Frequently asked questions are listed questions and answers.
How much will my cabinets cost?
Cabinets vary dramatically in price just like cars or houses. Entry-level cabinets are less expensive than cabinets with special finishes and upgraded storage features. Designer Kitchen & Bath provides cabinetry that fits most any budget.
How long will it take to get the cabinets I order?
Order time varies depending on the manufacturer and the complexity of the job. The minimum time is roughly four weeks and can be as much as eight weeks during peak times of the year.
Can you design my kitchen from a sketch of the room that I provide?
We can certainly start with a sketch you provide. However, we will always do our own measurements to verify that the design will actually work.
What is the best type of countertop for the kitchen? For bathrooms? For the laundry room?
There are many possible countertop choices. As with cabinets, your budget needs to be matched with your desire for flexibility of design and product longevity. Laminate, solid surface, quartz, and granite are all good choices
Can you match my existing cabinets or furniture?
All woods and stains change color over time—some more so than others. In many cases, Designer Kitchen & Bath can find cabinetry that may be compatible with your existing cabinets or furniture. In no case can we guarantee an exact match.
What construction features should I look for when choosing cabinets?
Certain construction features are a sign of quality cabinets. A savvy consumer will look for things such as finished backs in all cabinets, drawer guides that also support the drawer bottom, multi-way adjustable hinges, adjustable shelves, and a wide range of heights and depths. Newer convenience features include “soft-close” hinges and drawers, multi-function drawer systems, and optional task lighting.
What's the difference between manufactured cabinets and custom-made cabinets?
Years ago there was a significant difference in the sizes and finishes available from "custom" cabinetmakers and the "stock" manufacturers. Today, many cabinet manufacturers offer custom sizing and finishes that rival, and may even exceed, the possibilities of a local custom cabinet shop.
Do you provide cabinets for remodeling only, or also for new construction?
Designer Kitchen & Bath works with a number of reputable remodelers and can provide cabinets through your contractor or directly to you for your kitchen or bath remodeling project or room addition. We will coordinate directly with your builder and also consult directly with you.
