Picking Florida Kitchen Designers

finding a Florida kitchen designerBefore starting any selection process it’s best to have an overall goal or set of goal. Simply “I’d fancy a new kitchen” isn’t going to be enough and you’ll only end up wasting precious time in the designer selection process. You could actually be considered to be potentially poor client (the best Florida kitchen designers can be very busy, with months-long waiting lists).

It may be you’d like to have much more counter area for a hobby or small business, you may wish to get the most of spectacular views, allow more daylight into the room, create a breakfast zone – or any range of wants and wishes. How does your family work in your kitchen? Are you a professional chef or do you simply microwave ready made meals? Do you do much entertaining? Do you bake many cakes?

Making a list of these requirements and making notes as to how you all use your kitchen – along with any concepts of the materials and colors you’d like in this kitchen remodel project – will all help enormously in the initial sit down with your kitchen designer, assisting the designer to understand you as a potential new client and saving their time in any initial complimentary consultations.

With the general foundations of your needs and wants – it’s now time to look at the designers themselves.

Start with the Web

The net has made finding and choosing kitchen designers in Florida much easier.

looking for Florida kitchen designers using the webIt’s easy to look on specialist kitchen review sites like KitchensRated, search trade associations such as the National Kitchen and Bath Association’s Florida local chapter, or search the Florida section of the BBB

Almost all pro kitchen designers will be certified members of trade associations like the NKBA, or have obtained design qualifications from specialist groups like the National Council for Interior Design Qualifications (NCIDQ).

These awards demonstrate technical competence as well as the breadth of their grasp of design, building codes and construction standards. If you’re paying for kitchen design, you want competence!

Armed with a shortlist of kitchen professionals, it’s now time to visit their websites. In this day and age, all professional kitchen designers run websites – to help showcase designs and past projects to potential clients within Florida.

After examining their website, how do the designers come across to you? Do they display examples of past kitchen projects? Do they show any client testimonials? Is all contact information easy to find? Does everything work?

Visit Your Shortlist

It’s time to meet the kitchen designers on your shortlist. Certainly it might be easier to have them visit your home – but first go see their office, design studio or kitchen showroom to get a feel for their professionalism.

What do you feel? Do you get on well with them? Does everything seem well run? Is the showroom busy? Have a look at photos of their current remodeling projects – good kitchen designers like to carry folders filled with before and after photos from past client jobs. Could they apply to you?

Do they have display kitchens set up? If so are these put together well and well cared for? Do the designers only work with particular kitchen cabinetry manufacturers? If they do, read their reviews too!

If you’re able to arrange to see at least one of the kitchens, it should be a worthwhile task – ask the owner their favorite things about their kitchen, how the floor plan is to work with and how well they worked with the KD.

Did anything go wrong? If yes how well was it resolved?

By following the steps above, you should be able to find the perfect Florida kitchen designer for your needs – and end up with a kitchen to be proud of!
