Custom kitchen cabinets are an important part of any home improvement project. They’re also a great way to add value to your home while improving its functionality. Finding a designer that understands the nuances and complexities of designing custom cabinetry is paramount to a successful design. This blog will assist you on how to find a custom kitchen designer.
Start with a Budget
Before you start shopping for custom kitchen cabinets, make sure you have a budget in mind. You’ll need to consider things like materials, labor costs, design options, and more. When speaking to design firms this will help you eliminate those outside your budget.
Do Some Research
If you’re looking for a designer who specializes in custom cabinetry, there are several ways to find them. Check out our Find a Dealer page to see if there is an authorized Kountry Kraft designer near you. If there is no designer in your area listed on our website, check with local trade organizations such as the National Kitchen & Bath Association (NKBA). Look for a designer-certified CMKBD assuring they have completed the appropriate training to design your project. The American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) also has members skilled in this area. These groups often list members by location. Next, search online using terms like “kitchen cabinet designers” or “cabinet maker.” Finally, ask friends and family for recommendations.

Hire a Professional
You’ll need to hire a professional to design your new kitchen. This includes choosing materials, designing the layout, and installing the cabinets. It’s also important to consider the size of your space when selecting a designer. Smaller spaces require more attention to detail than larger rooms, as every inch counts.
