our master and family bathrooms. We were building our dream home and Pete Sotiropoulos of Creative Design listened and understood how to help us bring those dreams to life. Pete strived to provide us with a positive experience during planning and design phases of the project as well as helping us with any questions or follow up after the project was done. The project was completed within the promised timeframe, within our budget with quality cabinetry that had everything we desired. The few minor punch list items were addressed promptly. We value you and your team’s expertise, attention to detail, follow-up, courtesy and honesty in working with us throughout our project.
Jayson & Liana M.
Dear Creative Design,
After years of waiting and dreading to go through a complete kitchen renovation we chose to go with Creative Design. Thank goodness we did! From start to finish we had a wonderful experience and successful, beautiful result. With a very hard working profession team that is assigned to your project we had complete confidence in their expertise. They are there for you every step-of-the-way and communication with the team is exceptional and so very important. Everyone that worked on our project, in whatever, capacity, had an excellent work ethic and took pride in everything they did. At Creative Design there is a standard of excellence in workmanship and customer service that was so impressive, so refreshing, and very welcoming. I would highly recommend this company for your next project. You will be so happy you did!!
A big “thank you” for a job so well done and greatly appreciated!
You are the best!
Jeanne & Joe Z.
Dear Creative Design,
My wife and I moved into our home ten years ago. For nine of those years we talked about how we would renovate our outdated kitchen. What would our dream kitchen look like? What would our must haves be? Every so often we would pick a contractor’s brain, or surf the web for ideas about designs and cost. And in between, life happened. We tackled other lovely, but smaller house projects. Our son was born. Vacations were taken. One year ago we learned we were expecting our second child, a girl. We were so happy. We also became extremely motivated to finally tackle to biggest renovation we could think of. Our kitchen. Over the years and our many, many discussion, what we learned was we needed better organized space in our kitchen, and more of it. We assumed an addition on that side of the house was in order. So with our ideas and budget in mind we began to interview contractors. This is how we met Glen Lumia and his Team at Creative Design Construction, Inc. Glen and his designer walked into our home and he immediately began talking about ideas. Our ideas. His ideas. And how he thought we could get the most out of our budget. He said to us, “Sure we can build an addition, but that’s half your budget and I don’t think you need to. You’ve got a lot of space here. It’s just chopped up and laid out all wrong.” Rather than adding to the footprint of the house, Glen showed us what was possible working within our existing square footage. We worked together over weeks, looking at many different designs. The final plan included removing our powder room, a small hallway and closing up an unnecessary side door which almost doubled the square footage of our existing kitchen, building a large pass through from the kitchen into the dining room to open up the space even further, adding a new double window in the dining room where none existed before, and renovating our entire foyer giving us a new powder room off the foyer.
Every member of Glen’s team is a professional and an absolute pleasure to work with. We had a single dedicated designer, project manager, lead carpenter and crew assigned to our job. We saw these people every day. I can’t say enough wonderful things about Maria, Mike, Jorge and Gil. My wife works from home, and with her being very pregnant at the time demolition began, and then caring for our newborn daughter during the second half of construction, I was more than a little bit relieved to know exactly who would be in our home each day. Glen also hires excellent subs for the plumbing and electrical and flooring. They too were extremely professional and a pleasure to work with.
In the end, Glen and his Team worked with us every step of the way. From that first consultation all the way to the final walk through. Every member of the team is extremely accessible. I had everyone’s cell phone number and email address. Glen took each and every one of my phone calls and spent as much time as was needed talking me through every step of the project. They took all of our must haves and would likes into account and paired them with their collective expertise and design vision to create a space that we never even knew was possible. We feel like we live in a new home.
I give Glen Lumia and his entire Team at Creative Design Construction, Inc. my highest recommendation. Whatever your project is, I assure you they will treat you with the upmost professionalism, courtesy, generosity, and respect while delivering the highest quality craftsmanship. Do not hesitate. Call with confidence.
Dear Creative Design,
We hired Creative Design Construction to complete a kitchen remodel, electric upgrade, new exterior doors (front entrance and back), and all new bedroom doors and trim. This company went far and above what my wife and I ever expected. James was our Remodeling Consultant. He was always available for whatever question we had. Jorge was our Project Manager. He always took the time to explain all phases of the project. As all of his crew did the same. The entire Creative Design Company was outstanding! Everyone took such pride in their jobs. Every day, they would go out of their way to clean the work site. We would recommend Creative Design Construction to everyone!
