There are not many of them. I've got to say that. Any Stories?

We had one who acted like it was her house not ours, sort of. We were not spending 30 to 50 thousand like some of her clients for kitchen design. So she wasn't spending a lot of time with us giving full service.... I didn't expect a lot of time but I expected....It's late
Any comical or enlightening stories out there?

We purchased an island from her and the company she represented.

I received a ride home from a gal who had studied to be an interior designer. She said that she had prepared designs for customers. They said they weren't interested in her design. Get some other designers, do the same thing. Then, without integrity, pick and chose the ideas of the various designers and would do it for themselves.

My daughter has a degree in design. Not interior design, but I would flip if someone did this to her.

Maybe this should be dipsy customers/interior designers? More comedy/drama with this title. LOL

Trish,

You need to start a thread with that title. Perhaps you don't understand. We signed a contract with this woman. We paid this woman good money for a snobby attitude. "Oh you don't want that" was her reply to several things. In hindsight, yes we did want that. She had several attitudes that we paid money for. We were doing only one island but we were purchasing it from her. I'm sorry we dealt with her. Turns out that she wasn't a certified kitchen designer. We had better ideas than her but its too late now. I won't be fooled by the title on a person's card now. I've thought several times about complaining to management about her.

Karma does come into play. We need some bathrooms redone. Others there who were more professional will get our business if I go back there.
