What Sets Kitchen Kraft Designers Apart

May 18, 2016 3 min read

A kitchen remodel will only be as good as the people who are putting it together.  Taking the vision of a client from dream to reality requires knowledge, experience, and talent.  The certified kitchen designers at Kitchen Kraft possess those qualities and more, providing our customers with the absolute best of the best in kitchen design.



What Is A Certified Designer?

Being certified as a kitchen designer means several important things:

  • The individual is devoted to the craft of designing bathrooms.
  • The designer is an industry leader and expert in their field.
  • The designer meets a series of essential guidelines.


Why Do Certified Designers Need Guidelines?

Guidelines are present and necessary in every field.  Without guidelines in medicine, physicians would be able to potentially carry out unsafe procedures or give harmful medications.  Without guidelines in restaurants, we could be harmed by unsanitary food.

Guidelines in kitchen design certification are just as important because:

  • They ensure the designer is able to recognize the importance of consumer health, safety, and welfare in kitchen design.
  • They can be used as benchmarks to assess a designer’s work and allows them to be tested in core competencies related specifically to kitchen design.
  • As a consumer, you will be happy that our certified designers follow and meet these guidelines, as this leads to higher quality professionals available for your project.

  3. CMKBD(c) Certified Master Kitchen & Bath Designer.
