The Current Condition of Your Kitchen
When you meet with the team from DESIGNFirst, you learn first-hand what type of updates are right for your space. For example, if your home has a kitchen that is more than 15 years old; overall, it may be wise to consider a tear out. If you have damaged cabinets that cannot be easily repaired or there is damage to the electrical or plumbing, it may be impossible for you to do a small update.
