Donnie has completed two major projects for us in our home. His work is topnotch and his professionalism kicks in the moment he starts. It is refreshing to find someone in the trades who is so reliable, thorough, and also creative.
My husband and I were introduced to Don, the owner, when he remodeled our neighbor's bathroom and guest bedroom. We were so impressed with his work that we hired him to paint our duplex when we were ready to put it on the market. The color he chose made the duplex look so nice. We also hired donchris designs for several projects for the Highland Park home we purchased. They remodeled two of our bathrooms, installed a kitchen island, resurfaced the fireplace, installed screen doors, carpeted in the master bedroom, and installed recess lighting. He did such a wonderful job!
conscientious & meticulous
The "designs" part of donchris designs is invaluable to us.
My husband and I are not very creative when it comes to designing our renovations. We basically told Don what we generally like (colors, styles, shapes) and he designed the bathroom, fireplace, kitchen, etc. based on our feedback. Then he brought samples for us so we can visualize how the finish product will look like. We went with all his suggestions and were very pleased with the result. It was nicer then we could have imagined. At all times, Don was meticulous, professional and very knowledgeable. Most of all, we can tell feel that he genuinely cares.
..."I recommend donchris designs without hesitation."
We were so pleased with donchris designs that we recommended them to my sister and brother-in-law a year ago when they were looking to remodel their bathrooms. Since then, donchris designs remodeled three of their bathrooms and recently finished their basement. My family and I wholeheartedly recommend donchris designs.
professional & reliable
My wife and I have been using Don for various home improvement projects over the last few years. He's a conscientious and meticulous worker -- When have you last seen those qualities in a contractor!? -- who stands behind his work. He's also flexible with his work hours which comes in handy for two busy professionals with limited availability. In fact, he even has a key to our home just in case we can't make OUR appointment with HIM!
Donnie of donchris designs did some work on our home in Chicago to prepare it for sale two years ago. He also worked on our Wisconsin home. Some of these projects included painting, woodwork, re-building a screened porch, and refinishing a large front porch. In all cases he was meticulous, professional, reliable, and skilled enough to come up with his own creative solutions. We are in the process of purchasing a multi-unit building in Chicago, and because we know Don is so versatile in a wide range of rehabbing and remodeling projects, we feel comfortable enough to take on a bargain fixer-upper. Choosing donchris designs is a no brainer.
Donny renovated my kitchen and bathroom. He did a wonderful job. He was very honest in his opinions and his recommendations. I am so happy with how my bathroom and kitchen came out. He is very talented and I strongly recommend him for any kind of work.
