If you been through a kitchen remodel before, you know that the old adage "it takes a village" certainly applies. A renovation is composed of many phases, some of which overlap and must be carefully orchestrated in a strict order, so it’s crucial to get it right to avoid wasted time and money. Some of these phases are design-oriented, some architectural, some construction–based, and others focused on materials and appliances.
Here again is the misconception "an architect is not an interior designer." Untrue. It's absolutely true that an interior designer is not an architect, but we architects are trained in all aspects of design, inside and out. Not all architects have an interest in tweaking the interiors of their projects but many of us do and we have to contend with ideas out there that we cannot design a kitchen without the help of another so-called professional kitchen designer. I design many kitchens in my work as an architect, and I am the only professional outside of the contractors that my clients need for their kitchen projects, from finishes to fixtures.
