Best Kitchen Design Tip ... use an Independent Kitchen Designer
August 22, 2016
Your Kitchen Designer is the most important non-product choice that you have to make. Ask friends that had a new kitchen installed, or their friends. Find out which company they've used, which designer, which installer and project manager. This is not like buying a car; you are after all handing over a large chunk of money and you need to make sure you are getting the best product and service.
Kitchen furniture, worktops, appliances and accessories are all commission based sales. So, when walking into a showroom don't settle for the first designer that approaches you; the best designers will ussually have enough direct referrals to never be responsable for walk-ins.
Sometimes, the best solution is to hire and independent kitchen designer. He/she will provide you with a plan, elevations, colour visuals and in our case, Mechanical and Electrical works layout (very handy for your builder,electrician and plumber) - this is what we do at Cris Sega Designs.
This method allows you to shop around without any obligations or commitments. You can simply walk into a showroom and ask them for a price based on your design. Simple.
After the design/cost scenario has been taken care of, the next important factor is the kitchen installer. Alway insist on the best installer for your kitchen; again ask around, find out or better yet, ask your Independent Kitchen Designer - we can help with this as well.
At Cris Sega Designs, our main priority is to help you make the right design decisions to spend your budget wisely and get the best results for your project.
