How to Begin?

We understand that the kitchen is often a place to gather; the focal point of your home. It can quickly become a daunting task of even knowing where to start. Here are some helpful tips to ease the concerns and provide a tangible way forward to achieve the kitchen of your dreams.


The easiest way to begin is to find and collect pictures of kitchens that appeal to your needs and desires. This could be on Pinterest, design magazines, or anywhere else you may find your inspiration. Often times, pieces of different pictures are combined to come up with a final product.

Some of the things to consider when planning your kitchen project:

  • Colour of cabinet doors - are you matching existing cabinets, trim, etc.? Are you looking for complementary colours (one for upper cabinets and one for lower cabinets)?

  • Is there a style that appeals to you? Are you interested in a modern or a traditional look?

  • Are you changing your appliances? (This is a great time to do it and, if so, you should choose the new appliances before the cabinets are designed)

  • Are you changing the lighting? Are you interested in adding under-cabinet lighting?

  • Is there a colour / style of hardware that appeals to you?

The process:

After the initial consultation, a preliminary design will be provided to establish a starting point. From here, specific adjustments can be made until a final design has been approved. Once the design has been finalized, our team at Living Oaks will begin the fabrication process.

When the pieces are ready to be installed, an installation date will be chosen. The on-site installation typically takes between 2-5 days depending on the scope of work.

If you are considering replacing your kitchen, we would be happy to come look at your space, discuss design options and give you an estimate - all free of charge. Contact us today.
