As a residential builder I have used many sub-contractors over the years. I, like most builders, have had good experiences and not so good experiences with the quality and knowledge of the companies I have contracted over that time. With so many choices of specialty contractors available it can be overwhelming, but when you find a good company with good people it makes the entire building process enjoyable. Classic Designs is that company! Stephanie has always gone above and beyond to make sure my clients are well informed regarding their choices and always staying within the budget that was allotted. Stephanie’s flexibility and availability to meet with myself, and each of my clients throughout the process is a true blessing. Classic Designs will always be my first and only choice! The professionalism of this company and especially Stephanie are second to none, making every client their top priority no matter if it’s a small remodel or whole home new construction. They treat every client as though they are their only client.
Being a builder, and being entrusted to help turn a family’s dreams into a reality, there is no greater peace than to be able to trust a company to treat your clients as well as you do. You can trust Classic Designs to do that. Whether I need suggestions on a particular project or already know what our choices are, I trust Stephanie and her company to satisfy my clients wishes and I have never been disappointed.
From dream to design to completion, in my opinion, you will not find a better company than Classic Designs Unlimited. And you will not find a more caring, thoughtful, and knowledgeable person to assist with all your design ideas than Stephanie Smith.

Stephanie and her team handled all the tile design and installation in our new beach home and did a superb job! Stephanie is a delightful person, full of great ideas and so easy to work with. We could not have asked for a better experience.
The tile work was done with top-level attention to detail. Any minor issues were dealt with immediately, and Stephanie was always prompt with her responses and follow up.
From initial meeting all the way through clean-up, the whole process was first class. We enthusiastically recommend Stephanie and her team!
My husband and I were referred to Classic Designs initially by our builder at Holden Beach. Stephanie did a fantastic job, giving us suggestions and recommendations for cabinets, marble, sinks, and tile, which stayed within our budgets. She coordinated with the builder and vendors to make sure everything was in place on time and to our liking. When the granite company added a backsplash which we did not want, she got it fixed! We enjoyed working with Classic Design so much, that we called her again to do a remodel of a kitchen in an older investment home. Again, Classic Design came through with flying colors, figuring out how to put modern cabinets in an old fashioned kitchen (working around old ductwork and odd placement of appliances). We would recommend this company wholeheartedly.
I have used Classic Designs Unlimited on several occasions and never been disappointed with the quality of the product or service. Stephanie Smith is an amazing designer who is very attentive to the needs of her clients. She has an amazing ability to take your ideas and create beautiful spaces that are unique to your home. Not only are her services convenient but they are very affordable. In fact, I have always felt that I didn't pay anymore to use this service then I would have if I had purchased and contracted out the jobs myself. I have always been able to count on Stephanie to follow through on what she promises promptly and professionally. I have recommended her many times and will continue to do so in the future. If I ever have another job to do, Classic Designs Unlimited will be the first company I call.
Stephanie Smith of Classic Designs Unlimited is well-versed and extremely knowledgeable in all the services and materials she has to offer from flooring and tile selections to well designed cabinetry layouts and design consultations. We work directly with one another on all of our construction projects and she’s very versatile, beyond helpful, and organized. Stephanie and her team always make sure installs are completed in a timely manner and that the quality of work is above the bar. No matter the size of the project, whether it be a complete bath overhaul or a new construction home, she always has all of the interior finishes coordinated, selected, and measured to a tee. All of our clients enjoy working with her and she really helps make the selection process an ease when it can become a bit overwhelming. Stephanie is always on top of her game and is certainly one of the best in the business.

When we built our house in North Myrtle Beach, our builder suggested we work with Stephanie Smith and her business Classic Designs Unlimited. We did and it was one of the smartest decisions we made! Three things stand out about Stephanie: Her attention to detail, Her commitment to her customers, and Her knowledge of the products and services which she offers. She was also a tremendous help to us with her design techniques and expertise in giving advice from paint colors to which type of flooring would be best for our lifestyle! We were living in another state and it was a big relief to have someone like Stephanie who took care of the cabinets, flooring, tile work and who made suggestions regarding the interior of our home! (We came to refer to her as Miz Wonderful!) If you are remodeling or building and you do not use Classic Designs Unlimited, then you are making a big mistake!

