Remodeling your home can be one of the most rewarding experiences.

With over 15 years of experience, Andersonville Kitchen & Bath follows a step-by-step process to support our clients from start to finish.  

Let’s get started!

CONSULTATION

The first step in the design process starts with scheduling a complimentary consultation with our designer. When you visit our showroom, we will:

  • learn about your project vision
  • discuss your budget
  • help you get acquainted with our selection of high-quality products
  • provide feedback on project timeline expectations
  • share contacts from a network of contractors, should the client need a referral

Helpful items to bring for your consultation include:

  • Dimensions/layouts
  • Photos of your current space
  • Design inspirations; Houzz/Pinterest Ideabooks

 

AKB Chicago is affiliated with the National Kitchen and Bath Association.

Our design feedback will reflect NKBA standards and guidelines.

 

 

 

IN-HOME MEASURE

Once you are ready to begin the design process with AKB Chicago, our designer will visit your home to obtain precise measurements in order to begin designing your space.

  • For kitchen remodels, a $1,000.00 retainer fee is required to schedule the in-home measure; it is applicable to the purchase of designed cabinetry.
  • For bathroom remodels, a $1,500.00 non-refundable design fee is required to schedule the in-home measure and proceed with design services; it is not applicable to the purchase of designed cabinetry.

DESIGN PLANNING

After our designer measures your space, she will begin producing a custom design, tailored specifically to your needs and style. We will then schedule a time to meet with you again in our showroom for a design presentation, in which our designer will share with you realistic renderings of your envisioned space.

Topics discussed in your presentation will include:

  • Functionality of proposed design(s)
  • Purpose and placement of each individual cabinet
  • Reviewing samples of projected materials for your design
  • Any revisions you’d like to see rendered

REVISIONS AND ORDERING

After the initial design(s) is presented, collaboration between you, the client, and our designer will determine whether any revisions are desired.

  • Two revisions of this design are included in the original kitchen and bathroom design retainer deposits, should you request them after your presentation.
  • Additional revisions beyond those two, require another $500.00 retainer fee for design work.

Should you require floor plans with installation notes and dimensions before your order is placed:

  • For kitchen remodels, a $2,500.00 fee (also applicable to final cabinetry purchase) must be processed to release them
  • For bathroom remodels, floor plans with installation notes and dimensions are included in the design retainer

After revisions are complete, it’s time to order your cabinets!  You will receive your detailed floor plans with installation notes and cabinetry description, as well as expected shipping dates, to help you plan for the start of labor on your project remodel. 

PROJECT COORDINATION

After the order is placed, our Project Coordinator will be communicating with you regarding:

  • elements of the project timeline
  • scheduling deliveries, measure appointments, countertop or shower glass installations
  • checking on project status or concerns
  • resolving any unforeseen product issues

 

From start to finish, Andersonville Kitchen and Bath can help you make your design vision a reality!
