What Our JWH Clients Are Saying

By the way, I so appreciate how prompt everyone is from JWH... It is so nice (and rare) to have someone say they will be at your home at a certain time, and then show up either early, or right on time. It is fantastic. Thank you.

~A.W., Bronxville, NY: master bath renovation

Highly recommend. Our home now has a JWH kitchen, desk (command center), mudroom and soon to be office wall unit. We are so pleased with the professionalism of the JWH staff (from design through installation) as well as the quality of the finished product.

~K.B., as posted on Google

Our heartfelt thanks to the entire JWH team for each of your contributions to this project. Its 10:30 at night and we love the island so much that we are hanging out in the kitchen rather than the couch...

It has been an absolute pleasure working with you. Its hard to believe the project is complete (sans the dining room unit which we'll get to soon). Don't start to miss us too much because before you know it we'll be starting round 2 in the family room...

Warm regards,

~C.S., Larchmont, project completed!

November 2017: "I could not have done this project successfully without JWH Designs! Jennifer's ability to show us the design in 3d views was essential. She was able to correct our architects layout and show us what it would really look like. Jennifer's year of experience is beyond any architects knowledge when it comes to kitchen and bath design."

~J.W., San Francisco CA (as posted on Houzz)

"JWH are the consummate professionals. They are highly responsive, flexible and understanding of the client's needs. Jennifer blew our mind with a design suggestion that totally changed the look of our kitchen for the better...We would recommend them to anyone."

~CS, Larchmont, NY (as posted on Houzz)

Oh my goodness ... I love this house. It's actually charming. And the outdoor shower is brilliant in function and location. But one of my favorite things you've done here is add the perfect gray color on the shingles to soften the brown and brick while highlighting the slate. Wow, Jen. It's so pretty. Thanks for showing me this exterior even if it's not what you typically do. I really appreciate all of your design input. It's not hard to imagine why you've gotten so many awards and recognition. We're grateful to have your help. Thank you!

~J.R., Lake George, NY, During design phase

Thanks again for preparing these really great options. We love how it has more space and yet still fits the mudroom. It just feels like a more open kitchen especially by the island/sink/stove/nook area. We love the flow of the square portion that covers all the appliances, bench seat and island.

Thank you SO MUCH for the amazing, thoughtful work product. We are more excited than ever.

~C.S., Larchmont, NY, during design phase

"We are thrilled with our new kitchen. From soup to nuts, it was a pleasure to work with your entire team. We love the design, cabinetry, lights--everything! We're looking forward to lots of happy times in this space. I recommend JWH to everyone I know!

Thanks for all your great efforts!"

~M.M., Rye, NY: New Kitchen

"Hi Jennifer, my architect xxxxxxxxx said that he was really impressed with your designs. He said it was clear that you thought outside the box. Best, Susan"

~S.M., during the design phase for waterfront home

"It is awesome to see 3-D images! We are really excited, the kitchen looks beautiful. Thank you for such a fast turnaround And, thank you for creating such a thoughtful, beautiful space! It is such a delight to look at your designs. The bar area is gorgeous."

~M.M., Larchmont NY (during the design phase)

"Patsy and I very much enjoyed working with JWH from start to finish. You and your staff are very professional, responsive and enjoyable to deal with. You were on time and on budget. One of the best decisions we made was to ask you to take care of all aspects of the project from design, construction and installation. You took charge and everything was done to perfection."

~M.M, Westport, CT Kitchen Renovation

"Jennifer Howard and her staff rescued my project. I interviewed 3 other highly respected Kitchen designers and Jennifer was the only one with the expertise needed, to make our kitchen functional and beautiful. The professionalism of the entire staff was incredible. Navigating in a technological world , coupled with the human touch is what separates JWH from others."

~L.P., Southport, CT

"Thanks Jenn! We couldn't be happier with the kitchen/ family room set up. Not only does it look great, but it is very functional. We truly do live in that space. We were surprised how much storage there is in such a small area.

Thanks again for all of the help you and the team provided. Chelsea and Carol were awesome throughout the process!"

~R.C., Rye NY New Home Construction

"Jen and Rob: Now that our kitchen/family room/master bathroom project is complete, I wanted to take a minute to tell you how thrilled we are with the final result and what a professional, pleasant and painless process Diana, Tom and Carol made the whole experience. They were all incredibly responsive to every detail and request and their follow through on every aspect of the project exceeded all our expectations. And Alex, Gerardo, Luis, Flash and the rest of the guys could not have been more courteous and neat on top of doing great work. You have assembled a great team and it shows not only in the final product but during every phase of the process. Thanks for everything!"

~M.U., Rye, NY

"Just completed a major Master Bathroom redesign/renovation project. JWH Design and Cabinetry acted as designer, cabinet maker, and contractor. The job was well priced, completed on time, and done with utmost care for quality and finish. JWH met/exceeded our expectations at every step of the design/renovation process and helped us transform a tired, poorly laid out bathroom into a spa like retreat complete with sauna, steam shower, free standing tub, twin vanities, and a dedicated make up vanity. We are looking forward to working with JWH again in 2016 when we renovate our kitchen."

