Step One: Professional Design Services - Conceptual Phase - We begin with an in depth consultation on appliance choices,
plumbing fixtures, material options, lifestyle needs and aesthetic preferences. Then we use this information as we explore alternative layouts, often arriving at 4 or 5 floor plan options.
Step Two: Professional Design Services - Budget Revisited - Once a well conceived floor plan concept is selected, we re-price your project, making revisions to both budget and design concept, keeping the kitchen that you love from costing more than you can live with.
Step Three: Professional Design Services - Detailed Cabinetry Plans - During this phase of design, Michael and Carla consult together, making sure the woodworking details of your project blend seamlessly with the architectural details of your entire home. Carla personally prepares all the design plans in 1/2" scale (or larger if necessary) that bring your project to life. These include floor plans, elevations, moulding details and mechanical locations for appliance and undercabinet lighting requirements.
Step Four: Samples Prepared - Michael prepares wood, door and
molding samples for your approval.
Step Five: Fabrication - A strict construction schedule is
set before Michael sets off to hand select your materials. You're welcome to visit the shop while your project is being constructed.
Step Six: Project Management - In
order to make sure installation proceeds smoothly, Carla coordinates
with your contractor and/or design team. We make sure all the mechanical requirements for appliances and
under-cabinet lighting are in the proper place, as well as coordinating our schedule with your contractor.
Step Seven - Installation - Because our cabinetry is custom,
fitted cabinetry, we install our product unfinished. This also allows for
tighter joints on all the moldings, a seamless appearance on painted wood
frames and a true furniture quality appearance.
Step Eight - Finishing -Jody Toole Professional Finishes provides all of our
cabinet finishing. In addition to his furniture finishes, whether for old-world
furniture or the latest kitchen cabinet color trends, he is always up-to-date
on eco-friendly products and application methods, addressing all our concerns
for green design in furniture, environmental issues, allergens and long-term
maintenance of the finishes.
