Square Inch Design's focus is residential design.


Our mission is to create inspiring spaces that respond to a client's specific spatial and budgetary needs. As an advocate in the design process, we work collaboratively with our clients to identify project goals, develop concepts and translate their vision into a built reality. We are experienced in a range of project sizes, from bathroom and kitchen remodels to outdoor spaces and decks to completely custom homes.
