“When we bought this house, I knew that I didn’t like the kitchen,” Beatrice said. “But what’s involved in making it better? I don’t even know where to start.”
When a friend suggested Beatrice work with a kitchen designer, “At first, I hesitated. We have a nice home, but we’re not what I’d call overly affluent. But then my friend said, “Working with a designer helps you save money in the long run, because you don’t wind up making foolish mistakes or bad decisions.”
As Milton kitchen designers, we can wholeheartedly concur that a big part of what we do is steer homeowners toward choices that are going to please them now and in the long term. This doesn’t always mean pushing the most expensive products, whether that’s flooring, cabinetry, or appliances. Instead, our goal is to help maximize the budget. Value and quality, longevity, durability, and sustainability are all factored into our recommendations, as well as a deep understanding of how you plan to use your new kitchen.
Kitchen designers also excel at providing direction that helps you achieve your goals, even if you’re not sure exactly what you want in your new kitchen just yet. For example, Beatrice didn’t know what she wanted in her new kitchen, but she knew very clearly what she didn’t like about the kitchen she had: it was too small, she felt closed in, all the storage was too high for her to reach conveniently, and the room was dark. Our role is to develop a strategy that addresses all of these issues, in a style she enjoyed, on her budget.
“I really appreciated the fresh ideas the Milton kitchen designer brought to my project,” Beatrice said. “We kept the foot print of the original room, but they opened up the back wall and built in some custom storage that really freed up the kitchen cabinetry. All of a sudden, there was a place for everything. And with the new windows and all the natural light that’s coming in, now the room is so open and airy – I love it!”
