If you’re planning your first kitchen remodel, one of the places you’re most likely to do in-store research is a home improvement store or a kitchen and cabinet showroom.
The advantage of visiting places that have appliances, flooring, lighting, countertops and other kitchen renovation essentials on display is obvious: it can introduce you to a range of products that are out there and inspire creative ideas. There’s a real value in being able to see what things really look and feel like before you buy them.
That being said, the downside of home improvement stores and kitchen cabinet showrooms is the simple but obvious one: these are retail settings where the sales staff has a job to do – sell products. Their recommendations are going to be based on the product lines the store carries, which may not necessarily be what would be best for your kitchen remodel.
As for the knowledge of the person making the recommendations? You don’t need any special construction industry or home renovation expertise to work in a home improvement store. The same person who helps you pick out $40,000 worth of cabinets may have been selling sneakers at the mall two weeks ago.
