About Us

Mutually Enriching Lives & Homes

We consider ourselves very lucky to work with amazing clients that have grand design dreams. And we’re beyond appreciative that we get live out our passion day by day, project by project.

We never view our work as a burden but rather the birth of a new concept, a fresh challenge and a welcomed relationship. At the end of each kitchen redesign, bathroom remodel or whole home transformation, we’re as transformed as the homes we’ve worked on.

We vow to guide you through the renovation journey so that you can actually enjoy the process, and we promise to leave you with a functional, beautiful and healthy space that works for you and your family.

At William Standen™, we’re always looking forward to helping you achieve your next interior dream.
