GET IN TOUCH…
Contact us by phone or email to schedule your complementary consultation. The initial consultation can take place at our Design Studio or in your home at your convenience.
If your project is new construction, we suggest that you bring a copy of your blueprints or email them prior to the consultation and if your project is a renovation, an in-home consultation is suggested as this will allow us to view your space to help determine style, function and to maximize space usage. Here, we will also take detailed measurements.
SHARE YOUR VISION…
Collect or save photos of spaces that appeal to you, colors you prefer, and any ideas or items you would like to incorporate in your new space. Many of our clients save inspiration photos from houzz.com and pinterest.com – the modern day version of ripping pages from a magazine. We encourage you to share with us your ‘Pinterest Boards’ or ‘Houzz Ideabooks’, or simply email us any inspiration photos that you have saved as this information on your style and ideas allows us to provide you with the best possible design. At your request, we are happy to set up a private Houzz Ideabook or Pinterest Board to collaborate together and share inspiration.
Consider the following suggestions and questions;
List what doesn’t function well in your current space and what you would most like to change
List and prioritize your ‘must haves’ and your ‘would like to haves’ for your new space
List of any unique items needing special storage requirements
Do you require more storage space?
Do you need more counter space?
Are you keeping or replacing your appliances and fixtures?
Establish a realistic idea for your budget
We believe that the key to a perfect design plan starts with a proper analysis of your needs, wants and style. We have designed a detailed Planning Questionnaire to help us establish these details for the most beneficial planning and design of your new space.
Within 7 days from the initial consultation, we will prepare and deliver 3D design concept renderings using the latest design software for you to visualize the possibilities of your new space. Together we will discuss and fine tune the design and details, making necessary revisions until the design is perfectly tailored to your wishes. Your design will follow NKBA (National Kitchen and Bath Association) access and planning guidelines. It will also optimize safety, functionality, traffic flow and serve any unique physical requirements. It will truly be custom designed to your exact requirements, dreams and desires. Once we have a good concept of the design for your new space, you will receive a detailed quote for the total cost of your project. If necessary we will refine or modify the project details to better fit within a established budget.
We will explore, discuss, and coordinate the options and selections from the array of cabinetry materials, styles, finishes and colors, as well as countertops and decorative hardware. If you have any flooring or paint samples, please bring these along as well.
Once your ultimate design and budget are in sync, we will take final measurements of the space and any necessary adjustments will be made to your design. For new builds, this generally happens at the roof-tight stage, once your interior walls are framed, but before your plumber and electrician begin work. We will also mark out for any electrical or plumbing requirements, as well as the location of any islands or peninsulas, allowing your electrician to center any lighting required in these areas.
Once all measurements have been confirmed, the agreement has been signed and the deposit has been received, your order will be processed. We will contact you to schedule your installation once we have a confirmed date for cabinet delivery. Your project will be professionally, precisely and efficiently installed according to your plan. If you have chosen quartz or granite countertops, a digital template will be completed after the cabinets have been installed as this ensures complete accuracy. The quartz or granite countertops will be installed within 10 business
days from the date of template.
Upon the completion of your project and all final touches, we will ensure that that you are absolutely satisfied. We stand behind our workmanship on every project and will follow-up with a Client Satisfaction Survey after your project is complete and, upon your permission, we will take photos of your finished project to add to our portfolio.
