How to Start the Kitchen Design Process – Cindy Kelly

Are you ready for Step 5?!

Hopefully you’ve made it through Step 1, Step 2, Step 3, and Step 4 and you’re ready to take the next step.

This is episode 5 in our 12 part kitchen remodeling series titled: 12 Steps to a Successful Kitchen Remodel.

I’ve been recording conversations with other kitchen industry professionals on exactly how to remodel your kitchen.

In this episode we cover how to start the design process with a professional. We walk through a typical initial client interaction with a kitchen designer.

I’m glad you get to listen in to this helpful conversation I had with Cindy Kelly. She is a kitchen designer in Beach Haven, NJ and runs Cindy Kelly Kitchen Design. She shares a ton of valuable information with us.

I really enjoyed talking with Cindy. We have very similar approaches to business. And we both love working with engineers (the joke’s inside)!

Cindy helps her clients renovate their kitchen from start to finish. She’s a pro and knows her way around the kitchen!

In this episode, you’ll discover:

  • What the good, better, best pricing model is
  • How to discuss your budget with a professional
  • Pro and Cons of a painted finish
  • The best way to go about getting an estimate

I hope you enjoy this fun conversation I had with Cindy Kelly.
