The Process

Consultation
What works for you in your current kitchen? what does not work? These are the questions TKS aims to find out on our first consultation. From here we can begin to conceptualize a kitchen that works for you and adds value to your life and home.

Selection/Design
With a concept in mind we can place pen into paper and begin to design the layout and make selections. We might go through multiple design and selection changes, we want to make sure you get the kitchen of your dreams and nothing less.

Construction
We begin by scheduling around your daily life. We work for you and try to make the construction process as pleasant as possible for you. We develop a schedule and stick to it, leaving the job site clean everyday.

Warranty
Our dedication does not stop at the completion of the work. We follow up and keep up with any warranty and maintenance that may arise after completion. We are only a call away.

The Components

Cabinets
There is a wide variety of cabinets out there, from pre-finished cabinets to custom built on site cabinets. The finishes and configurations are endless and the cost can vary greatly. TKS has established relationships with multiple vendors, fabricators and quality carpenters in town to give you the best options for whatever your budget is.

Hard Finishes
The tile and counter tops are an important component of your kitchen. You want to make sure your selection is not only beautiful but also that it will stand up to the wear and tear of daily use. TKS will guide in making sound informed decisions about the various tile and counter top materials.

Lights/Plumbing
The electrical and plumbing systems are not only about the beautiful shiny fixtures you get to enjoy but about all the prior work in running appropriate size pipes and dedicated electrical wiring for appliances. TKS can stand behind our work because we only used reputable vendors and professional tradesmen.

Appliances
Whether you are planning to re-use your appliances or purchase new ones through our list of recommended vendors we will make sure all the appropriate connections are at the right place for a smooth installation.

Hardware
The finishing touch for the kitchen is the hardware and there are many selections out there with various lead times. We help you stay on track of deadline for selections as we know the time it can take to be delivered. We involve you in every decision, from the cabinet pull placement to the orientation of the knobs.
