Testimonials

I recommend Brenda to anyone going though the building or interior design process without reservation. She consistently did more than we expected of her and her building and design experience provided us with invaluable expertise. Our only regret was that we did not get her involved earlier.
Dr. S., Kingwood, Texas

Brenda, Thank you for an outstanding project. You were patient, thorough, in control, and I could not have done this without you.
Ann R., Houston, Texas

Her (Brenda's) abilities in floor plan design are exceptional.
J. P., Montgomery, Texas

I have found Brenda to be congenial, hardworking, and totally honest. I recommend Ms. Krenek without reservation.
Paul C., Las Vegas, Nevada

I want to thank you and your team for all the hard work and dedication to my “project” this year. I was just looking at the “before” pictures today, and this place has REALLY come a long way. Hard to believe. And it looks so much better than I ever hoped or dreamed it would. So, hats off to you, Brenda Krenek! You rocked it!! Awesome job!
M.T., Houston, Texas

We have used BK Design Associates twice now for some remodeling and updates and their work is quality, on time, within budget, and very accommodating to the homeowner's time as well. Brenda definitely helped solve some design issues I was having trouble resolving in our 1973 townhome. I am sure we will again use this firm for a few more things that need updating, as their bids come in under other remodelers we have contacted.

Remodeling In Stock Options

IN STOCK OPTIONS: We have in-stock options for everything to implement your interior design plan immediately, from tile and carpet to furniture and light fixtures. If you are ready to start your remodeling project tomorrow, so are we. Custom all-wood cherry or maple cabinets can be ready to install in 3 to 4 weeks. If we cannot find your furniture in stock, some American made custom order quality furniture arrives within 4 to 6 weeks of ordering. If anything we select is on back order, you will be notified immediately so we can reselect something more accessible. By using BK Design Associates you get the most for your money since we do not have overhead like a big box store or discount furniture store. And we never do cookie cutter designs so you will not have the same kitchen or bedroom as your neighbor. Do not be intimidated to use an interior designer for the first time. We love newbies and promise to be gentle. Do you trust your most valued investment, your home, to inexperienced sales persons in a big box store or a slick furniture salesperson who was selling cars last week? Or would you rather put your home in the hands of an experienced interior designer who is happy and willing to work with you to whatever extent necessary to make your home all that it can be.

We accept all credit cards for your convenience via Square.

FAQ's

 Will I have a say in what my project will look like?
Of course you will. Our job, as interior designers, is to discover what you like and dislike and integrate the things you like into the design plan and discard the things you do not like. And we do not try to impose our tastes upon you. This is your project not ours. Ultimately you are the one who must be happy with the results.

 Why do I need an interior designer?
As interior designers, it is our business to stay current with new products so we can introduce those products to you, our clients. You may see a product but do not know where to find the product. An interior designer will help with that. Or you see an extremely expensive product and fall in love with it. An interior designer might have a comparable, less expensive alternative. That saves you money. In the end, our experience, in addition to the design tools we use could save you time and costly mistakes.

 Why not use a retail furniture store?
We will not try to sell you furniture that does not fit into your space. After all, a furniture salesman's job is to sell you as much furniture possible, whether you need it or not. One of our first tasks for your project is to draw a floor plan with furniture and insure all furniture will fit in your space. This is called space planning. Our designers at BK Design Associates are expert space planners. The best advertising we can do is complete an interior design project successfully to show off to your friends and family.

 Can't I just use a home improvement store for my remodeling project?
We don't recommend that. First we are expertly trained, with years of experience in all aspects of interior design including code and ergonomic requirements. Second we will not be specifying products from only one store. We have the entire trade to choose from and will select quality products that best suit your needs and budget. Third, your design is our vision too. We see to it that the results are everything you expected by being onsite as the main contractor as the work is being done.

 How will you help me visualize the finished product?
In addition to drawing plans, we also can draw renderings of your space. Renderings are typically 2 dimensional pictures that represent a 3d view. Renderings can either be black and white line drawings or with colors and can be produced by the computer or hand drawn.

 Why do you need a budget number from me? I'm not comfortable giving you that.
Having a number gives us a starting place when selecting products. It saves us both time. And in the end you will be happier with our work if we stay within your budget.

 I'm not wealthy. How can I afford an interior designer?
Everyone is on a budget, just to different degrees. And excellent design is for everyone at every price point. Most of our clients are not wealthy. We are experts at working a budget. We also know the best ways to invest your hard-earned money to get the biggest impact in the design. And in the end, who knows! We might even save you money.

 Can you do my project for $1000 like on TV?
Most of the $1000 design shows are primarily painting projects and the labor is not factored into the cost. We will give you fair estimates that include materials, labor, furniture, fixtures, and equipment that will give you the results you want.

 Will you work with what I already have?
Of course. Sustainable design is a big catch phrase in our industry these days. That means we do not throw out things that are perfectly good particularly if it is something you love. It is important to our environment to make use of what we already have. If we cannot use what we have, we need to recycle. Used or vintage furniture is a great way to recycle. Vintage can also be a great bargain.

 Vintage? I do not want someone elses used stuff in my house.
That is where our expertise comes into play. We can take an old sofa or chair and make it look brand new again with new fabric, foam, and springs. Older upholstered furniture frames are usually much better quality at a fraction of the cost of comparable new upholstery.

 Will you work with me on a "pay as we go" basis?
Absolutely! We are happy to develop a design plan and implement it over an extended time period.

 I just want drapes. Can you help me with that?
Of course. Anything having to do with interior fashion is our niche. We are even happy to do just wood blinds or shutters if that is what you want. For merchandise like wood blinds and shutters there usually is no designer fee.

 What is your fee?
We structure our design fees to your unique project. We prefer to work on a fee basis. But we will work hourly if you prefer. Merchandise prices are presented to you in a separate contract from our design fee. Our mark up is calculated on a sliding scale. The more you spend, the more you save.

 What is your design style?
We are experienced in all styles. Our portfolio includes ultra modern to uber traditional and all styles in-between. An experienced interior designer should be versatile enough to do all styles, not just one. There are designers with a "signature" style. However you will pay dearly for their signature, which is fine as long as it is in your budget.

 What brands do you sell?
We can usually get any brand you are interested in with most being discounted significantly to you everyday. Some of our favorite better known brands are American Leather, Bassett, Kravet, Robert Allen, Hickory Chair, Stanley, Hickory White, American Drew, Bernhardt, Henredon, Hekman, Lexington, Lane, Marge Carson, Saloom, Sherrill, Swaim, Della Robbia, Acerbis, Johnston Casuals, Thayer Coggin, Lazar, Brown Jordan, and Tropitone, to name just a few. There are really too many to name from furniture, to rugs, to accessories. Additionally we can offer you discounts from retail stores such as Pottery Barn, Williams Sonoma Home, West Elm, Pier One, and Restoration Hardware. Stop paying full retail price or stores fabricated sales prices and call BK Design Associates instead.
