Q: How do I select a kitchen or bathroom cabinet supplier?

A: When you are selecting a kitchen or bathroom cabinet supplier, we encourage you to consider the quality of the product, the selection of materials and colours available, and what type of warranty is offered.

Your cabinet supplier should be knowledgeable, helping you to understand the product, trends, cabinetry styles and materials. Your kitchen cabinetry supplier should be capable of offering you innovative solutions that suit your style and function needs for you as well as anyone in the home who may also be using the same space. Finally, your cabinet supplier or designer should be straightforward and honest, backing up their product with a warranty program.

Q: How can a designer help with my kitchen or bathroom renovation?

A: Kitchen cabinetry is a very specialized and intricate practice that requires experience and knowledge to get just right. By working with a kitchen or bathroom designer, you are not handing over the keys to your project, you are consulting an expert, just as you would with your car and a mechanic, your teeth and a dentist, your shoes and a shoe smith. When you are choosing a kitchen or bathroom cabinetry designer to work alongside, you can request images of their previous work and you should feel comfortable with them; they will be in your home after all. The design process is collaborative, you should ensure your designer shares your passion and vision for the space. They are your expert, they are not you.

At the Merit Kitchens design showroom in Calgary, cabinetry is what we love and designing kitchens, bathrooms and other spaces throughout the home is what we do everyday.
