    Great as expected
    The work I’ve seen done from this company is nothing short of outstanding. From the color schemes, to the textures, to the pieces and furniture used all seems to have a perfect purpose in each lay out.Mana design knows how to incorporate efficiency, organization, quality and sophistication in every project given. I would highly recommend

    definitely they know what to do
    Our home design layout is beautiful, yet challenging, as it is a large, free flowing, open space floor plan overlooking the water. Not easy to tie together for a cohesive, unified look. Yet, Mana design showed They are a visionary, displaying creativity and talent. They wealth of experience was evident as designer researched furniture, fabrics, colors, rugs, draperies, and accessories (all to perfection) tying the rooms together for a cohesive sophisticated look.

    Kitchen Remodel
    Verified Review
    Mazi and Mary designed our dream kitchen, and they were all wonderful to work with! With very little guidance and direction, they came up with a design that was everything we wanted - clean, efficient (lots of storage!) and above all, beautiful. Being new to the remodel process, we needed a lot of help wrapping our heads around the design options, and the Mana Design team supported us every step of the way. The cabinet quality is the best and we live all the accessories that they suggested. They are consummate professionals, prompt and very responsive, and most of all, fun to work with. I cannot recommend Mana Design enough!

    I am so happy with Mazi's services (Mana Design) . He completely designed and drafted the new layout and design for my shop. He got the city approval and pull the permit. It is not easy to find someone who you can trust and has experience in commercial interior design. After interviewing with many people, my partner and I, picked MaNa Design because we found Mazi so professional from the day first. Until the final day, he was on top of his schedule and we were in touch via any cominucqtion system such as FaceTime, Skype, etc. and personal meeting during those 10-days. You must see his beautiful showroom, it tells how he cares about every detail. His company is a real example of success and novelty. I am writing this comments to share with everyone our wonderful experience with his design services. We are going to buy all materials that we have chosen from his showroom and we will defiantly use his company - Mana Design Build Inc - to do the construction part. He is licensed and bonded and as far as we did research on his company, he did many beautiful and amazing construction. I hope the above comment helps you all.

    Bathroom Remodel
    Verified Review
    I can't say enough great things for Mazi and his team at Mana Design Build. From beginning to end, we found everyone we came in contact with to be honest, professional, patient and competent. We received several quotes for a master bathroom and powder room remodel and hardwood floor installation for our home. After looking at all of them, we decided on Mana Design because we thought the estimate was fair, they had outstanding reviews on Thumbtack and we really liked Mazi. He came and took a look at our master bathroom and immediately had great ideas that put them in computer software - something that really lacked from the other contractors. He is very expert in what he is doing and as a home owner, he will educate us before we finalize our decision on materials. In all honesty, his quote a was little more than the others, but we sensed the integrity in him that was echoed in many other reviews. We didn't mind paying a little more for the design and his extra time to know that we would be working with someone who would be proactive in fixing any problems that arose and believe wholeheartedly that you get what you pay for! He designed our powder room exactly what I was dreamed for. Like with any remodel and installation process, there are so many decision- both big and small- and I felt like Mazi was patient with us and had a true concern for our project. His foreman Mo was wonderful also. He kept us updated on what crew would be coming everyday and talked with us about little details while giving us his expert opinion. They has a nice portal to monitor your project scheduling, payments and even progressing pictures. I can say with all honesty that every crew that came to work on our house- cabinetry, plumbing, hardwood floors, drywall/paint, granite and tile were outstanding. They worked hard, cleaned up their mess everyday, were kind and patient with my 4 and 2 year old and were nice and courteous to us. That makes a big difference when your life if turned upside down with a construction project, no bathrooms and a dust everywhere. We are extremely happy with our master bathroom and exclusively our lovely powder room and new hardwood floors. It has changed the look of our house and have received many compliments. And, it is worth noting, the entire project was completed in 4 weeks (and it would have been shorter if we didn't take some days picking out plumbing fixtures, lighting, stone and backsplash and cabinetry). 4 weeks! And no corners were cut or work was rushed. We recommend Mana Design without reservation and will be using them again for our future kitchen project. I recommend you do also and even pay for their design fee if you do care what you get. Eric and Kim Morales

    Mana Design Build just finished remodeling all 3 of our bathrooms. We love them and our new bathrooms. Our master bath was a complete mess and needed everything from new fixtures to new placement of shower, sink and toilet! Mazi (the owner) and Angela (the designer) was so knowledgeable of the latest designs, fixtures and really listened to what I wanted in my bathroom. Based on my input, she brought out fabrics, tile, granite samples all to my home. I didn't need to do any of the running around! She and Mazi met with us every step of the way! Demolition took only one day! He then reconfigured all the electrical and plumbing and started building my bathroom from scratch. The end result is a super functional, up-to-date master bathroom! Mazi then conquered our other 2 bathrooms. They needed a facelift: new tile, vanities, toilets, paint, the works! One of the benefits of working with Mana Design is that they are a design and build company. They provided all the materials, made all the necessary appointments for permits with the city of Lake Forest, and cleaned up the "remodel" mess every day before leaving! I am super pleased with my bathrooms! The work is clean and meticulous, and I know if we ever had an issue with something they would be out immediately to fix it. We look forward to our next project (remodel kitchen) with Mana Design Build!

