Using our Design+Build process, our in-house designer can help you decide on every aspect of your new kitchen – from layout to finishes. Dluxe Construction is prepared to go the extra mile and do our best to ensure your happiness and confidence with your new kitchen.



You want a kitchen that works well for you and your family. The reasons are individual, but may include room for two cooks, a computer station, or a walk-in pantry. Our kitchen designers can work with you to design a kitchen that addresses your needs and complements your lifestyle.


A newly designed kitchen can increase your interaction with others. When you open up the kitchen to other rooms, like family rooms, you won’t feel isolated when preparing meals. You can be in your kitchen and still be part of the action. A new island can be a comfortable place for late-night chats with teens.


Unfortunately, many household accidents occur in the kitchen. You can upgrade the safety of this much-used room to reduce the risks of accidents and make it as safe as possible. For example, your kitchen designer can discuss layouts with you that will lessen the risk of bumping into others with hot food or water. Countertop heights can be modified to reduce back strain. Green materials can be utilized to improve indoor air quality.


According to realtors, the kitchen is one of the most important rooms in the house to potential buyers. A beautiful kitchen can often mean the difference between a quick sale and a home that lingers on the market. Remodeling Magazine’s “2007 Cost vs. Value Report” shows that a kitchen remodel can return 86% of it’s cost upon resale. Meanwhile, you get to live in and enjoy a beautiful kitchen while you are there for only 14% of the cost!


Many people love entertaining, but find that everyone always ends up in their too small kitchen. Sometimes the kitchen is too small and an addition will make a world of difference. Other times the kitchen is just poorly laid out and you can remodel within the existing footprint to achieve your goals. You’ll be excited to entertain and show off your beautiful new kitchen!


A well-designed kitchen remodel can greatly increase your storage space and ability to keep organized. More importantly, our kitchen designers can incorporate the right mix of storage solutions that are uniquely important to you and your family.

The National Kitchen & Bath Association (NKBA) offers the following tips to help homeowners evaluate the current condition of their kitchen and decide if the time is right for a remodel.

Adequate Space: Are you satisfied with the amount of counter space, cabinet space and floor space in your kitchen? The position of your refrigerator or shape of your counter may be taking away useful workspace. According to the NKBA  Kitchen and Bath Planning Guidelines, when replacing a countertop or changing the shape of your kitchen, keep in mind that a total of 158″ of countertop frontage, 24″ deep with at least 15″ of clearance above, is needed to accommodate all uses, including landing area, preparation/work area and storage.

Traffic Flow: If there’s more than one cook in your household, you may want to consider making more room around the main workspace. If you enjoy entertaining, you may want an open plan kitchen that allows for more social interaction between the kitchen and other rooms. According to the NKBA  Kitchen Planning Guidelines, the width of a walkway should be at least 36″ and the width of a work aisle should be at least 42″ for one cook and at least 48″ for multiple cooks.

Children: Depending on whether or not you have children, and their ages, your kitchen may need to be remodeled. Dated appliances and the design of your kitchen can be hazardous for young kids. If you are in the process of extending your family, you may want more room for cooking larger meals and lower cabinets for easier access to children’s food. Based on the NKBA  Kitchen Planning Guidelines, microwave ovens should be installed 3″ below the principal user’s shoulder but no more than 54″ above the floor to avoid accidents. The NKBA  also suggests avoiding sharp corners on countertops with kids around.
 Efficiency: If your appliances are dated, they may be costing you more money than you expect. New technological advances with dishwashers, disposals and refrigerators could save you a considerable amount of money and may be well worth the investment. For example, purchasing a dishwasher with low-energy consumption, delay timer and economy cycle or half-load button will result in saving water and money.
Universal Design: Is your kitchen accessible to individuals with disabilities? Will you be able to use your kitchen safely as you get older? Considering these issues is vital in a kitchen remodel. Employing Universal Design techniques in the remodel will help assure that the space is as accessible to or usable by all people, regardless of age, size or physical ability without the need for adaptation or specialized design later on.

Location: Thinking about adding a deck to the side or back of your house? Incorporating a door into the layout of your kitchen would be a great convenience for outdoor entertaining. You also may want to rearrange the position of windows to allow more or less sunlight or to watch your children play in the yard. When rearranging the layout of your kitchen, according to the NKBA  guidelines, the clear opening of a doorway should be at least 32″ wide, which would require a minimum of 2’10” door. Keep in mind that a cooking surface should never be located under an operable windows.
Before you remodel your kitchen, make a checklist of major and minor problems and keep notes of the features you dislike and like the most. When it comes time to sit down with a qualified kitchen and bath designer, they’ll know exactly how to suit your needs, taste and style.