Gary & Marline E.
Dear Creative Design,
“Glen Lumia, James Borenius and the rest of the team provided insightful designs / recommendations and most importantly, delivered quality craftsmanship. All this was expected from a premier company of this caliber, but Creative Designs continued to exceed expectations from the design phase through completion of our home renovation. There are a number qualities that clearly separates Creative Designs from their competitors, including their focus on collaborative solutions, attention to detail and unmatched customer service. If your are building a house or remodeling, Creative Designs performs a step above the rest and will not stop until you have a finished product that you are proud to call home.”
Ron & Maria R.
Dear Creative Design,
We completed a major house renovation, including the exterior and a complete kitchen remodel and could not be happier with the service and quality of the work we received through Creative Design. It has been a little over a year since we completed our project and we are thrilled with the results. We have heard nightmare stories of other contractors and would like to assure anyone considering Creative Design for any size project, that you will never second guess your choice if you choose Creative Design. Their work is impeccable and the service they provide is top notch.
Dear Creative Design,
We love our new kitchen!!! Thank you, dear Maria, for your ever evolving design! You transformed a small dark space into a bright beautiful spacious country kitchen. Not only is it so pretty – it is perfectly functional- I have room for everything and the best thing is I enjoy cooking in it! Just wanted to let you know I was thinking about how talented you are and how grateful we are!
With lots of love,
Didi, David and Danny C.
Dear Creative Design,
We have been living in our home, circa 1920, for 38 years and have done several remodeling and improvement projects over the years. But throughout these previous renovations, we always strive to maintain the character of the older style while bringing it up-to-date. We replaced the cabinets in our kitchen, 10’x13′, approximately 27 years ago but we have always wanted to improve the kitchen’s work space. Several years ago, we were able to watch the weekly progress of our friends’ expansive kitchen renovation being done by Creative Design. We were so impressed by what we saw.
When we finally decided to approach our own project, this past spring, we were fortunate to have Creative Design’s James Borenius as our kitchen designer. With his guidance and expertise we brought not only functionality, but remarkable classic style to our space. We determined that the kitchen would be demolished back to the wall studs and realigning walls and appliances. Aside from the smallness of the space, James had to work around the room’s archway to the dining room (which we wanted kept to maintain the charm of the house), a back door, a door into the family room, and a double window over the sink. The resulting plan makes the room appear much larger, with improved work flow and increased storage. Because of the space’s uniqueness and our choice, inset cherry custom cabinets were used, several with glass inserts and interior lighting. Having new red oak flooring in the kitchen, we decided to replace the old, worn oak flooring in the dining room and living room also. Throughout the project, we feel one of the primary factors leading to its success was the continual communication we had with him. We had regular meetings with follow-up emails to address all details, schedules, and questions we may have had. We continually had confidence in him from start to finish.
In addition to James, we were so extremely pleased with our head carpenter, Jorge Alarcon. Jorge had also worked on our friends’ renovation and we were well acquainted with his masterful skill and expertise, not only in carpentry, but all other aspects of the construction job. Dealing with an older home can often lead to a number of challenging situations, and Jorge handled all of ours superbly, making everything work as planned. He also was wonderful at keeping us informed of schedules and kept us involved with what was being done. Several things had to be determined on site after demolition and he and James discussed these things with us thoroughly. He and all of his co-workers showed so much consideration and care, cleaning up the work area at the end of each day. He is a credit to the perfection that Creative Design upholds.
Which brings us to these last several points. The additional craftsmen and contractors that worked on our project–the plumbers, electricians, tile installers, backsplash templater and installer, flooring specialists–were all excellent.
Also, communication is key to a successful outcome. We received weekly status reports from their office, outlining what had been done that week and what was still to be done. If we had any concerns or questions by either phone call or email, all were answered and addressed promptly and courteously. When delays occurred (and always out of their control) they tried so hard to keep things as close to schedule as possible. (Note: As a client, it is important that you also show preparedness, patience, and respect. It will help make the whole process much smoother!)
From our experience in our association with Glen Lumia, the owner, we feel that his attention to detail and quality workmanship and materials is what makes Creative Design synonymous with excellence. From looking at their beautiful photo gallery of projects, they have created many expansive, incredible rooms. What makes us so appreciative and impressed is that he and his team treated our smaller-sized kitchen renovation with the same attention and pride as any of their more extensive projects.
