For the last year or so people have spent less time eating out and more time cooking at home. As a result, they realized their kitchens could use some serious updating. A virtual design consultation is one of the best ways to begin the process towards your new dream kitchen. Each of our Kitchen Designers is equipped with a webcam and screen-sharing capabilities to help customers efficiently accomplish their kitchen remodel. Here’s what you can expect from the initial discovery meeting to the checkout process:


1. Virtual Discovery Meeting

Throughout these virtual meetings, you and your Designer will communicate using webcams. The most important step in the initial meeting is that you give your Designer a “virtual tour” of your entire kitchen. Along with the dimensions you provide, this video tour gives your Designer a unique look at any quirks in your kitchen. Make sure you share your likes and dislikes, along with ‘wish list’ items.


2. Initial Design Walkthrough

During the second meeting, your Designer will share their screen showing the drawings they’ve created from the video tour and all other information you provided in the initial meeting. Your Designer will take note of any changes you request. If they are extensive, the initial design will be revised and another walkthrough meeting will be scheduled to finalize the design.


3. Final Design Walkthrough

Once you approve your final kitchen layout, your Designer will verify everything’s correct and that all your questions have been answered. From there, you will receive a final design packet within 2-3 days. Feel free to take a couple of days to look everything over. It’s very important to verify that the kitchen dimensions are correct, along with all of the appliance openings.


4. Checkout Process Walkthrough

To help make checkout easier, your Designer can walk you through every step. At this point, your designer will answer any installation or design questions you may have along with shipping etas. For all other questions about shipping and receiving, please reach out to a CliqStudios Customer Service Representative, as your Designer doesn’t have access to this information.


Benefits of Virtual Design Consultations

Our designers are here to accommodate customers’ needs in any way possible. If you’re uncomfortable sharing via a webcam or don’t have the technology to do so, you can send photos to your Designer instead. Virtual walkthroughs do, however, help in developing a working relationship with your Designer. Keep in mind that this is a two-way interaction and bring as much information as possible to the table. Each of our Designers is an experienced industry professional and is here to offer guidance and advice.
