Kitchen Design & Renovations
Kitchen Design & Renovations
The kitchen is the hub of the home. It’s a place where your family gathers to prepare meals, entertain or plan the day. Because it’s the most used room in the home, any kitchen redesign or renovation should maximize functionality and durability.
We begin every kitchen renovation with our discovery process. Using foundational knowledge, ergonomics and expertise, our design team finds ways to optimize every space, like limiting back-bending and maximizing cooking and traffic patterns. Your kitchen redesign plan will also include a functional lighting plan, cabinetry selections, appliances, type of flooring and plumbing fixtures – all tailored specifically for you. The result is a perfectly functional kitchen that also looks fabulous.

Kitchen Design Process

Our process starts with creating your design experience profile. The unparalleled William Standen system allows you to work collaboratively with our design team to creative a flawless space that is uniquely you. Our design team will then visit your space to obtain measurements, study traffic flow patterns, take a closer look at the structure of the home, and assess the current mechanical systems.
Following the in home visit, we will present a (kitchen, bathroom or whole home transformation) and renovation concept. Following a review, our designers will make any revisions and turn the concept plans into working construction plans indicating, electrical, plumbing, lighting, as well as any custom architectural details. At this time we select all product, from flooring to lighting. To help you picture our vision for your space, we will present your project design in a photo-realistic 3D rendering so that you can see what your future area will look like.
When designs move from the planning stages to the renovation process, and begin to transform into a finished product, anticipation sets in. We want you to indulge in these feelings of excitement and free you from any installation anxiety by revolutionizing the way a standard renovation works.

There were frustrations but you made it as painless as possible.
The design process went very well. The installation and management of the demolition & construction activities was outstanding!! Patrick did an incredible job addressing any and all issues. Most of the time the issues were addressed before we were aware there was one. We love the area that has been created by removing the wall between the kitchen and family room. All members of the team were very professional and helpful. Their experience was evident. Patrick directed the work as if it was his own home. Every decision was based on what would ensure we would be happy. The cabinets are great, the design is wonderful, but the construction activity and direction provided was incredible. Although the experience of being without a kitchen for eight weeks was painful, dealing with William Standen Co. was not!!! I cannot say enough about the level of service. Thanks for everything.

We are LOVING our new home. The layout has allowed for many parties already. I have never considered myself an entertainer but our new home is perfect for any occasion we have held. Someone told me recently that they couldn't understand why we would hire a designer but once they toured our home and saw the attention to even the smallest of details they were really impressed. My brother-in-law asked me if there was anything I would change now that we are living in the home. I told him without hesitation, ‘No! I love it all!’ We really want to express to you that we appreciate all your help with this project.
Due to the scope of the project that was undertaken, we are well pleased with the services. The quality and workmanship of the employees was fantastic. They went the extra mile to ensure we were pleased.
