You deserve a price
range for your cabinetry on your first visit.
A seasoned professional should be
able to give you an accurate price range for your project on your first
1. You have a set of
floor plans for your new construction project
2. You have plans for your remodeling project.
If a designer is worth his or her salt, he or she should be able to give you a fairly accurate price range based on the different offerings they have available to you.
Lastly, do not be
afraid of giving your designer your budget. A good designer can not work
with you without a budget. Once you give your designer a budget, he or
she should be able to steer you in the direction of the products and
design that will compliment your budget.
Think about it for a minute...
Would you go to an architect to have a house plan drawn up without
telling him or her a budget range for the house? Of course not. The same
is true with designing a kitchen The same kitchen can be designed in
price ranges that would amaze you. If you don't trust your designer
enough to give a budget range, one of two things is wrong. Either you
have not spent enough time with the designer for him or her to earn your
trust, or they are not trustworthy based on your evaluation. Either way,
trust is critical.
Sometimes, we have NO idea what
a budget range could be. I recall having someone over to build a custom
piece of furniture not long ago. Based on my significant knowledge of
the cabinetry industry, I had a rough idea of what the item would cost.
It was about double what I had anticipated. Why?? The work was all done
locally - not in a factory. A factory has a huge advantage of scale of
production to lower labor and material costs. If you are unsure, ask
your designer to give you rough budget ranges to think about.
Would you like the
scoop on cabinetry?
If you are looking for
the cutting edge of design, material, and products - you are in the
right place at the right time.
Thank you for visiting.