As a busy professional, it really helps to have a vendor that you can rely on. A real "go to" business. Stephanie Smith takes all the stress out of constructing a project from small to large. I recently designed a 6000 square foot house at the beach and her assistance and accommodating manner allowed me to put it together in an easy and timely manner. She has an excellent selection of tile , carpet and flooring and when there was a small glitch in the road , which there always is, she handled it like a pro. I will always use her for all my projects in that area.

My husband and I had a house built on Holden Beach Island. I would have said that Stephanie Smith was a huge part of the ease of that process, even while IN the process. However, looking back, I can see that would not be strong enough appreciation. We spent an entire day with Stephanie at the beginning of needing to pick out our tile, flooring, granite, cabinets, hardware. I did not even consider the many many small and large decisions that went along with that. Stephanie "knows her stuff" and seem to pull "out of the air" things that worked together that we would not even have considered. She is knowledgeable, listens, answers questions when you call or email, will offer suggestions if asked on products or decisions that are not in your "contract" with her, and oh, did I mention, she is FUN. She made any follow up needs work easily with our schedule and travel time (like going to the granite showroom). She checks in with her team to make sure the job is done right. And remember, she is fun. We are grateful!
When we met Stephanie, our first impression was that she was very personal, yet very professional. After explaining what we had been thru with our first contractor (who walked out on us and took our money) and how we would have to make a few cutbacks from our original ideas - she dug in and helped us design a beautiful kitchen, master bath and as well as other ideas throughout the rest of the interior. Stephanie knew how important this house was to us and worked diligently to give us what we wanted in the budget we gave her. She has the most amazing ideas and creative mind affording her the ability to work with any budget. Even after the job is over, Stephanie will still be there for you should you have questions. We would highly recommend Stephanie and Classic Designs for any design job you may have.

My experience with Classic Designs Unlimited Inc. and Stephanie Phipps-Smith was from beginning to end extremely positive. At the first meeting, I was impressed with the amount of inventory and samples that she had on site to see, feel, and touch. She had some ideas of her own about products that she recommended, but was also very receptive to any thing that I wanted different. She knew her product lines and had experienced installers for all of them. Her availability during my project was almost immediate if there was any question or if there was a problem. She worked well with everyone else on my project and was willing to make things right if something was not up to the standard that she required. Her knowledge and experience were invaluable to me. It goes without saying that her personality was geared toward getting it done, getting it right, and getting it finished. I do not mean to imply that there were not callbacks, but these were done usually in one day to fix what was not right. Her talent in balancing all the different balls in the air at one time and making sure that deliveries were on time and scheduling the installers were all of the things that went on behind the scene and I never was aware nor concerned. She has a very talented and professional cadre of "people" that she uses and depends on to do their very best. I absolutely love my home and the choices that I made with Stephanie. Even now, if there was any problem, I would feel certain it would be resolved easily and professionally. I highly recommend her company to anyone who is looking for as painless an experience as can be when designing any space.

Stephanie was recommended to us by our builder to help with cabinet and tile choices. WOW! How delighted we were to discover she was more than cabinets and tile. Stephanie helped us with paint colors, lighting, faucets, granite, shutters, blinds and she designed an entertainment center...all while keeping us on budget! (Did I mention she was a miracle worker!!). She took my vision and turned it into exactly what I wanted. Her integrity, enthusiasm, attention to detail, hands on approach, as well as a terrific design style, made her wonderful to work with. She made what was for me a daunting task, easy and seamless. Building a house long distance is not easy, but shortly into out journey, it was just a phone call to Stephanie and it was done! We trusted her judgement completely and was never disappointed. With Stephanie's help and guidance, I would absolutely do it again!
