Kitchen remodeling is one of the best gifts you could give your family. A cheerful and bright kitchen is the heart of the home. Most families find that a newly remodeled kitchen does a lot to bring the family together into a wonderful new space. Remember though... choosing the best kitchen remodeling contractor is the key to your new kitchen!
The designer and contractor you hire should have certain basic qualifications. The most important is experience, not only with design but also with bringing a project successfully to the finish line. A kitchen remodel can be a complex project involving many different trades. Does your designer have project management experience and/or a project management team that can bring his/her design to life without sucking the life out of your family? Can they demonstrate completed projects, and give you references of customers who have experienced what you are going to be going through? If you get references... call them.

Another important question to ask is:
Does the company have the proper licenses and insurance? Many companies claim to but don’t actually have them. They may have an occupational license, or they may tell you they pull permits through their friend's company. Make sure you understand exactly what their qualifications are. After all, you could be liable if their qualifications or insurance does not check out.
Choosing the right kitchen remodeling contractor is the first step to having the home of your dreams!
