Design & Planning

Let's Get Started

While decorating shows on TV are fun and inspirational, the real life process of creating a new kitchen takes longer and involves more “behind the scenes” steps than first meets the eye.
At Century Kitchens & Bathrooms, we help you, from start to finish, in the planning, design and completion of your new kitchen or bath space. To speed the process and to eliminate as much stress for you as possible, we’ve created a Planning Guide to help you answer some important questions.

Please download The CKB Planning Guide, and then follow through on our suggested planning steps to create your dream kitchen or space.

Of course at anytime you may contact us for a Free Consultation.
Discovery

The initial step in the planning process is discovery. Discovery is information gathering. Download our Planning Guide for suggestions on the kind of information you should consider when planning to meet with a design professional at Century Kitchens & Bathrooms. Especially important is your wish list and pictures of kitchens or spaces you like. The more information you gather in discovery, the easier it will be for the design professional to help you create the kitchen you desire within your budget.  Once you have your information, just contact us to schedule an appointment and we will assist you in getting started. Our showroom can help inspire you to meet your goals.

The Installation Process

Prior to enjoying the pleasures of your new kitchen or bathroom, there is, of course, construction.
In order to make it as easy as possible, we invite you to take advantage of the great tips we’ve put together for you.

First, start making a list of all the restaurants you’ve been meaning to try. When the microwave gets old, your list will come in handy for a quick escape!

Second, in a fond farewell to your old kitchen, spend some time in it, cooking. Make family favorites and throw them in the freezer. We promise you…you’ll thank yourself later!

Before the cabinets arrive
  • Decide on a safe, enclosed area for the cabinets and appliances to be delivered into. The garage is usually a good location.
  • Pack up the kitchen (or bathroom) well before the remodel. While it’s a great time to "spring clean" your shelves, don’t forget to label the storage boxes well. This will make the unpacking process a lot easier and a lot more fun! Items that are fragile should be marked accordingly and stored in an area away from the construction.
  • Plan a location outside of the area where the remodeling is being done to act as your temporary kitchen.
Set up a temporary kitchen
  • You may be able to temporarily move everything you need…except the kitchen sink! Consider where your "water source" will be in relation to your temporary kitchen.
  • Find a suitable place for your old refrigerator and your other appliances
  • Be sure the power source can handle the appliances
  • Microwave (and a freezer stocked with microwavable meals!).
  • Coffee Maker (don’t forget to put the filters and coffee close at hand too!)
  • Utility utensils, such as: can opener, bottle/wine opener, sharp knives, and microwavable dishes
  • Toaster
  • Keep the basics handy: butter, salt & pepper, favorite spices Dining area/table Tell the kids you’re picnicking…use paper plates & napkins as well as disposable silverware.
  • Cleaning supplies and dishtowels If it’s a bathroom remodel. Pretend you’re packing to go on a trip. Remember the hairdryer and curling iron!
Don’t forget about your pets!
  • If there isn’t an area in your home to keep them safely away from construction, especially during certain phases - it maybe a perfect time to treat your pet to a vacation at the kennel or a play date at a friend’s home. Decide in advance where you’d like the installers to store their tools.

Dust

  • There’s just no way to avoid it! If there is a fish tank or electrical equipment in close proximity to the work, be sure to keep everything well covered!
