about us

the heart & Home Story

Our day begins and ends in the kitchen. It’s the place where my family spends most of our time together, so when my husband and I were making plans to build, we wanted the kitchen to reflect our design style and most importantly be super functional, as the hub of our busy home.

In December 2015, I happened upon Schmidt Custom Cabinetry as I was passing through Olpe, Kansas. We'd just broke ground on our house, so of course I had to stop in. Best decision ever! I immediately felt drawn in by their showroom and the craftsmanship was impressive. I sent my plans over that day.

From start to finish, we had a wonderful experience designing our cabinetry with owner, Tyler Schmidt. We appreciated his willingness to listen to our ideas, which he made even better with his expertise as a third generation carpenter. On install day we were ecstatic to have our expectations fully exceeded! Tyler’s talented and dedicated staff not only build their custom cabinetry with excellent skill and craftsmanship, they install them to make sure every last detail is done right. They are professional through and through. We love our kitchen!!

With my background in the home build/remodel business it didn’t take long for me to start dreaming about designing beautiful custom kitchens for those who love them as much as I do. In December 2017, I became a proud partner with Schmidt Custom Cabinetry and opened Heart & Home Design Co. for all your custom cabinetry and kitchen design needs. Serving Topeka, Lawrence, Manhattan, Kansas City and surrounding areas.

how it began

schmidt family

For over 35 years the Schmidt family of Olpe, KS has specialized in home building and remodeling. In 2004 upon a customer’s request, they crafted their first custom cabinets which would lead their son
Tyler to take the leap into his passion for woodworking full-time to start Schmidt Custom Cabinetry.

I have always had a passion for the home. In fact growing up, my dreams never went far from home. Home is our sanctuary, our safe place. It's where we are free to fully be us, express ourselves, to love and nurture our families.

My vision for Heart & Home is to translate the importance of the home, into everything we do. I want to help you create spaces that reflect who you are, that nurture and inspire you to live your best life. Of course nice things don't make us who we are, I just happen to know that when we love the home we're in, it gives a certain satisfaction that has an effect on our overall wellness. When our homes feel good, we feel good!

I'd love to chat with you about how we can help you improve the home you're in and make it the sanctuary you dream of.

Faith, family and friends…my first passion.

I’ve been married to my husband Quentin
for 16 years. We have four great kids and the best dog ever, Millie.

All things HOME is my second passion. I enjoy decorating & design, cooking, organizing, listening to music and sitting on our patio with a good book. We’re life-long Kansans but dream of living on the beach!
