The SCKB Design Process


Your renovation journey starts with your initial contact.

We are so glad you found us! Whether you are a first timer or a veteran renovator, every project is unique. In order to unlock your kitchen or bathroom’s true potential, we will ask you a series of questions about your project including what room, style, budget, goals, timeline, who is already on your team and exactly what you need from us. The products and services we offer are extensive, the faster we fully understand your wishes, the better we can serve you.

Once we have established the scope of your project, we offer a no-charge in home consultation. During this one hour meeting we review your objectives, and give you a realistic and accurate assessment of your project’s potential.

If you decide to go to the next step, you may be asked to pay a nominal design retainer (this fee is based on the scope of the project and may be applied to your cabinet purchase). We will then measure the space and take thorough notes from which to start the design process. We will take several photos to share with our construction estimator from which we will draft our proposal.

Every project, regardless of budget deserves respect and our greatest effort. We will combine creativity, technical knowledge and years of experience to produce a well thought out design that encompasses everything you asked for…but look out! We will probably surprise and delight you with a few twists that you didn’t expect…after all isn’t that why you came to us in the first place??

At this time you will see a full set of drawings and an estimate outlining all of the elements that go into your project. This will include cabinetry, countertops, plumbing fixtures, tile, etc. For construction we will provide a scope of work and a preliminary quote. Our goal is to provide you with all of the information for you to take home to digest and work through the design in the privacy of your own home. We expect that you will have lots of questions and lots of feedback. So don’t think you are bothering us…ASK AWAY!

Should you decide to move ahead with your project, the process shifts to our DESIGN DEVELOPMENT stage.

You will meet the rest of our awesome team, and we will walk you through the many details of your project. We want to equip you to select the right materials for a balance of appearance, function and cost. Our job is to help you evaluate and prioritize your options.

This process can be 1 day or several weeks depending on the complexity of your project. Our goal is to make sure that nothing gets missed and we clearly outline your expectations. You will receive an updated and final quote based on your final selections.

Once the decisions are made we prepare contract documents. We take your trust in us very seriously. The purpose of our contract is to outline both of our responsibilities and to make sure you understand everything that will be happening. You will be asked to make a significant material deposit as well as a small construction deposit (typically $1000).

Then WE GET TO WORK. Our TEAM gets about the business of ordering all of your materials, procuring the permit (if required) and outlining a full package for our construction team. This is typically 2-12 weeks prior to start date depending on lead times for materials.

Once all of your materials are in and have gone through our inspection process, we are ready to begin. You can expect our preparation crew to provide thorough protection of your property. Tarps, dust barrier, floor covering and any other items needed to ensure your home is safe. Our team will work together to make sure things progress according to plan, and communicate what is happening and what you can expect. Our primary goal is to provide you with the smoothest and most efficient experience possible. While construction can be daunting, our years of experience have equipped us to foresee and circumvent many common issues.
Every client and every project is part of SCKB’s legacy that began in 1987. Being in your home and leaving behind a beautiful and functional space is a privilege. We will provide you with a complete packet of warranty information as well as Use and Care Instructions for maintaining the beauty of longevity of your beautiful new kitchen or bathroom. We want you to think of us as a long term partner for this, or any other project you may be considering in the future. You can count on us to be here!
