Narrowing down your supplier
10 potential kitchen suppliers sounds like a lot, but get 10 anyway. You’ll discover that the differences among them are significant. You need to know what they are. Some emphasize design and worry less about installation. They are happy for you to get your own installer. Some won’t give you a design unless you use their installer. Some rely on a modular approach while others build custom cabinetry only. If you talked to a general contractor, he will clue you in on all the other things that need to get done during a kitchen renovation.
And the range of pricing!! Holy cow. There will be as much as 50 percent from the highest price to the lowest. As you go, your 10 will very quickly whittle down to three or four at most. The next step will be to get serious about them.
