Our experienced team follows a complete design process to make sure every aspect of your project is catered for and that your design vision is brought to life. From developing the design concept to creating a layout, and selecting and ordering products, we will work with you every step of the way.
How do I start?
Start gathering ideas from your favorite websites, social media sites, or home design television shows. Create ideabooks with your favorite concepts, color schemes, and products and bring this to your meeting with your designer. Take a look around your existing space and think about what you like and don’t like about your existing space, as this will help you determine what you want to change in your new design. Start thinking about your budget and financing for your project. It helps to know your budget before you start discussing scope and products with your designer.
Visit our showroom
Our showroom is designed to show you firsthand what can be done with standard cabinets as well as custom cabinetry. Bring your house plans, measurements and all the ideas you have when you visit our showroom. We have samples of a complete range of design products and full design displays in our showroom, so you can also find inspiration just by walking around our Lansing, MI showroom! You can also find everything you need, compare products, and match up different elements of your design all in one convenient location with the assistance of your McDaniels designer!
Set an appointment
Meet one of our kitchen or bath designers, who work both in the showroom and onsite visiting clients’ homes. It is best to make an appointment to ensure that your designer is available in our Lansing, MI showroom when you visit us.
Your designer will walk you through the process of planning your kitchen or bath. Your designer will measure your home, lay out the design, and help select the products you need. The most successful designs blend your ideas with our experience. Feel free to let us know what design elements are important to you.
McDaniels will walk you through a budget analysis of your project. This gives you a clear understanding of how much each element of your design costs, allowing you to make decisions on where to focus your budget in terms of your design scope and products. You can also compare different product options and decide which products fit within your budget and where you need to find alternatives.
At the time you place the order and contracts are signed, your designer will review the order, the drawings, and the product selections in line-item detail. This will ensure that the products you select are what is ordered. A 50% deposit is required at the time the order is placed. The order is then turned over to order processing.
You may select McDaniels’ installation partner to install your project, or you are welcome to use your own contractor. Our installation company will provide detailed estimates and review the project in your home to ensure accuracy.
Nonstock orders usually take several weeks to arrive at our warehouse. You will receive a phone call when your order is complete.
Once you are ready for your new kitchen or bath to be delivered, our delivery staff will make arrangements for delivery of your products to be ready for installation.
