Kristyn Bester Design is a full-service architectural and interior design studio executing projects of all scales, from kitchens and bathrooms to additions and whole house renovations.

A full range of services include architectural plans for interior and exterior design, historic design and restoration, fixture and material selection, permitting, engineering documentation, contractor communication and consultation during construction.


Design starts with getting to know each other. I want to know what you love and don’t love about your space, what inspires you and the special memories or experiences you want your space to capture. We will walk each room and brainstorm solutions together that will improve how you live in your home. After our first meeting you will receive a design services proposal specific to your project.


Our detailed dimensions are programmed into a three-dimensional drafting program to generate the “as-built” drawing of the existing space. This becomes the foundation for new design iterations.


Utilizing our conversations about your desired style and function of each space, a design concept is created and presented. The new space comes to life with the help of photo quality renderings of the interior and exterior of your home. We will work together to fine tune the features of each space until we are ready to decide on the final design concept. If you haven’t yet selected a contractor, now is the time. I can assist with contractor interviews, communication during bidding and ultimately selection, by helping you to decide who will be the best fit for your home and your family.


Once we decide on the desired design concept, selections are made for everything from doors, windows and millwork to lighting, finishes, plumbing fixtures and appliances. Some clients have a clear vision and like to be involved with every decision and others prefer less involvement and more guidance. No matter your style, making all selections prior to construction ensures a cohesively designed space and helps contractors to stay on budget and on time.


Finally, our design concept starts becoming a reality. I make regular visits to the site during construction to ensure every detail we designed is executed accurately and beautifully by your contractor and the artisans working in your home.


Now it’s time to celebrate the completed project! We have created a space that is inspired by the architecture of your home and designed especially for you.

While the design process is detailed and systematic, no two projects are alike so my approach will be flexible and responsive to your desired level of involvement.
