This consultation includes:
In the Create a Classic Kitchen consultation you will get Maria’s guidance to create a classic and timeless new kitchen that perfectly suits your style.
Maria will provide source links for recommended finishes. The brands and products she recommends are widely distributed and easy to source at mid range to inexpensive price points. Maria is not compensated by brands she recommends (i.e. paint, countertop, backsplash, flooring, etc.). These finishes are selected because they are the right colour to create a classic and timeless look.
If the item cannot be ordered online, or you would prefer to source them locally, you can take the names, images or samples of these finishes to your local suppliers to find something comparable. Often, products can be sourced easily from your local home improvement store. Decorative items such as lighting may occasionally include affiliate links.
She will give you at least a couple of options, complete with live source links, wherever possible for any of the the following elements you may need help with to create your ideal kitchen:
- CABINET COLOUR
- WALL COLOUR
- TRIM AND CEILING COLOUR
- FAUCET AND HARDWARE
- DECORATIVE LIGHTING
- APPLIANCE COLOUR
When will I receive my advice?
Your Create a Classic Kitchen Consultation advice will arrive via email within 8-10 business days from when we receive your complete information.
How can we do this online?
“Because getting colour right is much more about choosing the correct undertone than being able to predict how the colour will change in the light.”
How the eDesign process works
This consultation is for you if
Lucky you! It’s time to design your dream kitchen! You want to love it forever, but you are overwhelmed with the endless options and possible combinations of finishes. You may have tile and counter top samples propped everywhere in the hopes that a magical combination will jump out and say ‘pick me’. Or you might be wondering where to begin. With this package we can provide you with the perfect combination finishes and details that will work seamlessly together to create a kitchen that will be timeless and beautiful.
From reading my blog you know that NO ONE ELSE will help ensure that your colours and undertones coordinate perfectly.
Unless you were moving into a brand new house, have you EVER loved the dated backsplash in a home that you have purchased? Chances are high that your answer is NO. How about a “creative” backsplash and counter top combo? Still NO I’ll bet.
You’ve landed where you need to be to get the best advice available to create a beautiful and timeless kitchen you will love for years to come.
In order to help us get you your solution faster, we ask that you include photos of samples you are considering (you will receive detailed instructions for photographing them properly). We are likely to send you out to source more options within certain parameters and have you photograph those in the context of the other elements too. Consulting online involves some leg work, but having professional advice for finishes that are pricey and relatively permanent makes it worth it!
Maria has worked with thousands of clients will all imaginable types finishes and colours. This service provides guidance for DIY decorating so it’s rare to have after photos that are worth posting, because they require professional styling and photography. This is why you won’t see many of them on the blog.
As soon as you’ve purchased your solution, you will receive a form to fill out as well as an information sheet on how we need photos taken so we can accurately give you the right advice.
One final note:
When you get colour advice from the Maria Killam team, we are not guessing. We will not be asking you questions like “What do you think?” Unless you really do have two choices where both will work equally as well and still give you the classic and timeless look you want for your home. What we are doing is using our experience and expertise to find you the perfect colour solution that will work in your specific design situation.
If you need the footprint of your kitchen redesigned you need a kitchen designer. We specialize in specifying the right colours and/or neutrals for your finishes but we do not manage design details like layout. If you need drawings and layouts you will have to hire a designer. However, if you already have the look and feel and the finishes selected for your kitchen, you will only need drawings and that will cost less.

DESIGN CONSULTATION GUARANTEE AND REFUND
You have paid for our time so we can’t provide a refund if for some reason you move or something changes before you can implement our recommendations. We want you to be happy, so if you have any objections or concerns about the recommendations, we ask that you share them with us along with photos of your colour testing and give us the opportunity to tweak our selections before you reject them outright.
Please note, we will not provide a refund unless we have had the chance to make adjustments to our initial recommendations.
