Essence Design Studio

Kitchen and Bath Design & Remodeling

Thank you for visiting my website!   I am no longer taking on any more clients at the moment as I will be on maternity leave, and taking a sabbatical from the business in order to focus on my children.  However, I may reassess taking on clients again at a later date and occasional projects.  I am happy to answer any questions you may have if you need resources or a step in the right direction.  Thank you so much! - Jessica

About Us

About Us

When we decided to create Essence Design Studio in 2008, we opted to strive for the best services and pricing to offer our clientele. Our goal was to offer an array of design services in an al a carte fashion where each client has the ability to select the level of service required for their project. With services that range from design only to full turn-key design and remodeling, every client is sure to find their own fit in regards to need and budget.

During the conceptual stages of creating Essence Design, we went back and forth whether a showroom was the right direction for us and our clients. After much deliberation, we decided not to have a physical showroom. We maintain excellent relationships with numerous vendors across the Greater Cincinnati areas; therefore allowing the ability to take you to multiple vendor showrooms, if your project so requires. Furthermore, this ensures that you are able to make an informed decision while we provide you with the best possible service, pricing, and resources available.

Now, years later, we at Essence Design Studio continue to offer an unparallel design and remodeling experience with an ever expanding client base.    We truly believe that the foundation of our success is rooted in our ability to develop relationships with our clients by listening to their wants and needs and placing those ideals into action.
