Hello, my name is Leslie Weldon and I have been designing kitchens and baths for the last thirty years in the Puget Sound and surrounding areas. I can't believe where the time has gone but it has been a fascinating adventure.
I remember when the kitchen was in the back of the house, no view and certainly no interaction with other people. I watched as the Great Room concept took hold so the families and friends could enjoy each others company as they created and ate meals together. Have you looked at older homes lately and noticed bathrooms were merely functional and pretty small at that. Now bathrooms are places to enjoy downtime, to pamper yourself and relax and grab a quiet moment.
I realized shortly after graduating from design school that I enjoyed space planning and designing rooms that had functional requirements. It is a challenge to meet all the needs of a client and still create a beautiful and personal space. Kitchens and baths require a lot of technical expertise and an ability to keep up with changing styles and trends.
It is my goal as a designer to not only create a space that functions in a way that supports you but also realises your dreams visually. I want you to walk into your kitchen and bath and feel yourself, your point of view and aesthetic. That is my job, not to give you a room I designed but a room that reflects YOU.
I have had an interesting career and have worked at and designed some of the nicest showrooms in the area, including Clive Christian and Eastside Kitchen and Bath. I enjoy the relationship that develops with clients and the problem solving journey we take together. I earned my CKD, Certified Kitchen Designer, in 1994 as a commitment to the industry and the people I serve. I have also been lucky enough to have many projects published in shelter magazines and books.
I look forward to talking to you and helping you move forward on a project that reflects your values and vision.
