done, lunches get made, meals are eaten, and family relationships are formed.

Find the Right Team
To make your dream kitchen a reality, you need the very best people on your team. Start by
scheduling consultations with contractors to find the right fit for your needs. To each
meeting, take with you your inspiration and your enthusiasm, and keep notes about what
each contractor can offer you.
Apart from your major appliances, the cabinetry in your kitchen is what is going to stand out
the most. Make sure that the cabinetry accurately reflects your style and responds to your
needs. Every Wright Kitchen begins with an obligation free consultation. To be quite honest,
we just really love discussing potential new projects with excited homeowners! We start by
discussing what you see. The material, the functionality, the finishes, the hardware,
everything, and we go from there.
Once you’ve found the right team, approved the budget and decided on a timeline, it’s time
to get started! Your contractor will tell you exactly what you need to do to help them do
their jobs. In our experience, this involves about one week of paper plates and takeout
menus. It’s a win win for everyone!
Don’t let you your dream kitchen stay a dream. Getting the ball rolling is the hardest step in
any home renovation, but with the right team, the whole project will be a breeze. You’ll be
hosting dinner parties in no time!
