Over the last 16 months, Cecy Gillen Designs have done project after project for me including a full renovation of two bathrooms and a kitchen. I could not be happier with the results and plan to continue using them for any future projects. I was happy with the quality of their work and their reliability. They are trustworthy and respected my home. Cecy is a talented designer and helps you to realize your vision for a beautiful space through just the right tile, flooring, color and fixture selections. I appreciated the personalized level of service that Cecy provides and always making herself available when I had a question or concern. You will find no better communicator than Cecy. Not only does she respond to emails/phone calls in a timely manner, but she initiates contact on a regular basis to update you on how the project is going, what they will be working on next and what their upcoming schedule is like. And lastly, Cecy is an excellent problem solver. I have an old house and there were so many unforeseen roadblocks along the way that I thought would derail the project for sure, but Cecy was not to be deterred by these challenges and always seemed to find a workable solution which I appreciated greatly. All in all, they are a wonderful team and I thank them for all that they have done to make my house a beautiful home.

Quick. Professional. Courteous. Went above and beyond. Creative when obstacles arose. Neat while working and cleaned up completely when finished. Great team. Great leadership. They will take care of your house as they would of their own. Thank you, Cecy!

Love working with Cecy! Her suggestions and advice were great and we love the painting that was done! Quality of work was excellent and each person who came into my home was professional, friendly, neat and polite. I will certainly contact them for additional projects. Highly recommend Cecy Designs!!!!

We needed a variety of repairs to get our home ready for market. I didnt want to spend alot, just cosmetic repairs. Ceci totally got it. She found a salvage door to replace our front door, she replaced panels instead of entire garage doors. The project kept growing and they had to juggle their schedules to fit us in. Great company for a variety of work.

Cecy and her team had done an outstanding job for us on interior painting of our entire house and several additional small miscellaneous projects. She understood our needs and did her very best to complete the project in a timely manner. It was great working with her!

I have loved working with Cecy and her team! We started out with a complete remodel of an outdated kitchen but she has helped me to truly transform my townhouse into my home. Cecy provided daily updates, her team was quick, efficient and very flexible when I changed my mind on certain details. I'm looking forward to a few more projects with Cecy and her crew. I would highly recommend Cecy Gillen Designs to anyone - as long as you don't need them when I want to hire them! :)

Very reliable always in contact daily updates. And was done in the time frame that was promised if I had any concerns it was taken care of with no questions. Very Happy overall with all the work that was done. Hired this company just for a bath remodel and ended up using them for laundry room floor tile, kitchen counters and backsplash tile, New Front entry door and they painted the whole interior of our house A+ contractor would hire again in a heartbeat hard to find people like this.

Cecy and her team transformed our dark, cramped, outdated 1960s kitchen into a fresh, modern and highly functional space. She had a great vision to maximize the space we had, and we came out of the project with an open-concept kitchen/dining area, a separate wet bar, a mud room and even an extra powder room that we didn't have before! Cecy's attention to detail and creative problem solving (plenty of surprises pop up when you are dealing with a 100 year old home!) left us with a better space than we could have imagined. Her team repeatedly went the extra mile for us with all kinds of thoughtful touches: from designing and building a custom sink to fit into our new powder room, installing a hand rail down our basement stairs, and even installing a beautiful mirror reclaimed from one of their prior projects - free of charge! We are absolutely in love our new kitchen, it's become our favorite part of our home.

Cecy and her team transformed my kitchen and made it the centerpiece of my home! It was a pleasure to work with Cecy - she is smart, inspired and very detail-oriented. Cecy offered me excellent suggestions along the way and helped me to pick out everything from the cabinets and countertop to the pendant light fixtures. Her team is reliable, hard-working and clean up every last speck of dust. Looking forward to hiring Team Cecy for my next project.

Project: Remodel a Kitchen
Cecy was wonderful to work with on our overall design and she was always willing to make an extra trip back to finalize or fix something that wasn't right. Her rates were reasonable, they cleaned up every day they were here, and the work was completed quickly.
