Kitchen Design/Build Process Sets Bergen County Company Apart

Planning a kitchen remodeling project can often be both exciting and a bit overwhelming. The fun and inspiration that comes with matching your personal style and vision with the latest kitchen trends, choosing colors that please the entire family, selecting cabinets that are both functional and beautiful, and other creative decisions, can soon be replaced by the stressful realities of having a major construction project taking over the most popular room in your home.

The Creative Design Construction & Remodeling Inc. Design / Build Process

Step One: Design

Conceptual and Budget Feasibility 

The intent of phase one is to explore design and material options enabling the Creative Design team to develop a concept and budget for the proposed project. They will interview you to assess your needs and take detailed measurements of the proposed space to be renovated They will provide one or more design options to be presented in the form of conceptual floor plans. Plans will show general changes in room design including new doors, windows, added space and changed wall configurations. Cabinets and countertops will be laid out including appliances and fixture locations. Specialty built-in items will be included on the concept plans

Step One, Phase Two: Detailed Design Development

The intent of phase two is to move the conceptual design into detailed plans and specifications from which a final agreement can be presented. Final plans will include a detailed floor plan showing all structural and non-structural changes to the proposed space. Detailed layouts for cabinets, countertops, appliances, fixtures, and specialty built-in items will be included. A mechanical plan will be provided which will include electrical and lighting design. The Creative Design staff will also present your final plans in elevations or perspectives to give you a realistic view of your newly designed space. All local building and zoning requirements will be investigated. Specifications will include details on all products selected and a written agreement clearly defining scope of work to be provided.
