As much as your design and final touches are important for the overall end result, what’s more, important is your choice of the remodeling contractor.
A right design firm is all that stands between a stunning, renewed kitchen and a complete disaster.
Do your Research
Search for famous design studios near you or others who can come to work in your area. Look further into their services and what they offer.
Check their reviews in HOUZZ, HomeStars and Google
Read reviews and testimonials from people who have hired those designers in the past and how their work turned out to be.
Look at the before and after pictures of their resulting renovations if available, and personally contact those employers to get your personalized questions answered. Let them share their experience with you, ask any questions that come into your mind and see if they felt like the service needed some improvements.
Use word of mouth
Ask around for recommendations in your circle of friends, family members, colleagues and other acquaintances. This is one of the best ways to find a qualified professional. Moreover, you have a higher chance to even get to preview their work firsthand by visiting your friends or relatives in person.
The Rule of Three
You must try to get estimate quotes from at least three design studio firms. This allows you to compare the rates, schedule and even experience. However, needless to say you must not head straight on for the firm with the lowest quote. While renovation quote higher than an expected average cost couldn’t mean in better results and, quotes too low could also mean poorer end results. Weigh in other factors before you make the final call.
Check the contract carefully
Ensure that your contractor is up-to-date with all rules and regulations and own proper license and other legal requirements.
