We are proud and thankful for our 61 five-star reviews on Houzz.

I worked with KDP on a complete remodel of my kitchen – all new cabinets, countertops and appliances. Nancy, the owner, and her support team did a fantastic job designing a new kitchen with high quality products that are both functional and beautiful. During the entire process, the KDP team was patient, attentive and very responsive — I definitely felt like their only goal was to create I kitchen that I would love. They listened carefully to my desires and quickly got a sense of my style. They offered great design ideas and paid attention to every detail. Whenever I emailed or called with a question or concern, I heard back from them quickly. Both the cabinets and countertops were delivered exactly when expected. When the cabinets were delivered to my home, the KDP team was there to make sure that every piece arrived. Similarly, they met with my contractor shortly before installation to make sure that the contractor fully understood the installation plan. When the contractor discovered that a side panel was slightly damaged in the corner, KDP immediately ordered a replacement, and when I wanted to make some last-minute design changes, KDP was there to help me figure out how to effectuate them. Nancy, the owner, was also personally on site when the countertops were installed to make sure that process went smoothly. Overall, it was a pleasure to work with the KDP team. They were engaged, present and invested in the outcome the entire way. And the end result is a breathtaking new kitchen!


While designing a total home renovation with two additions, my contractor suggested KDP in Northbrook, Il for the kitchen and bath cabinets. When I arrived the first time, unannounced, I was warmly greeted by the owner, Nancy Jacobson, who showed me around and explained her product lines, colors and finishes, and gave me brochures to familiarize myself with what she offered before our first planned meeting. I spent many hours working with Nancy and her staff who were equally as warm, welcoming, knowledgeable and efficient as she was. The process of designing a kitchen and four baths was seamless from layout, cabinet style selection, coordinating colors and finishes including countertops, ordering, delivery and installation. Nancy was available by phone or email and was oftentimes onsite making sure everything was perfect. The house looks exactly as I had hoped and I couldn’t be happier!


Nancy Jacobson, Kitchen Design Partners was wonderful to work with designing our Kitchen renovation project. From the moment she stepped into our home she had a vision and recommendations that we are extremely happy with the final product. Her ideas, style, and product options were always well thought out, creative and presented in a very professional way. Their computer designs enabled my husband and I to visualize how the cabinet designs would look to take the stress and guesswork out of it. And, her attention to detail was extremely thorough. We love the end result!


Nancy’s attention to the smallest details makes her kitchen designs shine!! We are absolutely in love with our kitchen…It is both beautiful and extremely functional.


We have worked with KDP for over 60 houses. Nancy is a very creative designer, the lines of cabinets she uses fit all budgets and designs that we have. If a problem would arise they are there standing behind their work. We are presently working with them on 4 new houses and will continue to work with them on future houses. Thanks KDP for your great work.

It was a delight to work with Nancy Jacobson (KDP). We found Nancy to be very knowledgeable about the kitchen cabinets she sells, creative in design, meticulous with every detail of the project (design, order, delivery, installation), and responsive to our needs. She has a wonderful working relationship with Featherstone, the cabinet manufacturer we chose and was able to resolve a couple minor issues. We are thrilled with our new/remodeled kitchen and recommend highly Nancy and KDP.

Nancy is the ultimate in professionalism, a great designer, and wonderful collaborator! She and I worked together on my client’s kitchen and my client enjoyed a very easy project because of Nancy’s diligence in getting the look right. We’re now working together on another kitchen project as well as a number of bathrooms. She has an extensive knowledge of the lines she carries and utilizes that to help you find the best selections for your project. As a designer, I’m thrilled to partner with her as I know my clients will get our combined talents as well as her dedication to ensuring that everything is just right.

Nancy was great to work with. Gave us so many great ideas and was very cognizant regarding our budget. Would certainly use her again on our next project.

Professionalism, expertise and commitment was demonstrated through out our master bathroom renovation. KDP guided us through the process of selecting semi-custom cabinetry and tile. We came to KDP with the idea of wanting a spa like master bath using materials which would evoke luxury and retreat. KDP exceeded our expectations in customizing our drawers and cabinetry configuration. A unique feature having young children, was a keyed lock on our medicine cabinet for safety. We never felt rushed during our appointments and we received their full attention which made it a pleasure to work with KDP.



I have nothing but fabulous things to say about KDP and Nancy Jacobson. First, she knows her stuff, I mean really knows her stuff. Second, Nancy is very professional and very patient. Third, she will do everything she can to get you the fairest price possible. She has some of the best relationships in the marketplace so she is able to leverage that for her clients. And Nancy has excellent taste so her showroom is stocked with very nice samples from the start. Samples from different price points so you will definitely get with you need and want. We really enjoyed our experience working with Nancy and we LOVE our kitchen. Oh and we had fun all along the way…very rare in today’s competitive society.

We used Kitchen Design Partners and it was a wonderful experience designing our kitchen for our new construction home. Nancy was very patient with us while we went through various styles and design changes through our building process, and offered great suggestions and helped us perfect our selections to what ended up becoming our dream Kitchen. Nancy and her staff were always accessible, and she was very prompt in returning calls and texts. She made sure everything was delivered and installed perfectly to our satisfaction and if something wasn’t right, she made sure it was corrected promptly. Absolutely a pleasure to work with!


