Working with a Designer

What can you expect when you work with a professional kitchen designer? Frankly, a lot. These planning and product specialists add value to every step of your remodeling project.

Advice and Ideas

Every day, kitchen designers guide people through this process. They know their way around a kitchen, so they can point out ways to balance your budget with your wish list, improve overall functionality, avoid common (and costly) mistakes. All they need is the chance to get to know you and your needs.

Planning and Design Services

You’ll never regret having professional assistance to create your kitchen design plan. Your designer can map out your entire space down to the last detail – maximizing storage, optimizing work zones and adding finishing touches to make the style statement you’re seeking.

Product Selection

Your kitchen designer knows KraftMaid® cabinetry inside and out. So they’re the perfect resource to identify the door styles, finish options and storage innovations that will combine to become your dream kitchen.

Bringing Your Plan to Life

Don’t just imagine what your new space will look like. Your designer can show you a 3-D rendering of your plan – complete with your chosen door style and finish option. (Until your designer has your plan ready for rendering, try our Kitchen Visualizer to see different combinations of door styles, finish options and hardware in a virtual kitchen.)


Working with a pro takes guesswork out of your project. From drafting plans to finalizing your order and following up with your installers, your designer will serve as a point person from start to finish.
