Strategies for HD/Lowe's Design Services?
Starting to think through a kitchen redo to include new cabinets - appreciate input on how to tackle the design process. Based on what I've read here, Consumer Reports, and whether I can get the layout I think I want from the various cabs each manufacturer offers, I've narrowed my field to Thomasville/Kemper or Schuler. I guess my next step is to take my draft layout to HD/Lowe's (in Baltimore MD area) to find out if it needs tweeking and what the eye-popping price will be? How much time is involved in using HD/Lowe's design services? What do you actually get from them as an end-product? How much pressure do you tend to get to include lots of bells and whistles? Is there a better approach? My thinking was that if I've already got my idea of a layout on paper, I may not get overwhelmed (at least not yet anyway).
