Our Remodeling Process
Design & Plan
The completion of a successful kitchen remodel project is achieved through careful planning and attention to details
Our team of professional designers has extensive experience in creating your dream space and then managing complex processes. Typically, this begins with a meeting in our showroom. While the showroom is open for you to browse, we also recommend calling to schedule an appointment. This way we can walk you through the showroom and answer your questions.
After the preliminary meeting in our showroom, a site evaluation meeting is scheduled.
At this time, measurements are taken and information is gathered, which is needed for the initial kitchen design phase. With this information, the designer will develop a plan, view drawings, and then share their vision for your space. These early-stage plans will both lead to discussions and decisions, and will also help generate your cost estimate to be presented and analyzed. All of this is done to assure the design phase moves in the best direction for the homeowner.
Build & Installation
At this juncture, in order to proceed, a 3% retainer is required.
All the initial services are provided without cost to present accurate information for informed decisions. At this time, the designer will create detailed drawings, giving a visual description of the project, and the product samples are produced to your design specifications. The collection of materials begins and decisions are made all with your designer’s guidance.

Frequently Asked Questions
You have questions, we have answers. We understand the remodeling process may be overwhelming but working with RM Kitchens is easy. With over 50 years of experience, RM Kitchens is well equipped to help you create your vision, generate the design, and manufacture your own custom cabinetry.
What do we do first, how do we start?
We feel the best start you can have in beginning your project is to come to our showroom to see some of the possibilities of design, styles and great ideas that you may incorporate into your new project. It also gives you the chance to meet some of our team who will be part of the process of making your dream space a reality.
From there you can make a second appointment to have one of our designers out to your home if it’s a remodel to see your room space and get first-hand information about the design elements you want to have incorporated in your new design. If It is a new home construction the second meeting is typically here at our showroom to cover plans and details you want to be incorporated into the design.
This can include any or all of the following;
- cabinetry style
- wood species
- wall tile
- appliance recommendations
Once we get to the third appointment we typically have most of the design elements in place in drawings and some elevations to allow us to generate an accurate proposal with all the aspects of your new project in including the cost projection for the various products you have selected.
How long will this project take?
The answer will be based on the size and complexity of the project, but typically the entire project, from designs and selections to finished rooms, is about six weeks.
Do you handle the whole project, or do we need to hire other trades people?
We handle the entire project from start to finish; and have electricians, plumbers, floor refinishers, painters, appliance companies, tile installers and countertop installers that we have worked with for years. However, if you have a person or company you are already familiar with or would like to use, we would be happy to discuss that option. Our success depends on our team, and we feel we have an excellent team of tradespeople we trust to complete any and every project.
How much will this project cost us?
Our designers like to answer this question by saying ‘it will be the same price as a car.’ A car has many price points, all depending on what you like, what you need, and your overall style and the same goes for a remodel or new home project. Questions to ask yourself in the beginning of the process would be: What are we willing to invest in our home? What level of quality are we looking for? What would be our dream for this space? Our creative and well-educated designers can guide you to not only in designing the project but working within your price parameters to get the most return on investment for every dollar spent in your home.
What is your payment schedule?
Through the discussion and design process, we hope we have won your confidence to be the team you chose to move forward with doing your project. We ask for a 3% retainer deposit of the projected cost that is then deducted from the contract price. This allows us to move into the final drawings of elevations and refine final selections to come to a contract and agreement.
Upon signing the final agreement, we ask for a 50% deposit (less the retainer) and from that point we can start the ordering process to begin the fabrication of your new cabinetry, and lay out a timeline of events starting with the initial removal / room remodel through the final hookup and completion so that you know what to expect during the process, and also know the completion date we are working towards. Upon the delivery of your new cabinetry, we ask for a 30% deposit, with the last 20% of the contract amount to be due upon the completion of your new beautiful space.
What is the consultation?
The completion of a successful kitchen remodeling project is achieved through careful planning and attention to details; starting with the very first meeting. Our team of professional designers have extensive experience in designing and managing complex projects. The process we use to accomplish this guides you through the endless options you have, from beginning to end, so that you get exactly what you want. Typically, this method begins with a meeting in our showroom in Lebanon County, PA for a comprehensive discussion of the project. While we welcome all to stop by our showroom at any time, we recommend a scheduled appointment for this initial conference. There are important items to address and our designers will ask the right questions to get the design phase started off right. There is no fee for this consultation meeting.
How do you develop the first design draft?
After the preliminary meeting in our showroom, a site evaluation meeting is scheduled. At this meeting, information is gathered which is needed for the initial phase of designing. With this information, the designer will develop Plan View drawings. The designer’s vision for the space can be explained from these drawings and they will generate discussions which lead to decisions. This early stage plan also provides the data for a preliminary cost estimate to be presented and analyzed. All of this is done to assure the designing phase moves in the best direction. This part of the program is also offered without a fee, except when the location is an extended distance from our workshop.
Are we able to review plans or prototypes?
In order to move forward, at this juncture, a design retainer is required. All of the initial services have been provided without cost in an effort to present accurate information for informed decisions. The retainer amount is accessed based on the complexity and scope of the project, but is typically 3% of the estimated project cost. This initial deposit is returned when a contract is signed. At that time, the designer will create detailed drawings, giving a visual description of the project.
At the same time, product samples are produced and the specification and collection of materials begins, with your designer’s guidance. One unique service we can provide is the design and development of one-of-a-kind Spring Hill Custom Cabinets. We often create cabinets, door styles, and cabinet finishes specifically designed and manufactured to meet a client’s particular requests. Per customer request, individual features are researched to accurately craft and evoke a specific time period or detail. You design it, we build it. This is what we mean when we say that our custom kitchen cabinets are ‘Crafted by Design’.
