Kitchens By Design, Inc.

How We Process

The Design/Build Process

Getting Started: The Design/Build Process

Whether you call or email us, your first decision should be to have Kitchens by Design visit your home and inspect the space that is to be renovated. At your home, we will interview you to find out what your goals and desires are and to measure all spaces associated with your project. Your presentation generally takes place within one week to 10 days of our initial home visit. Conceptual floor plans and an itemized proposal are presented to you at our showroom. The written proposal is yours to take home. Conceptual floor plans remain the property of Kitchens by Design until you decide to move ahead and sign a contract or retain our company to further develop your project.

Getting Started: New Construction

If you are building a new home, make an appointment with us to come into the showroom with your plans and talk about your project. Our design expertise and outstanding craftsmanship extends to any or all rooms in your home, including libraries, home theaters, bathrooms and master suites. 

The Retainer:

After your presentation, the decision to move forward is yours. If you wish to further develop your project plans then you may retain us for 5% of the estimated project costs. We will finalize all floor plans, detail precise elevations, provide electrical plans and cabinet listings, and present you with a complete and comprehensive renovation budget. All this is now yours to keep. Should you decide to sign a contract with us, the cost of the retainer is credited towards your contract.

The Contract:

Contracts are usually signed after the floor plans have been finalized and the cabinetry has been chosen. Many projects require a continuation of the design process and finalizing architectural details associated with the renovation of your home. These decisions are carefully mapped out and placed on time lines so that they can be addressed in a reasonable fashion. At this time, a deposit is due to order your cabinets. You can be assured that Kitchens by Design will be with you every step of the way from concept to installation and renovation.
