Kitchen design specialists in Raleigh. Kitchens are no longer those one-purpose-simply-functional rooms tucked in the back of the house and closed off from the rest of civilization. Modern day life requires a kitchen to be high tech, open and accessible, friendly and inviting, with a functionality that transcends cooking.
So, along with the increased complexity that is needed to plan such a room, kitchens now come with kitchen specialists. For example, if you enter our well stocked and diverse show room here at the Cabinet and Closet Depot, and wander over to the kitchen section, you will meet our resident kitchen specialist, one of the best kitchen design specialists in Raleigh.
What is a kitchen specialist?
Besides the fact that they are human, and phenomenal at what they do – a kitchen specialist is expert in current remodeling building codes and at creating functional as well as beautiful kitchen designs. They are practical and creative people who know where the best spot is for your fridge, so it compliments the room, saves you in energy costs and is easy to reach.
They can design the kitchen of your dreams, complete with decor, accessories, finishing all to the latest trends. They know what is current in terms of appliances and color schemes, and what will suit your home and your personality.
What information will a kitchen specialist need?
The best place to begin with a kitchen makeover is a good plan. In order to formulate the whole room, a kitchen specialist will not only need to know your color scheme of choice, but some additional information as well.
So, before you buy your first appliance, think about your lifestyle and the needs of your family and pets. This is the information you should share with your kitchen design specialists in Raleigh:
- How large is your family?
- Should the space be multi-functional? Should the space be versatile enough to allow for office work?
- Who does the cooking, and will you need multiple work stations?
- How much do you entertain and where?
- How much space is available, and what types of specialized equipment would you need?
- Do you want a separate eating area?
- What is your budget?
- How would you describe the heart of your home?
- What color schemes and designs interest you?
Even though your kitchen specialist will most likely have more questions, these should give him / her a good idea of where to begin. Once they do a site visit and start doing measurements and actively panning the kitchen layout, they will come up with drawings and a quote for you, as well as a time estimate of the renovation.
Based on the plans and the show pieces that can be seen in the showroom, you will have a good idea of what the finished product will look like, and you can decide based on that if you are happy, or if more alterations should be made.
