Frequently Asked Questions

How much will my kitchen cost?

It can really vary. The age and shape of your house, the size of your kitchen, the amount of work required and the quality and scope of the materials and details chosen are just a few of the variables. According to Remodeling Magazine —national averages for a complete kitchen with mid-range selections run from $21,246 for a minor remodel to $56,611 for a major remodel, and the average for what is called an upscale kitchen is $110,964. Check it out — 2008-09 Cost vs Value . Your mileage may vary. We still can do quality kitchens starting under $10,000 for a moderate size room that does not require much construction.


How can I establish a budget that works for me?

In our industry, a lot of companies will ask you for your budget. It seems difficult to establish a budget when you don’t know what it means for your kitchen. The national or regional averages, like those above, are not much help except as a point of reference. You will have your own preferences and your home is not the same as everyone else’s, so your design and construction issues will be unique.


We take a little different approach. We believe the budget should evolve. After meeting in your home and discussing some ideas, we will put together both a preliminary design and pricing to help establish a starting point. We usually price several selections from one or more cabinet lines and a range of countertop possibilities along with allowances for all of the remaining selections you will need to make. It will be much easier to make selections of cabinets, countertops, etc. when you can see how much they cost and how they affect the overall project cost. Modification of the design and the scope of work can also have an impact on the budget. Now that you can see what things cost it will be easier to establish your budget and decide what you want to include in your new kitchen.


How long will it take to have my new kitchen installed?

Replacing cabinets can take as little as 2 to 3 days, more for a larger kitchen or an intricate design. If the counters can be ordered ahead the kitchen could possibly be completed in the same time. If counters have to be measured after the cabinets are installed—it can take an additional 2 to 3 weeks to fabricate and install the countertops. Additional time is required for any needed plumbing, electric or construction work, flooring, backsplash work and painting and decorating. For a kitchen project that includes construction, electric, lighting, etc. it is not unusual for it to take 4 to 6 weeks from start to the installation of the tops with additional time for finish work like backsplash, flooring and painting.


Will we be without a sink for weeks?

Maybe, if there is substantial construction involved. Our goal is to have the countertops measured as soon as possible in the process. Other work can proceed after the tops are measured while we are “on-the-clock” for the countertop installation. We can put in a temporary sink after the countertop measure to help you get by while waiting for your countertops.


Do you help with product selections, pros and cons of materials, etc?

Of course. We usually price several levels of cabinet and counter selections so you can get a feel for the cost versus the quality and style that you have to choose from. Typically, we will try to suggest products that are consistent with the quality of the cabinets and counters that you choose. We will try to make sure many possibilities are considered.


How do you compare to other kitchen outlets?

We are factory authorized dealers for several cabinet lines and countertop manufacturers. Our cabinet lines range from good quality production cabinets through medium to high end custom lines. This purchasing power gives us quite a range of products to accommodate various tastes and also a wide range of prices, medium to high end. Because we purchase directly from the factories, we are competitive with any retailer, distributor or outlet, including home centers and builder distributors. In fact, our low overhead usually allows us to price a little under most other cabinet sellers.

Our unique advantage

· Professional, creative kitchen design

· Detailed product knowledge

· Extensive specialized kitchen installation experience and knowledge

· Good purchasing power

· Relatively low overhead

· Full service – from ideas, design, product selection, complete installation / construction

Add our penchant for listening to a customer and considering a project successful only if the customer considers it successful and we think you will agree that there is not a better value in kitchen remodeling.


What if we only need cabinets and counter tops because we already have a contractor?

We are glad to work with you. We are a great choice because of our design and construction experience. We will design and specify exactly like we would if we were installing. This means that your plans will be complete, detailed and ordered with all of the material needed to complete your unique design and features. We are glad to stop by any time during the installation for clarification, questions or advice. We work well with most contractors, they know that we know what we are talking about. Most contractors are all too familiar with kitchens from other sources that come with poor planning and documentation, without enough moldings, with parts missing or other various problems, delaying the completion.
