Design Process

The first step is to meet with a member of our design team at our showroom so we can learn about your project and you can learn about us. During this complimentary meeting we'll discuss the scope of the project and your cabinet design preferences. Please bring any photos you have gathered, to enhance the description of the vision for your space. Magazines, Houzz and Pinterest are great resources to draw from.

The next step is for us to prepare a preliminary budget for your project. Then we can schedule an appointment to visit your home, measure your space and take notes and photographs to document the existing conditions.

From there, we will create a series of working drawings to help you conceptualize your new space. The drawings are comprised of plans and elevations with the style, size, finish and location of cabinetry. We will also include cabinet hardware and appliance selections if you have specified these already. Please note that we do not provide flooring, appliances, plumbing fixtures or countertops (cabinetry only) however, we will list them on your drawings to get the complete scope of your project. We are committed to helping you achieve a design that you love, that meets your criteria and budget!

Once the design review is complete we ask that you sign all drawings and the proposal in order to put your cabinets into production. The proposal is valid 30 days from the proposal date, payment terms are based on a case by case basis and are listed on your proposal. From the time of sign off, it generally takes 4-8 weeks to build and install your cabinets. Once the cabinet order has been placed we will work with your builder or contractor to have cabinets installed by members or our experienced installation team. Now you are ready to enjoy your dream.

Additional Information
It's never too early to start designing your cabinets however; your house must be at the "dried-in" stage (roof work/mechanical stage complete) for us to schedule your job to the proper phase.

AWW will not do any tear out of existing materials; any plumbing or electrical work or anything not pertaining to cabinetry. Your jobsite must be ready for cabinets when we arrive at installation.

Our cabinetry is designed for inside use and is not intended for outdoor applications. As with all wood products, avoid excessive moisture.
