If we are doing a complete project for you, there are design fees involved in the process. The fees are structured on a sliding scale, based on your project budget, and start at $3,500. When we begin to prepare several plan views of your space, the fee is due. Upon completion and selection of the floor plan you choose to work with, the design process moves forward with the preparation of detailed elevations. You have an opportunity to review and revise the floor plans and elevations before the pricing of the project begins. A budget is prepared so that you can see the direction of the financial aspect, and the design fee on your kitchen is then credited back to you against the price of the cabinetry. In the case of a bathroom, because there is so little cabinetry involved and a great deal of design work, the fee is retained.
