Getting Started

While our kitchen designers will take thorough measurements before offering you a binding quote, you should note dimensions of the room, indicating any doors, windows, or hallways that impact the space, to facilitate your initial discussions with our designers. Other areas to explore when starting to conceptualize your kitchen is your design style and preferred kitchen shape.

Choosing Your Design Style

We all have a particular style. Some might be peculiar, others the epitome of tradition, but no matter what style you select we have a look that will satisfy your tastes. Learn about our styles below to classify your preference and find the cabinets that are right for you.

Casual Kitchen Design style.jpg

Causal

Taking a modern base and blending it with traditional detailing, our Casual styling is a balance of relaxation and refinement. Helping you build a room that says “home” and “you” at the same time, Casual style is about the personalization of the space and finding harmony between all of the individual elements. This style allows for a mixture of ideas and shows an appreciation for freedom, non-conformity and self-expression.

Contemporary

Walking a fine line between utilitarian and modern, Contemporary styling is all about open spaces and clean lines. Sparingly decorated with large scale, bold embellishments and usually dominated by more natural tones; Contemporary style relies on sleek, smooth and polished facades to create a modern level of elegance. When going for Contemporary, think streamlined, cultured and bold.

Rustic Kitchen Design.jpg

Rustic

Imagine a quaint country cottage where everything seems familiar and timeless. Rustic styling is built on the simple idea that everything in the room has been lived-in. At times raw and weathered, and at others softly distressed, this warm and relaxed style brings the charm of the outside in with natural materials, carved woods, heavy copper or iron and a hodge-podge of textures and embellishments that all come together to tell a uniquely long and rich story.

Traditional Kitchen Design.jpg

Traditional

Elegant, inviting and reminiscent of a not-so-distant past, Traditional styling is best summed up as ornate, rich and decorative. Usually embodying the golden age of Europe, Traditional uses a variety of colors, elaborate motifs and a blend of materials to breathe new life into century-old styling. And although it can seem "busy," this style maintains order and refinement through symmetry and balance.

Kitchen Shape

We all want our kitchens to be both beautiful and functional. And while you may have an idea of how you want your new kitchen to look, you’ll also want to understand the factors that impact how you feel in the space.
