ADVICE TO HOMEOWNERS: You deserve to be heard. Interview a designer before you select them to work on your project. Is the designer truly listening to your wants and needs, or are they going through the motions to make a quick sale and move on?
Once you've found a designer, take your time. Don't be overwhelmed by the wide variety of choices that you have and the decisions you will have to make. Come up with a wish list of what you have always wanted in your kitchen, ask lots of questions, and expect this to be a fun experience. Then you can truly enjoy the creation of your "dream" kitchen.
