How We Design
1 Designing your kitchen or bath is FUN! When we first sit down with you, we want to know what your ideas are, how you want to live in your space, what your current layout or cabinet design is lacking… all so we understand how to best service your needs!
2 From simply adding a spice rack, pull-out shelves or trash bin – to changing walls and re-configuring spaces for a completely new kitchen or bath (we do offices, closets and garages too!), we consider your ideas and budget, add in our recommendations, to come up with a fresh, new living space for you.
3 To start the design process, we take detailed measurements and pictures of the existing space. Whether you are here full-time, part-time or planning to move here, we communicate with you by phone and email with design ideas, questions and layouts. For new construction, we will work closely and smoothly with your contractor.
Some important questions we might ask you for a kitchen project:
- How much do you cook? Do you work with others in your kitchen?
- Do you entertain while you are preparing a meal in your kitchen?
- Show me what you cook with – so we can be sure to create easy storage places for it.
(Have you ever had a cabinet into which you could not fit your skillets through the opening? Frustrating! We are experienced designers and know to plan around these drawbacks.)
4 The selection process is then started with you so we can begin pricing. We pay close attention to your budget constraints. We try to offer more than one option for your comparison and choice. We have a reputation for honest, fair pricing and building great relationships with our customers.
5 The building phase is planned for minimal disruption to your home or office, especially if you are in it at the time! Cabinetry is ordered and built in our warehouse, appliances, sinks and fixtures are delivered to you. Our aim is to do the work in your home or office quickly and smoothly, without lengthy wait-times. Again, we keep you apprised of the job progress by phone, email and pictures.
