My Kitchen Design is All Set…Think Again!

Our ongoing series from kitchen designer Cheryl Clendenon continues as she answers this common question.
“I have already thought everything through and won’t have any decisions to make”
If you are someone with design knowledge or your architect, if you have one, has already walked through every detail with you, then great. In my experience, this is a fantasy people like to tell themselves.
Make no mistake, there are a plethora of decisions that will come up that are not finalized…or job site conditions dictate changes. The one thing I hear constantly from clients is “I am so happy I have you there to explain what this or that means or help me make sense of a particular decision that must be made”.

You will be called on to make decisions that will be a permanent part of your home. And remember one important fact, delays cost money. A knowledgeable designer who understands the building process can save you time and in turn, money.

    Defective Chinese drywall has been causing homeowners and their families to deal with sulfur fumes that smell like “rotten eggs” and cause air conditioning coils to corrode as well as sinus and respiratory ailments, eye and skin irritation, persistent runny or bloody noses, headaches, and asthma. Some situations have become so severe that residents have had to vacate their homes. In some cases, victims have been harassed by builders into signing unfair, one-sided remediation agreements. I found a pretty good blog that has been providing valuable information on the problems:

  • Necessity is the father of Chinese inventions. We hear this supposedly funny saying from several people, and somehow, we find truth in it. China develops technologies that are bound to be the thing of the future. Recently, it has been one of the biggest producers of solar panels in the world. Clearly, China has a vision that the world is heading to the direction of utilizing solar energy in response to the continuous depletion of nonrenewable resources.
