Kitchen Design Services

We are professional kitchen designers

Besides addressing the whole layout and design challenge of your kitchen, we also select and specify a combination of beautiful and harmonious materials. Style comes from far more than just the cabinetry you choose. There are many more considerations – what backsplash tile to use, countertops, paint colors, lighting, and electrical plans, planning the perfect place for a piece of artwork, cabinet hardware, trims, large appliance choices, and more. Style and beauty come from how all the elements visually complement one another.

Maggie McManus, C.K.D., owner and chief designer at McManus Group, is among the first group of Kitchen Designers in the United States to be certified by the NKBA. See NKBA to learn more.

 

A new kitchen well suited to your home

Even though your kitchen will be new with updated materials and appliances, it need not clash with the character of your surroundings. A key to giving your kitchen that ‘settled in’ feeling is to respect the architectural integrity and tone set by your home. Your finished kitchen will be inviting to your family and friends and customized to your use and practical requirements such as your unique storage needs.

Custom storage solutions can make it easy for you to find and access anything you need when and where you need it. Your bowls and small appliances, cooking utensils, carving knives, spices, and oils may naturally belong near your cooking area – not across the room. Cups, glasses, and plates may be handy near your dishwasher, countertop, or dining area, depending on your space and how you use it.

Our kitchen design work is guided by a simple principle

“Order is the shape upon which beauty depends”

– Pearl Buck

A kitchen in good order is a happy kitchen and will improve your daily life for years to come.

We work as a team with you and your contractor

  • We supply the materials specified by us and chosen by you.
  • The contractor supplies construction materials and installation.
  • You supply your ideas and vision.

The team becomes you, McManus Group, and your general contractor all working together, resulting in a strong chain of accountability, smoother decision making, and efficient workflow. McManus Group frees your contractors to do what they do best – demolition, carpentry, and installation. We hand off a complete design plan for your contractor to follow. We remain available to your contractor to assist in keeping the job on track and installed according to plan.

Our best practices have proven to be a winning formula for a wide range of successful home remodeling projects.
