Our Custom Wood Countertops Blog features the industry’s most talented and innovative designers throughout the United States and abroad. This featured kitchen includes a Reclaimed Oak Counter designed by Monica Miller, CMKBD, CR of J.S. Brown & Co.
About the Designer: Monica works with her clients from the earliest conceptual stages of their project design through to the final walk through. She holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the Columbus College of Art & Design and is a Certified Master Kitchen & Bath Designer (NKBA) and a Certified Remodeler (NARI). Monica has over 25 years of experience in the residential construction industry and joined J.S. Brown & Co. in 2002 as a designer and sales consultant.
A Tip from Monica: It’s very tempting to follow trends, instead discuss your needs and budget with your designer and try to make decisions based on your personal tastes, budget, and practical issues like durability and maintenance concerns. Your home should reflect your style, not just what you see on television.
