    The Importance of Working with a Kitchen Designer

    As kitchen designers we are repeatedly asked, what are the benefits of working with a designer rather than a stocked box company? The most important and most clear reason, in my opinion, is customization. Renovating a kitchen is a big investment and we understand that. So, in the process, why not make your new kitchen the space of your dreams?! For this "On The Water Addition" my client had a few specific needs that had to be met in the re-design of her kitchen. 

    First was space. There needed to be plenty of seating for her family and friends to sit comfortably while she was busy cooking up a storm in her new kitchen. There also needed to be enough counter space so that the prepared food could be served from a spot in the kitchen other than her work areas. In order to accommodate that, we configured a large asymmetrical island that provided enough space for everyone to sit. Then, we designed a long, easily accessible, built-in buffet. With the windows above, it really becomes the focal point of the room.


     

    Secondly, because of that entertaining, she needed to know that the clean up process wouldn't be a slow one. To make sure that didn't happen, we incorporated an additional "clean-up station" in the island. This included an extra sink and full size dishwasher. Now the home owner can be assured she won't be wasting quality time with her guests in order to finish cleaning the kitchen.

    Third, the importance of recycling was expressed to me. She needed a place to keep her cans and bottles organized but, at the same time, out of sight. So, designed into the floor plan and disguised by the cabinetry is a base cabinet that allows the family to send cans and bottles to the basement. There the cans and bottles can be sorted into their correct bins. 

     And last but not least... coffee! My client wanted to make her morning routine of coffee making easier and less of a hassle. Her Keurig was going to be decently far from the sink areas. So rather than having to bring the Keurig to the faucet across the kitchen, we designed a faucet specifically for the Keurig itself. Now, no more spilling water on the floor!

    I guess my point is that if you're going to be investing your time, money and energy into such a large project, the choice is clear! Work with a professional and make your new kitchen a unique space built just for you!

    Budget Friendly Kitchen Renovation

    "A Look for Less"

    How many times do you go out browsing and absolutely fall in love with something you see? And then, just when you have decided you can't live without this item, you think to yourself, if it looks this good, it has to be out of my budget. In our showroom, it happens to the people who walk in here everyday. But! What you may not realize is that we, at Details, are capable of giving you the style you want with the price you need. By carrying 3 different cabinet lines, we are able to look at the options for price range, style/finish selections, and available modifications. This allows us to select the perfect company (or companies) for each individual project.

    My "Tinkham Reno" project started off with the client walking into our "Living Kitchen" display at the showroom saying, "This is it! This is my kitchen." Our "Living Kitchen" display was designed by Tena. If you haven't seen this display, you need to! (photo below) She specified beautiful Buttercream painted StarMark Cabinetry for the surround cabinets and classic cherry stained cabinetry from Plain & Fancy for the island. So, now that the overall look was nailed down in about 5 minutes, it was time apply it to my client's space and expectations.

    After understanding all the the client's wants and needs, we realized that we would be over on the budget. One cause for this was the island by our fully custom line, Plain & Fancy. My thought was to switch the island from Plain & Fancy to StarMark, which was the semi-custom cabinet line we were already using for the surround cabinetry. So, with a pricing goal in mind, I replicated the custom island from the showroom. The stain/glaze finish, as well as the construction and modification options, were all slightly different. The doors styles, although similar, did change a bit, too. But, with compromise from my client and some design tweaking on my part, the outcome was fantastic!

     

    So, the next time you're in our showroom, don't think for a minute that anything is out of reach because of budget restraints. With a little bit of give and take, you can have the space of your dreams!
