Tips for a Successful Kitchen Remodel
We have a designer on staff with over 30 years of professional cabinet experience. They are here to help you every step of the way. We will handle all the details for you. This includes measuring, design layout, and finish/fixture consultation as needed. DBI will take the time to thoughtfully lay out your space in our design software. We present to you in full color 3D—you will be amazed how this will help you visualize your space! We don’t charge to layout your design, and we will work with you until it is exactly how you want it. Other cabinetry suppliers may offer quick and extremely basic design layouts, but we actually put thought into it! We not only want it to be right, but we want it to be right for YOU!
Order countertops after the cabinets are in
Measure your installed base cabinets to determine the countertop dimensions—don’t use the ones on your plans. The row of cabinets may have a different dimension after installation due to out-of-square walls. Place a carpenter’s square in the corner over the end cabinet. The corner might be narrower than the rest of the wall because of layers of joint compound. Measure to the farthest point on the wall over the cabinets. This is to avoid an ugly gap between the countertop and the wall after the countertops get installed.
Gain precious counter space
Pull-down racks give you instant access to kitchen essentials without the clutter of spice racks or knife holders. After the cooking, the rack swings up against the underside of the cabinet. You can buy ready-made racks or buy a pair of hinges and make your own wooden rack to hold knives, spices or other small items that take up counter space.
