Kitchen designers working out of a showroom can be very advantageous at the start of a project. Being able to show you a large variety of cabinets, countertops etc. will give you a clear vision of what you want your kitchen to look like. Yes, you can go online, but let’s face it pictures can be misleading with different screens showing different shades of a color for instance, (we’ve all ordered a product in purple, just to have it delivered in lavender). Also, actual samples give you the opportunity to feel the quality and finish of the product. Their job is to follow trends and since they work with kitchen design day in and day out their input is invaluable. Also, a good kitchen design showroom will have numerous kitchen layouts and styles to take out the guesswork of what the different products will look like coming together. When researching, make sure the kitchen design showroom you visit carries several different cabinetry lines, has various countertops and appliances on display and a seasoned design staff.
