Hiring a Professional Kitchen Designer
Been through this website and decided that it’s simply to much work for a ‘do it yourself’ kitchen renovation? Not to worry – there are professional kitchen designers out there who are more than happy to do the work for you (provided that you pay them of course)!
When it comes to choosing the right kitchen designer, your options are endless, as there are dozens and dozens available in the greater Melbourne area. The key is knowing what to look for in a professional kitchen designer:
When researching different designers, be sure to have a look at their portfolio of work. Not only will this give you an idea of what they can do for your kitchen, you might find some great kitchen ideas and inspiration through their past work.
It’s important to make sure that the designer you hire has a good reputation and has positive feedback from past clients that they have worked with. Generally, a good designer will have testimonials or reviews on their website for you to check out. Alternatively, take a look at their Facebook or Google Plus page – this is the better option to go by when checking reviews, as you can have peace of mind that they are genuine (as they cannot be deleted by the owner if they are considered not good).
A great kitchen designer will offer a free consultation before you make any decisions on booking them in. This will give you an opportunity to chat to them about your ideas, which will, in return, give you the chance to see if you can imagine yourself working with them or not.
Without an initial consultation, you may find yourself working with someone that you don’t get along with or who isn’t willing to listen to your ideas and thoughts.
