Talented Kitchen & Bath Designers

Whether you’re remodeling your home or building a new one, the kitchen and bath designers at Benson Stone in Rockford, IL are here to help you every step of the way. Create the home of your dreams with our talented team by your side!

Working with a Benson Stone kitchen & bath designer

You are always welcome to spend as much time as you like in our showroom, getting ideas for your remodel project. However, when you’re ready to start planning the specifics, we invite you to schedule a meeting with one of our talented kitchen & bath designers. To get started, please call (779) 210-3447 to schedule an appointment. Please bring in photos of your current room with dimensions and floor plans, if you have them. It’s also a very good idea to bring in design inspiration photos, to give your designer an idea of the style you’re going for.

Our experienced kitchen & bath design team will walk you through the showroom and discuss everything we have to offer for cabinetry, flooring, countertops, tile, and even lighting and decor, if you’re interested. As they learn what kinds of materials and styles you like, they’ll collect samples from the showroom to create a mood board, so you can see how everything would coordinate together. Our designers are also very skilled in helping you choose materials that will fit your budget.

If you’d like them to visit your home for a consultation, we can plan that as well. Depending on the size of the project, we may require a design deposit, though that cost will be used toward the cost of materials once your order is placed. Once you decide on your materials and fixtures, your designer will draw up a total concept for you.

During your second meeting with the designer, you’ll look at their proposed floor plan, and when you’re happy with the design, they will quote a price for you. If you decide to move forward, we will collect the downpayment on the project. You are also invited to take advantage of Benson Stone’s special financing program. The designer will order your product, and when it comes in, they will arrange for installation with your contractor, or with our own in-house installation crew.

Tips from our kitchen & bath designers

  1. Come into our showroom with an idea of what you like. It will be much easier for your designer to create a concept if you’ve done a bit of research first. Collect photos of rooms and interior design styles that you love, and show them to your designer!
  2. Know your budget. This usually requires some research. Our designers specialize in working within a budget. Knowing what it is ahead of time will help them make prudent decisions for you as you go.
  3. Be prepared to communicate with your designer. Fabulous designs don’t happen overnight. It requires plenty of communication between you and your designer. If you aren’t happy, say something! The designers at Benson Stone want to make sure your project is exactly what you had in mind.

Customer Reviews★★★★★

Our designer Jessica is absolutely brilliant and it doesn’t cost extra for her services. She was very careful to stay within our budget and responsive when issues came up. Benson offers materials at every price point and in some cases their prices were cheaper than big box stores.Karen B.

I chose Benson Stone because Kayla was so helpful and Benson Stone had everything I needed. With a limited budget, Kayla listened to what I was looking for, sourced beautiful cabinets, made adjustments to the plans and helped me get the kitchen I’d waited so long for.Jackie D.

I just wanted to take a moment to thank our Kitchen and Bath Designer, Erin Knabe. To say "thank you" really doesn't encompass our feelings for what she has done to help us make our dream home come true. Through the whole process, she was our "guiding light". Leanna M.

We worked with Kayla when we had our two upstairs bathrooms gutted and remodeled. Kayla was thorough, professional and great to work with. Both bathrooms turned out beautifully and we absolutely love them.Teri R.

Erin Knabe and her Benson team were incredibly professional and affordable. She gave us a kitchen of our dreams (granite Island, new cabinets, all new flooring, new deep sink) ALL WITHIN BUDGET AND ON TIME!! DeAnna B.

It was really convenient being able to shop for, and coordinate, everything right in one spot. After shopping around, I was also surprised that they weren't more expensive than the other places around town and that they were able to work with my budget. Everything's installed now and it looks amazing!Michael M.
