As with any great recipe, the ingredients and the cook’s experience are the keys to success and that is so true with a custom kitchen. Experience is obvious, the more time spent designing and renovating custom kitchens the better you will be. However, the ingredients or the products are tougher to determine. You can’t smell a faucet to see if it has gone bad, so what do you do? Of course, my suggestion is to hire an experienced kitchen design store so you can see, feel and experience custom kitchen products.
