Hiring a professional Kitchen Designer is akin to using a specialist in healthcare instead of a general practitioner. If you have a specific healthcare need you seek the advice of the professional in that field. They will steer you in the right direction with up-to-date knowledge.

Consider me your kitchen and cabinet healthcare specialist. I live, eat, breath the latest design trends and I specifically consider the minute details in cabinetry, functionality and lighting when planing out your kitchen. While contractors excel at the construction and execution of the overall project, kitchen designers bring specialized expertise in to optimize the layout, functionality, and aesthetics of the kitchen space. Here are some compelling reasons to consider hiring a Kitchen Designer (me) alongside your contractor.
