While planning a huge kitchen project (that included moving where the kitchen would be in the house) my husband and I consulted with Sarah. She was very knowable about kitchens. She brought up lots of things to consider that would not have occurred to us otherwise. Sarah really thinks about function as well as aesthetics, resale values and construction costs… she even told us a few feng shui tips! She’s a big picture thinker and I’m glad we had her consult on our project. I think bringing Sarah on the project SAVED us money in the long run.

Sarah helped me tremendously with some bathroom remodeling. She was always available for my questions, understood exactly what I was looking for, and knew how to get my project done quickly and correctly. She walked me through the whole process and the results are beautiful. I would very happily recommend her and will use her services again!

We are general contractors and engineers working in the high-end custom home market. We have referred Ms. Boyle to our high end clients on several occasions and the feedback is always great. We believe she is professional, creative, and diplomatic.

I have had the pleasure of knowing and working with Sarah for over 10 years.
As a hardwood flooring contractor, there are three critical areas that need to be communicated with clarity. Scope of work, cost, and time line. I am always impressed with her organization in these areas.
Sarah works hard to make sure the client and the contractor are on the same page, from color samples to final coat, making sure the details are taken care of.
It is a pleasure to work with Sarah.
Sincerely,
Jon Shoemaker

Wonderful to have worked with Boyle Design. She was very detail oriented, her vision and design worked perfectly for the space we had to work with. She was easy to contact when we had questions for her; scheduling of installation was well executed and thought out.
Boyle Designs ability to communicate and articulate to the customer about the remodel/ construction process was very impressive.

Sarah Boyle did an outstanding job for us in the design for the remodeling of our home in Pacific Grove, California. Early on, we decided to pretty much gut the 1970-built home we had purchased, and Sarah guided us smoothly through the design process, adding great technical and artistic value through the six month renovation. Her work was particularly effective in designing our new modern open-concept kitchen and the three bathrooms that we completely rebuilt. With great attention to detail, Sarah worked collaboratively with our general contractor, providing design specifications and assisting in delivery of all the project’s phases. She helped to recommend excellent suppliers for our new appliances, custom cabinetry, custom fireplace mantel and floor and wall tile–always guiding us to decisions we have been extremely pleased with. The project was completed in July of 2017, and the results have far exceed our expectations. Sarah was great to work with–a partner and friend–and we would recommend her without reservation to anyone considering a Monterey Peninsula remodel.

FIVE stars are not enough for Boyle Design. Sarah made all the difference in our bathroom remodel. She knows construction and has a good eye. She understood right away the look I wanted.
In the end, however, I’d say her most important contribution was in being a liaison between us and the contractor. She knew what we wanted and knew how to explain it to the contractor. When the contractor said it wouldn’t work, she knew how to MAKE it work.
Sarah is personable and down-to-earth. She didn’t roll her eyes when I made suggestions. She calmly looked for alternatives when my husband said something was too expensive. She is a real gem and I would use her again in a heartbeat!!!!!

We’re so happy we decided to work with BD. We paid a little more money for her design, time, expertise and choose to work with most of her contractors and are extremely happy we did. She went “above and beyond” and now have our “dream kitchen!”

Sarah made my kitchen update and remodel a breeze. With two small children and a busy schedule that is no easy feat! She assisted with selecting our flooring, countertops and backsplash, lighting, finishes, and even made great suggestions for how to refinish our existing oak cabinets on a budget. She really listened to what we wanted provided thoughtful suggestions and ideas. Sarah makes herself available for any and all questions. She provided quality referrals to contractors and other professionals. I would highly recommend her!

We had the opportunity to work together with Sarah Boyle of Boyle Design on a full kitchen remodel. We were impressed with her design acumen and professional demeanor. We shared a client who had an eclectic taste in design and required excellence in its implementation. Sarah did a great job in satisfying the client’s desire with her design and further did a great job working with us to ensure the excellence in implementation that was so critical to our client.
