Setting up a Free In Home Consultation for Kitchen Cabinets in Phoenix, AZ

A Free In Home Consultation has more than one benefit

There are many reasons to set up an in home consultation and some are more obvious than others. Measuring a room for a different custom cabinet layout can be a challenge for some homeowners. The advantage of having someone come in to do the exact measurements is that they know their product and can often suggest cabinet sizes that you may have not considered when they know what kind of space they are dealing with.

The next advantage is that the designers carry samples of doors, trim and stain samples. This gives a homeowner the chance to view their choices under the lighting available in their home. We have all bought something that we were sure was one color in the store only to find that the color changed when viewed in a different light.

Meeting in your home gives the designer a chance to view the area as a whole and how you currently make use of the area as well as what you want from the final remodel. A kitchen can have multiple different functions and designs. The homeowner who wants their kitchen to be a family gathering place has different requirements from the homeowner that views their kitchen as a place to cook in peace.

Kitchen AZ Cabinets' latest In Home Consultation visit in Phoenix, AZ

We recently had the opportunity to visit a home in Phoenix, AZ. The kitchen we came to look at featured two tone painted cabinets. The frames of the cabinets have been painted a light tan color while the doors a creamy white. The countertops are a pink laminate color. It was very obvious that the kitchen was used and taken care of well. After spending time taking measurements of the kitchen our designers sat down with the homeowners to learn more about them and what they want out of their newly remodeled kitchen. Trim options, door styles and paint and stain colors were examined and ideas started to take shape. After our consultation was complete the designer headed home to put finishing touches on the design that will be presented to the customer.

This is what the designers saw when arriving for the free in home consultation.

Be sure to visit again for an update on this remodel design. Our next blog will examine the design plans and how to read a design.

By painting the walls a Buttered Sweet Corn they created a room with a warm sunny feel that highlights the white cabinets that were finished with a vintage charcoal glaze to accent the moulding on the cabinets. The choice of stainless steel and black appliances only further accent the cabinet color choice. The charcoal in the quartz countertops helps the entire room blend into one seamless unit.

Goodyear Kitchen/Bar Remodel in Progress

While this remodeling project in Goodyear, AZ is not complete yet we are too excited to wait. It is too often easy to get caught up in the end results and the excitement of designing a remodeling project. Whether it is a kitchen, bathroom or any room or space in your home for that matter it is important to remember the construction time. The scope of your remodeling project will determine the amount of time you spend in the construction phase. Construction can be done in a matter of hours or can last several weeks. The average remodeling project lasts about a week. When planning a remodel it is important to consider how the construction will affect your daily life. Will you have access to running water or even a bathroom? How long will the kitchen take to be completed from start to finish? It is recommended that you work with your general contractor so that you understand just what is happening and when it will happen.

Common questions to ask a General Contractor before they begin
  • Will the water need to be shut off?
    • If the answer is yes find out how long it will need to be off and when it will be shut off.
  • Will you be working on multiple rooms at the same time?
    • People often do both bathrooms and the kitchen at the same time. Depending on your contractor and the time frame estimate they may want or need to work on all three rooms at the same time. This is usually the case when a plumber, electrician or flooring installer is called.
  • How long will this project last?
  • Does someone need to be present during the remodeling?
These are just a few questions that a homeowner should know before construction on their home starts.
