Home renovations do come with high costs, especially when you factor in new appliances, cabinets, countertops, or other items. This makes it very tempting to source your home products from one of the large retailers. While these places can offer affordable prices, their selection and staff come with serious limitations. This is where the professional designers at LJ’s Kitchens & Interiors come in handy. See why designing a space with us is so much better for your interior remodel than opting for the limitations offered by a big box store.


#1. Our Designers Actually Know What They’re Talking About

When you try to purchase home goods from a big box store, their employees typically have limited knowledge about the products, how the installation process will go, or even best practices in design. Their work is just a job for a lot of these employees. LJ’s designers come from actual design backgrounds and have decades of experience in interior design, plus they’re in the industry because they love what they do! Our passion shows through in our work, and we’re confident we can help guide you into a more functional, beautiful space.


#2. You’re Not Left On Your Own to Measure

When working with a big box store, they’ll ask you to provide all your measurements so you can figure out what will fit your space. Even with your best attempts, you may end up with pieces that don’t quite fit properly. Wouldn’t it be better if each of your cabinets, appliances, and counters fit the room perfectly? This is exactly the case when you work with LJ’s. We won’t make you measure, we’ll actually come out to your home to take precise measurements. When you order countertops with us, our manufacturer-partners come out and create a digital measurement of your room so they can ensure an exact fit. Because of these trade practices, LJ’s is responsible for making sure everything fits properly, taking that worry off your shoulders.


#3. LJ’s Offers a Much Better Selection, Including Exclusive and Custom Designs

Don’t you want your home to look unique? LJ’s Kitchens offers a much more expansive selection of quality vendors, including Omega Cabinetry, Crystal, and Dura Supreme. We have access to their entire design catalog, including exclusive designs only offered for design firms like us. Since we have access to their entire catalog, we also have more color options for customers who know exactly what they want. When it comes to the highest quality goods like countertops and appliances, we have access to better options than any big box store can supply.


#4. We Can Be Hands-On with the Installation Process

When you purchase home goods from a big box store, their help ends there. Once you take a product home, it’s your problem. You’re left on your own to work with your contractor through the installation phase. This is not the case when you work with the designers at LJ’s. We work closely with clients’ contractors to lend all of our knowledge and experience to the installation and ensure the end result turns out as well as they were planned.


Working With LJ’s is More Affordable Than You May Think!

People go to the big box stores for their inexpensive prices, but LJ’s can work with your budget and still deliver you a better result than they could! Think about the items you want to renovate: appliances, cabinets, countertops; prioritize and create a budget for yourself. When you’re upfront with our designers about what you are working with, we can guide you in the right direction for your needs and resources. Don’t settle for “good enough” when LJ’s can help you create a great design for your space.
