Exceptional Service. Exceptional Results.


Who We Are

Based in Minneapolis, Minnesota, 612 Design offers expert design and remodel services for high-end kitchen, bathroom and home remodeling. As the owner and lead designer, Eric Carter takes a value-minded approach to creating dream kitchens and bathrooms that provide the "Wow!" factor you truly desire and will love. Our professional services are available in-person in greater Minneapolis-St. Paul and remotely in select cities nationwide.

What We Do

From concept to completion, 612 Design is dedicated to creating luxurious and timeless living spaces at affordable prices—with stylish, budget-friendly designs and gorgeous materials that offer the best bang for your buck. Just as if we were remodeling our own home, we'll recommend the best design plans, quality materials, latest installation methods and skilled contractors that can get the job done right with uncompromising craftsmanship. Our network of contractors and installers are used to working in owner-occupied homes with families, kids and pets around, which is a delicate and respectful process that requires a high level of planning and care—as you should always know and trust who's in your home. Whether your project involves removing walls and soffits to open up or reconfigure your kitchen or bathroom, or if you just want to cosmetically replace everything and keep your existing layout, our goal is to provide you with exceptional design services and exceptional remodel results.

How We Do It

We'll listen carefully to your project wish list and we'll create a customized design for your kitchen or bathroom that's aesthetically stunning and everyday comfortable—a functional design that provides the best use of space for your family and entertainment needs. Our design team will shop and help you select all of your products, materials, colors and textures for your project. And we'll recommend reputable contractors who will strive to ensure every facet of demolition, construction and installation is implemented according your design plan. We'll also provide you with expert advice on how to maximize your home value and increase your resale potential with smart design ideas and remodel choices that discerning home buyers want and would expect in a high-end remodel. Finally, we'll make sure your remodel stays on schedule and is completed to your highest expectations and ours with attentive project management and thoughtful personal service from start to finish.

Discount Prices

You'll receive our best pricing on cabinetry, appliances, countertops, tile, flooring, plumbing fixtures, lighting fixtures, decorative hardware and more. Our network of national suppliers like Ferguson® and ProSource® can help stretch your project dollars by passing on our discount pricing to you on many of your project products and materials. Depending on the supplier and manufacturer, your savings could be as much as 10-50% off MSRP. And you'll receive our best and lowest negotiated prices on all your labor and material bids from local, quality contractors and installers. We'll also review each bid or proposal and help you understand the details of what's included and what's not included—so you can make an informed decision on options, upgrades and costs.
