Thank you to the entire team at Modern Design. From the first meeting with Amber to the final design to installation I have had an excellent experience. This is the first time I have done a kitchen remodel or needed to work with a company for cabinetry/counter tops so I did not know what to expect. Modern Design set the bar high! They did a great job of understanding my space and my style to provide a design that fit me and my space. They did a great job of making suggestions to have me think about different choices that I otherwise would not have thought about. At the same time they made sure my design was a complete project. I was amazed at how well the installation went (ok...I wasn't actually home...my contractor was there...but the feedback was that it was fantastic). There was even one piece that didn't fit just right...Modern Design had it fixed yet that night so it was ready for the finish of the install the next day. Other places that could have taken a few weeks. The kitchen looks amazing and is far better than anything I could have dreamed of. I have to compliment Modern Design on their professionalism, design capabilities, ability to fulfill their promise on quality work, and ultimately making my remodel dream come true!!! THANK YOU!!!
I am extremely pleased with the work that Modern Design has done, it's definitely worth the price! They did my whole new construction modern house. I was amazed (and so were most of the other contractors at the job site) with the quality of materials used and the amount of time and effort put in to install the cabinetry. Fitment is perfect, which makes their job look easy, and anyone who has dealt with remodeling or construction knows it's not true. Also M.D. was able to guide me in the right direction with accessories right away (which probably saved a lot of time) due to their expertise and good selection of suppliers. Not to forget to mention great customer service and even sharing their contractor for another part of the job needed in this home. These guys turned my vision into reality where other cabinet makers thought some things were not possible. Thank You!
Modern Design handled a remodel for our kitchen, bar and family room in late 2015. Amber Ranzau helped to design the layout of the cabinets, developed the color scheme and made furniture, rugs, etc. The process was easy and flawless from end to end.We were so thrilled with the way our first re-model turned out with Modern Design, we asked Amber to help design our bedrooms. Amber, as always, was amazing. I cannot stress enough how much help she has been, and how she is always on target with our style. I follow her plans exactly each time, and I am continuously thrilled with the design. She saves me so much time and decision making.I will absolutely reach out again when I re-design my basement!
Words can not even describe how happy we are with our cabinets and countertops custom designed by Modern Design. The process so easy and their quality is absolutely top notch. We went to the showroom and Amber Ranzau was so pleasant to work with. She listened, was so knowledgable and helped us infuse our personal style in but gave awesome guidance. Her partner David Hoen and his team were so professional and timely with measurements and staying on timing.Finally, the install was so flawless- we truly couldn't be more pleased. Our kitchen is unique and reflects our family.Thank you Modern Design!!!
Dear Nate and Craftsmen/ Craftswomen of Modern Design,I wanted to write a brief note from Heidi, TJ and myself thanking Modern Design for the wonderful cabinet craftsmanship and service. This was our first experience ever with “custom anything” and we were not sure what to expect besides a large cash outlay.With that being said, we couldn’t be happier with the finished product and how our lower level space will be such a meaningful family area for years to come!From the onset, Nate was diligent, receptive and creative during the design process. He offered great suggestions and solutions to the existing space and the results speak for themselves! Nate was regularly available to answer questions and able to adjust our install dates multiple times on our behalf.The installation team made their installing the least bit stressful too. They were conscientious in their install as if it was their own residence. They were respectful and even allowed me to watch as they let their expertise go to work. The time it took to install both the bookcase and entertainment wall was exactly what Nate and the installers expected to it to be. No surprises. I have had many techs, installers, trades people in my home in the past and the most irritating thing for me is that these people a) are essentially strangers, you have to establish trust with them in your home, b) don’t start/complete it when they say they will, or, c) they don’t always treat it like it is their home, oftentimes leave garbage, debris or whatever. With this team, besides the new cabinetry, the lower level space was cleaner than prior to their arrival!Lastly, please extend my gratitude to teams that designed, measured, cut, glued, screwed, assembled, stained and packaged up our pieces. I know there’s a lot that goes on behind the scene. The entire look is consistent, has a durable and professional look, and is everything we came to expect with a custom experience. Without that team, it wouldn’t have mattered how well Nate and the installers did on the front and back end. So please extend my thanks to them as well.Thank you to Nate, the teams mentioned above and any others behind the scenes that made the Modern Design experience memorable! We have beautiful furniture for our family to make memories with for so many years to come, we couldn’t be happier!Jim, Heidi, and TJ KrocakPlymouth, MN
Jo, I wanted to thank you and Troy, Brian and Amber for doing a terrific job on our family room cabinets. It really enhances the look and feel of our home. Everyone from top to bottom did a very professional job with the designing, scheduling, communication and most importantly the craftsmanship of the project. Great job to all involved and I would highly recommend Modern Design to anyone. Thanks again!
From my initial tour of the company to the finishing touches on the installation of my cabinetry, Modern Design was outstanding. Every member of the team who worked on my remodeling project (kitchen and 2 bathrooms) was professional, responsive and exacting. I am so pleased with how beautiful my rooms are due to the craftsmanship of Modern Design. It is a first-class operation in every regard. I couldn't be more pleased with the results.
From the initial contact with Troy through the final details of our project, we couldn't be happier with the entire Modern Design Team. Owning a Design/Build firm we are extremely particular and detailed. Modern Design has truly exceeded our expectations. Every stage of the process is a well oiled machine. The Modern Design Team is very friendly, helpful, talented and ensure you're updated with communication regularly. The craftsmanship of this team is truly un-matched!
We have worked with the Modern Design team on a couple of projects. Both times we were thrilled with their attention to detail and backed by superior service. The craftsmanship of their work is very impressive. Combine that with genuine people and you've found the right organization to work with!!I would recommend anyone needing cabinetry to call Brad, Troy, and Jo!!
As a design/build profession working with Modern Design, I could not be happier with the quality and service Modern provides. I have worked with them on multiple projects, over a four year period of time. They are always timely and professional, and their beautiful showroom is very helpful when assisting clients in choosing styles/finishes, etc. Modern Design is my first choice in custom cabinetry.
