Traci was recommended to me as someone who could help me with color selection with updating two bathrooms in my home. Traci was prompt in her response, providing us her thoughts. Over the next few weeks, we met at various vendors, the tile store, selecting paint colors, fixtures and great sinks. And, of course, the all important granite selection. She was patient and guided us gently along the decision points. We ordered a glass shower door and she had very good contacts who did excellent work. She was checking in often, which I appreciated. I would recommend her work, especially for those who just don't know where to start :-)

Traci Dokken – Design – YES! I can't say enough good things about working with Traci Dokken-Design but I would like to share my experience with Traci.
First a little background on my project. I have a 1979 Split level home in Eden Prairie that was stuck in 1979. I needed help in bringing the upstairs forward thirty plus years. That included a remodel of the kitchen, living room, and dining room.
Traci was able to provide me a turnkey solution on my project which means I had one point of contact for everything. From picking out appliances to scheduling contractors, everything ran through Traci. If I had any questions or concerns my one point of contact was Traci.
I had a general idea of what I wanted the remodel to look like. Traci was able to take my general ideas and put them all together in a detailed designed plan. Traci was able to plan out appliances, cabinets, colors, lighting – you name it she had everything nailed down with concrete plans. It was awesome that she could put this all together and take the stress of picking out the right appliances the right colors etc.
Traci is also flexible. This means she was able to take my general ideas and turn them into a concrete plan as mentioned, but she was able and willing to make changes during the remodel if it made sense. I can provide one major instance. I had an island picked out and ordered but in the end the supplier did not come through (this was not done through Traci unfortunately- that is on me). Traci came through, she got her own supplier, redesigned the original island and it turned out perfect! No worries!
So, you have a small project or large project in mind CALL Traci! I promise if you want a first rate designer that can enhance your living experience and make the process stress free you owe it to yourself to work with Traci Dokken – Design. And as a bonus she is a great person.

Traci Dokken was professional during every step of the process, lending her design experience when we needed it most. She got to know our family, how we live, and what we wanted in our new kitchen and designed a new kitchen to meet our dreams. Of the several remodel design bids we received, Traci was the only one who thought outside the original kitchen space and moved our kitchen to a larger and more functional space in the back of the house. The new space allowed us to have everything we wanted in a new kitchen!
Traci worked within our practical budget and directed us to resources that helped us stay on financial track. She provided insight into the design of a modern kitchen, while maintaining the cottage charm of our fifty year old bungalow. We are confident that the design and function of our remodel will stand the test of time.
Her skilled construction crew was also professional and efficient throughout the project. They were timely in their work, cleaned up the site daily, and were mindful of our situation of living without a kitchen. Of the few minor problems encountered, Traci reacted immediately and worked to solve the problem - our satisfaction was her number one goal. The quality and craftsmanship are reflected in the beauty and function of our new kitchen and dining room - Traci and her crew went above and beyond our expectations!

Working with Traci Dokken made a big project, with a tight timeline,
go extremely smooth. She completely transformed our once '70s
kitchen to a kitchen we could only dream of.
Every detail was carefully considered while continuing to stay on track.
She is professional, creative, resourceful and a lot of fun to work with.
Her crew was professional and cared about the quality of their work.
They did an amazing job on our Red Birch floors.
Our favorite part of the kitchen? Everything! We are extremely happy
with our beautiful kitchen and would recommend Traci to anyone.

I had the pleasure of working with Traci Dokken on a recent update to my basement level. Traci helped pick out the cabinet style and wood (Alder, which I love), counter tops for both the family room and the laundry room along with cabinet hardware, new lighting fixtures, dura-ceramic flooring and carpet for the family room. The project was complete in about 10 weeks and I couldn't be happier. I am a very busy Marketing Manager for a $2.7 Billion company and Traci made my life simple, she did all the shopping and made the recommendations saving me countless hours of wandering around showrooms picking out various items. I've never used an Interior Designer before and believe me I would never tackle a project again without someone like Traci to help me out.

I have had the honor of working with Traci and the rest of the team on a lot of different occasions. They have always been extremely professional and fun to work with. The other thing I love about Traci and her team is all the project turn out creative and exactly what the customer wants. Traci is always a very positive person that looks for solutions and not for problems. They are the only remodeling team that I ever recommend, because I know I can trust the whole team to do what is right for my customer.
Tracy did a great job in coordinating a basement finishing job. She has great insight as to design and work corrdination. You will be very pleased if you work with Traci.
I have had the pleasure of working with Traci over the past serveral years. She has a positive can do attitude that shines through on all of her projects. It is evident that she enjoys her work and always strives not only to meet, but exceed her clients expectations.
I have worked with Traci as a board member at the local Chamber of Commerce, as a client, and as a provider of services. Her attention to detail and excellent customer service, especially when combined with her creativity and professionalism, make her one of the top designers and remodelers I have ever worked with! Traci arrives on time, finishes the project within budget and on schedule, and always delivers exceptional value...I unashamedly recommend Traci and her company!!!
