The best way to begin the journey is to visit our kitchen & Bath Showroom. You will be able to see many of the products that we offer and speak with a designer. At that point, we can discuss your project, help with budgeting and possibly set an appointment to visit your home. The next step is a return visit to our design center to review plans, choose products and receive a more educated quote. You can be assured that at no time will you be pressured into a decision. We work at your pace.
Service, selection and a competency level that you will not generally find in a home center. Your kitchen and bath will undoubtedly be one of the more costly updates that you undertake in your home. But it can also be the most rewarding. We as Americans like to purchase items in commodity form. That is, to shop for like products to find the best price. This is also the approach of the home center. But, in the case of kitchens and baths, proper sizing, ordering and installation are actually more important than the product. These items require an investment in time and effort that most home centers are not able to make. We take responsibility for our client s ultimate satisfaction, at the home center; you, the customer, will shoulder the responsibility. Are you ready to pay for those errors, both in money and time?
From our first contact with you to the beginning of work, usually encompasses a three month investment of time. A great time to begin the research process is with six months of installation. We have another rule of thumb. We have found that this formula for installation time seems to serve as a good indicator of installation time: One day of time for each $1000. of contracted cost.
A. Despite today s do-it-yourself (DIY) craze, you should weigh the pros and cons of taking on any remodeling project alone. Make sure you consider the scope of work. In most cases, it costs more for a professional remodeler to come in and fix any DIY damage than it would have if the homeowner hired a professional in the beginning.

Below are a few questions you should consider before embarking on a DIY project:
  • Are you familiar with your local building codes and permit requirements?
  • Do you know the proper steps for completing the project? Did you draft a plan?
  • Is it safe for you to do this project? For example, are you familiar with the electrical wiring of the home, if that is what the project requires?
  • Have you obtained the installation instructions from the manufacturer when installing a certain product?
  • What is your remodeling skill level? Is it comparable to that needed to complete the project?
    If you answered yes to all of these questions, you may be capable of handling a DIY project alone. However, be honest with yourself when evaluating if you have the skill set and mentality to complete a DIY project
Yes, too many improvements can actually hinder the functionality of any kitchen or bath and may, in fact, actually turn the space into a complicated, non-user friendly area. The design aspect is also negatively affected. You need to determine what your purpose is for remodeling the space.
Your cleaning methods will vary depending on your wood finish. Make sure to check with the product manufacturer, dealer or installer. Most factory cabinets currently use a conversion varnish finish. In this case, occasional waxing can add water resistance and create a lasting shine. In general, preventive maintenance is vital for long-term performance and beauty of wood cabinets and floors.
Here are just five of many ways to impress your guests (and yourself) while actually adding convenience and resale value to the design of your kitchen.
  1. Place your dishwasher diagonally into a convenient corner. It looks great and saves the cost of an expensive and inconveniently accessible cabinet.
  2. Step your sink cabinet forward (at least 3 ) to add interest and reduce the amount of water that ends up on your window or window treatments.
  3. Place a 13 television into the top of a diagonal corner cabinet. It s a great place to let the whole family view without the screen being blocked, (not to mention the savings in counter space).
  4. Place your range or cook top diagonally into a convenient corner. With proper planning, it can reallocate counter space for better function and provide better space for pot and pan storage.
  5. Adequate lighting is a must, but it s rarely specified. Consider strategically placing recessed and/or under-wall cabinet lighting to accent the beauty while allowing you to actually see what you are creating!
