  • I have worked with CKS Design Studio for over 15 years and have had nothing but positive experiences. CKS has consistently been able to take my designs for kitchens, bathroom vanities, family room cabinetry, butler pantries, mudrooms, newel posts, etc. and turn them into finely crafted, custom products. The work that CKS Design Studio produces is high quality, completed on time, and stays within budget. The CKS team is always professional and a pleasure to work with!

  • CKS completed our kitchen and dining room remodel in our older historic home. We knew the look we wanted but weren't sure how to turn our ideas into a design. Zack listened to our ideas and then created a great design that achieved exactly what we were looking for. When it came time for the project build, construction was smoother than expected. Chuck always kept a clean worksite and were very respectful of our home. He had great transparency and kept us in the loop at every stage. The final product was quality work with careful attention to fine detail. Simply beautiful! We will enjoy our kitchen and dining area for years to come.

  • CKS Design Studio modified our kitchen to create more functional space of dead areas in our kitchen. We worked with CKS to come up with a plan to add-on cabinets. CKS transformed the space with a careful attention to detail by seamlessly matching the previous paint and kitchen details. They were on top of the project to make sure it all came together under the deadline we had set. This project had very little impact on our lives. We would work with CKS Design Studio again and again!

  • Working with CKS Design Studio has been a dream! When it came time to renovate our Durham home I felt completely overwhelmed so I turned to CKS for help. Not only did Zack and his team relieve my stress and tackle the job, they also remained patient, honest, enthusiastic, attentive, organized, and creative throughout the entire process. They listened to my ideas and the vision I had for my kitchen and bathroom, created design plans, and then executed both projects in a timely manner with a careful attention to detail. We couldn't be happier with the finished project!

  • CKS helped me by designing not only a beautiful, but a very functional kitchen and dining space! We were pleased with all the steps of the process, from design to installation. They paid great attention to detail and the results were amazing!
