Making the decision to remodel is a big one, and is typically spurred by one of three things: the space is outdated, it doesn’t function well, or it’s simply falling apart. Here are 3 things to consider when deciding who to work with on a kitchen remodel.
- A design/build firm is there for you from start to finish. Remodeling a kitchen is something like building a car- there are thousands of parts that must be assembled properly in order to have a working vehicle. Unlike a car, however, your kitchen is not sitting on a lot waiting for you to take it on a test drive! The design and selection decisions are incredibly numerous, and using the same firm from day one through completion insures that you have a cohesive, well planned and attractive kitchen that works for you at the end of the process.
- The design/build process saves you money and time in the long run. Sure, you could just go to a cabinet showroom and maybe save a little up front, but have they been to your home and spent time with you and your family? Have they discussed your specific needs? Are they fully aware of your appliance, tile, and countertop selections? Your project developer at a design/build firm takes all the pieces of the puzzle into account to ensure that your new kitchen functions well and also gives you the look you want. They work hard to make sure that you get the items that are most important to you while still sticking to your budget.
- Your design/build firm is a TEAM. Every person there is dedicated to one thing: making the client happy by delivering a beautifully finished project on time and on budget. Designers, project developers, craftsmen, and project managers are all involved in your remodel from day one, so when it’s time to build, there are no questions or surprises. This allows for the very smoothest project possible and an end result that not only delivers a great return on your investment, but also makes you happy every time you walk into the space!
