Our Design Team

It has been said that design is the search for a magical balance between business and art, between art and craft, intuition and reason, concept and detail and most importantly, between the Client and the Designer. Imperial Home Center differentiates themselves from the competition of “big box stores” by boasting a team of design professionals with a combined 90+ years of experience in the kitchen and bathroom remodeling business.

Why Do You Need a Veteran Designer?

Good Questions Are Asked and Intently Heard.

A veteran designer knows the pertinent questions to ask that will efficiently gauge your intentions, discern your needs, and identify your pain.

Good Design is Good Business.

Understanding and communicating your budget expectations helps the Designer establish realistic boundaries. Considering those financial parameters, the Designer will help the Client understand their product options and allowances.

“Form Follows Function” Must Be the Cornerstone in Every Design.

Truly elegant design incorporates top-notch functionality into simple and uncluttered form. There are obstacles to overcome with every kitchen or bath design and perhaps barriers that may hinder some of the options at your disposal. Once these barriers are overcome, the right combination of style, colors, textures, and finishes may be applied to achieve innovative and aesthetically pleasing living spaces.

There is No Such Thing as a “Cookie Cutter” Solution.

Each design must be tailored to the specific needs and desires of their respective owners. A successful designer must pair their own knowledge with the needs and wants of the client to create a custom design that perfectly suits each respective application.

Jennifer Ware

Mark, Design Team

Jennifer is the consummate design professional, detail oriented and process driven.  She loves helping her clients create spaces that are their very own.  She believes every client's space should tell a story and it is her job to help write that story.

After a successful career in the corporate world, Jennifer felt it was time to serve her country enlisting in the US Army in 1999. As a Military Intelligence NCO (Non-Commissioned Officer), Jennifer was stationed throughout the US for training then deployed overseas serving in Bosnia, Kuwait, and Iraq.  Jennifer is a Combat Veteran and is very proud of all she has accomplished.  In 2005, Jennifer left the military and worked in the government for another six years before deciding to follow her other passion ~ Interior Design.  She cashed in her GI Bill and as they say, "The rest is history!"  Jennifer graduated magna cum laude with a BFA in Interior Design from Virginia Marti College of Art & Design.  During her tenure at Virginia Marti Jennifer was an active board member of the student ASID and NKBA chapters and participated in several design competitions as well donating her talents and time for non-profit work providing beautiful spaces for those battling cancer.

Jennifer has nearly ten years of residential design experience.  Being on trend while still respecting historical architecture is a favorite conundrum.  She takes great pride in creating thoughtful, beautiful spaces meeting both her client's vision and financial allocation.  Jennifer is always grateful for and respectful of the trust her clients have in her and does everything she can to maintain that trust.
