We used Debbie Hammer's design services to update our kitchen and to create an adjoining sunroom to infuse the darker end of our Ontario Cottage home with light and warmth. Debbie's collaborative design incorporated the architectural heritage of the house with just enough modernity so that we now live in a bright and airy space every day. Her attention to detail at each stage of the design process was comprehensive. Debbie's years of experience were invaluable in helping us select all those important distinctive elements which make for a beautiful and functional design. Debbie also acted as overall project manager to deliver the results on time, on budget and with lots of goodwill on both sides.

Our home built in 1905 had a 1950’s kitchen. Debbie was able to see and show us possibilities that we could never have imagined! The new kitchen matches the character of the house, and provides the current conveniences, a very cozy banquette seating area and greatly improved traffic patterns. Debbie was always respectful of my ideas and preferences and was a pleasure to work with!
- Janet Hook, Stratford ON.
We had an extremely positive experience with Debbie. Her attention to detail, knowledge of trends, products, finishes and construction along with her thorough attention to detail made our project a great success. Debbie assisted on the initial design and provided all of the drawings. Her drawings were very comprehensive and made it easy to obtain competitive pricing from contractors and sub-trades. Throughout the project Debbie helped address concerns and challenges and worked to ensure the original design was completed to our satisfaction. We would highly recommend Debbie to anyone looking for a professional, competent, knowledgeable expert designer.

Debbie made our kitchen renovation the best experience you could wish for. From the initial meeting, design options, referrals to talented construction and cabinetry professionals and checking in on a regular basis, made what we anticipated to be a nightmare into a fun project with a beautiful kitchen in the end.

Debbie provided exceptional customer service for several projects we have undertaken. She listens to the needs of the clients and is able to expertly translate this into exceptional design. Her ideas brought together functionally with polished touches and has resulted in a space that far surpassed our expectations! Debbie is a pleasure to work with and is a truly talented professional.

We loved working with Debbie on our kitchen remodel! Debbie was available to us anytime to answer any of our questions. She kept our project on schedule and often thought of the 'little things' that we would have missed, no doubt saving us time and money. Debbie is knowledgeable, detailed and an absolute pleasure to work with! First rate!
- Michelle Nahrgang, Tavistock ON
Our Victorian cottage was in desperate need of a full kitchen reno. Debbie delivered a truly beautiful and efficiently designed kitchen that is sympathetic to the period of the house and is now the showpiece of our home. She is attentive, knowledgeable, creative and a real pleasure to work with. We would use her design services again in a heartbeat!
- Deb & George McEvenue, Stratford ON
Our home is an 1860 Regency Cottage and the kitchen space we had to work with was reasonably small with higher ceilings, a large low window, and uneven walls. Debbie designed a kitchen that surpassed our expectations and truly maximized the usable space, and fit beautifully with the style of our home. Her 'taste' and 'eye' for things is remarkable and her responsiveness is the best we've seen which allowed the project to progress seamlessly. We give Debbie our highest possible recommendation, a family member of ours has already hired Debbie as they heard us speak so highly of her.
- Stephanie & Doug Roth, Stratford ON
Debbie was a pleasure to work with on our home renovation project! Right from the beginning she brought forward ideas and suggestions that we hadn't thought of, and approached her work with a keen eye for detail. She was very patient and understanding of our questions, and often took extra time to provide clarification on important project decisions. She was also very supportive in bringing in the right other parties that were needed to keep moving the project along, and worked very collaboratively with different work people.
Our kitchen has turned out beautifully. She took all my scratch drawings and created a design that was both functional and stylish. We worked through many options and variations of the plan to find the one that would best suit our needs, and Debbie would happily rework diagrams until it was just right. It is a space that we are so proud of!
Debbie also brought a very positive, and fun demeanor to every meeting or phone call. She was always completely honest with us and tried to give up as many options as possible. This was very refreshing and so appreciated.
Thank you Debbie for all the hard work and dedication to the project, we would be happy to refer you to future clients!

Debbie designed large built in wall cabinets / shelves for both sides of a fireplace. Our ceilings are quite high and we worried about scale and proportion but her drawings (and the finished product) fit the room perfectly. Debbie took extra care to ensure that mouldings and door panels etc were complimentary to those in the rest of our open concept main floor.
Debbie handled everything from concept to finished product including consultations and inspections with her cabinet maker. And if this person's skill is any indication, Debbie works with real professionals.
We were extremely pleased with the entire end to end process in working with Debbie Hammer Designs. And we love our new cabinets / shelves!
