First Things First…Is Carole’s a Match for Your Project?
Since the early ’90s, our Carole team has specialized in crafting professional cabinetry designs for people remodeling (or building new construction) and wanting NEW cabinetry and/or countertops. We guide you through product selection and storage solutions with customized layouts and products to suit your needs. If you are, in fact, seeking professional kitchen design and you’d like new kitchen cabinets or countertops, we can help! Over the decades—and literally thousands of kitchens—we have refined a process and established a fantastic showroom…to help you reach your individual project goals. (We are sorry we cannot assist with refacing, replacing cabinet doors only or painting your existing cabinets.)
Design Phase 1: Book a complimentary design consultation in our showroom or remote by phone/video conference.
The first phase involves sharing in-depth product and design education, and referencing our many showroom displays, samples, and accessories, etc. It is helpful to gather the following for the first phase…
- Measurements (see below).
- Photos of your current space, even if it will be changing.
- Clippings or photo links for styles/designs you like.
- Appliance sizes.
We will review cabinetry options, finishes, storage, etc. and discuss your vision, time frame, and budget. After your first meeting, please allow about a week for us to work on your plans.
Please do a QUICK MEASURE. This gives your Carole designer enough basic data about your space to get started.
- Measure in INCHES each WALL (not cabinet), corner to corner.
- Note the width in INCHES of each appliance in current location.
- Note ceiling height (floor to ceiling) in INCHES.
- Measure doors and windows (outside casing to outside casing) in INCHES.
Design Phase 2: Presentation of Your Initial Design
You’ll see a preliminary 3D/computerized drawing of your new kitchen and get an estimate for cabinetry & countertop options.
We provide these first two expert consultations and initial design preview at no cost to you. Why? We want to earn your confidence—in both our design expertise and the product selections offered.
Design Phase 3: Retainer & Home Measure
Your designer will ask you to sign a retainer agreement and pay a retainer fee. (100% of this retainer is used as a deposit toward your kitchen cabinetry purchase). This allows your designer to visit your home for an on-site measure and release hard copies of your personalized design plans to you/your installer.
Design Phase 4: Design Finalization & Product Ordering
After we complete the professional in-home measure, we will finesse and complete your design, and thoroughly review every aspect of your order. You’ll sign-off on your plans , purchase products, and we will submit your order. You will receive a final copy of plans.
Design Phase 5: Delivery!
We will call you when your products arrive in our warehouse to set up a delivery date.
