a little bit about us & our philosophy
Jo Meacham has been creating kitchens for distinctive residences throughout the Oklahoma City area for over 24 years. A graduate from the University of Oklahoma with a Master’s in architecture, Jo spent over 20 years as a historic preservation consultant. In the late 1990’s she was offered the opportunity to renovate a large home in Heritage Hills. This first project led to the creation of a kitchen remodeling company with expertise with historic homes. Since then, Urban Kitchens has expanded to design kitchens and baths in homes of all ages. Jo’s philosophy in kitchen and bath design was influenced by her preservation background. Originally known as Vintage Kitchens, the company rebranded in 2010 as Urban Kitchens.
Over 4 years ago Neila Crank-Clements joined the firm as a partner. With over 10 years of experience remodeling historic homes and building and designing new homes for historic districts in Oklahoma City, Neila brings the expertise required for all sizes of projects. Over the past several years Urban Kitchens portfolio includes a number of kitchen + master bath projects, whole house remodels, and additions.
As Urban Kitchens continued to grow, the company was joined by Megan Crowe. Megan works with clients to design projects, select materials and serve as a project manager. She is also the design studio manager for the company.
Urban Kitchens has completed kitchens, bathrooms, and whole house renovations all over the Oklahoma City metropolitan area, including Edmond, Norman, Enid, Clinton and just recently a project in the Texas panhandle. Our design studio is in the heart of the city at 4205 North Western.
Each house, neighborhood and city are unique with distinctive architecture and culture. Our clients want kitchens to stand the test of time and we believe designing a kitchen that complements the existing architecture is the answer.

Tackling a whole home renovation is not for the faint of heart. This is a project that for many people will be a once-in-a-lifetime experience. This typically means that most homeowners are in a position of “you don’t know what you don’t know.” In other words, you will have a general idea that there are a lot of details involved but won’t have any idea just how many until you start your project.
Fortunately, we’ve worked with many homeowners on their whole home renovation projects, and know just how many details go into getting a whole home renovation right. We love planning and designing and building out our clients’ dream renovations, and over the years have developed a general whole home renovation checklist to help our clients understand the process better.
Certainly being a specialist for kitchens and bathroom renovations brings important experience for whole house renovations. We also partner with a local structural contractor for projects involving additions are new builds.Learn More About Home Remodels
