Good interior design relies on the same principles that saved your ancestors from saber tooth tigers. It caters to your primal instincts.

We recently underwent a complete kitchen remodel with the Mosaik team. Before the remodel, our kitchen was cramped and worn and was a difficult space to work in, with inadequate countertop space and cupboards. In addition, the last updates were in a style that didn’t seem to fit the rest of our older home.
Erin and Scott were a pleasure to work with. They took a look at every problem area and offered wonderful solutions. They found ways to increase not only counter and cupboard space but floor area as well, all the while taking care to be certain the new design was consistent with the age of our home. The end result was a beautiful kitchen that looks and feels spacious and is such a pleasure to work in.
We are very happy with all aspects of this remodel – the job was done on time and on budget and the workmanship top-notch. We highly recommend Mosaik for your remodeling needs.
