BUDGET

"There’s no denying kitchen remodels are expensive. While stock cabinets are the most economical, much is often sacrificed in the overall quality and aesthetic of your room. Especially in the kitchen — the heart of your home. Real Estate experts say that spending 8-12% of your home’s value on a kitchen remodel will be returned upon the sale of the home. In a kitchen remodel approximately 60%-70% of the total cost is product and 30-40% is labor. In a bath remodel, the labor percentage is usually equal to or higher than the product portion. In a kitchen remodel the three main categories are cabinetry, appliances and countertops. Cabinetry is not the category to cut back on as it’s the most expensive to replace. Less expensive appliances or countertops can more easily be replaced a few years down the road if the estimated remodel exceeds the budget.

 

OUR PROCESS 

 

START THE CONVERSATION    

We start the conversation with a quick call to assess your project size, timeframe, and your budget.  Together we determine if our availability and product offerings fit for your project needs.    We have created kitchen and bath planning information forms that make getting to know you and the scope of your project a breeze.  We have thought of everything, so you don't have to.  Our questions really allow us to understand what you need from your new space.  We will ask you a number of important questions regarding your project.  This information will allow us to give you a preview into the cost and timeline for your project.  Your time is valuable.  Once we determine if your project schedule and budget are feasible, we will ask you for a little more information before we meet. 

PREPARE FOR YOU APPOINTMENT 

Creating your dream space takes a little planning.  Here are some tips to make the most of the consultation you have with our designer and contractor.  We will ask you to send photos of existing space, rough dimensions, and inspirational images.  If a picture paints a thousand words .... bring ideas with you!  Show us what inspires you!  It is important for us to know your vision.  Check out places like Pinterest, Instagram, Houzz, and our project gallery to find your unique style.

GETTING TO KNOW YOUR SPACE

SITE VISIT - We meet at your project site to get to know you and your space.  Our priority is to understand your needs and create layouts that combine practical solutions with stunning design that perfectly tailored to your style and budget.   At this meeting we will take site measurements, access the current space, and determine if any additional work needs to be added to the project scope and proposal.  By the end of this meeting, you should have a ballpark estimate for your project cost.   Our preselected packages make it easy to see what you would be getting for your money.

PROPOSAL

We will meet to go over the Home Envy Proposal.  We will provide you with an overview of your project, outline of the scope of work to be performed, and cost estimate for material recommendations based on your budget and selection preferences.  It is not a contract or an invoice. Using your budget as our guide, we provide a comprehensive and thorough estimate.  At this point we can discuss any changes or modifications we may need to make to the plan.  Once you are ready to move forward with Home Envy We will move on to the planning and design phase.  Our collaboration with our business partners enables us to offer cost savings and value engineering suggestions for your project before you start.  Our designer will help guide you through the process.  Selena will help you make selections that stand out.  Selena will help you to determine what are some important features that are worth spending extra money on, or if we can accomplish a similar look for less.  Todd and Selena always have recommendations on how to keep your overall design intact and keep your project in budget.

PLANNING AND DESIGN RETAINER

The key to creating the space of your dreams within the budget, is proper planning.  The conceptual design sketches consider all the unique information we collected during our initial phone consultation and getting to know you meeting.  When you choose Home Envy, we will provide you with a detailed contract outlining the scope of work to be performed and the specification of materials to be used.  We will carefully review the full contract with pricing and fees with each client.  The contract will outline the process of refinement of design concepts, contractor services, as well as any additional services requested (Interior Design, Project Management).  Upon receipt of our design retainer (fees outline in the proposal), our designer will work in close partnership with you, keeping you informed along the way of any variations or fluctuations based on design or selections changes.  Your dreams may require fine tuning in the conceptual design phase.  We will present you with the materials we selected for your project along with 3D renderings of your space.  We will refine the plans based on your feedback until it all comes together for the final presentation.  We are here to make things easy for you and to ensure your complete satisfaction.
