She is honest, professional, and tough when she needs to be…

I worked with Valerie on an extensive remodel on a house I bought in the spring of 2015. I had a lot of things I wanted to do. There were structural changes, a full kitchen rebuild, two bathroom remodels, new floors, a ton of work that needed to be done outside, and I had a budget with resale in mind. I also was going to be out of state for the summer and wanted the house to be done when I got back in September.

Valerie becomes your friend in the process…

Valerie Helgeson of Design Directions helped to create a dream kitchen in my home. I discovered Valerie by searching through designers listed on the houzz website. The photos of her past projects appealed to my taste and so I contacted her. I was a bit nervous about working with someone who I found on the internet, however once I met with her the first time, I knew she’d be the perfect person for the job.

Valerie was creative yet realistic…

Valerie orchestrated a recent home renovation for us in Val Verde. We bought a home that had been in our family and while it holds sentimental attachment for us, we needed different form and function. Our project would entail reconfiguration of rooms, removing walls, and a complete aesthetic change of the interior and exterior.

I’m always inspired by her visions…

Valerie is not only a joy to work with, but she is an incredibly talented designer. I have worked with her on many projects, and I’m always inspired by her visions, and her ability to bring those to reality. Her selections of material and colors are second to none, and are always perfect for the project at hand. Valerie is one of the most talented people I know, and I highly recommend her!

The end result is a beautiful, functional kitchen of the highest quality…

Design Directions (Valerie and Keith Helgelson) designed and remodeled my new kitchen and living room and beautifully handled every aspect of it from start to finish. I had several contractors look at the space and all of the ideas were very similar to what I had at the time until Valerie looked at it. She listened to what I was trying achieve and designed a beautiful new open space. After that, they managed all of the contractors and oversight. Knowing that my free time was very limited, Valerie sent pictures of items and brought samples to me so I didn’t have to go to the individual stores. They monitored all the activity and ensured the next contractor was in line and ready to go when it was time for plumbing, electrical, inspections, etc. resulting in an on-time and on-budget completion of the project. The end result is a beautiful, functional kitchen of the highest quality along with an updated living area that blends perfectly with the kitchen space. When I get ready for the next remodel, Design Directions will definitely be my only call.

She has a great sense of style…

Valerie is so talented and handled every part of my renovation, coordinated all the timing and individuals needed to make the project flow quickly and seamlessly. She has a great sense of style and helped me choose every fixture and material to make my house look amazing, just my style, and affordable. Highly recommend her work.

Valerie made this project fun…

Valerie with Design Directions just finished a complete remodel of my master bathroom. I could not be happier with the outcome! It is so incredibly beautiful! Valerie has such an eye for great design and creating the space that you imagine. She went above and beyond what I could envision. Her knowledge and experience shined through during the remodel. And she kept me informed about what was happening which was so appreciated. I cannot wait to start another project with her. The kitchen remodel should begin soon and I am thrilled to see another fabulous room designed by Val!!

I highly recommend Design Directions…

I can’t even begin to tell you how happy I am in my new home. It’s almost unbelievable that this house is the same dark and dated one I bought less than a year ago! After looking at many of new and already remodeled homes that just didn’t fit the bill, I set my sights on buying one to remodel and make my own.

Their personal attention and creative flair are the reasons we recommend them…

Design Directions is fantastic! Valerie and Jennifer helped create a master bed and bath that we will be enjoying for years to come. Their personal attention and creative flair are the reasons we recommend them to our family and friends!

She has a great eye…

Valerie and team have been a joy to work with. She has a great eye and really listens when I tell her things I like and don’t like. We’ve been doing a project together remotely between Oklahoma and Texas and I’m very pleased with the results!

Valerie made this project fun…

Working with Valerie Helgeson was a pleasure. Renovating an entire house is daunting for the novice. However, Valerie made this project fun and as stress free as possible. I now have a beautiful and unique contemporary home which we love. I intend to work with her again, and I can’t wait. Thank you, Valerie, for my beautiful home.

“Design is so much more than making something look ‘pretty’ — it’s about conceptualizing, planning, and building a solution that achieves the desired results, and doing so in a way that makes the complex simple, the process intuitive, and the experience positive.”
