Our Process:

1. Visit Our Showroom or Call to Make an Appointment:

We understand the importance of finding the right designer and remodeling firm. By scheduling your complimentary design consultation, our certified designers can give you the personal attention you deserve, and the confidence you need to place your project in our hands.

2. Prior to the Meeting:

Gather pictures or other materials that inspire you and establish an investment range that works for you and your family. Photos or references provide crucial insight as to your personal tastes, and a clear budget allows for an expeditious design process, as well as proper allocation of priorities and materials.

3. Home Appointment:

One of our certified designers will visit your home to evaluate your space and get a feel for your lifestyle—both key steps to creating initial concepts and approximating a budget as well as implementing the most functional and individual design characteristics into your future plans.

4. Showroom Appointment:

Equipped with various material samples and examples of different construction approaches, the showroom provides an excellent setting for your designer to help you visualize your new space as well as explain your refined budget proposal. If the overall concept and estimate align with what you had anticipated, the next step is to retain Designer Kitchens, Inc. and your designer. Upon collection of the retainer, your designer will continue to hone your design and specify products within your discussed budget range. The timing of this process depends greatly upon decisiveness.

5. Signing the Contract and Ordering:

Once perfected, your designer will present your finalized plans and a detailed description of your materials, lead-times, and scope of labor for you to sign. Upon collection of your initial deposit, your designer will order your materials, beginning with the products bearing the longest lead-times first. Your designer will typically schedule your project to begin the week after your materials have shipped.

Design-Only projects mimic the first four steps of a Full-Service project, at a per-hour rate. At the completion of work, your designer will hand off your complete design binder, enabling you to communicate with your contractor and other tradespeople.