We thank them and are delighted with a dream kitchen that met and surpassed our hopes!
Charlotte and Bernie G.
Dear Creative Design,
We hired Creative Design to do our basement which was completely unfinished, and we couldn’t be happier with the results. I had a pretty good idea of what we wanted to do with the space design wise and just needed a company to make this vision a reality. James Borenius went beyond making our vision a reality, giving us a space beyond our dreams. Every idea was expanded upon and made even better, nothing was “not-doable” and when the barn doors I wanted were not in the budget he came up with an alternative, I had not thought of, which was just as beautiful. Jorge Alarcon was our lead carpenter and he also did an amazing job and was a pleasure to work with everyday. They were an awesome team!
Also, we had very good experiences with everyone else that Creative Design brought in to do other work from electrical to flooring, etc,. Seems like Glen Lumia (the owner) hires only the best people to work with him. I am highly recommending Creative Design and James Borenius to my best friends and family. This is a contractor I would trust with any project and having that peace of mind is very important, especially when you hear so many horror stories about dealing with contractors.
John and Ariane C.
Dear Creative Design,
I just wanted to say thanks again for providing me with a ‘name’ and number to help me with a small job. As I told you, I am in no shape to climb a ladder and you really helped me. It came out perfect and I could not have done it without you!
Dear Creative Design,
I just wanted to send you a note to tell you how happy we were with your team of experts during our kitchen remodel. They were always professional, respectful, pleasant and they cleaned the job site daily.
Both my husband (attorney) and I (paralegal) have seen many cases involving construction contractors, so we are extremely jaded and we were very cautious and guarded when beginning this project. I expected extreme stress making phone calls, chasing contractors to come back, disaster, etc.
Instead, our experience with Creative Design was stress free. (How often do you hear that about a kitchen remodel?) The contractors showed up daily until the job was done! Every issue was addressed pleasantly, no matter how minor. (I am a type A personality). I would leave for work every morning without any worries about who would be in our home or what I would find when I returned home in the evening.
We dealt with James Borenius the most, who is absolutely wonderful and an invaluable asset to your team. I e-mailed my lists to him and called him with all my questions/concerns/issues and he immediately took care of the issues (always with a smile) making the necessary calls, etc. For example, on a Saturday morning I e-mailed James about a question on the painting of our kitchen doors. He promptly responded and I called the painter. When I e-mailed James again (about 5 minutes later) to tell him I had spoken with our painter, he told me that he had just spoken with our painter too. Now that is customer service. He was always on top of everything! During our numerous meetings, he was never afraid to roll up his sleeves and check something in the soffits, under the sink, in the cabinets, etc.
Without James guiding us with all of our choices, we would not have today the beautiful kitchen we envisioned. He was amazing throughout the whole remodel. He always guided us but never pushed us into anything he knew we would not be happy with in our home. We now consider James a friend and feel confident that we can rely on him for any guidance we may need in future home projects.
We are so pleased with Creative Design, my husband has already highly recommended James and Creative Design to a colleague from Bergen County who is looking to remodel his home.
Sincerely and with much gratitude,
Mary Ann and Charles L.
Dear James & Glen:
Gary and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for an amazing kitchen!
Our experience with Creative Design was completely positive. Your professionalism, personal touch and creativity was outstanding. In addition, the entire staff was a pleasure to work with. From the start of construction until completion, the staff was always very professional, courteous, completely dedicated to their work and mindful that they were working in a functioning home and tried to keep it as livable as possible.
We are very pleased and happy with our new kitchen and are enjoying it more than we could have ever expected. I am truly enjoying cooking in a kitchen that is properly designed. I don’t feel like I’m in a closet anymore.
James, you were such a pleasure to work with, always pleasant, helpful and most of all completely dedicated to pleasing us.
We would be happy to speak to potential clients who are looking for a reference on Creative Design and if you would like to take pictures, please call us.
Theresa & Gary E.
With heartfelt gratitude we wish to thank you for the professional services you provided during our kitchen renovation. We are absolutely delighted with the results.
Not only are we extremely happy with the quality of cabinetry and kitchen design, but just as appreciative of the customer service we received from you. Since the first day of our introduction you were always available to promptly answer our questions and alleviate any concerns. As a result of your attentiveness the project ran without a hitch.
