The most important part of a good kitchen designer’s job is to provide customers with constructive appraisals of the good and the bad features for any design they are considering. Because kitchen designers sell the cabinets, we have the added responsibility of ensuring that what we sell actually works and fits. This experience and knowledge frequently saves customers from devastating disappointment and design errors like mis-sized clearance spaces, and fewer people able to sit at a kitchen table or an island. These errors routinely appear in drawings by architects.

Designers that work for design and build firms or at home centers, such as Lowes and The Home Depot, are usually paid less then half what better cabinet dealerships pay.
