Melina was recommended to us by our contractor. What fabulous luck for us! As other reviewers have noted, she brings a wonderfully creative intelligence to her work, along with a cheerful and can-do attitude. She listens deeply and then draws on her deep knowledge of design and materials to create a proposal that honors the spirit (and the budget!) of the home owner. She's responds promptly and is fluent in any comms approach (phone, email, texting, google docs etc). Equally important: She produces absolutely detailed drawings that ensured that everyone -- from, to the contractor, to the suppliers (cabinets etc) -- knew exactly what they needed to do. Not many people can say this - but our kitchen renovation came in absolutely on time and on budget! And Melina played a pivotal role in making that happen. Thank you, Melina! It was a delight to work with you!Read More

Melina is WONDERFUL! She helped us with our kitchen remodel from beginning to end and no doubt made the process 100 times less stressful than it would have been. She listened to what we wanted but also had great suggestions for us to consider (which were usually on point)! She is meticulously detail oriented, extremely responsive, and just a lovely person to work with. She handled all the issues that came up with our project, and really went to bat for us when needed. Given the supply chain issues that have plagued us through COVID, we would probably still be sitting in a half finished kitchen if it weren’t for her. Melina is worth her weight in gold, and I can honestly say without hesitation that the best decision we made for our kitchen remodel was hiring her. We have recommended her to several friends and will call her again for any future projects!Read More

Melina is professional, talented and an absolute joy to work with. She drafted beautiful design options for us to choose from that were meticulously thought out and were based on our ideas. She guided us through all the decisions along the way, providing her expertise based on her years of experience. She is a well connected in the community with vendors as well as the contractor/subcontractors who worked on our project. She scheduled time for me to meet her at the various providers such as choosing granite, stone, tile, lighting, appliances, cabinetry and the associated plumbing fixtures and hardware. This proved to be invaluable as the options to chose from can be overwhelming. She gently guides you through these decisions, always with a focus on your specific style ideas. I could not be happier with the time we spent and the amazing outcome of our newly updated kitchen! Thank you Melina!! You are the best!Read More

Melina and I have successfully worked together on several high-end projects. From start to finish our communication has remained positive. Her attention to detail makes it easier to work towards common goals and happy customers. We appreciate Melina giving Atherton Appliance & Kitchens the opportunity to serve her and her clients. We look forward to our future projects and to a positive, long-lasting relationship.Read More

Melina guided us through an entire house remodel from start to finish - from architectural design, through the town review and approval process, obtaining contractor bids, construction project management, to interior design. She was our partner in every way. She listened to our needs, respected our budgetary constraints and developed an incredible design to meet them from both a space planning as well as finish perspective. She has incredible vision and is so very talented. We had such an amazing experience with her that she has become a dear friend. She was so dedicated to our project that she made herself available to be on site every day during the last two weeks of construction to ensure things progressed smoothly. We recommend Melina to anyone who is about to embark upon a remodel project, from a kitchen or bathroom to an entire house.Read More
