Planning

Design Process
at Somrak Kitchens

At Somrak Kitchens, Inc., we make it possible to turn your dreams of having a custom kitchen into reality. Whether you are interested in fine cabinetry for your kitchen, entertainment center, bar, library built-ins, or bath we can accommodate you.

With the expertise of our Certified Kitchen Designers, and experienced staff, we can create innovative designs that are functional and aesthetically beautiful. We provide the finest selection in brand name quality cabinets, counters, and appliances. Whether you are building a new home or remodeling an existing one, Somrak Kitchens can assist you with all of your custom Cabinetry needs.

Every project is unique and its duration depends upon many factors including the design process, cabinet production, and construction schedules. Since each project differs in scope and size, the time involved to complete each project varies. However, as a general rule of thumb you should begin the planning process at least 3-4 months in advance of your desired completion date. Your designer at Somrak Kitchens will be able to give you a better timetable for your project.
