My kitchen and bath need an update, but I have no idea where to begin. How do you help me?
We begin by identifying what speaks to both the style and function of the space you wish to makeover. We narrow down what inspires and excites you. In addition to books and magazines, there are many online resources that provide endless possibilities of style and color combinations. Houzz and Pinterest are two favorites and a great place to start. For many, the actual touch and feel of a cabinet or countertop is important. Visiting showrooms to get that experience is the next step, and ours is the largest kitchen and bathroom design showroom in the Katy area, with a vast array of options to see and touch and imagine in your own home.
What brands and quality control do you use?
We use materials of the highest quality available to suit every budget, from top brand names to lesser known brands. Every customer has an array of options to choose from. Most of our products come with a manufacturer’s warranty, on top of our own five-year labor warranty.
What are the steps to designing my kitchen or bath remodel, and how long should I expect the remodel to take?
There are plenty of projects that are perfect for the DIY crowd, however, when it comes to critical spaces such as a kitchen or bathroom, it is best to seek a trusted professional. Select a company that has a minimum of ten years of experience, who can provide design ideas and put them in a visual format. It is best to visit a showroom and make an appointment to have an in-home or virtual consultation. Once you select a company, an average-sized kitchen or bathroom remodel takes about five to seven weeks, assuming there are no delays with materials or any unforeseen situations.
What technologies and processes do you use to envision my new space?
We utilize software that visually renders your new space. It is a critical tool in helping you see the end-result of your selections. Visiting showrooms that have kiosk setups of spaces that you can see, touch, and feel provide a true sense of what your end result will look like.
Are there package options to help me stay within my budget?
Yes, we have budget-minded, turn-key ABC packages to choose from, with a large selection of competitively priced products and services.
With the freeze that occurred in February, what advice would you give to victims of this disaster?
Texans have seen and experienced many Hurricane disasters. We are resilient. However, with the 20 plus years we have been in business here, 2021 has been the most challenging for our clients, with COVID and compound that with the freeze. My advice is that this too shall pass. Stay strong, be patient, and pick the right contractor. There are many fly by night contractors in times after a disaster. Pick someone you trust to do the job right the first time. We do provide complimentary estimates and guidance.
