Our Design Process

Our estimate and design process starts with your Good Better Best Budget. After you have approved your initial budget we will schedule a series of design meetings so we can begin to fine tune all the details of your project.

Design costs are included in all remodeling projects. If you are looking for design only services you can find our design only services pricing here. 

We'll Plan Everything Down to the Last Light Switch

No cookie cutter designs here. Our design team and showroom are at your disposal and we’ll work together to create a truly custom space you’ll love.

Pre-Construction Meetings

We get the project team involved early in the process to make sure our designs are practical as well as beautiful.

Our 3 Step Design Process

There are a lot of decisions to make for a kitchen or bath remodel. We break everything down step by step to make it easy for you.

Step 1: Schedule Your Design Meetings

Each design meeting lasts about 90 minutes and has a specific goal and outcome. We’ll update the pricing for your project at the end of each meeting and send you updated plans and 3D drawings as well.

Meeting 1: Floorplan and storage

At your first design meeting we’ll have your initial floor plan ready to review

Meeting 2: Choose your materials and fixtures

We carry a several lines of cabinetry, tile and fixtures in the showroom. We also work with online vendors and local partners when needed. 

Meeting 3: Add Color and Style

Finally we layer in the small details like plug locations, cabinet pulls and paint color

Step 2: The Project Team Gets Involved

At your second design meeting you’ll get a chance to meet with your project manager. He will schedule a time to visit your home to verify measurements and start reviewing the project with our trade partners.

Verify Measurements

We’ll schedule a second home visit to confirm measurements and make sure there aren’t any ‘red flags’ with the scope of work. 

Review Trade Agreements

We create a detailed bid package for each trade partner involved in your project to help set expectations and get accurate pricing for your fixed price proposal. 

Step 3: Review Your Fixed Price Proposal

Once all the design and selection work is complete we will create your fixed price proposal and schedule and firm start date for your project.

Review Final Proposal

We review the details of the project one last time at our final design meeting then present you with your fixed price proposal.

Sign Permit Documents

We’ll also review and notarize the appropriate permit paperwork. 

Set Start Date

Finally we’ll set a firm start date for your project and review our pre-construction process with you.
