There are three steps to the design process; Our Initial Meeting, a Design Presentation and the Refinement Process. The first two steps take only one to two weeks depending on the scope of the project. The Refinement Process is initiated with a signed contract and deposit and takes as long as the customer needs to get it right. This is where we refine the layout and details of the kitchen. We also finalize the wood species and finish for the cabinetry and guide you in the selection of countertop material, tile, flooring, lighting and paint colors as needed. This step typically takes an additional one to three weeks, but again it depending on the scope of the project.
