Concept Development

At Artistic Kitchens & Baths, we know you're not an expert in cabinetry design, but you are the expert when it comes to knowing what appeals to you. We'll discuss your design goals, visit the installation site, and work with you to develop the concept.

Finalizing Your Plan

3-D rendering of kitchen concept Our showroom provides many examples of options and styles to help you make design decisions.  Our showroom is located in Southern Pines, NC.

Our process is simple.  First, we create an estimate of the cost based on our initial scoping study.  Once complete, and the small design retainer has beed paid, we commence the detailed construction of all of your plans.  The fee is fully credited toward the complete project and allows us to dedicate our professional resources to your unique design, cabinetry purchase and installation.

We continue to collaborate with you to finalize these plans.  The collaboration process could take several weeks to finish.
