where to start..kitchen designer? Architect?
Hello-My wife and I are starting to explore options for a complete kitchen renovation. We will have to do quite a bit of re-configuring based on our desire to open the kitchen up. May also require the relocation of our basement access staircase, as well as raising the ceiling height. bottom line it's not as simple as just keeping our current configuration and replacing cabinets, appliances and counters. my question is how do we start? should we start with an architect or are there specific kitchen designers that know enough about construction to advise on the structural changes? Can a contractor do it all? any advice is greatly appreciated. Thanks
