What Client's Are saying:

K. Noftsger - Clive

We have worked with Peggy on two kitchen remodel projects and also a dining room cabinet project.  I wouldn't work with anyone else.  Her product knowledge is amazing but more importantly she knows you have to live in the space so thinks through practical applications and solutions to best fit your needs.  She also has great taste in design and her showroom allows you to try out various samples in your home setting.  Also at the job site, she will meet with your contractor on several occasions to ensure they are all on the same page.  I would highly recommend her for any cabinet project.  

D. Whipple - Windsor Heights

Peggy is the greatest.  She is a good listener, pays attention to detail, provides honest suggestions for improvement or options and is and was always available for questions, answers and if not available at the moment returned calls quickly.  Her attention for detail and her honesty are great.  She gave you a honest date for delivery.  Our project turned out better then we ever dreamed of and everyone who has come to our house have the same comment "Your kitchen is like something you see in a magazine."  Thanks Peggy, you're the greatest.  We recommend Peggy and Cabinets by Design to everyone.  We love our new kitchen and over joyed we used Peggy and Cabinets by Design.

S. Smith - Bondurant

Peggy is very easy to work with, she has a creative mindset that is above all others.  Peggy got to know our personalities and delivered a product that was absolutely perfect.  From the time we started working with Peggy, she had quick turnaround times along with unique ideas you don't find often.  Peggy is detail oriented and didn't miss a thing.  She takes great notes and delivers on time.  We have again hired Peggy for another job already.  From the time she measures the area of construction and delivers a first drawing or draft of ideas is beyond impressive.  

T. Harrington - Jefferson

Peggy was with us from day 1, and this was a big project.  She presented a conceptual layout which reflected all of the input we provided.  My recollection is that we provided her with a wish list many pages long, with a stack of magazine articles in tow.  Having said that, we nonetheless went thru several design iterations, and she never lost the enthusiasm for the project without regard to the various changes.  She never lost focus on meeting our desires.  During construction - she is the gold standard for attentive service.  We had several QA issues with one of the cabinets and one of the countertops, and these were significant issues, and she delivered.  All issues were resolved immediately, to our satisfaction.  Full disclosure: I make my living managing electrical utility projects, big projects.  To that, I can assure you that Peggy has demonstrated the ability to effectively deal with contractors - to the owner's satisfaction.  I recommend her to anyone reading this.

A. Van Meter - Des Moines

Peggy Triggs is a consummate professional.  She listened to my ideas, she advised me, she knew her products and worked harmoniously with her vendors.  She met all of my expectations.  The result - I have the beautifully designed and functional kitchen and dining room that I wanted down to the last detail.

C. Rivas - Altoona

We could not be ANY happier with all of the cabinets in our home.  Peggy was amazing to work with and went above and beyond to make sure we were completely satisfied with everything.  We would highly recommend using Cabinets by Design.

Tech Builder's

I have worked with Peggy on many projects and she has always done an outstanding job.  Over my years as a contractor I have interacted with many cabinet designers from many companies and there are two things that have always stood out with Peggy: 1) her ability to listen to what her customers want and produce options based on that (many other designers I've worked with seem to listen but then come up with something completely off base), and 2) her ability to come up with very creative ideas for both standard and non-standard spaces.  Peggy always produces a complete and accurate plan, is very honest in her opinions and stands behind her work and products, if issues do arise - that is why she is working on my personal home right now.  Peggy and Cabinets by Design are my first recommendation whenever asked.
