Beware: If you prefer privacy when you cook, or at least a buffer zone against guests, an L-shaped kitchen may not suit those needs.
Ask to see a project similar to yours, including the plans, and find out how much it cost. You should also ask about payment schedules, contracts, timelines, and design services.
Petrie’s firm is full-service, handling projects from concept to completion. He creates the design, provides custom cabinetry, and employs carpenters and installation professionals.
”If you’re not comfortable with a designer, there’s a reason,” says John Petrie, a CMKBD and NKBA member in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania. ”You can’t sugarcoat the process. We are going to come into your home and we are going to disrupt your lifestyle for the next so many weeks. If everybody is honest and comfortable, it minimizes problems.”
If you are new in town or are among the first of your friends to tackle major home renovations, finding a designer might be a challenge. The NKBA offers a locator service that can give you a clear picture of local resources. You can also contact the American Society of Interior Designers to find area professionals. DesignBuild4UChicago also notes that an increasing number of general building contractors and home renovation companies are hiring professional kitchen designers for their staff. Design services offered by a building company might be more affordable than those of independent, private design firms.
”Clients can go to all the kitchen showrooms and all the contractors and say, ’Here’s my kitchen design. What’s my price?’” Dick says. ”Then they’re shopping price, they’re not shopping design.”
