Refer to these questions and answers to help understand our process and how we can work together to achieve your dream space.

What’s the difference between working with an Architect or Interior Designer vs. a Kitchen & Bath Designer?

We work with allied professionals all the time, these are not mutually exclusive relationships. Usually an architect defines the general space and we do the detailing and specific planning. Interior designers help select colors and style but don't generally do the actual layout or drafting.

How does a kitchen or bath remodel affect the value of my home?

If the quality of the design and workmanship are consistent with the home and neighborhood, you will be making a wise investment.

According to Money Magazine, "For return on investment, the best home renovation is to upgrade an old bathroom. Kitchens come in second. The return on investment on a mid-range bath modernization is 102% of its cost. Kitchens can add about 90% of their costs to the home's value."

How long will my project take?

Including the design process, a kitchen remodel can take 6-8 months from start to finish. Each project is very different and we can’t give a one-size-fits-all timeframe for either kitchen or bath renovations. Once we are able to determine the specific needs of your project, we can provide you with a reasonable time table.

How much will my project cost?

The short answer… that depends on how much you want to spend. Our Design Team works closely with you to determine the costs associated with the kitchen or bath remodel and to help you develop a reasonable budget. The majority of Carmel Kitchens and Baths clients are referrals from satisfied customers who have had projects designed by our team. Carmel Kitchens and Baths always endeavors to design a project appropriate to the value of the home, not to expensive, and not too limiting.

Does Carmel Kitchens & Baths handle the entire project, or do I find other contractors for the flooring, lighting and décor?

Our job is to handle the whole design process from start to finish. Carmel Kitchens & Baths is a full-service design firm capable of handling all your project needs. Our staff enjoys numerous relationships with reputable contractors and suppliers and can hire a professional specific to your needs to help us build you the room of your dreams.
