There is a lot to consider when contemplating a kitchen remodeling project. The Cabinet Lady is here to help you as you begin the planning process. And whether you are six months or several years away from implementation, it makes good sense to begin planning for it now.

Here is how my service works. If invited, I will come to your home for a free consultation. During this time we will get acquainted and discuss your needs and wishes for the new kitchen and also discuss replacing the existing cabinets VS refreshing them. This first meeting will give you a feel for whether or not you would enjoy working with me. There is no cost to you for this initial consultation, but please be aware that if the design will be changing radically from what you have now, I may not be able to give cost estimates for new cabinets at this time. If you have your own contractor, it would be helpful for him/her to be present at our initial consultation, especially if you are considering structural changes. If you don't have your own contractor, I can, at your request, invite mine to our consultation meeting so that you can meet him and get questions answered about the actual construction process, time frame, structural questions, etc.

If after our initial consultation you feel comfortable with me, we could go in one of two directions:

New Cabinets

If you would like to enlist my services for NEW cabinets, the next step is for me to photograph and measure the existing kitchen, and begin working on a new design. To save time, I can photograph and measure immediately after our consultation, but this is where my design fee kicks in. Depending on the size of your kitchen, I charge a design fee of between $250-500 which covers the measuring and also 6-8 hours of my time in working up a new design. This fee is credited back to you if you purchase your cabinets from The Cabinet Lady within one year. While investing in great design is a smart idea, in fact 90% of my customers do indeed purchase my cabinetry because I offer such excellent quality at affordable prices, (unlike the traditional cabinet showroom). For those who opt to purchase cabinets elsewhere, the fee covers the time I've invested in the design process. If for any reason you are NOT comfortable working with me after our initial consultation or do NOT wish to take it to the next step, you are under no obligation. Just tell me afterwards that you are not ready to proceed at this time.

Refresh Existing Cabinets

After consulting with The Cabinet Lady, you may decide to refresh your EXISTING cabinets with paint and/or glaze. I may be able to give a ballpark price for this service at the time of our consultation. However, there are other factors that come into play when painting cabinets such as: selecting a new door style, replacing hinges, replacing drawer boxes and/or drawer glides, adding decorative features such as moldings, corbels or turned legs, or adding interior accessories. Because there are so many things to consider, It may require a second visit by my technicians to look more closely at the existing cabinets to determine exact pricing.
