Did you know that 85% of homeowners in Colorado rely on professional kitchen designers when they want to create a dream kitchen? There are many good reasons why that percentage is so high. Building a dream kitchen involves numerous processes and details. The principal roles that designers play are that of guide and curator.
Homeowners the Denver Metro area spend hours, days, weeks, and even months researching options before making an appointment with a designer. We know that the Internet is both our friend and foe. While the Internet provides access to every product and service that you could ever need for a renovation project, the amount of information available online can be overwhelming, is often incorrect, is likely to cause analysis paralysis, contributes to unrealistic expectations and elevates stress levels. That’s where a professional designer and showroom can be your greatest asset. Showroom professionals specialize in making order out of chaos.
Professional Kitchen Designers
Because kitchen designers specialize in kitchens primarily, they not only bring a specific expertise not available from other sources, they also provide homeowners (in name of service territory) fresh perspectives, often providing new layouts, configurations, and floor plans that homeowners along the Front Range of Colorado had not previously considered. These new perspectives often result in a more functional, beautiful and enjoyable kitchen. Providing a new and enlightened perspective is especially important to homeowners (in name of service territory) because of the multiple roles that kitchens now serve.
Homeowners in Denver should expect their showroom professionals to narrow product choices based on needs, preferences and budgets. That’s why you should expect to answer a lot of questions during initial interviews and meetings ranging from what you like about your existing kitchen and what areas would you like to improve, what style do you prefer, how often do you cook in your kitchen, how often do you entertain, other than meal preparation what other functionality would you like your kitchen to provide, how do you want your dream kitchen to feel like every time your cross the threshold and on and on.
Research the Showroom
When you research a potential showroom, look on their website for completed projects that reflect your style, but also look at the different styles that are featured. A range of project types and styles that include traditional, transitional, modern, farmhouse and contemporary reflects that the showroom has not only the skill set to meet different tastes and preferences, but also the flexibility to do so.
When you interview a potential designer, ask how they plan to manage the project, the scope of services that they will provide and how they troubleshoot problems. Given today’s supply chain challenges, you should expect your showroom designer to provide a realistic timeline and suggest alternative options in the event that products that are first choices are not available in the timeline needed.
Explore the Kitchen Designers Photos of Past Work
Always ask to see photos of similar projects that the showroom has designed and don’t be shy about asking for references. Additionally, have realistic expectations. There are unforeseen events that happen on almost every project, especially when renovating existing spaces. That’s why we encourage homeowners in Colorado to ask during the interview process how a designer troubleshoots problems and responds to unforeseen occurrences.
A professional showroom and designer’s primary responsibilities are to make things work and positively change clients’ lives and living spaces. If you would like to ease the stress of the renovation process and increase the happiness of your home and family, please contact a designer at any of our locations.
