Everything you wanted to know

Kitchens are like most anything else that you purchase: the costs are entirely dependent on the price of the materials chosen and the complexity of the job. An industry rule of thumb is to consider 10 to 20 percent of the house’s market value when estimating a kitchen remodel. It is good to keep in mind that a remodeled kitchen is an investment that will increase the value of your home. We offer cabinetry at many different price levels to fit your budget and give you the best design within that budget.

We offer many wood options for cabinets, such as birch, cherry, maple, oak, and hickory, as well as different styles of cabinets – raised panel, arched panel, and flat panel. Our kitchen design team can either build custom cabinets or install manufactured cabinets of all kinds, which are supplied by Aristokraft, Timberlake, Decora, Medallion, and Shrock. Just tell us what you need and we will get it for you from the  ebay soiurces there are.

The older your home is, the more likely your kitchen is cut off from the living and entertaining areas. By removing all or part of the wall separating your kitchen from the living areas, you can transform both spaces. Today’s lifestyle is not as formal as it once was. Formal dining rooms and isolated kitchens do not work with how most families intermingle and socialize today. Opening up these spaces will transform, not only your home but your gatherings with family and friends.

Again, it will depend on the size, complexity and features of your remodel. We will work together to develop your desires for your new kitchen. We will begin with our design phase where we will blend your ideas with our kitchen remodeling skills to come up with various options that will ultimately lead to the perfect plan for your new kitchen. Typically, a kitchen remodel will take six weeks.

Yes, of course. We carry a full line of products that can meet most budgets. Our creative design team can really help you stretch your dollar. What we don’t do and won’t do is “cut corners.” We believe that to be the “Best Price” it always must be a “Complete Price” and meet the client’s objectives with products, design, and service that will never “disappoint.” If you have a smaller budget, it is even more important for you to put your investment in the trustworthy hands of our professionals.

Designs provide you with far more ideas, more inspiration, more attention to detail, more service, and more quality options for your budget. If you choose us to install and do the complete project, our team oversees every aspect of your renovation including all the general contracting, tradespeople, schedules, and project details to ensure a seamless installation. Stop in for a free in-store consultation or sign up for a phone consultation for advice.

We are dealers of numerous appliance manufacturers, both built-in and free-standing; please refer to the products page in the client resources section of the website for a list of these manufacturers and brands. We highly recommend clients purchase their appliance package through us for several reasons. We offer highly competitive and often the lowest prices available for appliances. Plus, we work with the best brands in the market.

Well, at A1 Kitchens, we do not view appliances as a profit center, we view it as an added-value service part of our business. We do it because it’s a win-win. It’s a win for both of us because we take the responsibility off of you, we give you the lowest price, and we control the ordering, timing, and delivery of the product. We also know that there will be no last-minute substitutions of a product that doesn’t get communicated to us that could potentially cause problems with the sizing or the installation.

A design fee works to ‘reserve’ our services, assuring your priority and quality. The design fee is ultimately applied to the total cost of your kitchen remodeling project. The advantage to you in paying a design fee is that not only are a set of plans generated. Nevertheless, Ai Kitchens does not charge a design fee, so there is no need for you to worry about affording consultation service from us.

The best way to remodel your kitchen on a tight budget is to replace things gradually, rather than completing the entire job at once while settling for lower quality products. Maybe start with just upgrading the cabinets and painting. Then add in new appliances and lighting at a later date. This allows you to still choose high-quality products without breaking your budget.

The best way to start planning your renovation is to look for design inspiration in magazines or online to help you form a clear picture of the look and style you want. Coming into the process with no ideas will only make the process take longer. Nevertheless, we are always committed to making the process as effective and as smooth as possible. That way, we won’t waste much of your time.
