Client via HouzzReally enjoy working with Janice and her staff. They helped me totally renovate my kitchen, sitting room, dining room, master bathroom and bedroom. She really listened to what I wanted and gave me a home that suited my budget, style and personality. I always felt this was a partnership, not a designer doing her own "thing." She has an amazing eye for color, and her finishing touches are what really make the room special.
Client via HouzzI highly endorse Janice Hanks and the entire Next Level Austin team! This is the second home that we have worked with Janice and her team to design, and they don't disappoint. Both homes had very different styles. The detail, creative recommendations, color palettes, selected furnishings, lighting fixtures, etc. were "spot on" with my vision and made our home come alive. The Next Level team managed my project to our tight timelines, provided additional organization services that I could not have done without, and made our home stunning. I would recommend Janice and the Next Level team to anyone looking for a quality designer with superb taste.
West Austin Properties via HouzzIn our real estate business, we use Next Level Austin to consult with our clients before they sell a home and to prepare it for the market, or with our buyer clients to see the design potential of a home they are about to purchase. Janice and her team have excellent taste and can oversee any design project, large or small. Many of my clients use Next Level to personalize their new homes. They can do everything from suggesting paint colors and ordering new flooring to a complete redesign. They will even oversee the project from start to finish. I highly recommend Next Level Austin.
Ted S. via HouzzI can't say enough about Next Level Austin. I looked at many interior designers when we moved to Austin. I instantly fell in love with Janice, Dana, and her team. They were very professional, and I felt like she immediately captured the vision of what I wanted. Janice was able to give me many options on how to keep the cost down without sacrificing the quality I was looking for. Another thing that really helped me was that she was able to bring the items to my house, and I was able to see what it would look like in my house before I even purchased the item. I originally hired her to design my living room. I loved the finished look so much that we went on to redesign my dining room, my kitchen, my entryway, my staircase, and we are currently working on the flooring in my master bedroom, stairs, and upstairs landing. I love working with Janice and Dana. I feel like they know how to design with class and sophistication. I plan on using Next Level Austin for years to come.
Laurie M. Rich, Education Policy AdvisorThis project was not my first renovation rodeo, but it was the biggest. Every room in the house was gutted, and I couldn't be more pleased with the final outcome. There is no way this project could have been successfully completed without Janice. We started "as good turned into great" because of Janice's attention to my needs and the needs of the project as a whole. There's no doubt it will be my comfortable, functional, and beautiful refuge for years to come.
Tim Cross, ArchitectI always love to get Janice involved early in my design process. At the conceptual plan stage, her quick and knowledgeable insights about how a house will be used and seen by both residents and guests are invaluable and save both myself and my clients time finding that "sweet spot" where everything works wonderfully. Early selection of finish materials helps reduce later plan changes needed to accommodate the dimensional and structural requirements of different finish choices. Janice is extremely talented, practical, and fun to work with, and the sooner I can get her involved in my projects, the better they will look and work when finished.
Diana Zuniga, Real Estate DeveloperJanice Hanks is the ultimate professional. She has impeccable taste and works hard to deliver exciting designs within the client's budget. There has been a noticeable rise in sales at Spring Condominium since she gave our models her magic touch.
Amy W. - Realtor via YelpJanice Hanks shows up at your door as a classy, highly sought-after professional designer, but I am convinced that she wears a superhero costume underneath that business attire!
Where do I even start? I have worked with Janice on numerous occasions in homes, from paint colors and staging to "whole house" top-to-bottom projects. She has been a game changer for my business and my own home. I am a realtor, and when I bring Janice into a listing, I assist my sellers in selling higher and faster than the other homes in the neighborhood. Anything she touches turns to art, and she has left my clients speechless by her results.
On a recent listing, I sat down with an amazing client who said, "We hate this house. Get us out of here". The home needed a new roof, new paint, and updating everywhere and would be considered a "handyman's special" if we listed it. And we had a very small remodel budget. We also needed to sell this home at a higher price to get the seller what she needed out of it. I immediately called Next Level Austin. Janice picked out roof shingles, exterior paint, interior paint, staging, door handles, and everything in between. With my listing strategy and Janice's magic, we were able to list high and receive three full-priced offers immediately. The only "hiccup" was when the seller fell back in love with her home after she was under contract with a buyer. Janice is that good! I promised her we could use Janice on her new home when she invests in one, and we both got excited. Working with Janice is a blast!
