In this article, we will explore five key points that highlight the benefits of choosing a design + build firm for your Kansas City kitchen remodel. Creating a dream kitchen can be an exciting yet overwhelming journey. Take a look...
Tip #1 - We Guide You From the Beginning
Before construction begins, and in fact---before we even step into your home, the design process starts. Clients sign up for a complimentary video session to review project photos, talk about their vision and learn how a renovation works. It's a great first step to understanding what goes into a kitchen remodel, and it's very convenient to schedule.
The best part, it's an opportunity to ask questions about YOUR kitchen. Can we move appliances? How can we rebuild the island? What opportunities are there in the layout to increase storage? And it's FREE.
After the session, clients receive a free design concept board, and budget plan. This is very helpful as a first step towards remodeling success. The next step is to meet our team in person , in your home, for a more firm estimate.
Tip #2 - Streamlined Process
When you choose The Remodel Studio for your kitchen remodel, you gain the advantage of a streamlined process that ensures a seamless transition from your initial design discussions to the actual construction.
We take the lead in guiding you through each step, from concept to reality. We understand the importance of starting with key design elements such as trim color and choosing countertops, as they set the foundation for the overall aesthetic. Our expertise allows us to strategically plan the selection of lighting and hardware, recognizing that these choices enhance the final touches of your dream kitchen.
One of our areas of expertise lies in picking the perfect cabinet paint color, a task we have successfully accomplished numerous times for our clients. Through our well-honed process, which has been refined with many homeowners, we bring your vision to life, transforming your dream kitchen into a tangible reality.

Tip #3 - Mood boards Are Our Friends
At The Remodel Studio, we understand the power of visualizing a kitchen space before construction starts. That's why we consider mood boards to be our trusty companions from the very start of the design process. When working with clients, we create these mood boards that serve as a visual look of the overall aesthetic or style we're aiming for. These inspiration boards feature carefully curated items and elements that capture the essence of the envisioned space.
For example, in an Overland Park remodel, The Remodel Studio utilized a dark paint color as the kitchen island accent, beautifully contrasting with white kitchen cabinets and complemented by elegant brass hardware.
By presenting these elements on a mood board, our clients can easily grasp the design concept, visualize how different elements will come together, and make informed decisions. The mood board helped clients choose the final accent color when presented. It's an invaluable tool that allows our team to effectively show our clients what design ideas we are thinking of, making sure that their kitchen vision becomes a reality that surpasses their expectations.
Tip #4 - Let's talk drawing and renders

It's natural for our clients to have difficulty envisioning the final kitchen remodel look. That's where renders and drawings come to the rescue, going beyond the capabilities of an inspiration board. These powerful tools provide a more realistic viewpoint of what the finished space will actually look like, almost down to the smallest detail.
In our ongoing Leawood Kansas remodel, for instance, we faced the task of rebuilding the kitchen island. To help our client make an informed decision, our design team presented them with three different layout options for the island. By visually showcasing these options through renders and drawings, we were able to significantly reduce the time it took to make a final decision.
This level of clarity and visual representation empowers our clients to have a clearer understanding of the possibilities and enables them to confidently choose the best option for their dream kitchen. Goodbye decision overwhelm.
A remodel involves hundreds of design decisions
The amount of design decision can be in the hundreds on large scale projects. Even small projects cause clients to move swiftly into the overwhelm category. A mistake can be costly.
