About Rhonda Knoche, CMKBD

ROOTS... Raised in the Midwest in the kitchen-centric home my mom designed was centered around her catering business and our lifestyle. It was great training ground for a work ethic and bucking home plan norms of the time, space use and aesthetics. Now, I seek out my clients’ roots, lifestyle and space use with a unique process and set of questions. EDUCATION... After two design degrees, I added kitchen and bath certifications recognizing the specialty field that it was and also the importance of a specialist for aging in place. I believe that education isn’t about things learned, it’s about life itself. To that end, I earned the inaugural NKBA Professional Of The Year Award, promoting continuing education. EXPERIENCE...25 years with a large design/build firm provides me with a skill set rare for most designers. Now, with my own business, I can offer design only, just a few hours, or full service – completely tailored to my client’s needs. Knowing how a project’s built, budgeted, relationships with local tradespeople and showrooms, solutions are not only creative, they’re grounded in reality. DESIGN PHILOSOPHIES...Everyone deserves good design. Every home. Every budget. Merge past + future (experience + eye on the future trending) = best combo for clients, design and life itself. My M.O. is Personality Design and why my projects don’t look alike. They’re reflections of my clients, not me. Don’t run with cookie cutters or with the herd. Especially not both at the same time. Trends are great things to know but terrible things to follow (at least the micro ones). A good plan costs the same as a bad plan. Usually less. The soul of a home is in the kitchen.
