Fiona Klerekoper launched FDK Design in 2006 with a vision of providing a personalized service that brings the beauty and harmony of great design into homeowners' lives.
As a certified kitchen and bath designer, her business was initially focused on finding unique and creative solutions for design challenges in those key areas of the home. Within a short space of time, building on relationships of trust and respect, those projects morphed into whole house renovations; beginning with the first seed of an idea.... all the way through arranging the flowers at the very end! Today she is proud to work with many returning and referred clients. and excited about creating new client partnerships.
Growing up with an entrepreneur mother who specialized in soft furnishings for the design industry, Fiona understands the craftsmanship and attention to detail that goes into making a project successful. Her love of the historical homes of her native Ireland, and travels throughout Europe, have given her an awareness of space, scale, and proportion that she brings to her work.
Fiona's first career in education has equipped her with skills that clients say have been key to successful collaborations: listening, patience, and communication.
Her projects have received awards from the National Kitchen and Bath Association, San Diego Home/Garden Lifestyle magazine and Houzz. Her work has been featured in San Diego Home/Garden Lifestyle magazine.
Fiona is an active member of the National Kitchen and Bath Association (NKBA) and values giving back to the community, particularly in the area of education. She has served as a panelist for design programs at community colleges and provided services to raise funds for local schools.

Fiona guides and educates you along the way giving you complete confidence. You end up with a finished product that far exceeds expectations. You will consult her on everything else you do long after your project is over. " - Stacy M.

It involves selecting color schemes, finishes, appliances, fixtures and fittings, furnishings, lighting etc......all of the major items needed to complete the design. A presentation will be prepared for the client.
