C.V. Tile Cabinetry Design Process

Initial Meeting

The first meeting is by appointment at our showroom and generally takes 1 hour. Together we will review rough drawings, blue prints and magazine photographs collected. If the client doesn’t have drawings, fell free to take rough measurements so we can prepare a rough quote. We will examine wood species, door styles and specifications.

Preliminary Proposal Review Meeting

During the second meeting, we will meet at the showroom to review the preliminary pricing proposal which is a “ball park” estimate based on the information gathered during the initial meeting. If you are satisfied with the estimate, we move to the design phase. There are no charges for the initial two meetings.

Design Phase

To begin the design phase, Crescenta Valley Tile requires a signed Design and sales agreement and a 10% non-refundable retainer fee based on the estimate pricing disclosed in the preliminary pricing proposal. The 10% retainer fee is applied to the cost of your cabinetry.

Site Visit & Inception of Drawings

At the third meeting, the designer will come to your home, measure the existing space, discuss appliance selection and define detail design requirements. If the space is not finished, we can still begin the detail design process though we will need to re-measure the space once the walls are in.

Initial Detail Design Review Meeting

At the fourth meeting, we will prepare floor plans and elevations of the proposed design. The client will now see the new space coming alive! In the design review we solicit feedback on the design, door styles, wood species, style and functionality of the design. Detailed information gathered during this meeting will be used in order to arrive at the design of your dreams.

Final Design Review Meeting

Once the desired design is completed and approved, we will prepare the final pricing and specification approval. The final layout and elevation drawings, cabinetry specifications and final pricing are reviewed and signed off, enabling the cabinetry to begin the Delivery Phase

Delivery Phase

When you are ready to place your order, a fifty percent remaining balance deposit is required in order to get the cabinetry into Build Process.

Final Payment and Delivery

The Kitchen Designer will coordinate shipping and site delivery. The remaining balance of the cabinetry is due two days prior to the shipment arriving from the selected cabinetry manufacture. The Kitchen Designer will be on site (local deliveries only) to ensure all cabinetry arrived as specified, provide installation documentation, and assist with any questions or issues during the installation.
