Residential Design Firms

Remodeling projects start with design and feasibility. The process can seem arduous, but vital to the success. Some of the best Seattle General Contractors will tell you, no matter the remodeling project, you’ll need to have good design to begin. The question is, how do you get these? And where? How will that design work into that very distinct kitchen-remodeling project that is yours? All good questions that can sometimes can be frustrating to sort out.

If your kitchen is more than 30 years old, many Seattle Remodeling Contractors have a challenging time contending with all the components of the kitchen. It’s not uncommon to see plumbing that’s not been upgraded or electrical system that could barely accommodate a toaster oven. Do walls seem out of place? Or is the kitchen cramped and dark? Or doesn’t use the space efficiently? What’s a person to do?

Sometimes the kitchen was designed with other perimeters that have been outdated. Sometimes the design looks like it was done on the back of a napkin. Regardless, your new kitchen can be the best room in the house, and will accommodate all the newest ideas while still looking like it was well integrated into your home.


That’s an important question that has everything to do with design. When looking for the best Seattle General Contractors, we want Kitchen Creations & Remodeling to be on the short list.

Kitchens give special consideration to lighting counters, as this is the primary task area in kitchens. Where possible, locate the sink in front of a window for good use of daylighting. Locate luminaries near the areas of greatest use and on both sides of the primary work areas to control glare. Install downlights over the counter 1 to 2 feet from the wall, but avoid locating them over the upper wall cabinets. To minimize shadows, avoid locating the lamp behind the person using the counter. Use undercabinet luminaries to avoid shadows under overhead cabinets.

    If you hear something for long enough, you start to believe it. But in my experience, some widely accepted beliefs are based more on fiction than fact. At the risk of trampling on a few sacred cows, I’ve collected ten popular myths about sales and selling that just haven’t held true for my business. In each case, I’ve taken the road less traveled, and it hasn’t hurt me one bit. If your current sales techniques buck conventional wisdom, it may help you to know you’re not alone.

  • What is the timeline for the project?

    Is one of my favorite question.I can tell you precisely, when I look the the build schedule. With all the multiple things I have going on, I can tell you when you should expect completion. These are all my project management skills coming through. So again, when will the project be complete? That’s dependent on how full the build schedule is at that moment.

  • What is the total budget for construction?

    Okay, maybe I like the question even more then the previous. This is were your Scope Cost Analysis (SCA) comes in, and we give you a detailed breakdown cost of your project. Something in the range of 20+ pages of scope details. You see the entire project cost flow into “How did we get here” question.

    People often don’t know what they want, have trouble putting what they want into words, or simply want everything they see (after all, everyone was once 3 years old in an ice cream shop.(To make matters worse, different people want different things) Identifying project objectives and getting everyone to agree on them is HARD work. Regrettably, if you try and skip this step, you the stakeholder will be quick to tell you if they get something they don’t want.

    Estimating is part science, part sorcery, so it takes time to master. I’m trying to forecast the future as accurately as possible. To make my estimates more precise I can choose an appropriate estimating method, obtain estimates from experienced professionals, ask for a range instead of a single number, and avoid the estimate padding game. To improve future estimates I tell project bidders how their estimate compared to the actual project numbers.

  • How a Remodeling Project is Initiated?

    Okay, I like all three questions, but who’s counting?
    (i) First step, I need to get an idea about the scope of your project.
    (ii) I give you a VERY ball park estimate and get a feel for what your trying to accomplish, and how I can give you the widest range of information, so you can make the best informed decision possible leading to next steps.
    (iii) You hire me to work on your design and I get back with you in about 5 days.
    (iv) After your approval of the design, I move to finish the SCA.
    (v) I develop a Scope Cost analysis based on the design.
    (vi) We meet again to go over the scope cost analysis and workout any design issues and hopefully sign a contract. Or, we talk more about your design and were the costs are coming from to design around those.
    (vii) After the contract is signed, your put into the build schedule, and the project start and completion dates are given. Then we start this adventure called remodeling.
