We are a dedicated team of Designers who specialize in Design, Project Management and Mid to High End Custom Cabinetry for any room in a home. Such as Kitchens, Baths, Entertainment centers, Laundry rooms, Libraries, Fireplaces, Offices, Custom Closets and complete home remodels. We are members and Certified Kitchen Designers (CKD) with the National Kitchen and Bath Association (NKBA)
Below, we'll walk you through the typical steps of a project. If you would like more information about the design process and what to expect, you may want to check out our Kitchen Talk seminar, free of charge.
The first step in beginning the design process is to have us come out to your home for the Initial Consultation (or you can bring in measurements of the space to one of our showrooms.) If you are doing a new construction the first meeting will be in our showroom. At the Initial Consultation we will take measurements, pictures and walk the space with you. This is a fact gathering phase to begin our concepts.
At the second meeting, we will present our professional concepts and estimates. We will discuss your investment parameters and refine the design. We will then customize your door style, finish, interiors materials and accessories. We will make recommendations for appliances, surface materials, contractors and installers.
At this point you have only paid the Initial Consultation fee of $100, which will be applied to your cabinetry cost, we have presented a design, you have met with a contractor and we have given you the total costs for your remodel. The next step, if you decided to proceed, is the design retainer phase where we begin drawing the CAD detailed set of plans, which all third parties will be working from, and we write your custom cabinet order. We finalize all costs for cabinetry, counters, appliances, fixtures, and contracting.
You also have the option to purchase the appliances, countertops, and all hardware with us and at a discounted price. We project manage all aspects of the remodel for you, ensuring everything is done in a timely manner and up to our high standards.
We then create detailed drawings for all of your custom cabinets for the manufacturer; our designs do not use out-of-the-box cabinets (such as found in big hardware warehouses). We customize the cabinets, door style and finish to your unique taste, without drastically increasing the costs. We also supply the contractor and all third parties with your Appliance packet, with all electrical requirements, plumbing and electrical locations and installation instructions for your appliances.
Once we have a delivery date for your cabinetry, we determine the best time to begin demolition so that you are not without a working space any longer than needed. We are constantly at the jobsite and in close contact with all third parties. One of our team members will also manage your delivery, we personally check off all cabinets and parts as they come off the truck to ensure nothing is missing or damaged. Our cabinetry is finished out of state and comes ready to be installed right away by our skilled installers.
We are at the jobsite throughout the installation and at your countertop template. Our customer service does not end after your project is complete; we stay in touch to ensure you are happy living in your new home.
Please contact us to discuss our process further or join us at our Kitchen Talk seminar, where we will give you a personal tour of our studio, we will discuss the elements of a successful remodel, the latest in factory built custom cabinetry, counter surfaces and appliances, as well as costs, scheduling and working with a designer. Come for coffee and leave with a better understanding of how to create your dream
