On The House

James Carey of the Carey Brothers On the House has been remodeling professionally for almost four decades. When he reached out to CliqStudios about remodeling his own kitchen,  he was quickly impressed. 

After his consultation with a CliqStudios kitchen designer, he knew he and his project was in good hands. 

...the full-color perspectives that CliqStudios provides as part of their design package made the process ever so easy. They are no strangers to technology and how to make the most of it to convey their message to folks like my wife and me.

HERE'S HOW WE STARTED

To start, CliqStudios paired James with an expert CliqStudios designer. He received renderings and room elevations to helps him fully envision his new space from top to bottom. 

We can describe the finished product in a word — fantastic! The shaker doors and navy blue finish are everything that we hoped for and more!

Once James's cabinets arrived, it was time to open up the boxes and install his cabinets. He began by inspecting his order. 

Quickly, he was impressed by the careful packaging and user friendly steps that made installation a breeze.  Installing the cabinets was simple his DIY kitchen remodel. 

James was confident his new cabinets would last a long time and perfectly fit his space. 

THAT'S THE PLAN. NOW OFF WE GO!

We felt like we were preparing to open gifts on Christmas morning... Opening the first box – and all subsequent boxes — we discovered that everything was neatly wrapped and all corners had ample damage protection.

HERE'S THE FINAL RESULT!

In the end, James got the kitchen he wanted at a price he couldn't refuse. He explains that homeowners can easily spend three to four times more for custom cabinets but not get three or four times the value. With his kitchen, he got the quality product and price he was searching for. 

His new kitchen is a functional space with a timeless feel, perfectly complimented by his choice of navy blue cabinets. From design to install, his process with CliqStudios was smooth. 

The accessories — pull out shelves, lazy susan, and vertical tray dividers maximize storage and provide easy access.
