It is with great pride that the following testimonials are displayed here.

“Thank you Joan!!!”

We loved our home and location, but our kitchen was tiny and miserable. We considered moving, that is, until Joan came over to take a look! She had been referred by a good friend who used her to design a kitchen. "Don't worry, if any one can figure it out, she will!" Since we needed to move plumbing, we also redid our master bath and bedroom, adding much needed closets. We trusted her judgement and allowed her to make all the selections. We still can't believe we're in the same space. The results are amazing. Now our home is complete! Thank you, Joan!!!

—Lori and Chris Donohue

“We love the results!”

Joan assisted us with the design of our kitchen, baths, library, and the office spaces of our new home. Although she is known for kitchen and bath design, she was instrumental in many aspects of the construction. She acted as a sounding board and gave advice on selections and design of lighting, tile, plumbing fixtures, fireplaces, millwork, and the countless decisions that are needed during our project. We love the results!

—Albert and Anya Salama

“Exceptional... Life-Changing”

My husband and I recently finished our kitchen/family room, laundry room and dining room renovation. In the onset, when we interviewed many high end designers, only Joan seemed to understand our family's wish list and design needs. My husband is an outstanding cook and Joan created a unique work space with an aesthetic that is functional, elegant and a chef's dream. From the inception to the beautiful end result, Joan's sense of design and spatial perception has been exceptional. She has given us a living space that is life changing.

—Renee and Gerald Ferrentino

“The name that kept coming back...”

My wife and I were contemplating redoing our kitchen and the downstairs of our home. We diligently researched who everyone considered the top kitchen person in the industry. The name that kept coming to us was Joan Picone. We interviewed Joan and subsequently hired her to lead the kitchen project. From the onset of the job and through the most difficult times of demolition and construction, Joan was there to answer questions and make decisions. She gave us much needed moral support! I would recommend Joan to design, build and execute the most intricate, complicated project in any one's home or company. To Joan's credit, our project closely resembles our first thoughts and wildest dreams.

—Gary and Jude Shaw

“A true professional… Highly recommended”

Joan and I have worked together on many projects. She is a true professional. She understands the designer's role and is able to collaborate to achieve perfection as envisioned by the designer and client. More importantly, the kitchens Joan designs are functional and beautiful. I would highly recommend her.

—Frank Delle Donne, Designer

“As a contractor, I can trust her”

I've worked with Joan for 18 years. She has the amazing ability to walk into a home and reconfigure the space for a new kitchen or bath. Her years of experience give her insight into a client's style and needs. She is great at helping to control budgets. As a contractor, I can trust her to be on site when I need her. She is able to work out design issues when ever they arise. For the homeowner, she is excellent at explaining things and helping with the best possible selections for the project. The end result is always exactly what the clients want: a functional and beautiful new room.

“I highly recommend her”

If you are looking for an architectural interior space planner, kitchen, bath, or cabinetry designer, Joan Picone is excellent. She has helped many of my clients over the years. She is a problem solver and has great respect from all the trade people on my job sites. That's something most people forget is important when they are hiring a designer. They must be able to communicate in order to have the design vision realized. I highly recommend her.

—Nick Mancini, General Contractor
