Kirby Mast

"I enjoy helping clients realize their dream kitchens & bathrooms"

Kirby Mast is an experienced designer with over 28 years in the construction industry, the past 20 being focused on kitchen and bath design and remodeling. An avid outdoorsman, Kirby is inspired by the colors and textures of nature and incorporates them wherever he can - whether it's in the form of hardwood floors, solid wood cabinets, or natural quartz countertops. As a father, he understands the importance of creative storage and kid-friendly interior design. In his time away from design work, you'll find Kirby taking in the outdoors with his wife and three children, enjoying sports, and watching movies.

Kathie McConnell

"My focus is on client wants and needs, what's best for each individual customer."

Kathie McConnell has worked in the remodel industry for over 20 years and has seen many trends come and go - which has given her a great appreciation for design that's truly timeless. Need help figuring out which countertops are best for your kitchen or bathroom? Designing a kids' bathroom that can grow as your little ones do? Kathie is here for you for all your bathroom and kitchen needs. A grandmother who loves to camp and swim, Kathie excels at designing family-friendly spaces and says she loves the challenge of figuring out how to make small, difficult spaces useable.

Melinda Butler

"My goal is to bring the story of who my clients are, as individuals or as a family, out through the choices we make together."

Melinda Butler's Interior Design studies at Miami University of Ohio gave her a strong understanding of how interiors come together, from the underlying architecture of a space to the furniture and the soft furnishings that fill it. Her 6 years in the industry, and her 3 years at Hartville Hardware, have led her to the conviction that a well thought-out design realizes the full potential of a space, as well as carefully integrating that design with the rest of the home. If you're looking for someone to help you design the coziest breakfast nook or to help you make your home bathroom feel like a spa, Melinda can do that - plus so much more. Melinda, her husband, and her dog Sydney recently moved into their first home.

Ruth Ferwerda

"Joanna Gaines is my go-to when it comes to design inspiration. I love how she combines styles into one cohesive look."

In her 31 years in the construction/remodeling industry, Ruth Ferwerda has seen a lot, but in recent years, her go-to for design inspiration has been Joanna Gaines. She's seen the way an airy color palate can open up a room, the way that designing around the timeless elements of the home can make custom spaces that are unique to the homeowner. Ruth is an expert at modern farmhouse, country chic, and rustic design, but she's got the chops to tackle any design style - industrial, modern, or even glam. Need bathroom cabinets or a new bathroom vanity? Ruth is here to help - with those and with any other kitchen and bath design needs you may have. Ruth has three sons, loves to run, and spends as much time outdoors as possible.

Sharon Lammlein

"I enjoy seeing the changes and the customer's reaction when they see their dream spaces unfold."

Sharon Lammlein has spent the last 25 years designing kitchen and baths for customers at Hartville Hardware, where she loves taking customers bathroom remodel ideas and kitchen renovation plans and helping make them a reality. Do you have walk-in shower ideas that you'd like to bring to life? Wanting to try a new kitchen layout so you can make the most of the space you have? Sharon is ready to help with that and more. Her attention to detail and love of interior decoration are obvious at work and at home, where she loves quilting and needlework.
