3 Common Misconceptions About Hiring Professional Kitchen Designers

In the last few years, DIY’ing has become huge. Mainly because people are trying to save money and partly because they haven’t been getting great results from so-called professionals.

It is true that there are a lot of amateurs posing as professional contractors in every industry but with a little bit of research you can do away with them and find the experienced and reliable contractors that will give you the results you want. Here are some myths we’re happy to bust so you can be satisfied with your kitchen renovation at last.

1. They Are Expensive
Hiring professional kitchen designers isn’t as expensive as you might think! In fact, in the long run, you’ll find it costs the same, if not cheaper than a DIY project. This is because kitchen contractors get materials at a discounted price due to agreements with suppliers. Another factor to consider is that they already have all the tools needed to complete the project while you have to buy or hire it. If you value your time, you can take it a step further. A contractor will take a week or two to finish a project that will take you months since you must work in your free time. Time is money!

2. You Don’t Need Skills to Do a Kitchen Renovation, Just Common Sense
Some people are under the impression that kitchen renovations are easy. If you don’t have an inclination for working with your hands, you will get stuck. Kitchen designs and renovations require skills and experience to get it right first time around.

3. Kitchen Contractors Never Deliver on Their Promises

If you’ve had bad luck with contractors previously, we understand why you would be hesitant to hire contractors again. But you don’t have to be. Just make sure to research them well before you sign on the dotted line. You can even go as far as contacting some of their previous clients for references.

There’s a world of difference between a custom fitted kitchen & an average modular kitchen!

There is an obvious and very fundamental difference between a custom kitchen and a modular kitchen – modular kitchen cabinetry is literally ‘what you see is what you get’, while custom designed, fitted kitchen cabinets and built-in cupboards can be anything you want them to be!

With a modular kitchen, you will more than likely end up with appliances that stick out where they shouldn’t, along with drawers and kitchen cabinet depths that are not the answer to your kitchen dreams.  Mass produced modular kitchens come in standard widths and heights, and there is no room at all for any improvement or adjustment at all.  Choice of colour and material is limited to what is manufactured on a large scale, allowing for no flexibility in dimensions and finishes.

The difference in custom kitchens is that you get to select everything from height to depth, width and countertop for every fitted kitchen cabinet and built-in cabinet going into your home, without doors or drawers getting caught or stuck on each other when opened and closed – the budget may have to stretch a little more, but what you get in terms of flow, style and functionality more than makes up for going a few steps further on the design of your custom kitchen!

When the team of innovative, experienced designers at ProReno work to take your dream kitchen from concept to installation, all the components will be designed and manufactured to suit your personal specifications, and to accommodate all of your appliances perfectly, without any ‘filling’.

ProReno manufactures fitted kitchen cabinets and built-in cupboards that do not limit you at all where it comes to height, depth or width; it is all designed to make the most of the available space and to make it easy to move around in, fully functional and a total extension of your personal taste in decor.

With the unrivalled range of products available from ProReno, which far outweighs any competitor, you can turn your kitchen into the perfect hub of your home, and, working with the imaginative, creative team of designers at ProReno, finding the right interaction between all the components, brilliant combinations of material, colour, architecture and lighting will be an exciting experience as you watch your dream begin to take shape.

Having the hands-on team from ProReno on your side as they manage your project, design, manufacture and fit high quality kitchen cabinets and built-in cupboards is an assurance that, from design to installation, you will have the very best in the industry to guide and advise you through the process of creating your dream kitchen.
