Kitchen Remodel Tips

Who should you seek a satisfying kitchen remodel through, a Kitchen Designer or a Kitchen Contractor?

What are the ingredients of a satisfying kitchen remodel?

What is the difference between a kitchen designer and a kitchen contractor anyway?

kitchens and baths
At Signature Kitchens, Additions & Baths we would like to share with you our ingredients, our process, of design, product selection, construction and budgeting. All together leading to your satisfaction with our collaborative creation of your new kitchen!

Before we address the first question let's get the second question answered. This question comes up from customers everywhere we work. In Montgomery County MD from Olney to Bethesda, and Potomac, In Washington DC, from Chevy Chase, to Adams Morgan on to Capitol Hill and in Virginia from Mclean to Falls Church. Everyone wants to know who they ought to start the conversation with the Kitchen Designer or the Kitchen Contractor? We have a unique answer. From a kitchen designers view point a kitchen is more art than science.

It is about the "WHY"! We need to know you, what are your tastes, your likes & dislikes. We love to see customer arriving at 850C Gude Dr in Rockville MD with pictures and tabbed magazines! We'll ask how you function. Do you both cook? Do your kids cook? Do you have pets who think they can help you cook? Do you entertain? Do you want to be with your guests while you cook? Are you right or left handed? What is your height? Do you or any family members have a physical challenge? Additionally, we need to know your house, its current amenities so they can be complimented and built upon instead of diminished or offended. That coupled with product knowledge, current trends, your environmental interests and your budget are the designers' ingredients for a satisfying kitchen remodel. Seems pretty comprehensive! Is it enough!

From a kitchens contractors' point of view a satisfying kitchen remodel is more science than art, maybe a better word, would be engineering or experience, than art. It' all about the "HOW"! A satisfying remodel must then revolve around quality trim carpentry, cabinet fit and function, room structure, especially if it is being enlarged. For example are TGI, vs. LVL structural members the right product to give you the span you have requested between loads. How is the kitchen remodel impacted by MEP. Mechanical. Ductwork is often a challenging obstacle and you better be on the right side of replacement air when it becomes a topic. Electrical from panel box to under the cabinet lighting. Plumbing from venting an island to the code requirements for supply lines in outside walls. How about the dimensional impact of tile, back splash, drywall, pipes, wires, and on and on. Important? You bet is.

I would like to make an appointment to discuss kitchen tips.

- Sam & Donna M. Testimonial

"To the entire crew at Signature Kitchens, Additions and Baths - We are so Happy with our Home Addition. The kitchen design and our new kitchen cabinetry have simply been transformative.' Each and every one of you has been a real joy to work with throughout the entire process and the workmanship and professionalism is outstanding. It's nice to know there are still companies like yours in business who put the customer and quality first."

Do you need both? At Signature Kitchens, Additions & Baths we certainly believe you need both skill sets, ideally in the same company. As kitchen designers we are members of NKBA and SEN. As licensed contractors in MD, DC and in VA, we are members of NARI and NAHB. Our goal is your satisfaction, and not oddly your houses satisfaction.
