Our Mission

To glorify God by offering a service/product that establishes a long-term relationship between the client and us.

A plan in the heart of a man is like deep water, but a man of understanding draws it out. Many a man proclaims his own loyalty, But who can find a trustworthy man? A righteous man who walks in his integrity. Proverbs 20:5-7a

Soli Deo Gloria!

Design Philosophy

Design PhilosophyRentfrow Design, LLC’s design philosophy is ‘Creating Moods in Individual Spaces’. Creating moods involves paying special attention to the details of a home. Columns, trim, doors, windows, and unique nooks and shelves are some of the main elements Jon uses to help create the environment of each space.

Individual spaces is derived from the ‘Not So Big House’ concept of residential design. Jon tries to develop, in a home, multiple places to escape to, such as quiet reading areas in a master suite or a den. These get-away places are not to be large, but in abundance.

Jon not only looks at the design, but also the function of a space. Traffic flow, possible furniture layouts, and physical space limitations are just some of the concepts that are evaluated when making floor plans. Additionally, maximizing scenic views out of a home are also of great importance, here in Colorado, and are taken into consideration when ‘Creating Moods in Individual Spaces’.
