Welcome to Grande Wood Designs!



"Mike and I were introduced to Joe Grande of Grande Wood Designs by our contractor Steve Eldridge. In addition to having our cabinets built locally, we were looking for a person who would give us that extra edge with details in design and workmanship.

We really lucked out! Joe introduced us to Lyptus, a “green wood”, for our cabinets and everything turned out perfect. We now have ‘our dream kitchen’ and I want to thank Joe and his craftsmen for their outstanding commitment for giving us just that."

"Joe Grande came highly recommended to us by our contractor who was doing some remodel work at our house.  We wanted a new kitchen so we started working with Joe on a design.  The kitchen was funky and needed some imagination to create a functional yet lovely place to work in. Working with Joe and Edwina was an absolute delight.  They are people with character and integrity and there was never a moment that didn't go smoothly. As Joe came highly recommended to us, we highly recommend him to anyone who desires good craftsmanship and quality work."

"Thank you for the wonderful job you did on our recent kitchen remodel. It all started with the design stage where you both listened to what we had in mind and then incorporated both our ideas, as well as, suggesting other innovative ideas into the final design. The end product was terrific.

The installation was done on time and your installers were efficient and kept the dust and mess to a minimum. Our experience with contractors fulfilling their contracts has not been good and your overseeing the sub-contractors was appreciated. You not only met your contract but went beyond the call of duty and both Judy and I could not be happier.

We have had many compliments from guests on what a change it made in the functionality of our kitchen, as well as, its appearance. We have and will continue to recommend your work to anyone who is interested in quality work."

"Speaking as a professional Interior Designer of 34 years, who has worked with Grande Wood Designs both professionally and personally, I can attest to the exceptional quality of both the process and the end result.

From the beginning of discussing wants and needs, to the thrill of installation, working with Joe Grande and his staff is extraordinary. He is a design visionary, a creative problem solver, a detail man, and someone who has follow-through ethics that are so essential, yet rarely found.

He makes the whole process easy. His communication skills spark options, based on experience, which makes the planning stage fun. And, his attention to details throughout the project, make it run smoothly. The fact that he and his staff develop, measure, fabricate, as well as install the products insures a great finished result.

Everyday I pull open a drawer and mentally say "thanks, Joe and all the Grande Wood Design experts!"
