Cabinetry 101
From idea to quote to installation

 

Whether you are building a new home or just want to update the one you have, Katy Kitchen & Bath can help you design a luxurious, space efficient kitchen environment.

We sell mostly Pre-built Cabinets from Semi-Custom to Full Custom Cabinets. They have a better finish than the "skilled craftsman" can build you from his table saw, many of those with finishes only lasting 1 to 7 years.

Although, if needed to match your existing cabinets. -  We are frequently able to build you total custom cabinets in our shop to match your cabinets closely as well, though then - can't guarrantee the same finish as those described below.

The full custom factory cabinets --- using the better technology for finish --- will last you for over 20 years with proper maintenance and cleaning, much like the new, wonderful, pre-finished flooring with limited warrantees of 20 to 30 years.  Keep the salty and acidic soils off the cabinets with mild soap, rinse and dry... simple to care for them.

It looks better when we install these cabinets. Many installs "by others" or the homeowner are done poorly, sometimes even voiding the warranty. We have sold cabinets with "others to install" then often get called out to tear-out and re-install the cabinets from the "others" to correct them.

While we are assisting you in remodeling your kitchen we could order the Bath, Entertainment room or Office cabinets or build in that special niche to compliment your kitchen. We can make those places look like furniture with curved fronts for the Bath or Elegant Enkoball designs for the old world look you are desiring. We can even design, plan out the details and get your "Outdoor Kitchen" materials to be delivered at the same time as your indoor kitchen.
 

These are the steps to getting you a quote:

1) Choose the Wood Species or materials of construction; we can help you to understand the differences.

2) Choose the stain or paint colors for the outside of the cabinet color; we can help you with this process.

3) Choose the door style wanted; we can help you narrow down the selection by showing you some examples. 

4) Choose the quality range you desire; we can help you select the benefits and features most important to you by examples and specification. 

5) The style of your home/area being remodeled is important.

6) The value of your home and budget are important considerations to select the remodeling materials or the level of quality that may be expected in your home when you go to sell your home.  Investment in your home and the return on your investment may differ depending value of your home and your neighbors' homes.

7) Who are the decision makers; Who is paying for it; What is the scope of the work to be done; Where is the project to be installed; Are you living there now; When do you plan to start the project; and What is the budget? These are all important questions to have addressed before you begin a renovation/repair/upgrade project.

8) There is a process which is part of every remodel experience. The remodel process is dusty for the take out of your old materials; the electrical or plumbing upgrades or repairs may need to be done after take out and could take weeks to finish depending on the degree of the remodel. Some cabinet installs could take a couple of days ----  some can take a months more depending on the project and the degree of changes to be done. Three (3)  plus months is not uncommon for a project with electrical, plumbing, and wall moving or wall changes.   We do not use large crews with strangers in your home.  We are a small company with background checks on all of our employees.

8) Payment of your design fee or consultation will be the next step to get you on our list of clients to be processed.  We are busy and we are working with current clients and ongoing jobs as our first priority. "Design fees paid" puts you next on our "TO DO" list!

           A) We have a service for Consultation for $75./hr (starting from when we leave the office til when we are finished with your home appointment), OR           B) Design fee of $750.00 for a simple kitchen redesign on home of up to 2750 sq ft; a design fee of $1000.00 for homes 2750 - 4250 sq ft; or a design fee of $1500.00  for larger homes of 4250 sq ft or more ..(to be applied to the purchase of your Kitchen Cabinets when purchased from us).  

Often kitchens have been running from $25,000 in a $120,000 home with 1500 sq ft  -   to well over $200,000 - (maybe $80,000 for the cabinet portion of the remodel before installation and flooring,countertops, lighting, splash and appliances) in a home valued at over $800,000. 

You may rough figure a ball park of about 25% of the value of your home for a complete kitchen remodel.

Installation: This is a major concern to me: With a clients' outlay of this kind of money in the cabinetry I would like to see they get a beautiful install as well as beautiful materials for their investment.

There is a large difference between " jobsite built custom cabinets" where finish needs touch up after less than 7 years -

and pre-built  fully custom manufactured cabinets built to  YOUR  specification, construction and finish with a baked on finish.

Let us show you our extensive selection of Kitchen cabinets and countertops, flooring and unusual hardware to give your kitchen the unique elegance you require.

 

Overview

Whether you are building a new home or just want to update the one you have, Katy Kitchen & Bath can help you design a luxurious, space efficient kitchen environment.

We sell mostly Pre-built Cabinets from Semi-Custom to Full Custom Cabinets. They have a better finish than the "skilled craftsman" can build you from his table saw, many of those lasting only 1 to 7 years, although we are able to provide those when nothing else really works.

They have better finishes that will last you for over 20 years with proper maintenance and cleaning, much like the new, wonderful, pre-finished flooring with limited warrantees of 20 to 30 years.

It looks better when we install these cabinets, many installs "by others" or the home owner are done poorly, sometimes even voiding the warranty. We have sold cabinets with "others to install" then often get called out to tear-out and install the cabinets from the "others" doing so badly.
