Remodeling Kitchen. GC/ kitchen designer/design build

4 years ago

Hi all! I'm having a heck of a time finding the perfect one stop shop for my kitchen remodel. We are not changing the layout but want to maximize space with custom cabinets. I'd like someone to offer suggestions for storage ideas as well as design and lighting. I think I have to finishes covered. I've found a few general contractors but they aren't kitchen designers. I found a design build firm but they outsource the cabinets. I found a kitchen design and contractor that makes cabinets in house but they haven't returned calls or given me an estimate as promised despite spending an hour at my home.

How should I proceed? I've called a few others but wasn't impressed as one offered thermofoil cabinets and touted them as a better product over wood. I'm not convinced.

Should I just hire a separate kitchen designer to work with a general contractor? Should I keep looking for a one stop shop? I'm designing my dream kitchen and don't want to make mistakes.
