WHAT WE DO

The Elements is a full service design firm and retail store located in Storm Lake, Iowa. Owner and lead designer, Kathy Sorbe, believes the best interiors reflect the life, style-and lifestyle- of their residents. The three-time, Best of Houzz winners drive the sometimes-complex design process from start to finish, whether starting from a blank slate or overseeing a renovation. The design team can help with simple questions like paint colors and room layout to large scale construction and remodels.
