Grenadier Design Studio

We offer a series of showcase homes that are carefully selected from our curated library of finishes at our award-winning design studio. This is your most time and cost-effective option. Should you choose to go the custom selection route, we offer a world-class design experience that starts with our simple “1-2-3” approach to home design, which guides you through every step of the design process for a worry and stress-free experience.

Our talented, award-winning design team is led by award-winning designer Kathy Costa. With decades of experience, they will ensure you create a home to complement both your lifestyle and your personal style at your budget.

How do I get my dream home that perfect blend of personal style, quality, and beauty within my budget? We’re glad you asked!

The first step is to survey your personal style. The second step is to select cabinets, counter tops, and flooring, which create the usual centerpiece and design anchor for the other fixtures of your home. The final step is to select the finishing touches from lighting to plumbing fixtures to wall colors and appliances, etc. as you complete your dream home.