Nancy is very helpful and is able to provide advice on all aspects of kitchen design. Design and execution of the project was meticulously carried out. There was supervision of the project from A to Z. Ours was a quartz island countertop. We couldn’t be more pleased.


I primarily work photographing kitchens for designers. I’ve seen everything from low end to high end kitchen designs and when I get a new client, I never know what I’m going to walk into. When Nancy at KDP contacted me and we met, I was more than thrilled at the project and her attention to detail with what she produced. She is always present at the shoots which allows us both to be sure she gets what she wants out of the session. We have done multiple shoots together now, and I’m always excited to see what she’s produced next, because the photos always look great…and they can only look great if I’ve got a fabulous kitchen to work with. Thanks again Nancy!

Nancy Jacobson, owner of KDP, in Northbrook, Illinois was a pleasure to work with during our recent bathroom remodel. I brought Nancy in after I had already begun demolition and had planned out in my head what I wanted in this new space, but lacked actual plans for my builder to work from and assistance in making some design decisions. Nancy assisted me with tile selection, design and helped me make final choices. We used several different sizes of tiles and some decorative pieces as well so Nancy’s great “eye” helped to put it all together. She also assisted me in choosing a great cabinet and counter top from her well appointed showroom. She was readily available to meet with me whenever I needed her opinion and I really appreciated her great sense of style. I would highly recommend Kitchen Design Partners!

Kitchen Design Partners (KDP) did a fantastic job on our project. We used them to design our kitchen and butler’s pantry, 5 bathrooms and our laundry room. In addition, we used KDP to get cabinet fronts for several built-in cabinets in the house, including the one in our family room and our mudroom. KDP has a great selection of cabinets to choose from and are very knowledgeable about cabinet design. They were able to work within our budget and deliver an outstanding product. KDP has a great attention to detail. They really thought through the function of all our spaces and how we intended to use them. They looked at the big picture, taking into account color schemes and tile and fabric choices for each space to get a truly custom look. In the end, I feel like we got unique, magazine quality spaces and ones that function well for our family. I would highly recommend them.


We had the pleasure of working with Nancy Jacobson, owner of Kitchen Design Partners, for the design and remodeling of our kitchen. Nancy is extremely professional, creative and very knowledgeable. KDP was wonderful to work with and we could not be happier with the outcome.


It was a pleasure and delightful experience working with Nancy Jacobson (KDP). We found Nancy to, if you will, know her stuff! I felt she is extremely knowledgeable about the products she sells. Nancy is not only very professional, but is very warm and personable. She is so engaged that you get the impression that your remodel is the only project she is working on. I never ever felt she didn’t have time for our project, a total remodel of our 20 year old kitchen. Because of Nancy being meticulous with every detail, our kitchen turned out totally awesome. I wish I had another project because I enjoyed our working relationship a lot. We would highly recommend Nancy and her staff at KDP.


KDP provided a customized, professional approach to solving some difficult problems during my kitchen remodel. The owner, Nancy, was creative in developing workable ideas and resourceful in finding suitable materials for some challenging issues I encountered. She was always respectful of my time, my concerns and my ideas. Nancy was a pleasure to work with. I couldn’t be happier with the outcome!


Nancy Jacobson and her team provided outstanding design, planning and support while our kitchen project was being implemented. They were good listeners and expressed a solid understanding of our ideas regarding how we used our space so as to make strong recommendations when it came to creating our new kitchen. They even fielded calls from us while we were out shopping for hardware to discuss pros and cons of various finishes. We really appreciated those little moments of support that helped us pull it all together and give us the room we really wanted.


I had the privilege of working with Nancy and my designer on my new kitchen. We completely gutted the kitchen and removed a wall to make the space more open. I could not be happier with the results. I’ve heard the word “stunning” more than once to describe it. Nancy was a complete professional and her ideas make it possible for my kitchen to be what it is today. She was respectful of my budget. I wish I had more projects to involve her in as I would certainly hire her again.


Kitchen Design Partners designed and installed my new kitchen, powder room, and master bath. The finished products are simply perfect. Nancy first met with me at her office to decide what my needs and desires were. She was warm and inviting, and she helped me feel right at home. Nancy also visited the space (my previous kitchen and baths) prior to the initial design and again before completing the final drawings. She helped me choose the cabinet products and countertops. Prior to my finding cabinet pulls or knobs, she discussed different options of those with me also. After I had chosen tile for the backsplash and new bathroom, she helped me make sure that the cabinets and counters matched well with the chosen tiles. Everyone who has visited my new spaces has commented on their beauty and how well everything goes together. Nancy was a dream with whom to work, and I would definitely recommend her.


KDP is outstanding! We had a wonderful experience with Nancy. She walks you through the process and holds your hand from beginning to end. Impeccable taste, innovative design and a great partner! KDP has options for all taste levels and Nancy is great at helping you achieve your vision. Many thanks!
