Does your kitchen design date back to the 1980’s? Is it all around dysfunctional for the way your family lives? Or perhaps closed-off and dark? Fear not, we will be walking you through this simple process.
We will be taking you through the entire process of a full or partial kitchen design remodel and what to expect during your project.
Step 1: Initial Discovery & Consultation
The first step in our typical kitchen design process is a phone call or discovery call. During this step we will discuss with you the scope of your project over the phone and whether or not we would be a good fit. This can be determined by discussing things such as your desired deadline, our availability for your project, as well as your estimated budget at this time.
Step 2: Design & Project Plan
The next step in the process is a site visit and measure where we meet in person. We typically take detailed photos and notes of your kitchen as well as measurements for quoting purposes. It is best if all decision-makers in the home are present at this meeting.
Step 3: Approval & Project Launch
A few weeks later we will present you with exciting concept boards for your kitchen design based on our detailed discussions and inspiration from various sources. After your approval of the concept boards, a retainer is received, and we begin designing floor plans. After the design plans are finalized (typically a few weeks later), the ordering of products begins, and contractors are booked.
Step 4: Project Management
Throughout your project, our job is to be your advocate during the process. We manage your project by overseeing contractors, tracking the delivery of the product and receiving shipments. We also inspect the work of the contractors and typically address any issues before you even notice. Our job is to give you complete peace of mind during your entire kitchen remodel.
Step 5: Kitchen Installation
Towards the end of the project, your appliances and other furnishings will be delivered. We take care of removal of trash and other miscellaneous items. It is also at this time we start accessorizing your kitchen, using items you already have and also introducing cool new ones, with your approval, of course. We like to make the space ready for you to just walk in the door.
Reveal day is perhaps the most exciting day of all! After all, this is THE day you have been dreaming of forever and all of the “firsts” ahead. The first time you get to see your completed gourmet kitchen. The first time you make a meal on your new stove. The first items you start placing in your fridge. AND the first party you host where your guests get to see your new space! It’s time to start your celebration journey 🙂
A new kitchen can change your life in ways you had never thought of. If you are struggling with inefficiency or detest the overall look of your kitchen, think about how much joy you will feel in a kitchen that is efficient and beautiful. The latest home upgrade is to that of a “smart kitchen” and the technology will blow you away. I encourage you to reach out to the many design sources with photos out there like Pinterest, design blogs, Parade of Homes or Houzz, for some inspiration. When you are ready for an exciting and beautiful update, we can assist you!
