2. Initial consult.
3. Designer creates layout.
4. Revisions and approval.
Cabinet design consults are quick. Once you set up an appointment with a designer, the first consultation can be a phone call of about 30 to 45 minutes. With the designer, you’ll define the project budget and timeframe, as well as describe your desired cabinet style and functionality.
Kitchen, bathroom renovations offer a good return on investment. The return on investment for even minor kitchen renovations is 85.7 percent, according to Remodeling magazine. In addition, remodeling your kitchen may shorten the length of time it takes to sell your home.
Cabinets are custom-designed to your lifestyle. With access to multifunctional cabinetry such as Dura Supreme’s Crestwood Cabinetry, the Spahn & Rose design team will develop a layout tailored to how you use your kitchen or bathroom.
Your style is reflected in cabinets. As you create your cabinets with a designer, you can view samples of materials and styles from a Spahn & Rose cabinet showroom.
Design is revised until you’re satisfied. Typically, kitchen and bathroom cabinet projects include one to three revisions after the initial design. Your designer will seek your input and then make modifications. Once you approve the final version, the cabinets can be ordered.
You have many sustainable cabinet choices. Dura Supreme offers plenty of sustainable options. It’s headquartered in scenic central Minnesota, so protecting natural resources is core to Dura Supreme’s mission. The majority of its hardwood is sourced from domestic forests, with sustainable practices followed throughout the manufacturing process.
Lots of specific-function cabinetry makes your life easier. Once our designers determine how you use cabinetry in your home, they have access to several specialized designs. For example, Dura Supreme’s Boot Bench and Locker provides an elegant yet functional design to organize and outfit a mudroom or entry hall. Boot Benches are available with hinged tops or spacious drawers; many homeowners choose a design with one drawer and one locker for each family member so that everything is organized by individual and easily accessible.
