At the outset, Chris will work with you to gain a full understanding of your project. He can offer expert advice on the choice of wood, cabinet design, and layout options. CKD has produced kitchens in many styles, from classic Shaker to sleek Euro-designs, from ornate frame and panel to country style with old-growth reclaimed wood. He is open to your ideas, and is able to incorporate them into a design that meets your budget, your timeframe, and your vision for the perfect kitchen.

Chris is happy to work with your architect, builder, or project manager to build and install a kitchen designed by other members of your project team. In this case, Chris will produce measured drawings based on existing plans making sure all aspects of a project are accounted for including lighting, electrical functions, and plumbing.
