As Johnson Lumber, we’ve been serving the Maryland community’s lumber needs for more than 100 years.
In that time, we’ve had the opportunity to build and grow with so many of you. As a family-owned and operated business, one of our favorite moments is hearing from folks like you about their first time coming to one of our lumber yards with your grandparents!
As our community has grown, so have we. We wanted to continue to be able to serve and support you to the best of our abilities. That’s how we started on a path that took us from simply providing the lumber and the hardware for your new kitchens to helping you realize the kitchens of your dreams.
We’ve really enjoyed this new chapter as we work with homeowners like you from the dreaming and design stage, to working with our kitchen design team, to picking out the building materials, and finally, to celebrating the finished project with you.
For those of you who haven’t gone through a kitchen design yet, or who are considering a kitchen remodel in Maryland, allow us to share the steps of our Johnson Lumber process.
How Johnson Lumber Helps With Your Kitchen Designs
A kitchen is unlike any other room in your house. Apart from its sentimental value – it’s where the family gathers in the morning, and where the big moments are shared during the holidays – it’s also technically complicated.
In fact, kitchens are often more complex than other rooms due to plumbing, electrical and gas lines, appliances, and work and storage areas.
A good kitchen design team recognizes the importance of creating a beautiful, functional space that still takes into account the technical needs of the room.
How A Kitchen Designer Can Help
A professional kitchen designer has both the big picture experience of seeing the finished project and an eye for the details that are essential to keeping the project going.
While hiring professionals does cost more than doing it all yourself, it can still end up being a good move for your budget, as they can help you save money on the total cost of the remodel by making efficient use of the space and materials.
Plus, they’ll ensure that the project is completed on time and within budget.
Beyond the financials, a kitchen designer also brings aesthetic value, helping to create a space that reflects the homeowner’s style and preferences.
The Importance Of A Kitchen Design Team
Some homeowners may ask why they need a kitchen design team when they already have a contractor.
In our experience, a contractor does have some level of expertise, and they can advise on a kitchen remodel. A kitchen designer, on the other hand, specializes in kitchens and can offer an unmatched level of quality. As a part of a kitchen design team, they are able to combine their myriad strengths and offer homeowners a much better experience.
That includes helping to:
- Design everything from the floorplan to the finishing touches
- Advise on materials and appliances to ensure that the kitchen is both functional and stylish
- Create a lighting plan that illuminates the space and highlights key features
- Pull together a cohesive design that reflects the homeowner’s style and preferences
- Work with suppliers and contractors to ensure that the project is completed efficiently and cost-effectively
