Imagine the car industry had evolved like the remodeling industry. In this imagined alternative car industry you have decided to buy a new car, but first you have to buy a car chassis. Then you have to go to the engine dealer. Your next stop is the tire dealer and after that the upholstery dealer, the stereo dealer, the car computer dealer, and on and on until you’re ready for your final stop. Finally, have to go to a car contractor who has agreed to take all these different parts you’ve bought and put them together.
Wouldn’t that be a logistical nightmare? It would be such a convoluted and drawn out process that there would be plenty of chances for something to go horribly wrong.
Now imagine you’ve decided to remodel your kitchen, but first you have to got to a floor dealer. Then you have to go to the kitchen cabinet dealer. Your next stop is the appliances dealer and after that the countertop dealer, the lighting dealer, the kitchen island dealer, and on and on until you’re ready for your final stop. Finally, you have to go to a contractor who will take all these different parts you’ve bought and put them together.
Wouldn’t that be just as much of a logistical nightmare? The process of getting your kitchen remodeled would be convoluted, drawn out, and there would be too many chances for something to go horribly wrong.
Our kitchen designers will interview you to determine the priorities in your kitchen remodel. We’ll ask, for example, how many cooks there are in your family, if your kids want to learn to cook, and how often you entertain guests. The answers to these questions, and others, are all important for us to know in order to design a kitchen that fits your lifestyle. Kitchen appliances are an integral part of your kitchen’s design. You can trust our designers to make objective recommendations based on what you want out of your kitchen.
When people buy appliances they sometimes don’t take the “mechanical rough-in” step into consideration. The importance of rough-in plans, the plans for where pipes and cables should be brought through the wall in order to be attached to your appliances, can’t be overstated. Rough-in plans should be drawn while still in the planning and budgeting stage of the kitchen design process because it determines where your appliances can be installed. When appliances are bought elsewhere they often don’t match the rough-in or niche requirements of the kitchen design, creating an expensive conflict. We’ll draw out your kitchen design to the exact specifications of the appliances you choose and ensure that your kitchen remodel goes smoothly.
Each of our designers have had specialized training in Kitchen Design through NKBA, SEN or ASID, not only in style and structure, but in function and arrangement as well.
