Stephanie Bruntz is the owner and designer at Stephanie Bruntz Designs. She specializes in unique designs tailored to meet the needs of each individual client and places great emphasis on customer service. She feels that each client needs time and attention to get the project just right, no matter how large or small. Stephanie loves the entire process of making a project become reality. She can visualize from the very beginning what the project will become upon completion. This is a great asset for her clients as it ensures a successful design that is in harmony with the rest of the home, whether it be a remodel or new construction. Stephanie enjoys taking time to get to know each client in order to create a design that will best complement each client's tastes and goals for the overall functionality of their space.
Stephanie is a 2003 graduate from the University of Nebraska at Kearney where she earned her degree in Interior Design with an emphasis in Kitchen and Bath Design while also running cross country and track for the Lopers. After graduation she moved to Wichita, Kansas to begin her kitchen and bath design career. In 2007 she became a CKD (Certified Kitchen Designer). She and her husband Josh lived and worked in Wichita until moving back to Kearney at the end of 2010 to be closer to family. Stephanie continued her design career in Kearney by taking on the challenge of overseeing the creation of Studio B Design. She managed Studio B Design from 2011 until 2016 at which point she and Josh decided to take the leap to open their own showroom, Stephanie Bruntz Designs. Stephanie has had the privilege to work on projects in Kansas, Nebraska, Colorado, Oklahoma and abroad. Stephanie loves spending time with Josh and their two daughters - Olivia & Mariah, running, cake decorating, home remodeling projects and yard work/landscaping.
