Our Process

Design & Budget – 4-8 weeks

Design & Budget – 4-8 weeks

We invite you to visit our quaint Emmaus studio for a complimentary consultation with one of our designers. If Zoom works better for you, we are happy to accommodate. First, we listen to you as you describe your project goals, ideas and concerns. Feel free to tap into our extensive knowledge and vast experience with any questions you may have. This consultation also serves as your opportunity to get to know Jarrett Design and all we have to offer. If you decide to hire us, a design fee would be collected and the fun would begin!

To get started, we guide you through an in-depth survey, take careful measurements and photograph the existing spaces. With these in hand, we brainstorm solutions to your challenges and begin the creative process of designing. We design in several CAD-based programs to create floor plans, elevations, and 3D renderings in order to help you visualize the concepts we present to you.

Jarrett Design is a dealer of semi-custom and custom cabinetry. Our manufacturers and craftspeople allow us to specify endless styles, wood species, finishes, organizational accessories and tailored modifications. Our studio is chock full of samples and displays for you to peruse while you make your selections. Our design team is by your side to educate you and to guide you. Along with cabinetry, we offer a large selection of hardware, counter tops, tile, and other products for your project. After a final plan with all functional and aesthetic details is agreed upon, quotes for materials are provided.

When it comes to appliances, plumbing fixtures, lighting, flooring, and all other parts and pieces for your project, we hold professional relationships with reputable vendors. This allows us to help you gather quotes for materials and services at the best value. A significant portion of the budget goes to the construction aspect of the project.  We work closely with contractors to get you the detailed quotes you need, whether the contractor is one you bring in or one we recommend.

 Review & Coordinate – 8-12 weeks

Review & Coordinate – 8-12 weeks

Your dream design is complete! Budgeting has been done and a lead contractor has been designated. This phase requires robust review and conscientious coordination to ensure the smoothest possible process for all.  The time has come to order cabinetry, hardware and other materials. We require a 50% deposit to order your cabinetry. We carefully check measure to ensure that our plans are accurate. Final construction drawings are provided to you and the lead contractor. Approximately three weeks after ordering cabinetry, we communicate its delivery date to you and the lead contractor. We assist you as you make final decisions related to every detail.  We coordinate ordering other materials and work with vendors to ensure proper scheduling so that everything is ideally on site prior to demolition. We prepare detailed project instructions to be used as a handy reference manual. Demo begins and your space is prepared for cabinetry, appliances, lighting and plumbing fixtures. Our goal is to minimize overall construction time so that you may enjoy your new space as quickly as possible. The duration of this phase is determined by the lead time for your cabinetry. Lead time for semi-custom cabinetry is typically 6-8 weeks. Lead time for custom cabinetry is typically 8-12 weeks.

Communicate & Install – 4-6 weeks

Communicate & Install – 4-6 weeks

This is the phase where your dream finally comes to fruition!  Clear communication is necessary to ensure your wishes will be executed properly. Our installation packet spells out all details with comprehensive plans, installation instructions, appliance specifications and other critical information. On cabinetry delivery day, we are on site to ensure all parts arrive as expected. The balance due on cabinetry is collected at the time of delivery. Throughout installation, we make ourselves available to you and the contractors via phone and site visits. We are not satisfied until the final punch list items are checked off and you are thrilled with the results. With your permission, we love to wrap up our journey together by photographing your new, fabulous space.
