Cliff started designing in July of 2006. He came to TKSI in July of 2012. Since the beginning of his design career, he has had extensive factory training from 9 different cabinet lines. Cliff craves knowledge and peruses any training made available.
Cliff’s approach to designing your project is to make the finish design yours. He says his signature is all over it but it will be your kitchen or bath. “I just hold the client’s hand as we walk through the forest and help them answer the important questions that make it theirs.” this is one of his favorite quotes. Cliff will often tell a customer “when you and I look at the design and we both give it two thumbs up, we’re there.” Form and function must coexist in a design. Your kitchen needs to beautiful but must also be functional. If your friends come over and say “nice kitchen” or “why did they do that?” it means we missed. They should be stunned and ask “Who did your kitchen?” When you use your kitchen you should never feel “I wished I had done that.”
Having been the general contractor on his own house in Conifer, Cliff understands the frustrations of the process, and strives to make your experience one you will enjoy. He will help you find answers to the question that make a difference to you, and handles the small issues that you don’t need to bother with. He is always available to you during those times when you need feedback on decisions or questions about your project.
Cliff has been married to his high school sweetheart Kim since 1978. Cliff and his wife spent several years on the art circuit with him assisting Kim in her Blown Glass studio. This influence of her art skills rubbed of and stirred a creative nerve that he carries into the designing of cabinetry. His previous career in the tool business makes him a stickler for detail. The combination of these two factors is part of what Cliff says “makes for great cabinet designs.”
Hi Cliff, Thank you so much for the nice thank you note and Daz Bog gift card! What a thoughtful gesture. I actually have already recommended you! My friends are looking for some cabinets and I sent them your contact info. They should be contacting you soon. She is a realtor like me, so pretty busy, but she said she would contact you. We will recommend you to anyone else we talk to looking for cabinets for sure. We’re very grateful for your help and really excited for our new cabinets! Thank you!
