Our Process

Are you thinking of updating your kitchen or bathroom? Wondering if a kitchen or bathroom designer is required?

At AKG Design Studio, we believe it is, because we have a process that ensures the best results, for our clients, their families, and their lifestyle. We believe in a holistic design approach that allows us to create comprehensive designs from start to finish.

 

Initial Meeting
There is no place home! So we start at yours. An AKG Design Studio designer will come to your house to see the space, evaluate the situation and learn about you and your family’s lifestyle.  Our designs are holistic, and we create them to harmonize with the rest of your space.    

At this meeting we will measure your space and take photos of the area our client wants to be designed.

Design and Review
AKG Design Studio takes all the data we collected and converts it into a few sample design concepts. During this phase, we address problems identified at the initial meeting. We create solutions for the issues with a  few possible layouts and initial selections.

Presentation
At this point, AKG Design presents our clients with floor plans and 3D renderings to bring their vision to life. We review the design options and help our clients select the best one to fit their lifestyle. Next, we decide on every cabinet placement and accessory size to ensure the best use of the space and maximize storage.


Selections
Most of our customer love road trips and enjoy meeting us with AKG Design’s vendors to see all the exciting options they have. These choices can include but are not limited to cabinets to countertops to appliances. If our client is not the road trip type, we will narrow down the selections and do a small presentation for them at their home. So our customers are not overwhelmed we focus on the best solutions based on what works for their lifestyle and design.    


Final Design Package
AKG Design Studios creates a final design package that includes all our clients need to get their project started. The final design package includes all floor plans, elevations, cabinets specifications, floor selections, tile layout,  cabinets, hardware and wall colors. The package can then be turned over to their contractors, or if they are the DIY type, they are ready to start the demolition.   


Cabinetry
While clients are not obligated, AKG Design Studio are happy to quote cabinetry from Vest Line cabinets, these cabinets range from entry level to custom. It is easy for AKG Design Studio to match their clients with the right product, to ensure the perfect outcome to your project because we already know our client’s needs.  


Installation
While we do not offer installation services, AKG Design Studio is happy to introduce our client’s to some of the finest contractors in the DC metro area. We have worked with them for many years, and have come to love and trust that they will bring our designs to life.


Project Management
As an add-on feature, AKG Design Studio offers a project management service.  If clients are too busy to deal with deliveries of material, coordinate contractors and would like just one point of contact during this process, this is an ideal option. We will ensure a smooth transition from the design to cleaning up the final piece of construction dust.   


Walkthrough
At AKG we love our projects and are excited to see the final transformation while hearing about our client’s experience.  At the completion of the project, we walk through and make sure everything turned out just the way it was planned. Moreover, of course, now it is time to take pictures to show the world our client’s beautiful new space.
