When it comes to remodeling projects, they can quickly become confusing and unorganized. Product selections can be forgotten and delivery schedules can become mixed up, all while you’re spinning in circles becoming more and more overwhelmed. Before you start down this road, let us take a look at your project and see what we can do to help make it easier for you. We aren't just a company that does cabinets and remodeling, we can also design, manage, and finish your project for you. Below you will find the basic steps of our design process to help you understand the quality of service you can get when working through Beahm & Son Ltd.
The Design Process works in five steps; initial consultation, site visit, design concept development, final selections, and implementation. Each step is designed to constantly refine your ideas for the project as well give us a chance to get to know you. A key idea behind our design process is building a relationship with our clients to make sure that as we design and implement the project we can take care of each client’s special needs. A remodeling project should be exciting; it can change how you go about your day to day life. Hopefully as you go through our process you will start to feel your excitement building to start your own remodeling project.
The first two steps go hand in hand. Step 1 is the Initial Consultation, we recommend that you either stop into our showroom or schedule a time with one of our designers to come in after normal business hours. During this step we take some time to get to know what kind of project you are looking to work on and a little about your personal tastes. We will show you some of the display products around our showroom to give you ideas on what might be possible to work into the design. Step 2 is the Site Visit and directly follows step 1. While you are finishing up your walk through our showroom we will start scheduling with you a time to come out to your house to take some initial measurements as well as get a feel for the design and styles present in your house. We can either work around existing designs or come up with ideas to change from one style to another. After taking a lot of photos and getting more ideas of what specific ideas you are looking to see in the design, we can start step 3.
Step 3 is the Design Concept Development stage. This is where we use all of our notes from the interactions we have had with you and start creating a couple designs to fit your space. We have some skilled designers who like to think outside the box when it comes to designs. We have the basic designs down when it comes to remodeling but when given the chance to work in a unique space our creativity really stands out. We not only create elevation drawings for you to see the design but with CAD software we can print out a 3-D rendering of your space to show you how it will look as a finished project. Once we have finished our designs we will call you back to have a meeting where we will go over all the details of the project with you such as design choice, price estimates, and project timelines. If you like what you see and want to continue on with us it’s just two more steps to the end of the process.
Step 4 is the Final Selections step, after going over our bid you will see that we will leave you allowances on some line items. This is to allow you to freely select what accessories or optional items you would like to add or subtract from your project. This allows you to have some control over the price of the project so it can better represent what you want to see in your home for the cost. This can be a little time consuming depending on the size of the project but you will be working with one of our designers through this to help you with product details and color coordination. Once everything has been selected it’s time for step 5.
Step 5 is the last part of the process; Implementation. This is where we take over most of the headache associated with running your own remodeling project. We will coordinate product delivery, installation coordination, any building requirements, and site management for the remainder of the project. We have done remodeling work for decades now and understand how much of a nuisance it can be for your personal life. We take steps to minimize our impact on your day to day life by keeping your home as clean as possible during the renovations and providing constant support for any questions you might have throughout the process. If everything runs smoothly we will be done on schedule and you should be ready to show off your new space to all your friends and family.
