Who am I

Lance Stratton

Practical, Personal, Professional:
That’s who I am.

Creative functional design applied to every project I undertake:
That’s what I do.

Lance Stratton is an award-winning kitchen and bath specialist and full-service design professional known for the outstanding craftsmanship and customer service that he provides busy professionals in southern California, and across the country.
Lance has won widespread acclaim for his attention to detail and quality workmanship during his highly successful 32-year career. Virtually all his work comes from repeat and referral business, with some client relationships going back over 25 years.

He works on projects from San Diego and Palm Dessert to Mexico and London. Lance has won numerous design and service awards on both a local and national level.

Key to Lance’s success is the degree of preparation and attention to detail that go into his projects. He devotes many hours of research into his work and is one of the region’s few design professionals who provides detailed hand drawings. “I focus on quality more than quantity, and limit the number of projects I take on, so I can serve my clients better.”

Studio Stratton designs wine rooms, libraries, closets and other spaces as well as kitchens and bathrooms. The company is backed by some of the region’s foremost cabinetry manufacturers, engineers, general contractors, CAD specialists, installers, fabricators, and craftsmen.

Lance, whose work has appeared in publications nationwide, became certified as a draftsman at age 18. He then apprenticed for over 10 years under several of San Diego’s most respected residential architects.

Having mastered the disciplines of his craft, he now specializes in creating unique, one-of-a-kind projects for executives and entrepreneurs from coast to coast.


“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 used to be an architect and has a great eye for design. He is willing and able to design the entire project!”

“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.”

“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.”


“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.”
