The first step is education, for both of us. Our showroom has been designed to display a wide variety of cabinet design styles, door selections, counter choices and finish options. In addition, our Cabinet Comparison Wall allows you to clearly see the differences in cabinet construction details and quality. Our showroom and design team will make you an educated consumer. Your initial visit will give you an opportunity to educate us on the details of your project. It is critical for us to understand your desires and needs for the project so we can begin to define the scope as well as the constraints.


During the site visit we will further discuss the details of the project, take measurements and complete an initial design concepts, measurements and physical and mechanical needs will be identified. If the project is for new construction the work is generally done from architectural drawings. This visit is the time that general design concepts are developed with you. The walk through and discussions can take several hours.

Once the broad concepts and constraints of the project have been identified it is time to enter into the Project Planning Agreement. The agreement requires us to provide a finished floor plan and perspectives based on your preferred layout, obtain subcontractor quotes for the required work, prepare a comprehensive project cost estimate, develop a schedule of cost options and deliver it all at a final meeting where each detail is explained and a final design is reached. When the project is designed to your satisfaction we enter into a contract for execution of the project.


We will provide a timeline of the installation and schedule meetings to keep you informed of progress and review completed work. While design changes are always expensive, they are generally less so when handled early in.

Your involvement in the “Collaborative Design Solutions” process will ensure that your new kitchen, bath, closet or entertainment area will bring you years of enjoyment.

What our clients say

I wanted to take a moment to thank you for all the work you did making my kitchen update a success. We have only had the kitchen finished for two weeks and it has already changed how I feel about preparing meals. The huge island and extra space between the counter and island has made it more family friendly space and beverage fridge in island has solved the “too small fridge” problem.- Kittery , Maine
