Jennifer Voll’s path to kitchen and bath design came from a period of transition: After a successful career as a paralegal, Jennifer and her husband had their first child. Being a stay-at-home mom was in the cards, and Jennifer started helping her husband with the business end of his construction company. Five years later, CYPRESS DESIGN CO. was born.
“When I embarked on this adventure, I didn’t have a background in business, or even in design,” Jennifer reflects now. “We opened our doors with one designer and myself doing the books part- time. Fifteen years later we have expanded our showroom by three times and have a full-time staff of six.” Cypress Design Co. has worked with dozens of general contractors and seen homeowners’ dream kitchens and bathrooms to fruition. One of Jennifer’s designers was recognized as a “Thirty Under 30” awardee in 2017 from the National Kitchen and Bath Industry, and on four separate occasions, the company earned “Best in Design” awards from Waypoint Living Spaces.
Over the years, Jennifer has worn many hats, working closely with her team and with customers to ensure every detail is approached with care: “I know how important complete and utter transparency is to our customers regarding budgets and timeframes.” Now, she happily assumes a managerial role, overseeing final pricing and plans and communicating with homeowners and contractors every step of the way.
With a spacious showroom full of the latest – and distinctly Rhody – styles and materials for kitchen and bathroom builds, Cypress Design Co. certainly has their niche, but recently Jennifer has broadened their reach to include home offices and finished basements, too. Approaching their 16th year, Jennifer’s humble business has blossomed into a team of collaborative and dedicated workers.
