Take Photos and Basic Dimensions

Home designers possess the expertise, creativity, and flexibility to help you fully realize what you would like from your renovation project. But to accomplish this, they will need to know details about the room in question.

When you are ready to discuss the specifics of your project with one of our experts, you should bring information about this space with you to your appointment. Take basic measurements of the room. You can fill in these details on a grid to illustrate the space. Cabinet Discounters offers a detailed planning guide available on our website.

You can follow this guide to the best of your ability. Cabinet Discounters always comes out to confirm the dimensions before ordering. Please bring photos of the room as well. They are just as important as the dimensions.

Brainstorm Goals for Your Project

Many people who want to remodel their homes have certain goals in mind for their end result. Other people might realize they need an upgrade but are unsure what the finished product should be. In either instance, a designer can help you narrow down your ideas into a more solid plan for your project.

They will ask you questions regarding your style as well as your intended function for the room. If you want to redesign your kitchen, for instance, how frequently will the space be utilized and for what purpose? Who will use the space? Do you have specific appliances or items you would like to highlight in the room? The designer will also inquire about what you like about the current space and about problem areas.

They will ask about your budget as well. This way, they can find the best way to achieve your dream aesthetic and function of the space without compromising your finances.

If you have an idea of what you would like for your space, bring reference photos. Searching through other completed designs can aid you in shaping what you would like for your room as well if you are not yet decided. You can search through past projects from Cabinet Discounters in our online photo galleries.

Our designers are highly qualified and have years of experience. We draw on that experience and the customer’s desires, tastes, and needs to design the space within the budget.
