About Melissa Seibold

For each person, a dream kitchen is a reflection of magical memories and their aspirations. Melissa Seibold knows that by investing time to listen to each client, she can draw from them the characteristics of the kitchen they truly desire. Melissa loves the uniqueness of every project and she embraces every style, knowing that each can address a homeowner’s vision.

With a B.A. in Architecture and Computer Science from Lehigh University, Melissa takes the information she gathers from clients and develops 3D color renderings. Each rendering suggests the materials being used to create the character of the kitchen as well as the layout. This enables clients to tour their space before the room is constructed. They can determine if the look is right and if the layout functions as it should based upon their family’s lifestyle: who cooks, who entertains, and who gathers round the kitchen.
