Here at S&S Custom Kitchens, we use the latest state of the art CAD SYSTEM called 2020 Design. 2020 Design is recognized as the leader in providing detailed and realistic drawings for kitchen designers. In turn, our clients who have a hard time visualizing are able to grasp the design concept of their kitchen with ease. Designing also involves listening to our clients. I’ve said this before that some of the best kitchen idea’s have come from my clients themselves. So modern technology and just listening technology come together to create your design.
It’s been said in this industry that “ITS ALWAYS EASIER ON PAPER“. It’s a phase I used when I installed and had design issues that I had to discuss with the designer. With that in mind, I always let my clients understand that a good installer makes it all come together. What I put on paper and what I order becomes the artist paint palate. In this case the installer. It’s his craftsmanship that makes the design come alive and that has a cost. Here at S&S Custom Kitchens, we make sure that a qualified installer is on every job.
At S&S Custom Kitchens we educate our clients on basically 2 types of cabinetry. FRAMED & FRAMELESS cabinetry. Framed cabinets are your usually 1 ½’’ wide or 1 ¾’’ wide frames of solid wood connected to the main plywood box. Here your doors and drawers are installed on them. Type of doors would be the traditional overlay or your full overlay door.
FRAMELESS cabinetry basically is the box without the frame. Here we always recommend using ¾ plywood. Type door for this would be the full overlay door. Frameless cabinetry also caters to the contemporary styling. The advantage to Frameless is that it gives more real estate over the Framed cabinetry. You gain about 8 to 12 % which in turn for every 5 to 6 cabinet can give you a free one.
This part of a project can come into play when changes are desired. For example, you want to change the footprint of the kitchen. Another example you may want a bigger window or your planning on moving the window. Some homeowners may want to open up a wall to the living or dining room to create an open concept. Then some homeowners desire an addition, with a kitchen added on.
Whichever change is desired S&S Custom Kitchens has the resources and contractors, who at the same time are craftsmen to get the job done. Our contractors work with their own electricians, plumbers, painters and coordinate their work. All are insured.
