Guide to Choosing a Kitchen Designer

Myrtle Beach Cabinets is often asked, “how do we find a good designer?” After many conversations, we found ourselves sharing the same core tips over and over.  Whenever you are considering hiring a team to work on your home, your landscape or even your business, keep these tips in mind.

Opinion and Inside Perspective:

For any homeowner, the most difficult step of a remodel is finding a professional that is trustworthy and skilled. Especially, if it’s your first time hiring outside help. It’s hard to know what to look for. With years of experience, our team has an inside perspective that most homeowners don’t. That means, we understand how to spot someone worth hiring (and someone who isn’t).

To help people in their search, our team put together our best suggestions for finding a quality service provider. Here are our best tips:

Things To Look For
  1. Be wary of low prices. It is very true that you get what you pay for. The first thing homeowners look for is pricing. Most will hire the professional with lowest-priced services without much further research. But, low prices are sometimes a reflection of the designer not understanding everything involved in producing a successful project. That last thing you want is an easily avoided error that puts your project out of budget and past its deadline. Low prices aren’t bad, just make sure it isn’t your only deciding factor.
  2. How long they have been in business? New contractors are going to be learning on your dime and in your home. Look for continued education, specialized certifications and length of work history as indicators of the quality of your contractor. Additionally, ask for personal recommendations from friends who have used professionals in the past. Myrtle Beach cabinets has served the Myrtle Beach community for years and frequently receives new clients through positive word of mouth recommendations.

Want another tip you might not have thought of? Don’t hire a contractor who has had multiple insurance carriers. That usually means that he or she is probably not employable.

Finding The Right Fit 

Now that you know what to look for, there are a few ways to narrow your pool of remodelers even further.

Online identity. Every contractor worth hiring should have some sort of online presence. Try to find profiles on third party websites, Facebook or with the Better Business Bureau. Ideally, these sites have verified testimonials and original photos of the contractor’s completed projects. Apart from our website, we have an extensive profile on and Facebook. Take a look!

Schedule a meeting or a phone call. The best way to gauge if you can work well with someone is by talking to them. During the meeting, take note of certain particulars. Is it an organized process? Do they have a professional demeanor? Do they have appropritate suggestions on how best to use your space? These are all indicators of the way they will work if hired.
