We've worked with Hong on two kitchens and three bathrooms, and lots of additional design help in between, from paint color selection to home staging. From our first meeting-until the final detail was installed, Hong was available all along the way. She always went way over what was expected. Since we completed projects in two different cities, we worked with two different contractors. Both contractors were amazed and appreciative of the detailed design notes she provided that allowed them to perfectly execute the design plan. Since they were independent contractors this was high praise, as this was not the experience they always had.
Hong is patient. She is a teacher. She believes in achieving the most beautiful outcome while understanding budget constraints. Hong has demonstrated her talent, her patience, and her interest in achieving our goals. We highly recommend her for design, staging and all design challenges that you might encounter. We can't recommend her enough.

For our project, Hong was a lifesaver! She came to our rescue in a big way. We were nearing what we thought was the end of our kitchen remodel project when our contractor, unexpectedly, walked off our project; took our money and left us with bare walls and electrical wires sticking out of the wall - no cabinets. That’s when we were introduced to Hong, who stepped in and worked her magic – meticulously measured our kitchen, created a plan, and set off to order our kitchen cabinets. She under promised and over delivered. She was involved in every step of the project; checked on us to make sure we were comfortable throughout the process; as well as providing guidance and working closely with the cabinet installers we hired to ensure the work was done correctly and that we had a kitchen we would be happy with. I’m so glad Hong came into our lives and would not hesitate to refer her for any project. Her work ethic is unparalleled.

We met Hong two years ago, and we feel very privileged to have had that chance encounter. From the first design meeting at her desk, we knew we were watching a gifted expert "work her magic" and we were fascinated at the skill she exhibited and the knowledge she shared concerning our kitchen design.
Our projects are limited in scale to her capabilities, but she understands that and has no problem working within our budget and plans. Hong has designed two kitchens for us for investment properties and is now in process of helping us dream and design our new laundry room and kitchen in our own home.
She brings a refreshing energy to the design process. Above all, Hong is kindhearted, and we enjoy her laid back but very professional personality as she offers new ideas and challenges our decisions. Hong has a way of getting the client to rethink the purpose for this or that, because she is always one step ahead and wants us to understand the functionality of kitchen design while dreaming the beautiful.
She is never in a hurry. She listens intently to our vision for the project. She laughs with us. She makes the sometimes painstaking process of planning and design seem so easy. She is a master with her design software. She is just a joy, and we always look forward to sitting down with her to dream and design.
We love what Hong does for our homes, and we trust her expertise and her talent. She is simply THE BEST.

I can't say enough about how wonderful it is to work with Hong of Blossom Spaces. Her superior artistic vision, attention to detail and professionalism are exceptional. She sees the whole picture, and draws out your ideas and makes them better with good humor, patience and skill. Whether it was a complete kitchen remodel or a trim design, Hong knows how to work with a team to achieve the best result. Simply the best new designer in Kansas City!

My father in law previously worked with Hong and recommended her to design our remodeled kitchen. We didn't have much experience and were fairly unsure of what we wanted, but Hong was great at patiently guiding us along. Decisions that would've taken us forever (or worse, that we would've made thoughtlessly) were so much easier after talking with her.
She is kind, very fun to work with, she works hard, and is quite funny too. We value her opinions and knowledge so much that we also asked her advice about decorating our house -- an agonizing task that she's made seem easy. Our kitchen far exceeds our expectations and we feel so lucky to have met Hong! When we are ready to remodel our bathroom, there's no doubt that we'll hire her for the job.

This is the designer, and now friend, I hope. who helped with my kitchen remodel. She guided (actually led) me to making some great decisions in remodeling my kitchen to exactly what I wanted. It is so beautiful now. As soon as I have put all my kitchen items away, I will post pictures of my beautiful kitchen. You won't believe the difference. I just don't want you to see it with all the items around it that need to be unpacked. Hong has been a miracle worker. She has been so patient with me and helped me not to be to quick with my decisions. She's the best and, if you have any remodeling jobs, you should contact her before contacting anyone else. You won't be sorry. I sure wasn't! Keep an eye out for the pictures!

I can honestly say that we wouldn't have our beautiful kitchen today if it weren't for Hong, Blossom Spaces. My partner and I had such differences in opinions/design ideas that we went back and forth for a solid 3 years. We knew we needed a designer who could combine our different tastes. After a number of disappointing consults, we were so lucky to have found Hong! She immediately put together detailed plans and samples after discussing our needs and wants. And I'll have to say, reflecting back a year ago when we did this, we didn't make any major changes to her orig design. She really understood our vision - two different visions. We were quite indecisive and she was so very patient and always available to discuss things through with us. Quality of the cabinets was priority for my partner and Hong did not disappoint. We love our beautiful custom Kemper cabinets, with all the much needed storage solutions. She was onsite (from Kansas) on 3 separate occasions to ensure our 8 week project was progressing as planned. We will be calling Hong for our next project! In fact, we continue to run design ideas by her, from new dining table style to new window treatments. Call her and you'll understand how fantastic and incredibly talented she is!
