Client Testimonials

design-testimonialWe made the wise decision to engage Capitol Design to remodel and upgrade the kitchen of our newly purchased home in Lakeway, Texas. We loved our new home, but the kitchen seemed dark and dated compared to this otherwise beautiful home. From the onset of the project through its completion, Joe Currie provided us with the vision and tasteful design ideas which resulted in a beautiful new layout that is open and vibrant. Joe and his team of professional contractors were a pleasure to work with and we could not be more pleased with the results. -- Suzie, Lakeway, TX

design-testimonialI would highly recommend Capitol Design and I can’t say enough great things about Joe and his crew. The professionalism, guidance and transparency really made this job as smooth as possible. Not to mention that Joe and his crew are simply a delight to work with -- so kind, so thorough, and so focused on excellent results.

Things will go wrong with a remodel of this size and scope -- materials will be late, contractors will be unavailable, people change what they want mid-stream, the schedule is going to shift... but Joe and his crew moved heaven and earth to finish our project (on a very aggressive schedule) before we had our friends coming into town. They are truly fantastic! -- Tiffany, Lakeway, TX

Joe designed our master bathroom as our home was 20 years old and needed to be updated. His design was very complex as we moved walls and completely changed the layout. What set him aside from others was the fact that he stayed very involved and active in the entire process. He helped us select all fixtures, cabinets, tile, stonework as well as helped us pick the final contractor and was in the middle of the whole process from design to completion. We could not be happier with the end result and credit Joe in large part for the success. Based on this project we will most certainly use him as we remodel the rest of our home. -- Don, Austin, TX

We have had the pleasure to become recently acquainted with Joe Currie. Our family hired him to layout and design our 38th Street project. Joe is the consummate professional. He has communicated very well with us and has respected our time and wishes concerning the critical initial phase of this project. Joe's designs are very classy and unique. Because of his experience in the field, he knows when to assert himself on a design aspect and when to relent to our desires. We have also enjoyed the benefits of the technology he uses to produce amazing renderings to see if we like the ideas that are being suggested. In summary, Mr. Currie is a keeper! -- Jason Grote, I Buy Austin Houses, Austin, TX

Capitol Design just finished a complete renovation on my kitchen. Joe Currie's attention to detail helped to create a kitchen that is both beautiful and functional. His patient and friendly demeanor made him a joy to work with. Everyone who comes into my new space just says, Wow!. And that's why you hire Joe Currie of Capitol Design! -- 2Boys2Girls2Dogs, Austin, TX

design-testimonial

I first approached Joe about designing a pulpit and communion table for our new campus which we are building in North Austin. I wanted pieces which were uniquely Austin, but were also reverent and relevant to our faith. His unusual tripod pulpit design and the graceful, contemporary curves of the communion table crafted from native mesquite wood and limestone perfectly blended those elements resulting in purposeful yet artful pieces.Our church design committee asked Joe to consult with us on various architectural details in the project. His expertise aided us substantially in the completion of the baptistry, foyer and church offices. Particularly, his recommendation of a two-level ceiling with floating soffit helped us regain functioning windows in our soaring foyer. We have been pleased with Joe's work and would highly recommend him for your project. -- Rev. Rodney Shaw, Sr. Pastor, New Life Church of Austin

When I first saw Joe's portfolio I almost cried. Finally, here was somebody that understood what I wanted to do. -- Monica, Alexandria, VA

design-testimonial

We have worked as the general contractor under Joe Currie. Joe has a light hearted professional ambiance that brings flair and resolve to his kitchen and bath designs. Most designers over the years give you their work, and leave the details to be figured out later. Joe aided our engineering efforts with creative and sound solutions to each and every design challenge, time after time. -- Gerry Gerber, St. Louis, MO

Joe, This plan is awesome! You, sir, are a wizard...we are most pleased. -- Gene, North Carolina

design-testimonial

What struck me most about Joe's work is the sheer variety in style. So many designers say they don’t have a signature look, that they create a custom look for each individual client. Well, that may be so, but let’s face it — a lot of designers have a signature look and style, no matter what they say. It's refreshing to see a designer go from something ultra modern to projects that fit a more traditional mold. -- Jennifer Sargent, DC by Design

design-testimonial

Joe Currie created exquisite blueprint/designs, detailing where everything should be placed in our kitchen renovation from the sink, fridge, cooktop, oven, dishwasher, cabinetry and counters. His attention to functionality and ascetics were perfect. He focused on each cabinet type making sure I had enough small storage and large storage while keeping the vision of the room balanced. He looked at where appliances were placed so that there was useful counter space and functionality for each. He maximized the use of the space and made my kitchen/dining area a beautiful and practical room. -- Lisa Peabody, Potomac, MD

design-testimonial

I love my new kitchen designed by Joe! It functions perfectly saving many steps. It has stayed in perfect condition with good use reflecting wise choices of materials & appliances. We love this space, our family loves it too, but the compliments we get from visitors are so outstanding! It is so much fun to see their faces! This kitchen has the wow factor everywhere you look! We could not be more pleased! Thank you Joe! -- Joni, Darnestown, MD

design-testimonial

One meeting with Joe and you have to love him. His affable personality is only overshadowed by his skill and ability to plan space and design. I first met Joe in 2006 when we both worked in the Washington, D.C. market (he in design and me in remodeling) and learned why he has been so successful in design. Having been around the industry my whole life I have come to pick out different projects from well known designers by their signature elements. With Joe his only signature is stunningly beautiful design with every project. Considering a designer for your project? At the absolute minimum, give Joe the opportunity to provide input. You won't be sorry. -- Paul Johnson, Paul Johnson Interiors

Joe has been a long time client who has an incredible business acumen and operates all aspects of his business with great professionalism. Of course, he is also a most talented designer whose projects are always a joy to professionally photograph! -- John Olson, Olson Photographic

design-testimonial

My husband and I hired Joe Currie to help us with a design for our kitchen. We are doing a complete remodel but had trouble envisioning a design that would maximize the limited space available to us, allow us to have more of a social kitchen, have good work space and flow, and be beautiful. Joe came to our home, in a short time came up with several possible ideas, and drew up detailed blue print plans of the design we chose. Working with Joe is wonderful. He is experienced, talented, and knows the building trade well. He listened to our needs and desires and these were reflected in his design. Last but not least, Joe brings a solid and comforting presence to the process, which certainly went far to keep my anxiety about our remodel to a minimum.As one can see by looking at Joe's website, he is not limited in his designing to any particular style, but does beautiful work in all styles. It is my great joy to wholeheartedly recommend Joe Currie. Thank you, Joe!! -- Karin, Silver Spring, MD
