1. Showroom Consultation
An initial complimentary consultation in our showroom provides us with a preliminary understanding of your interests and preferences, while allowing you the opportunity to become familiar with our capabilities. During our first meeting, vital information will be gathered from you regarding style preferences, functional requirements and budget. You are welcome to bring measurements and photos of your space.
2. Preliminary Conceptual Room Design
We will visit your home to take measurements and evaluate your space and then use the information we have gathered to present you with a preliminary floor plan and proposal. A minimal fee is required; the design fee will be applied toward the purchase of the cabinetry project and is non-refundable. All of the plans will remain the property of Kitchens by Eileen.
3. Fine Tuning the Room Design
At this time we will assist you in the selection of appropriate cabinetry, lighting, flooring, finishes and materials. A design agreement fee will be applied toward the purchase of the materials and is non-refundable. All of the plans will remain the property of Kitchens by Eileen
The next step in the design process is the presentation of detailed plans, elevations, and exact pricing for your project. At this time, a design retainer fee of 15% of the cost of the cabinetry or project is due. Upon receipt of the retainer, plans and elevations are released to you for your use.
If you intend to use KBE to install your design, we will sign a contract requiring a down payment for ordering materials for the total project.
Before construction begins, we will provide you with a helpful “Information Binder” containing all the information you will need about your new design project as we work in your home. KBE will remain in close contact with you throughout the entire installation process. We pride ourselves in our clean up policy – we use partitions to keep our client’s homes tidy, and we never leave a day’s mess behind.
We are confident that you will love our team’s superior craftsmanship as they install your beautiful new design.
