We are truly thrilled that we found Larry at Distinctive Kitchen Designs to design our dream kitchen. Never in our wildest dreams did we think we would end up with this amazing transformation. We went from having a small galley kitchen to this amazing open concept. We met with a few kitchen designers before we met with Lawrence at Distinctive Kitchen Designs and we immediately connected with him & felt trust with him. When we first met Lawrence, he listened to what we had in mind and a few days later he came back with incredible blueprints with amazing details. He even added special touches just by picking up on our interests during our meeting. For example, he observed my husband was a big coffee drinker so he made sure to add a barista station in the blueprint plans. Things I would never even think of, he shown us so many possibilities. Once the project commenced, Lawrence made sure everything ran smooth. From the demo, to the electric, plumbing, floor resurfacing, cabinet install, countertop install, he stayed in contact the whole time making sure everything was going well. He would inspect everything to make sure it was perfect and if we were satisfied every step of the way. We were blown away by the quality of service from Distinctive Kitchen Designs. Don’t consider anyone else! Call Lawrence Lambert! He not only does kitchens but he does bathrooms as well. I can’t wait to work with him again when we do our bathroom upgrades.

Lawrence Lambert, principal of Distinctive Kitchen Designs, LLC, was extremely professional and knowledgeable to work with when working with a design client of mine for a full kitchen remodel and 3 bathroom remodels. His expertise in cabinetry design, and calm demeanor when explaining the pros and cons on different cabinetry styles and materials to choose from was very helpful to my client. My client was able to make the best selection based on their needs and style. He provided timely installation and superior customer service to my client as well. Penny Mesenbrink, Designer

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    I believe in trying to charge a fair price for my work. I spend allot of time on each project. My customers tell me that my prices are fair. My average kitchens with labor runs between $24,000 to $39,000 depending on size and customer preferences.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    Setting up an onsite meeting. The first meeting, I start by asking the clients what is their style and vision of their new kitchen. I have a questionnaire I go through covering all items. I take fine measurements of the space. If walls are going to be removed I will go into the basement to see if the wall is supported by a beam or if plumbing is running through the walls to be removed. I will draw a new design for the project, so we will have a second meeting where I present the drawings and pricing.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I worked as a custom cabinet maker for over 15 years and I have worked as a kitchen designer for 25 years now.
