We do understand that part of the decision making process that a client undergoes before embarking on a kitchen remodel, and sometimes an entire re-design of the interior space, is to get a few pricing from different Companies. Our process is a lot different. We really dig in with a complete analysis and study of your space before we come up with the right design, scale and cost.

This can sometimes take from a few days or up to 2 weeks. We put a lot of time into making sure we recommend the right layout for that particular home, coupled with our clients needs and wants.

One of our pre-qualification steps is a small retainer which can be anywhere from as low as $1,000.00 to about $2,500.00. The retainer is non refundable. However, we do apply the retainer towards the cost of Cabinets when you place the order.

There can be additional fees associated with your project depend on how extensive a renovation that you are undertaking. If you are adding a bathroom, extending the house, relocating windows, opening up load bearing walls etc, then we would also have to figure in for filing, stamping and Architectural fees for your local town.

Give us a call and let us help you navigate through all of these complications, so that we can get your dream remodel completed just the way you want it, and even better yet,  beyond your wildest expectation!

For every one and every situation, the answer will be different. This answer is hinged only and directly on these two things; (1) the scope of work and (2) the material selection for that particular project. Stock cabinet gets to your home faster while custom can get there up to 3 months after you approved the designs for production.

What I can tell you is this, be prepared for an average remodel to take at least 6-12 weeks. Sorry to tell you, but it will not be an HGTV 24 hrs transformation.

Architects and Kitchen designers are two completely different skill set. There are instances where the skills overlap. There are some Architects  who know about kitchen design and vice versa, but in most cases they are trained differently and has different goals. An Architect is trained to look at the structure as a whole and how the structure functions in relation to the home, while a Kitchen designer is primarily trained in looking at the kitchen and how it relates to the rest of the interior space around it. Your ideal approach is a kitchen Designer who works with you first to put all of your ideas on paper, then over to an architect if needed, who will make it ready for the building department in your town. Sometimes depending on the scope of your the project, you will need only the kitchen designer and other times you would need  both working together.

As trained designers, we are taught very early on that each space in the home is inter-connected, so changing or updating one room, especially now that the open concept kitchens are trending, will undoubtedly affect the other room around it.

Each space has to be functional and practical on its own and at the same time, needs to connect to the other. The answer is therefore, yes. We handle other rooms in our designs, sometime, we have to reconfigure the entire interior of the home to make the design work. Laundry, Living, bedrooms, hallways, dining rooms etc are all taken into consideration when we design.

Yes, Yes and Yes! , but it really depends on the size and scope of the project.

Design takes on a life of its own pretty fast! its like a living breathing thing. It’s the sum of all parts that somehow has to come together and form this one cohesive beautiful space at the end. Hrs and Hrs of planning, designs, engineering, mechanical, troubleshooting and most of all, the execution of the project, all has to come together to make things work. So, yes, we work with different professionals in the different discipline in our industry to make sure that the client gets the end result they need.
