About the Designer: Jim Martin is an independent kitchen and bath designer based in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. Jim’s approach as a kitchen and bath designer comes from a career of hands on experience. The skills and knowledge he’s accumulated along the way give him a unique perspective and the expertise to produce great designs and manage projects successfully.
About Jim Martin Design: In 2014, after 13 years working in a design/sales role, Jim started his own company as an independent designer focusing on residential kitchen and bath remodeling. Jim Martin Design serves the client as both the designer and project manager. Unlike many other design/build firms Jim Martin Design has no obligation to particular manufacturers which allows for open collaboration with multiple tradespeople, vendors and designers to better serve the varied styles and needs each project deserves.
A Tip from Jim: “It’s important to consider the significance of how negative space is used. When used appropriately it creates breathing room and helps to accentuate the focal points of your design. When designing, it’s easy to think about what you are putting in, but it’s equally important to think about what you are not putting in.”
