Working with Wood Classics: A Step-By-Step Guide

Now that you’ve made the exciting decision to add custom wood cabinetry to your home, here is a step-by-step guide of what to expect when working with Wood Classics:

  1. The Initial Meeting.  In our first meeting, you will meet with me, an NKBA Certified Kitchen Designer, to discuss your needs, design style, color and wood style, along with finish options. The meeting, which averages about an hour (but we’re happy to take as long as you need), takes everything into account – from form and function to size and space.  Preliminary measurements are taken and next steps reviewed.
  2. The Preliminary Design.  Following this first meeting, we layout a preliminary design and cost estimate.  This preliminary plan is presented either in person or via telephone.  This is your opportunity to provide detailed feedback, which then is incorporated into the next stage design.
  3. Revised Plans Presented.  A revised design is presented for your review, along with any revised pricing / estimates.  Once you’ve approved the plan and cost estimate, we collect a 10 percent deposit and schedule a final measure.
  4. Final Approvals.  Following the final measure, we provide you with color and finish samples, door samples and a final drawing.  Once you sign and approve, we collect a 40 percent deposit and the cabinets go into production.
  5. Schedule Installation.  As the job nears completion, we schedule a date for installation.
  6. Delivery and Installation.  Our NKBA-certified installers deliver and install your job as scheduled.  If work is done as part of a larger remodel, we come in once all work is complete and do the final detail work and collect the final payment.
