Q: How long will it take to complete my remodel?
A: Typical Kitchen remodels that are occurring within the existing walls, and without major structural work on the existing, can be completed in 10-12 weeks start to finish. Making additions or removing exiting bearing walls will cause the overall duration to increase. These timelines are estimates and your contractor will need to give you actual time estimates for your specific job.
Q: How much will my kitchen cost?
A: Short answer? How long is a rope? The total cost of the project involves several factors. We have broken it down into four general categories:
Appliances and plumbing fixtures
Finishes: counter tops, backsplash, flooring etc.
Labor and supervision
In 2021 we saw complete our complete kitchen projects coming in between 75-325k with the average falling in the 175k range.
Q: Do you offer “Design Only” services?
A: It is our preference to do design work for people that are open to purchasing cabinetry though us because we feel that our products offer many advantages.
Q: How do I select a general contractor?
A: Studio Stratton has a short list of preferred general contractors that we are happy to share with our clients. We help you make that selection based on the size of the job, personalities, and availability. We are also happy to work with general contractors with whom our clients have a prior relationship.
Q: Does Studio Stratton take care of the installation of cabinetry and other finish products?
A: Studio Stratton is not a general contractor and as such we offer product sales only and do not contract for labor. We do have a curated group of cabinet installers and other trade professionals that our clients can work with directly or through a general contractor to provide quality installation.
Q: What makes a kitchen more or less expensive?
A: Size of the room, and the quality of the components used to complete the remodel. Cabinetry and appliances are the two largest line items in most kitchen remodels and because of that, these are the areas that have the largest impact on the total budget. We affirm the old adage “you get what you pay for”. Cabinets and appliances get opened and closed multiple times each day, and quality in these areas is something you will notice and appreciate over time.
Q: What is the most important thing when designing a kitchen?
A: You are! The most important element in kitchen design is the occupants. How do you live day to day? How do you normally entertain? What is your style, or what is the style of the home? What makes you happy? These are the things that matter most to us.
