KITCHEN DESIGN PROCESS
Serving Clients Throughout the Cleveland Area
We invite you to visit our showroom to view our selections, learn about our company, and answer any questions you may have. The first showroom visit is designed to get to know you and get a feel for what you are looking to accomplish with your kitchen project. We take a very personalized approach with our clients and want you to be informed and comfortable during the entire process by making everything as transparent and relaxed as possible.
BUDGETARY ESTIMATE FOR CABINETS + COUNTERTOPS
The goal of our budgetary estimate isto provide you with a rough budget for your project, prior to proceeding with an on-site field measurement and design consultation. We encourage you to bring in pictures, space measurements, and even a completed design if you have already had this completed. With this information, we will provide you with a budgetary estimate based on your current layout. These measurements do not have to be perfect, but the more information we have the more accurate our budgetary estimate will be. This is typically done during your initial showroom visit if we have enough information and the time allows for it.
KITCHEN DESIGN FIELD MEASUREMENT
If our preliminary estimate fits your budget and you are comfortable with moving forward with us, we will collect a $500 deposit that is required to secure your field measurement appointment with one of our professional designers. This deposit is non-refundable but is 100% credited towards your cabinet purchase.
IN HOME FIELD MEASUREMENT + DESIGN CONSULTATION
You will meet with your kitchen designer at your home where they will take full measurements of your space to ensure all layouts and options will work as designed. Our designer will get to know you, your family, and have an in-depth conversation to determine how we can provide the best kitchen based on your personal wants, needs, lifestyle, budget, etc.
DESIGN SNEAK PEEK
We will send you a few sneak peek pictures of your kitchen design options for review before you come in for your showroom presentation. This will allow you some time to see the options and think about what you want and possible revisions you would like to see during your presentation.
After we get some feedback on our sneak peek designs, you will set a time to meet with your kitchen designer at our showroom for a follow up design presentation. We will present different options in detail and walk you through every aspect of your kitchen design. This meeting is a collaborative design meeting where we can do additional revisions and see different options and ideas on the spot within your designated appointment time.
DESIGN REVISIONS + FINAL PLANS
After your showroom presentation, there may be some final items that you need to think about or that would like to revise. You get one round of final revisions to go through the last details with our designer. This can be done through email or an additional showroom visit, whichever works best for you. If you are not quite sold on the design and layout at this point and would like to continue to see options and revisions, a good faith cabinet deposit of 25% of your estimated cabinet cost is required to proceed. This revision and any additional revision at this point will incur a $150 revision fee. This allows our designers to properly allocate their time to customers that are ready to move forward with their project.
FINAL COSTS + ORDERING + RELEASE OF DESIGN PLAN
Once your kitchen design has been finalized, we will provide a full quote of what your cabinet, installation, and countertop costs will be. Once you place a deposit on your cabinet order, we will release all plans to you and your contractors. Deposit amounts are based on project type. You will be made aware of your payment terms during the design process.
