" What can I say, Joel was more than helpful throughout the whole of our bathroom project, with great designs to top it all off! We wanted a minimal style, utilising natural materials, the design we received back was exactly what we wanted (minus a few minimal changes). The bathroom project started just before the COVID-19 lockdown and we weren't sure how this would impact our project. Joel was very responsive, answering any questions we had and kept us in the loop with all developments of the project. Nothing seemed to be too much, so it put us at ease knowing the project was being handled with care during such uncertain circumstances. Once the project was able to restart Joel and his team committed to completing the bathroom efficiently. As first time homeowners this was a BIG project for us and Joel was always respectful of that, knowing our budget. The main thing is that he always came in with an enthusiastic approach to everything which made us both even more excited to see the final result of the bathroom. We would highly recommend Joel LaRosa Design as he made our bathroom dreams a reality….. now we can’t wait to start our next project with him. The kitchen! ”.

R & T from Clarendon Park.

" Joel designed our dream contemporary kitchen, utility room & downstairs toilet in our new extension. Having Joel to design these areas was a dream! His knowledge was invaluable, he was always ready with a solution if we hit a problem or made a change. Unfortunately COVID-19 impacted on the build and there was a delay on receiving everything including Joel’s items. It was very stressful but Joel was amazing, he communicated with us on a regular basis and reassured us even though it was probably a very worrying time for himself. Every meeting was a pleasure, he was never late and was never in a rush to leave. Nothing was too much trouble, he went above and beyond on everything. The quality of his products are exceptional! We would wholeheartedly recommend Joel! ”.

C & J from Whitestone.

" We've recently extended our home to create a large family living space. The building process was full on, with many decisions to make every day, so working with a kitchen designer has taken a lot of stress away. There is so much choice of styles, colours, materials, so starting with a blank canvas can be daunting. Joel worked with us to create a functional space that matched our design style and added a wow factor to our home. Joel suggested solutions we wouldn't have thought about and accommodated our last changes to the design. Joel went above and beyond by also assisting with detailed plans for electrics, plumbing etc. and has been on hand to liaise with our builders, heating engineers, electrician and tiler throughout the entire planning and delivery process - you won't get this level of service from other kitchen suppliers. We're delighted with the end result, quality of materials and the installation process. Overall Joel is a great person to work with and made a daunting project fun and exciting. ”.

" We are beyond happy with the kitchen Joel has designed and installed for us. The level of both detail and craftsmanship is superb. We wanted a unique and design led kitchen that was both affordable, but also had the "WOW" factor and Joel did not disappoint us on either of these aspects. His customer service is truly outstanding, nothing is too much for him and he goes above and beyond to ensure every single detail is perfect. Our kitchen is now the absolute hub of our home and it wouldn't have been possible without him! ”.

" Wow! What can i say?! A real breath of fresh air and a beautiful kitchen to boot! Joel had so many wonderful ideas and together, through discussion, we whittled it down to just two. He generated a 3D computer model and sent them to us for our decision, both designs were beautiful! We made very few tweaks, just the colour on the wall and radiator and the position of the wine rack (very important!). The actual project was so stress free and the project diary was kept to, ensuring that nothing overran. I have a terminal illness and we were concerned about the stress of having no kitchen for 3 weeks would have on my health but we shouldn't have worried at all! The whole project went like a dream. The team were friendly and helpful, even making themselves scarce for half an hour when my nurses came to attend to me, despite this meaning they would have to work later to make up for this. They were amazing. Joel made sure he was on site often, checking with us that we were happy at every stage. The result is just amazing! We've gone from a horrid dingy 70s kitchen to a sleek modern design that I am so proud of. I highly recommend Joel LaRosa Designs, you get the best service I have ever received. ”.

" Joel was a great help in evolving our design ideas and vision for a new kitchen-cum-extension project - an honest and easy to deal with professional who clearly knows and loves what he does. ”.

J + E from Clarendon Park.

" We used Joel for our new kitchen and couldn't have been more impressed with the quality of his service! He went above and beyond to help us get the kitchen we wanted within our budget, and was always on hand to help us with any queries we may have or to offer some expert advice. We couldn't be happier with the finished product and the level of service we received ”.

R + B from Leicester.

" Joel created a kitchen design/plan for us as we were struggling to find a good layout for our new home. Not only did he come up with some great ideas for layout, but his 3D plans were detailed and allowed us to visualise the space much more easily. He was happy to tweak things and make changes where we asked and made some great suggestions. I would definitely recommend Joel's design service! ”.

" Joel has helped us transform our new house into a home! We’ve always wanted a space that we can enjoy together, but we previously had a separate kitchen, dining room and living room. Joel really listens to his clients, and figured out what we needed the most. With Joel’s design we have been able to open the rooms up into a liveable open plan space that our family can really enjoy! We will no longer be stood in the kitchen cooking alone! We have a social hub where we feel able to entertain others without bumping into walls and doors. From the first meeting about our ideas, to agreeing the final design and implementing it has been a joy to work with Joel. Always on time, exactly on time! Which I don’t think I’ve experienced from ANY other person that’s worked on the house! His bubbly personality brings warmth to your homes! Joel has utilised the space to give us such a tremendous amount of storage, even a corner cupboard which is the most accessible one I’ve ever seen! Our corner cupboard doesn’t need to store items we don’t need much because we can’t access them… We can see and reach everything in there because of the way the door opens! It’s these little touches that make a massive difference. We opted for an induction hob, as Joel recommended it, I was apprehensive at first but in actual fact it's worked in my favour! My old pans didn’t work on it… so it was a good excuse to get new ones! Joel has been able to recommend products and appliances through the process, and even found the tiles I was desperate to have but were too expensive from the supplies I found. Joel researched them and found them at an affordable cost for us! Our kitchen looks AMAZING! It’s the first time we’ve been able to decide what works for us, so Joel’s design works perfectly in the space. I can’t wait to work with Joel again on our bathroom, as I am certain he will turn it into a fabulous space too! ”.

C + E from Quorn.

" Joel has been an absolute pleasure to work with from the start to finish of this project. We began with a few initial meetings of minds to get the initial designs done. After having walls removed and doors blocked in we saw the space in a different light and Joel was more than happy to work with us to amend the initial ideas to fit the new space. Nothing was too much for Joel and he would be on hand with any questions/thoughts and ideas we had. I decided that I would like to install the kitchen myself and this was no issue with Joel at all. In fact Joel was always happy to take my calls when I got stuck and he had the answers to every question I had along the way (which were quite a few having never fitted a kitchen before). In summary Joel is a fantastic designer who is always bending over backwards to make the client (myself, wife, son and dog) happy. We have already spoken with Joel about the future projects and would recommend him to any of our friends and family. ”.
