Kitchen Remodeling | Minneapolis & St. Paul
Kitchens are one of, if not, the most used space within a home. If you are thinking about a full on kitchen remodel or just a re-fresh, it’s important to consider the following questions – How many cooks utilize the kitchen? What type of appliances are needed for how you and your family use the kitchen? Do you entertain a little or often? Do you need a baking area? What does the new cabinetry need to offer from a functionality standpoint? How many mini appliances like KitchenAid mixer, Vitamix, toaster, etc. do you need to house? Do you need a trash/recycle center? Do you need one or two sinks? What doesn’t work in your current kitchen and what’s important for you to have in your new kitchen?
Whew! That’s a lot of questions and frankly, it’s only the tip of the iceberg. At Che Bella Interiors, we know the right question to ask and the right steps to take. Team up with our experienced designers and we’ll guide you through the entire kitchen remodeling process. We’ll discuss all aspects of creating, remodeling, or updating the kitchen area of your home, starting with questions about how you use the kitchen and how the kitchen needs to function for you and your family. From there we’ll develop concept plans/layouts, sketches and drawings and discuss material selections including cabinetry, countertops, plumbing, lighting, appliances, paint, stain, etc. And, once a final plan is in place, we’ll work with our trade partners to gather bids and estimates and provide full service implementation and project management.

Each project begins with a meeting to understand your goals and expectations. We want to better understand who you are and what the space needs to do for you and your family. We will discuss project location, goals, budget, time frame, etc.
The Letter of Agreement is a written confirmation that outlines the overall project scope and design fees. After the initial interview we meet in person to present the Letter of Agreement, and answer any additional questions you may have. Once the agreement is finalized we collect the design retainer and get busy working on your design plan.
Our team will create design solutions that meets your needs and showcases your personal style. This may include detailed space plans, furniture plans, elevations and sketches. This phase also includes providing recommendations for finishes, materials, furnishings, fabrics, lighting, and more. After we finish gathering all the right variables for your project we meet with you to review the plans and material recommendations. We then finalize your design drawings so we can move to the next phase of the design process.
During the design documentation phase we detail out all of the drawings so everyone understands the overall design intent and so we can gather accurate bids from our necessary trade partners. This may include specifying all finishes and fixtures to include flooring, countertops, wall treatments, lighting, cabinetry, hardware, etc.
This is where all the details and planning come to life! If necessary, we create an overall schedule/timeline for the implementation of your project. We coordinate and work closely with each trade partner and are available to answer any and all questions as the remodeling phase unfolds. Following construction, we coordinate the delivery and installation of your new furnishings, accessories and artwork.
We value each and every one of our clients and their project and strive for superior customer service. We complete projects with the utmost attention to detail and work hard to create a seamless design process that is interactive and enjoyable.
