July 2013 Featured Client: Savvy Cabinetry by Design
Kitchen and bath cabinets are the typical customer requests for Savvy Cabinetry by Design. But, creativity has no boundaries for this small custom cabinetry company based in Seattle’s Interbay neighborhood.
From wine cellar and studios to in-home bars, custom furniture pieces and pantries, Savvy Cabinetry by Design specializes in full service custom cabinet design. In addition to designing custom pieces, the company provides a full line of services for remodels and new construction including providing interior design expertise and sourcing flooring, countertops, appliances and hardware.
In business since 2001, Cindy Clark (designer), Ross Swift (designer), Debbie Wagner (administration and showroom manager) and Chuck Robison (marketing and sales) are co-owners and close friends.
As a designer, Ross enjoys the creativity of the process and working with homeowners to bring their ideas to life. “I can take somebody’s idea and turn that into a reality.”
He also says part of the fun for him is the incredible variety of projects. “It’s always different because everybody has different tastes,” he says. “Every day is different. Every job is different.”
Ross and his partners enjoy following the evolution of styles as design trends change. Savvy Cabinetry by Design recently worked on a large kitchen remodel of a loft-style condo in downtown Seattle with a very contemporary, urban design. People are beginning to embrace a true contemporary style—which is exciting—says Ross.
For homeowners considering a kitchen or bathroom remodel, Ross recommends thumbing through design magazines and visiting web sites such as Houzz.com and Porch.com to get ideas and recommendations from other remodeling veterans. Flag things that you’re attracted to even if it isn’t of a kitchen or bathroom, says Ross. What you like will be a guide to get a designer started.
