About Us


Built-In by Design was founded by Heather English simply because she believed there was an industry need for a dedicated, trustworthy, all-encompassing approach while providing superior service with first quality materials and excellent craftsmanship within an affordable budget.

The Built-In by Design Team prides themselves on their expertise in cabinetry, but more importantly on their ‘personal’ approach to each project they oversee. Their innate ability to truly ‘listen’ and get to know their clients on a one-on-one basis allows them to understand their clients daily needs, in turn providing them with a space that is not only aesthetically pleasing, but is fully functional and tailored to their day-to-day activities.



Heather has an innate eye-for-design, and a passion for creating beautiful spaces. Born into a family of entrepreneurs, and finding her love of cabinetry design, Built-In by Design was created. 

Raised in the suburbs of Atlanta, Georgia, Heather later earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Fashion Merchandising from The University of Georgia. She was awarded the title of Miss Georgia USA in 2002 and dedicated that time in her life to philanthropy focused on children with life-threatening illnesses and special needs.

Her career path took her to Los Angeles and New York, where she gained experience in business and design, quickly expanding her horizons in these major markets. Finding a balance of creativity and function while working with clients to establish and create their most personalized spaces, Heather found her niche in kitchen and bath design. She began working with Distinguished Kitchens & Baths in 2015 as a Design Consultant and quickly became the Showroom Manager. Heather founded Built-In by Design in 2019.

“My job is to find a balance of aesthetics and function and make it work for your home, within your budget, so you have a space you love coming home to.”
