YOUR DESIGN JOURNEY
01. Design Consultation
An experienced designer works with you to learn more about your project. Together, you explore initial ideas, reference photos for inspiration, review likes and dislikes, assess the scope of work and identify any budget or timeline considerations. We will also review our Design Process and Agreement with you, which includes a design retainer to move forward with the next phase of the project.
02. In-Home Visit
Our team visits your home to take measurements and photos that will be used to reference throughout the project. That time is also useful to review your current space and further discuss the vision for the project. Here, we start to investigate any potential construction considerations such as mechanicals, load-bearing walls, electrical service, wall straightness, and more.
03. Design Concepts & Review
We use the measurements and details gathered to layout your space and create detailed floor plans and elevations. We then invite you into the showroom to review the initial design concepts and detailed project scope. This comprehensive presentation will review the recommended design and materials for your project. This iterative process of concept development and review continues until the design is complete.
04. Final Selections & Pricing
Once the design is finalized, we will work with you to select the materials and products that will be used for your project. We then review a detailed a budget sheet based on the project scope and selected materials. Upon approval, we order all the necessary materials to complete your project and create a detailed schedule for your job.
05. Project Installation
Throughout the installation process, our installers work alongside your designer and project manager to ensure every detail comes together. We handle all deliveries of materials from our warehouse to the jobsite and make sure your design is implemented exactly how it was envisioned. At the end of the install, we conduct a post-project walkthrough to review your new space and answer any questions that you have.

“Everyone told me you could do a kitchen remodel on your own and a designer was expensive. Here is the thing, it was simple, so MONEY WELL SPENT and this is from a miser when it comes to anything. The process was simple, they took care of everything. We didn't have to find an electrician and a plumber and a tile guy, they just did it all. So if you are looking to do a kitchen remodel, or a bath remodel I guess they do, this was the simplest, easiest way. Not the cheapest, but it was worth the money we spent easily in convenience. They even worked with my wife on a crazy back splash idea, not making it seem like a nuisance but they were as excited as she was.”

“It would be unfair to characterize this establishment as anything but a art institute for your home. The abilities of each and every member of this organization qualifies as an expert in design and building. Derek Pino worked tirelessly on our behalf to design and deliver a work of art in our home. The plan was to integrate two rooms into one cohesive unit and was accomplished unquestionably. Perfect timing . Perfect products. Great company, with great people. You cannot find the products this company has any where between Buffalo and Westchester county. Period.”
“We hired Concept II upon recommendation of our neighbors, who had redone their kitchen and a bathroom. Karen, our very competent and unflappable designer at Concept II, helped us plan a complete renovation of our master bathroom and then our kitchen. The whole process was amazingly easy. Karen was extremely helpful with her ideas and also willing to make adjustments when we requested them. She was very organized. All the materials were always delivered when they were needed, and we never had any delays. As a matter of fact, both projects took only about three or four weeks each. Friends were surprised by how smoothly everything went. The workers were so nice that I actually missed them when they were gone!”

“We could not be more pleased with our beautiful new kitchen that was designed and installed by Concept II. The total renovation of our kitchen was completed on time and within budget. In the early design process, Concept II listened to what we wanted and together we developed a great kitchen. Our work was completed under the direction of Jim Krause, a general contractor in Fairport, NY, who is outstanding. The renovation went exactly as planned. It has been a pleasure to work with the entire team and we highly recommend them. Ted Fox, the Concept II cabinet installer, deserves special mention as he is one of the most meticulous workers we have seen.”
Stewart & Barbara Agor
“Concept II did an outstanding job in the renovation of our bathroom. Derek worked with us on design, listening carefully to what we thought we wanted, guiding us through selection of fixtures and colors, and gently steering us away from some of our original ill-conceived notions. The remodeler did his job professionally and carefully, with a focus on quality all the way and with the flexibility to incorporate suggestions---ours and his own---as we went along. The result is that a very small bathroom now has a bright, attractive, open feeling, making it seem roomer than it really is. As part of the renovation, we installed some Toto products, rightly known for their high quality. Over a year after the project was complete, a problem arose with one of them. Ross---the owner of Concept II---guided us toward a resolution and stood ready to help in any way he could. And Toto itself gave us outstanding support, even though the product's warranty period had expired.”