Additionally, we wish to recognize the caliber of craftsmen you introduced us to. Their contribution not only added to the beauty of the final results, but enhanced the overall experience.
Our fondest regards to you and Creative Design,
Jan & Perry P.
Dear Creative Design Team,
Thanks to all of you, I LOVE LOVE LOVE my new kitchen and hard wood floors!!!
I appreciate your guidance, responsiveness, and attention to detail while working on this project.
From beginning to completion, including the first time I visited the showroom, this has been a great experience.
Thank you so much and looking forward to our next project together!
With appreciation and warm regards,
Dear Creative Design,
We can’t thank you enough for yet another job well done. Our new cabinet doors and panels are installed and they look great. Michael was professional and neat. Our kitchen looks the same as when you initially installed it eight years ago-beautiful!
Thank you for standing behind your work-even though the finish on the doors was defective you still made sure it was corrected-with all the time that’s gone by-it is heartening for us that your standard is high and you deserve the stellar reputation you have earned.
Hope your family is well and happy, and we wish you continued success-you deserve it!
Julie and Jim N.
We are completing a full house renovation and hope to be done in July of this year and so far, on schedule! Creative Design has done an amazing job with all of the details. My husband and I have asked many times to revise/change things along the way and the team has gone above and beyond to make it happen. Creative did our first renovation back in 1999 and we had no doubt that they would do a great job when we hired them again for the entire house. We would recommend Creative Design to anyone without hesitation. They are extremely skilled and very professional!
Dear Glen and Maria,
I would just like to take a moment to say “thank you” for the manner in which you have already helped to make this master bathroom experience a success. The level of professionalism, expertise and creativity offered by the Creative Design team is unsurpassed and, I’m sure, the reason that you have become the gold standard for all other design/construction companies in the area.
Could we have gone with a less expensive firm…perhaps…but would the level of services be anywhere close to those we receive from Creative Design? Absolutely not! Will we ever go to anyone else for construction? No! Plus…we love working with Hairo…he is a master of his craft!
We look forward to another beautiful room…
Dear Creative Design,
We absolutely love our new kitchen! Thanks so much for putting together such a great team to help our vision become a reality!
Robert and Michelle F.
We just wanted to let you know that everything looks great! You guys really did a nice job on the in-law suite. I had no idea what was involved in an addition like this and we are really glad we used Creative Design.
We have received so many complements on the work that was done, nothing but nice things to say about all the guys that worked on our project. Everyone was very courteous and are true professionals. Karen’s parents could not believe how clean everything was kept, even during the construction! Her parents could not be happier with the end result and now we are waiting for Creative Design to come to our side of the house.
Thanks again for an amazing job.
Kerry and Karen H.
Dear Creative Design,
We absolutely love our new kitchen! Thank you so much for everything, Mike Jorge, and Glen were always professional and went above and beyond our expectations. We truly appreciate all their work. Looking forward to working with you again.
Kevin and Kim M.
We just want to let you know that the portico is doing great. What a winter! It has held up beautifully and we are very pleased. We still get compliments from neighbors and friends. Should have done it years ago.
Thanks for all your efforts. It was a pleasure working with you.
Gladys and Herb L.
To the Team at Creative Design Construction
We write this small note of thanks to all of you. You have all in your own way have made the past three or so months pleasurable and have left our home in far better shape than it was when you arrived.
From top to bottom you all posses’ great talent and have demonstrated whatever the task on hand, you can get it done without fail and in a way that is soothing and free of stress. The project was managed with true professionalism, day-to-day activities handled without missing even the smallest item, you watched over our home as if it was yours and took control of your subcontractors in a favorable manner.
To the field team, it’s hard to believe that in this great country there are people who have as much concern for their work as for the customer’s well being. You are all true craftsmen.
In closing, we want you all to know that the pleasure was ours in this short relationship. We can be a little difficult and you guys handled it well. We sometimes asked for more than was possible and you accommodated us until we were very happy. You made what many think a difficult period of time, quite enjoyable. We wish you all the best.
Phil and Marsha D.
“We could not be happier with the results of our new (old) house. The professionalism and by EVERYONE at Creative Design is most remarkable. Our construction job was a very smooth process with very few bumps along the way and most importantly, Alan and I are still happily married just as Glen promised :-). The workmanship by your craftsmen is superb, both in-house staff and subcontractors. A very special thank you to the Lead Carpenter and the Project Manager. Without them the beautiful results would not have been possible. JOB WELL DONE!! Thank you to our Selections Coordinator for your invaluable help with the color selections. The bathrooms are just perfect.
