Peggy Udelhofen, CKDDesigner

In 2008, Ms. Udelhofen earned her CKD [certified kitchen designer] designation from the NKBA [National Kitchen and Bath Association]. She is also a registered member of the ASID [American Society for Interior Design].
A graduate of the University of Illinois at Champaign-Urbana, Ms. Udelhofen studied interior design and art. Her interior design experience also includes consulting for hospitals and clinics in the healthcare industry; directing showroom installations for Neocon; and managing sales for a furniture showroom in the Merchandise Mart.
“My design philosophy is very simple and clean. Kitchens, and bathroom for that matter, should reflect the owner’s personality. I don’t mix styles a lot. I like to incorporate the style of the home, and match its vintage, in the design. The value I bring to the client is in being a hard worker. I like to be there for people. Creative and enthusiastic are the two words people use to describe me.”
