The Kitchen Specialist Difference

Our Pricing Methodology

You have made the difficult decision to  remodel/re-design your kitchen, you are finally ready to work with a partner to create that dream space.  So will you choose a designer or a contractor based on an arbitrary pricing that sounds enticing or will you form a relationship with a designer who will take the time to know you, understand your goals and will work to create a custom solution that fits you.

A designer or a contractor can provide you any uninformed number and attempt to make it work. But think how can they estimate accurately when they don’t know what appliances, finishes, details, hardware, lighting and updates you’ll choose?

That’s why, at The Kitchen Specialist, we don’t guess. Our Pricing methodology is based on forming a partnership with you, where we work with you to achieve your design goals while making the most of your budget. As we progress through our design process, if we need to re-calibrate to your budget, we’ll do that together as a team, rather than cut corners to meet a number we threw out just to win your business.

The truth is, at The Kitchen Specialist, we can work with a wide range of budgets depending on what you are looking for.

Good things take time

Remodeling your home is a big decision, and you deserve the time and attention required to make sure it’s done right. That’s why our design process starts by reviewing your ideas and goals, then we explore designs, material options, and budget ranges together. We don’t stop until you are sure we have reached the perfect solution. Our design process allows you to make informed decisions and ensures that the prices you get from us reflect the actual cost of your renovation.

Increased accuracy and greater satisfaction

We avoid expensive surprises by ensuring a collaborative and transparent design process. In addition to being more collaborative and transparent, our Design process and Pricing methodology leads to stronger relationships and better experiences.