We would like to thank each and every person at Creative Design for making our dream home a reality. I LOVE MY KITCHEN and of course Alan loves the family room!!! The kids claim my cooking even tastes better.”
Deirdre and I want to again let you know how completely impressed we are with the Creative Design staff. They continue to impress us with their diligence and commitment to making this project an absolute priority. They consistently are available to us to ensure that all our questions are answered and continue to communicate the project plan while allowing us to make tweaks.
It is clear that each team member is professional and dedicated to a successful project completion.
Thanks again for putting together such a great team for us!
Thomas & Deirdre H.
“We would like to thank you and everyone associated with your company for the great experience we had remodeling our bathroom. From the initial meeting, to the final inspection, everything went as advertised. Our Project Manager was very helpful in coordinating all aspects of the work.
As I have told you in the past on other remodels you have done for us, the most important thing to us is honesty. We were very comfortable with every worker you sent to our house. They were all very helpful and polite. A lot of effort was taken to protect the parts of our home that were not being worked on. Every night before the crew left they cleaned up the entire work area and any part of the house they had to walk through.
I would like to give special thanks to our lead carpenter on the job. He was a true professional. He was very interested to make sure the job was done exactly the way we wanted. In the middle of the construction we went on a small vacation. We had no problem leaving our house key with him. I felt he was taking care of our home as if it were his own. He called me while we were away keeping us up-to-date on all progress.
I would also like to commend you on your choice of sub-contractors. Both the plumbing and tile contractors were wonderful. They showed the same professionalism as your workers.
If you ever need a referral I would be happy to do so for you.”
John & Donna D.
“We wanted to write and thank you for the outstanding job your organization performed with our recent kitchen renovation. While many people tend to hear all sorts of “horror” stories about home renovation projects, our experience with Creative Design could not have been more rewarding!
The entire process worked seamlessly starting with your expert advice and guidance through the design and material selection process (and helping us keep to our budget!) through the skilled craftsmanship and professionalism of your staff and employees. The final result was a kitchen that is a not only showcase but a reflection of our lifestyle.
Your scheduling system is not only unheard of in the industry; it worked! We were able to rely on the commitment dates provided and it helped to make the entire process more predictable and pain-free.
We cannot give enough praise to your employees who worked on our project. Their attention to detail, quality of work, management of the subcontractors, communication with us, and respect for our home is what sets Creative Design Construction apart from others in your industry. Particularly noteworthy were the efforts of your Lead Carpenter and the Cabinet Install team; you are lucky to have such dedicated and skilled people!
Once again, thank you for a job well done and we look forward to working with you on future projects.”
Gordon B. & Cheryl R.
“Shelley and I finally have taken some time away from enjoying our new kitchen and thought we should write to you to say how much we appreciate a job well done! Not only has our kitchen served its role as a food preparation and eating area, but also as the focal point for all of our recent entertaining.
I cannot begin to tell you all the compliments we have received from our friends and neighbors. Everyone has been awed by the scope, quality and the design. We are extremely pleased with the integration of the eating area into the overall work flow of the kitchen. This design feature has met and surpassed our expectations.
I want to, once again, thank you and your notable staff and subcontractors for their professionalism, courtesy and skill in completing the project. The Cabinet Installers are true craftsmen that not only know how to handle tools, but also have the ability to create and design on the spot. The Lead Carpenter is a gem and moves people and tasks in proper sequence and efficiency to get the job done on time. All your workers treated our home as if it was theirs and kept it clean as possible with the work being done.”
Shelley & Elliott R.
“Years ago we purchased a house that was not our dream home, yet we felt it had great potential. In different phases over the years, Creative Design has performed various renovations and has indeed created a lovely home for us inside and out.
What impressed us the most was having someone listen intently to our desires and develop a design befitting of our needs, as well as our budget. Creative Design’s idea of a “big picture” approach resulted in different phases of construction over time allowing for growth as our family grew and our needs and priorities changed. The creativity and innovative solutions made our house both beautiful and functional.
When it came time to renovate our kitchen, we visited the Creative Design showroom and together with the insightful designer had seemingly effortlessly picked out our dream kitchen. We were truly amazed at how easy it was to make decisions about such a major renovation when we viewed all the displays offered at the showroom.
