Mary Donaruma has been surrounded by the world of designers and builders her entire life.
The essence of design was infused in her from the very beginning, starting with her dad, a cabinet maker and later a cabinet designer, who became her mentor and first employer.

Among the many important skills that she learned from her dad are that little details matter when remodeling and renovating kitchens, bathrooms, and other living spaces including precise measurements, the importance of checking clearances and maintaining work flow. She has honed the skills her dad taught her to this day bringing projects from vision to reality.

Early in her career, Mary discovered her own love for design, eye for detail and desire to create living spaces with original ideas and innovative solutions to solve her clients’ space challenges. In designing kitchens, she draws on her passion for cooking, understanding how a kitchen functions and should flow. Over time and through word of mouth, Mary’s reputation grew and in 2010 she started her own business, Cutting Edge Design, opening her studio in Mansfield, MA in January of 2014.

Serving the New England area for over 30 years, Mary is known for her attention to detail and listening to her clients’ wants and needs to properly design their unique spaces.

When not creating designs, ordering cabinets or assisting her clients, she enjoys cooking, gardening, and spending time with her family and 2 cats, Leeroy, and Nala.
