Everything You Need to Know about Our Kitchen Design Process

Is your kitchen dark, dated, and dysfunctional? Are you lacking sufficient storage space? Difficult to entertain in?

I hear you! Today, we will be taking you through the process of how the Douglah Designs team can assist in bringing your new kitchen to life.

Wondering how we pull together all of the design details and product selections for your dream kitchen? Let’s dive in…



Step 1: Initial Discovery Call

Our design process begins with a complimentary 15-minute discovery call. During this call, we will discuss your general scope of work, desired budget, and timeline. If all parties agree that we will be able to collaborate with you on your project, we will move forward with a formal in-home consultation.



Step 2: Site Visit & Renderings

We start with a site visit to measure and take photos of all spaces within the scope of work. Next, we will return to our offices and get to work on your design plan. Our design team will then create several renderings illustrating our design concepts and present them to you for review.



Step 3: Final Budget

After you’ve chosen a concept and we’ve made any necessary revisions together, we’ll finalize the budget. That budget will include all selected products, construction, tradespeople costs, and applicable contractor fees.



Step 4: Project Management

The beauty of working with a design-build firm is that all of the project management is included within our process. The Douglah Designs team works cohesively under one roof to manage your project. Our 30+ person team is made up of architects, designers, product specialists, and a full construction crew. Having this team in-house and working fluidly together saves you time, money, and headaches!



Step 5: Kitchen Installation

We begin construction of your new kitchen once permits have been obtained and products have been received. During construction, you will work directly with your assigned project foreman to ensure your project proceeds seamlessly and according to plan from start to finish. Your designer will visit the job site at certain milestones throughout the project to answer any questions that may arise and to check in on the overall progress.



Reveal Day!

On the final installation day, our team will be present to show you your new space and your kitchen will be revealed and photographed!

Your new kitchen is now ready to be the heart of your home. The household meeting point where your family gathers every night, and a creative environment to release your inner chef.

Ready for a professional to help you update your space and design your dream kitchen? It’s our passion! We can’t wait to hear from you!
