The Installation

Your dream space begins to become reality as construction gets underway! We offer project management for clients who are not working directly with their contractor. For an extra fee, your designer will check in at the job site throughout this phase to ensure your contractors and subcontractors (plumbers, tile contractors, etc.) are installing your product correctly based on what you specified during our consultation process. Just prior to this phase, you should:

  • Create a makeshift kitchen in a different room or of your house that includes a microwave, toaster oven, toaster, & and refrigerator
  • Plan simple meals or enjoy a lot of TV dinners
  • Use Have plenty of paper plates & disposable utensils ready to use

*Plan for the remodel to take longer than expected. For example, if given an estimated completion time of 2 months, plan on 3 or possibly 4 months. Contractor availability and product supply often lie outside the control of your designers.

Your Dream Design is Complete!

Woot! Now your dream space is a reality you can experience and enjoy! We want your space to be exactly as you envisioned it.

That’s why we give you a finished job pamphlet which includes:

  • All of your Product Warranties
  • Cleaning Guidelines
  • How-to Manuals for your New Appliances
  • Design Plans & Products Selections

*Please don’t hesitate to call us with any questions. Our relationship doesn’t end when your dream design is completed. We are here for you even after the project is finished.