~N.G., Rye NY

"Hi Jenn and Robbie:

Happy to hear about ********* job! We're so proud of the results of our collaboration and never hesitate to show it off!! You guys are truly talented and an absolute pleasure to work with.

XO from your biggest fan,


~J.O., Total Home Renovation Completed

"My husband and I selected JWH after interviewing several other firms. What sets JWH apart from their competitors is their genuine interest in trying something new and their willingness to work with with our (sometimes impulsive) design ideas. The entire team is warmly professional and possesses a 'can do' attitude that we very much appreciate when our 100 year old house throws a us a curve ball or two. Thank you SO much to Jen, Robbie, Diane, Tom, Carol and the rest of the wonderful team at JWH. We cannot wait to hire you for our next project."

~D.B., Larchmont, NY

"Jennifer, I feel like I am repeating myself for the 1000th time, but OMG!!!!

#1...the MBR ceiling is divine! closet is INSANE!!!

#3...K's closet is even more INSANE! Can't wait to show him.

#4...the basement will now be referred to as the "LOWER LEVEL". LOL!!! Simply gorgeous. Love the cedar closets and laundry.

You are fabulously talented!! You ALL are! Thanks so much!"

~J.O., Rye-- during the design phase...

"Jen is a miracle worker and she was able to design a beautiful, elegant kitchen that is both perfect for my busy family and supremely marketable should we decide to put our house on the market. We are thrilled! She is a genius."

~K.M., Rye, NY--full review posted on Houzz

"Jennifer Howard and her staff rescued my project. I interviewed 3 other highly respected Kitchen designers and Jennifer was the only one with the expertise needed, to make our kitchen, master bath and adjoining rooms functional and beautiful. She is extremely talented and understands the vast components of building. If more companies were run the way Jennifer Howard runs her ethical, professional, talented , business ..there would be less stress in the process of construction. JWH is the best!"

~L.S.P., Southport CT (see full review posted on

"We interviewed several contractors before engaging with JWH. But in the end, we chose JWH because we required a high level of kitchen and construction quality and strongly preferred to have a single point of contact given the scope and scale of the renovation. Finally, knowing that it would be a long multi-month project, we wanted to enjoy working with them. The JWH team was very responsive to our calls and emails and have an extremely professional and very pleasant manner about them, all the way to individual members of their construction team."

"The one place I can feel at home and in peace is in our JWH kitchen. You designed our space with care and amazing patience. You helped me navigate my way to the best use of space that we were given, I am eternally grateful."

~L.S., Southport CT, finishing new house construction

"Jennifer and the JWH team worked with us to design our beautiful new eat-in kitchen and we are thrilled with how it came out. She drew upon her well of insight to design a room that was both functional and stunning. A mother of 5 herself, she incorporated real life practicality into the design. The 3D presentation made it so easy to visualize how the kitchen would look and feel.

Their custom cabinets were solidly built with hard wood and soft closing hinges. They have already stood the test of a 4 year old swinging from one of the doors!"

~M.B., Port Chester NY (as posted on Houzz)

"Renovating a kitchen is such an overwhelming task. I knew what I liked, but also knew that I needed help designing the layout and pulling everything together. Jennifer Howard and her team at JWH were incredible to work with. From the first meeting, where I could tell that Jennifer "got" what I was looking for, to her speedy delivery of layout options, to the custom cabinetry and fine tuning all the details, I was impressed. I would definitely recommend JWH Designs to anyone looking to make their home the best it can be!"

~E.M.,Rye, NY (as posted on Houzz)

"We're thrilled with the work that JWH did at our new house! They were extremely professional, had excellent ideas & input, were responsive to all of our needs, diligent in their work, extremely reliable & accountable, and a pleasure to work with. We highly recommend them for any size project!"

~S.S., Rye NY (as posted on Houzz)

"Terrific experience with the JWH team! Fun planning, precise implementation, budget and time respectful process. High level of interaction and forward thinking by all team members. I hired JWH to renovate and design a gut kitchen project, and then upon successful completion, moved on to a bathroom renovation. I would definitely retain JWH for my next master bath, laundry and mud room project. Wonderful, creative design team that is very sensitive to your budget and timing deadlines. And very, very good taste. Everything they design is magazine picture worthy."

~H.G., Rye NY (as posted on Houzz)

"JWH helped us design our kitchen renovation, and designed and installed our kitchen cabinets, our center island and a bar for our living room. They also helped with other design details, such as paint colors for the entire house. Our cabinets are absolutely beautiful, and we could not be happier with the end product. Jennifer Howard and her team were all wonderful to work with and professional at all times. I would hire them again, and highly recommend them to anyone looking to renovate, design or do any work on their homes or office."

~P.K., Greenwich CT (as posted on Houzz)

"Jennifer Howard and her team at JWH are truly exceptional. What started out as a kitchen remodel turned into a complete first floor overhaul and the renovation of three large bathrooms when it became clear that my home was in the care of such a knowledgeable, approachable and responsive team. The designs Jen created were beautiful and clearly made to suit me and my family. The quality of the cabinetry is terrific and I am so very pleased with the outcome of my project. I could not recommend Jen and her entire team more highly. It was a true pleasure to work with them from start to finish."

