Complimentary Initial Consultation

We believe the planning process is the foundation of any successful project. Start with KitchenVisions first.

We talk about your project and explain how we work. We discuss an initial budget, your home’s value and the remodel investment parameters, your design goals, and our design and project coordination fee. We collaborate with you to determine the scope of services required to realize your personalized project from conception to completion. We determine at this meeting whether you need an architect, interior designer, structural engineer or other building specialist.

Scope Development

We will send you a proposal which details the scope of work discussed, fee structure and general provisions for us working together. For general budgeting purposes, we send you an agreement with the estimated number of hours, based on historical data for similar projects we have completed, for:

  • Design: Measurements, schematic design work and cabinet, tile, and lighting layouts and plans

  • Selections: Shopping & presentations for selections of cabinets, countertops, tile, hardware, flooring, paint, appliances, and lighting as needed for project completion

  • Project Coordination: Completion of installation binders for use by the contractor and tradespeople

  • Client meetings

  • Job site visits to collaborate with project managers and subcontractors

Project Vision & Goals

Once the design proposal has been reviewed and accepted and a retainer has been received, we move forward with discovering your design personality.

  • Site visit made to measure the existing space

  • Complete a KitchenVisions design questionnaire and share your design inspirations and ideas (bring magazine articles and photos, Houzz Ideabook, Pinterest boards and notes)

  • Elaborate on the project parameters: scope, timing and materials

  • Create cost estimates for cabinetry, finishes and materials and confirm project budget and design goals

Imagery, Details & Selections

  • Present floor plan layout options

  • A final layout is agreed upon often combining elements from several different floor plans

  • Introduction to contractors based on their availability (and personality match)

  • Discuss various options and related costs: construction and selections schedules

  • Select cabinetry, finishes and materials – depending on your needs, we will bring materials to you for your approval or you can schedule product selection meetings where we shop together
