The designer will want information from you, but you should seek information from the designer, too, including actual photos of his or her work — not brochures from manufacturers. ”If the designer can’t produce examples of his or her own work, leave,” White says.
No matter what services your designer provides, the NKBA recommends setting up a clearly defined cost schedule by which you pay in installments — and never in full until the work is done.
For complicated jobs such as kitchen renovations, many designers seek special training and professional credentials. A major source of certification is the trade-based National Kitchen and Bath Association. An NKBA-certified designer has studied construction, mechanical, electrical and plumbing technologies and safety and professional conduct standards. Another avenue of certification is the National Council for Interior Design Qualification, which tests for competency in building systems, building codes, construction standards, contract administration, design application, professional practices and project coordination. NCIDQ states that its testing is based strictly on public health, safety and welfare. Certification indicates a broad knowledge base that ranges from knowing where to put plumbing pipes to choosing the right size stove for your space. Checking a designer’s professional credentials is one way to further your choice of someone to oversee your renovation.
On the dusty, messy journey called kitchen remodeling, there are advantages to having a professional designer as a guide. The pros can help you budget wisely, avoid mistakes, make the space beautiful and functional, and open doors to new and specialized resources.
For instance, if your goal is to create a chef’s paradise, you may sacrifice seating space to make room for large and luxe range appliances.
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.
