I have noticed over the last seven years at AKB that in the design business, initially contacting an architect or a builder regarding a renovation is just as typical as reaching out to a trusted designer. It has been rewarding to see that many of AKB’s repeat customers are “greenlight” clients. They want and TRUST us to do it all. (Spoiler Alert: AKB’s owner is a board certified architect.)
Design, Demolition, Installation. AKB can offer an all-inclusive approach involving fine cabinetry, countertops, flooring, fixtures, sinks, hardware, lighting, paint & more. We enjoy an excellent working relationship with many of the area’s building professionals and suppliers and can professionally and personally refer a MENU to our clients to easily choose from… keeping them in the driver’s seat, out of the stress zone and our eye on the quality of the finished product.
Everyone needs to feel comfortable during the time consuming and inconvenient disruption of a home renovation. The hassle of the myriad of decisions becomes overwhelming to even the most prepared home renovators. STOP STRESSING! Engaging the services of a professional kitchen and bath designer does NOT mean additional costs to the homeowner, it just means professional results.
Beyond the outside aesthetics, cabinets are graded on three things: the box, the shelves and the drawers. Often we hear from clients after seeing our professional renderings, “I can probably get something cheaper from XX”. Yes. You can. But the cautionary tale is the “Unused Newly Installed Version” vs. “Your Family’s Daily Abuse”!
Cabinet prices are wide ranging and directly correlate to materials and construction methods. Choose particleboard, melamine and stapled drawers and that is exactly the “performance” you should expect after a couple months of your family’s use.
It’s always worth coming in and chatting with a designer at AKB… where Quality Matters.
The holiday party plan involved a bar in the back hallway, platters of cheeses and fruits, tartlets and a presentation of roasted vegetables and dip stationed around the great room. Shouldn’t have bothered… after an hour of trying to shoo guests out of the kitchen, we gave up and moved everything to where they wanted to be, the kitchen! A beautiful custom kitchen with an island (or double island!) is the perfect place for family and friends to enjoy.
Keep the grass “blue” in Central Kentucky and choose AKB for your new kitchen or bathroom. We are a small locally owned business providing design services and custom cabinetry options. Our most popular cabinetry supplier is an hour outside of Lexington, KY!
