If you're in the market for a brand-new kitchen, or if you're contemplating a redesign of your existing cooking space, you may want to investigate local kitchen cabinet designers. The cabinets are often the most prominent (and just about always the most expensive element) of the kitchen design, so making sure they're done to perfection is never a bad idea.

The first thing you'll want to do when contemplating hiring a kitchen cabinet designer is determine your budget. This may narrow down your initial designer choices, but more importantly, it'll give you and whichever designer you hire a firm idea of the scope of the project and help define the materials used for the project.

Another consideration when hiring a kitchen cabinet designer is timeline. If a designer is in high demand, he or she may need to push your project back considerably. If you're on a strict timeline, you'll need to express this up front to any potential designer and ensure that your timing can work for them.

Lastly and perhaps most importantly, check references for any designer you're contemplating hiring. If you have friends or acquaintances who've used the designer, start with them, but also request references from the designer's three or so most recent projects. You don't want any surprises, so it's best to perform as much due diligence up front as possible.