I did the same thing at my house. Having the wrong "feel" in your home is frustrating. I called Janice in and did whatever she said. I trust her this much. My home feels like a showcase, and my investment was less than half of what I expected it to be.
Janice is the best in her field and works with your budget. Working with her pays itself back twenty fold. I tell my clients, when we are focused on their bottom line, "We cannot afford NOT to call Janice. And I mean it."
Pansy F. via YelpIt sounds impossible to have a wonderful kitchen remodel while you are living in your home, doesn't it? However, that is what happened to us when we hired Janice Hanks of Next Level Austin. Janice was in on every decision and listened to us carefully. Her ideas were better than what we could come up with! We are still so inspired by our kitchen, and Janice's thoughtful and creative touches are everywhere. The work was done timely and considerately. We appreciated how Janice took time with us and listened to us, all while never being late for a meeting. Janice's creativity blended with practicality is unique. Plus she is fun to work with! She will not disappoint!
Lisa via YelpI can't say enough wonderful things about Janice Hanks of Next Level Austin. Next Level Austin specializes in interior (and exterior) design in home and office remodeling as well as in new construction. My husband and I worked with Janice four years ago with a complete remodel of the 1980s home we bought in central Austin, which had "great bones" but was very dated and needed a total overhaul. (Peach colored padded raw silk walls in the formal dining room, anyone?)
Janice was involved in every decision--from paint colors to flooring (new wood floors, tile and carpet throughout the entire house), lighting, plumbing fixtures, new granite countertops, down to helping me select new cabinet hardware for the entire house. The kitchen was a major part of the project--walls were moved, an island added, new appliances, new granite countertops, and many other changes. We had a tight timeline, since we were still living in our previous house, which we had already sold, and the buyers wanted to move in. We worked with a fabulous contractor and between Janice and our contractor, we got the entire project completed in less than three months.
We updated the three bathrooms, but we left the old, small shower and bathtub (which we never used) in the master bathroom. Late last year, we decided that we were ready to do a total remodel of the master bathroom, with the main goal to get rid of the old shower and turn the bathtub space into a large, walk-in shower. We contacted Janice again and worked with her to design the new bathroom (the old bathroom was completely gutted). As with the prior remodel, she thought of wonderful little touches that really made the new bathroom gorgeous; things I would not have thought of. She helped us select the paint and tile and made sure everything pulled together seamlessly. Every time I walk into it, I can't believe how beautifully it turned out!
Janice is truly gifted, and her ability to choose colors and textures is phenomenal. She is able to look at a dated house or room and visualize what it "can" look like -- something I have a hard time doing. She works with her clients to understand their tastes and style, and she then pulls it all together to create a space that is perfect for the client, whether the client's taste is classic, modern, or something in between.
I would recommend Janice Hanks and Next Level Austin to anyone who needs assistance with design. Check out the website; there are many gorgeous photos of her work (including some of my kitchen and new bathroom!).

Mark K. via EmailFirst, THANKS so much for the amazing progress and work completed to date on our condo. We were completely amazed and 100% thrilled to see our new home when we arrived on Saturday. We feel like we have an entirely new home to enjoy with family and friends now, and we are so excited to see the plans. Your hard work results in such an amazing transformation!!
Ash via EmailI hosted a dinner yesterday for a bunch of my friends (my first party in the house). Everyone raved about the furniture. The painting in the dining room pretty much "wowed" people when they entered. I think most people said the painting was their favorite, followed by the dining room, and then the living room. People also said that the living room chair added a lot of character to the room and that it needed to be seen in the context of both of the rooms, and that's when it made perfect sense. I wanted to pass on the compliments to you, as you and your team deserve the praise. The six place setting in the dining room was perfect, like you said it would be. People spent the bulk of the evening sitting around the table and lingering after dessert, which is how I wanted it to be.
Meg via EmailWe are finished with the "project" and are very pleased with the way everything turned out. Thank you all for stepping in and making the unexpected remodel happen so quickly and so nicely. We truly appreciate the quality of the work, some creative work-arounds, and everyone's helpful attitudes to make it all happen.
