Kitchen Designer vs Kitchen Showroom
How are you different from a kitchen showroom?
The main difference between EBO Design+Build and a kitchen showroom is when I design a kitchen I look at the whole house and ensure your new space complements the rest of your existing home or goes with the future renovation plans you may have.
Most kitchen showrooms are interested in just your kitchen and will design purely based on what you tell them you want, but in our experience clients don't always know what exactly they want.
Case in point: we recently completed a kitchen where the clients were adamant on a specific layout. They had gone to a kitchen showroom but the designer there wasn't interested in brainstorming ideas, only in telling them how much storage space they'd lose with their new layout plan. Now in this person's defense these clients were very obviously worried about storage as they mentioned it multiple times with me, so that's what this person focused on.
Now when I first looked at the kitchen I could see a lot of wasted space and that it was poorly laid out. After the initial design consultation, I realized there was a better layout than what they were thinking of that would actually improve the flow of their whole home.
They loved the new layout idea and ultimately decided to go that way. I was told multiple times by these clients how they would have never thought of laying out their kitchen this way, and now that their kitchen is done they are absolutely in love with it.
So our kitchen showrooms bad? Definitely not, they have their market and clientele, but my clients are looking for a kitchen that's cohesive with the whole home and that's why they hire me.
