STEP 1

Consultation

Explore Kitchens offers two options for receiving your free 3D kitchen design.

You can drop by our design studio in Tysons, VA at 1660 International Dr., Suite 600, for a peek at our digital design tools and Explore kitchen countertop samples. Or, we can come to you by virtual visit or an in-home visit. By meeting in your home, we get the chance to actually explore the options in your existing space and take initial measurements.

“Explore First” is more than just a motto with us at Explore Kitchens, and we love it when clients come into our initial consultation with a good idea of what products we offer and what kind of kitchen, or bath upgrades they would like to see installed for them. That’s why the Explore Kitchen Visualizer is free to use on our site. Take your time, do your due diligence and when you’re ready, we’ll be happy to walk you through the process.

STEP 2

Planning

If you dropped by our studio for your initial consultation, we’ll need to get exact dimensions to ensure proper estimates and fit. This is especially important for countertops. That’s why we bring our Laser Express digital measuring equipment into your kitchen or bath for accurate measurements up to 1 mm. We also use a proprietary template that allows us to cut your countertops perfect the first time for easy installation.

While we’re there, we’ll get a few pictures of your existing kitchen and bath for cabinet count and layout. Working with your existing space allows us to give you the best options that will fit in your kitchen or bath. Explore kitchen remodeling focuses on new cabinets, countertops, mosaic tile backsplash, and flooring.

We’ve got some great guides to help you make those decisions, and we’re always willing to offer guidance. We’ll use your selections to provide an accurate estimate of the project cost.

STEP 3

Ordering and Countertop Fabrication

Once we have a precise custom template for your countertops, and count on cabinets, tile and sinks you may need, we’ll set up a countertop fabrication order, and put in orders with our exclusive wholesalers. Working with local suppliers means we cut time and shipping costs, plus we get you the best options, from neighbors you can trust.

While tile, cabinets, and sinks are generally available for delivery, each stone countertop is manufactured to fit your kitchen precisely. Our supplier sends your countertop slab to the workshop, where it will be cut, shaped, ground, and polished to fit your custom template perfectly. It will arrive with sink-holes, edges, and seams, for the easiest installation.

Once your materials have all arrived, we’ll be ready to start the final phase of your kitchen project!

STEP 4

Installation

While your countertops are being perfected, our team of dedicated installers will begin work on your tile and cabinet needs. Explore Kitchens is a Virginia Class A General Contractor, licensed, bonded, and insured to manage all phases of your project. Our installation teams have decades of experience and are the top recommended local installers from each wholesale brand we provide, to ensure you get the best service on time, every time.

We run a tight ship when it comes to scheduling and completing your work with minimum interruption to your busy life. We understand that the kitchen is the heart of your home and we want to give you the best in mid-grade luxury fixtures with as little fuss as possible.

Your dream kitchen is complete when we return your kitchen to the same sparkling condition we found it in, and once it passes our quality inspection. We install one coat of sealer over all stone surfaces to keep it looking as good as it started for years to come.
