Gail C. Olsen, CKD
Owner, Secretary, Certified Kitchen Designer

"I believe that attention to the specific needs of each client and their family is paramount in creating a kitchen or bathroom remodel that is a masterpiece of form and function, but also a unique representation of their interest and lifestyle."

Gail began her career in design in 1975 and became a Certified Kitchen Designer in 1993. As a nationally renowned designer for over 35 years, Gail's projects offer a unique combination of styling and workability. In fact, her work has been repeatedly recognized. She has been the featured designer for the Design Idea Center at the National Kitchen and Bath Industry Show. The Idea Center is sponsored annually by various magazines and manufacturers and actually takes the work of a designer and builds the project for the show as an example to be viewed by other designers. The work of Gail and Charles Olsen is featured in the book, "The Walls Around Us" by David Owen which offers a humorous and informative account of home remodeling. Their work is always a result of their combined talents and is repeatedly seen in national design magazines.

In addition to being a recognized designer, Gail has been very active with the National Kitchen and Bath Association, both in the CT. chapter and nationally. She served on their Board of Directors for 8 years, ascending to the national president's position in 1996!

Spare time for Gail is spent cooking and entertaining, walking, swimming, or curled up with a good book.
