National Kitchen & Bath Association - CKD

National Kitchen and Bath Association

Designing a well designed, functional kitchen requires specialized skills and expertise. While there are many designers who “design” kitchens, only a limited number hold credentials as Certified Kitchen Designers. MainStreet’s very own, Christine Ramaekers, CKD, is one of them.

Certified Kitchen Designers specialize in the design, planning and execution of residential kitchens, and provide advanced knowledge of technical and personal communication skills required to succeed as a design specialist, as defined by the National Kitchen and Bath Association (NKBA). To be certified, they are required to have a minimum of 7 years of experience designing residential kitchens, meet specific educational requirements and pass a comprehensive exam.

This means Christine is trained and certified to help you achieve exactly what you want in your new kitchen—from the initial plans to the detailed product selections. By working with a certified kitchen designer, and specifically Christine Ramaekers, your kitchen will accurately reflect your individual lifestyle needs, and fit the architectural design of your home.

Lead-Safe Certified Firm

EPA Certified Lead Paint Remodeler

The health and safety of your family is paramount. As an EPA Certified Lead Paint Remodeler, MainStreet Design Build is qualified to safely handle renovations in lead-based homes built before 1978, which is when the use of lead paint was officially banned from residential construction.  EPA Lead Certification means that MainStreet Design Build has been trained and certified by the EPA to follow specific protocols that prevent the spread of lead contamination during a home renovation.  In order to become EPA Lead Certified, MainStreet Design Build had to submit an application to the EPA and complete a federal/state-sponsored eight-hour class as well as two hours of hands-on training. Recertification occurs every five years. Learn more about the benefits of using an EPA Lead-Safe Certified Remodeling Company.
