with built in peace of mind
The kitchen is probably the room in your home that has the highest traffic throughout each and every day. From breakfast before school and work to home-cooked dinners for the whole family, the kitchen handles it all.
Remodeling your kitchen can also be one of the biggest remodel projects in your home because it requires so many decisions to be made about every detail.
It begins with understanding your needs. Are there passionate cooks among you? Do you long for new appliances to make life easier? Are we preparing meals for a large family every day, or eating simply most days, and then welcoming a house full of guests on the holidays?
There are so many choices to make – a double sink for lots of dishes vs. one of the stylish farmhouse sinks? How many ovens and burners do you need? How much space should you dedicate to pantry and storage, and how much should be reserved for foot traffic, kids, neighbors, dogs and parties?
That's why you want an experienced team beside you when making these decisions.

Envision your perfect kitchen. What do you see? When we look at your kitchen and consider your job we're weighing many factors, including...
Once we have have worked with you to explore these important factors, and others, then the design process has truly begun.
Everything from your cabinets to your flooring needs to be selected for a full kitchen remodel. That means that you need to keep each aspect in mind when designing your kitchen, and still somehow stay within your budget. This is where we can be especially helpful. RW Anderson provides expert leadership when helping you pick out each and every element of your new kitchen. We can show you a wide array of colors, materials, and prices to perfectly tailor your kitchen to what you need and want.
Your kitchen floor needs to withstand foot traffic and potential spills, drops, and cooking accidents, so we consider durability and maintenance as well as aesthetics when choosing flooring. That said, floors also play an integral part in tying the room together visually, so it is important to choose something aesthetically pleasing.
Good options may be:
Cabinets establish a visual theme and help define the style for your entire kitchen. The design, construction and installation of cabinetry can also be some of the most time-consuming aspects of a kitchen remodeling project.
It's not always necessary to invest in luxury cabinets to get high-quality features and quality craftsmanship. Some moderately priced cabinets offer organizational solutions like drawers instead of doors and built-in features such as spice racks and organizers.
Cabinet design also helps make use of the dead space that can occur in the way back of cabinets. Great design can help you put it to use when you are in the process of creating custom cabinetry. A pie-corner base cabinet pulls out and maximizes the space or an old-fashioned Lazy Susan spins and easily brings pantry items to the front.
Along with the cabinets, countertops set a visual tone and help define the kitchen's style. We work with clients to choose materials that not only reflect their style, but are in harmony with how they'll use their kitchens.
Granite is often on the wish-list for homebuyers and remodelers alike. In addition, new engineered stone products are replacing granite in high-end design. They not only offer a luxurious-looking, grainte-like surface but can be stain-resistant and very durable. Other countertop materials include:
The design of the kitchen and your desire for specific appliances are shaped in tandem. Many spaces can accommodate an oversized refrigerator or industrial cooktop if the design is created around these goals from the very beginning. The appliances to keep in mind are:
