Custom kitchen design process

Here is how our kitchen design process works:

Set an appointment to come to the studio at 5910-127 Duraleigh Rd. Raleigh, NC 27612 by calling 919-772-3335 or 919-571-1803 or simply by filling out the Contact Us form.

At your appointment, we will review big picture goals, budgets, and preferences, and let you make some selections of products at the showroom that you are interested in using.

By the end of that appointment you will know an approximate budget, some general idea of what materials you want to use, and general timeline of how long we think the design process will take. The next step is for you to decide if you want us to help you with the design portion of your project. If so, we sign a design agreement and schedule a time to visit your home and take measurements to start your kitchen design.

At the measurement meeting, we will also take pictures of your existing kitchen and investigate any other items that we need to consider during the design phase. Then, we create your new kitchen, and set up times to review and revise your plan, as needed.

Once we get your approval on the plans and the materials selected, we can either sign a construction contract and schedule our team to get started on your project, or you can give the plans to your contractor to install your new kitchen. We can work with you and your contractor, if desired.

Let's Talk.