~N.K. Posted on Houzz

"We were delighted with our entire JWH experience from the planning and design stages to watching our project being implemented. We began with a complete redesign of our Kitchen in mid-2012 and ended with an entirely redesigned and remodeled Master Suite, including a fabulous Master Bedroom, Master Bathroom and Dressing Room.

Jennifer and Rob Howard comprise the "perfect marriage" of design and implementation. Jennifer redesigned our Kitchen in a manner that improved the flow and our use of the entire 1st Floor of our home. The transformation of our home was nothing short of remarkable. We are extremely pleased with JWH and with the results of their design, cabinetry and construction work.

We love our home, and all of the JWH improvements have added beauty and lasting value to it. You might ask Jen to show your our before and after pictures. You are welcome to call or stop over if you would like to see JWH's work first-hand."

They helped design a thoughtful, beautiful space to meet our family's needs, and were a pleasure to work with. They deliver high quality cabinetry at a competitive price, and their installation and follow up team are outstanding."

~S.C., Old Greenwich Client Review on Houzz

"I engaged JWH Designs to design my kitchen renovation project, make the cabinets and construct my new kitchen, including removal of a supporting wall. We couldn't be happier with the entire JWH team. Jennifer did an incredible design that we loved, the cabinets are just beautiful, Bridget was great in helping to select paint colors, granite and fixtures and Rob, Diana and Tom kept the project moving at a rapid pace so that significant progress was made every week. Any and all issues were promptly addressed to our complete satisfaction. The project was completed on time and on budget. We are thrilled with the final result and have received lots of compliments on our gorgeous new kitchen. Strongly recommend this company."

~W.H., Client review on Houzz

"We couldn't be happier with our new JWH kitchen! Jen worked with us on a number of iterations, had great ideas and helped us get the most "bang for our buck" in terms of design. Her visual representations of the space were amazing and really helped us in the decision making process. Our kitchen is now our favorite room in the house!"

~K.C., Posted on

"JWH went beyond our expectations with our home expansion. They did an amazing job. The transformation of our home has made us feel like we are living in a dream. Never did we imagine that this project would go so smoothly, and be so stress-free. I would highly recommend them to all for any project."

~H.B., Rye, NY Posted on HOUZZ

"JWH provided kitchen and bath design, custom kitchen cabinetry, bathroom vanities, custom built in book cases and fireplace mantels. As well as countertops and tile designs. Everything was on time and top quality. We are tough on our kitchens and bathrooms and the cabinetry has held up beautifully. We are completely satisfied with the design and layout of the rooms. I have recommended JWH Designs to several people and will continue to do so."Darien, CT

~K.M., Darien CT Posted on Houzz

"JWH designed and provided all the cabinetry and construction process related to a complete remodel of our kitchen, mudroom, and laundry room, as well as renovating a powder room. The kitchen was completely gutted, new sub floor and hard wood floor installed, appliances selected, and finishing tables and chairs, seat cushions, artwork and rug designs procured. The construction team was efficient, professional, tidy, and courteous. The design crew was creative, inspired, and conscious of our tastes and preferrences. The entire JWH team was accessible at all times through emails and responded promptly to our questions and concerns.

The finished product more than met our expectations. Never would we have such stupendous results without the JWH insight and design." Larchmont, NY

~K.L., Larchmont NY, Featured on Houzz

"We loved working with Jen and everyone at JWH from design through installation and completion of the job. JWH designed and installed all the cabinets in our new home. Jen's enthusiasm made the whole experience fun and enjoyable for us and her dedication to the project was very tangible. She was very creative in making every space as efficient and functional as possible, while also making it stunningly beautiful. We would highly recommend working with JWH and would, without a doubt, work with them again."

~V.M., Old Greenwich, CT, Posted on Houzz

"Jennifer helped us design our kitchens and bathrooms. Yesn plural since we did a big remodel in 2010 and a small one in our new house in 2012.

Jennifer is so much fun to work with. She acts quickly, she understand the word budget, she's inventive and she's great to work with. Her professional attitude makes the client / designer relationship an effortless one. Our modern taste in European design was more an extra dimension to Jennifer than a challenge. She made it all look so easy. She designed our high gloss cabinets and beautiful Ceasarstone countertops. The glass mosaic back splashes were a huge standout in the kitchen and such a 'cherry on the cake'. We will work with her anytime, anywhere and highly recommend this truly spirited designer and crafts woman."

~M.K. Old Greenwich, CT Posted on HOUZZ

"I just HAD to share with you that my whole family was unanimous in voting that this was the best year EVER - in the history of my Christmas seasons. I can only attribute it to my new kitchen! Thank you for making the holidays so tasty."

~L.M., Rye, NY: New Kitchen Finished!


Everything is so amazing. We feel like we are in a dream. It is better then we ever hoped for. I think it will take us a few months to realize that it is our home.

I can't thank you enough! The entire process was so smooth and I honestly never stressed over anything, well except getting colors right : ). Who would ever believe that a renovation could be this painless?
