Kitchen & Bath Designer

Justina Auer

Since 2008 I’ve worked in the Kitchen & Bath industry working both on new homes, remodels and some light commercial work. While I was working, I finished up my Bachelor’s Degree of Fine Arts in Interior Design at Sage College of Albany in 2009. College is where I found the design niche I wanted to be in.

With the concentration of being more residential, I found kitchen and bath very important to understand how meticulous you need to be. It’s very much a science within the art form. I’ve also received several recognitions and awards for designs I’ve done in both the Kitchen and Bathroom, including the “Best New Kitchen” award at the 2016 Capital Regions NKBA Awards Gala. It’s always an honor to be recognized by your peers!

Along the design path in the Kitchen & Bath industry, I have been lucky to have worked with all types of clients and designers to create spaces that are functional, aesthetically pleasing and just right for each one of the homeowners style. My ideal first meeting with a client is to sit down and go through all the wants and needs that they may want to see, and the hopes of what the end result will look and feel like. From there, the space can come alive.
