First: Take advantage of our FREE, In-store Design Consultation. 

During this consultation, show us what inspires you. We can discuss ideas, costs, and help you establish a budget plan for your project. Upon your visit you will have an opportunity to browse our showroom to see an extensive sampling the various collections we offer in high-end, mid-range, and budget. Our selections represent the highest quality, best designed cabinetry, appliances, and countertop offerings in the industry. When you design your kitchen, bath, or other room with experienced designers the result is an elevated design that is both aesthetically beautiful and functional.  In regards to new construction, it is helpful to bring in your plans and contact Kitchen Designs early in the process so that we can collaborate with you, your builder, and your architect as your plans are being drawn. We find that the sooner we join your team, the more effective we can be in designing attractive, functional kitchens and baths and determine realistic budgets for the quality rooms you deserve. If you are remodeling an existing space, bring in your room’s measurements and pictures so we can give you a rough idea what to expect.

Second: Design Retainer – Take it to the next level by choosing Program Package 1 or 2. 

Your design retainer is ultimately applied to the total cost of your kitchen remodeling project. Throughout the design process, you will be provided with various drawings of your kitchen, which include detailed floor plans, perspective drawings, and elevations. You can take the plans home if you opt for Program Package 2.

The Design Process

Step 1: Professional Design Consultation - Conceptual Phase

 

We begin with an in depth consultation about your lifestyle needs. We will discuss who cooks in your kitchen and how many people cook at the same time. We will have a conversation about how you entertain and help you select your appliances and plumbing fixtures. You will show us your ideas so we can understand your aesthetic preferences, and we will help you establish a working budget needed to complete your dream kitchen, bath or other room.

 

Step 2: Professional Design Consultation - Establishing a Budget

Once a well conceived floor plan concept is selected, we re-price your project, making revisions to both budget and design concept, keeping the kitchen that you love from costing more than you can live with. We bring our electricians, plumbers, hvac contractors, as well as other trade professional we may need to finalize your budget

 

Step 3: Professional Design Consultation - Detailed Design Planning

During this phase, we create detailed drawings of your project. These include floor plans, elevations, moulding details, plumbing and electrical locations for appliances, and in-cabinet and under-cabinet lighting recommendations. We make all edits to the design plans for your final approval.

 

Step 4: Finish and Door Sample Approved

If required, we have a custom door sample made for your approval.

 

Step 5: Fabrication and Schedule

A  construction schedule is set, and we have the next few weeks to finalize your selections with you including countertops, backslashes, and hardware.  We are always available to help you with everything.

 

Step 6: Project Management

Your project is planned out from the first day to the last. We will provide you with a written calendar letting you know who will be on the job every day. Our field supervisor and field team support staff, are always available to assist you or answer your questions. Your designer will be on site as well to answer all installation questions and check on the job’s progress.

When we are not your general contractor,  we coordinate with your contractor, architect, and/or design team. We make sure all the mechanical requirements for appliances and under-cabinet lighting are in the proper place as well as coordinate our schedule with your contractor.

Step 7: Installation

After 30+ years remodeling kitchens, we have perfected a process of coordinating the logistics to most efficiently organize each part and piece during your installation. This is where our expertise comes into play and is what we are known for. Our trusted reputation has been built on getting every detail exactly right for our clients.

 

“Planning well for your home remodeling project will give you the fully functioning, unique result you are looking for. Good design and well thought out decisions will result in an exceptional living space that is in line with your vision and lifestyle and will provide you maximum enjoyment and functionality.” … Ken Kelly
