1. Pick Your Designer
Probably the single most important key to the success of your project is selecting a designer you can comfortably work with. Of course design skill is the primary criteria, but you should also be looking for a great listener, a creative perfectionist and a clever problem solver.
2. Idea Storming
After the first meeting, we will give you some homework, asking you to pull together some pictures that you like from magazines and from our catalogs. We will discuss your current space…likes and dislikes… as well as the vision, aesthetic and functionality of your new space.
3. Site Measure
All of our designers are pros at measuring…or we work from your architect’s plans.
4. Design and 3-D Cad Renderings
Our designers will provide a full set of hand drawings and elevations as well as multiple 3-D computer generated renders.
5. Final Decisions on Door Style,Wood,
Finish, Appliances, etc.
This is the fun part, but you will need the guidance of a seasoned designer to help keep the project on budget.
6. Any Changes / Revisions
Flexibility is important…the final tweaks often significantly add to the “WOW!” factor.
7. Cabinet Order Placed
Fully custom lines take 8-12 weeks but semi-custom ship in much faster.
Columbia Cabinets will provide your installer with a complete set of schematics and all necessary information they will need to complete the installation. In addition, we will be available during the process to answer questions pertaining to the project.
