Getting Started

FIVE Easy Steps to Simplify the Kitchen/Bath Design Process

  1. Contact Us
    Schedule a jobsite visit for your complimentary room measure. Project overview and budget parameters will be discussed at this meeting. A short Project Planner should be filled out to help define your wants and needs and help us learn about your likes and dislikes.
  2. Your Initial Design Consultation
    Your first design consultation is complimentary and one of our professional designers will prepare a preliminary design plan based upon the information you provided on the Project Planner. This plan will include a floor plan and elevations which will describe proposed solutions and that form the basis of discussion to best determine the direction of the design. A quote will also be presented for review and discussion which will enable you to see how the proposed design fits into your overall project budget. At this point you may decide to continue on with the project or leave with prospective drawings of your proposed design.
  3. Fine Tuning Your Design
    With your payment of a retainer fee, your designer will continue to work with you to refine your final design. Once the right design solution and budget for your project have been determined, your designer can start to fine tune the design. During this step of the design process, all the details such as appliances, cabinet accessories, and moldings are determined. The actual working drawings, elevations and 3D perspectives will be created for your approval. In addition, pricing for the project will be provided.
  4. Your Agreement Includes
    Upon our mutually signed agreement, your designer will create your design package, which includes the entire scope of your project. Combining your design ideas with our design and installation expertise, the design package includes your product selections, cabinet specifications, final working floor plan, dimensional elevations, and two or three perspectives of your project. All drawings are prepared adhering to the guidelines prescribed by the National Kitchen & Bath Association, ensuring the highest standard of quality. It reflects our focus on details and our commitment to open communication among all parties involved in your project.
  5. Installation
    From the simplest re-do to the most complex kitchen or bath design and installation, selecting new cabinets can be overwhelming. That is why our knowledge and experience is your best resource. Our experienced installation teams are courteous and respectful installers, who will ensure your new kitchen is installed correctly and to your satisfaction.
