On the Move in the PDX area

May 1, 2024

We are embarking on a New Chapter, again: Our Journey from Hillsboro to Portland and Beyond!

In 2018, a leap of faith led us from Kingman, Arizona to Beaverton, Oregon. Soon after settling in, we opened a small kitchen remodeling showroom in Hillsboro. Jon and I always viewed it as a temporary solution that would service our clients while we established ourselves in the area. Two, fast, years later, we moved to Southwest Portland. While converting our residence into a showcase for our diverse offerings and unique design style, we’ve continued our commute between Hillsboro and Portland.

Our #CoastalCasita kitchen and library nook home displays have even caught the attention of industry influencers-being featured on a Martha Stewart blog and in Clay Imports marketing!
Our mission across all design styles is to uphold the highest level of elegance, while ensuring that every space feels welcoming and relaxing, even to first-time visitors. For this space, we really wanted a relaxing, yet elegant Mexican Beach vibe, mixed with the MidCentury farmhouse bones of the house.

And I must confess, I’m totally fan-girling about it!

But more exciting news has come our way!

Cabinets Unlimited, a respected company in the Portland metro area since 1983, has entrusted us with their legacy.  As we transition into their old space, we are excited to maintain their tradition of excellence and continue offering exceptional cabinetry services to their valued clients.

“Wow, this has been my home for 41 year and now I pass this to YOU!  It will be nice to see it go to someone like you two.”

Victoria- Cabinets Unlimited

Although our time with Victoria and Scott has been brief, we are eager for this new venture. We are truly grateful for their dedication and backing, aiming to exceed their expectations and make them proud. In May, we will begin the gradual transition to the Tigard showroom location, bidding farewell to our Hillsboro spot. Our new showroom will offer designated hours for design consultations and client inquiries. We will also continue our current bidding process, maintaining flexible off-hour appointments and virtual estimates, including photo estimates as well.

How long do you plan on staying in the home?

This question is crucial to deciding the quality and cost of goods for the project- more on this in a bit!

What type of Kitchen layout do you plan on using?

Sticking with the same layout is always the most economical option. However, if you want to change the layout- be aware of extra costs: electrical, plumbing, flooring, framing, drywall, paint, etc. Layout changes typically require a permit and possibly architectural drawings.

what is your budget?

Essential question! Even if you don't want to max out your budget, be prepared to discuss your allowance with the contractor. A reliable contractor will be able to work with your budget and your preferences to create the kitchen you really want. Realistic expectations and budgets are easier to work with up front- otherwise, cutting corners may end up costing you more in the long run, leaving you with an unfinished project.

are they qualified?

A qualified builder will guarantee a professionally finished product that will meet your budgeted expectations and time-frames.
BEWARE of hiring a builder without a contractor's license. Without it, you have little to no recourse if problems arise.

are they able?

The purpose of remodeling or building a home is to increase the value in the home itself as well as create a space for those who will live there to enjoy.
BEWARE of hiring someone who doesn't have the ability to make that happen or someone who doesn't care to make it happen.

Address resale issues.

If you're looking to resell or make a return on the remodel, design something with massive appeal- not something selective to just your taste.
To get ideas, think about scoping out remodels or houses for sale around your neighborhood- stay in competition with those upgrades to ensure maximum ROI.

Have you determined the scope?

How big of project can you afford; what is your time-frame for the construction period? This is when having a budget is helpful for a contractor. You may have certain desires for you space and the time-frame you wish to make it happen- but a limited budget. A qualified contractor will be able to take your ideas and the reality of building supplies, and create a crafty alternative that you'd love!

Have you thought outside the box?

Once the layout is agreed on... we get to the fun part! What kind of cabinets do you want? Builder grade cabinetry should be the lowest quality that you would put into any project. Upgrades vary and include all materials and quality of craftsmanship. You and your contractor will work together, and can discuss common upgrades.
