“I hired Dan to renovate the kitchen in my home, built-in 1908. Going into the renovation, we knew there would be issues due to the age of the home, but whenever an issue arose, Dan helped to explain it and then fix it with very little worry or stress for me. Because of the excellent job that Dan did on the kitchen, I decided to go ahead with renovations of the two upstairs bathrooms, which were also completely gutted. My highest compliment to Dan is that he is extremely focused on the satisfaction of the customer. Every project he has completed for me has been virtually stress-free and that is due to the care and attention to detail that Dan brings to each and every job.”

“I converted my attached garage to a family room and built a separate detached garage. Hartranft Design handled EVERYTHING including the architectural services, installation of a vented fireplace, a wall of custom bookshelves, and a desk area. There were no surprises in the budget although I made changes as the process went along and Dan was able to work with me. In fact, because of his experience, he is able to make really nice suggestions in terms of what is trending and how things will work once finished. After this process, I used Hartranft Design to update my master bath (gutted down to the studs) and then my children’s bath. That’s my best recommendation – that I continue to use Dan’s company. His people are reliable, neat, and polite. I’m happy to have them work in my home.”

“My husband and I just want to thank you so much for the wonderful job you did on the countertops in our kitchen. I know it was a large and difficult job, but you attacked it with zest and enthusiasm. We know you are a hard worker and expect perfection from yourself. We are very impressed with you and your work and if we ever have any more work done in the future, we will most certainly call upon you for your help.”

—Paula and Eric, Wheaton, IL

“I was extremely pleased with the service and professionalism I received from Hartranft Design. Dan kept me up to date during the entire process and any calls I made with questions were always promptly returned. I always knew who would be in my home and what stage of the project they were working on. Once everything was gone for the evening my husband and I checked the progress. We were surprised at the cleanliness of the work area. We wanted a wonderful space for our family to enjoy that looked like an extension of the rest of our home and we are so pleased with the result. We’re really enjoying our new family room! Thank you!”

“I just wanted to take a moment to tell you how happy I am with the new kitchen remodeling you did for me. The cabinets, the beautiful ceiling molding, the floor, all of it is gorgeous. I must add that the way you did the work, how neat you were, and how you cleaned up at the end of each day were much appreciated. Finally, I want to thank you for completing the job so quickly. My neighbors are amazed that my entire kitchen was remodeled from floor to ceiling in just 5 weeks. The quality of the work, the neatness of the process, and the speed of the completion made the entire remodeling a joy. I’ll be sure to call you for any future work I need. Thanks again.”

“My wife and I express our appreciation to you for the excellent job you did in designing and installing a new kitchen for us. It is a magnificent job. We would deem it a privilege to recommend you to our friends should they develop an interest in doing a kitchen or a bathroom. Thank you!”

“My Kitchen remodel went great – from start to finish. Even before I gave Dan the job, he spent a lot of time with me upfront explaining what he would do and giving me some great ideas to think about. Once I decided to go with him, we finalized the paperwork and he gave me a schedule of events on what would happen in week one, week two, etc. Dan stayed right on target with this schedule. Dan will keep you informed at all steps of the project and is a great communicator. In terms of pricing, Dan was actually the least expensive of the quotes I received, was very understanding of budget constraints, and was willing to suggest options to stay within certain parameters. Definitely go with this guy. You will be happy.”

“We just had our kitchen redone by Hartranft Design and we could not be happier. Within seconds of meeting Dan, I knew I had made the right decision. There was no pressure from him to sell me something I didn’t need and I felt that this whole process was going to be about me and not him. That is a rare thing to find these days: someone who listens to you and then delivers what he says. He said it would take two to three weeks and the whole thing was finished in 10 days. All of his workers showed up on time and cleaned up after themselves. Dan was at my home every day. Every day I got a progress report. Our kitchen turned out better than we could have hoped for at the price we agreed upon. No hidden or extra costs. I plan to do my bathrooms next and Dan will be the only person I consider to do the job. Thanks Again.”

“We want you to know that we are absolutely delighted with the way our newly remodeled kitchen came out, thanks to you. Your expertise in planning, coordinating, and implementing the work is reflected in the finished product. Your involvement in every phase of this very complicated project is very much appreciated. The team of expert craftsmen you brought to the job was wonderful. Everybody involved, from the cabinetmakers to the tile installers, to the granite fabricators were the best in the business…the stainers, electricians, painters, and woodworkers were all highly skilled craftsmen. But most of all, we cannot say enough about your caring attitude. Whenever we had a question or a concern you were completely responsive. You were always available on the phone, and you were here whenever we needed you. We will definitely be calling Hartranft Design for our future home improvements. Thanks again for a job well done.”

—Stephanie & Joe H, Naperville, IL

“I just wanted you to know how much I love my new kitchen and wanted to thank you for all your help. From the hardwood flooring to the Omega cabinets and the beautiful Cambria Quartz countertop, I don't think that there's a better-looking kitchen around. Your input on colors and styles made the final product "mine". Also, how and where the cabinets and drawers are located throughout the kitchen has made it much more efficient and functional than what I had before. Thank you so much and please feel free to use my "before" and "after" kitchen pictures to show prospective customers what can be accomplished. Best Regards.”
