Home Remodeling During COVID-19: Design Now, Remodel Later

The Kitchen Master | May 11, 2020

If you have been pondering a kitchen remodel, you may wonder if it’s possible to get your project started in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. Our enthusiastic response is YES—you can begin the design process now! You may not be able to see product samples in person quite yet, but it’s still a good idea to start designing. That way, you’ll be ready to launch your remodel immediately once OSHA and the CDC say it’s safe for construction workers to be in your home again.

Here at The Kitchen Master, we have adapted our MASTER PLAN™ to begin your kitchen or bathroom remodeling project remotely. Here’s how it works.

First, We Talk

This initial step remains the same as always. We speak with you over the phone to discuss your needs and goals, design preferences, and vision for what the project will accomplish. If your desires align with our services, we can move on to the next step.

Then, We Meet Remotely

Under normal circumstances, we meet with clients in person, either at our showroom or in their home. However, with social distancing and stay-at-home protocols in place, we have temporarily shifted our remodeling consultations to a virtual setting.

During this free one- or two-hour meeting, we learn more about you and your home. Even if you aren’t sure what you want or where to begin, we can help you get there by asking the right questions. We’ll educate you on ways to create a living space that fits your family’s needs.

Our remote design consultations can take place over the phone or via video chat. Video tends to be the best way to communicate since we can speak face-to-face. It also gives us a chance to take a virtual tour of your kitchen, bathroom, or other rooms you wish to remodel. Our certified designers will study the space, share ideas to accomplish your vision, and begin discussing possible materials and finishes.

Once we have a broad idea of the design you want, we discuss the project budget and timeline, keeping in mind the delayed start due to the pandemic. This will give you all the information you need to determine if The Kitchen Master is the right bath and kitchen remodeling company for you.

Next, We Design

COVID-19 might keep us apart for now, but it can’t put a damper on the design process! With all your needs and desires in front of us, we’ll put our innovative and unique ideas to good use, creating detailed drawings to help you visualize how your new kitchen or bathroom will look. We also assemble material choices and design alternatives with cost estimates for each one. This helps you make the best selection based on your style preferences and budgetary needs.

We’ll email you all this information, along with a work timeline and payment schedule, so you have everything you need to envision when and how the project will take place. Estimated start dates may be postponed until we have a better understanding of when in-home construction projects can safely resume.
