Kitchen Remodel

Working with Lawrence was great, he was always on time, he always talked to me before and after the day to make sure we were on the same page. I has a vision of what I wanted my kitchen to be, and he turned it into reality! I am thrilled with the results! Thanks Lawrence!

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

It is my pleasure to give a strong recommendation for Lawrence Lambert of Distinctive Kitchen Designs. I worked with Lawrence this past summer (2018) on a 1,600 sq. ft. total condo renovation. There were many pieces of the project, made more difficult since I was living in NYC during construction. Lawrence assured me that he had done several long-distance projects. That made me feel comfortable. I also liked when he told me that he really loves what he does and his main goal is to make his clients happy. And he sure did! Lawrence did a beautiful kitchen design for me. It is stunning! I get so many complements on it. He took my vision and made it happen. He sent the designs via email and we spoke often. I visited every 2-3 weeks. Lawrence also recommended various other contractors that he works with (electric, painting, plumbing, etc.) that I hired with his coordination. Lawrence was also very helpful with troubleshooting certain issues that did occur (inevitably!). He helped me with my decision making, especially when to save money and when to spend it. I can say I really liked working with Lawrence and and trust him completely. I could not be more happy with the results. If you hire Lawrence Lambert for your kitchen and home renovation, you will not be sorry!

  • 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 $22,000 to $35,000 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 there style and vision of there new kitchen going to be. I have a questioner I go threw 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 there are load bearing or if plumbing is running through the walls to be removed. I will be doing 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 21 years now.
