My story

KATHRYN LACKEY, Sole Proprietor, ASP

I’m thrilled to share with you my passions for design and real estate!  As an Accredited Staging Professional, my goal is to create the vision for your home space to prospective buyers employing  an extensive background in kitchen and bath remodeling serving the Dallas metro and surrounding areas.  A New York native, I originated my career in the advertising profession after receiving my B.A. in Ad/PR Journalism from the Univ. of SC/Columbia.  However, I later transitioned into kitchen design following a corporate relocation to Dallas.  My intrigue and involvement in real estate as an investment grew during this time as I began to manage my parent's property investments simultaneously handling elder care for Mom.  This seed was planted at an early age and fueled by their successful retirement savings rental home investments during my childhood upbringing.


Since 2005, I’ve advanced as a designer benefiting from wonderful customer relationships while creating the vision of opportunity to tired spaces with an emphasis on the home’s kitchen and bathroom areas, commonly entitled the heartbeat of the home. During the economic downturn that soon followed in 2008, I began noticing a progressive trend in my projects among homeowners, sellers, and investors alike. While business remained strong and customers continued to remodel, their goals shifted dramatically as overall budget investments, styles, and product selections dominated personal preferences to endorse future resale values.  Mass appeal, simplicity, and value largely influenced each remodel’s style and customizations in preparation for the forthcoming housing market recovery. Those intentions became the foundation of K&B Staging and Designs upon its inception in 2019.


For homeowners and home investors, my designs help to generate the look and appeal that fits your purpose and situation exclusively. Whether your needs include redesigns for kitchen or bathroom renovation or reinventions of home spaces through resale home staging, my goal is to unveil your home’s hidden potentials incorporating modern designs and trends that ultimately showcase your home and increase your overall equity.  


For realtors and affiliate home stagers, my reinventions of kitchen and bathroom spaces through advanced facelifts  will showcase your problem listing employing product upgrades, styles, and colors appealing to your target buyer. I invite you to benefit yourself and your clients with increased value properties and reduced DOM through your value-add to your home seller services through my kitchen and bath facelifts, appliance and flooring replacements, and resale preparations.
