Our Most Frequently Asked Questions
Kitchens are like most anything else that you purchase – the costs are entirely dependent on the price of the materials chosen and the complexity of the job. It’s good to keep in mind that a remodeled kitchen or bath is an investment that will increase the value of your home. If you are not sure where to start, we can meet at your home for an on-site consultation and measure, and offer suggestions for your remodeled space based on our experience. We offer cabinetry at many different price levels to fit your budget and can give you the best design within that budget.
We are building a new home, is it possible to plan our kitchen layout from our architect’s drawings?
Yes, planning the space early on from your architect’s drawing is a smart idea. The earlier you start to plan from the beginning building phase the better, as changes early on are easier and less costly to make. This is especially true when considering window placements, electrical outlets, wiring for appliances and plumbing lines, as these trades need to have all their items in place well before kitchen cabinetry gets installed.
A small job will take less time to complete; larger or more complex jobs take more time. There are three phases to the completed project — Phase One is the Design Phase, which can move along very quickly or more slowly depending on the client’s situation and time frame; it could take several weeks to several months to make a final decision on the layout, style and finish of their cabinetry. In addition to the cabinet choices, decisions on the countertops, appliances, backsplash and flooring also need to be selected. Once those decisions have been made, we can order the cabinets and Phase Two begins. Phase Two is the cabinet leadtime which varies depending on the manufacturer but typically takes 5 to 8 weeks for delivery, and contractors can be scheduled once the delivery is set. Phase Three is the installation and completion stage. From the start of the demolition, through renovation, to a fully working kitchen is typically 4 to 6 weeks. Times vary based on the complexity of the job, we will give you a more specific time frame based on your specific job requirements.
For a bathroom remodel, our services are limited to design layout, cabinetry, and countertops. We do not sell plumbing fixtures and will need to recommend you to a qualified general contractor for the demo and plumbing renovation.
We often design cabinetry for other rooms which include: Entertainment Centers, Bookcases, Closets, Wet Bars, Laundry rooms, Mudrooms, Butler’s Pantry, Home Office and any area of a home or office that needs cabinetry storage.