We were really able to procure a visual image of our “new” kitchen. Being two working parents of small children, we certainly appreciate such a novelty! Considering the fact we have worked with Creative Design many times in the past, have the utmost confidence in their ability, as well as the attention expended to every minute detail, we felt totally comfortable giving them carte blanche with respect to the design of our kitchen.
Undertaking each different renovation and addition was a monumental decision for us. Bravo to Creative Design for your creativity, your professionalism, and your trustworthiness! These wonderful traits have given us the comfort level we required to move forward with each and every project. We look forward to working together again in the future!”
Michael & Tina F.
“Saying thanks is easy… the hardest part is showing Creative Design the gratitude that comes from our hearts. You have done so much for us, from the start of the construction to the completion, there could not have been a job more well done. We have heard the horror stories of renovations, and we felt our renovation project went really smoothly.
The outcome is unbelievable! We just love the look on the faces of our family and friends when they see how it turned out. Now it is truly a remarkable house!
We hope this “Thank You Very Much” will show in some small way the deep appreciation we send your way today.”
Michael & Marianne L.
“I must start off by apologizing, this letter as it is long over due. Our kitchen remodel began as a portion of an entire home remodel, but I can honestly say it easily turned into the highlight on our renovation.
During our initial interview process, we met with several kitchen designers who presented various design plans, but each seemed to be missing “something”. What we found is that Creative Design provided the “missing piece”. It was apparent that your design plan was created by investing the time to understand our lifestyles and the vision to incorporate that into the kitchen of our dreams!
Creative Design exceeded our expectations throughout each stage of the process. We took comfort in knowing you were always accessible, promptly addressing any questions or concerns. When it came to the installation, the Cabinet Installers provided outstanding craftsmanship, meticulously installing the cabinets, with attention to every detail. (We were also impressed on how well he cleaned up after each day).
As for the kitchen itself, it’s AMAZING! We have yet to be in a kitchen that can compare to what we now have ourselves! Creative Design provided us with a kitchen that’s nothing short of prize winning Magazine material! We take great pride in the fact that everyone who has been in our kitchen is astonished. We have become all too familiar with comments: “sensational”, “stunning”, and “incredible”. Statements that can be easily confirmed by merely looking at the photos of the kitchen or now the Decora Catalogue!
I can’t tell you how many times we have heard the phrase, “I heard your kitchen in absolutely amazing”. (And you can never hear that enough either!) I find myself frequently showing off photos of our kitchen as would a proud new parent!
Given the outstanding job of the Creative Design team, please do not hesitate to use us as a reference. We would gladly welcome the opportunity to share with others our experience.”
Michael and Alana D.
“In 2006, we decided to renovate our kitchen and adjacent dining room. We heard a lot of positive feedback regarding Creative Design Construction and booked a consultation.
We met with our remodeling consultant at showroom which offers many beautiful model kitchens and assorted accessories. Their knowledge, professionalism, and honesty immediately made up our minds. After spending some time in the showroom, we knew at that moment Creative Design Construction was the company we wanted to use. Our renovation began shortly after. Although nervous and scared with our huge undertaking, we had the utmost confidence in our decision, and knew we were in great hands every step of the way.
From the beginning of demolition to the install of cabinetry our renovations went so smoothly. Our project manager was phenomenal. His knowledge and patience were exceptional. We were very impressed with the constant communication between all staff and the caring each staff member took on our project.
We can’t brag enough about every team member at Creative Design. Even though we were under construction, we actually enjoyed having every team member in our home. They were professional, friendly, courteous, respectful and neat.
Our project is absolutely gorgeous! Anyone who has seen our kitchen asks the same question……”Who created this masterpiece? It looks like something out of a magazine!” We love to bring friends into our home to show it off! We would highly recommend Creative Design Construction to you. If you can believe this, Creative Design actually made our renovation a pleasurable experience.
Creative Design Construction is a professional, outstanding and well run organization.
We thank you so very much for creating our dream kitchen and appreciate all your hard work and caring!!!
Nancy and Jeff R.
“Thank you so much! As we near the completion of our home improvements, we wanted to take to the time to thank you for your beautiful work. We are thrilled with our new home.
First, we really appreciate your fine craftsmanship. It became clear in the very early stages of this major renovation that you truly care about your work and take pride in what you do. That level of dedication continued throughout all phase of the project. Second, you patiently put up with us-even the kids who kept peering in, to see the progress. That was really nice of you.
