Mary Alyce Evans is an extremely talented and creative designer. She was referred to me by a neighbor whose kitchen I love. We had a difficult spacing situation and by creatively opening some wall and moving a doorway Mary Alyce designed the perfect spaces for our kitchen, family room and dining room. The kitchen cabinets have beautiful details and are laid out perfectly. She custom designed the TV wall cabinet around my husband's extensive audio equipment - when needed it is all hidden behind beautiful cabinetry. Our first floor bathroom is gorgeous as well. Although a small space it now has a lot of functional but beautiful storage and a great shower.

I have know Mary Alyce Evans for 20 plus years as an exceptional kitchen and bath designer and a resource on anything that involves a kitchen or a bathroom. I learn so much when collaborating on design projects with her and find her greatest talent is her eye for detail and her knowledge of what makes a kitchen work efficiently while also being aesthetically pleasing.

Design meetings with her are well organized and she maintains good communication with clients to bring the project in on schedule. Her installers and trades people are talented and loyal to her so installations run smoothly.

Over the years, she has earned an outstanding professional reputation and has deservedly been published in high end trade and design magazines.

Her kitchen and bath designs are works of art and having her on your team makes the process a joy!

I live in Westchester and worked long distance with Michele Ahl on two bathrooms in Saratoga. I used a contractor she suggested, Michele worked side by side with Daryl and took on the job like it was her own home. Not only are the bathrooms exquisite but Michele finished them down to the last and smallest design detail. They looked like they were staged for the stars! I hope the studio posts pictures on their website because words cannot describe how beautiful my bathrooms came out. Michele goes above and beyond anything you could ever imagine from a designer. If you want to be 100%++ thrilled with your kitchen or bath design, go no further than Designers' Studio. Betsy MacDermott-Duffy

Two years ago we decided to renovate our home in Saratoga Springs. We visited several kitchen and bath stores in the area, but none of them appealed to us. These shops did not show a lot of original thought regarding the design process. Then we remembered that Mary Alyce Evans of Designers’ Studio has always been one of the premier designers in the area, so we contacted her regarding our project.

Mary Alyce is one of the most talented designers we have ever met, and it is no wonder that she has such a highly regarded reputation. She has a flair for developing designs that fit her clients’ personalities. Not only can she produce a beautiful design, but she will also ensure that it is a functional design that works for you—and she can do this for a wide range of budgets.

Of course, Mary Alyce has her own preferred style and color palette, but she also has the exceptional ability to understand and be sensitive to the client’s style and to provide input that is consistent with that style. However, she does this while being ready and willing to ensure that the client does not make any design faux pas.

Mary Alyce also brings to the table another valuable asset. Because of her years of design experience, she has a wealth of contractor, supplier, and skilled trade contacts. She can connect you with general contractors who will do the entire project or skilled people who can do any individual task in a renovation project. It is like having your own personal referral service that will provide you with a pre-approved list of professionals. This goes a long way toward taking some of the uncertainty and worry out of any renovation project.

Based on our experience, if you are looking for a designer in the Capital Region of New York, we would highly recommend that you visit Designers‘ Studio and speak with Mary Alyce or one of her team. You will not be sorry that you did.

Mary Alyce Evans helped us through a complicated but very successful renovation project. My husband and I had sought a professional to help us envision options for transforming our kitchen, family room and side entrance for many months but we were stalled by what seemed like insurmountable spatial issues. Mary Alyce was the first designer we met to come up with solutions that were creative, responsive to our design ideas and that led to the inviting contemporary addition we now enjoy.

Mary Alyce is great to work with. She can think outside the box and has a wonderful sense of design. She listens and offers alternatives. She is candid. I loved that she would share preferences but not impose her opinion. And her knowledge, skill and commitment to our project enabled us to create a cook’s kitchen that is beautiful as well as functional. Our family and friends love to be in our kitchen and so do I. I cannot recommend her highly enough.
