A great finished product.”

"I have worked with Lora on more than several kitchens and baths in houses and apartments I have renovated over the years. Included in these projects was my personal home, a pre- Civil War structure in which we redid the original kitchen and then later incorporated more space to enlarge the kitchen. I have found Lora a willing partner in the challenges renovated space present. Her ideas were practical to the space, my budget, and always creative with a great finished product. She was always willing to work until I was completely satisfied and confident in the design, bringing plans when promised and ontime for appointments. For this reason, along with her expertise and credentials, I will seek her advice again in the future and would not hesitate to recommend her to others."

"Monty Miller of Nix Miller Designs & Cabinetry is great to work with. Monty is very attentive to our needs and works hard to keep our cabinets and tops within budget. Since we build many different price range homes and also do remodeling, the wide selection of cabinetry supplied by Nix Miller Designs allows us the versatility to use only one source for our cabinetry and tops. We would highly recommend Monty Miller and Nix Miller Designs & Cabinetryfor your new home or remodeling needs."

“Turning a utilitarian thing into something inspired.”

"It was great working with Lora on our kitchen. She really listened to what we said about what we were looking for and then she added her own ideas to the mix and came up with some really novel ideas. For example, the kitchen ceiling had a soffit that had to stay because of plumbing in the ceiling and Lora came up with a very sophisticated soffit design that matched with the island below and extended the idea of soffits around the whole kitchen, turning a utilitarian thing into something inspired. (And she made a cool paper model of the soffit design so the contractors could build it!) And the cabinets — she took a really unconventional space and fitted cabinets into in very interested and unexpected ways that really made our kitchen pop."

They are enchanted with their new kitchen”

"Just wanted to say thanks again for the fantastic work you produced for my client on Valley Road. They are enchanted with their new kitchen, thanks to the attention to detail you gave the project from minute one.

This being our third kitchen together, I knew exactly what to expect and was not disappointed in any way. I know that I can always count on you to think through projects from the perspectives of the functionality of a cook and host, the aesthetics and resourceful inventiveness of a designer and the practicality of the builder and installer. And everything is done with a calm and confident demeanor which is reassuring to all!

I love being able to call on you as a resource extraordinaire for my clients. Thanks for all you bring to the table!"

— Jan Uhl


“First class and novel ideas”

"Lora Nix helped us with the planning of several rooms in our home over the last couple of years. These being our kitchen and master bath, and now she is helping us with the remodeling of a sewing room.

She comes prepared with questions for the client to help her draw up a suitable plan for whatever the client may want. 

She provided us first class and novel ideas for our projects and actual drawings that we could then pass along to the contractor and his crew. Lora always provided prompt pricing and samples and catalogs we needed for all our projects.

She’s easy to work with and brings lots of ideas for the projects."

— Linda Fuchs

"Wade and I want to express our thanks for our wonderful kitchen. You gave us such a great space. We went through a lot of different ideas before setteling on what we got. You were so great at listening to us and giving us what we wanted. Our space is not that big and so you had to work to fit what we wanted in and make it functionable. Thank you for getting someone to work with the counters we picked out. The enviroglass counters were a challange but we love the look and have had so many compliments on them. You worked till it was right just as you advertise and we are happy with it all. We have given your name to others and you even did the house across from us. I had told her you were great to work with and after several interviews with others she went with you too. We hope all is well with you and your family. We will continue to keep you all in our prayers. God bless "

"When I decided to remodel my kitchen, I was unsure of what I really wanted. When Monty Miller walked in, he immediately gave me several suggestions that I had never thought about. Working with Monty was instrumental in getting just the right design. I'm very pleased with the makeover and have had many compliments from family and friends."

– Dennie Hurst


Thank you for the wonderful hickory cabinets and all your hard work into getting our kitchen put back together. We thank you for coming in and helping fixing some minor issues with the drawers not closing properly.

Thank you

Lora has been involved with every house we haved purchased, and people know it has been alot, her style and unique ideas have given my homes a special look that transforms into "the sale". We all know the kitchen and baths sells a home, I would proudly recommend her and Monty on any project, big to small they tackel it as it was their own home.

Thanks for the sales, Kathy Snelling

"I LOVE TO COOK! I had no clue how dysfunctional our old kitchen design was until I started cooking in our new kitchen that Lora designed for us. Our project was a total kitchen renovation - along with a half bath - and she brought so much to the table with her experience and design expertise. She, Monty and Bill simply did an OUTSTANDING job in working with our general contractor so that everything really went smoothly. We love the quality of the Blue River Cabinetry we selected/she recommened and, being a REALTOR, I see alot of kitchen cabinets. The Blue River line is as good as any I've seen. I will recommend Lora and Nix Miller along with Blue River to anyone I know considering a kitchen/bath renovation."

Thanks Lora!

“Extremely patient and detail oriented

"We worked with Lora in 2009 on remodeling our kitchen. She is extremely patient and very detailed oriented. We were very happy with the results. She not only worked with our limited space to create a excellent layout for preparing food but also made the organization of the cabinets more efficient. We would highly recommend her expertise. Her knowledge of space, cabinet selection, appliances, counter top selection, hardware, and overall design are superb."

— John

Monty, thank you for coming out to do work on the kitchen. You have been the most courteous sales rep. The workman crew was courteous and cleaned the mess up and over all I would give them an A. 

– Mrs. Doris Clanney

"My husband and I had our kitchen completely remodeled in the summer of 2009.  Our kitchen is small in size (actual dimensions 14 x 12) and there was not a practical or cost effective way to addon additional space.  We were seeking a design that would provide us with the maximum in efficiency for the space, but also have a cosmetic appeal.  
We consulted with three different kitchen designers and ultimately selected the design and services of Monty Miller.  Monty's design layout providedus with an efficient use of the work space (with the 'triangle'  effect of the counter space, by the sink, stove & refrigerator) yet still had a sleek, elegant look to it.  We found working with Monty to be effortless and  he was able to steer us to types of materials/designs in cabinets and counter tops, that were in keeping with our taste and more importantly within our budget.  Monty never tried to 'hard sell' us into more expensive upgrades and always provided us with ample selections that met our price range.    

Monty was willing to go the extra mile for us, with his willingness to tirelessly suggest different options for us, when we had difficulty in findingdesigns or materials that met our vision for the kitchen; whether it was the selection of wood types for the cabinets or type of glass to use within the cabinets, the cabinet handles/drawer pulls or type of counter tops.  
We found Monty to be very professional and approachable while working with us and we have been very pleased with our new kitchen."

Monty Miller did a spectacular job designing and installing our kitchen and bath cabinetry for our new home! Monty Miller's years of experience and knowledge of products were extremely valuable and were instrumental to the success of the end product. The installers were very professional and did a particularly great job with all the trim. The icing on the cake is that our kitchen was awarded "Best Kitchen" in the 2009 Southern Indiana Parade of Homes! My husband and I could not be happier and we look forward to enjoying our beautiful, functional kitchen for years to come. My husband and I highly recommend Monty Miller for any new home or remodeling project."

Monty, we are really enjoying our new cabinets. It is great having the extra space and we love the color and quality of the cabinets. It was a pleasure working with you. You gave us lots of information, answered all our questions, but didn't pressure us to buy. You delivered when you said and returned all phone calls and emails. Thanks for a great job.
