What’s the difference between our designer kitchens and one straight off the rack at your local big box home supply? Everything.
It could be the theater where you…
…create culinary works of art.
More likely it will be a place to celebrate with friends & family, a perfect spot for after school snacks and homework, or
simply a place that beckons you to linger over a second cup of coffee on your morning off.
Whatever it is, having a kitchen that works the way you want it to work makes all the difference in the world.
Most often, the choice of kitchen cabinets sets the course for the visual and functional design. Whether it’s going to be in line with today’s modern kitchens or traditional, we need to know precisely what the space will allow.
That’s why our interior designers begin by taking a careful inventory of the space. How much area is there to work with, where are the windows and doors located, what’s the balance of work space to storage space?
We assess the condition of existing walls, sub floor, plumbing and electric. We tell you if they need to be upgraded. So your investment is built on a sound foundation. If your kitchen is more than 15 years old, you will want to clear everything out and modernize. An up to date kitchen is going to call for upgraded plumbing and wiring to account for modern lighting and appliances (sound system?) that you will surely want to have in the new space.
The kitchen designers make multiple small adjustments that, taken together, maximize functionality and flow. So, you get a high performing kitchen without going to the increased expense of an addition.
When the existing space is too small to allow the function we are looking for, we design a kitchen addition. This involves gutting and re-shaping the old kitchen area, then seamlessly working the old and new spaces together.
The best kitchen design is the one that fulfills the client’s vision. It is the one that suits the way you want to live in your house.
There are a lot of ways to approach kitchen remodeling and additions as you will see in the selection of project photos in our kitchen design portfolio. Take a look. It’s a good way to gather great kitchen design ideas.
