Common Sense Values

Advance Design Studio’s Core Values:

Our core values make us who we are. As we change and grow, the beliefs that are the most important to us stay the same – believing in our people, acting with integrity, producing the ultimate client experience, improving the quality of life, and being passionate about what we do.

We bring these 5 core values to each and every relationship we develop, to each and every project we complete; no matter the size, scope or price tag.

Our People

1. We believe in our people

We take care of our people and they take care of our clients.
Our “people first” environment of giving our team the tools and opportunities to grow and succeed, and rewarding them with the company’s success is at the very core of our company culture.

#2 Integrity&Excellence

2. We act with integrity and excellence

How we do business is as important as what we do.
We hold ourselves to uncompromising ethical standards and performance. This extends to our day-to-day business conduct, our employee practices, our sales process, and our incessant commitment to client satisfaction.


3. It’s all about the client experience

Our dedication to our client shows in everything we do.
Everything from the Common Sense Remodeling Process, to our showroom, to our behind the scenes systems, to our staff training, to how we answer the phone is dedicated 100% to the complete client experience.


4. We improve the quality of life

Lives and families are changed forever by what we do.
From enjoying a meal with friends in your new kitchen, relaxing after long work hours in the master bath, or spending quality time with your family in the new lower level; close your door to the world and enjoy your home and your family exactly the way you envision it.


5. We are passionate about design and fine craftsmanship

Appreciation for detail in the simplest of design matters.
Whether it’s a perfect miter joint or the clever way the kitchen cabinetry hides all the spices, fine design and attention to detail are an integral part of our DNA. Our passion for design and fine craftsmanship is evident in every finished detail of your new space.
