Our Process

Traci Rauner Design will then configure sketches based on the information discussed at the initial meeting. General Kitchen layouts and pricing will be figured for the plans drawn.

We will present the plans for your Kitchen. We will show you the layout, traffic flow, storage improvements, aesthetics, and pricing. A signed contract or retainer fee is required for the plans to be released. **Retainer Agreement**

We will work with your contractors. If you do not have a contractor, we have reliable contractors that we work with regulary. Depending on the scope of the project, we will recommend 1 to 2 contractors that will be a good fit for your Kitchen Design.

We finalize your new Kitchen Design after receiving the pricing from the contractor. Traci Rauner Design will assist in selecting: Cabinet line, door style, color, counter materials and color, backsplash design, appliances, flooring, plumbing, lighting, and wall color.

Your new kitchen space is measured after demolition. A cabinet design will be drawn out and the plans will be provided for the subcontractors. Cabinets will be ordered after measurements of the new space are confirmed. ** ½ the payment is due at this time **

Cabinets will be delivered to your home (4-6 weeks from measure). We will meet with the carpenters at the time of delivery to go over any additional installation specifications.  **40% due at time of delivery**

Counters will be templated after the cabinets are installed. This could take 1-3 weeks depending on the type of counters, fabrication and installation.

Once the counters are installed, your new Kitchen Design is usually wrapped up within a week (depending on the size/scope of the project). We will go over any details at this time and answer any questions you may have.  **Final balance due at this time**

We would love the opportunity to photograph your finished Kitchen Design! We use the photographs on our social media outlets (website, Houzz, Pinterest, Facebook) and may also enter your project into design competitions!

Celebrate your functional and beautiful new space. Have fun entertaining friends and family, and make sure to refer them to Traci Rauner Design if they are looking to begin projects of their own!

Let’s meet at your home to discuss your new Kitchen Design or Remodel. Plan for about 1 ½ hours to go over everything from kitchen storage, aesthetics, cooking, entertaining style, and budget. See Client Questionnaire here