Next, we couldn’t help but notice your neat appearance. It really does matter! You truly are professionals and we’re glad that we chose Creative Design. On time and within budget was appreciated tremendously, since we were staying off site during the project.
Finally, we plan to use Creative Design again for our kitchen renovations, and would highly recommend you to anyone interested in fine work at a reasonable price. ”
Joanne & Joseph F.
“We just wanted to drop you a note to let you know what a great experience we had working with Creative Design on our addition. When we first approached your company, we had already spent over $5,000.00 on an architect and we still were not completely satisfied with the plan. After our initial meeting with a remodeling consultant, we quickly realized that expenditure was completely unnecessary. Creative Design understood exactly what we were looking for and had the design and building knowledge to know what could be done and what would work for our project.
After the consultant drew the new plans, we got the room we were dreaming of. And they knew exactly how to build it. From the very beginning, we knew we had made the right decision. The Creative Design staff was knowledgeable, respectful, courteous and best of all dependable, timely and responsible. All the employees, including office staff, project managers and craftsmen were more than accommodating.
As everyone knows, major construction projects can be a bit intimidating. There are always obstacles along the way but with Creative Design on the project, those obstacles never amounted to anything but a positive experience for all involved. With Creative Design employees spending so much time at our home, they almost became part of the family. It became much too quiet when the project was completed and they all left. If we had it to do over again, we would not change a thing and you will be the first one we call on when we decide to do another construction project.
Marc and Wendy P.
“As the owner of your own business, I realize that you cannot possibly be everywhere all the time so I just wanted to be your eyes and ears for a minute to let you know about your Lead Carpenter.
From the first minute he stepped foot in our home, he treated it as if it were his own home. Everyone on your team was courteous but he took a personal interest in our project including checking up on things over the weekend to make sure all was well and to keep us continuously updated on any work or schedule changes. He was always aware of what was happening and he was always pleasant and smiling. The people that he worked with on the job knew what was expected of them and thanks to the Lead Carpenter , always knew what was going on.
Even when we were on vacation in the middle of the project, I knew that our home was in capable hands and there was never a time that he was unreachable. He kept us updated and contacted us if there were any questions that the crew had. All this combined with his attention to detail and craftsmanship makes him one of a kind. There are two specific instances that I would like to share with you:
One day towards the end of the project, he did not realize that I was listening and was talking out loud to himself and was concerned that the porta-potty was costing your company money and was not being used. The second instance was when he was reminding another, newer Creative employee that when you are in a “Creative” shirt, you represent every aspect of the company and always need to put your best foot forward.
As a businessman, I know the value of a good employee. I would do anything to have an employee like him on my team every day and he should be commended for a job well done.”
“I wanted to share with you how impressed my family was with the professionalism of all your employees at Creative Design who contributed to the recent renovation of our Master Bathroom.
You’ll be happy to know that the Creative Design staff reflects the quality standards and dedication we’ve come to expect from the Creative Design brand. From the office staff who called to schedule work times and check if everything was ok, to the people who were at our house working, to those whose job it was to clean up for the day; they all deserve special thanks for making our experience a pleasurable one.
We also want to make a special mention regarding one of your employees in particular, who we feel went above and beyond to assist us and remain comfortable during this process. Our Lead Carpenter made sure that we knew what was going on at every phase of construction, and he also worked hard to ensure our home was just the way we left it when my family came home at night. Leaving our home every morning, knowing that he was there, was a godsend.
As you know, a renovation project can be a trying time for any household, however our Lead Carpenter and the Creative Design staff did everything to ensure that the inconveniences experienced were minimal and that the job was accomplished the right way and for that we are grateful.
So much so that we are already looking forward to our next Creative Design renovation project…a two-car garage!!!

Sincerely, Ida P.
Our project is coming to a close and I wanted you to know that Marsha and I are extremely thankful for the help you gave us at the time we launched this massive undertaking. Your knowledge of design and your understanding of customer’s needs were very obvious in each of the meetings we shared. Your help with the hardware selection was essential because neither me or my wife can make decisions quickly. The assistance you provide the men in the field keeps the project going and allows them to concern themselves with the pressing matter of construction. They are very appreciative and so am I.
In closing, I wanted to thank you again, it was a pleasure to meet you and I wish you the best.
Phil and Marsha D.
