Consider us as part architecture studio, part construction company, part cabinet shop, and part concierge service. This means that we have the capability of handling the entire project for you, so you don’t have to go around to multiple shops to get the project done. You already have a lot going on in your life, and becoming a project manager is not what you want to be doing.

Here are just a few benefits you’ll enjoy while working with us:

Enjoy the convenience of having everything under one roof

You’re a busy person and you don’t want to be running around the entire bay area trying to piece your kitchen together. And you don’t want to be dealing with multiple service providers and vendors to get the job done either. If you do, that quick project can quickly turn into a full time job.

We have everything you need to remodel your kitchen, bathroom, or your entire home under one roof. We’ll take your project from that sketch on the napkin all the way to final touches in your newly remodeled home.

Our designers and interior architects will bring out your best ideas, and put together a design that fits you and your home. We’ll help you select the cabinets, countertops, flooring, appliances, accessories, and everything else you’ll need. We’ll take care of the structural engineering if needed, and permitting with the city. And best of all, we’ll take care of the entire installation and remodeling process, and manage everything for you, so you can sit back and relax while we handle it all.

Live with least disruption to your life

Design and remodeling your home doesn’t have to overwhelm your entire life. The process can be easy, fun, and enjoyable–and we’ll make sure that it is! Since we’re handling the entire job, you can focus on your own projects with the least amount of disruption. You’ll get to take care of all the fun things, while we take care of the rest.

You do the fun stuff, we take care of the difficult stuff

Putting together a wishlist, playing with colors, picking out cabinets and countertops is fun. Ordering, scheduling, installing, and project managing is time consuming and not fun. Thankfully, you get to do the fun stuff while we take care of the rest, so you can focus on the things that are important to you.

Feel more secure by dealing with only one company

Our designers, interior architects, carpenters, installers, plumbers, electricians, etc., work for us. We handle all transactions and scheduling with different vendors too. We’re solely responsible for the entire project, so you never need to feel like a middleman dealing with different vendors, or with any issues that may arise.

We are also fully licensed and bonded, so you can sleep well knowing that you and your home are protected.

Your budget will go further

Many homeowners chose to handle the entire remodeling project on their own by going with multiple vendors and service providers in hopes of saving money. But, let’s face it, every company out there needs to keep their lights on. When you’re dealing with multiple companies, you need to keep a lot of lights on. But, by offering all of the services you need to remodel your kitchen and your home, we do not have to rely on any particular service to keep the light on. It means that you’re getting the whole package at a discounted rate.

In fact, it’s not unheard of spending upwards of 20% of the entire budget just on architectural drawings. With us, you’ll pay a fraction of that, so you can save your budget for other things you’ll enjoy.

Also, we’ve assembled an extensive lineup of products from various manufacturers to ensure that we can meet most budgets, while providing exactly what you want.

We understand Design

There are many great contractors out there who can remodel your home. However, many contractors do not understand design principles. The result is a beautifully crafted cookie-cutter kitchen or bath that is indistinguishable from most other spaces out there. You want your space to be one-of-a-kind. You want it to feel uniquely yours. Our designers are interior architects will deliver that designer touch and ensure that your kitchen or space is as individual as you are.

We understand Construction

Many independent architects and designers lack critical construction insights which can result in unnecessary construction costs due to unoptimized designs. Fortunately, we are experts in both field. Since our carpenters and installers work side-by-side with our designers–and likewise, since our designers spend a lot of their time on the jobsites–the projects are designed with construction costs in mind. We know construction well, and we have a handful of tricks up our sleeves to reduce costs without cutting corners.

Our estimates include more

Traditional design and remodeling process relies on completing the designs first, and then bidding the work with independent contractors. Oftentimes, only at this point, customers learn that actually building the design far exceeds their allotted budget. This will never happen with us.

We can estimate and design with the entire budget in mind. We’ll not only make it look great, but we’ll ensure that it can be build within your budget.

We communicate better

Anyone in the industry can tell you that majority of problems or conflicts that arise during projects simply results from miscommunications. When you’re bringing in multiple vendors and subcontractors to perform certain parts of the job, who may not be familiar with each other, the potential for miscommunication is huge. And when problems do arise, you’re usually stuck in the middle dealing with the consequences. You don’t want to be doing that!

We’ve worked with each other for years, even decades. We know each other very well and we communicate very well. Our designers, installers, carpenters, plumbers, electricians, are our own employees, and this ensures proper communication through the entire process of the project.

Likewise, we’ve worked with our prefered vendors and suppliers for years. We have great relationship and communication with them. We understand each other processes, and little nuances of our businesses, and because of that we can prevent most potential problems far before they happen.
