A designer can pull all the pieces of your kitchen puzzle together. You’ll be free to dream, while the designer thinks through all the measurements, material coordination, and construction logistics.
A designer will typically:
- Create a design and draft a floor plan and elevations.
- Develop a detailed budget and schedule.
- Order products and materials.
- Coordinate work with your contractor or act as the contractor
- Provide and oversee the installation and placement of the cabinets, appliances and other design elements.
Before meeting with a designer, consider:
- What you and your family like and dislike about your current kitchen. Bring a rough floor plan of your kitchen with you.
- What general styles you like-contemporary, traditional,
- Whether you want your kitchen to reflect the architectural style of your home.
- What designs have caught your attention-bring photos or magazine tear-outs of your favorites.
- When you want your new kitchen to be ready.
- How much you want to spend.
- What questions you have about the designer’s work & about the remodeling process in general.
