IT TAKES A VILLAGE
A carefully planned renovation really does take a village! I’m amazed at the number of design professionals that it takes for a kitchen project!
When you think about all of the skilled people that will play a role in your kitchen renovation or new construction project, it’s surprising and can be overwhelming. You can see from my illustration that the number of individuals involved in your renovation can be dozens!
Don’t be intimidated, though! Here’s my advice: There are two things that you cannot compromise when planning a kitchen project: 1. You must be organized, and 2. You should engage with experienced professionals. Remember that ‘you get what you pay for’. I cannot remember a time in my life when that hasn’t been true, and my home means too much to me to risk using anything but proven and skilled craftsmen.
Charlotte has an impressive resume of beautiful architecture and design,not only in the older established neighborhoods surrounding center city but also in the newer areas of Mecklenburg county. Charlotte boasts a long list of talented design and construction professionals and top quality resources. When you hire a design professional, you are paying for years of experience (information) and relationships that they will bring to the table for your project.
