“I have been involved in multiple renovations and have worked with numerous people building out kitchens. For my personal residence everything had to be perfect. My wife and I interviewed and explored several options and the chosen kitchen designer had some high expectations to meet. Well we chose Lance Stratton and I am so glad we did. We are enjoying our amazing kitchen and owe a HUGE thanks to Lance for doing a masterful job from start to finish. If you are looking for a trustworthy and knowledgeable designer, look no further and call Lance. He is easy to work with and full of great ideas and years of experience.”


“I cannot thank Lance and Marcie at Studio Stratton enough. My new kitchen is beautiful, and they get much of the credit!

Lance came to my house every time I needed him, often for advice on things other than my cabinets. He has a great eye for design and is willing and able to design the entire project!”

Karen Brailean

“We used Lance at Studio Stratton to do our kitchen design for our upcoming remodel. Lance is very easy to work with. He really listened to what we wanted in our new kitchen and came up with interesting ideas we had not thought of. I would recommend Lance for any kitchen or bath design.”


“I operate a Bed and Breakfast Inn and was recently told that I had to make major upgrades to my kitchen in order to continue with my dinner offerings. This was a major setback for me. Within days Lance came to Big Bear and drafted the required plans, figuring out the most efficient way of redoing the kitchen while still making it pleasing on the eye in a Bed and Breakfast setting. He couldn't have done a better job and I highly recommend him.”