    Awesome job! I hired them to add a room and bathroom to my house. They designed and construct it beautifully. Very professional and on time. They are licensed and bonded and with very professional crew. Everything was finished based on schedule. I am very happy with them. They even went beyond my expectation and did some extra work for me. I will use them again and highly recommend to anyone. Best experience with contractor ever.

    My sister first used MaNa Design back in 2008 (that time the name was slightly different) to completely remodel her bathroom. I asked her few times to give us his beautiful bathroom contractor's phone number. Within few times back and force and misunderstanding spelling and name, I finally submitted my request in here. Surprisingly, we found Mana Design quote. We called Mazi and remembered my sister's bathroom. I shared with that I couldn't have any idea that what I wanted and when Mazi came over to look at the space he immediately began his artistry in suggesting some really fun and beautiful finishing ideas. I actually ended up doing exactly what his first vision was because it was so good! We go to his shiwroom and browed his beautiful collections. Whinin few times, we picked all our materials and he patiantly uploaded them in his artistic computer rendering; so we can see them before even the job started. After we signed the contract he gave us very detailed scheduling and teach us how to review the progress report in Mana Design website. The job started smoothly per plan after the cabinets arrived. His crew was friendly, on time, worked hard and consistently (real important when you're stuck eating out every day until it's done!) I get so many compliments on his work and how beautiful it looks after completion. Now, after a month, I love what he did and I think this was the best design i could ever have for my kitchen. What an investment! I am now about to embark on project #2, my fireplace wall and bathroom. It is no question who I would use all over again. He's just as friendly and creative as the day I first met with him and I'm so excited for the amazing job that I know his business will do again. It's important to find a company you can trust, which Mana Design proved to me. It's also important to have good communication and solid craftmanship throughout the job. I can state with full confidence that you will be so glad you found this gem!! He just GETS IT. It's so rare to find someone who has such experience and expertise when it comes to materials and how to execute it all but also keep a professional working relationship along with being so accommodating and kind. He knows how to take care of his clients, how to communicate the project as it goes from demo to polishing the stainless... what a great experience along with a gorgeous end result.

    This is my big thank you to Mana Design. I simply loved what Mazi did in my new home. Not only is Mazi talented and professional, but he is a pleasure to work with. His passion and knowledge of Feng Shui is impressive and infectious. As a designer myself I can speak to his amazing eye for color and material. I have seen Mazi take a plain home with white walls and little architectural detail and turn it into a beautiful, colorful, fun, and functional home. He makes projects come to life almost effortlessly. His computer skill is awesome. I loved his rendering and visualization. Every penny was worthy that i spent with him. If I need Feng Shui, color or design consultant, or even just a little design inspiration Mazi is it! Thank You to Mazi and his company. Highly Recommended!!!

    I am a very picky customer. I hired Mana Design to do my kitchen remodeling. Mazi is the best designer I have ever work with. He is si patient and smart. He is also so savvy in using his small computer and designing my kitchen even putting my desired material in rendering. Finally, I picked my cabinetry from his beautiful showroom - Medallion - real wood, high quality with highest quality finished that applied to sea boat with custom color. Raul from Mana design installed the cabinets so perfectly and nicely. Joe fabricated my beautiful Quartz countertop and Edwin installed my faucet, dishwasher and other appliances. Mazi was always supervising his team and keep me inform during the job. Nothing to say all good things from this company. I love my new kitchen, it is snapped shot for houzz.com to participate in competition. I recommend to every one just to choose Mana Design as they are very professional and friendly.

    We just completed a project with Mana Design Build and we couldn't be happier with the result. The kitchen looks amazing! We recently bought a house and it needed major updates. Initially, we were going to work with our general contractor to remodel the entire house, but after reading reviews about Mana Design and their custom cabinetry, my husband and I were excited to tour their showroom. After the visit to their showroom and meeting Mazi and his team, we were sold. We don't have a big kitchen space, but Mazi was able to design a layout that works perfectly for our kitchen. They are very knowledgeable, professional and helpful. With a complete home remodel, we had to schedule and time every task correctly to make sure the project completes on time. We had so many requests, but they were willing to work with our aggressive schedule. The whole team was incredibly easy to work with and they are very responsive. Due to city approvals and permits, our project got delayed by 3 weeks. Mana Design finished our cabinets on time and they were willing to hold our cabinets in their warehouse until the house was ready. During the installation stage, the team did a superior job. They paid great attention to detail and cleaned up the work site nicely after the project was completed. We absolutely love our new custom kitchen and eating area. The quality of the custom cabinetry is very high-end and top-notch. Thank you Mana Design team for giving us the kitchen of our dreams! We had such a positive and great experience working with Mazi and his team. We highly recommend Mana Design Build! Anna & Bob
