Free consultations are great, but having and paying for an expert will definitely have a better result.

While the expert’s doing your design, don’t hesitate to tell them what you want. Remember, this is your kitchen, and you’re the one who’ll be spending time here. Therefore, it’s important that it represents who you are and the entirety of your home.

 

  1. Should I get an estimate?

Definitely! Remember, you’re working within a budget. Therefore, it’s essential to get an estimate of the design and other elements that need to be done in your kitchen. As much as possible, always work within or even below your budget to ensure you won’t need to shed off more than what you intended for.
