A streamlined three-phase process for Kitchen Renovations
Our Kitchen Design Process
In Chicago, the kitchen serves as a gathering place for family and friends, and the heartbeat of the home. This is why an ergonomically-designed kitchen space not only adds value to the home but to the quality of life within it. For this reason, a kitchen renovation is one of the simplest forms of enhancing all that the kitchen space has to offer within a home.
A Streamlined three-phase Process For Chicago Kitchen Renovation Projects:
Phase1: Design | Phase 2: Materials | Phase 3: Renovation & Installation
Phase 1: Design
The first step in any kitchen renovation project is the design phase, where a professional designer works with the homeowner to create a design that will achieve the goals of the homeowner with the kitchen space. In this phase, your remodeling consultant will work to:
A. Define Measurements: The design team will visit your home and record precise measurements of the current kitchen space, which will be used to develop the plans for the future space. As Chicago kitchen renovators for many years we are well aware of the small kitchen spaces many of our clients are dealing with. We take pride in our small kitchen remodel expertise and the ability to maximize every inch and make your small kitchen look and feel bigger.
B. Mockups: You will see a full mockup rendering of where we propose placing every kitchen design element, from cabinetry to appliances to lighting and beyond. Here, we’ll work with you to review what your design consultant is proposing and to make any changes you would like to see.
C. Budgeting: We will work with you to determine the kitchen remodel cost associated with the proposed mockups and will make any adjustments necessary to stay within the budget you desire. Budgeting is a more streamlined process at Klein Kitchen and Bath than it may be at other design firms. Because we are a full-service kitchen and bathroom design company, we work with one singular team for the entire project from start to finish, which means communication about and management of all costs are handled by the project manager.
D. Aesthetics: Coordinated aesthetics are integral to a kitchen remodel. View a wide range of kitchen remodel pictures to get ideas. We will work with you to match the finishes on your new cabinetry, countertops, lighting fixtures, flooring, backsplash, and other design elements.
Phase 2: Materials
We source the best materials for kitchen renovation from only the best cabinet, countertop, appliance, and fixture suppliers. Our designers will work with you to review the aesthetics you hope to achieve — whether it’s something you saw in our showroom or something you saw on television — and will help to determine the best sources for all of the materials we’ll need for the job.
A. Cabinetry: We stock cabinetry from a range of local and international cabinet makers in both modern and traditional styles. We will commission cabinet projects in any finish, style, or material.
B. Countertops: We will source any type of countertop you desire, including quartz (Caesarstone, Sile Stone, Zodiaq), Ice Stone (Recycled Glass and Concrete), natural stone, granite, wood, glass, stainless steel, concrete, and Richlite (recycled paper product).
C. Appliances: We will source any appliance from any manufacturer you desire. We will be happy to consult you on different types of appliances, appliance manufacturers, and what might fit your needs the best.
D. Fixtures: We will work with you to choose the right fixtures including kitchen sinks, faucets, knobs, hoods, backsplashes, lighting, and more.
Phase 3: Renovation & Installation
Our team of kitchen remodeling contractors and designers is unparalleled in their professionalism and craftsmanship. We will work tirelessly throughout the renovation and installation process to provide top-notch work that maintains budget, schedule, and quality. Our streamlined full-service process means working with one team — with one vision — for the entire project. You will never have to juggle contractors and lighting designers – your project manager will the entire team throughout the renovation process.
