Step 1-Design your kitchen

You should develop your project dreams/desires and come to an agreement within your family of generally what the “Big Picture” will look like when the project is completed-  We can provide typical ideas with photos and advice if you prefer.

Step 2-Research fixtures and appliances

You should research plumbing and lighting fixtures and appliances (sinks, faucets, disposals, dishwasher, range, hood, refrigerators, compactors, warming trays. ice makers, ceiling lighting, wall lighting, over cabinet and under counter lighting, etc.) and make selections on brand, style, color, and provide a model number and retail cost, if possible, so we can compare wholesale pricing-  Often on line shopping can give you some great ideas and pricing; but there may be shipping costs and delays that a local provider may alleviate.  We can provide suggested sources for all these items if you prefer.

Step 3-Research flooring, countertops, and backsplash materials

You should research hardwoods, laminate or vinyl floor options, tile and grout choices  (floor, wall, backsplash, deco borders, accent tiles, etc.), and countertop materials and make selections on brand, style, color, and retail cost-  We can provide suggested sources for all these items if you prefer.

Step 4-Research paint

You should research paint colors and select, wall, trim, and ceiling colors and textures-   We can provide suggested sources for these items if you prefer.

Step 5-Select your cabinetry

We’ll arrange for the cabinetmaker to meet with you and discuss cabinetry design, door style, glides, pulls, knobs, hardware, and develop a 3D computerized drawing of the finished room and products for your review.  There may be a design fee for this service.

Step 6- Project Pricing/Work Order Creation

Once all the project decisions have been made, we’ll price the job and prepare a detailed Work Order listing the work to be performed, by trade, for your review with pricing by function, bearing in mind your stated budget price range.  Here is where you prioritize your strongest wishes to ensure that they are included in the project.

If needed, we’ll edit this document with you as many times as you request until we come to a Work Order listing that specifies exactly what you request, and exactly what our charges will be.  We don’t like surprises; and neither should you when it comes to having a complete and clear understanding of what is to be provided and what the costs will be for the project.

Step 7-Contract Acceptance/Payment Schedule Development-

At this point, we’ll agree on a payment schedule.  We usually don’t ask for any payment in advance unless you request a special order item that cannot be returned.   We will ask for you to pay for an initial deposit (draw) with the signed Work Order and from then on will request payment for “work in place” after it is completed to your satisfaction.

We are quite flexible on payments; but they are important to keep the project moving and on schedule.

Examples of a typical project payment schedule include:

  • “Initial Draw”  -  a deposit with the signed Work Order and for special order items if applicable (custome cabinetry or non-stock fixtures)
  • “Rough-In Draw”  - after the behind the wall/floor work has been completed and inspections passed
  • “Surface Completion Draw”  - after floor tile and painting is completed
  • “Fixture & Trades Trim Draw”  -  after the cabinetry, fixtures, and lighting is installed and functioning
  • “Final Draw”  - after the Final Inspection has been performed, a Certificate of Occupancy has been granted, we “Walk the Job” with you and ensure your satisfaction with every aspect of our work on the project
