Our Process

Valcucine Chicago is here to provide you with the tools to create your dream kitchen. Whether you are a homeowner or a design professional, our trained staff will guide you through the process from start to finish.

Consultation:

A Valcucine designer will walk you through the displays and talk to you about the possibilities and options we have to offer. We would love to hear as much as possible about your space and needs at this point. We will discuss basic layouts, finishes and budget in preparation for the next step.

Design:

In order to start designing your kitchen we will need a plan of the space and some photos for reference. At this point we would meet to discuss the space in depth and to gather all of the info we would need to create a budget proposal. We will interview you to find out your cooking habits storage needs, appliance choices and finish preferences.

Presentation:

In about a week or so your designer will invite you back to the showroom for a presentation that will include drawings and/or 3D renderings, finish selections and a price estimate for your project. This presentation will give you an idea of what Valcucine Chicago can do for you.

Design Retainer:

Once you decide to proceed with Valcucine Chicago, we will require a retainer to prepare an order. The retainer agreement establishes you as our client and allows us to visit the site for a final measure, refine the design and prepare the order. The retainer amount goes towards the cabinetry order and is not an additional cost.

Order:

Once the perfect design is settled, the order is placed with our factory in Italy. The lead time is typically about 16 weeks until the cabinetry is delivered to the site.

Space Prep:

Our technical staff will work with the project's contractor and/or architect to make sure the space is prepared correctly to accept the kitchen. This will include a technical set of drawings and possible meetings at the showroom or the jobsite.

Installation:

Our team of trained installers will set, mount and level all cabinets onsite. They will work with project subs to make sure the kitchen is perfect.

Kitchen Orientation:

A Valcucine representative will visit your home (if local) to demonstrate the special features of your kitchen, talk to you about proper maintenance and walk you through the registration process to activate the product guarantees. After a glass of champagne and a toast, your kitchen is ready to enjoy for a lifetime.
